See what our clients say

Kristi W., Palo Alto
We interviewed 4 real estate agents when we decided to sell our Eichler.  This house had been in our family for over 50 years.  We live in Texas, so it was important to find someone we could trust.  Mark Easterday stood out as the clear choice!  He was knowledgeable, confident, enthusiastic and very professional.
Our Eichler required a fair amount of work to get it market ready.  Mark kept in constant contact as the repairs and updates were completed, sending pictures and explaining our options.  And the results were spectacular!  Mark has a great sense of style and space and understands the uniqueness of an Eichler.
The house was immaculate and so well staged that I wanted to move in!  We had multiple offers after the first open house. We sold our house well over asking price, and escrow closed in 14 days.  Because of Mark and his team, I consider this a flawless transaction. Mark and his team can consider us lifelong clients!

Mark understood my needs and acted swiftly with tasteful manner. No doubt that he is very professional yet my favorite quality of him is that he does it so with great wits. Never offensive and his wits makes this somewhat stressful transaction sweeter not bitter. If I ever need to buy another house especially an Eichler or sell it, no doubt in my mind that I will ping him the 1st. He is your asset.

Judy & Leo H., Sunnyvale

“Having experienced selling a home numerous times in our lifetime, we knew exactly what to look for in a Realtor. Having a Realtor who knew the ins and outs of owning and maintaining an Eichler was the first thing we looked for in order to sell our home. Mark exceeded our expectations every inch of the way. This agent is incredibly knowledgeable, courteous and professional. His goal is to make this entire experience as smooth and stress-free as possible. He always responded to my phone calls in a timely manner and was able to provide the services needed to sell a home. An excellent decorator was able to find the right selling appeal in the current market and also assisted in hi-lighting the special attributes our home possessed. His team also brought in a crew at a moments notice for repair and color changes. I would highly recommend this realtor and his team to anyone selling their Eichler. You cannot find a better Realtor to get the job done and one who is capable of exceeding YOUR expectations. Mark’s team did an outstanding job! ”

Thank you all for everything during the sale of our house on Machado Avenue.  From fixup through staging to photos, flyers, and the bidding process – it was all handled professionally and smoothly.  Everything that we saw happen was top quality work.  And I know that many things were handled by your team without alerting us needlessly and it’s often the things that we don’t notice as customers that indicate how well you all are at your jobs.  Thank you for all of the things we didn’t notice!

Kim and Jeff S., San Mateo Highlands

We have been dreaming of owning an Eichler for years and Mark helped us make it happen!  He is a consummate professional and we knew after our first meeting that he was the perfect partner for us.  He helped us stay within our tight budget and navigated the complexities of an eccentric seller.  We especially appreciated his conscientiousness and keeping us informed along the process of our purchase.  He even took the time from his family holiday to let us know that our contract was accepted.  We highly recommend Mark.   He is truly an Eichler expert and has a real love for the architecture and mid-century modern design.  Working with him was a real pleasure.

Josh and Grace T., San Mateo

Working with Mark on the finding and purchase of our new home felt more like working with a partner than with an agent.  He patiently worked with us while our budget and tastes drew out the home search for well over a year.  Also, Mark has a very thorough infrastructure in place, and where this really shone was during the offer and financing processes of the sale.  With his help, these pieces seamlessly fell into place.  A great experience overall.

Chris and Amy C., San Jose (Willow Glen)

Mark quickly sold our Eichler in a very tough market. I was pleased with his marketing plan, MESH’s great staging and photography. Our home had never looked better. As a fellow Eichler owner Mark brought a lot of credibility and expertise to our buyers.

Jonathan H. and Jackie B., Sunnyvale

My husband and I recently bought an Eichler, a short sale in Sunnyvale, with Mark as our agent.  I am confident that we would not have been able to get the house (at least, not at the price we paid) if it had not been for Mark’s prior experience with short sales and his ability to collaborate with other agents.  Once we submitted our offer Mark gave us frequent updates on the status of the deal as it slowly ground its way through the bank’s machinery.  Knowing what was going on was key to surviving the weeks of waiting.

After our offer was accepted, Mark was proactive in managing the appraisal, inspections, repair estimates, even keeping an eye on the buckets in the house that were catching rainwater from the leaky roof.  The were a few minor snags along the way as we tried to get the funding and closing to land together, and Mark’s creative problem solving and professionalism ensured that it all came together.  The whole time we worked with Mark it felt as if we were his only clients–he was always responsive, flexible with his time, and closely involved with guiding the deal through to completion.  There just wasn’t that much that we had to do or ourselves or even worry about, which is not the experience some of my friends have had with their home purchases.

About Mark’s network:  Our experience so far was Mark’s referral of Irene Moustakas as our mortgage broker.  Like Mark, Irene was an absolute pleasure to work with, and the two of them teamed up brilliantly.  For various reasons related to the short sale, we had an extremely aggressive timeline for closing.  Irene told us she might not be able to make the assigned date, but she pulled everything together in time.  If it hadn’t been for a new law mandating a waiting period between the loan lock and final sign-off, we would have closed on the original date.  All went smoothly, however, since Mark had already negotiated with the bank for extra time in case we needed it.

Now we are planning a remodel of the house and are looking forward to mining Mark’s network and expertise to help us with that process.

Bottom line, we can’t recommend Mark strongly enough.  He has been fabulous to work with!

We met Mark when we were casually looking at properties.  He was showing a home in Sunnyvale and we were not ready to buy a home at the time but we asked him several questions about his impression of the current real estate market.  Mark’s response was insightful and honest (he told us that he suspected prices were still going to drop which turned out to be true).  We were impressed with his knowledge of the market and his professionalism.  So a year later when we were ready to buy a home we contacted him and we were not disappointed.  He listened to what we wanted in a home, answered all of our questions, and was prompt in scheduling appointments for the homes we wanted to see.  He also was great in referring us to a terrific mortgage broker, Irene Moustakas, and a very thorough home inspector, Michael Strom-Berg at Compass Home Inspections.  So the whole process of purchasing our first home went incredibly smoothly and we had a great experience.

Adam and Polly D., San Jose (Sherman Oaks)
“We spent our first night in our Goodwin Eichler house last Saturday, and I am now finally able to send you a proper thank you. I absolutely could not have gotten through this process without you. I know it’s a tad cliché to say, but you really did make buying a home not only straightforward and painless, but enjoyable as well.

Over the past few years, I had started the process of purchasing a house multiple times, but something always seemed off or I just flat out felt uncomfortable about the situation -our prior agent wouldn’t take any time explaining the steps or the other forces at play, much less take the time to put my mind at ease. That all changed the day you and I spoke at that Regal Court home. You and I have often talked about the importance of having a sense of urgency along with a sense of humor, and I was always grateful that you exemplify those qualities. I sincerely couldn’t be happier working with you and Maily.

Through the entire process, I really did feel I had the two best people out there. Even when there were a couple bumps in the road, there wasn’t a moment when I was worried, because I knew you were there to watch my back. Around the office and around my friends and family, for the past two months, everyone would be asking me why I wasn’t stressed out. And my response was always the same: If you met Mark, you would know why. So, though it’s long overdue, thank you for everything.”

Asif and Sumaiyya B., San Jose (Willow Glen)
“One day, during a routine house hunting trip, I stumbled upon the Sunnyvale Fairbrae Eichler neighborhood. Though I had read much about Eichlers in the past, I was very hesitant about their investment value and seemingly high-maintenance design. For some reason though, that day I couldn’t shake the feeling that only an Eichler could be my home.

Not knowing where to start my search, I turned to Google, which in turn led me to Mark’s website. After a brief conversation through comments on various listings, I decided to give Mark a call. Mark spent 10 minutes listening to me, a complete stranger, ramble on about my negative experiences with other homes and how I was terrified about the upkeep necessary when owning an Eichler. He then spent 45 minutes explaining to me, a complete stranger, how radiant heating worked and the Eichler philosophy.

This one anecdote illustrates many things about Mark’s working style. He’s accessible, understands and utilizes technology, and takes time and care to understand the needs of his clients?? His attention to detail is commendable, and his hospitality is something that I’ve seen very rarely in the real estate industry?(from my experience watching his miracle at Fairvalley Ct.), he, Sabrina, and their staging crew will transform your home into a place that any Eichler enthusiast would love to call home.”

Mark G, Santa Clara (Pomeroy West)
“We experienced great frustration during our home search. Finding a home that fit our needs and our budget proved to be quite challenging. Mark used his extensive network of contacts to find us an off-market property, one that suited us perfectly. He helped us negotiate a fair price and, when we faced the inevitable pre-closing hassles, he came up with a creative solution to ensure a smooth transition into our new home. I highly recommend Mark.”

Donna L., San Jose (Willow Glen)
“If you are looking for a top-notch Realtor who knows how to prep, market and sell your home – Mark is the guy! After listing my Eichler with one of the highest producing Realtor couples at Coldwell Banker (who relied more on their reputation than hard work and produced limited results) I decided to give Mark a try. He and his team did more in 1 week than my previous Realtors did in 6 months. They prepared my home to become an eye-catching, emotion-grabbing home that buyers just couldn’t turn away from. We were able to get a couple of solid offers after only 2 open houses! Mark definitely has passion and commitment for his work, and that’s how he was able to produce such great results in a short period of time… I would highly recommend him!”

Tiffany T., Sunnyvale

“It was a real pleasure to work with Mark. He has a very professional attitude and he inspires confidence without being pushy. At all times, he would find out your needs and try to find the best match that he could possibly find on the market at that time. He helped with the little things that make life so much easier, from remodeling advice to tax filing (even it was just one day before the due date! I will always remember that). To make a long great story short, he is the man you can rely on to deal with your home.”

“After 15 years in our home and the kids all moved out and on their own, what better time to start a new adventure. Mark and Sabrina made the selling process so easy and comforting for us. They have a superior first class marketing plan, organized and successful with selling our home in this tough market. Packing and moving can be very stressful and they were there for us from the very beginning to the end.”

“The MESH network team helped us locate the perfect home for our family.  Mark’s negotiating skills secured us a lovely home for a great price!  In this sometimes difficult market, we were glad to have someone experienced on our team.”

“I am so happy that I met you guys this year and with your help I purchased my first home.  Through our conversations, we discovered so many common interests, especially with Sabrina, though that’s a bit scary how many same things we both like. We became more than agents and client, we are friends now. I got to know you guys more and more beyond the surface. We get along so well because we hold similar values and standards, and yet we are very different in personality. With Mark’s sweetness, attention to details, Sabrina’s aggressiveness, you guys truly make a great team, and I have no doubt that you will be more and more successful in years to come.  Cheers to both of you and our friendship!

Mark O., San Jose

“I’ve been so busy moving in, I haven’t had a chance to properly thank you.  The thought of buying property has been on my mind for a few years, however, I’ve never connected with the right people to actually make it happen.  Your guidance and advice put everything in perspective for me and made the purchase decision a comfortable one. Throughout the process you managed everything brilliantly and I’m still impressed that every time you called me with a potential problem, you also had the solution.  I really don’t think I would have ended in up in such a great place without all your support. You’re invaluable!

If you ever need a recommendation, please let me know, I am more than happy to sing your praises to any prospective clients.  And given that I’m pointing all of my friends to you for all their real estate needs.”
