I previously had another broker and listed with her for about one year. During this year I did not personally hear from her even one time. Questions raised were referred to someone else. No offers where received and she let the listing expire w/o any contact with me. Mark Dolan was professional and responsive. He sold my property within 6 months and no major problems were encountered during escrow.

Mark Dolan was reachable, listened to my concerns and acted on them. Presented offers and counter offers in a timely manner. The transaction was accomplished professionally. I would utilize Mark Dolan’s expertise again if the need should arise.

Mark Dolan was wonderful – very professional and kept us informed. Truly an asset to your company! We only wish we’d found him a few years earlier.
Our realtor, Mark Dolan, rendered a magnificent, professional service. Beyond our expectation. Staff members were very cooperative and helpful. Thank you all.

I had the opportunity to enlist the services of Mark Dolan both as a buyer and as a seller of residential property during the same time period. Mark always had his client’s interests/priorities clear in his mind and strove to achieve the same. Mark was always professional. He did what he promised to do at the agreed upon time. His follow-up was impeccable and he kept me posted regarding the progress of various transactions. I would have him on my team any time.
Mark Dolan was a pleasure to work with. As an enthusiastic and aggressive Realtor he assured us that we should list our home at $20,000 higher than competitive agents suggested. To back up his recommendation he suggested we get an appraisal of our property up front which we did. This appraisal helped us in selling our home for $15,000 more than the other Realtors thought it was worth. In addition he verified the creditworthiness of three contingency buyers lined up in front of our sale to insure our acceptance was on solid ground. My wife and I have bought and sold seven (7) homes in our lifetime. Mark Dolan was the best Realtor by far.
Mark Dolan provided the exact service that we needed. It was quick and ‘painless’. On 3/27/01, we started, and on 5/23/01 escrow closed. So much for using any other realtor!

We had dealt with another Real Estate Company last year on a sale. The buyer was represented by Mark Dolan. Since we were less than happy with our Realtor, when it came time this year to sell some additional property we contacted Mark from your office. We find Mark to be friendly, knowledgeable, honest, well informed in his job. In other words, he is truly the role model of what a Realtor should be. I would (and have) recommended him in an instant.

Mark and his team were amazing in finding a vacation home for us. He negotiated a great deal very efficiently and had an offer accepted immediately. We couldn't ask for a better agent or better service. Thanks Mark-Greg Taylor
My husband and I met Mark Dolan about 20 years ago when we bought a vacation home at Big Bear Lake which was 2 hours from our main residence. We were immediately impressed by Mark's honesty and integrity. We then decided to buy a commercial/retail building in the Village of Big Bear Lake. Of course, we again went to Mark for help. He managed to find us the perfect building, just as he had found us the perfect vacation home. My husband had a massive stroke about 3 years ago and was in the hospital about 10 months. I knew immediately that I would need to sell the commercial building because I needed to spend my time with my husband and concentrate on his recovery. I called Mark and he made the entire process as painless as possible. He managed to get everything done on the internet and I didn't have to travel to Big Bear Lake to do anything. I just put it in Mark's hands and I knew he would make the right decisions on our behalf. We made the life decision a few weeks ago to sell the vacation home. With my husband's disability, we didn't go up there as often as we once did. Again, we just put it in Mark's hands and we knew that everything would be taken care of. Mark had a full-price offer in just a couple of days. Then he went above and beyond for us and he proceeded to donate things to charity and/or took them to the landfill. We didn't have to worry about anything because Mark took care of all of it for us. I jokingly tell people that Mark is our adopted son. That's the kind of friendship we have forged over the past 20 years.
