★★★★★
"My husband and I really enjoyed working with Marc. He was patient, trustworthy, and never pushy, even though we were clients that took a long time to make decisions. In fact, his expert opinion was helpful in deciding to walk away from properties on multiple occasions. We really appreciated his analytics; they we key in staying informed. Marc was the consummate professional and went above and beyond in finding a buyer for our city condo. We would highly recommend him!"

★★★★★
"This is the guy you want with you when you are purchasing a property. Marc is very professional, responsive, and always has is mask. He provides great insight to how the property has been built and maintained as well as knowing the areas of interest really well. It was always fun viewing properties with Marc and we definitely felt very comfortable when he was in our corner during negotiations. Moreover, his research and analytics helped us confirm we were making the right choice. I have to mention his purchase/closing checklist as it really helped us navigate the closing phase especially since we were 1st time home buyers. If you are lucky enough to have Marc on your team, I promise you won't be disappointed."

★★★★★
"Marc handled our search with professionalism and care. He got to know our needs very well and leveraged his network to get us first looks on many interesting properties, both on and off market. When he spotted deficiencies he was also candid in bringing them up and advising against them. Definitely would recommend to anyone we know."

★★★★★
"Marc made the complicated process of buying our first home easy and fun. He was always there to answer any question no matter how silly it seemed to me at the time. He was consistently kind, professional, and exceedingly helpful with anything he could reasonably do. Went out of his way during COVID to make us feel safe and comfortable while viewing properties. There was never any pressure and truly felt like he was working for us. We got the home we wanted, at the price we wanted. Marc is a great agent and We cannot recommend Marc enough!"

★★★★★
"Marc Zale has been an excellent agent! We have only worked with a few for rental properties in the past and he is far the best agent we have ever worked with. He helped us through the entire process. His best quality is honesty and being trustworthy. He never pushes his clients to make a decision or sugar coats anything, and he treats it like it’s a decision he is making for himself. He will give you an honest opinion of a property with personal experiences, and give you all the pros and cons to guide you in making the best decision for you and your family. Buying a house is a daunting task and we were first time buyers. Having Marc as our agent put an ease to our minds that no matter what we will find the perfect property for us, which we are very happy to say that we did! Thank you so much Marc!"
