My Reviews

We recently sold and purchased our homes using Jessica and the Mark Deering Team. We were in the situation where we found a home we really liked and made an offer but had two individual homes we would need to sell. There is a lot going on when you are in this situation. As we began this journey, I was a bit overwhelmed thinking about the whole process. Jessica quickly relieved my anxiety by stepping us through the process on each of the homes. Jessica is knowledgeable and EXTREMELY organized. She kept us posted on what she needed from us, when she needed it and gave us updates as we moved closer to the closing dates. I highly recommend Jessica and the whole Mark Deering Team! They took a daunting situation, simplified it and gave us a very happy ending. ~Diane Miller

The Deering Team was amazing! Mark didn’t skip a beat when we told him what we were looking for. He found us our dream home! Mark had our house listed within 24 hours of the process starting and sold it in 4 days so we could move forward with our forever home! Mike and Jessica helped us throughout the process as well. Jessica shared information throughout the process each week making things feel less stressful with the thought of moving and the details that it required. The process was so smooth with REMAX and The Mark Deering Team that it fell into place like a perfectly made puzzle. We had no hiccups along the way and our process was completed within 30 days! Closing was beautifully organized and I couldn’t be happier that we chose to work with The Deering Team! Communication was flawless and they always responded whenever I texted or called in a timely fashion! More than 10/10 Recommend!!!! ~Rebecca Lynema

I could not recommend the Deering team enough! The whole team did an amazing job with helping us find our forever home to selling the old home. Jessica did an amazing job with making sure we were up to date every week with what was going on! Mike was great when it came to helping us find our forever home! Mark was on top of it when it came to answering any questions we had and selling our house in less than a week so we did not lose out on the home we fell in love with! We can not thank you guys enough for all of your hard work! Highly recommend the Deering team! ~Sarah Delgado

The Deering Team did a great job of getting my brother's home sold. It was an 'as is' property, and I was concerned about it getting sold. Mark Deering and his crew got the job done and at a better price than I expected. Thanks to Jessica Kirkwood for keeping me up-to-date on events and requirements. Kudos to the Deering Team! ~Larry DeHaan

We sold our home with Mark Deering at Remax. Mark did a excellent job with starting with a video and continuing on to sell out house. Mark has great personality and is a go getter. He kept us updated on the moving of the house. From staging the house to the entire sale was great. I also have to say marks assistant was right on top of things. Jessica was wonderful to work with to. She emailed Gumer and I and texted almost every day to let us know what we had ti do and when. Mark Deering and Jessica are 2 wonderful people to work with, and we are very happy we sold our home to the Mark Deering Team at Remax. We would work with both of them again, great and very professional people. Thanks Mark Deering and Jessica Kirkwood. What a great team. ~Gumer and Denise Mancilla

Recently closed on a home with the help of Mike Bursley as buyer’s agent and Jessica Kirkwood as admin manager. The process was very smooth from start to finish. When we found a home I liked, Mike was on the phone with me until late that night to get an offer in under the wire. He was even able, despite the current competitive market, to negotiate sellers’ concessions to help with expected repairs on the home. When we had a roadblock with the appraisal (due to missing safety railings), he worked with the seller’s agent to get the railings installed as quickly as possible and the appraisal cleared. Throughout the whole process, Jessica was ready with helpful answers to my questions, and championed the mountain of paperwork involved in getting through all stages of the purchase contract. Thank you to the whole team for getting me into my new place! ~Drake Parker
