Mark LaGrande is awesome – period. I started my home buying journey with low credit and a concern about whether or not I will be able to qualify for a home. Mark said, “don’t worry I got you” and from then, on he was with me every step of the way from building my credit to signing the papers for my new home a year later. Mark is patient with you through the entire process, while not just being a realtor but a teacher as you learn new things about credit management and the entire home buying process which makes it easier to understand what’s going on. It’s a blessing to have such an understanding Christian, husband, father and friend walking with you through the stressful home buying process and I wouldn’t want it another way. Thank you Mark for the teachings and beautiful HOME!!!!

In 2013 we used the services of Mark LaGrande as our real estate broker while looking for a new home. The service provided was exceptional as he guided me through the process of buying a new home. He meticulously reviewed documents, assisted in finding the perfect lot, explained building options, and provided recommendations based on my needs. We were very happy with the home buying process from finding a lot through financing and building a new home. I have consistently recommended Mark LaGrande to friends I know without any reservations.

As new residents to Fayette County in Georgia, Mark made this transition from New Jersey to Georgia very easy for us. He was patient with us and a great listener. With his in-depth knowledge and resources, we were able to pick a prime area for our family with a great school system. My family and I are extremely happy with our new home. Everyone I met at Countywide Real Estate Inc. were great I would strongly recommend Mark and his team again and again.

Jenice was great and very eager to learn about me and my family’s needs. She offered great insight and advice which made the home buying and selection process easier. She took care of all the details and I didn’t feel overwhelmed. I will tell all my friends to use Jenice at Countywide Real Estate when they purchase their next house.

Mark LaGrande goes above and beyond being a realtor, he is a true friend that cares about your needs and keeps your best interest at heart! Our experience with him was amazing, and I would recommend him to anyone out there that wants a top agent representing them!
– Charles G.
We looked at over 30 homes until we meet Mark and after just one showing he helped us buy our first home. He knew exactly what we were looking for.
– Andrew M.
Mark was very professional and always had our best interest in mind. We never felt pressured and he listened and answered all our concerns and questions. The purchase of our new home went very smoothly because of Mark. We really trust Mark and would never consider using another realtor.

Imagine moving to a place where you know no one and know nothing about anything. Seriously, that was my wife and me after moving from Westchester, N.Y to Atlanta and being completely unfamiliar with southern Metro-Atlanta. I’d used two different agents before finally meeting up with Mark. That’s all it took. He was literally always a phone call away and “had our back” throughout the entire house-buying process. He is prompt, honest (yeah, there were some things we didn’t want to hear – but had to), reliable, knowledgeable, and the dude has connections everywhere! Not sure what else anyone would look for in an agent.

My wife and I couldn’t have been happier with Mark serving as our broker for the home we purchased. To say he added value is an understatement. If you can hire Mark, you would be crazy to hire someone else. He was professional, knowledgeable, honest, trustworthy and the opposite of pushy. From beginning to end, he provided the highest level of service, and we felt that he truly had our best interests at heart. He was our strongest advocate throughout the entire process, including during the closing, and even for our renovations after closing. He had more knowledge, experience and connections than anyone else we encountered while buying our home (including the bankers, the seller’s broker, the attorneys and the contractors). And he was a joy to work with. We usually don’t write these reviews, but had to here because Mark went above and beyond for us.

If you are looking for a kind, genuine, hardworking, and dedicated realtor than you must contact Mark LaGrande. Mark brings so much to each showing. His knowledge of school districts, town amenities and overall town atmosphere was spot on. He truly guided us through every step of the process. His patience with our hectic schedules and our 3 young children in tow at the showings was beyond our expectations. As you can see, we highly recommend Mark LaGrande.

I recommend anyone considering purchasing or selling a home in Metro-Atlanta to partner with Mark. His knowledge of the market and follow-through is bar none. He stayed with me every step of the process while I was selling my home in North Carolina and trying to purchase in Metro-Atlanta at the same time. His guidance didn’t end after the closing as he provided a network of people and information about the area including schools and services. Mark is very honest; he and his team will work very hard to help you with the entire process.
– Robert B.
The best! Mark and his team are extremely knowledgeable about everything related to the purchase of a home, down to home renovations and contractors. They were totally professional, very patient, and really advocated for me as I ultimately found and bought the perfect house in a challenging market. You cannot do better than Mark and Jenice! Don’t even think about another brokerage team if you want to get the house of your dreams!
– Corey L.
Mark is extremely knowledgeable of the Fayette county area and the housing market in general. He promised me he would find what we were looking for and he came through. Not only did he negotiate a great deal on the home we purchased, but even helped me negotiate the sale of my home in Florida, in which he was not getting a commission on. He’s straightforward, responsive and personable. He won’t push or rush you into buying anything, especially if he knows it’s not right for you. He’s great at what he does.
– Diane R.
Mark helped my husband and I buy our new home. He was very easy to get in touch with and always responded to messages very quickly. Mark is very knowledgeable in terms of house and property maintenance, so he was able to point of both good and bad things in all the properties we viewed. When we did find the perfect house, Mark was genuinely excited for us and made sure the rest of the process go very smoothly. We would strongly recommend Mark to anyone interested in purchasing a home.
– Shelonda C.
Mark helped us find our home almost a year ago. It was a long, stressful process, final count on homes seen was 75? but Mark was always patient, knowledgeable and made us feel like we were his only clients. He always listened to our concerns and even reminded us of them to keep us from making the wrong choices. He is the real deal and we feel lucky to know him! I would recommend him first and hands down to anyone looking for a new home. Thanks Mark!

Buying a home can be the most aggravating and depressing experience individuals and couples will ever have to endure. However, this was not the case when my wife and I purchased our first home just a few months ago. Without hesitation, we can say that Mr. LaGrande and his team are NOTHING short of amazing!! Their knowledge, professionalism, and experience are second to none!! Mark, Jenice, and the gang walked us through every part of the process. Not once did they put the pressure on and convince us to “settle.” If we had to do this again, Mark would be the FIRST person we’d call. If you’re interested in purchasing a new property or contemplating the sale of your house, look no further.
– Antonio L.
We can’t say enough great things about Mark and his team! He is extremely intelligent and knows the real estate market inside and out. Mark pays incredible attention to detail and points out things in homes that other realtors never considered. He is very methodical and takes a very sensible and logical approach to the process. He is also very in tune to the softer side of the business. He really got to know us and helped us work together toward finding potential buyers for our home that were a right fit. His depth of knowledge of Metro-Atlanta real estate is just incredible. He is absolutely a phenomenal agent. If you have Mark as your realtor, rest assured: you truly have lucked out.
– Shirley T.
Mark is absolutely the most attentive and professional agent we have ever worked with. He and his team are among the most thorough and dedicated teams you can work with and literally were involved every step of the way. Lastly and very importantly his ethics and integrity are unmatched.
– Timothy S.
Mark is an expert. He lives and breathes the real estate market and seems to have all the inside scoop. He gave us great advice, was very straightforward and when he gave us information, it was spot on. He is extremely efficient, answers or returns calls very quickly and if he doesn’t have an answer to a question, he will get it ASAP. He made the process a breeze. I really can’t say enough about him, if my husband and I have any further real estate needs, he is the first person we will call!

I knew before jumping into the home buying process that we wanted to use Mark LaGrande. He has a rock-solid reputation for being the best in the area, and we knew that the buying process could be extremely competitive and challenging due to low inventory in the neighborhood we wanted. Mark made sure he understood exactly what we were looking for in terms of aesthetics, functionality, and financial affordability. He is professional, attentive, and very knowledgeable about the Metro-Atlanta real estate market. If I had to move again (which we won’t be anytime soon since Mark found us exactly what we were looking for), I wouldn’t use anyone else but Mark and his team at Countywide Real Estate. He gets the job done.
– Eric T.
We purchased our first home in Metro-Atlanta county and we absolutely loved working with Mark. He was knowledgeable, patient, responsive and made us feel very comfortable through the home buying process. We highly recommend Mark to anyone looking to purchase a home!

Don’t normally write online reviews but, after my experience with Mr. Mark LaGrande, I figured it was the least I could do. The guy is confident, professional, intelligent and has both the street smarts and common sense to get things done. He listens to his customer which is not always the case with real estate agents as we have experienced and pays close attention to detail. Do not be intimidated by his confidence though, he will get you what you are looking for and will work his butt off to do just that. He kept my wife and I updated with the latest houses coming on the market and was able to get appointments around our very busy schedules (nights, weekends, etc.) One last thing, Mark LaGrande did not disappear after he found us the perfect house that we wanted and could afford…. He maintained communication with us before, during and after the closing to make sure we understood what steps were taking place next, he was right by our side at the closing table with the lawyers and the guy even stopped by after we moved in with a house warming gift. Pretty darn good customer service if you ask me.

My husband and I bought our home through Mark, and we were extremely pleased with the service he provided. He never tried to sell us on a place just to sell it, but instead encouraged us to only buy a place if we absolutely felt it was the right fit for us. He was less interested in his commission and “closing the deal” then he was in our overall happiness and satisfaction, and we were very appreciative of that. There was never a time that Mark was unable to meet with us, and he was very flexible, and worked around our schedules, to show us different homes. Mark deserves his reputation as one of Metro-Atlanta’s top realtors. I intend to recommend that everyone I know who is considering buying or selling a home to give Mark a call.
– Kimberley H.
Mark helped us find the perfect house for us. He is very knowledgeable and responsive. Whenever I had a question, he would always return my calls/e-mails very promptly. He is very friendly, and I would highly recommend him to any home buyers out there. I have worked with other real-estate agents before, but he is simply the best!
