  • Mark listed and sold my home

      Mark Petersen is an exceptionally professional realtor. His attention to detail is impeccable. He is communicative and informative about every aspect of the purchasing and selling process.

    • Mark helped me buy a home

        Mark was key in guiding us to the best location and purchase of our home. A true professional with local roots and knowledge. We would not hesitate to use Mark again in the future. Recommend!

      • Mark listed and sold my home

          Mark is absolutely amazing. He is very detailed in his explanations of all different types of things from paperwork to a particular process within the real-estate business. The follow-up, the attention to detail, the recommendations, the ideas, the willingness to brainstorm with us, the ability to explain things in different ways, the support, everything was more than what we could have hoped for. I would recommend Mark to anybody.

        • Mark listed and sold my home

            “It was very important to me that the realtor who sold my unique property be knowledgeable about the area and experienced with 1031 exchanges, but almost as important, I wanted a person I could totally trust and with whom I could communicate easily and honestly (and apparently, frequently). After my first conversation with Mark, I knew that he was just the right fit for me; a really nice human being, very thorough and organized, understanding of the kind of shepherding that I needed. Mark presented me with a timeline, thoroughly researched comparable properties, set the sale price, launched the marketing of the property and essentially found a buyer within the first day the property was listed. I would unreservedly recommend Mark Peterson to anyone who needed a completely professional real estate agent.”

          • Mark listed and sold my home

              Mark worked extremely hard under tough conditions to get this home sold. I was out of town during the entire transaction and he worked closely with my inspectors and contractors to deliver a clean transaction. He was also able to procure 3 offers within its first week of being listed and the home sold for over the asking price. He is the guy to go to for residential real estates sales on the Monterey Peninsula.

            • Mark listed and sold my home

                We recently worked with Mark Peterson to sell our home in Monterey, and we are now working with him to find our next home in the area. Mark and his team did a fantastic job of marketing and pricing the house, and ran a very efficient and effective sale process. He has great relationships, his knowledge of the local market is outstanding, and he is always personable and helpful. We recommend Mark without reservation.

              • Mark listed and sold my home

                  An excellent experience. He always went above and beyond to help with the whole process. Would highly recommend!

                • Mark helped me buy a home

                    I’ve always wondered if anyone actually reads the fine print in contracts. Mark does, and that says it all about his thoroughness and attention to details. Mark’s in-dept analytic understanding of the real estate market and ability to understand personal needs, was the key reason we ended up with a house in Carmel Valley that exceeded our expectations. We wouldn’t have acquired this dream home without Mark’s steady, yet gentle direction. During the process Mark became a trusted and respected friend that we recommend immensely.

                  • Mark is an exceptional agent from both the seller and buyer perspective. He exemplifies what it means to show up for his clients best interests and patiently guides every step of every transaction with utmost efficiency. We appreciate his ability to resource an extensive relationship network and authentically build new connections that directly impact whether a deal will get done or not. Mark is genuine, thoughtful and calm, but most importantly his expertise gets it done!
