Testimonials

Ed has handled multiple transactions for me. Always great to deal with -- responsive, knowledgeable and on the ball. Just really there when you need him. Highly recommend! Michael Yablonsky
I met with Otis to inquire about a townhome in West Orange and ever since then we have been very satisfied with his services. We are a newly wed couple who wanted to purchase our first home. He is an exceptionally trustworthy and knowledgeable real estate agent, the best that I have worked with. He always has our best interest at heart and works very hard to do everything he can to satisfy us. He was also extremely flexible that I remember calling him to discuss issues way beyond office hours and he never made us feel that we were imposing or that we were annoying. he was always accommodating our questions. This was our first home purchase in the US and Otis gave us a very nice experience. He showed me different options around the city that we were looking to move to. Otis never seemed in a hurry to close any deal, and even calms us down when other vendors (mortgage companies etc) are trying to rush us into closing. He always points both positives and negatives of the home options so we can deliberate whether it is a good choice for us. He always provided valuable insights in terms of what to consider for our particular budget and other constraints. Otis is highly knowledgeable in terms of costs of repairs and renovations which can come in very handy if you are planning to buy a fixer upper or in general want to save money on home purchase. We never felt shocked on pricing as he stuck to our budget and even went out of his way to work with us on finding vedors for making our home move-in ready. We have several improvements, repairs and modifications that we wanted and Otis was more than happy to help us and always got us the best prices. He is the complete one stop shop. If you need someone who has a lot of experience in the market, Otis is the guy, plus we always enjoy chatting with him as he is always fun around. Now we are very happy in our new home, it is newly painted inside and even Otis chose the colors for us and turned out even more beautiful than expected. Jorawar Singh
Mark was very professional selling our home. He was always available if needed and was more of a friend than a realtor. He is a great guy. He worked to get us the price we wanted and was very honest about what we needed to do to sell our home. I would highly recommend his team if your selling your home. They do it in less than a month! rednails182003
I liked working with Mark Slade. In the beginning, he wasn't always as proactive in communicating as I would have liked but as the transaction moved forward, communications improved. sternimoto
What an amazing realtor. She went above and beyond on both the sale of our old house and the purchase of our new one. She was always positive and calm about any hiccup that we came across. I’ve been recommending her to all our friends! ncb311
When we started looking for a home, we scheduled showings with the listing agent and never really liked anyone that we wanted to work with until we met Mark. He quickly felt like a friend; always helpful and talking through ideas and really understood our home buying goals. He's extremely professional and thoughtful. Would certainly recommend and work with him again. mandyrob777
I was a realtor for a few minutes, and during my time in that dog-eat-dog world there was one person I met who transcended the skullduggery. That was Mark Slade, who I liked immediately. When it came time to sell my home, he was the first person I though of, and he did not disappoint. Mark had to navigate some difficult circumstances in pursuing the successful sale, and he did so with sensitivity and common-sense. I wholeheartedly recommend Mark as a realtor and as a human. Look, everyone has a job and a purpose. Find the ones such as Mark who truly care about the outcomes and you'll be quite happy gshippy3
Lorie-Ann was very patient with me since the townhouses/condos that were shown to me were not what I was really looking for. At one time I said to her "I hope that I am not being a pain and that I am not too picky" to which she replied, "It's your decision and you are the one who will be living in your house so I will search until I find something that suites your taste" When I did find a house of my choice, Lorie has been very responsive and would check-in ever so often with me to see if there was anything that I needed. It was the first time/experience in purchasing a property and Lorie provided me with pearls of wisdom all the way with respect to things of which I should be aware. Lorie has a lot of patience and was very flexible when working with my schedule. I would ask her again to assist me if I was going to purchase another house. L acoombs88
The associate we worked with, Denise, was fantastic. She was very flexible with us while we had to bring our kids with us to look at properties. Also, coming from a state away, she was patient with us as we were sometimes a little late. She was honest and showed us things without our guidelines. She fought for us and continued to go above and beyond during negotiations. I highly recommend her to anyone looking in the area. oliviagaillard
Cory was very well informed about the locality and showed some really good houses that fit my criteria. He was also very sincere in following up on queries .With his help I was able to close on a house in west orange .During thr closing process he helped me tremendously in navigating through the various parties involved. Post the closing he is also helping me out with contacts who will help me with maintaining my place zuser20170820064646518
Ed is a great professional, he knows the area and is on top of the comps. He is flexible and patient - staying with me to get the job done. Thanks for everything Ed! user530466
Ed helped my husband and I find our very first home in 2016. We lived in Brooklyn at the time and Ed made the time and worked around our busy schedule to do showings. He was excellent in negotiating the pricing and helped us find the right house in the right neighborhood for the right price. Ed is very professional and knowledgeable in the Realestate world. We won't recommend anyone else but Ed! kejones123
d is a pleasant person to work with. He is very knowledgeable, looked out for details in properties we would oversee. We developed into a great friendship. It is nice to find someone that is truly passionate with his job and looks out for his clients. wmaldonado15
Ed was a pleasure to work with. He was always available day and night for questions and to go house hunting. He always went the extra mile to ensure I was getting the best deal possible and helped me out when I was going through a family crisis. Ed is someone you can rely on solely and trust to be your all around realtor who will have your best interest always. He gave me piece of mind during a very challenging real estate transaction. Highly recommend him to find you your new home or for any investment opportunities. ilanahorowitz
Mark gets it. Buyers search social media now not an office. His visuals are superb and website portfolio of the house were amazing. Marketing of a Victorian is challenging and he was able to do it. He gave his word he would have open houses every weekend until an offer. He fulfilled his promises. Grateful for his marketing savvy! todd rivkees
As excited first time home buyers, we quickly fell in love with a house we saw on Zillow, and immediately had to contact a realtor. As luck would have it, that person was Cory Marks. We scheduled a meeting with Cory and a viewing of our “perfect” house. It was at that viewing we then realized how much we needed the guidance from a local expert (needless to say the photos didn’t match what we needed or wanted in our first home). From there, Cory quickly taught us the ins and outs of the area we were looking - which lead to many home showings, lots of learning, but most importantly a path to our true dream home. Cory made the process stress free and had a very easy going attitude throughout the 20+ homes we looked at (my husband and I had a different style of dream home which lead to many showings). Cory communicated week by week and scheduled showings with us almost every weekend. There was never once a time we felt pressured to make any decision we weren’t comfortable with, as Cory’s main priority was to ensure we were in a home we loved, made sense for our goals, and most importantly, was on budget. Being in the south orange area you quickly learn how busy the market is, and Cory was super knowledgeable about the process from start to finish. Every single recommendation he made even after our bid was accepted were all people at his caliber, and made the process even more enjoyable. Needless to say, Cory will be our first recommendation to anyone looking in the area, and will be the first person we call should we need him In the future. We are beyond excited for our new home, and are so thankful we had the help and guidance from Cory throughout the process. kirsten a russell
We purchased our first home with Mark. He is very honest about the homes we were looking at and pointed out the good and bad with each home. Having him there when we found our home, gave us the confidence to put down an offer! He was very knowledgeable about the town and was available to answer our questions any time of day. As a first time home buyer, you could imagine how many questions we had. He has great relationships with his colleges and was able to provide several recommendations, such as home inspector, lawyer, contractor and mortgage agent. We would highly recommend Mark. j ohmotley
Mark Slade represented me in the listing and sale of a property with the utmost attention to detail & professionalism! He is a true expert and highly recommended! rspencer26
Every question I had was answered by Mark with confidence. No matter the time of day, or not if things came up we were able to get them figured out. There were no surprises after moving into our home. Mark is a man of his word. user38457947
Mark is very professional and extremely knowledgeable and experienced. I highly recommend him. He helped us to sell our house quickly, and also find our dream home! jackie rogerio
We had the pleasure of working with Mark to buy our first house and then sell it 2.5 years later due to a corporate move. On both ends of the process, Mark was patient, transparent and a helpful guide. I strongly reccomend using him as he is also an area expert. zuser20150318084954247
Team Slade (Mark and MaryCeu) were with us every step of the way. They gave us pertinent recommendations on how to present our property and were always responsive to our inquiries and concerns. Once our home went ‘live’ we sold it in 3 weeks and got more money than we asked for. Would I recommend this team of awesomeness? Oh yea! masteraines
Cory was outstanding. He consistently went above and beyond in helping in every way. Here's just one quick example... we were away, and when Cory was showing the house he noticed a smell in the basement. Turned out the freezer died, along with everything in it. Cory immediately started making phone calls to research the best way to either dispose of the freezer or clean it out professionally. In the end, he spent his entire Friday night waiting for and staying with the professionals while they cleaned out the mess. His positive attitude and authentic desire to help wherever he could made the process of selling the house much less stressful...dare I say, even pleasant. Call Cory...you will be happy you did. claire5439
Cory Marks was my agent to buy a house 5 years ago and again when I sold the same house last month. I have bought and sold other houses with other agents in the past but no one was as good as Cory. He genuinely cares about his clients. He is proactive about possible glitches and issues so they don’t become problems. He keeps you informed and on schedule. He knows a wide range of tradesmen, handymen and other service providers to refer to. But, really, it all comes back to him being a person who truly cares and takes pride in giving his clients great service. zuser20170904194602697
MaryCeu was absolutely crucial in getting us the best house for our needs and within our budget. She worked relentlessly with us for months throughout the entire process. Her negotiation skills are incredible and made the whole difference when the final opportunity came up. MaryCeu was extremely professional while maintaining a very close and highly personal treatment at all times. She has a deep knowledge on pretty much all towns in this area. We cannot thank her enough for her assistance and patience at explaining every step of the process. I would highly recommend MaryCeu for all your real estate needs. felipe587
Mark was a pleasure to work with. He was professional, friendly and patient. He possesses all of the qualities you would want in a realtor, knowledge, experience, courtesy and attention to detail. zuser20160413200106343
Susan was great to work with! Very low pressure and patient. She is also quite savvy as we gave her a list of houses to take us to, but she added a few herself she thought we'd like based on our preferences/taste. We ended up putting in an offer & getting it accepted on one of her recommendations! Steven Cheah
Mark was super accommodating and helpful to me - a first time seller, who wasn’t living in the immediate area through the sale process. Mark and his team were always friendly and assisted me with things I couldn’t easily get back for. And their use of electronic facilitated my approval and signing the necessary paperwork even while I was in West Africa for work! I very much appreciated their responsiveness, patience when I had questions about the process, and professionalism greatly. Not only would I recommend Mark, but if I am ever looking in the area again, Mark will be my first call!! AvidSkier
Cory made our house hunt go by with total ease. He listened to what we wanted in a house, worked with us and ultimately showed us multiple houses. All of them would have been great for us! We are thrilled with the house we bought and Cory was there at all steps to make it go smoothly. We could not have asked for better help and guidance. jones paul ian
Raquel patiently led us through the first time home buyers process with ease, we felt incredibly comfortable with her and she quickly caught on to the vibe and feel of a home we were interested So time was not wasted on houses not for us. Super responsive and fast to jump on a great buys, we found a perfect home and she negotiated a great deal for us in an incredibly competitive market at the time. We are forever grateful!! milla3
When my landlord had decided to sell her property, my wife and I thought it was the perfect timing to buy a house. Like any other first time home buyers we did not really conduct a lot of research to see who would be the best choice as realtor agent. We have met quite a few Realtor agents, some were cocky, pushy and some were nice but Raquel stood out as the best of them. At our first meeting she made our feel like that her job was more service than sales. Throughout the process she had always answered every call or email no matter what time of day or night it was. We never felt forced to make an offer .She's a true professional and a genuinely nice person. I dislike writing reviews but I think this review is well deserved, It’s my way to Thank her for helping me and my family to find a great home!!! charles bellevue
Mark has handled several properties with me on both the buying side and the selling side. He genuinely makes an effort to look out for my interests. He has good practical sense about improving space and increasing value. He understands his buyers well and responds to subtle shifts in market timing. He does not make unrealistic promises and has always delivered with swift results when it counts the most. He is also a charming person to have around the local industry with an exceptional and loyal team. jer shires
I needed specific items on the home I wished to rent due to the disability of a parent. Ms Vaz was careful to send me homes that met the criteria I desired. And ultimately found the home we ended up renting. She was great (she even helped us organize and pack!) rhonda mcclain
We met Mark Slade thru our real estate agent MaryCeu Nunes. Mark and Mary advised us the best way to prepare our home for sale (which we did), responded immediately to questions we had, followed up regularly, provided encouragement and advice as needed, held 2 brokers' Open Houses, followed by a 2 weekend day public open house and, as a result, we had several full price offers and 2 offers considerably over asking price...all in less than a month from listing to offer. Mary and Mark are an excellent team and we highly recommend them! jvalickas
Our experience with Mark was amazing! He knows everything about the area where we purchased (South Orange/Maplewood), helps first time home-buyers understand important but non-obvious considerations, and is a tireless professional. We worked on-and-off with Mark for almost a year, and ultimately found the perfect house. Mark was invaluable during the purchase process, with recommendations and personal connections with any home buying or maintenance services imaginable. Even after the sale he organized a deep cleaning of the house, and I know I can depend on him for future advise or referrals. Highly recommended! cjpwhite
My husband and I were delighted to work with Cory Marks to find and purchase our first home in West Orange! Cory was incredibly knowledgable of the area, extremely responsive and patient, and just an all around great guy- exactly the kind of person we hoped to find to help guide us through the home buying process. I wholeheartedly recommend Cory Marks to anyone looking for a smart, friendly, trustworthy realtor. We look forward to working with him again in the future! zuser20140929091824093
Mark Slade and Mary Ceu Nunes exceeded all of my expectations. Their tenacity and professionalism got us a quick sale for well above asking price. And when things got rocky Mark and Mary always protected out best interest. They would rather have had to re-list our house than watch us concede to unreasonable demands. I highly recommend the team of Mark Slade and Mary Ceu Nunes. dpmccole177
Mark was our agent in both a purchase and sale transaction this spring/summer. He was extremely courteous, professional, and very accessible via text or phone. He logged late hours to ensure our transactions were successful. His guidance on the sale of our home proved to be spot on, as we sold quickly and above ask. His recommendations of contractors and vendors to help with the buy and sale was invaluable. Buying and selling a home can be very stressful, so it's important to have someone like Mark on your side as he can leverage his experience to help make the process go as smoothly as possible. Thanks to Mark for making something we thought was not achievable a reality! brendan p cavanaugh
Mark help us to find our new home in Montclair where the market is crazy. As an agent and a buyer you have to react fast. He always found time to show me in person the houses. He was very patient and always with a smile. He knows what he is doing. He loves his job. I really miss his company!! viofigueroa
It is truly a pleasure to write this review for Mark Slade. My wife and I reached out to Mark for a home assessment and from the first day he walked into our home he demonstrated true professionalism and market knowledge. His market analysis of our home was very detailed and right on target. Mark was also very responsive and added value in both our home sale and purchase of a new home. I think what's most important to note is that he was engaged every step of the way by helping us ask the right questions and helping us think through our decision process without making us feel pressured. Mark is an excellent Realtor and I would highly recommend him to any family member or friend looking to buy or sell a home. zuser20160426091943827
MaryCeu made the entire selling process very easy and as stress-free as possible. Overall, she went above and beyond to identify key details towards prepare the house to be sold. She had thorough knowledge of the local market and inventory, which helped provide valuable feedback from potential buyers. user93010705
I'm not one to write reviews. But there was no way I can move into my new home and not pay respect to the person that made it possible and less complicated. My husband and I are first time homebuyers and were ABSOLUTELY clueless as to what we were about to get ourselves into and the stress that comes along with the home buying process. We met Cory while inquiring about a home on zillow. And let me tell you, there aren't enough words in the dictionary to explain how grateful we are to have met him. He was more than just our realtor. We had some communication issues with our lawyer, mortgage originator, and pretty much everyone that was involved in our home purchasing. Cory stepped up in every situation and did more than his job description to make the process as smooth as it can be. He was also understanding and patient with us. We weren't the typical clients and had A LOT going on in our personal lives at the moment. We're first time parents with a 3 month old who had some major complications. So it felt great to have someone in our corner that was there for our best interest. He explained everything to us and didn't rush or pressure us into making a decision on any of the (20-25 maybe more) homes he took us to see. He's a stand up/do the right thing type of person and in his field of work, that's hard to find. Even after our closing, he's still offering his help and time to us. I have to say we are very lucky folks. Overall, he's just AWESOME! user57687736
Mark provided knowledgeable, highly professional and very friendly service throughout our relationship. We worked with him to sell 2 homes and buy one. He was always available to us and on top of all issues in all 3 of these transactions. His advice on many issues made the entire process smooth and easy. I would highly recommend Mark for any real estate needs. tannebysusan
We are so happy that Mark was our realtor for both the sale of our condo and our home purchase. We are truly impressed with the way Mark works. The best part about the whole process, was that Mark listened to our concerns and treated them as if they were his own. Not only is Mark a great realtor, he also becomes a friend during it all. Mark would lend out a hand 5 years down the line if you called. We are very happy and we continue to pass on the "Slade Team" name to anyone who is going through a real-estate transaction. jillymargs
My husband and I were both very nervous about the home-buying process since this is our first time, but Veronica made everything SO EASY. She answered all five million questions I asked her and was always so responsive. I would recommend her in a heartbeat! zuser20150414162732270
Initially I was skeptical of the agent referral process through Zillow, since I was under the impression that I was simply contacting the “seller’s agent” for a showing and was surprised to learn that I was in fact, selecting an agent. It felt a little like “bait & switch”. However, I’m forever grateful that Zillow brought Cory & and my family together because he simply made the process of buying a home (my first) soooo much easier! Cory, in one word, was awesome! From explaining complex real estate jargon and home inspection issues/concerns in laymen’s terms, to overseeing and ensuring that the seller completed the agreed upon work, to serving as a go-between for myself and contractors (since I was relocating) and even at times serving as a de facto “general contractor” and “point person” for some of the work being performed, to helping with the transition from NY to NJ by providing a multitude of transportation alternatives involving NJ Transit Rail, to the PATH, to the local Jitney, and one of his biggest assists was stopping by and placing packages that were delivered [we were expecting a baby during our home search and prematurely changed the registry address shortly after closing] in the garage for safe keeping. These are just some of the services/actions that Cory provided; the list is endless! Overall, I am truly indebted to Cory for his help through the home buying process. Buying a home is daunting enough, but try taking it on while juggling the birth of your first child and completing grad school. Without Cory there by my side, I’m not sure things would have gone as smoothly. And, if Cory and I didn’t meet, I’m not sure I would be in this lovely home and I certainly don’t believe I would have gotten this level of care and service from just anyone! Cory will remain someone I’ll look to for real estate and local/regional advice for years to come and look forward to working with him again in the future! Doobious
Mark is far and away the best realtor I have had contact with in the sale of several homes in our family. Because of his extensive experience, he has great wisdom as you go through the various stages of selling your home. Of course, he waits for you to ask for his advice, and he's never pushy --"I would say don't take this particular offer, because...... but this is a good one, because.... and here's a comment about price if you decide to do this, I would recommend......." (many realtors don't have a clue about the real estate process and wait for the house to "sell itself" -- good luck). And as many reviewers have commented, Mark is extremely responsive as well, calling you back quickly and also using texts to communicate. He is completely honest, professional, dependable and personable. He personally handles many details that others would have their assistants do, but he also has a superb team to handle details of the closings, etcs. The closing of my house is later this week, and from start to finish, Mark has been right there at every turn. Mark is to realtors as Walter Cronkite is to news reporters and Michael Phelps is to swimming, absolutely the best of the best. 5/5, 10/10, 100%. It’s been such a pleasure to work with him. Thank you Mark!!! MarkTerenzi
Mark was our agent for three years, both for purchasing our new home and for selling our current one. He is very responsive, always returns, calls, emails, texts, and always with in a short period of time. He never looses patience and will continue to work with you until your objective is reached. nandasobieski
Mark is reliable, very knowledgeable about the market and most importantly honest. We always felt like he had our best interest at heart and would follow through on everything we asked of him. Thanks to Mark, we are in a home we love! sigmercedes
Cory was a pleasure to work with. He was professional, friendly and patient. He was knowledgeable about the area in which we were looking, and a good listener regarding our needs, likes, and dislikes. He has a good sense of humor as well! I would highly recommend working with him. zuser20170413063648285
Mark had to deal with unpleasant tenants who were living in our home during showings. He was able to make them feel comfortable about showing the property whilst they were still living there. His ability to work with their demanding personalities, was so important to getting the sale closed. We highly recommend Mark Slade for his knowledge of the area as well as his integrity as a broker. Lomush
I am big on responsiveness, and this is one of Mark's strong points. He is knowledgeable about the area, listens to his client's wishes, and is a real professionalZ mail3673
Mark made our home buying experience which has been onerous in the past a great experience. His suggestions and support were instrumental in helping us to make our decision. Buying a house is stressful and you never know it you have made the right decision. In our case, thanks to Mark, we feel this was our dream house. We cannot overemphasize how amazing he was. If you are looking for a realtor, you need to look no further than Mark Slade. coachruby
Mark took the time to really appreciate and understand our needs. Every situation is unique and finding the right home for every personal circumstance is his specialty. Mark is the consummate professional . dimidigz27
Moving to the New Jersey suburbs from NYC can be a daunting and overwhelming experience. There are so many things to think about when purchasing a home including the quality of the schools, the commute to NYC, neighborhood, type of home, resale value, etc. Early on in our search we met Cory Marks and am happy to say we did. With my wife and young daughter in tow, we toured multiple towns and made many offers on homes that we ended up not getting. The process was exhausting and through it all Cory was there every step of the way to guide us and to provide counsel. We finally ended up in the house we love in Short Hills raising our two young children. Cory is a professional who you can trust and without a doubt I would highly recommend him for your next home purchase. Larry J
We were very pleased with how Cory managed our house sale. We're still shocked by how quickly it sold (12 days!) given the tight market in West Orange, and how seamless the whole process was for us. Cory's web marketing definitely helped draw all those potential buyers in and his advice on the listing price was spot on, helping us get a great but realistic price and sell quickly. alexsaric
Cory Marks possesses all of the qualities you would want in a realtor: knowledge, experience, courtesy and attention to detail. But the quality that I admire most about Cory is his tenacity. My wife and I often joke with Cory that our home search had to be one of the most challenging situations he's ever faced — or ever will face in his professional career. I know I wouldn't want us as a client! Our desire to find a unique style in our area (a mid-century modern home with walls of windows, room for our two young boys to run around and play, and, oh yeah, a separate living space for my parents) fueled a six-month odyssey that would challenge the resolve of any realtor. Cory not only stuck by us, he remained personally committed throughout to answer every question, field every call, indulge any viewing, counsel us over any offer and sooth us through every disappointment until we found the house of our dreams. Cory Marks is a skilled realtor and a genuinely thoughtful and decent man. But the greatest recommendation I can offer is that he's in it to win it. He won't give up until he's finished the job. That's the kind of person you want on your side. — Bob and Liz Der West Orange, New Jersey
Denise was kind and patient. Also very informative great for me since I was a first time renter she took great care of us and I always reccomend her to anyone looking for a new home. Ayana Anderson
Working with Veronica is the best - she does all the leg work and goes the extra mile. Shopping for a rental is a daunting task in itself, but Veronica goes above and beyond to find the best listings for our family's needs! Amanda Christian
I met Cory in 2005 when I was considering a move from the city to South Orange. He was an expert on the area, and was able to find me the perfect house to suit my needs. He negotiated a great deal, and even helped me get acclimated to the area once I took possession. A couple of years later I hired him again to help me sell. He gave fantastic advice about proper staging, and held my hand through a hellish problem closing. He's a great guy, and has become a good friend. I can recommend him without reservation for either buying or selling. h235840
We had a wonderful experience working with Susan. Susan is great at her job and a lovely person. She is very knowledgeable about the Maplewood/South Orange area--types of houses, market. Susan also really listened to us and understood our needs and our budget, offering valuable advice and support throughout the process of finding and buying our new home. She really went to bat for us when we found ourselves in a bidding war, and helped to make our move to the suburbs not so daunting. We consider Susan a friend and we would highly recommend her. bagna
Looking into buying my first home I must say I was very scared. I met Raquel through a mutual friend. From the first time I met her she was very kind, warm hearted person who cared about my needs and wants. She's very professional and well organized. I would recommend her services to everyone. user01791291
Cory helped us land our dream house in South Orange. We came from NY knowing nothing about the area. With his help we discovered South Orange and made an offer on our house in a day. He skillfully managed the negotiations, putting the deal back together every time it fell apart. After the closing he continued to check in, offering valuable advice and making referrals to contractors, insurance brokers, and other vendors we ended up hiring -- this made a huge difference in transitioning in! Cory is an agent you can trust and rely on and we've been referring friends to him since we met. vadim pevzner
Susan Georget put our family first and clearly understood how important it was for us to purchase a house that we could call home. Personable, thorough, and incredibly professional she was incredibly patient and an incredible active listener. She also has practically immediate response time which is impressive considering she is so on demand! Additionally her recommendations helped us to know she was truly listening to us and sincerely wanted to find us something we would all love. She worked with us for months and her tenacity surely matched or even exceeded ours in order to gracefully manage sometimes challenging sellers. Most importantly Susan is a joy to work with. We loved spending time with her and we had a fun adventure going from house to house. We have found our treasure now and continue to enjoy our home. Thank you Susan!!! marycoshstudio
In every way Mark and his entire team were dedicated, thoughtfull, insightful, creative, supportive, understanding, diligent, forth right, honest, direct, and resposive. I cound not have asked for a better partner or team for the sale of my house. I felt at all times that himself and his team were a professional enterprise of the highest quality that would help me sell my home in a manner that was best for all parties involved. It was a true pleasure working with him and his team. I give them my highest recomendation. You will feel at all times like you have the best team working for you, and the best agent working on your behalf. Carl Quillen
Kimberley was an incredible realtor to work with. We needed to find something we loved within a short period of time and she took the time and care to find the house of our dreams and help us secure its purchase. Not only is she a great businesswoman but also a wonderful person who has stayed in touch with us since we moved in. We highly recommend her! zuser20160321080058665
We had a great experience with Mark Slade. Very knowledgeable about the South Orange/Maplewood area and the home buying/selling process. I would highly recommend Mark! fmckeon
I cant say enough great things about Mark. He is a true professional and helped to guide us through our first home own buying experience. He is well connected in the area and never placed pressure on us to do something we didn't want to do. He is fantastic to work with and I highly suggest connecting with him! zuser20150318084954247
My wife found Mark in an article about Maplewood. We figured we would meet with him and see if he would be the right realtor for us. He definitely was and would be for anyone who is looking for a realtor who will go above and beyond the call of duty to make sure you are happy with the process and with your home. Mark helped us deal with a very difficult seller by staying on top of things as if he were the actual buyer. He was extraordinarily responsive to our questions and requests. He made us comfortable with he process, really listened to what we seeked in a home and neighborhood. He was a wealth of information about the area. I would highly recommend Mark to anyone seeking a realtor who is on your side and wants you to be happy throughout the experience until the moment you have the keys to your new home in your hands. Brian Ormsbee
Mark was incredibly helpful as our realtor when we sold our house. Very knowledgeable, thoughtful, available and attentive. He was always able to answer our questions, and offered lots of great advice. Highly recommend!! user3757590
From the minute we met Susan, we felt that we knew her for ages. She was warm, knowledgeable and very patient with all of our wants and needs in a new home. We wanted the trifecta–close proximity to Manhattan, good schools for our boys and a charming village and neighborhood. We looked all over West Orange, South Orange and Maplewood with Susan and she took us around with ease and confidence. She helped us navigate the competitive bidding wars and always, without fail, remained clear minded and sure that the right home would find us. With a strike of luck in a lost water bottle at one of the open houses, she went out of her way and kindly refilled it up with fresh water. She met us and mentioned we should see one more. It was THE ONE! We closed in July and moved in August and settled in happily before the holidays. We are now the lucky ones to be neighbors with Susan. We recommend her with the highest regard. jessieandmarco
Mark was very helpful throughout our entire process. He always jumped in when we needed him to help the transaction get across the finish line. It often felt like Mark was helping to not just educate ourselves, but the other agent as well. We would recommend Mark to any home buyers looking to purchase in the SOMA area. allisonboxerstone
Veronica has been a wonderful Agent throughout the entire process of looking for a property to submitting offers on properties. She keeps her clients best interest at heart and provides her professional opinion on key matters when needed. Above all else, here communication and responsiveness is second to none and is greatly appreciated. albertmyers2
Veronica is honest and straightforward. I trust her opinion and she is extremely knowledgeable about the current market. Thank you Veronica for all your assistance and sound advice. zuser20160411112301910
I can't speak highly enough of my experience with Veronica Dacunha. I am a first-time homebuyer with very little knowledge about how to find the right place. I met with a couple of realtors before Veronica, but I knew instantly that she was the one for me. She is honest and hands-on. Her dedication to her job as a Realtor, is so infectiously noticeable, you can tell right away, she cares a great deal about her clients She really helped, to take the pressure off. I never felt forced to make an offer. Veronica walked me through every step of what to expect, for upcoming negotiations. I have several friends looking for homes and thinking about selling, and I always recommend Veronica to them! zuser20150405073752254
I really think you all have someone very special working for you. From the very first day of my contact with Miss Veronica Da Cunha, I felt like she was not so consumed in getting paid but to make sure I find the best home possible. She took off her personal time to help me find a new home. Veronica is the best!!! Sincerely yours PE. Thanks for everything Veronica! You are the best Peter Edwards
Mark was great at introducing us to Maplewood and guiding us through a difficult purchase from a difficult owner. He was helpful and informative at every step and still checks in on us. lauren mcmillen
Mark Slade has been great to work with! He was easy to talk with, supportive but respectful of our concerns and not pushy. He responded to any concerns in a timely fashion. Mark is a resident in this community and knows it well. tinaartist
Mark was very knowledgeable and accurate in his assessment of the market and helped us price our home correctly. He was very helpful with the various processes required from listing the property to the closing. beh54us
Mark is an incredible agent. He represented us in purchasing a home in 2015 and in selling that home this Fall (we had to move for work). He was incredibly responsive, knowledgeable, and effective. What we liked most about Mark is that he definitely knows how to figure out what his clients are looking for and provides it. Andrew Pak
Raquel is an amazing realtor!! Professional, excellent communication and negotiation skills. Working with her was the most enjoyable experience! From our first meeting to the signing of my rental contract Raquel was there every step of the way! Her dedicated and insightful presence made all the difference in providing my family and I with a happy new home!! Thank you Raquel! TFelix1
Denise did a wonderful job working with us. My husband and I were first time home buyers and she was very patient with our questions and helpful in her expertise. KatieGoral
Mark helped me through all stages of buying and selling a home, two difficult and challenging transactions. I have tremendous confidence in him, and recommend him unhesitatingly. user8716562
Mark Slade recently helped our family in both buying and selling homes in neighboring locations. On the sale side, he was always very responsive, available, and extremely knowledgeable about the neighborhood, home values, and the right approach to pricing our home and selling it quickly. He held our hands throughout the entire process, from before we listed to closing on both homes, and was always available to share his expert opinion on how to proceed. From a purchasing standpoint, he was always one of the first agents to get access to a new listing, and he was more than willing to show us homes at a moment’s notice. He helped our family through the decision making process of which town to move to, but was always amenable to showing us homes in any of the various towns we were contemplating. Overall, Mark is very knowledgeable and extremely professional, balanced with a personable approach - a pleasure to work with. b c eberhard
I reached out to Mark when my parents were ready to sell their home of 27 years. This was a very big decision for them, but Mark made the entire experience painless. Within a week, my parents had about 5-6 offers and sold the house above asking price. He was always available to answer any questions they had and made them feel comfortable throughout the entire process. He truly is the best in the area! Natalie Gils
Our experience with Mark selling our house could not have been better. In less than a week we had 6 offers over the asking price. He is a pro in every sense of the word. Rodolfo Gils
Could not be happier with Mark's knowledge of the local market on a block by block basis, as well as his knowledge of the full life cycle process of buying a home. I strongly recommend him. daniel basil
I would recommend Mark without hesitation! We had very specific and hard to find requirements and Mark was both tireless and successful in finding us the perfect house. He was a tremendous help in both finding the right house but also in conceiving how to best use the space and with budgetary concerns. zuser20150328121717906
We were first time home buyers attempting to buy a home in a new state. Susan Georget was great in assisting us navigate the buying process. She was patient and kind when the first deal fell through. When we were ready to search again Susan was the first person we called. Everything went smoothly!!! I only wished she had been there during our final walk through. user80198644
Mark helped us through the entire process and if you are looking in maplewood you can't ask for someone with more knowledge of the area. I would recommend him for first time buyers. Thanks again mark. tjbergan11
We chose Mark as our realtor because we felt like he was very involved in the community and knew the town where we wanted to live. From beginning to end, Mark was on top of the task at hand. He made the home buying process very easy going for us yet knew all the ins and outs of the trade. Mariah Harris
I worked with Susan Georget to find and buy my home in NJ and she is an absolute professional and joy to work with. Susan knew exactly what types of homes to show me, what I would like and had all the local intel for me. I loved almost all options presented by Susan and was impressed by her ability to understand my needs as a buyer. Susan never pressured me and answered all my questions (and I had a lot). I have already referred a few friends to Susan and they have had similar experiences. On top of all this, Susan is an incredibly kind, caring person. She truly cares about her work. zuser20150625142124647
Mark Slade and his team simply never miss a beat. Mark was instrumental in partnering with my Wife and I to identify homes within our budget, view many those homes, and eventually secure our first house at a great price. I would highly recommend Mark and his team to anyone because you are guaranteed to be dealing with true professionals with unmatched real estate expertise. PatrickFConti

Mark Slade was of great help to me as a first time home buyer. At first, another buyer had a higher offer then me but it didn't work out. Mark never forgot about my offer and about 2 months later he reached out to me to come see the home. He assisted through the process with his expertise in negotiating a fair price for myself and the seller. He also shared ideas and inspired me to be confident about my purchase. He truly has knowledge and passion in his work. I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. evediaz1018

I must say Denise Morgan of the Mark Slade Homes Team is absoluetly brillant. Denise has helped me in every way possible to becoming a first time home owner. I just could not thank you enough for your super fast response, listening skills and clear understanding of exactly what I've always wanted. Anyone I know in the NJ area looking for a home I would HIGHLY recommend Denise with no hesitation I want to Thank You again Denise. I'm still overwhelmed at what I now have before my eyes! syblue01
Mark Slade is extremely responsive and answered me right away to help our family view homes one Saturday during which we drove from Brooklyn to Maplewood. Although the house we had called about was awesome, we saw several other great options with colleague Denise Morgan and ended up making an offer on one of those homes. Denise was very helpful, extremely knowledgable and very responsive, helping to make our home purchase in Maplewood a wonderful experience. Highly recommend! brunocerous
Mark exceeded our expectations. We had not the usual sale, but as an estate there were three co-owners (all sisters, All in our 70's, one out of state) Mark was patient, held our hands throughout the process in which we had no experience. He took GREAT care of us explaining each step. There where no issues because he stayed very involved and kept one step ahead of the process making sure all things involved, including the home inspection were handled properly. He guides you and navigates the process. He priced the house exactly right. Mark is the best and knows his Trade! zuser20150322100216809
Mark is just wonderful! We just bought our first home last month. The whole home buying experience was exceptional with Mark and its team. He is very professional and also he has been very patient and helpful, and we felt that he really cares about us getting the right home rather than making his sale. I’d highly recommend Mark to be your real estate agent for buying home. lauradenicola
Mark had been exceptional both as our selling and buying agent. He is very knowledgable and always come prepared showing a true professionalism. He really fought for us and I am sure he did the same for his other clients. He put us first rather than himself. If you had an agent before you will notice that he really stands out from the rest. I would choose him again without a doubt. ferly lay
Mark helped me move an "ugly" rental property with the same diligence he would have attended to a South Orange mansion at 5 times the commission. Extremely knowledgeable, responsive, and professional. I cannot recommend Mark highly enough. bergenptassociates
Mark was there with us every step of the way during the home buying process. We ran into a few obstacles with our purchase but thanks to the knowledge and expertise of Mark we were able to get past these issues and have a successful closing. We appreciate the countless hours he put into our transaction to ensure that we had a home and everything that was agreed upon in our contract. Mark truly has a passion for what he does and treated our transaction as if it was his own. nakeichaadams
Mark is wonderful. He was more than helpful in guiding us through the selling process, and we felt like he was our advocate on the purchase side. He took time to answer our questions, and was always prompt and responsive with communication. thetiangas
Mark is personable and easy to work with. He has good insights and is patient and savvy and tuned in to his clients. He was able to help me secure my desired home in a bidding war at a very desirable price. BillHatfield
I would recommend Mark Slade to anyone who is looking to purchase a home in the northern NJ area. He was timely, knowledgeable, and honest. Mark helped us with every aspect of the home search from finding the property through inspection and purchasing. Even now that we have already purchased a property, Mark has gone above and beyond by continuing to help us and make recommendations on service providers. Thank you Mark! user5476268
Working with Mark was a great experience. He took a lot of time to show our family around town, explain the nuances of the different neighborhoods, and gain an understanding of the specific needs and wants of our family. Mark was able to patiently show us many houses over many weekends until we found just the right property and then he made sure we negotiated smartly to not just win the house, but win it for the right price. Once in contract, Mark spent a tremendous amount of time guiding us through the rest of the process - including helping arrange and attend numerous inspections and facilitating negotiations with the sellers. Working with Mark, we always felt like we had a trusted expert on our team who was always available to help us, no matter how small or large the request was. We are now happily settled in our new home, for which we owe Mark a great debt of gratitude. For anyone who is looking to buy or sell in the Maplewood area, I would highly recommend Mark for the job. user7641869
Easy to work with, honest and not at all pushy or aggressive. Provided helpful advice regarding offers and negotiations. Has excellent relationships with other realtors and industry related professionals which helped ease the transaction. Highly recommend. kferguson77
Mark was the best agent we could have asked for. I don't think we would have survived the house buying process without him. He goes above and beyond for his clients. user8657269
Mark was wonderful! He worked closely with us for several months until we found the perfect home. His expertise in the local market and process was extremely helpful for us. We would strongly recommend Mark if you're looking to buy or sell!! zuser20140904053947065
Mark made purchasing a home easy, exciting and as painless a process as one could hope. His passion for the towns he represents is only rivaled by his knowledge of them. If you want a realtor who "gets it" and will work to prove himself worthy of your time/money/life change - go with Slade. amitwehle
Working with Mark was a great experience. He was very knowledgeable, patient, and genuinely cares that you wind up in a house that meets your needs. He worked with us over a long period of time and showed us many, many houses and never pushed us or made us feel that we were going too slow or taking up too much of his time. We are now in a great house located in the neighborhood of our dreams. hjchang272
Mark was fantastic; he was attentive, responsive, knowledgeable, and always willing and able to provide sound and useful advice. We were incredibly happy with our experience with him and would recommend him to anyone in need of a good broker in New Jersey (especially Maplewood and South Orange). Andrew Pak
We have only the highest praise for Mark Slade. Mark is extremely knowledgeable in most every facet of what is a challenging, detailed, sometimes fickle and often emotional process. He was saavy in the numbers, and provided astute, timely counsel every step of the way. Mark brings resources to the table to help you get things done. We also valued Mark's high level of integrity and poise. A smart person with financial acumen and knowledge of building structures and code is all very important -- and he brings this too. But my favorite thing to say is that Mark is a broker psychologist. He took care of us and these transactions all require that extra support at so many points along the way. citislicker2000
Exceeded my expectations. He got me multiple offers by getting tremendous amounts of traffic through my house. His team is professional, competent and very nice. Highly remommended Veronica Peralta
Mark is incredibly knowledgeable about the area and knows how to navigate the real estate market well. He helped us through the less than straight forward sale of our new home. And made the process of selling our previous home as simple and quick as possible. LBuber
Mark was very hands on throughout the entire process. He understood my personal goals and than developed and executed a strategy that achieved those goals. Mark handled any issue with the process with professionalism and fixed the situation. In the end, my condo was sold quickly, at a fair price, and the rest of the processing and closing went smoothly. Overall he did a great job. jon beshel
I approached Mark for selling my property. He gathered my expectations, did market analysis and came up with the appropriate selling price. He put together a marketing strategy and most importantly an exit plan. After few months of sincere and meticulous efforts of selling, he came across a potential tenant who is much interested in renting a property for a decent rent. Mark weighed the options and made his recommendations for renting the property. His interes towards my benefits against his monetary benefit is very rare to see. He is highly methodological, available for me all the time, always kept me informed and above all truly demonstrated the characteristics of "customer first". Thanks Mark. Swamy Senthil
I really liked the fact that Mark made a very stressful process easier for us. Because he was so knowledgeable, he kept us two steps ahead of the process and we closed on the projected closing date. Our home was listed and sold within a couple months! He made sure no one took advantage of us and he even did a follow-up post settlement. I now understand why some say he's #1 in the business. Thanks ever so much Mr. Slade user5323990
Mark is a great realtor and an extremely kind person. He possesses extensive knowledge relating to the Montclair market and most importantly, I always felt that I could trust him to do what was in my best interest. He worked with me from approximately June through October 2014 to find the perfect home for me in Montclair and tirelessly researched and showed me many, many houses (some numerous times). I had a very difficult closing but he stuck by me and did whatever he could to try to make a very bad transaction a bit easier. Mark and I became friends as a result of the time we spent together and I would (and have already) recommended him to friends. cotero0
Excellent and incredibly helpful throughout the process of preparing my house for sale through the actual sale. I would highly recommend Mark Slade. Nikki Feirt Atkins, M.D.
We are very grateful Mark handled the most important transaction of our lives. His tenancious involvement and commitment to resolving a number of issues with the mortgage company and appraiser are what got us to the closing table. He always quickly responded to all our concerns and questions. We highly recommend using Mark as your realtor. Brenda and John
I was selling a property in NJ while living in FL, and Mark was great about keeping me informed at every step. His marketing materials -- especially online video -- were well done and showed off the property to its best advantage. kathleen frankart
Mark is a great agent and knows the bedroom communities of north Jersey like no other. We used him twice to rent homes, a short-term rental in Summit and a longer lease in Millburn, and he worked hard for us to found exactly what we were looking for despite pretty stringent requirements. I highly recommend him and would definitely call him again for any RE needs we have in the future. Rob L.
Mark was recommended to me by someone who had sold her own home through him & who had also been in the real estate business. Contacting him at first in the latter part of 2013, I just wanted to know what my options were. Mark took the time to go through them with me & let me ponder for as long as I needed. With absolutely no pressure, he contacted me from time to time to see where I was at in my thought process & also to inform me of what was happening in the market in South Orange. Finally, in February of 2014, all of the elements were in line for a sale to take place. Mark came by & we spoke of how we would sell the house, when, the time frame involved & prices. Everything was up front & Mark was sure to explain the process as it unfolded. He was available to answer any & all of my queries & has been a solid supporter from the beginning up until now, as we are still undecided if we will stay in the area or not. And if we are to go elsewhere, Mark is ready to help! Mark Slade knows his business extremely well & got us top dollar for our home. His care & knowledge of the personal element & experience; however, is in my humble opinion, a game changer. Selling one's home is far too intimate & personal an event to entrust to just anybody. Mark is not just anybody, & I highly recommend him whether you are buying, selling, renting or need an expert opinion. mel rigas
It was an absolute pleasure to work with Mark Slade on my recent purchase in South Orange. This was a difficult transaction (short sale), and Mark made himself completely available at every turn. He kept on top of all the details needed in a short sale, anticipated the next steps and kept us sane throughout. If you are looking for a professional, committed and informed agent in this community, Mark is wonderful. He is of the highest integrity, seems to love the work that he does, and is extremely hardworking. I recommend him without hesitation! ntricamo4
Mark sold my Summit Home for me in quick order and at a great price. As he promised, he had wonderful pictures that showed my home off in the best possible way. A major point of difference was the video he produced; it was the talk of my neighbors and buyers alike, as it provided everyone with a real life tour of the home as depicted by “virtual” agent who could talk to all the benefits and features of the home, including prospective changes that would add even more value to the home. He made the process easy for me and my family and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to sell their Summit home, or any town’s home! octaviojmendes
As first time home buyers, we wanted someone knowledgeable of the area, yet personable, and understanding of the fact that we had questions...lots of questions. We found Mark after doing a web search for agents in the Maplewood area; his background, experience and expertise seemed the perfect fit. He was great. He walked us through every step of the process, and provided wise advice when needed. He patiently showed us a huge amount of homes over the course of 9 months, and always worked around our schedule. He was always available, especially when we encountered bumps along the way (he gave up a scheduled vacation to deal with them). He's approachable, communicative and wants what is best for you. We ended up finding a fantastic home - which happens to be behind his. So our neighborhood realtor is literally our neighbor! Which worked out well for us - we've already borrowed his lawn mower, leaf blower, rake, ladder, etc. Call him. You won't regret it. Mark, if you're reading this: we still have your rake and two ladders... Matt Ramsey
If it weren't for Mark, I would never have been able to sell my old house and buy a new one. There were a number of unexpected, serious roadblocks to both transactions and it was Mark's expertise, skills and good humor that got me past these challenges. He helped me every step of the way! user3752237
Mark was fantastic from our first meeting with him to the follow-up after our closing. He took the time to show us around the neighborhood and help us to understand what he likes so much about living in the area. He led us through the whole process of buying our home with a steady and practiced hand. user5510965
Mark made the sale of my house a breeze for me. He handled all the difficult stuff and went above and beyond to help me. I would recommend him to anyone, buyer or seller. djgrrr17
Mark was very well recommended by a co-worker who is a loan officer at a major financial institution. Mark came to the rescue in a very short notice (I emailed him at around 10am and he was at my house by 7:30pm with comps and ALL of my area info). Mark did a walk thru and gave us some feedback on staging; he was extremely helpful and very professional. He also made the entire transaction very easy with all his high tech tools to accommodate our situation, my husband was already working in Florida while I was still working in New Jersey getting the house ready for sale. The first day he listed the house to the public we got 2 offers from the first 2 showings on the same day!!!!!! We went thru some ups and downs with the buyers but Mark was there for us NON STOP until the deal was solid, I got emails from him sometimes at 1am, he came to my house to help me scan some documents on a Sunday holiday, I mean he was our true advocate. He returned all phone calls promptly, he made a video of our home, he took great pictures and he was always available. I will highly recommend him! marianap70
Mark is excellent. I wholeheartedly recommend him. He makes the process as easy as possible. Further, if you are selling a house, he knows how to market it better than most realtors. user9850563
Mark was fantastic helping us market and sell our home. He knows the market well and is very savvy. We would recommend him to anyone interested in selling or looking for a home. lizmpld
Knowledgeable, communicable, not pushy and straightforward. Mark was always on time throughout our home serch visitations. Being new to the area Mark provided a wealth of information to get us acquinted with neighbourhood. user8954586
Mark is an energetic and straight forward agent that clearly enjoys being a Realtor in a town that he loves. He was personable and professional in all aspects of our interactions. Mark made navigating the housing market in Maplewood accessible to us as first time home buyers and is able to offer advice on a range of subjects. user0495878
Mark Slade was referred to me by a former satisfied client who is a good friend of mine. He was prompt, professional, and knowlegdable. While his listing price seemed low to me after living there for 18 wonderful years, I trusted him. He priced it to sell. He sold my home in a bidding war in 10 days! I received top dollar on my home. Mark was available through text, phone, email throughout the process of selling and buying another home. He was great every step of the way guiding me through the process. I am grateful to have had the opprtunity to work and benefit from the high level of humanity and professionalism of Mark Slade. user37081203
I would like to take time to recommend Mark Slade on his performance getting our house listed and sold. Mark did an excellent job and it was a pleasurable experience. Mark was always willing to offer his assistance. I would recommend him for any endeavor. user9211709
Mark is a true professional in every sense of the word. His knowledge, creativity and thoroughness is second to none. Mark is pleasant to deal with, extremely responsive and does what it takes to get the job done. I would refer Mark to anyone whether they are looking to buy or sell a home. Thank you, once again, Mark! Barbara B
Mark is a professional agent who has gone above and beyond in property transactions while selling during a difficult market. He helped with the selling of my town home and also with the purchase of a new home. He really cares about his clients and does all he can to make sure they are happy. Mark was always available when we needed him and he was very knowledgable. user7012854
Mark Slade is truly the best. He has a passion and enthusiasm for the Maplewood area which is unsurmountable - if I could give him 7 stars for local knowledge I would! He also combines this with a unique ability to find houses which meet both our detailed needs (airy, renovated and with a room big enough for a photo studio - not easy to find in Northern NJ!) and still fall within our modest price range. With an extensive creative background in the fashion industry he can envision a perfect use for that den or a perfect way to stage that small 3rd bedroom. In addition, Mark is always working for you. Sticking points which could have led to annoying negotiations topple like dominoes when you're dealing with Mark. He is constantly making things happen with an enthusiastic, positive attitude and will stand up for you both as a buyer and seller's agent. We've bought two houses with Mark Slade as our realtor and couldn't be happier. user8145255
I worked with Mark on a very complicated short sale process. He was extremely well versed in all of the technical issues involved, never gave up despite very challenging circumstances, kept me well informed throughout the process and was a compassionate and postive presence throughout. Mark has also provided guidance and shown properties with great knowledge in both the purchase and rental arenas. user0433847
Mark helped me to buy an apartment in Summit. I was really impressed by his level of professionalism and dedication. He was extremely helpful even in force-major circumstances (hurricane Sandy). I would recommend his assistance to any property buyer. Vadim user51797
We could not have asked for anyone more perfectly suited to the task of helping us find and buy our first home, under extraordinary time & other pressure. From the first conversation to the day we closed (and beyond), Mark was a patient and extremely competent partner in the process. He explained every single step of the process, over and over and over, helping us to resolve problems as they arose, providing referrals and advice when we asked for them, and remaining constantly available to talk things over. He's better than a first-time homebuyer's class! I'd recommend him to anyone. user5794781
Mark helped us complete a short sale purchase over the course of five months. He was always available to meet with us during the weekend, as we could only see houses Saturday and Sunday while we're not at work. He always picked us up from the train station and drove around to see houses in his own car. He is very knowledgeable of the Maplewood/South Orange area and he gave us valuable advice. Even though the process of buying the house lasted longer because of the seller's bank slower response he helped us complete the purchase. In addition he obtained a substantial credit for us to help us complete some repair work and he provided us with good contacts for a lawyer, home inspector and other helpful contacts. We really got the feeling that he was fighting for our best interests. We recommend Mark for anybody who is looking to buy a house and want a very knowledgeable agent on their side. user871889
Despite all the efforts of the buyers, other agent & attorney's- Mark is the sole reason our deal was held together and we are now in our new home. He was the most effective in navigating not only the price discussion, but all the ins and outs related to inspection results and closing dates. He was 100% there for us- and always made us feel like we were his #1 priority (even though I'm sure he had plenty else going on!!). amy.mazin
Mark Slade was competent, personable and highly professional. He helped steer us through a normally intricate and unsettling process often ironing out the rough spots. Our house sold quickly and we attribute this in large part to his expertise and guidance. If you want your house sold, you would be well served to utilize the services of Mark to guide you through the process. We're glad we did! user462243
Mark was a true professional! He made our first home purchase a great experience. He truely had our best interests at heart and worked hard to get us the best deal possible. He went above and beyond the call of duty answering our questions at all hours of the night. He made himself available whenever we needed something. I highly recommend using mark for any of future home transactions as he is someone you can trust! You can't buy the integrity that mark exemplifies! Please consider him for your next home purchase. Tracy Tyson
My fiance and I just bought our first house with Mark's help. We had heard horror stories about how long and complicated buying a house could be....this wasn't the case. Mark went above and beyond the call of duty, he called us daily if neccessary to help move things along, we were all moved into our house in a little over a month.

Mark helped us market and successfully sell our house in Maplewood in July 2011. I know that a good agent can add tremendous value, so I really spent time searching for the right agent. I went out to open houses in the area and talked to over fifteen agents, of which we interviewed three and finally decided to hire Mark as our agent. Turn out we made an excellent decision. Mark is very knowledgable in both local and macro real estate market. He understands the selling points of each house and how to market to the right buyers. His staging ideas are top notch and economical. With less than a hundred dollar in material cost, we brightened up our kitchen and fixed the broken panel, making the kitchen a beautiful selling point of the house. He even brought in his own furniture to help stage our houses to keep the cost down. Mark was very responsive. He promptly answered my calls and E-mails nights and weekends. He was always available when we needed him. I knew he had many houses listed with him, and I'm not sure how he managed to be this responsive. It was beyond doubt Mark is the hardest-working agents I have ever worked with. Most importantly, Mark's honesty and integrity are second to none, a trait that is rarely found in many real estate agents. He always work with my best interests at heart. At one point in the transaction, I considered rejecting the offer, refinancing our loan and putting the house up for rent. Both he and I knew that he wouldn't get a penny had I gone that route. Yet, as deligently as he was selling my house, he ensured I have enough information to make that rent or sell decision. Heck he even helped me prepare comps for tax appeal and put me in touch with a mortgage broker so I can refinance my loan if I decided to rent. I strongly recommend Mark Slade as your real estate agent. Through the sales process, we have developed our friendship and Mark has become more than an agent to me. If you are selling or buying a house, give Mark a chance to at least present his approach to you. He surpassed my expectation in every way, and I'm sure he will do the same for you. DavidHoon
When we met Mark, we knew he would be the perfect partner in our search for a property in Maplewood. His knowledge of the town and all of the surrounding areas impressed us during our first meeting - as did his willingness to be available to us to answer all of our questions and talk through our options. Mark certainly went above and beyond the call of duty. He made himself available day and night by phone and by email, and dependably provided information and answers when we needed them. To first-time purchasers, the buying process could have quickly become quite overwhelming. For us, it did not. We had a trusted partner to help us feel confident throughout the process. mtalbi

Mark was amazing from start to finish. He was patient, kind, encouraging, and accessible. He always returned our calls and emails right away, and he made the daunting process of buying our first house much less overwhelming than it could have been. I have already recommened him and I'm sure I will do so many more times in the years to come. Joy Peskin
I have worked with numerous realtors and found Mark to be the hardest working and most knowledgeable realtor I have worked with. He is very passionate about his job and extremely knowledgable about the local market and the buying/selling process. I'd highly recommend him. DougMishkin
Mark was a great person to work with, he was professional and directed through our entire process. He was able to direct and keep us focused in the ever changing sellers market. it was really easy to survive "selling a house" with Mark leading the way. He is curtious, well versed in the market trends,and teriffic to talk to- he listens! Janet & Steve Crane janetmcrane
Mark listed my home and sold it in 3 months in the middle of the winter season! He personally sat every open house, unlike some listing agents who send assistants only. On my purchase, he has extensive knowledge of older historic homes. This helped us save money by calculating total cost of a home purchase---listing price plus any renovations we would need to do. Mark has great local knowledge of the Maplewood, NJ area. justal31
