Testimonials

Mark was an absolutely pleasure to work with! We were seeing homes on our own, before we met Mark at a listing for a house he was selling. From that day forward, Mark went around with us to multiple viewings and never pressured us to hire him as our realtor. We eventually hired Mark and I'm glad we made the decision to move forward with him. Mark was readily available, prompt to showings, and was timely in his communication. In a tough seller’s market, Mark was patient throughout and never pushed us to make decisions we weren't comfortable with. At the end, we purchased our first home for a great deal with the help of Mark. We have had a lot of good laughs together and a wonderful first time buying experience.  Looking forward to working with you again!"

When we found ourselves looking for a home to lease within a tight timeline we turned to Mark for help.  We have worked with Mark before and we knew that he was the right person to help us again.  Mark was absolutely amazing.  We know that Mark is a busy Realtor helping many families, and yet he always managed to make us feel like we were his only clients. Throughout our search Mark made himself available to view homes on extremely short notice so that we were able to quickly find what we were looking for in this tight market. 
Mark has a professional, steady, and patient approach. He is relaxed and fun to spend time with, yet he is dedicated, and laser focussed when required.  When asked he provided honest advice, and he never pressured us to hurry through a showing or to make a decision we weren’t comfortable with.
We would strongly recommend anyone who is looking for a home to contact Mark.

I had an excellent experience with Mark. Mark initially helped me sell my condo, he was knowledgeable of the area and we were able to sell over asking. Mark then helped me with a purchase and with a very challenging buyers market at this time, Mark was patient and made himself available whenever necessary. He was available for questions and concerns and helped keep the anxiety of a closing time frame at ease. In the end I was able to find a house and I came in $80,000 under budget! Thanks Mark for being more than patient throughout this experience!

Mark was very patient and understanding as we were trying to figure out what we wanted. He didn’t pressure us into anything while at the same time informing us of opportunities, what is good and not good. He is always available to answer our many questions!  Thanks Mark!  We recommend you to our family and friends!

Mark went above and beyond from the moment we met him.  Made the entire process extremely easy for us and hod our best interest at heart when looking at properties.  The service provided was beyond anything we were expecting, and we’re grateful for the entire experience to have someone so professional yet so genuine helping along the way.

Mark was great to have in our corner!  He took care of everything, including prepping the house for sale, to great marketing and selling strategy.  This ultimately led to a sale well above our asking price, and well above our expectations!  Thanks so much Mark.  We're happy to recommend you to everyone we know.  Great work!

My family and I were more than happy buying our first home. Mark was great to work with and his knowledge of the surrounding areas was very helpful. Mark knew what we were looking for and was more than helpful with finding the perfect home for us.  Mark really knew what to look for inside the house to guide us in the right direction with pointing out any issues that might arise in a later date.  Mark was there for us 24/7 and worked totally with our schedule He showed us homes and was very honest and with that he treated us like we were family. We would definitely have Mark represent us again and has become a friend of our family.

I don't even know where to begin with explaining the appreciation for Mark in our journey for finding our first home. From the beginning Mark has been supportive in guiding us in the search for our home. Mark goes above and beyond to make you feel comfortable and make the home buying process a stress free experience. He walks you through every step, is incredibly informative and understanding. Not once did I feel pressure from Mark nor did I feel Mark had anything but our best interest in mind. Mark was accommodating and really paid attention to what we were looking for. When working with Mark you really feel like he is looking out for you and would never present you something he wouldn't present to himself or his family. We knew we were in good hands working with Mark and are happy that we found a realtor we can go to when its time sell and find our next home. Mark's passion and care for his clients shines through and we could not be happier with our experience! Thank you Mark for all your hard work and dedication to our dreams!

If you are looking for an agent that will work with you to find the home you are looking for or to sell your current home in a supportive and pressure free way Mark deGroot is that agent….Mark helped us figure out what we really wanted in a home, not to mention where, setting up and travelling to showings as far a way as Brantford and Oro-Medonte.  We both enjoyed working with Mark so we had him sell our home in Burlington three months later.  He prepared the house for sale staging it and marketing it so well that it sold within 24 hours for 100% of asking price.  Mark understands the Burlington market well and knew just how to market the house.  He even looked after the house until the close date as we were ½ hour away.  Mark is an agent that sees the job through even after the for-sale sign comes down.
We enjoyed working with Mark and felt he really got to know us and would work with him again.

Professional service from start to finish! Mark helped me fully understand what it takes to get a house ready to sell and even went as far as helping with some last minute preparation. Before listing he explained clearly how the system works, what to expect, and was always eager to answer any questions I had. I'd highly recommend Mark's services to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a house.

Mark was a real pleasure to have as my real estate agent, he offered excellent advice, answered every question promptly and helped me make informed decisions. Mark really knows his business; he came to our initial meeting with very helpful information and explained the selling process in a way that definitely showed his expertise in real estate.  Mark helped me on the sale of my house and assisted in purchasing my new home, he was quick and responsive as if I was his only client!  I would highly recommend him and I will definitely be referring my family and friends to Mark.

In a market where houses buy and sell and turn over quite quickly, you find that most real estate agents are quick and want to move on to the next.  Well I lucked in when I found Mark deGroot at Royal LePage! With Mark’s help, I bought a wonderful waterfront condo in Oakville. From the first day, Mark took his time to explain everything about the unit and the building from beginning to end. A gentleman with consideration and care, it showed on the first meeting. Very professional and courteous.  I wondered all the time, if back in the office at Royal LePage, do they really know what a first class sales person they have in Mark?  Other realtors normally push papers in front to be signed, and out the door……but no, here was Mark explaining paragraph by paragraph, page by page what each meant and how it would affect me. That’s really different! Quite refreshing in this billion dollar industry.  Actually, I can honestly say I have never experienced that type of dedication and care that a realtor has ever taken to explain items, share experiences – Yep, Mark is a different type of real estate agent. He is one that showed care where other agents are just in a rush and on to the next. Thanks Mark! Your dedication comes to your clients first and that is why you will have long lasting clients and friends! I am already recommending family and friends to make sure they use Mark as I know they will get the best service and dedication!

Mark was wonderful to work with. He took the time to understand what we were looking for and to find the perfect home for us. He was extremely steady and supportive throughout the process and he went above and beyond to help us with all of the details- big and small.

Karoline & Brian F.


Mark was a phenomenal help in finding the perfect home for my husband and I - we thoroughly enjoyed "house shopping" with him, and would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a real estate agent to help them with the process of this huge life decision of buying a home! 
Mark certainly goes above and beyond, is genuine, patient, and trustworthy. 
Thank you Mark for your generosity and time in helping us!

Very helpful, knowledgeable and always give genuine advice.

My husband and I wanted to take a moment to thank you for your support with the recent purchase of our new home and the sale of our existing home. We've met many different types of sales people over the years and we were very impressed with your professionalism, follow-up and thoroughness! And honoured to have you as our agent - and the only agent that we would ever refer on to our friends and neighbours!

Mark recently helped me find the perfect home for me and my daughter. After days / weeks of viewing properties I am extremely happy with my new home. Mark was very diligent, hard working and most importantly kept my best interest in mind throughout the entire process. Thanks Mark for a great experience! I learned lots from you and appreciate your honesty. Cheers!

Mark stands above the crowd of sales folks when it comes to going above and beyond. His saying "I come with the house" literally is a blessing. From helping touch up paint at my home to making time to make sure we are comfortable with the whole buying and selling a home, you will find it hard to meet anyone like Mark. I would recommend Mark to any of my friends and colleagues and speak to Mark before you buy or sell a home. You have nothing to lose AND worth of knowledge and insight to gain.

Hey its all people working with people to make it happen! The issue is finding the right person!
Mark recently successfully marketed and sold a specialized property. He took it all in stride by carefully assessing the property, the target buyer and market, put together a well thought out and professional strategy and then successfully executed.
I have would strongly recommend Mark.
Thank-you Mark, it was a pleasure working with you, and I would do it again!

For the 2nd year, Mark has helped me rent out my condo in Burlington. Mark's attention to detail, work ethic and character made working with him a great experience. The process moved quickly and Mark made sure to update me every step of the way. I would recommend Mark for anyone looking to buy or sell!

Mark was amazing at helping my boyfriend and I find a home. He was patient, kind, and never hesitant to answer any of our questions at any time of the day. It took us a while and throughout the whole process, Mark stayed positive and never made us feel anything but comfortable. He was honest and had great determination in finding us the place we wanted. I highly recommend him for anyone looking to buy or sell!
