Mark was GREAT to work with. He made every phone call experience very pleasant and did not make it feel like a business call whatsoever. He went well beyond my expectations in answering question or concerns, and never made me feel like I had to rush in making any decisions. I would and will recommend him for reference to anyone I meeting looking to for a loan. At the end of our transactions, Mark will make you feel like you want to invite him over to your house for your next cookout!!
Mark Strickland is friendly, reliable, honest and very knowledgeable in his field. It’s clear his priority is to deliver an exceptional customer experience. I look forward to working with Mark again in the future. Thank you for being available and helpful throughout the entire process!
My husband and I recently purchased our first home and Mark was truly a blessing for us. He was very patient, knowledgeable and accessible. Throughout the whole process we were able to call him anytime with questions. He walked us thru the process from start to finish and was very professional. It is very obvious that he enjoys his job and making his client's dreams come true!
This is our second mortgage that Mark has completed for us. There is no one more professional in my opinion. After suffering a major financial hardship, we found ourselves in a credit situation that made purchasing a new home seem impossible. Mark was so professional the last time we used his expertise, we knew he was our only option. Mark laid out exactly what we needed to do in order to raise our credit score high enough to qualify for a new mortgage. We followed his plan step by step and within just 2 months, he was able to help us raise our score higher than expected. Not only did we get the loan, but we had a rate we never dreamed we would qualify for. If you need a mortgage, whether you have great credit or less than perfect credit, Mark will get the job done without any judgement of your situation. We can not thank Mark enough for all he has done to get us in our new home.

I have come to consider Mark a good friend and will confidently look forward to our next house purchase.
If I could give Mark Strickland more than 5 stars I would. Mark's has a vast knowledge of the business and pays great attention to detail. He has a great personality and a good sense of humor which was very helpful during those trying times for me. Thank you for that Mark! I am extremely thankful to have had the opportunity to have my homebuying experience with him. I can't give enough praise to Mark in helping me through my process.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many properties should I look at?

The total number of properties you may look at will depend on several factors, such as your budget and the housing availability in your area. In general, real estate agents recommend that homebuyers look at several properties before making a decision, but there is not an exact number. Most people look at 10 homes, at a minimum, so they can compare them. However, you may find the dream house with more or fewer searches.

What is the best way to search for homes?

When it comes to the best home buying tips, there are different ways to search for properties. Statistics from the National Association of REALTORS® reveal that 51 percent of buyers searched and found their homes on the internet, while 30 percent used real estate agents. Other ways to search for homes include asking friends, relatives, neighbors and homebuilders for help. A small percentage of homebuyers used newspaper advertisements and yard or open house signs to search for homes.

Should I get pre-approval before making an offer?

Although a pre-approval is not one of the required steps to buying a house, it can certainly help you stand out in a competitive market with many buyers. A pre-approval can show sellers that you’re serious and capable of getting a mortgage, so they may be more likely to accept your offer.
