Harriett and Robert have graciously shared their story about working with Mark Thudium to sell their Leola home of 52 years and move to Landis Homes.
We have known Mark for many years as he previously lived in our neighborhood in Leola, and several years ago, he was also our grandson's little league coach. We felt very comfortable asking Mark to be our Realtor. We especially were pleased to work with Mark because he was familiar with selling homes in Conestoga Valley school district. We didn't even consider working with any other Realtors, we thought Mark would be the best, and he was.
We had been planning our move to Landis Homes and were waiting for notice that housing was available for us to move in. Once a place became available, we called Mark and asked for his help selling our home.
Mark went over the process of listing and selling our home and explained exactly the steps he would take for a successful sale. We fixed a few minor things around the house and worked with Mark's stager to prep the home. Mark helped us list the home in December 2021, as we anticipated moving to Landis Homes in January 2022.
We appreciated the plan for showings and consolidating them into a few days. We stayed at a local hotel for a few days at Mark's suggestion. This was wise advice as it eliminated any repeated interruption into our daily lives, as our home was visited 48 times by prospective buyers.
We received 15 offers for our home. Mark and his assistant, Emily, reviewed the offers in depth before presenting them to us. Although a few buyers offered a higher sales price than the one we chose, Mark helped us evaluate all the proposals based on the buyer's financial strength, contract contingencies, and specific settlement timelines that worked best for us. We were confident that Mark helped us make the best choice.
We did have a slight hiccup at closing with the buyer. However, Mark & Emily helped us to navigate that issue quickly and efficiently. They acted as our liaisons and were excellent advocates to ensure that all went as planned.
Mark is a true professional and extremely thorough when explaining the listing process. He has an excellent support team that helped us through every step. We appreciated his experience and dedication to ensuring our real estate transaction was successful!
