Mark Barbosa was extremely knowledgeable and had answers to all questions and concerns we had. He was very helpful with suggestions as to staging and pricing our Father's home. He supplied valuable comps in the area allowing us to see the market values in the area. We would recommend Mark Barbosa to anyone as he is very friendly, kind, caring and understanding of specific needs. Excellent experience dealing with Mark. Thank-you Century 21 - Owen Sound and especially Mark Barbosa and Brigette. Tracey Hadley & Tammy Tennant

Mark Barbosa was a pleasure to work with while we searched for a perfect cottage for our family. It was no easy task but he never failed to show enthusiasm and be real with us. Mark was quick to respond with attention to details. The requirements were met to our list of "must have" dealing with a set budget, he did not fail to impress with our purchase! We would recommend Mark as your agent, for your perfect cottage or home.

Mark went above and beyond to help us find our starter cottage. He never made us feel rushed and I think he was truly excited for Gaylyn and I when we finally found our cottage. We will definitely 100% use Mark when we purchase our next income property.

This is the third broker we used to sell the property. My husband and I were more than pleased with the efforts made by Mark Barbosa and Mike Seiler and their team but also appreciated the extras they put into the process such as arranging to have the snow plowed and help with junk removal. We found this agency prepared to assist in many more aspects of the sale than showing the property to prospective buyers. I am impressed with the effort made by Mark Barbosa and his associates in selling my property. Throughout this process I have been known to comment more than once that “Mark and company actually were working at trying to sell our property”. It was a positive experience. I should note that I have brought and sold many properties over the years and Mark Barbosa and his associates by far provided the best service of all real estate agents I have used to date.

Both Mark and Mike are very personable and a highly effective professional team. They quickly understood all the parameters I required in getting this home to market. They were "on point" for meeting all the criteria that I needed to expedite the property. I could not have been more pleased with this team, and particularly Mark Barbosa who took the helm on this one and executed all the steps so thoroughly. Mark ensures that you are his priority and that he is working with you, for you. Many thanks to both of these fine professionals. Genuinely pleased. A true professional with a "down-to-earth" personality who gets results.

It happened somewhat by chance. I was inquiring on an Owen Sound property. When I contacted the listing agency, I ended up speaking with someone in Brampton that had no clue of the area. They said they would have someone get back to me from the local area and it was Mark that called me back. I was happy to continue working with any referral provided my needs were being met and they were. I was provided good advise by Mark to conduct a pre-inspection on the property during the offer process, rather then presenting an offer conditional of inspection. Mark coordinated all this on extremely short notice. The result of the inspection altered what I was prepared to offer, though still fair based on this new knowledge. It was good move and I am happy with what we negotiated. We worked well together and I enjoyed Mark's company and learning about the area. His background of how he had arrived in Owen Sound was similar to what I was going through which I also found added to us being a good fit. At final offer time, final details were discussed in the broker office and Mark's colleague Mike also participating. I came away with a firm sense they were acting in my best interest as I departed the city without knowing the final outcome until a few days later. Indeed they were. There was some back and forth (albeit small), but we stuck with our initial game plan and it worked. We worked well together. As I was coming from Toronto area each time I really needed to be productive each time. Also, since I had an imminent move date approaching after the sale of my Toronto property. I identified some properties to look at and we got the needed access of all properties under consideration. I know this is not easy to do when we have a short window of time. We also looked at many more properties that were not on my list, but valuable for comparison. The last trip was when we worked the hardest, but I came away with a great deal. It was all done in 3 trips.

Mark and all his associates were wonderful in the sale of my Fathers estate. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for advice, staging ideas and expert marketing. He took care of everything from removing a fallen branch to learning all details of the home. Sure made it much easier for me to deal with. Thank you so much Mark and all his Century 21 staff.
Mark is a friendly agent with integrity and his professionalism makes it easy to work with him. He will help and go beyond for his clients. He sold our home quickly and we are now enjoying our new home. I highly recommend you call Mark, to sell your home or if buying your next or new home. You'll be glad you did. Thank you Mark ...
