With David's business background and education he has been able to build one of the top real Estate Sales Teams within Central Florida. Other than leading his team he works mainly with home owners in Central Florida who are trying to get their homes sold for top dollar and within a short period of time! His results in these two areas consistently outperforms the averages in Metro Orlando! For the past five years he has been able to help his sellers get their homes sold for 1 to 4% more (sold to list price) and under contract in half the amount of time than the average in Central Florida. By helping his sellers get their house in top showing condition prior to listing and by providing maximum exposure to 100% of the buyers during the listing period, he is able to create very high demand for their homes which ultimately leads to a higher sales price and being under contract within a shorter period of time. His success can be mainly attributed to the way he does business with his clients; he works more as a consultant than a sales person. By asking his sellers the right questions he is able to find out what's important to them about the selling their house which then enables him to meet and exceed their expectations!

Mark Ramey
Keller Williams Classic Realty
About Mark

Mark Ramey of The Mark Ramey Group, Keller Williams Classic Realty has experience in finance and sales and specializes in residential and investment real estate. He is an active, full-time agent with a large center of influence in the Orlando area. A consistent top performer, Mark achieved the following honors for the past 6 years: Top Listing Agent, Top Selling Agent, Most Closed Units and Highest Closed Volume. I believe in setting goals and accomplishing them. I do this by listening to my clients' needs and desires and keeping them as my goals throughout the process. I am also a firm believer in being realistic about goals. This means I prefer to tell clients who are selling or buying a home what they need to know, rather than what they want to hear. This gives them sound information to make a decision that is best for them, and, in turn, strengthens our relationship for many years to come. As you can probably tell, I love what I do! I consider myself blessed to have had so many people to help sell and buy real estate. I assist with the following: Selling residential or investment properties: I know that the key to a property selling quickly and for the highest price possible takes excellent communication between the listing agent and the seller. We are the eyes and ears of the seller. By giving feedback and information throughout the selling process, I help sellers make good decisions about their property's appearance, price, and marketing that will get the job done. Buying residential or investment properties: I have access to all the listings in the Central Florida area including existing homes, new construction and even "for sale by owner" properties. I specialize in the 4 counties that surround Orlando: Orange, Seminole, Osceola, and Lake. For investors or buyers seeking value, I work with pre-foreclosures on a regular basis. I also have access to outstanding lenders with many different mortgage products to assist with financing the purchase in a way that suits my clients' needs and budgets. When the time comes for you or anyone you know to have assistance from an agent who desires the best for his buyers or sellers, contact Mark Ramey. I can assure you that you and your referrals will experience outstanding service throughout the process because at the end of the day the bottom line is… I care.
