Testimonials"Marcus, It was a pleasure working with you to purchase our condo. All went smoothly (and fast) considering the distances involved. We very much appreciated your video of the unit. It allowed us to make the offer with more confidence. We will certainly recommend your services in the future."
R. Welch, May 2009, Canada.
"Whilst looking for a property in Orlando we contacted Condo Metropolis. Marcus was extremely helpful and gave us information on all the areas we were interested in and arranged viewings. He was also a great help at assisting with the US/UK terminology translations!! Although we were familiar with the US and the area, his help and advice was invaluable regarding the finer details. He also provided useful knowledge on international mortgages. I would highly recommend him, and when we intend to purchase another property in the future - our first stop will be Marcus."
A. Sinton-Gerry, June 2009, U.K.
"...It might seem like it would be difficult to purchase our first investment property when we live in Missouri, but Marcus made it easy. He responded almost immediately to my e-mails and quickly and professionally answered all our inexperienced questions. Since the market was moving quickly, we took his advice on offers and properties. It turns out that our trust was well founded, and in less than two weeks, we had an offer pending on a perfect property for us. If we were going to buy another property or sell our existing one, we would definitely contact Marcus.
... It can be intimidating to trust someone that you’ve never met, but our experience was only positive."
Randy and Gina Bacus, August 2009, Missouri.
