What People are Saying About Us!

Here are a few examples about what Clients and Business relation have to say about us!

Leo Facio, Mayor of Harrison Hot Springs &  Seller of his Home in Harrison Hot Springs, BC:  If you are looking for Real Estate Professionals in Harrison Hot Springs, Linda Marks & Freddy Marks are your Team to call! Always prompt, helpful, and professional. They are honest and straight forward.  My last house was not an easy sale but Freddy & Linda, a father daughter team with their office located in Harrison were not afraid to stick with me, spent the marketing money way above the average realtor until the job was done and my house was sold. Freddy and Linda are great negotiators and are not afraid to go the extra mile. I am happy to refer them to every home seller in Harrison.  Linda and Freddy always have their client’s best interest in mind and I recommend them to anyone buying or selling a home in Harrison Hot Springs.

Frank & Helen Watson, Harrison Hot Springs, BC When we listed our home in Harrison Hot Springs 18 months ago we chose a large real estate company and were told that we had the advantage of more showings and more offers because of the number of agents in that particular office. We knew the Real Estate Market was slow but with very few showings and no offers, we finally decided it was time to try something different. Freddy Marks was new to Harrison Hot Springs and we didn't know much about him, his name just popped up here and there,  but we had nothing to lose so decided to give him a call.  His professionalism and enthusiastic approach made us feel confident that we had made the right decision. Within a month we had an offer (lower than we wanted) but Freddy worked with us to make it happen. With a very quick closing date approaching, Freddy and his wife Evelyn spent the day with us in Coquitlam showing us several homes in our preferred area (thank you Evelyn for your keen eye!). At the end of the day Freddy presented our offer on our chosen property and it was accepted. Freddy and Linda kept us informed every step of the way,  via e-mail and phone calls, with both the sale of our old home and purchase of the new one - it all went like clockwork.  On our possession date (worst snow day of the year) Freddy and Evelyn were waiting for us in Coquitlam with the keys to our new home, and had even had a cozy fire waiting for us when we walked in. If you are selling or buying real estate we highly recommend Freddy Marks and his team, his work ethic and attention to detail is outstanding, it was a pleasure doing business with him and we would not hesitate to call on him again in the future.

Bonnie Smith & Bruce Cochrane Seller Marguerite Ranch, We found Freddy Marks diligent in his duties.  His realistic evaluation of the market gave us the tools to make informed decisions in the selling of our ranch.  Communication with him was positive, emails were replied to quickly and phone calls returned in a timely manner.  When there was activity on our listing, he kept us informed. Overall, we are satisfied with the representation and sale of our property conducted by Freddy Marks. Thank you.

Rob Steves, Buyer Kane Valley Property: Freddy, I have no complaints. You and your 3A® Network Group have been very responsive and easy to work with and I think you earned your cut ;-). I would recommend your service and I will call you again myself for the next property... but that will probably be many years away. Cheers, Rob

Jim and Susan: " Linda sold our home just in the nick of time, Right down to the wire”,

Hans & Lena Dorward from Utrecht Holland: "After having listed our home with another company for seven months, Linda sold ours in 14 days with their very custom marketing plan. " Linda and her Team had a massive marketing program to sell my home. My home was a fully remodeled house, but the first company couldn’t do it. I gave the house to Linda to sell and she did it."

Rodman Gil Ostrander, Chairman  & Founder of BEI Group International, Nürnberg: I have known Mr. Freddy Marks since 1995 as a real estate broker in the RE/MAX real estate system in Germany. He is a first class broker/manager with excellent recruiting and mentoring skills. His ability to motivate his staff was regularly in the high level production numbers he was able to report monthly. As the Managing Director of RE/MAX Europe, I was impressed with his sales management performance as a Broker that I personally encouraged and sponsored Freddy as a partner in the RE/MAX master franchise for Holland. In his capacity he set sales records for Europe. Mr. Marks is one of the best salesmen I have ever known in my 30 year – sales, training and business development career. I would recommend Freddy for any position that involves high level sales, complex selling situations or /and people management skills. I am happy to answer any questions any you can contact me through my office in Germany at any time.

Georgina Tucker, Vancouver Island, Thank you Freddy for your constant attention to the details on the sale of my Horsefly property. Despite the fact that I am in Sooke you covered all of the local details and made the process go very smoothly. I really appreciate all you have done.

Debbie Jones, Williams Lake, I am please to provide a letter of referral for Mr. Freddy Marks of the 3A Network Group. Mr. Freddy Marks conducted our business in a very professional, consensus manner that resulted in a quick sale.  Through the process; Mr. Marks kept in touch with us via email, by telephone and by personal meetings accordingly.  He was always pleasant and followed up with documentation and phone inquiries.  Mr. Marks also followed up well after the completion of the sale to ensure the closing went well. Mr. Marks is very familiar with the area in which we listed "the property".  When we were seeking a listing Realtor, we had asked other people in the area who have used him as a listing agent about conducting business with him.  He was highly recommended.  His reputation precedes him, and I would highly recommend Mr. Freddy Marks as a listing agent when dealing specifically with Waterfront Properties.

Walter J. Schneider, President & Co Founder RE/MAX Europe, Toronto ON, & Wien Austria: I have known Freddy Marks for approximate 8.5 years through a variety of capacities. Freddy was first introduced to me as RE/MAX broker in Germany. Sometime thereafter he became partners with Felix de Wit in the ownership of RE/MAX of the Netherlands and operated that region very successfully for 2.5 years. He and his partner were franchise sales leader for Europe during that time. Thereafter he became an owner and managing partner of RE/MAX Germany. Mr. Marks has spent more than 8 years in the RE/MAX organization in a variety of capacities. I have always known Mr. Marks to be a respected and dedicated team player. He has demonstrated strong sales skills in all capacities in which he worked. In addition he also showed great enthusiasm and optimism in the business challenges he faced.

Tommy de Groot, Hengelo, Holland - After all this years, you still serve everybody “First Class”. You made the whole day smooth and easy.

M. Sedlmayer, Gibsons, BC - Freddy, your excellent service and salesmanship won me over. Thank you for all the help you provided.

Fritz Kuhlmann, Kleve, Germany - Danke für Ihre effektive Arbeit. Ihr Service und Ihre Schnelligkeit verdienen meinen Respekt. Immobilienkauf im Ausland ist immer voller Überraschungen. Sie sorgten dafür dass es keine negativen wurden

Walter Schmidt Germany / Canada – Freddy has been our Canadian / German family realtor for over 12 years.  We find that we can call on him from time to time to discuss real estate matters. He is always willing to go the extra mile for us. Freddy takes whatever time we need to find answers to our questions. We recommend Freddy for your real estate matters. We wouldn't use anyone else

Rick and Sonja Frantzen, Vancouver, BC - Freddy and his team were incredibly patient and helpful, answering our questions, finding homes to look at, finding more homes to look at, offering helpful hints and asking thought-provoking questions as we sought to upgrade to a larger home to better fit our growing family. Whenever we'd spot another home we'd like to see, Freddy was always willing to set up a showing. When we decided to put our home on the market, Freddy came by to give us hints on how we could make it show better and helped us understand how our home stacked up against the competition. When the sellers of our new home showed signs of "sellers' remorse", Freddy and his office worked with the other agent to keep things in motion and keep us informed. They certainly "did whatever it took" to get our old house sold quickly and our new house ready for move-in.

Georg Wüllen, Düsseldorf , Germany, - Skeptisch, Kritisch gegenüber Immobilienmaklern, insbesondere im Ausland, das war unser Bild bevor wir Freddy Marks kennen lernten. Mit Verständnis für unsere Vorbehalte führten Sie uns an die Problematik des Immobileinkaufs im Ausland. Ich muss sagen dass Sie unser Weltbild Ihrem Berufstand gegenüber total veränderten. Sie arbeiteten hart, professionell und immer kompetent. Wo Sie selbst keine Antwort auf unsere Fragen wussten da machten Sie sich sachkundig. Wir hoffen das unsere neue positive Beziehung weiterhin von Erfolg gekrönt sein wird.

Uta und Horst Maeckelburg, Kelowna, BC, - Für Deine einmalig großartige Leistung beim Verkauf unseres Motels in Radium Hot Springs möchten wir uns herzlichst bedanken. In nur vier Monaten hast Du es geschafft einen guten Preis für unseren Besitz zu erzielen, womit wir und wir glauben auch sagen zu können, der Käufer zufrieden ist.Vier Makler haben vor Dir vergeblich versucht einen Verkaufserfolg zu erzielen. Wir waren sehr skeptisch nochmals einen Verkaufsauftrag zu erteilen. Du hast es allerdings verstanden innerhalb kurzer Zeit soviel Vertrauen aufzubauen das wir es dennoch taten.Wir haben es nicht bereut und sind rundum zufrieden. Danke!

Andrea Bullmann, RE/MAX Paderborn, Germany – Seit nunmehr 5 Jahren sind wir in einer kontinuierlichen Geschäftsverbindung mit Freddy Marks. In dieser gesamten Zeit gab es niemals Anlass für Beschwerden oder Streitigkeiten. Alle Vorgänge wurden zu unserer vollsten Zufriedenheit kundenorientiert abgewickelt. Freddy Marks arbeitet immer kompetent, zügig Sache – und Problembezogen. Zusagen und Absprachen wurden in der Vergangenheit immer eingehalten. Wir freuen uns schon jetzt unsere internationale Zusammenarbeit für die Zukunft weiter auszubauen.

Mr. Willaim Grulkey & Ms. Janie Wong, Vancouver, BC - My wife and I recently listed a rustic waterfront, 10 acre property with Mr. Freddy Marks. This particular property, although a nature lovers’ paradise, was a tough sell. Situated some 25-30 km outside of 100 Mile House in British Columbia on Ruth Lake, the asking price was near the high end of the market for waterfront properties, especially in an undeveloped state, and although the access road was a "no exit" road meaning there was no thru traffic, the road was gravel for 10 kms. We had previously listed the property with two other local real estate agents for over a year but had not received any offers. However, with Mr. Freddy Marks, we had an offer within 3 months of giving him the listing and eventually sold the property for a very acceptable term, and in a very acceptable process. Freddy worked diligently on our behalf, to a much high degree than all previous agents. To my surprise one morning as I sat in my office having my morning coffee, as I read the Globe & Mail, there was a photo advertisement of our property. Not just a printed text description, but an actual photo of the property! It is our opinion that Freddy showed the effort to sell our property that other agents did not, with the result that he found a buyer for us, and he also did this in a very difficult real estate market. We would like to recommend Mr Freddy Marks to everyone who is buying or selling recreational properties in British Columbia.

Jochen Blumenauer, Eigentümer 3A Makler-Netzwerk Blumenauer, München: Sehr geehrter Herr Marks, wir freuen uns, Sie als Mitglied im 3A Makler-Netzwerk begrüßen zu können. Damit haben wir wieder Gelegenheit, unsere ausgezeichneten Verbindungen für unsere Kundschaft nutzbar zu machen. Ihre fundierten Fachkenntnisse, sowohl über das deutsche, als auch über das kanadische Immobiliengeschäft sind darüber hinaus eine ausgezeichnete Grundlage für qualifizierte Immobilienberatung. Unsere Kundschaft wird das zu schätzen wissen.

Larry & Natalie Bartlett, Horsefly, BC, Both Natalie and myself would like to Thank You your professionalism on the sale of our ranch in Horsefly, as well as the patience and expertise that you demonstrated on the purchase of our lakefront property. Thank you very much!

Mike Mudhar, former Owner of the Jamboree Motel, Williams Lake BC, We recently sold our Motel “The Jamboree” here in Williams Lake. For many years we tried to sell our Motel. Several realtors tried to get it sold but nobody preformed. Freddy Marks and his Team were referred to us by a business relation. His unique marketing and hard work ethics made the sale to BC Housing happen. He sold the Motel in a very short time. We recommend Freddy & Linda to any Motel Owner who is interested in marketing results.

Maureen Hinton & Richard Plaskett, Seller Williams Lake, BC, We would like to thank our Realtors Freddy Marks & Linda Marks. We had to sell our acreage for medical reasons and move from Williams Lake to Kamloops. Linda and Freddy did everything to keep the whole transaction as easy and smudge for us as possible. When we had an offer for our property Freddy took us to Kamloops to find another home. Linda helped us with all the paperwork including visits at the bank. Also Linda’s photography was commented on by everybody. She created the most “Revealing photos of the lifestyle our home and acreage has to offer”

Barry N. Dadswell, Mission, BC, and Seller of Oceanfront Double Lot: I had been trying to market my property in Eucott-Bay for the last six years with no success, until I met Freddy Marks. Freddy said that he would look at my property and let me know if would take on the job!- I thought he would just pass it by because the property was only accessible by boat or seaplane and who is going to go have a look at a property with limited access by boat or sea plane.

Freddy went and had a look. He said that if you are to take on the job of selling the property, you have to do your due diligence and go have a look, see for yourself so that when you are talking to potential buyers you have a firsthand knowledge of what you are selling. Freddy took on the job of selling the property.

Freddy marketed the property in magazines, news papers, through twenty or more web sites and even made up some beautiful pictured brochures of Eucott Bay.

I believe that Freddy Marks has done a real bang up job of marketing and selling my property. I would recommend Freddy to anyone whom would want to buy or sell property in British Columbia or any other country in the world. He even sells Castles in Germany.

Thank you again Freddy for the opportunity of working with you and hope to see you in the future.
