It took my husband and I two years to decide if we were going to sell our house. Mark Krones was extremely patient with us and never, ever pushy.

When we started considering purchasing a home on the lake, Mark was the first person we called.

Mark was very patient with us throughout the house hunting experience. We looked at a lot of houses. We knew what we wanted and Mark kept telling us that we would find it, and he was right.

Mark answered our texts and phone calls promptly, and we toured the homes we wanted to view within days of asking for a viewing.

Mark is a very good friend, and we trusted his experience with all of his years with Century 21.

Thanks Mark, we love our new lake home!

I was introduced to Mark and Chris by my real estate broker here in Pacifica,California when I sold my home.

I called him while he was actually on vacation and gave him a list of 20 homes I had been researching on the internet.

The very day I arrived in Illinois I was greeted by Chris Sisulak and we had a game plan within an hour for the rest of the week.

I actually found one more house that had only been listed for two days and added it to our list.

Ironically it was the first house we looked at and I fell in love with the home, the location and the current home owners.

Hate to admit it but I came 2000 miles so I really felt I should at least peek at the other 20 homes that I initially intended on viewing.

Chris took me to each and every one of them knowing that I was more than likely going to purchase the very first one we looked at, and of course, ..... I did.

It was a lot of work but he kept up a smile on his face and a little extra pep in his step but we got it done as planned.

I would like to personally thank Chris, Mark, and the whole Century 21 staff for all the extra effort that they provided.

I knew going into the sale process that the location and price range of the house could mean a long time on the market for us, so I chose to work with Mark because of his expertise and his willingness to go above and beyond to get the job done. I truly believe that his ability to inspire confidence and put the eventual buyer at ease was part of what allowed us to get the sale as quickly as we did.

Mark was very prompt with his responses! Also he was very vested in the interest of what was best for our family. He did not seem to be working for his commission, but for our best interest. This was very appealing to us as well as his knowledge of the area, knowledge of homes, and knowledge of quality.

Mark would go the extra mile and research things about the home such as the company that was doing the termite inspection, and he would get us the information for that person so we could contact them. He did this for several things in the home so that we could contact who made/serviced these items and learn more about them. He would also point out things in the home that may be a potential problem, or things that we should be aware of before buying the home.

Mark felt like a family friend before the process was over with purchasing our home.

I cannot give you a testimony for Century 21, but I can give a firm testimony for Mark Krones. He is excellent in every way, and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a home in this area!

I always felt like I was dealing with Mark and not Century 21. However, if Century 21 is responsible for teaching/structuring Mark to be what he is today then I can highly recommend them too!

Usually buying a home is exciting and also a dreaded experience because of all of the loopholes and paperwork and other work that has to be done to make the process happen. But Mark made all of that seem so much less stressful, and so doable. So the experience was overall more of a joy than it was hard work. We have purchased two homes prior to this one (in another city with different realtors) and it has always seemed as though it was hard work, stressful, and emotionally exhausting with a little bit of joy over what we were achieving in the end. This is our first time to experience it any other way and we loved it! It was still hard work, but it was so much more satisfying and enjoyable throughout. Thank you Mark Krones!
