"I first met Russell in 2017 when my husband and I moved to Malibu. His knowledge of the area was awesome as was his patience. After renting for a year, I contacted Russell to buy a home. He took care of me every step of the way and continued to stay in touch over the past 5 years. When it came time to sell for us to move back east, of course I called Russell. Everyone on the team was involved in the process. Nikki, Justin and Jessica were great to work with as they became familiar with our family and dogs as we showed the property. I am very happy with the outcome and recommend them highly. Their knowledge of the market and engagement was outstanding." - Judy

"I highly recommend the team at The Mark and Grether Group in Malibu. Tony, Russell, Nicole, Justin and Nikki are a great team and provided outstanding service on our recent real estate transaction. They are friendly, knowledgeable, and very responsive. I look forward to working with them again in the future!" - Kent

"Russell, Tony, Nicole and Justin make a great team. From start to finish, even though it was a long road, they were communicative, helpful and all round a delight to work with. They always ensured to make sure that our needs were being met, as well as trying to do the best to market our home to buyers. Thank you all for your amazing work!" - Jenny

"We could not have been more pleased with Russell and Tony and the way they handled our off-market purchase of a highly sought-after Malibu townhome. Absolute professionalism in every sense of the word. They truly differentiate themselves from others in the field via a data-driven approach to analyzing price and relevant comps, attentiveness to even the most minor details, and punctuality throughout the process. My wife and I literally cannot speak highly enough of Russell and Tony and would recommend them to anyone that truly values this level of professionalism and service. We were genuinely ecstatic about how they handled a relatively complex transaction. Moreover, we're confident that if we had chosen anyone else to represent us, we would not have enjoyed such a professional experience throughout the process." - Mark

"We have worked with Tony and Russell on three separate occasions now and each time we are more and more grateful to have such an amazing team helping us navigate each real estate purchase and sale. The entire Mark and Grether Team are a joy to work with. They are trustworthy, organized, well prepared, and responsive which allows their clients to act with decisiveness and clarity. I appreciate that they are honest and won't just say something to close the deal. They truly fight for their client's best interest, that's hard to find with typical agents. With each transaction, they have provided incredible value and we look forward to working with them again in the future" - Sarah

"Russell (who was our direct contact) was on top of everything, he educated and guided us through the whole process. He is so Malibu versed in so many ways I think he should run for Mayor. Thanks, Russell! " - Evyen and Pamela

"Tony and Russell assisted my family with the sale of our mother's house after her death. They gave us an honest opinion of value and provided us with a strategy to get the highest price possible with the minimal amount of investment for repairs/staging. The result was a sale in less than 45 days and a price my family was more than happy with. They have excellent local knowledge as well as a first rate support team. " - Dan

"They did an amazing job for me and got things done in the best possible way. Very fun and nice guys to work with, together with their fantastic team I would for sure work with them again. Thank you and goodbye Malibu! " - Mikael

"Tony and Russell seemed to like to work against the odds. Selling an unimproved lot, during a pandemic, while the economy is plunging, after a massive Malibu fire ripped through the area is truly an accomplishment. The price they secured from a cash buyer was very reasonable, and the closing prompt." - Rick
