Dear Mark

It was a pleasure to work with you throughout the process of both buying and selling. It was amazing how calm you could be and how you were constantly able to keep me up to the minute with relevant details throughout the process.  You expressed genuine concern, thoughtfulness, reassurance and excellent guidance during the difficult periods.  You have wonderful skills, expertise knowledge, and you are excellent in your profession Mark! Not to mention that you sold my home for a RECORD PRICE in my area!! You are not only an amazing Realtor, you have become a trusted and good friend.
Best wishes to you in the future and THANK YOU!
Fondly,

Mark,
Thank you so much for your help finding a rental home in this fabulous neighbourhood. We are so happy and relieved to be staying here. Thank you also for your kind words of reference to our new landlord, which were overheard by friends and neighbour who let me know.
Our Neighbourhood is better because of people like you and your family. Yet another reason I am so proud to call Norgate our home.
With our thanks,
Karen, Tyler, Nicholas, Oliver, Alexander
                  
We first met Mark Pelesh in mid March of 2009 as we were preparing my Mother's home of 42 years for sale.  She had decided to move into an apartment so we had considerable downsizing and cleaning to do.  Mark was referred to us by a long time good friend. We found Mark to be very dedicated to the task of marketing Mom's house. He was always punctual an attentive to the concerns we had in listing the home.  Nothing was too much trouble and I found he treated the home as if it were his own and expressed pride of ownership.  When dealing with Mom, he took his time to explain all aspects of the transaction carefully and in detail so that Mom could easily understand and was comfortable.  This was of most importance to us for my Mom.  We were also impressed that Mark was always in attendance at all open houses and meetings with inspectors and other agents. It should be noted that Mark does specialize in homes in Norgate Park area but Mom's home was in the Forest Hills area of North Vancouver. In summary, we found Mark to be very courteous, conscientious and professioal with exceptional attention to detail. We highly recommend Mark if you are considering selling or buying a home anywhere in North Vancouver. "

 "When we finally made the tough decision to sell our home and leave North Vancouver, we made what turned out to be a very wise decision to engage Mark as our Realtor.  He gave us a good straightforward and realistic view of what we should expect to get for our home and how long it would take. He then went about getting us a very satisfactory result. Everything happened pretty much as Mark suggested it would but without any of the anxiety and uncertainty that usually accompanies the sale of a house. Mark does practice old fashioned values and conducted himself like the accomplished professional he is throughout the entire process.  If you're considering buying or selling in North Vancouver, please do yourself a favour and speak with Mark."

"It's a pleasure selling a home with Mark Pelesh!  Mark is exceptionally professional, caring, personable and an all around good guy!  He sold our home when neighbours couldn't sell theirs.  We not only found a great realtor, we made a great friend."

 Mark,
"I would like to extend my sincere thanks and appreciation for your tremendous assistance in getting my house sold. As I had mentioned to you, the sale of the home went very smoothly since you became involved with the handling of the property. Overall, you gave me excellent support and assistance during the process which was particularly important because we were not aware of local laws or procedures in your area.  Also your ability to hone in on the critical issues that had been impeding the sale of the home resulted in a quick sale much to our satisfaction.  Needless to say I would recommend you highly and you may feel free to have any prospective purchaser or seller contact me for a reference.  Thank you once again for your tremendous efforts."

"Listing our family home of over 50 years and the house I grew up in with Mark was a VERY POSITIVE EXPERIENCE. Mark was very HELPFUL, PROFESSIONAL, AND READY TO GET THE JOB DONE. I was certainly very happy with the result  being a first time home seller.  Mark resides in Norgate and takes great interest in the history of the area.  I  will highly recommend Mark to my friends when they are ready to sell."

Mark,
"I was at your open house Sunday February 3/08 in Norgate. There is no better place to raise children and have wonderful neighbours. You might get a chuckle of the copy of our interim agreement dated May 1961, the total cost of our home was ,000 and we put down ,000....can you be believe that. I was very impressed with the Drummonds house. I would like to add that I was impressed with your kindness towards me and my sister, and your genuine feeling of Norgate. Thank you so much for chatting to me, and bringing back ford memories."

Mark,
"Our family has owned a home in the Norgate Park area for over 50 years.  It is a great place of kids to grow up, as well as ideal homes for seniors. With the passing of our mother, it came time to sell the family home.  We talked to a small number of realtors to get a take on market conditions, pricing and the like. One of those realtors was Mark, and I must say that he probably had the toughest interview.  There is no doubt that he really knows the Norgate area, as well as its history, as we do, being residents from the beginning.  As a bonus, Mark lives in the area too!  We listed with Mark and our house sold very quickly. In our case all negotiations were done on the phone, and were very straight forward.  We feel very confident with Mark's performance and would highly recommend him."

Mark,
"I did not know Mark personally until he sold my house recently.  Mark had sold my neighbour's house last year after the death of her husband.  She moved without her house being sold.  I observed Mark from a distance, his dedication to the upkeep of that house until it was sold was unbelievable.  He was there everyday checking up, taking garbage out, and mowing the lawn when needed.  I could not believe someone would be so dedicated.
It was a traumatic time for me and Mark showed unbelievable empathy and understanding.  His help to get the home in order for the open house was never ending.  My house sold in 10 days!!  He was honest and up front in all our dealings and continues to go out of his way to be helpful and professional.
If you are thinking of selling your house, Mark is the person to be your Realtor. Mark lives in the neighbourhood and has first hand knowledge of Norgate homes. Mark is trustworthy, hard working,  professional and goes that extra mile for his clients. I recommend Mark Pelesh to be your realtor.  You will not be disappointed."

Mark,
"We have had bad experiences in our past real estate transactions.  It was very apparent to our family that Mark has a sincere commitment to integrity and professional ethics. Mark helped achieve our goals all within 6 days of signing the listing. Mark focused, hands on approach and comprehesive market data gave us peace of mind.  Our relationship with Mark does not end with this transactioin.  We would recommend Mark to anyone."

Mark,
"Our momunental decision to leave Norgate after living here for 24 years was made far less painful by Mark's professionalism and personal attention at every stage of our sale. He demonstrated knowledge and integrity throughout. It was our pleasure to work with Mark in this successful marketing process."
"The best deals are made by good management-not good luck!! If anyone decides it's time to leave or come into this lovely community-call Mark!!"
Many thanks Mark,

 Mark,
"A few words to thank you very much indeed for acting on my behalf for both the purchase of my new home and also the sale of my existing home."
"I chose you to be my listing agent because of your reputation in our community which was clearly of integrity and familiarity with the neighbourhood. You lived up to your reputation in all aspects of the transaction from the very fair assessment of value at the listing stage to the clarity you exhibited in the finalizing of the purchase and sale agreement. This is not an easy time for anyone selling a home and you were able to see the transaction through extremely professionally. It was great to be able to list with an agent of your stature who is committed to our wonderful community."
