  • Jonathan helped me buy a home

      Put simply, he's the best!!

    • Jonathan listed and sold my home

        Jonathan Marks is the best. Jonathan guided us through the home buying process when we purchased our first home. Years later, once our needs changed Jonathan helped us navigate selling our first home and purchasing another home. Jonathan’s positivity and kindness makes him incredibly easy to work with and spend time with as you search for the right home. Once you find “the place”, he is all in to help make it happen. Jonathan’s compassion for his clients doesn’t end once he has helped you buy or sell a home, he is a trusted resource for recommendations for everything from decorators to locksmiths. I highly recommend working with Jonathan. He is diligent, kind, communicative and patient. He has a wealth of experience that he will utilize to ensure you have a positive real estate experience.

          Jonathan is just simply a joy! He is a great listener, down to earth and truly cares about you! He tries to really understand you, so he can find the best. 10/10, a standup realtor!

        • Jonathan helped me buy a home

            Jonathan Marks represented us with the purchase of our beautiful house in San Francisco. Jonathan was professional, experienced, provided great and useful guidance and ultimately facilitated a very smooth and successful transaction. I would recommend working with Jonathan without second thoughts!

          • Jonathan helped me buy a home

              Jonathan and his team are fantastic. I was a first time homebuyer, and Jonathan guided me wonderfully. He was measured, calm, and helpful through this incredibly difficult and challenging process. Anytime I had a question, he would respond immediately (or within the hour.) I could not have asked for better.

            • Jonathan helped me buy a home

                We feel so lucky to have met Jonathan when we started our home-search-journey! He's so skilled, professional, and just generally "on it" in so many ways. Buying a first home can be confusing and stressful. Having someone like Jonathan on our team made a huge difference, and I'd recommend him in an instant to anyone else who is searching! Aside from being an A++ real estate agent, Jonathan is also a super smart, sweet, kind, and easy-going person who immediately put us both at ease. Go with Jonathan!

              • Jonathan helped me buy a home

                  Jonathan is the perfect real estate agent and a wonderful, genuine human being. He and his great staff at the Marks Realty Group helped us find our first home in the crazy San Francisco real estate market and made what can be a difficult and stressful experience quite fun. We felt like we had a good friend supporting us every step of the way. Communication was great and his knowledge of the market and the process second to none. We found him quite by chance at an open house and consider it the luckiest thing that happened to us in our search for home. Hire Jonathan and the Marks Realty Group-- you won't regret it!!!

                • Jonathan helped me buy a home

                    Jonathan Marks is not only a fantastic real estate agent, he is also a wonderful human being and a joy to work with. All of our experiences with him as a real estate agent were highly professional. He explained everything to us and was always patient and immediately available. He has a wealth of incredible experience and insight that helped us sell our home. He also helped us to be the winning bid in a very competitive market on the purchase of our new home. This home is a real dream come true and we could not have done it without Jonathan’s help. We would always use Jonathan if we ever had any other real estate transactions we wanted to make. We would also recommend him to friends, knowing they would be in excellent, trusted and extremely capable hands.

                  • Jonathan helped me buy a home

                      Jonathan and his team are fantastic! A+ service, always available and super good at explaining the process, helping make tough decisions and getting the job done. Couldn't give a higher recommendation.

                    • Jonathan helped me buy a home

                        Had a great experience working with Jonathan as he helped me find the perfect home for me here in Marin. Listened to what I wanted in a dream home, and he found it for me, and helped us close in record time. Super smooth transaction and after the close, has helped me with the little things of getting settled in. Delighted to know him and highly recommend!

                      • Jonathan helped us navigate the incredibly competitive and daunting bay area market (specifically, SF proper and Marin) for nearly a year. He stuck with us, provided encouragement and ultimately helped us close on an amazing place in the Inner Richmond.He is incredibly knowledgeable and patient and won't be afraid to challenge some of your assumptions and opinions. Strongly recommend!

                      • After more than eight months of search for our first house, I can say that we bought the house of our dreams in Sausalito, and we can't be happier. We can't thank Jonathan enough for his thoroughness during this whole process: quick responses any time we needed something from him, simplified our offer processes to the minimum, and gave us full honest feedback every time. I will choose Jonathan for my next house guaranteed!

                      • We spent a great deal of time searching for the right Realtor to sell our home. We were looking for someone who was responsive and genuinely listened to what was important to us. Most important to us was to find someone we can put our trust in and had our best interests in mind. For these reasons, after screening several agents we decided to work with Jonathan. Once we began to work with him we consistently found Jonathan to be very professional, knowledgeable and very experienced at handling any complication that arose. We preferred not to have to do much work or go to much expense having to stage the house and then have endless open house days. Jonathan came up with a plan that allowed us to sell our house, receiving multiple offers, within two weeks of his plan going into action. All that without having to go to market. Thank you Jonathan for your help and guidance and making this an enjoyable experience.

                      • My family relocated to Marin from Brooklyn, NY with, quite frankly, zero-zippity-zip knowledge of northern California. Thankfully, husband found Jonathan on Yelp and hired him (based on all the rave reviews alone!), and he didn't disappoint. From the moment we landed in Marin, Jonathan kept us abreast of all relevant listings, and went out of his way to get us in literal and proverbial doors as early as possible. He has a shrewd knowledge of the Marin market, and he helped us deftly navigate its nuances (ex. when we could expect a windfall of listings; how to handle houses with "emotional" amenities; the negotiation tactics preferred by NorCalifornians). As such, we landed our dream house in three months. Read that again. THREE. MONTHS. (Listen, I know we're new around here, but from what we've heard, that's more or less impossible.) Jonathan has many endearing qualities as a person, but what I most appreciated about him as a realtor was his deep-cut knowledge of all of the Marin neighborhoods. He took his time, got to know me and my family, and made informed suggestions that ultimately landed us in the perfect place (which I honestly hadn't considered prior). ANYWAY, you should probably hire Jonathan, because he's the best. Bonus: After he secures your dream home, he'll also hook you up with all his secret fixer-upper folks who, thusfar, have been just as amazing as Mr. Marks himself. P.S. He is very tall. (Prepare yourself.)

                      • Jonathan was just fantastic during our home purchase experience. We started looking in Marin after having lived in the South Bay for a couple of years, and being only 2 years new to the Bay Area having moved from the East Coast. Navigating the real estate experience in the US is totally new to us and there were many pieces we had to learn. We could immediately tell that Jonathan was an expert in the area. He has such a calm, pleasant demeanor which is a huge positive when doing something as stressful as buying a home! He also read the market very well and his feedback about how to price our offer was spot on. We never felt rushed by him and never like we were just another deal. During the whole process we knew that we were in the hands of a consummate professional who was keeping our best interests in mind (for example, he made sure we went in with all contingencies even though the South Bay had trained us to think that we had to give them up to get a strong offer!). He also connected us with equally wonderful and helpful mortgage and insurance brokers which made the process go smoothly. We highly recommend Jonathan and look forward to seeing more of him after our move to Marin!

                      • Jonathan is absolutely amazing! My friend from work had previously bought a house in Marin with Jonathan and absolutely raved about his experience, recommending him to my husband and I. As first time buyers, Jonathan was wonderful. He helped us understand the process, and was always available to answer all of our questions. He made everything from visiting homes, making a bid, and then closing incredibly smooth. He has continued to support us after buying the house with recommendations for making a few renovations. In the end, I cannot recommend Jonathan highly enough!

                      • If you're buying a house, without hesitation I recommend Jonathan and his team. As complete newbies to the home buying process, Jonathan walked us through every step with patience and not an ounce of condescension. He's a genuine guy who obviously really enjoys what he does. He always made time for us and hustled. Our first bid (not accepted) was put together in about 12 hours when someone else put in a preemptive bid. Jonathan handled it all with grace and competence.He has great relationships with other realtors in the area which makes everything easier. In fact the seller's agent actually told us that he was the difference in us getting the house, the bids were so close the difference was working with someone she trusted.His team is also great. In RE transactions, "there's always a piano" (Google it!), and ours was no exception. When we discovered a gas leak during final walk through, Jonathan and especially his team (thanks Miesha!) stepped in to get it fixed and it only delayed our closing by 3 days. And his support hasn't stopped, even after closing. Jonathan continues to help us out with recommendations on everything from where to shop for furniture to which movers to hire. Work with Jonathan, you won't regret it

                      • I love working with Jonathan. He represented us when we bought our home in 2008, and we were thrilled to use him again in 2019 to sell the property. He recommended a great stager, and has many resources available to make a house shine. We had a very fast escrow, and even though there were a few challenges, Jonathan held our hands and we sped through to the close. He is ever-gracious, unruffled under stress, and has a can-do attitude. I felt totally protected and calm throughout the sale process. He is a great agent! Thank you!

                      • I can't say enough about our wonderful experience with Jonathan to buy our first home. Jonathan's guidance and knowledge of the market was invaluable, and his suggestions on how to approach our offer truly made the difference in standing out to the sellers. I also appreciated his warmth and empathy for the overwhelming nature of being first time home buyers, and his ability to cut through the confusion and chaos with clear insights and recommendations. As a bonus, Jonathan's network has proved invaluable finding high-quality vendors to help make our home ours.

                      • My husband and I first met Jonathan two years ago when he helped us purchase our current home. He made that process, smooth and easy, as a result when it came time to sell my mother's house, I reached out to him to see if he could help. He met with me and gave him his honest opinion on what was needed and what the good points (and bad points) were. WE came up with a plan that worked for my family and had the potential to get us the most money for our buck. The people he hired to do the work were professional and reasonably priced. They were easy to work with and flexible enough to meet my needs. Before the house went on the market, Jonathan was working to create interest in the home. The house was on the market for less than a week when it sold for over asking price. I am sure that when my husband and I need to sell our home we will turn to Jonathan. Jonathan cares about his clients.
