This is a recommendation for Mark Wilkinson, our realtor. We interviewed him along with two other outstanding realtors in Utah Valley before selecting someone to represent our needs. We felt he was the most professional, personable, and knowledgeable about real estate in our market segment. He had contacts and strategies for marketing that seemed most promising. Both the photos of our home and the website were outstanding. All of Mark’s services were timely.
Our home presented unique challenges for the market. When a buyer came forward Mark was flexible and accommodated needs of both sides. He helped us through what could have been a difficult negotiation. We were very satisfied with the outcome. We enjoyed working with Mark from beginning to end and look forward to a continued relationship.

We want to thank you for your outstanding efforts in both selling our home in Alpine and buying our new home in Salt Lake City. Despite a very slow and difficult market in high value properties over the last 2 years your marketing and sales efforts produced an offer and subsequent sale on our Alpine home that we believe was fair and appropriate. You continued your efforts on our behalf even after the original contract lapsed and brought in the sale. Well done! As our agent in the purchase of our new home in the Mill Creek area of Salt Lake City, you did an outstanding job of understanding our needs, finding great properties to match those needs, and contributed greatly to the negotiating process and getting a great price on the property we ultimately purchased. It has been a real pleasure working with you and your team.We wholeheartedly recommend to anyone who would like to buy or sell a high value property on the Wasatch front work with you. Like us, they will be happy they did.

The purpose of this note is to express my delight and satisfaction with Mark Wilkinson acting as my real estate agent. Mark was instrumental in selling both of my homes in Alpine, Utah which were both well over $1,000,000. It is interesting to note, that I had previously listed one of my homes with two different agents, nether agent was successful in selling the home. However, after listing the home with Mark, and due to his various marketing strategies, showings increased dramatically which led to the sale. Mark possesses a number of qualities that I believe are key components permitting him to successfully market and sell luxury homes. First, Mark has significant experience selling homes in all price ranges, but in particular the higher price ranges in addition, he has the expertise of finding the right home for the discriminating buyer, matching both buyer and seller. Second, Mark has conducted all transactions with true professional assisting the seller and buyer with the highest degree of service. Third, Mark has the communication skills necessary to not only market the home but to close the sale. Mark has been the best I’ve experienced in the area of follow up; I was never left hanging wondering how the showing went. Weekly updates were really weekly. I would personally like to thank you, Mark, and your staff for a respectful experience and hope for your continued success in the future markets of real estate.
We are very pleased with the services Mark Wilkinson provided in the sale of our house in Provo. Mark was always willing to listen to us and let us help determine how to sell the house. We listed it at a higher price initially to see if there would be any interest. When there wasn’t Mark helped us determine when and how much to drop the price. When we had a multiple offer scenario arise, Mark again moved forward in the manner we felt most comfortable with. Mark helped us negotiate a transaction that we were pleased with. Mark was professional and knowledgable throughout the process. We would definitely recommend him.

I wanted to thank you for successfully marketing and selling the house I owned on Hubbard Circle. The sales price was just what we wanted, and the time it took for you to get it sold was much faster than I had expected it to be. My staff and I found your communications documentation and attention to detail were excellent. Handling a complicated real estate transaction isn’t ever easy, and with us being located in Price, the distance between us made the process even more difficult for you. Thank you for staying on top of everything to make sure it all went well. The fact we are so far away didn’t help, but you made it work.
Feel free to include this letter in your personal portfolio. I would gladly recommend you to any future sellers or buyers you work with. Obviously, if I hear of anyone moving into your area, I will recommend they contact you. Once again, thanks for the excellent service, and a job well done.
We have known Mark for many years- he is a professional man of integrity and his knowledge of real-estate and specifically the market in this area allow him to be invaluable asset for buying or selling a home or other property. In a market that is becoming more challenging, it’s a comfort to know that Mark’s experience is one of the best advantages a team can have for this transaction. We welcome the chance to discuss more about Mark with you and answer any questions concerning his professionalism, integrity and the effective service he provides.

Mark is extremely professional in his appearance, communication, reliability and interaction with clients. He is very courteous and friendly, helping everyone he encounters feel comfortable and at ease. Mark is honest, thoughtful and wise when giving counsel or making suggestions to help move his clients’ goals forward.
We listed a higher-end house with Mark and were very impressed with the steps he immediately took to find the perfect buyer for our home. He used an extensive network of internet media, printed publication and verbal communication to market our property to potential buyers. We appreciated his thoroughness in making sure interested parties qualify so we were only showing our home to legitimate buyers. Another great aspect of working with Mark is his accessibility. He always has time for us, no matter when we call or how busy he may be. We would recommend Mark Wilkinson to anyone looking for an assertive, fair and amiable realtor. He works very hard to make sure his clients meet their goals.

Tom and I wanted to thank you for all your hard works and efforts on our behalf with the sell and purchase of our homes. As you know, we have owned homes all over the country and have had many different experiences with each sale and purchase. Selling our Alpine home was a very difficult decision for us because we loved our neighborhood and had made many friends there. Since we needed a home that my mother-in-law could live in with us with few stairs, it limited our choices in the style of homes we could choose. You helped make the transition much easier for us by helping us see the many choices that were available for us. We appreciated your knowledge of the many areas and neighborhoods we looked in. We had made countless trips through the areas we were interested in on our own and thought we had seen everything available. We were surprised when you showed us neighborhoods on those same areas we did not even know existed! We also appreciated your knowledge of construction, possible problems, contracts, etc. The list goes on!
Thanks also for your patience with our millions of phone calls. I cannot remember even one time when you did not respond. That was so very much appreciated! We love our new home and want to thank you again for everything. We look forward to working with you the next time we are in the market.
-Tom and Janice Honeycutt
We can say unequivocally that Mark is absolutely in the top tier of Professional Realtors. His sense of client service and integrity is refreshing in this day and time. Additionally, Mark is constantly updating us on what is happening with our transaction and letting us know what steps we need to take. He is an excellent negotiator who truly represents OUR best interests.
-Ken and Mary Thompson
We came across a listing by Mr. Wilkinson and began using his services to find a home. It was immediately apparent that his knowledge of the area was far superior to anyone we had spoken with prior. He patiently worked with us as we perused the homes that seemed to fit our needs, His approach was unlike any other realtor with whom we had conducted business in the past. He truly wants us to have only which we wanted, not a close fit.
We could not find a home, but we found a building lot that provided us the setting we wanted. Unfortunately other offers were already on the table. Mr. Wilkinson quickly responded to the situation and contacted the other parties, quickly putting us together. His relationships with area realtors, market knowledge, and negotiating skills allowed us to procure our property below the other offers, and market value, all within 24 hours.
Shortly thereafter the real estate transaction was complete and Mr. Wilkinson’s technical obligations to us were concluded. However, Mark stood by our side as we navigated our way through a variety of issues dealing with the building process with the city and community association. The land transaction was completed easily, but only with Mark’s assistance were we able to successfully conclude our building permits, regulations, and contracts that were required to proceed with the building of our home.
Mark stood devotedly by us for several months as the process finalized. With his expertise and astonishing level of service we were able to move from Virginia ahead of schedule. We could not provide a higher recommendation to anyone, in the industry, that would exceed what we feel for Mr. Wilkinson. We would never utilize the real estate services of anyone other than Mr. Wilkinson in the state of Utah, period.

Thank you for your outstanding results in selling our house. You accomplished a miracle. We needed to sell in the worst real estate market in many years. You guided us in pricing the home accurately, aggressively sought buyers and closed the house for our asking price in a strong buyers’ market. You found an all-cash buyer who signed a contract with no contingencies! That is nothing short of a miracle (brought about by your experience and hard work). You were excellent in communicating constantly with us and you always responded promptly to our many requests for assistance with needed projects to make the house more saleable. As we were out-of-state sellers with a house in Alpine, you provided invaluable service in constantly checking on the house and being our local “eyes” on both the house and the local housing market.
It was a pleasure to work with you. We truly appreciate your responsiveness, creativity, energy and professionalism. Thank you for accomplishing what would have been impossible for other realtor to have done. I would not hesitate to recommend your outstanding services.
-Robert J Bluhm Esq.
Mark called us to schedule each showing and allowed us plenty of time to have our home ready to show. Mark came with every realtor or prospective buyer and answered questions regarding the property. He took excellent photos for our home and listed it on the websites so it showed well. Mark was professional in every aspect from listing to closing. In negotiating our offers and responses, Mark was knowledgeable and offered recommendations that protected our interests as the sellers. He was great to work with.
-Brad and Alice Barlow
We began working with Mark as we contemplated a move from our house in Houston, Texas to Utah. We found his knowledge of the market and understanding of our particular needs refreshing. Mark is a man of integrity with a sound understanding of the market that he specializes in and who keeps the interests of his client’s first and foremost. I would use Mark again without reservation and recommend him to any prospective client or business associate.
-Clyde & Shawna Redford
Many thanks for all the hard work you put into selling our house for us. You did all that you said you would do and more. You always make yourself available to answer questions for us and never hesitated in stopping by when we felt we need to talk to you personally. We feel that we received a good price for the house.
Because we had to move quickly, it was necessary to find a new home fast. You helped us find just the right home that suited our new needs. You worked with the sellers and negotiated a fair and reasonable price. We certainly would, and have, recommended you to our friends and anyone else that is in need of an honest, hardworking real estate agent and associates!
We wish to provide this letter of reference in order to let others know about the excellent quality of your work, and to recommend your services to anyone interested in selling or buying a quality home. You guided us through the initial preparations, the negotiations, and the final details. Your energetic and skillful work resulted in a sale at a fair price within a reasonable time, and we are well satisfied with the results. We appreciated your real estate skills and especially your many courtesies throughout the entire process. We would trust you to represent us in any kind of transaction.
-Dr. Melvin & Linda Stanford
Thank you for the help in the purchase of my new house. You were very professional in your field of expertise. Very knowledgeable. If you didn’t know the answer you would find out and let me know right away. You answered all my questions and even did a follow up after the sale was final to make sure the punch list was taken care of. You searched from one end of the valley to the other to find just the right piece of property for me and went to work on bringing the price down and negotiating the closing. Thanks again for your help. I would highly recommend you to my friends and family.
My wife and I first met Mark Wilkinson over one and a half years ago when we started looking for our first home. At the time we did not have a real estate agent. He just happened to be selling the house we were looking at that day. We were so impressed with his professionalism and knowledge that we thought it would be best if he became our agent. Over the next six months we worked with Mark to find our home. During that time he was so kind and patient with us. We put our total trust in him. He would even take the time to babysit (practically) our two year old so we could look at homes.
We also had Mark sell our condo. That was a very wise decision. We had no idea what to do but with his help we were able to see the things we needed to do to sell our condo and actually make money on the deal. When we purchased our new home, Mark took care of everything for us. The house needed a few things fixed and Mark made sure that it was all taken care of so neither my wife not I had to worry. Mark is the type of person to go the extra mile. He still has contact with us today and we have greatly enjoyed our relationship with him. When we are ready to sell and buy again, we would not dare to call anyone else.
-Dr. Steven McIff
I am writing this letter to thank you for providing tremendous real estate services with truly professional agents. Mark Wilkinson expertly handled our purchase of a new home and the sale of our old home. We had been working for over 6 months with another realtor prior to contacting Mark. This other realtor had been unable to locate a suitable property. We were referred to Mark by a mutual acquaintance and he located a great property on our first trip out. Mark represented our interests zealously and helped us obtain a deal that was satisfactory to both us and the sellers. We had a virtually trouble free escrow. Mark was a consummate professional throughout the transactions. We will be happy to refer friends and colleagues to Mark.
