Mark Barnes is the epitomy of professionalism for Ravenel Sotheby's International. His attention to detail, knowledge of the marketplace, suggestions for improvement and caring for his clients are unsurpassed. He superbly handled all details of this transaction, minute to complex and all the while keeping his clients totally and timely updated. I wholeheartedly endorse Mark Barnes and his firm for any real estate transaction.

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!!!!

Mark assisted myself and my wife with purchasing our first home and I have to say we would not have made it through this process without Mark. He made the home buying process so easy when we literally didn’t know what we were doing. No matter the day or time, Mark made sure he was there for us to answer any questions we had. He spent many hours on the weekend visiting the property with us, hosting phone calls and much more. We built a new home and Mark made sure to ask questions that we would have never thought of during our walkthroughs and inspections. He is extremely knowledgeable in the real estate field and has found a client for life. Thank you Mark for all your help in ensuring our first time home buying experience went so well. We look forward to our continued partnership!

Mark was absolutely amazing as our Realtor. We hired him to sell our 85-year old parents' townhome in Mt Pleasant and he surpassed all our expectations in customer service, knowledge, professionalism and enthusiasm. However, he was most amazing with his communication. He not only had to interact daily with my older, not so technologically savvy parents, but he also kept two different sons in Florida and upstate South Carolina updated on daily activities, decisions and coordination between my parents and the showings. His advertising, flyers, and email blasts to fellow Realtors were ideal in every way and played a huge part in the quick and profitable sale of the townhome.

Mark was our agent for selling our beloved home of over 20 years in Mt. Pleasant. We interacted with quite a few agents before choosing to work with Mark and chose him because we appreciated his honesty and especially his kind understanding of what it means to sell a place you love so much. We got the price we needed, and the entire process was smooth and relatively painless. I recommend Mark Barnes with no hesitation to anyone wanting to sell their home. I only wish we could clone him for any future real estate transactions.
