"Mark was an outstanding agent. We submitted 7 contracts before one was accepted, we looked at dozens of houses. Mark's knowledge of mechanics of the house and his experience in the industry always made us feel like we were making an informed decision. At times when we were weary of the process, he knew us well enough to say that he didn't think we would be happy in a home in 10 years. An agent that is honest and has integrity, he's in it for the long haul to see you happy, not just the commission. Mark always took his time with us, answered all our questions (sometimes multiple times), he always was available and never pressured us. He's comfortable dealing with unusual situations and always advocates for his client. I would highly recommend Mark to anyone who was getting ready to enter into this crazy real estate market."
Bakers, Pataskala (Buyer) Wed, 18 Aug 2021 05:14:16 +1000
"Mark has always been forthcoming with information, friendly and accessable.
We started out with little to no experience with home buying. Now we have a home that is as close to a dream home as we could imagine. We almost feel like we hit the jackpot working with Mark. He has been knowledgeable, friendly and supportive. He explained everything so clearly and prepared us for every step. He has a lot of industry knowledge and it seemed like he could also be a tour guide of the entire central Ohio area. Everywhere we went he knew something about the neighborhoods, the demographics, interesting points and pretty much anything you would want to know about a place you could be potentially moving to. Knowing that he was sacrificing a lot of his own personal time, he was still there for us every day and at any time with answers and ideas. We really felt like he cared about what we wanted and needed and we really appreciated that. We feel that Mark really had our best interest at heart and he wanted us to be happy with the home we were buying."

"Mark Kraus did a fantastic job for us on this new home. He was crucial in providing ideas and input and current market conditions that all helped work out a great deal with the seller to get the home of our dreams. Mark is extremely professional and nose everything about each property and the area market conditions. We were very happy to work with Mark on the sale end I've already recommended him to several friends and colleagues."
Dave Matthews (Buyer) Thu, 29 Apr 2021 09:14:39 +1000
"We are moving out of the area and so my only regret is that I will not have the opportunity to work with Mark again. The entire process was improved because Mark took the effort to go the extra mile. We bought our home 4 years ago and sold our home with Mark’s help both times. If I did it again I would choose Mark every time!"
David Brown previously of Clintonville. (Seller) Tue, 06 Apr 2021 06:02:31 +1000
"Mark was extremely organized and set out a clear plan that I could easily follow in getting our house on the market. Happened on him accidentally by calling the office on the recommendation of an acquaintance but could not have done better if I had spent weeks finding the perfect agent. Sometimes it's good to be lucky!
Mark got the job done from start to finish. Since I was also dealing with taking care of my 93-year-old mom, it was nice to have someone taking care of all the details of getting a house sold. Also the consideration shown in the closing gifts to us was wonderful. They were perfect!"
Helen Cho, Westerville (Seller) Fri, 19 Mar 2021 03:12:06 +1000

"Mark goes above and beyond what is expected as a realtor. He is honestly and is always looking out for our best interest. We would never use anyone else
Mark is good at what he does. He is trustworthy and really takes his time to relay the facts in buying and selling properties.
Mark is such a good Realtor. We feel blessed to have worked with him.
Can’t say enough. Your company is lucky to have a trusted employee that does such a great job and represents your company in a professional manner.
Mark has assisted us in the purchase of a new home and the sale of a rental home.
Having Mark is like having a family member. TRUST, KNOWLEDGE, DEDICATION, GENUINELY INTERESTED and just a phone call away."

I felt like Mark truly went above and beyond when it came to helping us sell our house. He is a true expert."

He also volunteered with transportation if needed. He took care of some remaining furniture that I had not been able to take with me. Great guy!"

"Mark was supremely generous with his time, was a wealth of knowledge on the buying and selling process, and also was able to really go into detail about the condition of each and every home we looked at along the way. His ability to assess the cosmetic from the structural and larger problems of potential homes and his recommendations were very important to me. On top of that, he is one of the nicest humans I've met :-)"
Susan LIvingston (Seller) Fri, 15 Nov 2019 10:51:27 +1000
"Mark went above and beyond to accommodate my situation. Couldn't have asked for a better realtor. Not afraid to get into the details and jump in to assist in any way....including uninstalling a window air conditioning unit.
He made the entire process effortless for both me and my family."
Madeline Shields, Columbus (Seller) Sat, 27 Jul 2019 00:37:42 +1000

"Mark Kraus has been an invaluable resource in the purchase of our first home and now the sale of our first home. The time and care Mark has invested, not only making sure every step of the sale/purchase process has gone smooth, but the time he's spent mentoring and planning in and around the sale/purchase of our home with our family is nothing short of incredible. He's dedicated, caring, and a truly great realtor. His creative approach to every step of the home buying/selling process showcases his depth of knowledge, love for real estate, and the desire to treat all parties involved fairly. Mark's desire to build upon and maintain a strong market comes through in all of his efforts. He has become the bench "Mark" to which we will be comparing all future real estate dealings. We have in the past and will continue to recommend him to everyone.
King Thompson is supportive, professional, friendly, and homey. Just an overall great place. Can't speak highly enough about this office. The knowledge and experience runs deep here.
The individuals our family has dealt with throughout this process are like family to us at this point, I think that says it all."
Andy Miller Dublin, OH (Seller) Sat, 20 Apr 2019 05:47:57 +1000
"Mark Kraus is amazing! Above and beyond. I own homes in several states and I would (if I could) have Mark sell or sell me property all the time. Professional, gave us step by step details and kept me on track. All real estate agents would be smart if they took some tips from him.
All the above things and more. Very personable. He knew our needs and struggles and made it seamless. I can't say enough good things about him and can't find a negative thing in the whole deal. More agents need to be like him. He's a joy to work with and took the stress out of selling a home."
Dana Askew-Harris Columbus Ohio (Seller) Tue, 26 Feb 2019 07:56:21 +1000
"There are times when you would really appreciate and thank God that he assisted you to come across a perfect individual in life. That's what God made us feel like when we met Mark Krau. Words are not enough to compliment him. God had us meet with him and Mark took it from there. He is an awesome individual beyond being a real estate agent. He did a flawless job and was very professional. He deserves every compliments made on his behalf. Coldwell Banker King Thompson should be so proud to have an agent like Mark Kraus. I would recommend him 110% to anyone who is interested in finding an agent."
Bulent Kurucay, Virginia (Seller) Wed, 09 Jan 2019 09:10:51 +1000
"Mark was originally suggested by a close friend when my sister and I were trying to sale our parents home 7 years ago when the market wasn't as good as today he had it sold in about 8-10 weeks , so when we decided to sell our home with the in-law suit I knew that Mark would be our first choice to sell it for us.
He really does the work above and beyond most other realtors that I have dealt with , we had three other realtor before I talked with our friend. So in my opinion there is no one that can compare to Mark Kraus . He is knowledgeable and very positive and personable. Thank you so much Mark for guiding us to a sell. Dave & Becky Sligh"

Kathy (Buyer) Sun, 12 Nov 2017 21:54:20 +1000
"Mark Krause was the obvious choice from the first time we met. He was clearly knowledgeable and seemed to be in tune with what we were hoping to do. In addition, he was compassionate, understanding and very helpful. He went above and beyond what anyone would expect from a broker.
We sold the home we had lived in for more than 30 years: the home we raised our children in, the home my husband died in. It was very traumatic emotionally and Mark went above and beyond to make sure the experience was positive. He also was able to produce the very best outcome financially for the sale of our home. I can not praise his professional attitude, compassion and the outcome enough.
Selling the family home after losing my husband to brain cancer was very, very difficult. Mark made it possible, both in a business sense and in his caring, compassionate personal service. I would recommend Mark Krause and Coldwell Banker King Thompson unconditionally."
Patricia Ellson, Visalia, California (Seller) Sat, 11 Nov 2017 14:49:37 +1000
"Mark Kraus was referred to us by a friend, and we feel indebted to her for the excellent recommendation. We were first time home buyers, and Mark walked us through the buying experience with ease - and made it an enjoyable, low-stress process! Mark spent hours educating us as first time buyers, meticulously looking through each house and providing advice on contractual aspects of our buying experience. His professionalism, candid advice and vast knowledge of the real estate market was invaluable. He was always available to us, even with short notice. We appreciated his communication skills and timely responses. Throughout our search, we felt that Mark was our trusted advocate; he knew our goals and worked tirelessly until we found THE house we now call our home. We would recommend Mark Kraus to all of our family and friends looking to buy or sell! Not only do we have a beautiful new home, but we've gained a friend in the process."
Courtney and Andrew Gilbert, Columbus, OH (Buyer) Mon, 12 Jun 2017 02:43:37 +1000
"Mark did a great job selling my home, so I wanted his services to find my new home. However, I temporarily left him for another fast talking do little agent. I came back to Mark on bended knees. Enough said. Mark is remarkable. He knows neighborhoods. He knows and understands trends. He is a continual learner with a thirst to be the best and do the best. He is a great communicator and he takes time to learn what matters most to his clients and respects that. I can not say enough good things about Mark--he is exceptional."
Doyline Williams, Columbus, Ohio (Buyer) Thu, 27 Apr 2017 00:54:58 +1000
"Mark is an extraordinary professional and his attention to our needs was exceptional. I know anyone would be fortunate to have Mark be their agent."
Rodger & Janice Schellhaas, Columbus OH (Seller) Sat, 05 Nov 2016 06:36:06 +1000
"When I first decided to list my house we looked at several homes in the neighborhood comparable to mine. My son in law called Mark about one he had listed. During this brief conversation Mark really went over board explaining things. This impressed me and my family. When we first met Mark in person at my house he spent 4 hours with us and gave me the impression he would have stayed longer if needed.
The whole staff was very friendly and approachable
My house went through 2 previous contracts before it finally sold. I am 89 years old and have lived at this address for 55 years. This was a very trying time for both myself and children. Mark always was there to explain the process and calm us at times. This I find very reassuring that someone in this day and age will go that extra mile to satisfy a customer. There were times when the buyer wanted certain things done before closing. Mark personally volunteered to help. Now that is what I call "above and beyond the call of duty".
Through the process of selling my house myself and children became very close with Mark. Speaking almost daily with him. He never gave us the impression we were bothering him. Not only was Mark our realtor, but now a friend. It may sound bitter sweet but with sale of my house is a big load off my mind. At the same time we will miss not having the contact with Mark as we had."
Gladys M. Wiley - Columbus (Seller) Sat, 17 Sep 2016 06:43:48 +1000
"Mark clearly understood our goals and patiently watched the market for homes fitting our requirements. When we finally found one that meet all of our criteria Mark was thorough and extremely helpful in arranging multiple personal inspections as well quickly lining up a home inspector to inspect the property on a holiday so we could make an informed offer to purchase. Without his help we may have missed the opportunity to purchase our ideal home."
Rodger Schellhaas, Columbus, OH (Buyer) Sat, 03 Sep 2016 03:48:29 +1000
"Mark did an excellent job of suggesting minor improvements to get my house ready to sell. He also offered a few suggestions for workmen to accomplish some projects too large for me to tackle alone. As an out of state seller, his attention to detail for the care of my house prior to listing it and all the way through the closing was greatly appreciated. He's a star real estate agent!"
John from Chicago IL (Seller) Sat, 13 Aug 2016 08:27:26 +1000

"Mark's knowledge and insight is what moved my house to a closed sale. He knew how to price the house right and he understood what matters most to buyers so that I was not spinning my wheels on unnecessary fixes or cosmetic changes. Mark was a pleasure to work with and my best encounter to date with realtors. Mark knows real estate."
