"I would highly recommend Marko to anyone of my closest friends or business partners. Marko is highly skilled in complex transactions like mine from getting HOA "pre" approval for the buyer, to the creative long term lease-back provision so I could stay in my home while I looked for another home. Unlike all the other Realtors I spoke with, Marko told me exactly what my home would sell for and it did....all the others were smoke and mirrors to get the listing. " - C.P.
"Marko is a man of integrity. He grew up in Newport Beach so he knows the area personally and has many contacts in the professional arena. Because he is a realtor and a contractor he can find some of the best values in a variety of locations and due to his knowledge in construction, he can determine the structure of a home to know if it is worth pursuing along with the appropriating pricing. He helped me find my ideal home, negotiated the purchase, and then was able to oversee the facelift. He also has an excellent eye for interior space. With his quality taste, knowledge, and experience, he helped me with everything from fixtures, flooring, stone, appliances, and furniture. " - Janine H.

"I would highly recommend Marko for his work in the Newport Beach real estate market. I was looking to sell my home in the Corona Highlands neighborhood of Corona Del Mar. The house was old and a perfect developer opportunity. Marko used his contacts to shop the property within the local developer community and quickly found a buyer who offered a market price. The resulting transaction was seamless. Marko impressed me with his knowledge of the market and the development process and was very attentive and responsive throughout the process. " - W.N.
