There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional - integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work.
That said, in my six years of experience as a successful Real Estate Professional, I've found that providing the very best service is essentially putting my clients first. This means staying accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.
I am passionate about customer service, it is the foundation in which I build upon each and everyday

Both my husband and I would like to thank you for the outstanding job you've done finding us our first home. If it were not for your expertise and patience, we would not own the beautiful home we own today. Our circumstances were difficult, but you found a way to not only get us to the settlement table but you got us a amazing deal on a home we never thought we would be able to buy at that time. Once again we appreciate your hard work. As long as your in the business we will turn to you for our real estate needs.
I contracted with two different real estate agents in the two years my house was on the market for sale. Both agents were among the top at their agencies with a combined thirty years experience. I was becoming very discouraged that my house remained unsold after almost two years.
I contracted with Marcus James to handle the task of selling my house. Marcus immediately suggested that I make several minor changes and improvements. After some hesitancy on my part, I did make the changes he suggested.
Marcus was communicating with me every step of the way on the activity leading to the sale of my house. This was most comforting to me since winter was approaching. I did not want to approach the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays with the house unsold.
Marcus found a buyer for my house in just one week. The settlement date was scheduled within two weeks of the contract signing. There was a problem that occured at settlement that would have cost me additional funds. Marcus resolved this issue to the satisfaction of all parties and the settlement continued without any additional concerns.
Marcus James possesses a thorough knowledge of the real estate market in the Maryland area. It was this knowledge and his competence in the areas of financing, comparable housing and his friendly disposition that resulted in such a quick sale. I was most satisfied with Marcus James and you will be also

Thank you for all your help, from your patience, expertise and your commitment to your professionalism in making it all happen. We wouldn't have had such a fulfilling experience finding a house if it weren't for you. You helped us find an amazing house and we are very happy with it. Who would have ever thought that the moment would come where we would be buying a house? We are eternally grateful and thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts for all that you've done. You were there everyday reassuring us that things will go our way and they did. We wish you continued success and you are highly recommended to anyone we know that is looking to buy or sell a home. Once again, thank you so much.
I began searching for my home one year prior to the purchase of my new home. I began my home search with a different agent who proceeded to show me homes he thought I should live in. After leaving this agent, I began searching for homes on my own. I would search the different websites for homes in my price range and drive around to the different areas I was interested in and write down the agent name and phone number to scheduled appointments. I was blessed to find a house Marcus had listed for sale. Although that particular house did not serve my needs. Mr. James took me to see four different houses the day we met and all were perfect for me. With so many choices available to me now, I became a bit indecisive and Marcus patiently took me back and forth to each house as many times as I requested. He was very nice throughout the entire experience and worked with my best interests in mind. I am now in my dream home thanks to Mr. James.
