     We have created a business philosophy that not only sells homes but makes people comfortable to be around us. We are not the team that has 50-100 listings. We will give each customer the same excellent level of service they deserve. We look forward to building lasting friendships with our customers (personal and business), and have the hope that those customers will be our best source of future business. 



     That philosophy that we created we live by day in and day out. We always treat our customers fairly and honestly and will never be pushy. We truly believe in a team atmosphere. We will always answer phone calls personally, return phone calls promptly, and be with you through every step of the process. We believe that great service as well as keeping to high ethical standards will make your home transition be successful.

What our clients are saying  

Working with Mark was a great experience! I was a first time home buyer and he helped make the process easy for me. He showed me as many homes as I needed until I found the right one, answering all of my questions throughout the process. He was not only very knowledgeable but also very personable! I would highly recommend Mark and his team to anyone!


~ Emma Ross

Mark did a great job of selling my home! My home needed some additional work but he was able to market it appropriately. We needed a quick sale and Mark was able to deliver! He really made the process as painless as possible.


~ Bob Hayward

Our experience was great, the team was quick to respond to questions and was always available when you need them throughout the entire buying and selling process. They are honest which is huge when you are making an investment in a home.


~ Anonymous

We had a terrific experience with Mark and Mark in selling our home in Chesterland (they were also our agents five years earlier in buying our house). They were honest, professional, and very knowledgeable about the local market and our entire process. They gave good advice to us about what projects needed to be done in order to sell our home and followed up with great recommendations of professionals we might use


~ Brendan and Heathey Daly

Mark and Mark were extremely accomodating to my busy schedule, and worked on very short notice for me. They never complained and always worked around my schedule, not theirs. I truly appreciate all the hard work and dedication they have to finding exactly what their clients' want and going to bat for them. Both Mark's were knowledgeable, professional, and straight shooters, that went beyond the call. I would recommend them to anyone.

I would highly recommend Mark to anyone looking to purchase a home. He was very professional, helpful, and friendly. I was a first time home buyer and he made the overwhelming process of purchasing my first home stress free. He was very informative and was patient with me and my concerns. Mark is a excellent real estate agent! I'm very happy with his service to me and the house I purchased!


~ Andrea

My wife and I used Mark & Mark to buy and sell our homes. Both Mark's were knowledgable, professional, kind, and were very easy and accomidating to work with.

“The Baughman/Schecter team is simply amazing. They were very professional and easy to work with in assisting with the short-sales of my estate properties. I felt very comfortable leaving all the details to them.”


~ Amy Papesh, Elk & Elk

“Mark Baughman recently represented us in the purchase of our new home. We enjoyed working with Mark. He handled our real estate transaction with a high degree of professionalism and attention to detail. He was prompt, thorough and courteous with all communications. Mark and his team completed our transaction within 21 days from our initial offer to exchanging the keys - which was 10 days faster than expected. We would recommend Mark and his team to handle your next real estate transaction.”


~ Dave & Lisa Egensperger

Our home was sold within 30 days of when it hit the market. The previous agent had it for 6 months. Near asking, always answered his phone, wouldn’t ever use another agent!
