What Clients Say
“We had an outstanding experience working with Mark! He was very approachable and easy to work with. We were selling a home on Madison’s near east side, and Mark helped me prioritize my list of “to-do’s” to focus on the things that were going to give us the most return on our investment. He advised to skip a couple of time consuming activities that I thought needed to be done and instead helped me focus on what would matter most to potential buyers. To me, this was such a huge help. The photographs Mark took of the house were gorgeous, and I was so pleased and impressed with the portfolio he put together. We did an open house the first weekend it was listed, and we had 3 offers by the end of the weekend! Amazing! He was very helpful guiding us through all of the pieces of the process as well. The house sold faster than we were expecting, and Mark helped us find a great house in a neighborhood we were interested in. He was a very helpful during the bidding process and ensured that we were getting what we wanted. We love our new home! My sincerest gratitude goes to Mark for everything he did to make this happen for us. I would recommend him to family and friends without hesitation”
“A shout out to Mark Gladue who has not only been our Realtor but also has become a good friend. We first got to know him when he was our buyers agent when we bought our house in Deerfield. So when it came to putting our house on the market there was no question as to who would represent our home and we specifically requested that Cartus allow Mark be our agent in the process. Mark recommended to us as to how we should show the house he then took great photos, listed it on Wednesday evening December 17, showed the house on Sunday December 21st during a Packer game no less and then received two offers from that showing on Tuesday morning December 23. Result – our home sold in less than six days on the market! We were stunned to say the least! So if any of you know someone who needs a buyers agent or need to sell their home in the Dane county region Mark is your guy. Thanks much Mark! Also thanks for the recommendation of our buyers agent down here in Austin! Chris has been doing an excellent job for us.” Jeff & Janice W.
“Mark was awesome in helping me to sell my home, which was admittedly in not great shape. He was so helpful that I had an acceptable offer with four days of the initial listing.”
“Mark was instrumental in helping us buy our first house 5 years ago and our new house. In both instances, it was his research and perseverance that got the deals done. The house we just bought was a short-sale with Chase. We had heard horror stories about short sales lasting for months and Chase being a particularly difficult lender to deal with. Mark cut through all the red tape and helped us get our dream home for a price we loved. He continued to make sure all the details were perfect, right up to the closing. If you have a chance to work with Mark, I strongly recommend that you do!” Annonymous
“Mark was great to work with, everything he did was to help me find a home that I would love and in my budget. In the end the house that I purchased is exactly what I was looking for and then some. We only needed to look at a few homes for me to find the one I was looking for because he sent me numerous listings to help identify precisely what I was looking for in a home. I would recommend him to anyone because he made this process as easy and pain free as it can be.” – Josh H.
“Mark Gladue is a very experienced, friendly, and professional realtor. He helped me to purchase my first home and to sell it five years later. He was very patient showing me homes that spanned the gambit because I was unsure of what I wanted. I highly recommend him!” – Matthew G.
“We were so lucky to make a connection to Mark and work with him. He knows the Monona market so incredibly well, both as a resident himself and Realtor in the Madison-area. Additionally, his aesthetic and personality were a perfect fit to ours–easy going, energetic, very responsive and funny! We always recommend him and we’d use him again if we were to move, but I don’t see that happening anytime soon!” – Jocelyn V.
“Mark was incredibly helpful. My home was in poor shape and he gave great advice for selling it at a fair price. The result was that I had an acceptable offer within 4 days of listing. He was also timely in his help after the initial acceptance right through to the closing.” – Steve
“Mark is an excellent man, he’s not “realtory”, he listens and cares and makes the buying and selling experience as enjoyable as it possibly can be. He’s got excellent negotiating skills and people skills and I feel like I can’t even say enough about how much you should work with him. He’s very easy to communicate with and puts the time in – call him now.” – Natalie & Mike
“Mark has helped me buy and sell 2 homes. He has sold both my homes for a good price in a very short time. I love working with Mark because he is patient and very responsive; always available by phone and accommodating for showing properties on short notice. He is really knowledgable about Madison and surrounding neighborhoods and it was fun looking at properties with him. I recommend him to everyone I know that is buying or selling a home.” – Megan
“We moved to Madison from Washington DC back in 2006 not knowing a soul, and Mark Gladue was tremendous in facilitating the move for us. Mark shared his good friendly nature and had a genuine concern for our wants and needs in a home, working along side us until we found the right one. I can’t remember how many homes he toured with us, but I can tell you he helped us find the right one, we’ve been here for 15 years — and Mark still takes the time to keep in touch. If you’re looking for realtor, you simply won’t find any better.” -Clint W
“Best in the Business!! Mark truly is the BEST!! He helped us buy our starter home (which we loved & lived in for 8 years) and more recently helped us find our forever home for our growing family. When looking at properties he had great information to share about the neighborhoods, school districts, amenities, etc. When it came time to buy & sell he explained every detail and made the daunting process manageable. He provided great recommendations for home insurance, financing, inspectors, home staging, etc. The total package! He is a true professional & just plain awesome!!” Veronica L
