I have a passion for real estate and I enjoy helping people through the process of either buying a property or selling their home. My approach is open, honest and friendly and I like to establish a relationship with my clients early on.
Growing up and living in the Forrest Hill and Castor Bay area has given me an in-depth knowledge of the surroundings. It's such a central location, fantastic local and safe beaches, great shopping and handy to everything and anywhere that you look on the shore the schools are excellent.
Barfoot & Thompson is my company of choice - I like the brand because of its size, its professionalism, and the strength of its network maximises choices for both buyers and sellers.
Prior to real estate I was in world of corporate insurance operating internationally through the UK, USA and Asian markets. Good clear communication was a key aspect as it is in real estate and to give good advice, first you must listen to the clients' wants and needs. For some, the process of buying and selling homes can be daunting. I enjoy being able to use my knowledge and ability to assist people through this process making it easy and stress-free.
My family, that's my wife and twin daughters, love animals. We love guide dogs and for the past few years have trained and boarded guide dog pups. We continue to board the guide dogs as well as other pet dogs which means that we may have a different dog in the house every few days. Such fun! Before the dogs we had cats - everyone knows that you can't train cats. Apparently they are free spirits!
I look forward to being able to bring my energy and enthusiasm to help you. Call me for a confidential discussion about your real estate needs.
I used Mark as I needed my home to be listed very quickly as I had found a new place I wanted to buy so time was a necessity. I also needed to be able to rely on technical expertise and competence in everything that needed to happen to bring my home to market. Mark provided all of this in a seamless manner that I had confidence in the process and as stress free as possible. My home was on the market in four days and sold at auction shortly after for the price I wanted. Highly recommend Mark for his expertise, professional attitude, time he gave me and my listing, friendly approach.Stephanie
Mark is the complete professional along with being friendly and helpful, going the extra mile to make the real estate experience as smooth and easy as possible. I like the marketing model and overall professionalism of Barfoot & Thompson. This is the third time I have used Mark. He is a great support to me with all aspects of buying and selling.Karlabelle
I have just sold my house with Mark Caisley and found him lovely to deal with, in person, and with the selling of my property. Nothing was any bother and I felt very comfortable dealing with him. Thank you for helping me to get a sale on my house, been a wonderful outcome for which I am very grateful. Thank you Mark and good wishes for your future selling real estate.Sylvia
I bought a property through Mark and he was able to show me all the details I needed and in good time. He knew a lot about the street and the values which gave me confidence in working out where I wanted to be with price. He was able to give me confidence in the auction process and his after-sales service has continued to be helpful and friendly. Thanks MarkLester
Mark exceeded our expectations of a real estate agent. I was selling a deceased close family members house, he not only guided me through sales process but also the legal mine field at a very emotional time. Although it didn't sell at auction, in just over a week he brought 3 offers on the same day. Mark communicated by email or phone several times a week. He made a very difficult time less stressful. We thank him very much.Karen
This is the 2nd time I have used Mark and I highly recommend him. Just as the first home sale the process was seamless and easy for me with clear reasoned suggestions for all the actions. Best of all we were able to sell pre-auction and move on. Thanks Mark.Geoff
Thank you Mark for all your help. The whole process of the sale of my home was so quick, easy and stress free. The marketing was very good, and we achieved a price we were happy with in very good time. All the decisions we had to make were clearly explained with the options outlined simply. I highly recommend using Mark.Philippa
Mark, I just wanted to thank you for your help when I was looking for a property to buy. I felt you were helpful, answered my questions as well as you could and when you didn't know the answer you were honest to say so and the next day came back with answer. Also you were not pressuring me to make my decision. In all I feel my experience was good. Hope you have a great success in future.Anu
Mark did an excellent job of marketing our house and even got a backup deal which pushed the first purchasers over the line and stopped further attempts at negotiating. The sale process was smooth and happened seamlessly from staging, photos signs open homes and finally the sale. We were kept fully informed along the way and felt involved in the process. Would highly recommend using Mark to sell your home.Geoff July 2017
