Extremely knowledgeable, very professional. They were great to work with, and know the market in and around Pensacola. They were professional, gave frequent feedback, kept up the marketing pressure, and was very honest and trustworthy. The Mark Lee Team has the connections around town to make things happen, and do more than just list your property. They are full time, professional real estate agents; you’ll know the difference when you meet them.
