Mark Ross Reviews
I enjoyed working with Mark to find and purchase a home in the Portland area while living in CA. He was very helpful, knowledgeable and professional every step of the way. He listened to my needs and provided listings that fit my criteria. His immense knowledge of the Portland area made a huge difference in searching for homes that fit the needs of my family. He was patient and guided me through the process of bidding on a foreclosed property. He made the process so very simple for me because his experience speaks volumes in the way he treats his clients and the service he provides. I had to trust him to give me clear, honest direction and feedback since I was in a remote location. He didn't let me down and I am very happy with my new home. I would highly recommend Mark to anyone looking to buy a home in the Portland area.
