Mark Deering's Reviews & Ratings

Tell us about your experience with Mark Deering

  • Mark listed and sold my home

      Mark sold my home and found me another home in a couple weeks. I very strongly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell their homes.

    • Mark did a great job helping us sell our home. He ever got us in contact with a lot of great people who helped us decide what upgrades to do to our home prior to putting it on the market.

      - Breanna Hoover-Mais
    • Mark was professional and sensitive to our needs in selling our home from day one. He offered good advice and made us aware of our options throughout the process. He showed genuine care and respect towards us.

      - Todd Aleksynas
    • The sale of our home was particularly difficult as we had multiple accepted offers fall through. He did not let us get discouraged as he helped us along the way. Mark was persistent in following up with other realtors who had buyers that were potential fits for our home. Mark did not sit and wait for our home to sell, he made the calls and connections within his network that allowed us to get to the finish line.

      - Matt Schultz
    • Mark helped my wife and I find our first home while we were pregnant for our first child. Being that it was our first home we didn't know what to expect or look for in a house. Mark was very helpful in this aspect. When we looked through houses he pointed out the pros and cons of each and was very informative on the surrounding area information like school districts. He was also very flexible with when he could meet us and worked around our schedules. I would highly recommend Mark and I have to all my friends. We will definitely be using him again in the future.

      - Joshua Hill
    • The strategy, pricing, and advice that Mark provided were spot on. He came to us with a game plan that would best serve us. He was very upfront with the options, the risks, and his recommendations. He was spot on. We would have netted less money without using him. Great experience.

      - Toben
    • Mark is AMAZING to work with. He is very knowledgable in all areas of the selling process. Our home sold in 3 days !!!! Even when dealing with difficult buyers Mark made the negotiating and selling of the home smooth .

      - Courtney Worthing
    • The three months leading up to actually listing the house Mark was helpful with where and what to focus on to get the house in the best shape for pictures and viewings. We listed the week after Memorial day and we had a lot of attention and we sold the house in less than 4 weeks on the market. The process was very easy for us and Mark or his office would get back to us in a timely fashion when things needed attention

      - Phis Szczpanski
    • Through several weeks of searching, then finding, then negotiating, then dealing with seemingly impossible situations with a bank and a title company, Mark was always prompt, kind, knew just what to do, never complained about anyone or anything, and answered all of our questions. He is a well informed agent who is every bit a gentleman. I would recommend and trust him without reservation.

      - Mr. and Mrs. Hovingh
    • Mark was very professional and helpful! Since I am new to the area he helped with lots of others needed information... utility numbers etc Always went the extra mile! Would use him again and recommend him to others! Great realtor!!

      - Beverly Baldridge
    • My husband and I contacted Mark because he sold our neighbor's home. He listened to our needs and developed a strategy for selling our home of 34 years. He also arranged for us to see other properties and negotiated a fair deal. We closed on our home the same day we closed on our new place. Mark is very knowledgable and professional. We would not hesitate recommending him to anyone in West Michigan.

      - Sandy Griffin
    • Mark was helping me sell my home that was upside down. We had a buyer in line after several months and while the house didn't sell (failed short sale process), Mark did a fantastic job on his end to help me understand the situation and reference experts in the industry that could help with questions and help with other processes in the lengthy short sale process. More than anything, Mark was very kind but honest on his approach so I was able to get a clear picture of the situation. He provided plenty of support for his position by performing adequate market research and using his contacts to get a more clear picture of the situation.

      - Chad Rector
    • He did the transaction for our home. Neither buyer or seller had a realtor and we used him as an expert in the deal. It was very easy and smooth. Would definitely recommend him.

      - Brad Hassevoort
    • Every time I used mark as my realtor it was a great experience. He's honest and he is straight forward. He is someone I can trust and I will hire him in the future I'm sure.

      - Michael Speet
    • Mark was very helpful in buying my first home. He was the realtor for both the seller and (me) the buyer. Very knowledgeable of the area and constantly keeping me updated and sending info on what to expect as the process of buying this home was ongoing. I would and will recommend him to anyone buying or selling a home. Thanks Mark for all you have done.

      - Ryan Figger
    • Mark was excellent, he knew which area to direct us to as well as what to look for in the homes. He brought along a camera so we could have photos of each house to help us remember. He met us on short notice and helped us close quickly. We reccomend him highly.

      - Brienne
    • the internet is our newest and best form of contacting others and when looking for a Realtor I wanted an agent who represented this marketing tool. Mark Deering fit the bill and then some. I was able to sign documents from my computer or phone, saw advertising on my 2 houses for sale that exceeded expectations. Mark was available to answer questions, informed me of the progressive expectations of procedures involved in selling AND THEN HELPED ME THROUGH A DIFFICULT BUYING PROCEDURE OF MY NEXT HOME! Great Realtor with a great assistant... you will not be disappointed with your agent when you use Mark!

      - Diana Darling
    • We have now bought a house, sold a house, and bought land through Mark. Cool guy, honest, helpful... And we're not the easiest customers to deal with! I recommend him to anyone looking for a great realtor.

      - Brian and Jill
    • I'm currently settling into the new home I bought through the Mark Deering real estate team. As I'm settling in, I can't help but have moments in which I'm overwhelmed with gratitude to my God to be in the place I am. A year ago, I would have never had it on my radar that I would be a homeowner. But when I started to go into the market for a home in January (2015), it was as if I were spinning my wheels. That in large part was due to working with an agent who did not have the professionalism, knowledge, responsiveness, and negotiation skills that I wanted and needed to seal the deal. After I fired this agent, I called up Mark at 10:30 pm, thinking I would just leave a voice mail for him to receive in the AM. But to my surprise, he answered and, by the end of the conversation, had me scheduled to show the home that I now own the next morning. By 11 am, the offer was on the table, accepted, and I was on the road to being a first time home owner. Just so thankful that God brought the Mark Deering real estate team my way. Couldn't have had a better real estate experience! #glorytoGod #thankful #Remax #teamDeering

    • Mark is a very professional and knowledgeable agent. He made the entire process quick and enjoyable. He takes the time on any day to show you around, and we really appreciate his honestly. We appreciated his honestly on the quickness of the market, but also his willingness to listen and not push us into a decision. I have and will continue to recommend Mark to anyone who is looking to purchase a home.

      - Eric Nucherlein
    • I am a lawyer and I have sent many clients to Mark to be the seller's agent or to give them a CMA. He treats my clients right. He has never let me down. I don't sent him clients hoping he will send his clients to me in return. It would be smart marketing to simply choose a person who does business that way and turn a blind eye to the ethics or skills of the realtor I use. No, I send clients to Mark because my clients need an honest realtor who will quickly take them seriously. That is Mark. I am thankful to have found him. My clients feel the same way. That's what counts for me.

      - Connie Brigman
    • FROM START TO FINISH HIS PATIENCE AND UNDERSTANDING AND WILLINGNESS TO HELP ME THRU THIS PROCESS WAS LIKE HAVING A FRIEND NEARBY AT ALL TIMES!HE DOES HIS JOB WITH INTEGRITY AND CARRIES THAT THRU TO HIS EVERYDAY LIFE!WONDERFUL PERSON - WONDERFUL REALTOR.

      - Tena Barke
    • So far I have used Mark Deering and his team in both the purchase and sale of my first home, and the purchase of a second home. Working with Mark is pleasant, he makes selling or purchasing your home as worry free as possible. There are so many things to consider or take care of when you're going through either of these processes, but Mark explains things thoroughly and provides resources to aid in getting ready for buying or selling your house. Mark also takes advantage of available technology to make your experience smooth and efficient.In short, Mark is a great guy and an excellent realtor; I recommend him to everyone I know who's thinking of buying/selling their house!

      - Andi Hansen
    • Mark and his team were not just buying agents, they were buying coaches. Mark listened to our lists of needs and wants, and helped us find not only what we needed, but what we wanted as well. He explained the process along the way and helped talk us through the pros and cons of the homes we considered for purchase. Every suggestion he made was backed with logical explanations. He also teams with wonderful service providers related to the home buying process. When Mark gives a recommendation, it is honest and true. Mark utilized communication tools that allowed us to easily communicate with the many people involved with the process. Everyone was in the know every step of the way!

      - Anna Mitchell
    • A great help in finding the home of our dreams! Walked with us each step of the way & explained each detail/possibility/scenario of the home-buying process in way that was easy to understand. Mark's the go-to-guy when you need to buy a home in West Michigan :)

      - Katey

    • I would like to thank Mark and his team, especially Justin for helping me find my first home! Justin was always available when I needed him and I was constantly asking questions and he would always answer very quickly. If there was a home I wanted to see, he would make it happen as soon as he could. He as honestly a great realtor and would recommend to anyone. I have already recommended to two other people and would keep recommending Justin Glover.

      - Carlos Delgado
    • Mark and his team was very helpful throughout the sales process, and kept us well informed. We had originally listed as FSBO, but glad we made to jump to a trained professional. They provided professional photography pictures and virtual walk-through. We immediately increased our traffic and had a full price offer within 3 weeks.

      - Michael Farrant

      - Megan Smith
    • I worked with Mark's team Justin, with some help from Jessica and they were fanominal. They knew what they were doing and if he didn't know the answer he sought it find out for me within a couple days and a very fast responsive group. Justin was completely honest with us the entire time while looking at homes no matter what the coast was. They made first time home buying a very easy experience. I would highly recommend any of them.

      - Keontre Miskel
    • Mark and his team was great to work with. He was very organized as to what houses he would show each time we went out. After each showing we would talk about what we liked and didn't like to help tailor our search to find the house we wanted. He helped maneuver through difficult obstacles to make sure we could get a deal done. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a realtor in West Michigan.

      - Matt Lake
    • Although mark and his team helped us buy our first home this was our first buy and sell and just like the first time we went with them they were amazing! So helpful and willing to help. Mark is very knowledgeable which is really good since we were still pretty new at this all.

      - Heidi Leader
    • Mark Deering knows how to make the home buying process smooth, enjoyable, and stress free. My initial connection to the Mark Deering team came through Zillow. From that moment forward, I have had a wonderful experience searching and closing on my home! I am confident in everyone on the Mark Deering team, and will be working with them again in the future!

      - Tanner McAdams
    • We were in a very unique situation with very specific housing needs. As a result, we were in the house hunting process for a long time. Mark not only understood our needs, but he was patient throughout the long process and was supportive to us. In the end, he found us a home that was very suitable to what we needed.

      - Jay Ott
    • Mark Deering has been in the business for a long time. He is honest and someone you can rely on. My fiance and I bought our 1st home with his help, and will definitely use him again. The overall process went way better than I imagined coming into it. His team has many sources of information. They keep in contact and communicate regularly to keep you very much in the loop. I would recommend him and his team to anyone!

      - Jeremy Crego
    • Easy to work with, very helpful in answering questions. VERY good about making contact with sellers to schedule showings quickly and getting all necessary information for each showing.

      - Kayliegh Eely

They were very professional throughout, and available to us when we had questions about the process. Responses were always both prompt and informative. I would recommend this team to anyone looking for a home in greater Grand Rapids.

      - Jean G.
    • I am so glad that we chose Mark as our realtor! He did an excellent job in helping us navigate a fast moving market. He is very personable and answered all of our questions promptly. I was also very impressed with his attention to details. Things like setting up a special facebook group to communicate, giving us a househunting care package with water and snacks, and sending us a thank you gift after we bought our house went a long way to show that he cares about his clients!

      - Diane Lidbeck
    • We went through the buying and selling process with Mark and his team and could not have asked for a better experience! Mark's dedication and patience were greatly appreciated (we probably asked over one million questions....) and he is surrounded by the most awesome team of competent professionals. We felt informed, educated, and respected every step of the way!

      - Steve and Sue
    • Mark sold my house with in a week!!! I owned a rental home in Grand Rapids and asked for Marks help to sell it. He had a professional staging company come out to help change a few things and also hired a professional photographer. With that said the home looked great and we had several showings in the first 5 days. The 5th day we got an offer, countered and it was immediately was accepted. We closed the home with in 3 weeks after the offer. I would recommend Mark to everyone and as a matter of fact have referred family to him. His team member Jessica also helped me out through the process and she was great even with all my questions. If your looking to sell give Mark a call.

      - Mike Cordell
    • Mark's team was very friendly and helpful in getting our first house. Mark eased our nervousness with his knowledge and experience. I would definitely recommend the Mark Deering team to anyone looking for a new house.

      - Amanda Grant
    • Mark and his team's knowledge helped us through some challenges, and helped to expedite the process. Their weekly updates sent to us were a real surprise & delight feature that kept us informed.

      - Randy Schonfield
    • Not only did Mark get top dollar for my home he gave great advise when negotiating the purchase of my new home. In a competitive market it is so important to go in with a strong offer. My home sold the same day I listed and my first offer was accepted on my new house. Anyone can put up a for sale sign and throw a price out there. Mark uses his experience and does the research necessary to get the job done right. Mark and his team made the whole process very easy and they kept me updated every step of the way. I have, and will continue to, recommended Mark to friends and family.

      - Diane Miller
    • Mark was excellent at finding a house for us. He listened to everything I said and found the perfect match. He also helped me a lot by assisting me with finding a great lender. I appreciate his updates whenever he got them. All my questions were answered before they were asked. Best agent ever!!

      - Kris Arnoldink
    • Mark and his team were so professional and were only a phone call e-mail or a text away. When my husband had medical issues he was very patient and gracious to us. The communication that Mark and his team had-even from Traverse City,made us feel so comfortable and relieved about the sale of our home. His gal that does the staging gave us some excellent tips for what new buyers are looking for. SO THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE REMAX TEAM--we are highly happy and impressed.

      - Dan Groothuis
    • Mark and his team did an outstanding job helping me sell my home and with the negotiation and purchase of my new home. My home sold in record time and at full asking price. Mark made the entire sale/purchase process completely painless and worry free. The value I received exceeded the commissions paid. I highly recommend Mark and will be using him for any future real estate needs

      - Mike Miller
    • Mark helped us buy our first home and we could not have been happier working with him and the team. Each member of the team was involved in our search - tremendous internal communication to make sure all parties stayed well aware of what we wanted and where we were in the process. I was impressed and highly recommend the Mark Deering Team!

      - Ken Pingel
    • Mark and his tem sold my house for $15,000.00 above asking price. They also negotiated on the house I bought for $8,000.00 less than the asking price. Everything went smooth from the start to the end.

      - Chip Bourassa
    • Mark and Jessica are amazing to work with! The whole team is very helpful and knowledgeable, and are very responsive throughout both the entire home selling and home buying process. I wouldn't use anyone else for my realty needs!
