Client Testimonials

Here is what clients have said about us:

I usually don't endorse or review anything or anyone, but Mark deserves recognition for his hard work. He helped me price the house according to the market to get what I want and help out a buyer at the same time. Mark is a solid kind of guy who knows how to get stuff done, quick. I appreciate his hard work and helping us with the transaction of our house. I would definitely recommend him to my friends and family and to you because I took the time to write this! On a side note, he does great artwork! -Arwinder

What a positive experience we had with working with Mark Waterman on purchasing our home. We met with him one time and he took us around to view some homes and we were able to establish our needs and wants with him for what we were looking for to buy. My husband and I were moving to California from Washington and were not able to come to California just to view homes and instead relied on Mark to find us a home with with specifications. He did that and we actually purchased our home without actually personally seeing the home. That is trust! Then with the closing of our home the date got moved and we would have been stranded with our moving trucks for 3 additional days if Mark had not worked it out with the sellers for us to gain early access to the home so that we could unload the trucks. I would refer anyone to Mark who is looking at buying a home as he will have your back and he is very responsive to returning calls and walking you through all the processes of purchasing a home- Kathy and Brian

The very first time I contacted Mark and expressed interest in getting our house on the market, he came over that same day and our house was listed the following day. He was very professional, proactive, and kept us updated all the time. He has an awesome team and his photographer was exceptional. True to his words, we were able to list and close on our house in no time! I highly recommend him to anyone interested in purchasing or listing their house. He definitely knows his stuff. -Isaac and Vanessa

Mark is a true professional from the first meeting. He came prepared and answered all our questions. Highly motivated and got down to business immediately. My house sold within the first day. We are very pleased with him. In the future if we decide to sell or buy another home in Northern California he will be our first phone call. You won't be disappointed. Thanks, Mark! -Linda

 Mark worked with my wife and I when we were in the process of buying our first home. On a professional level, he is knowledgeable, well organized and responsive. On a personal level he was a great guy to have by our side, someone who we felt we could trust and someone who was really fun to be around. I would highly recommend this agent to others who are interested in buying a home.- Sayer

Mark helped me buy a home in Sacramento - he did such a great job helping me through that process, I decided to work with him when I needed to sell. He is the most responsive and helpful real estate professional I have ever worked with. I would recommend working with Mark without hesitation. -Sonnet

Based on our experience, I'm confident that Mark's knowledge of the Sacramento Area Real Estate Market, Honesty, Negotiation skills, and Expertise are exceptional. He educated us on the process and continued to be very responsive to any question we had during the entire process. Any issues that popped up, were immediately resolved due to Mark's vast base of resources. We had our home in contract within 3 days and completed the sale within 30 days. I would definitely use his services again and would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a well prepared and professional RE Agent. -Gino & Natalya

Mark was wonderful to work with. He is very responsive and knowledgeable about the Sacramento area. He was able to quickly sell our house and find a new one that we are very happy with. -Kaisa and Ryan

My husband and I were selling a house and buying a new one at the same time, as many do; however, I had some bad experience with realtors in the past and with my very busy work schedule I was not willing to mess around. It is important to know the mindset I was in when I first met Mark. In the first meeting with Mark, I let him know the troubles I had in the past and that what I needed was not to have my time wasted looking at houses I could not afford in areas I was not interested in living. In addition, I wanted to know exactly what I could do to my house to get it sold quickly. Mark not only met, he exceeded all of my expectations and restored my faith in his profession. Mark was also very honest and willing to let my husband and I know of houses in areas we had chosen we would not like, and showed us houses in areas we had overlooked. We sold our house and purchased our new house (in an area Mark recommended) in a very short amount of time. The process was smooth and drama free. If I could have given him 6 stars out of 5 on this survey...I would have. We will be using Mark again in the near future when we sell our rental house. - Todd and Hope

Mark did a great job and got me the house I wanted by working hard with the seller. If I would have had to outbid the other bidder I would not have been able to afford it. It was just the 7th house I looked at. He knew which houses were not worth my time, and which were. Thanks Mark- Sashim

Mark was extremely helpful and informative throughout the process of selling our house. His suggestions for preparing our house. It sold extremely quickly, and the process was simple and seamless. More important, Mark was always available for any and all questions I had about the process. I would easily do business with him again, and would refer anyone I know to him. In fact, I am already talking to him about selling a rental that I have in a different area.- Todd

 I was going through a divorce with my wife and we needed to sell the home in a hurry. I found Mark on Zillow and contacted him. Mark is a very pleasant and friendly individual and he made the whole process a lot easier. He determined a good listing price and had professional photos taken of my home. They must have helped as we went into contract less than a week later. His communication was great and he was a big deal in getting the job done. I would definitely recommend Mark to anyone. He's just a very down to earth, like-able person who knows what he is doing. - Tyler

My Review and Highest Recommendation for Mark Waterman of Waterman Real Estate: My experience with Mark was to say the least a whirlwind experience, I was searching off and on for a specific home in my area, I found one for sale and inquired to see it, Mark responded and we went to look at the house. I immediately fell in love with it because I was already in love with this particular floor plan in the Churchill Downs area. But, Mark wasn't so impressed, he saw things that I overlooked. He politely pointed out some items of concern, I was not hearing it and it was overpriced but again I ignored it. We went back a couple of times, and I started to see what he was talking about. In the meantime we put my house up for sale and I several inquires and offers immediately. I got an offer over the asking price within 24 hours. But, there was still something wrong with the purchase of the "other house", after explaining my needs, he then pointed to the home I am in now. The process was all done within 30 days, the sale of my home and the purchase of my dream home. He was there through the entire process with the lenders, the other agents and even when we had a "no sale" scare. I highly recommend Mark Waterman to anyone who is looking for an Real Estate Agent. He works tirelessly through the entire process. Respectfully and Honestly submitted. -Sophie

I was ready to give up on purchasing a home; losing deal after deal. Looking at homes that were not on my "want list", not running comps, and having me rather than the agent setting the bidding price. My loan officer suggested Mark Waterman. He listened to my "want list" and provided me with listings that were in great neighbors for the price. When I found a home that was previously active, Mark jumped into action. An offer was made that evening after viewing the home. It closed within 21 days! His pace, integrity and knowledge helped me secure a great price. After we moved in, we had a water backup problem due to inactivity of the drainage line. He was on it in no time at all. He had the owner come out to try to fix it that night. In addition, Mark arranged for city workers to check the sewer lines the next day along with a plumber that Mark paid for himself. Mark also came out the evening we had the problem and the next day to check that we were okay. I whole-heartedly recommend Mark if your looking for an agent who listens, acts quickly and will go the extra mile to get you the home of your dreams. -Denise

Mark called me within minutes after I sent a request to him. When we met the next day, He knew the area and said what he would list my house at and what he expected to get. Although I thought he was crazy, He did exactly that! I feel he sold my house above and beyond my expectations. He was sensitive to my needs, respected the workarounds for showing the house and kept me calm through this transition. I was very impressed with his knowledge and his kind nature. I highly recommend utilizing Mark to sale or help you buy a home. He will get you top dollar with your sale. Mark is the Best!!!! Thanks you so much!! -Deana
