My wife, Amy, and I have been dating since 2002, married since 2006 and renting together for over a decade. Our dream over that entire span was not just to live together for the rest of our lives, but live together for the rest of our lives in a true home we could proudly call our own.Mark Balestracci made that possible.Without him, to be quite honest, that dream would probably be exactly that: a fantasy of some sort, something we’d hope someday come true but never really do so.When we first met with Mark, we knew next to nothing about the process of buying a home. We had a vague idea, but it was Mark who carefully and thoroughly explained what was a very daunting experience.As the days, weeks and months wore on, Mark expertly walked us through the pros and cons, delicately letting us know if what we wanted would end up being the best decision or not, never pushing us in one direction or another.There were days where we got up together, saw four or five houses that we loved online but turned out to be duds. At times, we grew frustrated and at one point even took a break from seeing houses. All the while, Mark remained patient and supportive.And through those times where we felt helpless and like the search would never end, he listened. He absorbed what we were looking for through his honest dedication to finding a house in a search that brought him way outside of the geographical area he’d normally work in.Through that diligence to get to know not just our wishes, he entered into our dream with us. By the time our search nearly came to a close, he knew what we were looking for, even more than we did.Mark always said that we’d know we’d found our dream house the minute we stepped inside. When we visited 91 Leonard Street in North Attleboro, that’s exactly what happened. It came as no coincidence that it was a house Mark picked out for us.Thanks to Mark, we are now living our dream. His combination of hard work, communication skills and overall expertise made it a reality. On top of that, he’s just a good guy.Words can’t express how lucky we were to have Mark guide us through the process. He literally made our dreams come true. And for as personal a journey as it was for us, we feel like he could do that for anyone. He’s that good.My advice to any homebuyer would be to seek out Mark Balestracci. If we ever do this again, there’s no one else we’d go to.
As first time home buyers we were both excited and apprehensive. Mark explained every step of the process and regularly provided updates. With Mark’s guidance and expertise the home buying process was easy. He provided helpful advice about the different towns and neighborhoods, took us to see houses, guided us through the negotiation process and oversaw the inspection and closing. Mark was patient, knowledgeable and an absolute pleasure to work with. Thanks to Mark we love our new home and we recommend him to all our friends!
I just wanted to say how much I appreciate your help going through all of this, I certainly would have been lost otherwise. of course I won't hesitate to recommend you to friends and family if I hear of any who are in the market. it has been a pleasure, feel free to keep in touch and hopefully we'll do business again someday.
estate professional out there. We have been through
4 real estate agents prior to you.....they all said what they were going to
do - but didn't deliver.....your magic formula is
that you did everything you said you were going to do - always going the extra mile. Even within a very tough market - you sold our house. We cannot express how very pleased we are with the results and with the process. With great appreciation for everything you did for
The Balestracci Group of Re/Max Advantage 1 was by far the best group of real estate professionals that I have ever dealt with. I have been buying and selling real estate in Massachusetts for 25 years and have never come across a more dedicated and attentive realtor than Mark Balestracci. Mark understood my goals and objectives and worked with me to make sure they were met. Where Mark sets himself apart from other realtors is he is more concerned that his clients purchase the right property for their needs as opposed to just making a sale. Luckily, Mark was my realtor during a purchase that I had made wherein an unfavorable aspect of the water supply became evident the day before closing. Mark knew that I would not be happy with the property because of this and helped me to back out of the deal and immediately find a new property. As a result I am now the proud owner of another property the makes both financial and future resale sensibility. In my 25 years of buying and selling properties I have never come across any person or team that comes close to the skill set and knowledge as Mark and The Balestracci Group do.
others. Mark has been nothing but 100% professional and a true resource in
guiding me during my earlier days. He is honest, dedicated and sincere and
does what he says he's going to do. Mark spent over a 1.5 years in my first
search for an investment property. Most brokers would have left me after
the first few months of not making a commission! Mark likes what he does
and it shows. I've referred my parents and friends to him and will look to
Mark in the future when the need arises.
