Get to know Mark Bruno

40 year Monterey Peninsula real estate veteran Lynda Nichols has crafted a team of local real estate professionals designed to compliment each other's strengths and more importantly offer their clients unparalleled professional real estate services with a small town personal touch. The combination of an experienced long standing real estate professional, a internet savvy 14 year corporate sales and marketing manager and a full time client care manager brings more to the table when it comes time to prepare your home for sale and expose it to thousands of potential buyers. After all, there are only two reasons your house doesn't sell, either the price is too high or it didn't receive enough exposure to find the right buyer.

Whether looking for your primary residence or a weekend hideaway from the hustle and bustle of the bay area, Lynda's team is well prepared to find you the perfect home that meets both your emotional and physical needs as well as your financial requirements.

Please call, email or stop by our office at 501 Lighthouse Avenue in Pacific Grove and ask for Lynda, Mark, Jeff or Teresa to experience all we have to offer to you during the process of buying or selling your next home.

Certifications

There are two areas we like to think we excel in that allow us to better serve our clients. We are exceptional listeners and we are extremely good at marketing your home.

Lynda has 40 years of local Monterey Peninsula real estate experience! Over the years she has continually performed in the top 5% of all realtors in the business and has earned the long term loyalty of her clients. You do not become a long term success in this business without being able to listen to your clients needs, whether they are buyers or sellers, and deliver on their wants and needs.

Mark honed his listening skills while working in the corporate world for 14 yeas prior to taking up real estate. He worked in the mobile electronics field as a product development team leader, a regional sales manager, national sales manager and a managing director in a public company. He managed over 150 sales people in the field all over the country as well as drove product development teams all over the globe. This experience has given him the tools necessary to negotiate on his clients behalf and deliver their wants and needs time and time again.

From a marketing standpoint, we like to stand out from the crowd with exceptional photography and cutting edge video productions of our listings. We take all of our own photography. This allows us to come back on the right day to capture each home in its best light. It is not uncommon for us to visit a home three or four times just to capture the right lighting to get the shot we want. Compare that to a photographer that is hired to take 9 quality photos and makes an appointment at 12:00 noon. If its foggy that day, guess what...you get gloomy, dark pictures. The weather on the Monterey Peninsula is truly unpredictable. There are dozens of micro climates and catching a property at the right time is as much luck as it is skill. You always have to go back more than once!

We recognize that almost every buyer for one of our listings in the past three years learned about the property they ended up purchasing online before they ever spoke to their real estate agent. We like to give this buyer every bit of information possible in order to get them comfortable enough with our listings to want to make the next step and see it in person. We load as many pictures as neccessary to tell the story of a property and most of the time dedicate an entire custom website to that property, again with a real video production of it.

Testimonials for Mark Bruno

    Mark Bruno and the Monterey Peninsula Home Team are the best! We had a tight time frame to purchase a home on a weekend. Mark had set up all the appointments in a timely manner and we worked like crazy on day one to get in 12 houses! We made an offer at the end of the first day but it fell through, needless to say by day two we had a home! Throughout the process Mark was informative, professional, friendly and helpful going over and above expectations. He and his wifeTeresa (also works for Monterey Peninsula Home Team) are so nice we consider them friends for life.

    I highly recommend Mark and everyone at Monterey Peninsula Home Team. Although timing is important, Mark was able to find us our home very quickly. He understood our requirements and worked with us to find our home and we’ve been looking for over 4 years. I’m finally in a home and making upgrades to my own home and not to some rental! Thanks!

    We highly recommend the Monterey team. Lynda and Jeff were very personable with us. They sold a complicated property in Carmel and made in seem easy. They sold it in a timely manor for a fair price.
    Great job!
    Thanks again

    Anthony Davi and his team helped us close on a very complex and lengthy short sale home. Although it had several issues, we moved forward and could not be happier. Anthony worked hard, long and expertly on our purchase and we are very appreciative that we had such a great guy to work with.

    I serve as a federal bankruptcy trustee for the U.S. Department of Justice. Recently, your firm assisted us in the liquidation of a house that was an asset of a bankrupt estate. We are very grateful for the significant attention and effort that Jeff Davi, Teresa Bruno, and your staff expended to complete the sale. They were professional and conscientious and kept us continually updated as to the progress of the sale. We will be using them again because they produced a superior result.

    Thanks to Mark Bruno, we just celebrated our first year anniversary of owning our home in Pebble Beach. We looked for quite some time and Mark came to know exactly what we were looking for and found just the right home for us. We weren't living in the area, so he made sure that when we did come over he had plenty of options to look at and also helped make the closing process go smoothly. I would definitely recommend Mark and his team to help find your home!

    Lynda, Teresa and Mark,

    I wanted to thank you all so much for all you did to help make the transition of selling Pat's house seamless. You guys went over and above what I could have ever expected and I will be forever grateful for your professionalism, work ethic and compassion. You all made what was a tough situation so much easier. The piece of mind I had knowing that you were always there and willing to roll up your sleeve's to get done whatever had to be done was priceless. I knew you all had our best interest at heart. That meant the world to me, especially being out of the state.

    What I didn't expect out of all of this would be the wonderful friendships I have gained along the way. A beautiful rainbow at the end of a shower......

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!

    Much respect and gratitude,

    Judy Price
