What bigger vote of confidence can we provide Mark Cesare as a first class real estate professional than to highlight that we’ve utilized his services to purchase three (3) San Francisco homes over the past 10 years? Time and time again, Mark has proven to be professionally knowledgeable, extremely responsive, and always available. We’ve appreciated him tailoring his approach to ebbs and flows in the pace our multiple searches. Additionally, Mark has effectively tailored his engagement & advice to our desires & level of knowledge at the time. In at least one situation, Mark taking it upon himself to pro-actively revisit a property and talk to neighbors saved us from finalizing a contract on a house with undisclosed significant issues. Over the years, our relationship with Mark has grown from a chance meeting at an open house to a friend that I consult regularly for advice on both real-estate and life.
Katie and See Yew:
We couldn't be more fortunate than to have Mark Cesare as our realtor. When we decided to buy a home in San Francisco, it was an endeavor into the unknown for us but Mark helped us navigate the process with ease. As first time home buyers in an extremely competitive market, we struggled to settle on a decision about finding the "right" home. Mark helped us look at a variety of homes in numerous neighborhoods so that we could learn what would be best suited for us. We considered many home styles in several price points so that we could offer competitive bids in a seller's market. Mark was patient, never pressuring us to narrow our search options or place a bid. He educated us about not only about home ownership but also neighborhoods, inspection reports, school choices, and future home remodeling options. His keen sense of the San Francisco market and never ending search on our behalf landed us in our dream home. While we consider ourselves lucky to have purchased our home, it was really Mark's persistence and professional network that made us aware of our home upcoming listing on the market in the near future which allowed us to jump on the opportunity and place an early winning bid. Even after moving into our home, Mark has been a resource to us by providing us with recommendations for repair work, assisting us in home emergencies, and ensuring our ongoing happiness with the house. And so while we are very happy in our current home, we would work with Mark again in the future without hesitation and recommend others to do so as well.
Allison and Patrick:
Mark Cesare was an invaluable leader in selling our San Francisco home in 2015. Selling a San Francisco property is so much more than great staging and photographs, which was achieved. The timing, price setting, and scheduling of open houses and private showings were taken into consideration for the marketing plan. The amount of documentation, inspections, and in depth paperwork was daunting, but Mark handled all of these details with great skill. Mark made himself available and came by our home several times per week in the weeks leading up to listing our home to ensure all was going according to plan. Mark handled the showings, bid process, and working with the buyers' agent when the property transition occurred. Because of Mark's knowledge of the San Francisco real estate market and what it takes to transfer property in the county, we had a fabulous experience, and our property sold for 20% over asking price.
We had a fantastic experience working with Mark Cesare to purchase our first home in 2017! His expert knowledge and experience in the San Francisco housing market was invaluable as we were navigating through the daunting process. Buying a home in San Francisco is overwhelming - Mark made it seamless as he guided us through a vast amount of open-houses, documentation, paperwork signing, and inspections. We loved Mark's extremely responsive communication in all steps of the buying process as he was available via phone, email, and in person at a moments notice. His thoughtful and honest approach was such a breath of fresh air. I would strongly recommend Mark to anyone I know looking to buy or sell their home in the San Francisco.
