If I don’t have children, why should I care about a community’s schools?
Even if you don't have school-age children, schools matter to almost everyone. A 2013 realtor.com® survey of nearly 1,000 prospective homebuyers showed that 91% said school boundaries were important in their search. The same study found that half of homebuyers are willing to pay more than their budget, and more than half would give up a bedroom or garage to get into the right school. Homes in better districts tend to enjoy more price stability and sell more quickly than homes in less desirable school districts. At beverly-hanks.com, each home listed for sale is linked to each school's report card as reported by the independent website education.com.

Mark is truly a wonderful agent. He listened to all of our needs and exceeded all of our expectations. He is down to earth and extremely patient. He did not try to steer us into a higher price point -- he worked within our price point and went out of his way for us on numerous occasions. Both of us felt incredibly comfortable with him. Once we selected our home, he efficiently moved us through all aspects of the close. I wish that all agents had the integrity that Mark possesses -- he was as genuine and honest as you can get. I'd highly recommend him to all seeking a home in the area.

The final property on Lousiana Ave. was the perfect one! Mark's attention to detail was unfailing during the entire process. He was a major reason that this purchase was not as stressful as it could have been!
