What Others Are Saying About Mark

Most Caring and Helpful Destin Realtor

"Mark recently assisted my wife and I in the purchase of a townhome in Miramar Beach. Since we are located in Central New York, it made the purchasing process a bit more challenging. However, with Mark’s guidance and advice, we were able to meet an aggressive closing date. Mark was always available day or night to answer questions or provide information that helped move the process forward. Mark is the most caring and helpful Realtor that I’ve worked with. I would never hesitate to recommend Mark to my family and friends."  --Gerry (buyer of Misty Cove 210)

Truly Exceptional!

"As a practicing attorney, I have had many opportunities to deal with real estate agents. In my experience, most are conscientious and dedicated professionals. By comparison, however, Mark De Salvo stands out as truly exceptional. His experience and in-depth knowledge was indispensable to me as an investor trying to learn the Destin real estate market. He was always prompt in returning my calls and responding to my emails, guiding me through the process, step-by-step. Mark helped bring the transaction to a successful conclusion with careful attention to detail. Not only would I highly recommend Mark De Salvo to anyone in need of a Realtor in Destin, I intend to work with him again."

Informed & Personal Professional!

We like him so much we're sending him our daughter for her Real Estate needs!  Mark DeSalvo is a Realtor without peer. He is not only an informed professional who  goes the extra mile for his clients, he is also a person of honor, whose basic good humor makes working with him pure pleasure.
When we sold our small Destin condo, Mark gave us and our property the same time and attention that he devotes to his more expensive listings. I don't know how he does it.
Our Atlanta daughter has invested in properties in the mountains of Highlands but she is now ready to look to the beach.  She'll go straight to Mark.  I urge you to send your sons and daughters to him, too."

Went Above & Beyond!

"Mark DeSalvo is a very unique individual.  My wife and I first met Mark when we decided to purchase a condo in Destin, Florida, by phone over 500 miles away.
Based on Mark's integrity and level of excellence in how he dealt with all parties in acquiring our unit, a personal friendship developed that continues to exist today.  We have relocated many times at the corporate level, thus dealing with many realtors, none of whom stepped up like Mark.  He handled all aspects of our purchase with the creativity and accountability of an expert.  He went above and beyond when a personal issue would surface that was outside his area of responsibility to solve it for us due to the geographical distance between us.  If Mark handled it, we knew it was done and done right.  He eliminated the slightest chance of and unexpected surprise from beginning to end.
All negotiations throughout the process were handled in a professional and personable manner by Mark.  He never compromised his integrity and his word and handshake are his bond - more solid than any written contract.
We would highly recommend Mark to handle your real estate needs.  You will recognize Mark's expertise and total commitment to you as soon as you meet him! "

Wealth of Knowledge!

"Mark DeSalvo is the consumate professional. We have been lucky enough to be represented by Mark in both the selling and buying of condominiums since 2002. It has been one of the most rewarding relationships, not only financially, but personally. I highly recommend Mark to anyone just beginning real estate investment up to, and including the seasoned investor. "

Extremely Professional and Knowledgeable!

"Mark DeSalvo was the agent we used to sell our town-home.  He understood what my husband and I wanted from our sale and got us what we wanted very quickly.  He noticed mistakes the other agent had in the contract and had them corrected before I even noticed.  He was very professional and easy going, however he was aggressive with our sale.  The closing went very quickly (it took longer to make copies than it did to actually close).  Mark took care of everything for us.  I highly recommend Newman-Dailey Real Estate."
