Mark is absolutely great to work with. Buying and selling real estate can be very exciting and also very stressful and Mark really helps take a lot of the stress away by always staying in touch and communicating with both sides (buyer & seller). I have worked with many realtors and Mark is one of the best. He works very hard to keeps things moving along quickly as to avoid delays. Mark is very easy to reach. He most always answers when you call and if not he calls right back. Mark is also very generous and even offered for us to stay at his cottage until we were able to get possession of our new home.
Mark was terrific. We spent over a year driving over from Chicago to look at various vacation properties on Lake Michigan with Mark until we finally found the perfect place. He knew the area. He knew the players. He helped us put together offers and counter-offers. He helped us coordinate architects, environmental/dune consultants, septic specialists, attorneys, etc.. The seller(s) kept throwing us curve balls but Mark kept everyone on track. I highly recommend Mark.
Doug was a true pleasure to work with! As a client who was relocating across state lines, it's difficult to find someone you can trust and stay on top of things but Doug made my move and house sale so easy for me! He truly went above and beyond by working with my relo company, coordinating with local vendors and checking on the house while I was not in the area. I can't thank him or recommend him
Mary and Mark Wortman are the best at what they do. They are attentive to every detail, address your all your needs, and do what it takes to get the job done. I have bought and sold property with the Wortmans help and recommend them to friends, associates and anyone looking for a top notch team to handle their real estate needs.
We have worked with Mark to purchase and also sell a home and would highly recommend him to all my friends and family. I really like his style and approach for both the purchase and sale process. Having someone with area knowledge and composed approach made both of our transaction processes smooth. If you are in the market for a main home or vacation home in SW Michigan he's your agent.
4 1/2 years ago we had to sell our parents house in St. Joseph, Michigan. We lived out of town and inquiries with local real estate agents put the value of their home much lower than what we felt was appropriate for the unique qualities of their home. I then spoke with Mark Wortman who had knowledge of their home and like my sister and I, he felt it had a much higher value and that people seeking to buy would "get it" and pay for what the house was. He put together a video montage that was exceptional and the house sold quickly, actually to the first potential buyer who saw the house. I would highly recommend Mark.
Doug was very supportive. He brought us to good homes to visit and assisted in our search greatly. He was open to exchange emails, SMS 24/7. Helped with negotiation, documents and more (as I came from another country, most things I did not know how to do). Really recommend.
We would like to extend the highest regard for Mark Wortman as a realtor. Mark is a man of integrity & absolutely wonderful to work with. His professionalism is unparalleled & we were grateful for his ability to keep focused, decisive, & clear in the midst of stressful & even trying circumstances at times. We enjoyed our conversations with him & have great respect for his expertise in real estate & as a person as well. Mark is creative, well-versed, & strategic. He & his wife Mary are an excellent team & we would welcome the opportunity to work with them on any dealings in the future.
This is the second home I have purchased with Mary Wortman. She was very patient, helpful, friendly, informative and supportive throughout the process. Would highly recommend Mary to any buyer or seller for her skill as a real estate agent!
We had a great experience interfacing with Mark/Doug for the sale of our cottage. They were responsive, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. Would highly recommend them.
Mary is very professional. I thoroughly enjoyed working with her. Her responsiveness was excellent and with her help I found the exact home I was looking for! Thanks Mary!
He was very supportive. Brought good homes to visit and showed all homes I wanted. Open to exchange emails, SMS 24/7. Helped with negotiation, documents and more (as I came from another country, most things I did not know how to do). Really recommend.
