A broker at the top of his game! Mark helped my wife and I make the transition from Sag Harbor, New York to Smithfield, Va. so easy, as well as connecting us with the area's premier builder who just built our new craftsman-style home. On top of that, Mark helped us assimilate into the neighborhood by introducing us to some special people who we now call good friends! Life Is Good!
Mark was both the listing and our buying agent. During the entire process we felt confident that he was strongly representing our buyer's interest. This notion only proves more true with time. It's been over a year now since we purchased our property and we've met numerous new homeowners in our community. Hands down, the most positive feedback and level of appreciation are from those who were served by Mark Edwards.
Mark has helped me with the purchase and sell of two properties in Smithfield , Va. He was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and worked very hard on our behalf. I feel like he over and beyond what one might expect from a realtor to help us secure the properties we were interested in

Thanks for everything you did for us... we'll recommend you both to anyone looking to sell their home in Gatling Pointe.
