Treats you like family

This is my second home purchased and first home sold through Mark and his team. The team really treats you like family. They are so efficient and very helpful. They will take the stress away from buying/selling your home. We are very happy with our new home. I was actually joking with Amy about buying another property next year, who knows! They also stay in touch even if you are not in the real estate market. We love you guys!

— Oliver and Joey Dujua, Buyer and Seller

Mark is a resource

I sold two houses with Mark and bought two with Mark and his team. He is all in with expertise and service. He even came over last minute at the end of the work day to help me pack up my remaining possessions so I could vacate my former property on time. Mark is a resource for life with recommendations for trades and professionals for all your needs. He truly defines the term Service Professional. Oh, and don't tell him I think he was right when he suggested my initial sales price should be a little lower to attract more interest up front. :)

— Nancy Kinsely, Buyer and Seller

Helped us prepare our house for sale

Mark Adams helped us buy our first home in 2002, so we went with him when were looking to move in 2019. We gave him the parameters we were looking for and he had Amy Baker looking for houses for us. She endured many house searches and viewings before we found our house. Mark and his assistant provided a list of contractors that helped us prepare our house for sale and Mark's wife, Lisa helped us greatly in the photography. Our house sold on the first weekend it was on the market and for above the asking price. They helped us with the inspections and negotiations. If you are looking for a realtor, Mark and his team are the people to see.

— Mykl Egan, Buyer and Seller

Easy to work with

They were very easy to work with and explained everything in manner we could understand. They kept us advised of every step as soon as they knew something. Great job!

— Laura Givens, Seller

He listened to us

Mark Adams and his excellent team assisted us in selling two properties. From the beginning we were impressed with Mark’s knowledge and professionalism. He listened to us and understood our parameters, throughout the process, for selling the properties. We actually felt as if we were members of his team. Mark, Lisa and Chloe were very responsive. We knew that a text, email or call would get an immediate response. We highly recommend Mark Adams.

— Gary Hendron, Seller

Treated us like we mattered

Mark and his staff are so professional and yet treated us like we "mattered". We trusted them fully to handle our sale, and they did a great job!

They looked out for our better judgment

We truly enjoyed working with Mark Adams and Associates! From start to finish everything was made very simple, easy and fast. We started house hunting with Amy in January and closed on our new home in March. We were able to even switch our lending company and went with a much better option. I totally feel as if they looked out for our better judgment. Amy was completely honest and saved us from buying the wrong house. Fast forward to living in our home they have even made recommendations to help us make changes to our house! Thank you guys so much for all your care and hard work!!

— Michael and Shay McClean, First time homebuyer

He made my job easy

From day 1 to the very last day, the entire staff (especially Mark Adams) walked me through every step to help me sell my Mom's house to include overseeing the contractors that were needed to make repairs. He made my job easy 'cause I could leave all the work to Mark and count it as done. Truly a pleasure to work with and would most certainly, without hesitation, use his services again. Truly the definition of second to none. Excellent job!!!

— Gwendolyn Carney, Seller

Valuable guidance

Mark Adams & Associates are a great team and that is what we needed to downsize our home. My wife and I have relied on Mark and team for transactions with five different homes. Our most recent experience was to downsize our home after most of our kids have grown and they helped us with both sides of the transaction. Amy helped us with buying a newly construction home where we wanted a good deal and make sure we got what we were paying for. Mark helped us price our Montpelier home for sale and we worked through selling in the winter a home that needed maintenance, was in a remote location, and had unique design. Mark's guidance helped us know how to best sell the home and we were able to get it sold just before the COVID-19 Pandemic hit. The team helped us work through complicated situations and found us other help as needed to complete the transaction. It was a stressful situation for sure and the entire team was supportive and was always available with valuable guidance. They also kept us well organized with all the different aspects of both sides or the process. Thank you Mark Adams & Associates for all you have done to get us settled in a new home we are happy to be quarantined in. Without you we could never have kept our jobs and our sanity while managing this complicated time. Hoping we do not need you again soon but confident if we do you will be there to help us again.

— Toby Shea, Buyer and Seller

Incredible!

Mark Adams and his team are incredible! No one likes the process of selling their home but they made it as painless as possible. They gave me a list of things to do that they thought would make my house more attractive to buyers. There was no pressure. They said I could choose to do the items or sell as-is. They were simply offering their opinion based on their many years of selling homes. I chose to make most of the changes/updates they suggested and my house sold for over asking price in one weekend! I would definitely use Mark Adams and Associates again and I would highly recommend them to anyone!

— Cindy Gagnon, Seller

Wonderful experience

Mark was excellent to work with from being to end. And very patient with us. We are data driven people and Mark provided exactly the information we needed to make an informed decision regarding timing and pricing of our home. He walked our home room by room and provided the necessary advice we needed to prep our home. He kept us in the loop throughout the entire process. Mark priced our home perfectly to where we had many showings the first day (Saturday) it was on the market. Come Monday morning we had two competing offers over asking price. We have closed on that home and Mark continues to be a valuable asset with recommendations for local companies to asset with work we need done on our new home. And he continues to stay in touch with his clients with various client activities. Wonderful experience and hopefully we won't have to do it again anytime soon but if so - we'll definitely be calling Mark!

— Cary Irvine, Buyer and Seller

Amy was very helpful

I worked with Amy Baker from the team and she was very helpful and went above and beyond my expectations! She worked hard to find a house I would like and scheduled multiple showings that worked with my schedule. She made sure the deal happened and went smoothly despite some unexpected turns along the way. She was able to refer me to great people in the local area to help out with all aspects of the deal. I would highly recommend both Amy and the Mark Adams real estate team!

— A. Phanse, Buyer

Wonderful to work with

Mark Adams was wonderful to work with. Very kind and easy to work with. They communicated very well and were easy to get in touch with. They know the ins and outs of the process and will advocate to get the most out of your home. They were efficient and make signing paperwork so easy by using e-signing. We bought our home with them, then sold it 5 year later with them. If we have the pleasure or returning to Richmond, we will undoubtedly use him again.

— Nathalie Stefanski, Seller

Above and Beyond

Mark and his team went above and beyond expectations on the whole process from beginning to closing. Always available for any questions we had. We live in SC and Mark took care of everything that needed to be done, contractors etc.

— Ron Reasoner, Seller

WONDERFUL Experience

I had a WONDERFUL experience with the Mark Adams Team selling my condo. They were attentive, communicative and thorough. I highly recommend them and look forward to working with them in the future.

— Paula G., Seller

Fabulous to work with!

Fabulous to work with! Mark has a unique ability to understand how difficult it can be for seniors to buy and sell a home they have been in for over 25 years! His team made the entire process painless. I highly recommend Mark Adams and his team!

— Donna Anderson, Seller and Buyer

First time home buying

Mark Adams’ team was great to work with! Amy Baker was the best realtor we could have asked for. They made our first-time home buying experience a great one!

— Austin Cundiff, Buyer

Strongly recommend

Mark and his team are truly exceptional. He has sold two houses for me 15 years apart and I cannot think of anything that could have been done better. In addition to getting results quickly, their strengths are integrity, friendly and responsive customer service, deep knowledge and understanding of the Richmond market, and a number of trusted skilled contractors he can draw upon to fix or repair any issues quickly. My last house had an array of challenges to be addressed. Mark helped us identify how our limited funds were best used to get the house ready, and his contractors all did their jobs in a short time frame to help us get it ready for market. His team’s marketing was spot on, and together we discussed how to use the website analytics in deciding how to adjust our approach. We had an offer within days of this. Lisa and Annmarie rounded out a team that was friendly, responsive and most of all, extremely effective. I would strongly recommend Mark Adams and Associates to anyone looking to sell their home in the Richmond market.

— David Keller, Multiple times selling

Great Experience

Working with Mark and his team was a great experience. They were all very responsive and knowledgeable. They kept me up to date and helped make the process smooth.

— Susan Siegel, Seller and Buyer

This move couldn’t have been better!

I had an outstanding experience working with Amy on the purchase of a new home. This was part of a long-distance relocation for me, and Amy was wonderful in accommodating all of my last minute schedule changes, working with me to refine search criteria and view great properties, and then in helping me coordinate logistics with other vendors for upgrade work. This move couldn't have been better and it is all because of Amy's work, knowledge, and willingness to help with a million details to make is a great move.

— Michael Fitch, Buyer

My Best Move Yet!

Mark Adam's and team are the best. This was my 6th move and my best move, Thank you Mark, Lisa, and the whole team. An A+.

— Mike McClary, Seller

I would highly recommend Mark Adams and Associates

Mark and all the people in his office were extremely professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. They gave me advice on prepping my home for sale and provided me with names of a plumber, painters, a flooring company, and a handyman who were all efficient, helpful, and reasonably priced. I would highly recommend Mark Adams and Associates to friends and family

— Sara Young, Home Seller

Fun team with a wealth of local knowledge!

Mark’s team did a wonderful job being available from start to finish. Grateful for their ability to troubleshoot issues & connect us with great vendors before, during & after the sale. They focused on the details so we could make the best decisions. Fun team with a wealth of local knowledge! Highly recommend them for both buying and selling!

— Emily Malizia, Home Buyer

You can trust the Adams Team

You can trust the Adams Team all of the way from start to finish. They got us through some bumpy roads and this whole process took about a year. No one cried, tripped up, and there was no yelling and screaming at all. Great job and a "high 5" for the Adams team! Keep up the great work.

— Mark Herro, Home Seller

Amy Baker worked overtime on our behalf

Amy Baker worked overtime on our behalf. We are from outside the area and needed to find a home in two days. She guided us through the unique neighborhoods of Glen Allen and Ashland. We saw over 25 homes until we decided on our favorite. She also worked very hard on the negotiations once we decided on the house. Amy gave us a great introduction to Richmond. We are excited to start our journey in the community.

— R. Keller, Home Buyer

Very Efficient Team

The whole team was very efficient and never had to wait for anything. Even though buying a home can be difficult, our experience was very smooth thanks to the knowledge and know how of Mark Adams team!

— Debra Brocco, Home Buyer

Amy exhibited a great understanding of the local housing market

After being highly referred to us by friends, we worked with Amy Baker, an associate of Mark Adams, who showed us about 10 homes until we decided to put an offer in on our current home. From the beginning, Amy’s high level of home expertise stood out to us. Having deep roots in Richmond, Amy exhibited a great understanding of the local housing market. My husband, who works as a market analyst, is very detail-oriented and analytical; after working with realtors in the past that were not, it was refreshing to find that Amy answered all of his questions, concerns, and housing market questions in great detail and in a timely manner. I was surprised how different our realtor experience was from the last time we searched for a home together. Amy was patient and sent us listings that suited both our needs. When we finally wanted to make an offer on a home, Amy crafted the perfect contract. We competed with one other offer and per the selling agent, the homeowners chose our offer without question, because though the prices offered were similar, our contract was markedly better. We are very thankful to Amy for helping us find our new home-she is the best!

— Hannah Robertson, Buyer

Mark and his team were very helpful

Mark and his team were very helpful through the sale and purchase of my homes in 2018. Both transactions went very smoothly. I will work with Mark again in the future.

— Mike Smith, Buyer and Seller

Mark truly went above and beyond

I worked with Mark Adams to sell my house in the Museum District in Richmond, VA. Mark and his team were very helpful in each step of the process. They provided guidance on how which repairs would be the most important for potential buyers to see and which repairs we should leave for the inspection. They gave excellent guidance on the best way to stage our house using the furniture we already had. The team also helped us decide on a listing price to maximize our sales price but also to move the house quickly. It was a truly easy process. You might say 'well, the housing market is hot and anyone can sell a house.' That might be true; however, post-inspection and less than a week before closing, we ran into a big issue w/a leak in the roof given the record amounts of rain we've had recently. Unfortunately, I was out of town for much of that week, so Mark handled everything for us - he went over to the house and laid plastic down to prevent further water damage, he scheduled the contractors to find and fix the leak, and repair the interior. He was also there w/the contractors to ensure a quality job was done in a timely process. He also was very re-assuring that we'd make it work and get the sale closed. I can't speak highly enough of Mark's efforts during this moment of panic. He truly went above and beyond.

— Micheal Robertson, Home Buyer and Seller

Amy was 100% dedicated to helping us find the perfect home!

Amy was 100% dedicated to helping us find the perfect home! We nicknamed her the "blood hound" because she could detect smoke, mold, pet stains, poor workmanship almost instantly. She is savvy and a smart negotiator and has good relationships with vendors and seller's Realtors in the area. We recommend her to everyone who is looking for their next home!

— Rochelle Mills, Buyer

We have used them over the years

Mark and his team are always great to work with. They are very knowledgeable and great with helping with any questions or concerns you had. We have used them to help buy and sell our homes over the years. I highly recommended them!!

— Mei Lee, Buyer and Seller

Amy was the epitome of an outstanding agent.

Amy Baker helped us with finding our dream home. Every step of the way, Amy was responsive, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with. If I called and she didn't answer, I had a text message within seconds letting me know that she will get back to me ASAP. From the first house that we saw, to signing the closing paperwork, Amy was the epitome of an outstanding agent. Mr. Adams is truly lucky to have her as a part of his team. Thanks Amy.

— Mark Armentrout, Buyer

Highly likely to recommend!

Amy was fantastic in helping us get our first home. She listened to what we wanted, answered every question we have, and is always pleasurable to deal with. We were a little picky and took quite some time to find the right house, but Amy never pressured us to make a decision. When we found the right house, she helped us close and got us move in less than a month. She's better than amazing and we'll definitely call her again when we need to list or buy another house!

— Anonymous, Home Buyer

Sold my home in no time.

Working with Mark Adams has been great. Mark is very knowledgeable and sold my home in no time. He and his team really went out of their way to help me during this stressful time!

— Brian Rogers, Seller

We never felt pressured to make any decisions

Mark walked my wife and I through the process of searching for our first home together. He was extremely knowledgeable, helpful and very detail oriented. He also helped us separate emotions from logic during each visit in a respectful manner, and we never felt pressured to make any decisions we weren't ready for. We will absolutely continue to use Mark Adams for all of our real estate needs!

— Johnny, 1st Time Homebuyer

Mark, Lisa, and Amy are a wonderful team…

We bought our first home with Mark’s associate, Amy Baker. Amy was an invaluable asset to us in finding our home. She is knowledgeable, professional, and always courteous. She went above and beyond to help us virtually walk-through a home when we couldn’t travel to be there in person. She had helpful advice throughout the entire process and answered our questions promptly and thoroughly. After the sale she gave us helpful recommendations for home repairs. Mark, Lisa, and Amy are a wonderful team to work with and I highly recommend them.

— Alison Kelly, Buyer client

Mark will go above and beyond

Mark will go above and beyond to help his clients in almost any way that he can. He is honest and trustworthy. You can rely on him to tell you like it is…even when you don’t want to hear it. If there is something he doesn’t know, he’s been in the area long enough that he’s usually able to find out quickly. He’s got local resources and contacts that are always willing to help him. He has a team supporting him with the same skill sets. He surrounds himself with people who are willing to work hard and make sure the clients are satisfied. I would never recommend anyone other than Mark and Mark Adams & Associates for all your real estate needs.

— Sue DeMaria, Buyer client

Finest group of real estate professionals

The Mark Adams Team are the finest group of real estate professionals in the greater Richmond area. They set realistic expectations and then work diligently to achieve the best outcome possible. There is never any doubt about who they are working for. We have referred them many times to friends and family and would not consider using another realty team, should we need one in the future. They are just simply the BEST.

— Connie Beekman, Seller Client

Top notch service and responsiveness!

Very personal and professional manner.

Mark Adams and Associates were truly awesome. As a first time home buyer, they helped through every step of the process in a very personal and professional manner. I would highly recommend them, and more specifically Amy Baker, for anyone going through the crazy process that is home buying.

— Matt Grunwald, Buyer Client

I really enjoyed the process

Working with Mark and his team was so easy! I was fully prepared to be completely stressed out as a first time home buyer, but actually I really enjoyed the process. I felt like he and his team not only knew the market and the area well, they worked hard to work with my needs and my wish list. Start to finish, the whole process was much easier than I expected. I've already recommended him to friends for their own home searches.

— Morgan Halverson, Buyer Client

Extremely helpful, diligent and responsive!

We greatly appreciated Mark Adams & Associates during the purchase of our new (and first) home! All were wonderful partners - extremely helpful, diligent and responsive!

— Kimberly Lord, Buyer Client

We would not have survived the buying process without them!!!

We had a specific type of home/property that we were looking for. Mark Adams and his team not only found the ideal property IN our price range, but helped us through all of the processes along the way, with sincerity and honesty. We would not have survived the buying process without them!!! It's been five years and we couldn't be happier! We will definitely reach out to them whenever we need assistance in the future.

— Judi Tilley, Buyer Client

Great team.

Mark and Lisa are a great team. They made the purchase and sale of the home and property such an easy experience. would recommend them to everyone in the Richmond area purchasing a home.

— James Bowler, Buyer Client

Mark and his team truly value their clients

We bought a house with one of Mark’s team members (Amy Baker). Amy was fabulous in helping us find and buy our home while we were still living out of state (and i was nine months pregnant!). She helped helped us every step of the way. Not only did she help us find a wonderful house in our desired neighborhood, school system, & price, but she continued to check in on us to make sure we had everything we needed to make us feel like we were finally “at home.” Mark checks in on us periodically to make sure we are happy & he also offers guidance & recommendations on the best people to help us with any home maintenance needs. Mark & his team truly value their clients & continue to thank us for our business with regular appreciation events.Highly recommend!

— Jamie Bittner, Buyer

Their service is outstanding!

Even though I have never used them personally to purchase or sell a home, I have heard nothing but good things from those who I have referred to them. Their service is outstanding and they will go out of their way to make your experience memorable. I refer all of our incoming residents to them who are new to Richmond and they take wonderful care of them!

— Amber Cox, Referrer

He had our best interests at heart

Mark and his team were absolutely fabulous to work with. They were quick to address our questions and concerns and made our home buying a seamless experience. When working with Mark we really got the feeling that he had our best interests at heart, and we were confident that when the time came he would fight to get us what we needed for the close. They were also very flexible about quickly adjusting our parameters, and scheduling walk-throughs as quickly as possible so we never had to worry about losing out. As first time home buyers Mark was also invaluable at answering the million questions we threw at him and providing us with the right amount of confidence to help us make our decision. Honestly, with his help we were able to find the perfect house, and I 100% recommend hiring him and his team.

— Crixell Matthews

We never felt pressured to buy

We had moved across the country and had no idea where to buy a home. We were referred to Mark Adams office and are so happy. We felt our needs were taken care of the service was beyond what we thought working with agents would be like. We never felt pressured to buy and always had quick responses to questions. We have referred the office to others and will continue to do so! We will use them for our next home in the a few years hopefully.

— Michelle Alder, Buyer

I would definitely recommend him

Mark and his office was great to work with. Very responsive, knowledgeable and friendly. We had to work with a very difficult buyer's agent and he and his team handled the situation very well; every single step of the way. I would definitely recommend him and used him again.

— Rachel Pena, Seller's daughter

We couldn’t have asked for a better Realtor

— Angela Lindsay, Buyer and Seller

The timing worked out perfectly

Mark and the Team helped us coordinate buying and selling so that the timing worked out perfectly. Everybody we worked with responded quickly and answered every question we had along the way. We couldn't have asked for a better experience.

— Darin Henderson, 2 Time Seller

You can’t go wrong with Amy

Amy is an amazing realtor to work with. She has years of experience and knows the ins and outs of the industry, especially in the RVA area. She answered all questions I had about the home buying process. She met me multiple times at the end of the day (5 p.m. and later) to look at homes. You can't go wrong with choosing Amy as your realtor!

— Anel Mesic, Buyer

Excellent in all phases of the home purchasing process!

The Mark Adams team is excellent in all phases of the home purchasing process! We felt that they were always ready to serve us in any way possible to make our home purchase an enjoyable experience. This was our first home purchase, so we asked a ton of questions. Each member of this team quickly responds to emails, phone calls and/or texts. We did not ever feel pressured or rushed during our first home search and buying adventure. They set up a single-family home search that automatically sent homes that matched our specific criteria to our email, so we could check and view at our leisure. Whenever we were interested in any property, it was very easy to get in touch with them and schedule a viewing or just to get more details. The Mark Adams team worked diligently with our lender and attorneys to make sure that our closing process was seamless and as stress free as possible. We feel confident in saying that this is the best real estate team you will find in this area!

— Thomas Lord, First Time Homebuyer

Everyone made us feel comfortable

We highly recommend Mark Adams and his team. We used his agency about 6 years to purchase our first home. Everyone made us feel comfortable through the process and they were highly knowledgeable. In fact we were so impressed that we hired Mark and his team again this year when we decided to sell our home. It only took 5 days to find a buyer! Mark and his associates are very personable and they understand the current market. They made me and my wife comfortable through what can be a stressful process. We can not say enough about Mark Adams and Associates. If you decide to go with his agency, it would be one of the smartest decisions you can make

— Bryan and Michelle Andrews, Seller

Best. Experience. Ever.

Best. Experience. Ever. Mark and his team did all the heavy lifting to sell my home, and all I had to do was follow their lead. They coordinated literally everything: repairs, cleaning, communication with my renter – everything. Super awesome to work with overall, and very educated in the real estate business. Mark’s guidance and integrity caught several things that saved us money, and in the end benefited me and the buyer. I will never work with any other agent. Prior to selling my home, I worked with Amy Baker on the purchase of 2 homes, both of which were amazing experiences. Amy's diligence and savvy approach won us our current home at just the right price.

— The Cullens, Seller

Selling My Mom’s Home

Mark Adams and his team did an AMAZING job selling my mom's home, my childhood home. The hardest part was making the phone call. Having recently moved my mom to a care facility and having never been through the selling process, Mark was extremely patient and informative regarding the selling process and sympathetic to the situation. He was very "up-front" regarding the house/situation, which was sometimes hard to hear, but I appreciated his honesty. Mark and his staff were always courteous and prompt to respond to calls and emails. Given his market knowledge and great pro-active approach, my mom's home sold immediately! The closing process went very smoothly, as his staff was very efficient and timely with preparation. Mark has an outstanding team and lots of great contacts, which really helped me to prepare the home for sale. I will definitely be calling him again when I decide to sell my home. AMAZING experience....I'm still blown away.

— Debbie Ward, Seller

Would highly recommend them to others.

We cannot express enough how happy we were with Mark and everyone on the team that helped us during this process. Mark was knowledgeable, professional and always available for us when we had questions. Lisa did an incredible job taking pictures of our home and captured all the hard work we put in to getting it ready to market. Annmarie was on top of everything and did an exceptional job in keeping us informed through every step. She was always ready to answer our questions or find someone that could. We will certainly call on them in the future and would highly recommend them to others.

— Mark and Ellie Davis, Seller

Above and Beyond Responsiveness

Extremely professional -- all staff members we came in contact with. Above and beyond responsiveness to all my/hubs concerns, throughout the ENTIRE process. PATIENCE -- we are both elderly. Not once did any of the staff treat us in the manner of talking down -- as do so many who have no patience with the elderly. Follow-thru. We were kept abreast of all steps/procedure throughout the process. No surprises. We no longer live in VA, but would definitely refer this company to anyone in VA (Mark and assocs.).

— Dolores McCadney, Seller

He came up with a plan that worked perfectly!

Mark Adams and his entire team were great! Many times you hear horror stories about realtors that don't want to work with you but that is not the case here. Mark sat down with us and listened to what we wanted to do and came up with a plan that worked perfectly! Within three weeks of being on the market, we had an acceptable offer and we recently closed on the house! They kept us informed every step of the way and made this experience excellent! I highly recommend them!

— The Condrey/Dunn Family, Seller

Super Helpful

Amy Baker is super helpful and responds quickly!! She found us a great house. We are new to the area and Amy was helpful in showing us different areas of town and meeting our needs.

— Wendy Whitlow, Buyer

Right on the Money!

We appreciated the initial strategy session. Mark's market knowledge proved to be right on the money. My husband and I were relieved to have a team of experts on the ground in Richmond since we live 3 hours away. The friendly support for everything from finding resources for power washing and picking up unwanted items to overseeing all of the processes involved in the real estate transaction made everything go so smoothly for us. It is hard to imagine a more pleasant settlement. I highly recommend Mark Adams and his team for anyone who needs to buy or sell real estate in the Richmond area.

— Marsha Lunsford, Seller

Mark Adams is a great guy.

"Mark Adams is a great guy. He led me through each step so patiently. He was very supportive throughout the process. I would highly recommend Mark . As a matter of fact, I am going to turn to him again when I sell my present home."

— Carolyn Fergusson, Seller

A smooth and successful process

The experience with the Mark Adams team was outstanding. The sale of our family home was challenging prior coming to market. Mark was able to represent us and bring together all the components to make it a smooth and successful process. I can not say enough about the knowledge, determination and commitment shown to represent the customer.

— Cheryl Matter

Hard-working, energetic and knowledgeable

I've known Mark for years. He is hard-working, energetic, and knowledgeable. He has helped many of my clients, and I consistently get excellent reports from them as to Mark's services. He has helped me sell a couple of homes over the years for me and my family. I plan to use him next time I sell a home

Thanks so much to Mark and his entire staff for helping us find the perfect first home!

— Adrian Robinette

Extremely knowledgeable on pricing strategies

Mark helped me with the sale of my previous house. He was extremely knowledgeable on pricing strategies and what had to be done to the house to position it for a speedy sale. When the sales process hit a snag due to a difficult buyer, he helped push through and get us to closing.

— Alex Zoppos, Seller

Experienced and Energetic Professional

Amy has negotiated 2 purchases on our behalf in the Richmond area and we have been very satisfied.

In a word, they are wonderful.

I would highly recommend the Mark Adams team to anyone looking to buy a new home or sell their existing home. Actually, I have already told some friends about them. In a word, they are wonderful. I must admit, I am a difficult client that can test the patience of anyone. But Mark, Lisa, Amy, and Annemarie walked my wife and I through each step of the process, making it much easier than I anticipated. They were able to market my home and sell it only two days after the "For Sale" sign went up! In addition, I actually got more than I expected because of Mark's ability to negotiate and read the buyer. Once the contract was signed, they took care of everything to make sure the process went smoothly for me and in a timely manner. All the details were explained to me and I knew exactly where we were at all times. I see & hear many realtors advertising on TV, radio, and print. However, I simply cannot imagine anyone being more professional, knowledgeable, thorough, and caring about the sale of our home. My wife and I are at the point in my lives where this will be our last move. But if we ever need to go through this process again, I would certainly use the Mark Adams team. I truthfully don't know how they could have been any better!

Class company from top to bottom

Mark and his company help me along the way with everything. Since I was dealing with selling my deceased brother's house and everything that goes with it. He gave me the options of what I could get "as-is" and also what could be done to get the most out of the property. He also knows the market very well because he told me what the consumers were looking for in the housing market. They showed my house almost 10 times in a week and half and had a contract less than 2 weeks from going on the market. Class company from top to bottom, always had answers for you and willing to do the extra little things that makes his company stand out in my eyes.

— John Knoy, Seller

Amy is not only a great realtor but also a wonderful and thoughtful person

Amy Baker was wonderful and went above and beyond to help me find the perfect home. She even helped me pick out a paint color and told me where my furniture should go. I started looking more than a year ago and at that time wanted a one floor ground condo. Amy was great in keeping me updated with one floor condos as they came on the market. When I decided I wanted a two story condo she found the perfect condo in less than a week. Amy is not only a great realtor but also a wonderful and thoughtful person.

— Emily Goodykoontz, Buyer

Amy showed keen attention to detail

Amy has assisted me on numerous occasions with all of my real estate. She showed keen attention to detail, never overlooked a thing, and was a pleasure to work with at all times.

— Greg Green, Investor

The office of Mark Adams made our process stress-free.

We worked with Amy Baker at the office of Mark Adams. She was very responsive and kept us updated throughout the entire process. We are first time home buyers and the office of Mark Adams made our process stress-free.

— Matt and Kristen Grunwald, Buyer

Mark will go above and beyond

Mark will go above and beyond to help his clients in almost any way that he can. He is honest and trustworthy. You can rely on him to tell you like it is...even when you don't want to hear it. If there is something he doesn't know, he's been in the area long enough that he's usually able to find out quickly. He's got local resources and contacts that are always willing to help him. He has a team supporting him with the same skill sets. He surrounds himself with people who are willing to work hard and make sure the clients are satisfied. I would never recommend anyone other than Mark and Mark Adams & Associates for all your real estate needs.

— Eric and Sue DeMaria

Mark was instantly helpful and easy to speak with.

I first contacted Mark about a house I didn't have quite enough approval to buy but instead of blowing me off, he took the time to speak to me and offer guidance related to the home buying process. Mark was instantly helpful and easy to speak with. About a week or two later I settled on a lender and FHA loan program and called Mark back to set up a meeting to interview them to represent me. Mark set me up with his buyers agent. Amy was an all star. She answered emails and text quickly, even on weekends. Amy was always on time and well prepared which was important to me. Amy literally took the seller behind the woodshed for me and got me a hell of a deal with more extras than I ever expected. I didn't pay any closing cost and in fact got all my money back at closing that I had initially put into the deal such as the appraisal and home inspection. Toward closing they even sent me a list of all the utilities contacts I needed to get services to my new home hooked up and they have been in contact after closing to see if I had any problems or needed any help eith anything. I was deeply impressed with Mark and Amy's knowledge of the varied aspects of real estate, the network of contacts they can bring to bare if needed, and the presence of an entire team to back me up. I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants to buy or sell a home in the RVA area.

Great Local Knowledge

Amy Baker my real estate agent was excellent and very patient with us. Great local knowledge and superior negotiating skills. I would recommend her to anyone who is in a market for a house.

— Fadil

Start to finish, this was a blessing to find this team

Mark's team did a fabulous job. During a period of stress, relocation from overseas and the many challenges this involved when buying a home, they made it great. Our Agent Amy Baker is a lifetime Richmond resident and this proved to be invaluable. She knew the neighborhood. She did her homework, determining what we really wanted and where to find it at a price point we could afford. Start to finish, this was a blessing to find this team and these people.

— Gene and Theresa Diemer, Buyer and Seller

Extremely knowledgeable

Mark Adams & Associates is who you need when it comes to buying and selling. My husband and I had to do both and thankfully, Mark was able to put our house on the market, while Amy helped us in choosing the perfect new home. Both of them are extremely knowledgeable and can handle any request or demand you throw their way. Their advice speaks volumes and what was told was exactly what happened. You get clear and precise answers – no messing around. Lisa is the perfect person to handle all your selling needs and can get to your inquiry in record time. Annemarie’s friendliness and quick responses to anything home related complements the entire team. Together, the four of them will make your experience magical. We definitely will refer them to our family and friends!

— Nikki Brown, Buyer and Seller

Lisa took fantastic pictures

We hired Mark to sell our house in Richmond, VA. He did a fantastic job. He provided expert advice regarding pricing and Lisa took fantastic pictures of our house. Our home's promotion on the web was superb. We had 12 showings the first weekend it was listed - and received an offer within the first week. All of this was during a very crummy real estate market. I highly recommend the Mark Adams Team for real estate transactions in the Richmond, VA area!

— Suzanne Gore, Home Seller

Sold my daughter’s home in 3 days

When my daughter died, I inherited her house and all her belongings. Because of medical problems, I was unable to go to the house. Mark and Lisa Adams facilitated cleaning out all of the contents, donating the useable items to various charities and getting the needed repairs done. The nice thing about the entire process was that Mark and Lisa took care of everything. All I did was make a phone call. I never even set foot in the house. They sold my daughter's house in 3 days and for more than asking price!

— Ann Smith, Home Seller

A neighbor recommended Mark

We were given Mark's name by a neighbor who had bought a home from him and highly recommended Mark. We called Mark and made an appointment, which was at our convenience, to come and see our home. Mark came totatly prepared for the appointment. His knowledge of the area and what was going on in the real estate market was vast. His comps were spot on since he has worked a lot in the neighborhood. We were convinced immediately that Mark was the one we wanted to show and sell our house. After we signed we were introduced to the rest of his team. Lisa, who came to take photos of the house was a real pleasure to work with. Her pictures of the house inside and out were very professionally done. Her ideas and suggestions were a tremendous help in getting the best possible results. A REAL PRO. Next we met Annemarie who was a huge help throughout the entire process. No stone was left unturned with Annemarie. She was on top of EVERYTHING and her follow-up was amazing. Mark's Team works like a well oiled machine. Everyone knows their job and does it extremely well. The house was listed and two days later we had a full price offer. Due to some unforeseen problems with the buyer the deal was terminated. The house was again put on the market and three days later we had a full price offer which was approved and we closed within 45 days. I can't say enough good things about Mark and his Team. I would highly recommend Mark and his Team without hesitation to anyone who was either looking to buy or looking to sell in the neighborhood.

— Phil Serianni, Home Seller

Helped me every step of the way

Mark had helped us buy this house 15 years ago, and when I was ready to sell, and move back to PA., I knew Mark had to be my agent. He had so impressed us the first time, and he did it again. This was a tough time for me; my husband has Alzheimer's and I had to do this without him. From the day I called Mark, he helped me every step of the way. He recommended excellent people to do the work necessary to get the house ready for sale. He answered every question and every call. He told me he was here to make sure that the process did not overwhelm me and he would take care of everything, and he was true to his word. He takes great pride in the work he does and it shows, and his team follows his lead. The day before I was ready to move out it was garbage pick-up day, but they left some items that were not in the container. I called Mark's office because I was concerned about leaving it. He actually came over himself and got rid of it for me so that I would not be worried. Mark and his team are the complete package when it comes to service. I wish everyone would be like Mark when it comes to how people treat customers. I would highly recommend Mark to anyone!

— D. Hutterer, Home Buyer and Seller

We felt like Mark’s only clients

In the Spring of 2015, we contacted Mark and Lisa Adams on the recommendation of the retirement community to which we were moving. With their advice and help (and prayers), we were able to sell our home of 40+ years in 4 days for the asking price. They always made us feel like we were special and the only clients they were working with. In addition to selling our house, Lisa was able to get our cat, Brady, to sit in her lap so she could trim his toenails.

— Laura Stonestreet, Home Seller

Even other agents refer Mark Adams

I would like to thank Mark and Lisa for their assistance selling my mother’s home. After the passing of my father, she decided to move to a senior community. This was a stressful, emotional move, and they handled everything with the utmost care and concern.They both handled all my questions promptly and professionally. I was totally comfortable working with them. When you have overprotective family members involved, it takes true professionals to provide great service. Lisa and Mark Adams handled everything smoothly, courteously and efficiently. They are especially great working with seniors and their families!

— Mike Humphrey, Louisianna Realtor, Agent Referral

Personal and professional integrity that shines through

My husband and I have engaged Mark for multiple real estate transactions, both buying and selling. Mark possesses a personal and professional integrity that shines through from putting the sign in the yard through closing and after. He knows the market well and has always been willing to share his knowledge in order for us to make the right decisions for our needs. One of my favorite qualities about Mark is that he is direct, but with a positive swing. With each transaction, we knew that we could trust Mark to tell us exactly what we needed to know or do in order to achieve success ... And he's right. It IS a good life.

— Stacey Wilcox, Home Buyer and Seller

Smooth as possible

Mark and his team made the process of buying a home in Richmond as smooth as possible. Like other incoming residents my wife and I had limited time to look at houses. His team not only showed us around the city but helped direct us to particular areas that best met our individual interests and needs. We would recommend using Mark and his team to anyone looking to buy in the Richmond area.

— Dr. John Sentz, Home Buyer

Stress free and simple

Even in the toughest housing market in decades, Mark Adams assured us he would sell our home quickly and for a fair price. He was right. His team made the process stress-free and simple. We felt confident and assured all the time.

— Dr. Dirk Dolbeare, Home Buyer and Seller

I’ve bought 2 houses and sold another with Mark

Mark brings a an energetic can do attitude to the table every day, regardless of how large or how small the potential rewards are for him. I've bought 2 houses and sold another house through Mark. After the first couple of days of doing business with him, I knew that I could leave everything in his hands, and have the confidence that he would take care of my needs. He sold my house in less than 2 days. We ran into an issue with our buyer the day before closing, and he turned what could have been an extremely stressful situation into a smooth resolution (with very little assistance from me). If you want your house sold, or need someone who will find the perfect house for you, Mark is your guy!

— Steve Agee, Multiple Times Home Buyer & Seller

Could not be more satisfied

I could not have been more happy and satisfied with Mark and his staff during the process of selling my Father's home. I am not from the area so it was hard for me to get to the house often. Mark took care of all that needed to be done to prepare the house to be put on the market. I felt very comfortable leaving everything in his hands. He was great about keeping me updated during the process of the sale and walking me through anything I didn't understand. The home was sold very quickly and everything went very well. I would highly recommend Mark Adams!!!

— Laurie Canavan, Out of State Home Seller

The house sold and closed quickly

Mark provided us with reassurance and confidence that we could sell our home quickly. He had been through similar circumstances and provided guidance on what to do and when. We vacated the property and moved out of state and he and his team (Lisa especially) stayed in contact to manage and address issues that we could not directly. The house sold and closed quickly and with minimal worries on our part. Thanks to the professionalism and dedication of Mark and his team.

— Fred Weck, Home Seller

Best buyer’s agent around!

Amy Baker is the best buyer's agent around! She knows the history of all the neighborhoods and keeps her finger on the pulse of the market. This is the second home Amy has helped us purchase. Hopefully we won't be buying a new home anytime soon, but if we decide to, we'll call Mark and Amy.

— Jeff Gore, Repeat Home Buyer

Always on top of things

Mark Adams and team was able to provide excellent service to sell my home. They were very prompt in their responsiveness and whenever there was an issue, they are always on top of things and communicated them to me immediately. They followed up on actions so nothing was forgotten.

— Ying Li, Home seller

The closing was painless

Mark was the answer to my prayers. After dealing with two agents that were out to only make a profit, and knowing I had limited time to sell the house since I now live on the West Coast, I had a realtor in Seattle connect me with Mark. Professional, understanding, a real "straight shooter", he helped me understand the market, and even after I went back to the West Coast, kept in close touch as we worked on selling the house. The closing process was painless. I would recommend him to anyone, anytime, and will let all my family and friends in Virginia that this is a very trustworthy, honest real estate agent (something that in my experience is pretty rare).

— Heather Taylor, Out of State Home Seller

We referred our family to Mark Adams

We had the pleasure of working with Amy Baker who was absolutely amazing. Consistently patient with us as first time home buyers as it took us a while to decide on what type of house we wanted as well as being there to help when we needed. She did thorough research on houses we were interested in and after interviewing 2 other realtors we were sold on her. Like every house closing process there were some hiccups along the way (with us it related to our closing attorney and the surveryor). Amy went so far above and beyond her job duties by fighting for our interests it was amazing. She escalated our issue to the head of the law firm. Highly highly recommend Amy and the team at Mark Adams. My sister in law is using her right now as well and has been happy as well.

— , First Time Home Buyers

Amy was so helpful

We came down one weekend, and met with Amy Baker. She was technically off that weekend for the holiday but met with us anyway. Amy was so helpful and stepped us through the process very precisely and professionally! After visiting for two more weekends we found a house to purchase and actually moved in after a couple of weeks. We needed to move in as soon as possible and wasn't expecting to close on the house and move in under a months time.

— Jonathan Bennett, Home Buyer - New Construction

Amy helped us purchase new construction

Amy Baker from Mark Adams' group helped us purchase our house. She has in depth understanding of market, is very knowledgeable and professional (truly representing us) and knows the area very well. It was a very pleasant experience to work with Amy and the rest of Adams' team. This is our first time buying new construction. Amy attended all the meetings and inspections. She was very patient and helpful. Even after closing and moving she would check with us to make sure that everything is ok. I would highly recommend Mark Adams and his team to any potential seller or buyer.

— Jan, Home Buyer - New Construction

We were treated so well

Our buyers agent was AMAZING!!!! He found us a house within a week, and we were homeowners within a month and a half! You can't go wrong with Mark Adams and his team!! We were treated SO well and everyone went up and beyond our expectations! I know this sounds far too positive to be real, but it really is true! We are so happy in our new home :) THANK YOU!

— Julie Sader, First Time Home Buyer

Confidence and attention to every detail

We were very impressed with the overall experience we had while working with the Mark Adams Team. They lead the way through the process of buying and selling a home with confidence and attention to every detail. Communication was incredible and we felt like our concerns were always a top priority. Every aspect went smoothly from beginng to end due to a whole team approach through closing. No detail gets overlooked. Mark is very knowledgeable in the housing market trends which was obviously very important in negotiating on both sides of our sales. They are go getters and we are so glad we had them in our corner.

— The Cassarotti Family, Home Buyers and Sellers

Upfront and honest

Mark Adams was very instrumental at a time in my life when I needed someone with his expertise. He was very upfront and honest ensuring that he and his company had my best interest at heart. As a result, I was able to make a transition with a sense of peace. I have and will continue to recommend him to others needed his services.

— Gayle Jones, Home Seller

Excellent follow-up

I knew every day what was happening with the showings. Someone followed up by calling me after each time the house was shown. Mark called every Friday to check in and let me know how the week had gone and whether we needed to adjust anything. Mark's team made it all seem easy........lessening the anxiety!

— Glen Allen, Home Seller

Focused on results

Mark and his team really focus on getting results and they are dedicated above and beyond the call of duty. I've been working with them for more than 6 years and am still amazed at the insights, enthusiasm, and passion they bring to every encounter.

— Zippa, Seller

I refer all my friends

Mark and team have always been on top off any referral I have ever passed. They take genuine care of their clients and stay in touch to provide more value that just the house. :) I would 100% recommend them.

— Casey Burke Bunn

Sold my first home and bought my second

The Mark Adams team helped me to sell my first home and buy my second. From start to finish, they were helpful, informative, respectful, and amazingly responsive. Even when my questions did not pertain directly to the sale or purchase, they were quick to help me find answers. They helped me to get a fair price for the home I was selling, as well as a fair price on the new home I purchased. Working with the Mark Adams team is the closest you can get to working with family. They truly care about their clients and have their clients' very best interests in mind at all times. Whenever a friend or coworker has a real estate need, I insist that they call the Mark Adams team. Their honesty and integrity are second to none, and I would never dream of using another real estate team for my needs.

— Alisha K, Buyer and Seller

First time home buyers

My husband and I were first time home buyers and we had a wonderful experience with Mark Adams & Associates. I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone who is looking for a realtor in the Richmond area.

— Jeb and Christine Helms, First Time Home Buyers

Recommended by a friend

I was recommended to Mark by a friend. Our house was not the greatest but he looked at it, put down a clear course of direction and was honest about what to expect and what was realistic. We live out of state so he orchestrated the entire thing, including renovation. The house listed on April 7, 2016 and closed on May 12, 2016. It was such a relief and his advice was sound! I would recommend his team over and over again!

— Alec Miller, Home Seller

They are always available

Mark Adams & his team.... Annemarie Young & his wife, Lisa Adams, did an excellent job in selling our home. Very professional & friendly... They were always available for us in every step from the beginning to the end of the sale. We would highly recommend them.

— James and Debbie Lane, Home Seller

Great Experience

We had a great experience with the Mark Adams & Associates! They were helpful throughout the entire process of buying and selling. Mark is experienced and very knowledgeable of the local Richmond market. We trusted his guidance and were very pleased with the outcome. We highly recommend using them for your real estate needs!

— Douglas and Sally Johnson, Home Buyer and Seller

No Competition!

If I could have given Mark Adams a more than "excellent" score for negotiation skills, I would have. He deserves 10 stars and so does his team. We were first time home buyers in an area where the homes are selling the first day they go on the market. We really wanted to avoid a bidding war but had no choice. After months of searching, my husband and I found a home that would be just perfect for our family. We wrote an offer right after we viewed the property. Unfortunately, so did several other people. With Mark's guidance and superb negotiation skills (can't say that enough), we submitted an offer and beat out the competition. I had heard horror stories about people losing out on house after house, offer after offer. We are so glad we didn't have to go through all that. Mark Adams & Associates is top notch. Throughout inspections and the loan process, they stayed in constant contact with us. We never had any concerns that things were being taken care of. The house is now ours and we couldn't be happier. Thank you, thank you, thank you to Mark Adams & Associates for making our dreams come true.

— L. Daniels, Buyer

Moving on to the Retirement Lifestyle

My husband and I decided we wanted to live in a retirement community. We called Mark and Lisa to be our real estate agents. They did so much more than selling a house! They had a contractor do minor repairs, referred us to our mover, and had our home professionally cleaned from top to bottom. We never expected the process to be so fast and painless. Mark and Lisa were considerate of the emotional aspects of older clients having to discard 45+ years of accumulation and leaving their home of 30+ years.

— George and Nancy Plunkett, Home seller

Super Smooth and Flawless!

I have worked with Mark Adams several times now, and look forward to working with his team again in the future. He makes the process so easy, with his experience, involvement and expertise. Our house sold much faster than expected, but the personal attention and availability made the process go super smooth and flawless!! I would highly recommend!!!
