"Mark looked at my house and gave me comperable recent sales. He made recommendations for pre-sale fix ups gave me what turned out to be a very accurate market price. I had 3 offers over asking price in 2 weeks. He negotiated to eliminate the offeror' contingencies and I had a sale agreement 1 week after the offers. Another similar house in the neighborhood had been on the market for 3 months. Mark has a good team that arranged the required inspections, kept me informed and answered my questions quickly. Mark and his team was very easy to work with and got me a good price for my house. I highly recomend Mark De Tar for a professional, courteous, and realistic realtor." - John

"i was selling my mother’s house after she lived in it for sixty years and Mark DeTar was recommended to me because of his knowledge of the Alum Rock area in which the house is located. I chose him because I liked that he has a history of many transactions in the area and it was my desire for the timing to be quick. At our first meeting, he was professional and friendly and gave a detailed package of information on the property. Even with the added conditions of COVID -19, the market was still running hot and he had a strategy for pricing, timing and readying the house for sale. Though selling our childhood home was an emotional process for me and my siblings, we had no stress with the process because of Mark. He was always quick to respond to any question or concern and he and his whole team took me through the process of house preparation, showings, multiple offers and final closing by anticipating all that was needed and handling it with ease. In the end, we had a very successful outcome because we got a price substantially above asking, as he had advised that we would - pretty awesome. I wholeheartedly recommend Mark DeTar if you're considering buying or selling a home in the valley."

"Highly recommend! Mark helped me sell my parents home in San Jose and is very experienced to deal with the unique real estate market in Silicon Valley. He and his team made the process easy and they were always just a text/ phone call away. After looking at the home, Mark recommended a plan to get the home ready to show, which included minor fixes and updates (e.g. sod, paint, deep clean). He also arranged for staging and professional photos to make the home "pop" in virtual showings (due to COVID). He priced it just right to drive interest. We received multiple offers within one week and ultimately accepted an offer that was over list price. Working with Mark has been a great experience."

"Mark was great to work with as we listed and sold our home. He helped us identify items that would help list our house and show well compared to other homes in the area. This was incredibly helpful since we had moved out of our home when we listed, so he helped with some of the 'house keeping' items by recommending local handymen/cleaners, etc. Overall easy to work with and very responsive whenever we needed him."

"If you're looking for a realtor to sell your home, Mark DeTar is an excellent choice. His knowledge of our neighborhood, its schools and an overall feel for what buyers are looking for when buying a home, were remarkable. One of the many other positive experiences was Mark's ability to work with us. We gave him an outline for how we wanted our house sold and he kindly offered his own suggestions and advice when asked. He doesn't force himself on you and tell you what you need to do. Listen to what he has to say though, as his twenty-five years in the real estate market are extremely valuable! Along with being very professional, Mark is level headed and calm, a great plus when it comes to the stresses of selling your home. He answers your questions, calls, texts in a very timely fashion. He's also friendly, open and warm. Not just attributes you want from someone who you're working closely with, but you know the buyer's will experience as well. Overall, our experience with Mark was wonderful. If you get a chance to work with him and have him sell your home, you will not be disappointed."
