“We loved watching our dogs play in the spacious backyard and enjoying driveway cocktail parties”
I purchased the charming cottage on a fantastic lot in Lake Claire nearly 10 years ago with visions of the longterm family home I would build here. Since then, I met and married my wife and brought our first son home. We loved watching our dogs play in the spacious backyard and enjoying “driveway cocktail parties” at our neighbor’s home. When our son was born, our generous and friendly neighbors up and down the street brought us meals and gifts to celebrate his arrival. My wife took our little boy to play at the numerous close-by neighborhood parks that fill with neighborhood children and their parents each morning and afternoon, and for long runs in his stroller along Freedom Path and the Beltline. Our family regularly walks through the neighborhood in the evening, sometimes after enjoying an outside dinner at Fellini’s or La Fonda, or before swinging into Candler Market for a treat from the King of Pops cooler. Each year, as festival season rolls around, we enjoy the ease and convenience of simply walking over to Candler Park to enjoy the festivals and bypass driving and parking altogether. Our location in Lake Claire has afforded us the quiet serenity and green space of living near the Land Trust and abundant park land, while being just a hop, skip, and a jump from Little 5 Points, the Inman Park restaurant scene, Midtown attractions, Downtown offices, and Decatur Square.

It was a pleasure working with Marc. He took our needs/wants into consideration to locate a variety of properties. He went above and beyond to help us find the perfect home.Highly likely to recommend (via Zillow)
Marc definitely is an expert in Real Estate, especially In-town area. He is very professional, easy to talk to and he is with you during the whole process till the end and beyond. We purchased our home more than 2 years ago, but we always call him for an expert opinion.
You will enjoy working with him.Highly likely to recommend (via Zillow)
In January I referred Marc to a very dear friend who inherited her Aunt's 130 year old home. In weeks Marc had a contract, and then a back-up contract. Impressive; especially because the first two real estate agents my friend spoke with said that she should have the historic home demolished and sell the property as a parking lot. My friend adores Marc, and I appreciate the respect he brought to her family home.Highly likely to recommend (via Zillow)
Marc has the experience to see through the noise that is the local real estate market to get you not only the best price on selling your home but also the home that suits you best for you to then move in to. We know, we used him to sell and buy our last two homes.
The home we sold went under contract in 30 days if that tells you anything about his talent as a listing agent. The home we then bought was not only a perfect fit for us but was wanted by at least 3 other buyers the day after we had our offer in. Marc was quick and nimble in getting us through both the sale and buy. He brought a soothing calm when things got a little hectic. He negotiated with skill and got us the best prices on both sides of our deals. I would use Marc again but most of all I would recommend him to anyone that needed a savvy gentleman to help them with their real estate needs.Highly likely to recommend (via Zillow)
Marc knows the area (East Atlanta Village and surrounding neighborhoods) better than just about anyone. There are few houses that he hasn't stepped foot in! He knows the ups, downs and trends for each as he has been well connected with area residents, businesses, and community groups for quite some time.
I was a seller, but I believe that Marc is just what a buyer needs as well - a well informed, personable champion looking out for your best interests.Highly likely to recommend (via Zillow)
We had a great experience with Marc. We were particularly impressed with his knowledge of the neighborhoods we were interested in, including architectural styles and history. He understood what we were looking for and came up with smart ideas for finding it.Highly likely to recommend (via Zillow)
Marc is extremely knowledgeable about the intown Atlanta market and its quirks. He is a true professional and works hard to help his clients find the property that they want and need.Highly likely to recommend (via Zillow)
Marc knew the neighborhood I was interested in as well or better than anyone I've met, and lives there as well. His enthusiasm for the community and knowledge of micro-locations within it was incredibly helpful in moving through the process. Negotiations were fairly quick and easy and the process as a whole was as stress-free as I can imagine these things get.Highly likely to recommend (via Zillow)
My wife and I used Marc and just closed on our first home. He made the process easy from start to finish. We were working with a limited budget and he was able to find us exactly what we wanted in a great location. I would certainly recommend Marc to anyone looking to buy a house in the Atlanta area. His schedule is flexible (nights/weekends) and he really made us feel comfortable from the first time we met. Thanks Marc!!!Highly likely to recommend (via Zillow)
There aren’t enough good things you can say about Marc and his team. We had a complicated closing and contract due to our house being a new build. I am so thankful we had an agent who was extremely experienced and knew what to do in every situation. Marc genuinely cared about our circumstances and our family more than “selling a home” and getting his cut.Highly likely to recommend (via Zillow)
