Cortez’s top 3% of agents do 831 real estate transactions per year. Compare that to the average agent who does transactions a year — the top agent completes 79.6% more transactions!

Marcus Vanzant
Marcus & Company Realty
About Marcus

We are a dedicated Group of professionals working together as a team to get you to SOLD! I have always had a love for real estate. Growing up with parents in the industry and having a passion for marketing, it was hard not to. I got my start in real estate like most do the traditional way - alone. After a lifetime of watching other agents and then practicing it myself, I realized the only way to provide the ultimate in customer service is to build a team of highly-trained experts, hand-picked for their market savvy, customer service, honesty, integrity and possessing a dedication to their core values and family. It seems that every other industry has figured this team approach out from your attorney to your doctor, and from your accountant to your mechanic, why haven’t REALTORS®? Today, my focus is on putting the right people in place in order to help you become a homeowner in the right way – making sure your home buying and selling process is a blessing and not a challenge.
