“I can’t thank Mark enough for making the process of selling our house a positive and stress free one. His expertise in the field, dedication to our needs, attention to details and knowledge of the Stonehaven community was invaluable in deciding on the perfect strategy when marketing our home in order to garner the interest and attention that would result in a successful sale. His marketing skills, virtual tour photos and video far exceeded our expectations. We were extremely pleased with the professional and organized service that the Royal Lepage administration staff provided.
Mark is the consummate real estate professional. He masterfully negotiated the best offer for our property which was above and beyond what other homes similar to ours have recently sold for. I highly recommend Mark to anyone considering the sale or purchase of a home.”

“My husband and I recently decided to downsize as our kids were nearing adulthood. As the decision to move was a bit impulsive, we did not have a good sense of what we wanted from the sale of our existing home nor the purchase of our new home. To add to the complexity, my husband and I have completely different views / tastes and are known for being demanding and controlling. This creates a challenge for any real-estate agent.
With this in mind, we needed an agent that was highly experienced, had a thorough knowledge of the local market, and had a very patient and astute demeanor. Luckily we found all these traits in Mark Risi!
Mark was aggressive yet realistic when pricing our house resulting in competing offers and a sale price higher than any house had ever sold in Stonehaven. He was tough and logical during the negotiation process ensuring that emotions didn’t get in the way of the best deal possible.
As for the purchase of our new home, Mark was able to translate our ramblings into clear requirements, which led to the purchase of the perfect home in a community that satisfied our (sometimes contradictory) social, business and family needs. He had to, at many times, act as a mediator when we couldn’t reach consensus on our own.
I’m glad to say that what we expected to be a stressful and overwhelming experience, ended up being fun and insightful. I believe that this was primarily due to the type of agent and person that Mark is.
Thank you Mark for a great experience and feel free to use me anytime as a reference.”
