If you're buying a house, without hesitation I recommend Jonathan and his team. As complete newbies to the home buying process, Jonathan walked us through every step with patience and not an ounce of condescension. He's a genuine guy who obviously really enjoys what he does. He always made time for us and hustled. Our first bid (not accepted) was put together in about 12 hours when someone else put in a preemptive bid. Jonathan handled it all with grace and competence. He has great relationships with other realtors in the area which makes everything easier. In fact the seller's agent actually told us that he was the difference in us getting the house, the bids were so close the difference was working with someone she trusted. His team is also great. In RE transactions, "there's always a piano" (Google it!), and ours was no exception. When we discovered a gas leak during final walk through, Jonathan and especially his team (thanks Miesha!) stepped in to get it fixed and it only delayed our closing by 3 days. And his support hasn't stopped, even after closing. Jonathan continues to help us out with recommendations on everything from where to shop for furniture to which movers to hire. Work with Jonathan, you won't regret it.

We worked with Marks Realty Group to buy our first home, and we couldn't have asked for a better team or home-buying experience. We met Jonathan and Deanna at a beautiful property that they were showing, and we were struck by how warm, honest, and helpful they were as we toured the property and followed-up with questions. We knew right away that we wanted to work with them in the future, and thus we began our home search and buying adventure together. Jonathan and Deanna met with us in-person to better understand our needs, helped us identify homes that fit our profile, traveled with us to walk through homes together, and listened carefully as we sorted out the reasons why we did or did not want to move forward with a property. They also hand-held us throughout the journey, as we had many questions and uncertainties being new to the process. They were always willing to jump on the phone with us to talk things through. And when we identified our dream home, Marks Realty Group helped us put together the strongest offer to make it ours. It was a privilege to work with this team, and we would highly recommend them to others!

My husband and I first met Jonathan two years ago when he helped us purchase our current home. He made that process, smooth and easy, as a result when it came time to sell my mother's house, I reached out to him to see if he could help. He met with me and gave him his honest opinion on what was needed and what the good points (and bad points) were. We came up with a plan that worked for my family and had the potential to get us the most money for our buck. The people he hired to do the work were professional and reasonably priced. They were easy to work with and flexible enough to meet my needs. Before the house went on the market, Jonathan was working to create interest in the home. The house was on the market for less than a week when it sold for over asking price. I am sure that when my husband and I need to sell our home we will turn to Jonathan. Jonathan cares about his clients.

I should say that doing Business with Jonathan was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. He really loves what he does, and does it at the top professional level. His motto is: “I will always do my best”. And his best is something outstanding. Besides being a strong professional, Jonathan also has a great personality. He is very demanding of himself, accurate, Nice, polite, and witty. Jonathan has a great network, different teams who are also very good. He gave me suggestions that helped us to price and sell the house $25,000 higher than we originally intended. Not mentioning that house got sold within a week after we finished all necessary updates in a record short time. All in all I sold a house, Got a friend, and really enjoy the whole time while dealing with Jonathan.

How refreshing to find a confident realtor who possesses the ability to listen, think critically and truly be more interested in his clients than a sale. It was clear from our first contact with Jonathan that he is a master at his trade. His knowledge of the residential real estate market in Marin and San Francisco is encyclopedic. Furthermore, Jonathan’s attention to detail made us feel like we were his only client, an amazing feat as clearly his business is booming. Needless to say, Jonathan is not only a dynamic real estate agent but is also a dynamic individual who would be the first person we call for our real estate needs. I would strongly urge everyone to do the same.

- Jim W. & Joe D.

Let me just start by saying a review will not do any justice for the level of quality and professionalism these two have. We moved cross country for my job. Just to set the stage we had zero clue of the area. Jonathan and Tobias went to great lengths to tour with us, shows us the nuances of each neighborhood and guide us through the real estate market. We ended up getting a fantastic home in which there were 10 plus bids on the house. Jonathan was away in Europe on vacation and Tobias helped coordinate and negotiate with Jonathan on the phone while he was in Europe. Talk about client dedication! They truly are just wonderful people. Highly recommend them!

Jonathan Marks is a fantastic real estate agent! He was immeasurably helpful in finding us a house and helping us move from the East Bay to Marin. Not only is he fun to be with, kind, always friendly, he is thoughtful, intelligent, extremely hard working and always professional. It is clear he knows all the ins and outs of the complicated real estate jargon and rules and has real teaching skills that help make it simple and understandable for the buyer or seller. He is a great sounding board and listener, taking in all the buyers wants and needs and really helping them find the right house rather than just any house that works.

- Jana & Zak G.

I can't say enough about our wonderful experience with Jonathan to buy our first home. Jonathan's guidance and knowledge of the market was invaluable, and his suggestions on how to approach our offer truly made the difference in standing out to the sellers. I also appreciated his warmth and empathy for the overwhelming nature of being first time home buyers, and his ability to cut through the confusion and chaos with clear insights and recommendations. As a bonus, Jonathan's network has proved invaluable finding high-quality vendors to help make our home ours.

- Darcy N.

I love working with Jonathan. He represented us when we bought our home in 2008, and we were thrilled to use him again in 2019 to sell the property. He recommended a great stager, and has many resources available to make a house shine. We had a very fast escrow, and even though there were a few challenges, Jonathan held our hands and we sped through to the close. He is ever-gracious, unruffled under stress, and has a can-do attitude. I felt totally protected and calm throughout the sale process. He is a great agent! Thank you!

- Jan P.

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Jonathan from the moment we met to the end of my transaction! Jonathan is a warm, communicative and intuitive person. He uses these skills to assess his client’s needs and bring appropriate homes to their attention. Jonathan listened to me and showed me homes matching my criteria and more importantly he did not bring homes to my attention he knew I would not like or did not fit my requirements. When one home did come up that seemed perfect we charged in and wasted no time in making the offer.

- Steve C.

More than anything, we appreciate how Jonathan did not push us into anything but left the choices up to us. We couldn’t have picked someone better to accompany us on the adventure of purchasing our very first home. We are now very happily settled into a spacious and lovely townhouse in Terra Linda. As we meet our neighbors and enjoy the beautiful open spaces in the area, it is actually much more than we could have hoped for. We are so excited to be settled into such a wonderful place to raise our family. Thank you, Jonathan!

- Felix & Sommer S.

Tobias was nothing short of wonderful. We came to him with a tough task: help us find home in Marin that was in a good neighborhood and in good condition, with a tight budget and only 5% down. He did just that! He helped us navigate a 6 month journey that included dozens of home tours. But he never slowed down and always made us feel valued and respected. This was especially important as first time home buyers. If you're looking for help from a dedicated, kind, hardworking realtor, you've found him in Tobias Green.

- Peter G.

I used Tobias to begin exploring and ultimately buy a unit in the Mission, and I could not have been happier with the whole experience. He was 'on it' during the search, and once we found a place that was a fit, he was a huge help closing the deal. In fact, I would have saved myself some money had I taken his early advice to jump on the 'buy now' price for the unit. Live and learn, I guess. He's quick to respond, great with chasing down details, and is unfailingly positive in his approach. Highly recommended.

- Buyer

Tobias Green is a wonderful relator. He never pressured us to buy something we didn't want. He is positive, kind, knowledgeable and fun to work with. He made the process incredibly easy and enjoyable. He helped us find a house we absolutely love and managed to get it for us at a price we could actually afford. I would highly recommend Tobias to anyone looking for a relator. Also he works with Jonathan Marks who was also incredibly helpful on this journey.

- Hannah B.

The whole thing was so quick, and so flawlessly executed, it seemed too easy! Jonathan was incredibly supportive of our decisions, and his positive spirit and boundless energy made it all seem fun. We both really felt like we could trust him to steer us in the right direction. But he also really took the time to listen to what we said, and also to hear what we weren’t saying, figuring out what it was that we really needed. He has a gift!

- Meeghan B. & Colin K.

Jonathan found our perfect home several years ago. He was wonderful to work with, making everything as easy along the way as possible, and has continued to be a valued resource as he provides local contacts, reminders about home care, etc. I wouldn’t work with anyone else!

- Rapieper

Tobias was very responsive during the whole process. He was upfront and honest with our clients. We were able to fund their loan in 10 days! He is a pleasure to work with and I plan to refer him many clients.

- Darren P.

Tobias made my entire home buying process as painless as possible and easy to understand. He was very knowledgeable and easily and quickly answered all my questions.

- Makana

Jonathan was absolutely fantastic to work with! His insight and guidance along the way was unsurpassed, and we enjoyed every moment of working with him!
