"Mark Baatz is a get-it-done agent who puts his clients first and knows how all this stuff works. You will not regret hiring Mark!
I have been looking for a house for a long time. During this time Mark has been very patient and continued to willingly show me house after house. I now have what I have been looking for!
Mark Baatz is an amazing agent. I met him on a rainy day when I was just “kicking tires” and saw a house at the lake that I kind of liked and about 6 weeks later I moved in. During the negotiations Mark ALWAYS looked out for my best interest and made sure that I was protected. The deal would have fallen through if it had not been for Mark’s hard work and professionalism. He always answered my calls and emails quickly regardless of how silly they were and he was always there when needed him. I have worked with many agents but Mark is by far the best.
I had the privilege of working with Mark Baatz as my realtor when looking to purchase a new home in the Chapin Area. With his knowledge of the market, I purchased the ONE he recommended for my family. I love our new home!!! I couldn't have done it without his guidance! Mark both professional and personable. He is diligent, responsive, and yet very patient with his clients. I would recommend his services to anyone!
Thanks, Jennifer Cannon
Mark is the consummate professional. As buyers we put this man through many trial and tribulations. It started with my wife and I deciding we wanted a particular house. Mark was instrumental in getting us a good price for the home. Then the HOA did not approve the house. Mark fought for us every step of the way until we gave up on the builder. Mark jumped right in and found us Magnolia Custom Homes and Scott Walter. Mark helped us get a good price, and helped us negotiate with the HOA. We will be moving into our home in the coming weeks.
Every other realtor would have told us there is nothing they can do, and would not have wanted to work with us any longer. Not Mark. This man stayed with us and fought for us every step of the way. My wife and I are proud to have Mark for a Realtor, and a good friend.
We recommend Mark Baatz unconditionally. If you want someone in your corner fighting for you, Mark is the Realtor for you.

Our work with Mark Baatz has been more than pleasant. He is very hardworking and answers all my calls and emails promptly. He is there whenever I needed him, even when I've asked him to show me 30 homes in 2 days. He never complained or lose patience with us even though I know at times we can be troublesome. He went above and beyond his duties in order for us to find our dream home. Thank you Mark for everything you have done for us and I will definitely keep you in mind when I'm ready to purchase my next home.
We also want to thank you (Mark Baatz) again for everything that you have done. And I will tell you that if I hear of anyone in the market for a home I will refer them to you. The attitude that you have shown and the class in which you have presented yourself are a reflection of what a great agent should be.

We would highly recommend Mark Baatz to anyone looking to buy a home!

Mark Baatz, I'm really enjoying my new home. The neighborhood is great and my location is great for getting around to my hobby with Classical guitar playing.
Thank You for all the time you spent, and knowledge you had!
Choosing Mark Baatz as our realtor was the best real estate decision my wife and I could have made. Mark went above and beyond to sell our home and help us find a new one. Mark never hesitated to do whatever he could to facilitate the success of our real estate endeavors. I recommend Mark to anyone out there who wants a realtor who is motivated, communicates well, and actively pursues his clients interests. Thanks Mark!

"I greatly appreciate the work Mark Baatz did on my behalf! I am LOVING my home!! Thank You Again!"
We can honestly say that Mark Baatz was more than pleasurable. He was so in tune to everything we wanted in a home, and made it his mission to get us comfortably set up. Mark is more than just our realtor, he makes it a point to still check in and to see that everything is going well! We would highly recommend working with Mark, especially if you're a first time home buyer!

Hey Mark Baatz,
I just wanted to say thank you for being a wonderful realtor. You made the purchasing of my home a Pleasant experience and you didn't let the other realtor push us around. Lol.
My wife and I were first home buyers and our experience with Mark Baatz was wonderful. He was very helpful showing us houses and suggesting different ones based on what we were looking for. He kept us alert on new listings through e-mail and promptly returned all phone calls and e-mails. We have been in our home for almost two months and Mark still checks in to see how we like our new home. We are very thrilled with his service and knowledge and would recommend him to our family and friends.
