I met Markus through a friend as he opened his own design firm in Los Angeles. Markus first helped me evaluate and design a townhouse I own in Westwood, how to best spend my renovation budget to make the place feel more like my home keeping in mind that it would be converted in the future into a rental unit. Since this time he is my to go-to person when it comes to home buying and renovating. He helped me evaluate properties if they have good potential and helped point out items of neglect maintenance and/or disrepair which I was able to use as leverage during my negotiations at property purchases in Venice Beach, Palm Springs and Playa Vista. I’m excited that Markus now will be able to help me with my buying and selling real estate as my agent too. He is very fun to go home shopping with. He makes me laugh and points out items and things I didn’t consider. Because of his design background, he’s also able to explain what rehab possibilities exist and if it’s worth the effort.
Markus is an easy-going, fun real estate resource to have, his energy is contagious! He escorted us with his now Broker Brok Butcher from Butcher Realty which he referred to us as he did not have his real estate agent license at that time. We looked at many different homes as my husband and I were not able to agree of what kind and style of new property we wanted to buy – larger townhouse or single family residence, ocean view no view and of cause the price. The only thing we agreed on was the area. We were not just impressed by Markus knowledge of the Redondo Beach property market but his genuine interest in our needs and desires. Markus is patient, extremely attentive, and always willing to go the extra mile. He also educated us on the pro and cons of holding on to our old home and converting it into a rental, just in case we may would like to downsize in the future. We know Markus through our kids which went to school together. He designed our first and 2nd home and we refer Markus to everyone we know is looking to sell or buy a home. With his design and real estate investors background he is able to answer many questions on the spot and he has a quick vision of what a property could look like with some work done. Working with Markus as Real Estate Agent or Designer is such a fantastic experience.
Markus saved me when I started having trouble with my contractors and remodeling my home. He ended up assisting me in making everything flow together. His intricate knowledge of construction and design made my home come together so nicely it makes me smile every time I come home. Since then I have asked him to help me to look at other properties that I have made offers on. Thank you for all your help Markus!!!
