When we decided to sell our first home, we wanted to be sure to find a realtor we could trust and be comfortable with. We were nervous and needed to know that our realtor understood us and always had our interests in mind. We found exactly that in Mark. We knew right away that we could be totally frank with Mark and ask him any question, no matter how trivial it seemed. Mark gave us the professional expertise we wanted and the comforting personal attention we needed. We are confident that when we are ready to find our next home, Mark will be with us every step of the way!

Mark is reliable, smart, professional and personable; he has never missed a deadline or a phone call. More importantly however, he has come through for me time and again over the years with tough love and with a shoulder to lean on. I wouldn’t trust any other realtor to help me buy or sell a home. These are quotes straight from Mark that I will never forget, “I won’t let you buy this house because the finishings are cheap”, “I know you can see yourself in this home in the future but it’s way too far out of the city for you right now” and my personal favourite, “Amanda, dry your eyes and leave this to me. I’ll take care of it.” I would highly recommend Mark to anyone looking for a genuine, honest, hardworking realtor.

We had the pleasure of working with Mark on the purchase of our dream property. Mark went above and beyond on a consistent basis during the entire process. Not only is Mark professional, he was very responsive and took our time into consideration. Mark answered emails and text message promptly and met with us after business hours. Most importantly, Mark was able to understand and read our family needs accurately. We were extremely impressed by Mark’s expertise in the market and strategic negotiation skills. We can't say enough wonderful things about Mark. We highly recommend Mark to anyone looking for quality realtor.

The service and personal attention we received from Mark was exceptional in both buying and selling our home. He is truly a high-caliber professional and his knowledge of the local market and negotiating skills were key in ensuring that we received the best offer for our home. In addition, when purchasing our new home, he quickly arranged times to visit homes we were interested in and offered a lot of useful information that made the buying experience easy, enjoyable and comfortable. Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, we would highly recommend Mark.

Mark was recommended to me when I was looking to buy a home and I also obtained his services recently to sell a property. In both of these transactions, he was very professional, really listened to my wants and needs and tirelessly worked with me on obtaining my goals. He is the only Realtor I would use and highly recommend him to help with your real estate needs.

I never thought that buying my first place could have gone as smooth as it did! Mark made this happen and he walked me through every step. I went and looked at the place I ended up buying and I really like it. I left the next day for work out of town and I called Mark and explained to him my situation. I was a little skeptical of putting in offers and buying a place over the phone and through email but Mark reassured me that everything would be fine. He was right! We did all of the paperwork through email and docusign and everything went flawlessly! I would definatly reccomend Mark to anyone looking to buy or sell a place as he was always there for me to answer my questions and guide me along the way! Thanks again, Brandon

Mark was recommended to us a by a good friend and I'm so glad for the recommendation. As first time buyers we were rather clueless as to how the home buying process worked and Mark was always there to answer our questions, no matter how silly they might have been. Mark responded to our inquiries nearly instantly, and we always felt that he had our best interests in mind. We also really appreciated that he was straightforward but never pushy, and how friendly and personable he is. We were able to move quickly with our purchase, and with Mark's help we bought a home that we're very happy with and for a price that was also good. Mark continued to work for us after our offer had been accepted, setting us up with a mortgage broker and legal representation. He even responded to emails while on vacation! When we had a problem with a faulty appliance after moving in, Mark took it upon himself to make sure we had some reimbursement for that appliance. All in all, we couldn't be happier with our experience with Mark and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a realtor.

Mark provided expert advice and was a dedicated partner in our search to find our new home. We considered multiple communities and Mark provided information that helped us determine each communities fit for us and cost benefit. Mark's s use of notifications and IT systems was the little extra that made the difference in finding our home and being ahead of the market. Oh, and our kids loved Mark too.

We thoroughly enjoyed working with Mark to find our new condo. He was very professional and intuitive as well as friendly and accommodating. With his help we were quickly able to refine the search and find the perfect place. Mark handled all the paperwork and legal contacts making our home buying experience very streamlined and efficient. It was a pleasure to work with Mark and I look forward to working with him again soon.

After browsing for houses a few months, I happened to drive by Mark's open house which I decided to take a look at. Unexpectedly I liked the home, and started talking to Mark about potentially submitting an offer. Not having a realtor of my own made me feel uneasy with such a big decision, but after talking to Mark it alleviated any fears I had. He is very personable and very quickly I felt comfortable talking and dealing with him. He was able to answer all my questions about the home, the process when purchasing and a time frame for potential possession. Even though he was representing the seller I felt he was very fair when negotiating and was honestly working to satisfy both parties. The closing process was quick, and painless and from there he explained what I needed to complete with the lawyers, banks, insurance company, Home inspection, utility company etc. to finalize the purchase. Whenever I had questions (which I had tons of because this was my first house purchase) Mark was always available via phone, and email, responding right away to help me out when I needed. I am very happy I came across Mark that day because I got the home I wanted at a fair price and the transaction was so smooth and painless I couldn't believe it. I recommend Mark to anyone looking for a home and will definitely use his services in the future! Thanks again Mark, and all the best!

When my husband and I decided to sell our house we had a new place in mind, which came on the market a lot sooner than anticipated. Mark was quick to list our home for us and was always available to both potential buyers and ourselves. He was very understanding and flexible with our schedules as we had a 4 month old baby which didn’t make things easier. He was able to calm us when we faced the very stressful period of potentially owning two homes and ensured us that a price drop on our house was not necessary for a quick sale. He was right! After only a couple of weeks on the market and 1 ½ open houses we had the perfect offer, papers were signed immediately and the process could not have gone smoother. Mark made the purchasing of our home through a builder stress free (as we had had a bad experience dealing with a builder ourselves previously) and we could not be happier with our realtor experience! We would recommend Mark to anyone looking to buy/sell their home in the future! - Jen, Paul & Owen

Mark helped me and my family find the perfect home over a short period of time. He was very flexible and patient, and made himself available at all times when it came to viewing houses and changing house or location details. Mark was very professional when it came to house viewings, giving us space and time to look through many houses. He was very knowledgeable and helpful when questions arose about houses, location, and buying know-how. He always kept in mind our wants and needs, and always brought up suggestions or reminders during our viewings that we would have missed or forgotten. My experience with Mark as my realtor was very smooth, since he was always on top of things, and he undoubtedly decreased the stress of buying my house. We would definitely use him in the future. Thanks Mark! We love our house, and I'm glad you helped us find it! Sincerely, Daniel Perez

When I first met with Mark about buying a home, I had really no idea what I wanted nor any idea of the time-line for buying. I wasn't in a hurry. I just wanted to have a look around. We discussed some criteria and he sent me a list of initial options. All of a sudden in a flurry of energy we had seen several places, narrowed in on what I wanted, and put an offer on the perfect one within a week of starting! Mark was fantastic. He matched the pace of my response and then some. He made things happen really quickly, on a very flexible schedule, and responded promptly and patiently to all communications. Clearly a veteran at working with uncertain clients, he helped me realize and solidify what I wanted and we cherry-picked the perfect fit. Done and done! He came through in every way, beyond expectations, and all with a casual sense of humour that made him a joy to work with and made my first-time home-buying experience completely painless. I would (and have) enthusiastically recommend Mark to everyone! Cody Stewart

Working with you, Mark, was a completely positive experience. I know we told you what we had in mind, and eventually we purchased quite the opposite product, but you didn't rib us too hard about that. Your service was always fun, and even when we asked you to show houses within tight timelines, you always managed to make it happen and be professional. It is nice to find someone who will guide you through the whole real estate experience and make it an enjoyable reality. We had a tight timeline but you still managed to keep your sense of humour! Thank you very much for your time and we would not hesitate to use your services again, and to recommend you to our friends and family. John and Deborah Chad

My wife and I have known Mark for several years, and when we decided to pursue the purchase of a new home, we asked Mark to represent us. We were very pleased with the level of service Mark gave us. He was always available to be reached, responded to e-mails promptly and offered a flexible schedule. Mark’s ability to negotiate on our behalf helped put us in the new home we’re so happy to own today. In addition, we followed up by having Mark represent us in the sale of our previous home, which resulted in the sale in under 2 days, and for 99% of the list price; a significant weight off any new homebuyers shoulders having your home sold so quickly, for exactly the price you wanted. We would recommend Mark (and since have) to anybody looking to enter the market, as a buyer, or as a seller. - Melissa & Kevin Frankiw

Selling our property with Mark Lukwinski was a very enjoyable and stress free experience. We were very happy with the way Mark portrayed our property when selling it and we appreciated his perfectionism in the matter. The information we were provided regarding comparable properties that were on sale or had recently been sold helped us a great deal to decide on a fair price to sell at. Mark also had no intention of ‘low-balling’ our price in the hopes of getting a quick sale. He knew that we wanted to use the proceeds of this sale as a down payment on a home, and so he worked with us to make sure that we were able to get as much as we could for our property, which given the market at the time, was no small feat. Any time I hear of somebody who is looking for a realtor, I am sure to pass along Marks name. Michael P.

Thank you so much for making my first home purchase such a great experience. I found your services to be reliable, professional, and you were also a friendly and personable guy. Your input in the several homes we saw was so valuable as I learned so many new things about the market. I appreciated the fact that you were able to help me and show some homes with such short notice. As a first time home buyer, you made it easy for me to be confident with my decision. Should I need a Realtor in the future, you will be at the top of my list, and I will not at all hesitate to refer you. Bahaa Beshry

We used Mark to sell our home after we had to move overseas, so from start to finish everything was done online or on the phone. We were pleased with his service, his energy, and commitment to our listing. Mark worked to get us a great price and kept us informed with news and events. Our house sold quickly which made us quite happy and allowed us to settle into our new home overseas much easier. We would definitely recommend Mark to anyone who needs a realtor and without hesitation we would use him again in the future.' Marzena and Dave Feuchtwanger

Working with Mark was a refreshing experience compared to other associations with Realtors. He is Polite, Prompt, and Professional, and was an expert in everything he undertook during his handling of the sale of our property. Even though we were in another country when the offer was received, he was able to carry off the sale in a painless manner. When it came to all the other details, Mark had anticipated everything and the transaction was one of the smoothest we have ever experienced. We were most impressed. Bernice and Richard Walthall

When two friends and myself decided to purchase a rental property, we quickly realized that our extremely busy, individual schedules were going to be the crux of any acquisition. Mark proved to be the perfect realtor for our unique situation. He had no reservation about altering his schedule; no matter how short notice or inconvenient it was, to fit our itineraries. He was always punctual, professional, forthright and extremely honest. I have no reservations in recommending him, to anyone who is looking for a realtor. Sincerely, Dr. Udell Larsen

Mark has acted on behalf of myself and my partners on two occasions thus far, acting as real estate buying and selling agents. During each transaction, the financial outcome was better than what I believed was possible. Mark is extremely approachable, intelligent and truthful people. They have an expertise in their field which gives their clients an edge over that of other clients. They provide value-added service by always being prepared, always being available and always willing to go the extra mile to research or investigate pertinent issues. I will be a repeat client of Mark and I recommend them to any one who is looking for an honest and hard working realtor. Dr. Chirag Patel
