Client Testimonials

"Mark was incredibly knowledgeable, patient and kind through every step of the home buying process. Even today, long after  we've purchased our home, Mark continues to check on us and send us various literature on today's market which affect the value of our home. We were so lucky to have him as our agent. Mark is our agent for life."

"Mark was exceptional. This sale was complicated by several factors (short closing, seller legal issues) but Mark was there every step of the way to ensure our side of things proceeded smoothly. He really went above and beyond for us - even answering questions and handling some remaining issues after closing! He is professional, courteous, and always respectful of our decisions, though when asked for advice he was always spot on - his experience really came through for us on several occasions. He was a huge factor in the success of this sale, and I would absolutely recommend Mark to anyone looking to buy or sell in the north/northwest LA area."

"Mark recently helped my wife and I purchase our first home. We found Mark Gilmore to be highly dedicated to our needs, deeply knowledgeable, easy to work with, and a man of uncommon integrity.


We were not easy clients. Although we didn't have a large budget we were picky. Over the course of four months we must have had Mark show us at least two dozen homes throughout the San Fernando Valley. In that time we made offers on several properties that fell through for one reason or another. Other real estate agents might have written us off as not worth the time and energy, but Mark did not. He never tried to push a property or a price on us just to earn a quick commission, but rather helped us to define what we really needed in a home and encouraged us to keep searching until we found it. He was always willing and eager to help us at every opportunity and made his best effort to accommodate our requests in a timely, kind and professional manner.

Finding a home can be a very challenging process. Sometimes I felt like I was going to war. Thankfully we had Mark in the foxhole with us. His many years of experience and thorough knowledge of the real estate business were on full display as he helped us push though problem after problem, whether it was working to reclaim our earnest money from a shady seller, riding our lender to ensure they met deadlines, or helping us secure the final purchase our home from cold-footed owners attempting to renege on our purchase agreement. Throughout it all Mark was a constant and capable ally.

Not only is Mark a good real estate agent, he is quite simply a good man. He communicates in a calm, thoughtful and forthright manner and deals honestly not only with his clients but with all involved parties. It quickly becomes apparent after working with Mark that he is a man who cares about people and about doing the right thing. Do not hesitate to enlist Mark to help you buy or sell a home."

"Mark Gilmore assisted my family and me with finding a house. We recently closed a deal and we have Mark to thank for a successful ending. He was highly professional, readily available and very approachable. I was honestly expecting the entire process of buying a home to be painful and tedious. However, with Marks help, it was a very smooth and rather enjoyable process. Id highly recommend Mark to people looking to find an agent. I truly appreciate everything that he did for my family and for me."

"I spent months looking for a home for me and my family with another agent... My brother recommended Mark and within a month we found our dream home, he was always available and always explained every question I had thoroughly. It was an absolute pleasure to work with such a professional. The process was pleasant and smooth. I would absolutely recommend Mark to friends, family, or anyone who is serious about making dreams into reality!"

"Opposed to other agents working with other companies, Mark was very helpful and actually showed interest in helping me to purchase a property."

- Arthur H. Tarzana, CA


"I first worked with Mark in 2003 and have referred him to several of my friends since that time. He is honest, ethical, extremely competent and cares a great deal about customer satisfaction. He is a rare find and I highly recommend his services."

- Patrick & Tiffany L. | Granada Hills, CA

 

"Mark was an absolute pleasure to work with. He is very knowledgeable on all aspects of the real estate business. He was always professional. He made me feel as though I was his only client. Great guy!"

- Rebecca A. | Reseda, CA

 

"Mr. Gilmore was a consummate professional who was extremely thorough and was always available if there were any questions or issues that arose. He made a potentially difficult sale, smooth sailing from beginning to end. I would highly recommend him to anyone either looking to sell or purchase real property."

"I have known Mark for a little over 10 years now and have worked with him on four separate transactions (the most recent being this year). Mark is an extraordinary agent who not only performs above and beyond expectations with regard to service and subject matter knowledge, but does so with absolute and utmost integrity. This is why Mark is the only agent I will use in California and why I have highly recommended him to countless friends and family (all who have used him being as equally impressed as I). I am a commercial real estate lawyer and therefore deal with brokers on a regular basis. Unfortunately, my experience has shown that many fall into the trap of being so concerned with "closing the deal" that the client's best interests and objectives take a back seat to such goal. Mark never loses sight of his role as an "agent" (i.e., one who acts on behalf of another), doing his best to make sure that when all is said and done his clients are pleased with the outcome of the transaction. Mark will ask the difficult questions and make sure his clients are aware of, and have considered, all available options. After closing my first transaction with Mark, I asked him why he is so honest in his dealings (he not only highlighted the positive aspects of a property I purchased, but also the negatives), and among his reasons was that he recognizes that working with a client is not a "one shot deal", but hopefully a relationship that continues through the years and extends to a broader network. That has certainly been the case with me."
