"My fiance and I worked with Mark & Evan to buy our first home, and would absolutely recommend them wholeheartedly. They were truly the best part of the entire process, and went above and beyond to make sure that we understood all the intricacies of the home-buying process and that we felt comfortable with every step. They leapt into action immediately when we reached out to them, and kept up a truly impressive level of energy and enthusiasm throughout the entire months-long process. Not only did they give us fantastic service as realtors, but their own experience with owning and renovating multiple properties meant that they were also great resources for a huge variety of questions we had, from how to re-finish floors to what red flags we should look for in a basement, to choosing the best wifi extender for a big old house, and many more. We would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone looking for two dedicated, professional, all-around-great realtors, and would especially encourage any first time buyers (like ourselves) to reach out to them."

A conversation in passing revealed that they were not only my neighbors, but realtors. It took Mark and Evan 13 days to have my building under contract, and it is taking me forever to write this review because I have not been able to settle on a starting point. But the only way to finish is to start. They were, are incredible. I liked them as neighbors, I love them as realtors! It exhausts me to think about the work that went into the sale of my property, and that they actually had other clients. It started as a thought. I was busy taking on other projects and my building needed attention that I no longer had the luxury of handling. I posed the question to Mark as to whether or not and when to sell the building. He asked if he and Evan could submit a proposal. What? A proposal? A realtor who had been asking about listing my property came with a contract in hand and zero information. But this review isn't about that person. I only mention it to draw the contrast. Everything that Mark and Evan did was beyond my expectations from the moment I mentioned capital gains tax to purchasing another property in another state. What wasn't a part of their proposal became a part of their work, simply because it came into being. They did extensive research to determine an appropriate sales price independent of comparable properties on the market, sent me information about 1031 tax exchange so that I would be prepared as I looked for a qualifying intermediary, presented an offer the first day on the market, worked with my tenants to ensure minimum disruption to their lives, brought 7 written offers and worked with me to put the property under contract by the eve of the 13th day on the market! That was the beginning. Because they understand 100 year old buildings and what goes into renovating, restoring, maintaining, fixing, and putting out fires where necessary, they were able to have conversations with prospective buyers without consulting me on every little thing. And because of our many conversations in determining a listing price, they had a really good idea of what would be acceptable versus what wouldn't. Even though they made decisions, they kept wonderful records of conversations and briefed me on what had been discussed, decided or needed my approval for push back or go ahead. Because I decided to inform all of my tenants of the listing, there were understandable concerns about the contract. Mark and Evan worked with me, and agreed that we would be able to find a buyer who appreciated or at least would accept my need to protect the tenants' home for set amounts of time: some finishing graduate school, getting married, and life that a 60 day notice to move or have rents raised would be unsettling at best. They also worked with me to list and show an apartment that became vacant because of the impending sale. That was insane, but it was doable because they kept me grounded and physically helped. Lastly, can you imaging expecting to close within days, being out of town, there being a cold snap and a thermocouple needs to be replaced because a unit has lost heat? Whether you know what a thermocouple is or not, you know what it means to need an HVAC person to handle acquiring heat on a day when many others are making the same type service call. I made 2 calls/texts. One to my HVAC person, whom I've worked with for over 25 years, and one to Evan. Before my HVAC person was able to return my call, Evan text me to say my tenant should now have heat! That was within an hour!!! The remarkableness of that was equaled by what the two men did for me daily. As they escorted prospective buyer, appraisers, and contractors through the property they identified the good as others wanted to point out the bad. They negotiated before the official negotiations began. Once the final report came, Mark only sent it once he condensed a 68 page document down to 4, clearly delineating what the buyers were accepting and what the buyers were asking me to contribute to repairs within said report. We agreed on final steps in the contract. They handled it, and still the process was not done. Because it was a 1031 exchange with multiple workers on the other end: an out-of-state realtor, attorney (as opposed to a closing company), qualifying intermediary (QI), loan officer, and insurance broker, I ran everything by Mark and Evan that needed to happen. They intern made sure that the closing company did everything necessary for the side to go correctly. A 1031 tax exchange is a federal program, and messing up there would be a costly mistake that wouldn't be undone. They did not receive additional money for anything that they did, but they did it all...and thanked me to boot. What a pair. If you have anything to buy or sell and have the opportunity to work with Mark and Evan, DO IT! You will laugh, maybe cry, but have the best possible experience during one of the most important exchanges in your life. They will alleviate fears and make it seem easy.

Mark helped us to pick our house, and he was very responsive to our calls and messages - we were still living in another city. He Video called us to show the house and even recorded a video of it! Thanks Mark.

Mark and Evan were amazing. From the first contact with them they were extremely helpful. We were buying a home from out of state and had phone conversations, email, and video chat with them to get everything worked out. When we came to Pennsylvania we only had 2 days to look at homes. They were so organized with a detailed plan on where we needed to go each day, information about the homes, and gave honest opinions on the homes we viewed based on our conversation's. We looked at 23 homes in 2 days. We ended up putting and offer in and purchased the home we wanted. They were all over the lending process and kept us informed of what we needed to do, and after a little trouble with our initial lender, they helped us get another lender with a much better interest rate. We would recommend them to anyone moving to the area.

Cannot recommend Mark and Evan enough!!! We moved from out of state in 2018 and were lucky enough to find one of their rental properties. They were very responsive and went above and beyond to help us feel comfortable and at home. The property was in excellent shape, and when minor problems would arise (as they do with a 100+ year old property), they were quick to resolve it. Because of their trustworthiness, friendliness, and evident expertise, we chose to use them as our realtors for the purchase of our first home. We feel so fortunate to have had their guidance in this process! They helped us understand and identify what we might prioritize in a new home, and showed us a variety of properties that fit the bill. Having heard what we wanted and knowing the Pittsburgh area very well, they even showed us a house that was different than what we had previously considered...and we LOVED it! We ended up buying that house and still love it! They were so helpful and patient in explaining the home-buying process and gave us advice every step of the way, even emailing us after the sale closed with tips and resources on how to make some of the renovations we had talked about. You don't need to look any further if you're seeking honest, responsive, knowledgeable, friendly landlords or realtors!

It is a pleasure to recommend and rate ReMax agent/broker, Mark & Evan McAdams-Templeton, since my spouse's and my experience with him was so positive. Mark is an excellent communicator with impressive local knowledge, expertise, responsiveness, and negotiation skills. A consummate professional and a wonderful person to work with: warm and pleasant, thoughtful, and with a great sense of humor--always a bonus during the sometimes frustrating process of house-hunting! I don't believe we could have found/had a better agent/broker anywhere, frankly. We give him our highest recommendations, without reservation, and would gladly respond to further inquiry relevant to his realty skills.
