Mark O'Connell's Client Testimonials

"We have worked with Mark O'Connell for over two years from our first decision to move to the Nashville area until we actually found our home.  We've dealt with many realtors in the past and this, by far, was our best overall experience from Day 1. Once I first contacted Mark his 'customer service' was well above and beyond what we expected.  Any questions that my wife or I had, via email or phone calls, Mark always responded within a timely manner and never made us feel like we were bothering him or wasting his time.  Mark has made it feel like we have been working with a long time friend since our first encounter.

With me working overseas and with us living in another state while trying to find a new home, he always made time for us when we would blow into town for only a few days and would help accommodate our needs as best he could and maximize our time so that we could both look at potential homes, as well as, learn and enjoy the area as a family.  He not only showed us houses but he also helped us get familiar with the whole area and the more we discovered, the more we fell in love with the area, which helped making the decision to move a lot less stressful.  We covered every angle possible from renting to buying to building.  Mark helped us an any way that we asked, if we wanted to look in a different areas, or styles/sizes of houses or amounts of land, he never discouraged us from trying different avenues he provided as much information as he could to help us make the most educated decisions that we could and helped us see everything about the area and not just the house.

Mark made the whole process seem almost effortless and easy, from finding the home up until we finally closed.  During this whole process he has helped make us feel like we already have friends and acquaintances in the area.  In the future, we will be sure and recommend Mark to anyone that we know needs a great realtor and we will use him again as well for any and all of our real estate needs." - Josh

"All real-estate agents are good friendly people or they do not last. Mark was everything you expect and his knowledge of the current market was what really set him apart. He provided great advice but always left the decisions to us. I expected to deal with someone who would push for the quick decision since we were looking in a lower price range but Mark was patient and worked to find us the right place. Purely Mark was truly outstanding." - Eldon Franks

"Mark has been wonderful to work with. He has handled several real estate transactions for our family and we've been very happy with the results of each one. He knows the business well and has never been difficult to contact about new or ongoing projects." - Melanie

"Thanks Mark! I found that you were excellent with communication and responding in very good time to our concerns and questions. You did a lot of work for us before you even knew if we were going to use your services for our purchase. You have great perspective on the area, since you also were newer and a "transplant" like ourselves. I was grateful for your concern and thoughtfulness in our conversations and your desire to do well for us. Thanks and God bless you!" - Megan N.

"I couldn't have been happier about my choice of Mark as our agent when we moved from New Jersey to the Nashville area. He started going the extra mile for us even when we were still in New Jersey getting ready to move. In one case, he went out to a house we were interested in, took pictures of the place on his cellphone and sent them to us. Even before we arrived we had a list from him with pictures of houses we wanted to see. He showed us a lot of houses in the month we were looking and was always patient with us. We never felt pressured or pushed to make a decision. In the end, we got an amazing place, at the right price and have been living happily ever after. If we needed any advice, he was knowledgeable and helpful without being pushy. I hope I never go through this process again, but if I have to I'll call on Mark" – Keith J.

"Mark, Just wanted to drop you a note to Thank You for all of your help in making my purchase go smoothly. Your positive attitude and real estate knowledge is much appreciated, along with your Irish sense of humor!"  - Mike F.

“Mark is an experienced and dedicated professional who actually listened to what I wanted and then worked with me to find and secure the perfect home.  He was consistently responsive, knowledgable, and supportive through the entire process.” - B.J. 

"I can't say enough good things about having Mark as my realtor. He was everything you expect and his knowledge of the current market was what really set him apart. He also stuck by my side for two years until I found the place I was looking for. I expected to deal with someone who would push for the quick decision since I was looking in a lower price range, but Mark was patient and helped me find the right place. 

"Mark has been wonderful to work with. The process could not have flowed any smoother. He also had so many great references and contacts which made the entire process clean and simple. He knows the business well and has always been available and dependable when I needed something. If I had to do it all over again, I'd undoubtedly call Mark." - Erin W.

"My experience with Mark O'Connell was a very swift and painless experience. Knowing that I was very limited in the amount of time that I had to find a home, Mark was very attentive to my needs. He worked very hard to develop a short list of homes that were both in my price range and desired area. When it was all said and done, I found the perfect home in my desired area and closed within a month." - Jayson

“Being the sole decision maker and newer to the Nashville Market, I knew I would need to rely on the expertise of a Realtor in helping me find the best house.  Fortunately, I had the opportunity to work with Mark, who is very knowledgeable in both the market as well as resources that could aid in making the transition from renting to buying a lot easier.  He was able to provide insight and ask questions that helped me as I was making my decision.  He also negotiated hard to ensure I was able to get the best possible deal and was very involved through the entire process.  I never had to worry about where I stood which is extremely helpful when you’re are in the middle of the highly stressful home buying process.  I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to make a purchase.” - Kari


"I would recommend Mark to anyone in the Nashville market without a second's hesitation.He has all of the traits you'd want in someone to whom you entrust such a major responsibility: he's persistent, smart, knowledgeable about the market, deeply loyal to his clients, and easy to work with. He provides all the guidance you need to feel comfortable with your deal without ever becoming overbearing or making you feel as if he's trying to take over the process. Thanks to Mark, I'll probably never have to use another real estate agent again — because his tenacity, patience, and insight managed to land me in my dream house! If I did have to get back in the market, however, he'd be the first person I called. If you're working with real estate in Nashville, you should do precisely the same thing." - Troy
"I was hesitant to work with a real estate agent because I’d heard stories about agents who insist on viewing properties that obviously don’t match your criteria or who don’t end up advocating for you when it comes to the final deal.  But the fast turn-around time of the Nashville real estate market and the limited amount of time I had to devote to searching for properties necessitated working with a home-buying expert.  Within hours of contacting Mark, I had a list of potential properties all of which matched requirements for location and number of bedrooms.  Within a few days, we were viewing properties.  Not only was Mark prompt in all of our transactions, but he was my advocate throughout the entire process, recognizing immediately when I felt that a property was not a good fit so we didn’t waste our time looking and serving as the contact person for all parties, making my interests a priority.  Finally, as a first-time home buyer, Mark took time to walk me through the contracts and educate me about the process.  I’m glad I made the decision to work with Mark!" - Maria Santa
