"To say that you and your team were a pleasure to work with would be a gross understatement. It's hard to envision a sale, much less completion of the transaction without the total professionalism, competence and responsiveness of your whole team. Mark, without your contacts we would still be floundering. You really are a full service team. We're convinced there is no better real estate sales team and are very grateful to have had this experience with you. You made a very difficult process look easy. Many thanks."
John & Carol Wolf
"We know by reputation that Mark and his team at VDB Estates have numerous clients because of their ability to deliver. But we believe another reason is because they make you feel as though you are their ONLY client. From the pre-market to close, Mark and his team are unmatched in professionalism, market knowledge, and attention to detail. Simply put, they are the best."
John & Karen Williams
"Mark von der Burg is "one in a million". Who ever is fortunate enough to get to know Mark is indeed blessed. He's a friend who is always there for you that will get the job done for you quickly, effectively and professionally.
We custom built our house in Redmond in 1975, it was beautiful and and we raised our three boys in it. But alas when we decided to finally sell it in 2013, we found that it, as all houses do, had aged. Mark advised us on how to restore it to it's former beauty at a surprisingly low cost. He provided all the invaluable help on who, what, when and how.
During the actual time it went on the market, he used, very impressively, all the up-to-the-minute marketing tools available and the house sold in just three days. Then came the paper work, the inspection, the final negotiations, the walk through, and the signing etc., all of it seemed so overwhelming, but in his usual calm and knowledgeably manner put us at ease and made it an enjoyable experience.
Judy and I can't thank Mark and his most wonderful and very professional associates enough. I do recommend Mark most highly as he really is the BEST! If you want a "friend", rather than a "salesman", to sell your house, to get you the best price, with the least hassle, and actually turn a harrowing experience into one that's relaxing and fun, choose Mark von der Burg."
Chazz & Judy Kawabori
"In the past five years, Mark has handled five transactions for us. Mark and his team are the most professional and over the top we have had the pleasure to work with. We have recommended him on several occasions and he is a true asset to your company."
Richard & Linda Breshears
"'Positive' doesn’t describe enough our experience with Mark and his team. Wow. We are so happy with Mark – his knowledge, pleasant attitude, patience, and experience brought us the best in both our sale and our purchase. He knew what to do when and also went to bat for us after the sale was final. We couldn’t be more pleased, we are so grateful!"
Jon & Tanya Avner
"Mark was courteous, knowledgeable, and professional. The thing that assisted us most was his knowledge of the area. If I were to describe the service I received from Mark, I would simply say PERFECT!"
Dr. Eric Stern, MD
"Could not have closed the deal without Mark! He gave us continuous quality. He took the time to satisfy the customer. I was constantly informed as to the status of our offer."
"Mark is an ultimate pro!! We trusted him implicitly in every aspect of selling our Bellevue home and buying our Carnation home. His honesty and sincerity constantly put us at ease. He patiently answered all of our questions no matter how crazy they may have seemed! We knew he would handle all aspects of our move with professionalism. It was very comforting to put everything in his capable hands and know it would be expertly handled."
Art & Pat Fiala
"Just wanted to say thanks once again for all you did to make our 'dream home' a reality. Your professionalism and dedication to making things happen was always reassuring - and your sense of humor kept it fun! We hope to stay settled for a while . . . but we won't hesitate to tell our friends that you're truly the moving guy extraordinaire!"
David & Joanie Tanonis
"We selected Mark to assist us with the sale of our home and worked with him for about 8 weeks from the initial interview to select an agent through closing. There are many aspects of working with Mark that set him apart from other agents. His investment in preparing the house for the sale and the production of marketing materials is much greater than any other agent we interviewed. The quality of the materials was exceptional. Mark's professionalism was apparent at every stage of the process. He maintained almost daily contact to keep us appraised of progress and assist us with closing. During the process we realized that the team Mark has assembled to assist him were a critical component of his service. Every member of his team with whom we worked demonstrated the same level of professionalism, competency and dedication to a successful sale that Mark demonstrated from our first contact. In retrospect we can not imagine being better served in selling our home."
"Mark gave us valuable advice as to how to sell our old house. Mark got us out from under a big burden AND knew what was available to us. We spent less than a day looking before we found what we wanted."
Gordon & Janet Schumacker
"Mark is professional, diligent and effective, and most importantly, he does everything he says he is going to do. He is a pleasure to work with and a credit to the Coldwell Banker Bain organization."
Pam & Gary Hammer
"Mr. von der Burg truly represents the best in the profession! Mark represented us to buy our current home and he also represented us to sell our previous home. From the first time we met, Mark showed exceptional ability to listen to our needs, and he has great understanding of the market. Mark is always going for the extra mile in negotiations, showings, meeting with appraisers, inspectors, or other brokers with the clear focus on providing the best service for us. Mark is extremely well organized and his effort to achieve perfection are evident by the extraordinary team work from every staff member in his office. Both of our real estate transactions proceeded smoothly. We are fortunate to have Mark as our representative."
Jan Thijssen & Tueng Shen
"We have bought two homes and sold two homes with Mark so far. Mark was very professional and knowledgeable in our transactions, and was highly regarded by his peers, which made the transaction proceed smoothly. We would not work with Mark four times unless we had complete confidence in his ability to get the job done. We wouldn't hesitate to refer him to our friends and family, or work with him again in the future."
Dr. Michael & Melinda Johnson
"Thank you for making our dream home a reality. Your knowledge and ability to negotiate made all the difference and was key in closing the deal."
