These guys are terrific. Mark and Jeff were the listing agents for an antique house and large property which my sisters and I co-owned, and which had been in our family for 80 years. Emotions were high about all aspects of the sale, and my sisters and I did not necessarily agree on things. One thing we did agree on was that we hoped that someone who would value the place in the way that we do, would buy the property. Jeff and Mark clearly understood the aspects we prized in the house and property, and marketed it in a way that was most likely to attract the buyer we wanted. They kept in close communication with each of us (triple the work), got us in agreement on the asking price and other aspects of the listing (amazing), and the whole thing ran more smoothly than I ever would have imagined. I think what made this work for us is that they are ethical, excellent listeners and communicators, intelligent, answered all questions clearly, and presented persuasive logic for their proposals. They promoted our interests, even when it may have cost them something in commission- that’s special. They work hard! They familiarized themselves with all the fine points and history of the house. The house went on the market in November, and showed briskly through the winter. Mark or Jeff, or usually both, attended every showing of the house, and reported back to us on each one. Aside from the excellent web marketing, they did some labor intensive things to give the house more exposure to other real estate agents. Add to all this, they are truly fun to work with- wow. We got the buyers we wanted, at a price we were happy with, in short order. I recommend these two highly.
After a two year fruitless effort to sell our home, Madonna & Phillips did so in less than 4 months from the date of listing. The photography and brochure were outstanding and generated many viewings over a very short period of time. Would highly recommend anyone wishing to sell a home to contact them for a very professional presentation. We are delighted with the outcome.
Mark and Jeff were quite knowledgeable about the local market and provided excellent bidding advice. They made the closing process relatively easy and introduced us to great specialists–local attorney, inspector. They are superb advisors!
Mark and Jeff were terrific in understanding my needs, style of home desired, and helping through the process to closing. They spent several weekends with me and introduced me to a variety of new areas and explained the advantages/disadvantages of each. Once they had a sense of my style, they curated the homes visited to match my desires, avoiding wasting any time. Finally, they were very thorough in facilitating the closing process, coordinating tours, inspections, and follow-ups.
We had the great privilege of working with Mark and Jeff, as they sold us our first home this year. They had great knowledge of the local area, and professionally steered us through the process of becoming young home owners. They are attentive, honest, and generous with advice. From start to finish, they walked us through every step, and went above and beyond the call of realtor duty. Once we closed, they even helped connect us with utility companies, maintenance people, contractors, etc. They made the process of buying a home fun, and manageable. We highly recommend Mark and Jeff to anyone who is in the process of buying or selling a home.
Mark is an excellent real estate agent. He is smart, responsive and totally “gets” what a client is seeking. He didn’t waste my time showing me things that were outside of my desired qualities or price range. I recommend him without any hesitation whatsoever.
We would without any hesitation and actually have recommended Mark and Jeff for both selling or buying a house. Our experience was exceptional from beginning to end, especially navigating any obstacles as they arose.
Mark Madonna and Jeff Phillips were both delightful to work with, gave us great advice about exactly what we needed to do to sell our house and made it happen within the timetable promised. Their attentiveness to our needs was beyond what we expected. They’re a great team. You can’t go wrong.
In a time of increasingly shallow expertise and substance, and hollow promises, Madonna & Phillips truly deliver an unmatched level of knowledge, flawless follow through and unerring advice. They are excellent and exceptional.
