Mark was incredible to work with throughout our home sale process.

I cannot say enough about the experience we had with our Realtor, Mark Barnes, in finding a retirement home in Summerville. He was the most professional, honest, knowledgable and kind gentlemen you could ever wish for. Mark's responsiveness to email, text and phone calls was EXCEPTIONAL. If he didn't have an answer to our question he would go out of his way to get answers and respond as quickly as he could. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a place in the beautiful Charleston area. My daughter and her fiance will also be working with him in their search for their first home next summer. It was the best experience I have had with a Realtor he is the BEST!!!!Joyce K.
