I wanted to write a review of my experience with Mark Leone as our Realtor during the purchase of a property in Bonita Springs in 2021. There are three qualities about Mark that stand out. First is his deep knowledge of market dynamics and how he applies this knowledge as he guides buyers; second is his ability to listen to his clients and truly understand their wants and needs which enhances the purchasing experience; finally, he is one of the most honest professionals I have ever worked with.
Mark really works for his clients . Above and beyond expectations. I have worked with him before, and looked forward to using him again for this current sale. He is a professional ,educated realtor . Great follow through! Gets the job done ! I highly recommend him as a realtor.
Mark Leone was extremely helpful in our search and purchase of a winter residence in southwest Florida. He was knowledgeable about all aspects of real estate, which since we had never purchased property in Florida before, was very helpful. This included not only the expected insights to Florida real estate laws and processes, but also information to ensure our inspection was thorough and considerations for landscaping. He operates at the highest level of integrity and treated the deal as if it was his own. He was diligent throughout the negotiations and followed up on all open items, even after the closing was complete. I would highly recommend him for buying or selling your property.

People like you, who naturally go above and beyond, make this world a better place for all of us. Your care and concern for your clients happiness is self evident in everything you do. Working with you was the best decision we ever made. Finding someone who genuinely cares about people and making them happy, while providing a service, is so extremely rare these days. We are grateful and indebted to you and wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to all our family and friends.
Thank you Mark! We love our home!
Amy and Scott, Florida
A word of Thanks!
Before employing you I generally held Realtors in low regard. You completely changed my mind about at least some Realtors.
You proved to be the best I could have hoped for to sell my sisters home in Bonita Springs and I would recommend you highly to anyone wishing to buy or sell in the Naples FL area.
You know area market values, work well with competent contractors, you are a stickler for detail and you helped me every way you could to get a fair price for her property. Above all though you earned my respect and trust in the very professional way you did your job. You truly are a top flight and trustworthy Realtor doing your very best for your client and I thank you very much and wish you well in your future endeavors.
Mark helped us purchase a condo in Bonita Springs, FL. He saved us money on the purchase, arranged for all of inspections at half price and arranged for compensation for deficiences not resolved by the seller. Mark kept us up to date on all issues during the process. This was all done despite dealing with a very difficult selling agent. We would highly recommend Mark-very honest and hardworking.
Robert and Katherine, Nova Scotia, Canada
Mark is a very dedicated Realtor and extremely hard working. He's very knowledgeable about locations and property values. He helped us to sell our home in a timely manner and he helped us to find our beautiful home we have now. It's our pleasure to recommend him to anyone looking for a trustworthy Realtor who knows how to get the job done.
Chris and Athena, Illinois
We have purchased 2 home and sold 1 home with the help of Mark. He was very attentive and knowledgeable throughout all our transactions and would recommend him to anyone looking to make a purchase in the Bonita Springs/Estero area.
Nick and Marilyn, Delaware
We enjoyed working with Mark to buy our condo and feel he is very knowledgeable about various communities in the area. He worked with us to find a property that we are very happy with and has continued to be a helpful resource in assimilating to the community. We would DEFINITELY use Mark in the future and would highly recommend him-we consider him a true friend. One last and important note is that we relied 100% on Mark's judgment as we purchased the property sight unseen and have not been dissatisfied.
Don and Ruth, Pennsylvania
Just a few words about our experience with Mark. We went to the Bonita Springs area to look for a second home. We had no idea what the marketplace was like or where to start. And, we had no Realtor. Just by chance we contacted Mark's office on a Friday afternoon. I realized we must have appeared as less than a great prospect. But, to our surprise, Mark met with us, listened to our thoughts, did some research, and met with us the next morning.
We bought a house before leaving that week. Without his care, skill and judgement, things would not have gone as well, if at all. We strongly recommend Mark Leone as our Real Estate Professional.

"Mark Leone left no stone unturned as we searched for our Florida property and he stuck with us through every possible wrinkle in the offer and buying process."
Pat and Larry, Massachusetts
Mark was very helpful and patient. He showed us well over 30 homes. We were commuting from the east coast, and he was very accommodating with our schedule. He is honest and wants to make sure his customers are happy. His prior experience in construction was particularly helpful in figuring out which renovations might be feasible. When there was a glitch on our walk-through, he gets full credit for resolving it as we wanted.
Zarie and Bill, Florida
I want to tell you how pleased we continue to be with the service and genuine thoughtfulness that we have received from Mark Leone. During the past 45 years, my wife & I have bought and sold many properties but we have never experienced a real estate agent who was so genuinely & unselfishly dedicated to his clients. We live 1200 miles from Bonita Springs so we could not be present during much of the purchase process for our condominium but he has been so thorough in his role as our representative and so very protective of our interests, that we were able to close this deal from a distance because of the confidence that we had in Mark. Throughout the entire process, Mark's thoroughness was what made it work. Mark has been totally committed to making sure that we, as his clients, received the best possible treatment.
Mark Leone is a very rare commodity in today's business world......honest, sincere, thorough, dedicated and caring......an unusual and unbeatable combination.
Bob & Jan, Illinois
We both would like you to know how much we appreciate your efforts in securing the purchase of our property in Bonita Springs. As non US residents, we were delighted with the advice you offered us on both location and type of property we should consider. When you eventually found the great bay front property that we now own, we were amazed at the amount of time and effort you spent to ensure we got a great deal and that there were no nasty surprises since we had no knowledge of the checks and paperwork involved in America. Your expert advice was highly valued from start to finish of the transaction. We both would recommend you to friends, family or anyone else looking to purchase a property in Florida. Once again, thank you so much.

We are writing this letter to inform you of the outstanding service that was provided by our real estate agent Mark Leone. We worked with Mark closely over several months and he was always professional, timely and served only our best interest. Whatever questions we had were always answered truthfully by Mark and he often went far and beyond our expectations. Mark would find out any information we needed and responded to our questions and concerns in a timely manner. Because of the excellent service he provided we bought our home at the end of May and are extremely happy with everything.
Mark did an outstanding job for us and we will definitely recommend him to all of our friends when they need a real estate agent. You should be very proud of knowing that you have such a valuable asset working for your company.
Bob and Ronda, Nebraska
Mr. Leone was very helpful in giving us the understanding of buying in the US as a Canadian buyer. He went above and beyond what you would expect from a real estate broker would do. I would highly recommend him to anyone with no reservations.
Mike and Karen, Ontario, Canada
This letter is written to highly recommend Mark Leone as a Realtor. My family & I came to Naples, FL looking for a seasonal second home to invest in. Mark spent a lot of time talking with us over the phone and via email in an effort to determine our home criteria before arriving. In every home we went into, Mark took the time to give us advice and professional input on positives as well as negatives of each home. Through his guidance, we were able to find our dream cottage home (in the Moorings) in Naples, Florida.
Mark was very knowledgeable of the Naples real estate market. You could tell that he loved his job because he was professional, honest, personable, and available to help whenever we needed. Mark truly strives to please his clients.
Tim and Shauna, Colorado
I would like you to know without the skill and determination of our agent, Mark Leone, the sale of our home would never have closed. Mark was an outstanding agent, from start to finish. He guided us into pricing the property right in today's market. He advised us on how to best showcase our home, and dealt with those that looked at the house in a very professional manner.
We have happily moved to Tennessee into an excellent home, and much of that happiness is due to Mark Leone. You should be happy to have him connected to your firm.
David and Mary, Tennessee
We want to thank you for your efforts and patience during our search for a condo in Bonita Springs. Our purchase in the Colony suits us perfectly. Over the years we have worked with numerous real estate agents and by far you exhibited the characteristics of the ideal buyer's agent. You worked tirelessly at finding a unit that best matched for our needs. Additionally, you took ample time to be sure that we saw many, many units for us to get a good sense of the market. Your focus was clearly to find us the desired unit and not to push us into a purchase just for the sake of making a commission. You were very much customer focused and your efforts were much appreciated.
Additionally, during the contract negotiation and closing you clearly were looking out for us and completely won our trust that you had our interest in the forefront.
At this time we are planning to enjoy our second home in Florida and should our plans change in the future to re-sell our unit you will undoubtedly be our only agent that we would contact. I have already recommended you to our friends and will continue to do so in the future.

To whom it may concern:
Mark Leone, a real estate agent with Premier Sotheby's International Realty. worked with us in the sale of our property in Bonita Bay. We were very satisfied with Mark. He is very knowledgeable in the real estate market.
As well as being a professional, we found him to be a very caring person and did everything to help us with the sale of our property. If I decided to buy property again in Florida, Mark would be my choice to work with in finding the right piece of property and I would recommend him to anyone else looking for a real estate agent to help them.
Jackie and I would like to thank you for the tremendous service you provided us in searching and eventually purchasing our vacation home in Naples. Being from Canada and not familiar with the Real Estate market and the process in the US, we put all of our trust in you and along with being highly recommended you represented our interests beyond our expectations. With your hard work ethic, professionalism, honesty and your ability to go above and beyond the call of duty it was certainly a pleasure to deal with you. In this day and age these attributes are a scarce commodity and it is for this and all of your attributes that we would not have any reservation in recommending you to anyone looking to purchase real estate in Florida. Thank you again Mark.
John and Jackie, Ontario, Canada
Mark Leone was our real estate agent on our recent successful sale of our waterfront home in Bonita Springs, Florida. Mark was very professional, prompt, courteous, and a pleasure to work with. We would highly recommend him for any of future real estate needs.
In our opinion, Mark went above and beyond what is normally expected of an agent. He makes a personal commitment to a situation and treats it as if it were his own. We highly recommend him to anyone who is going to purchase property. He is conscientious, caring, patient, attentive, committed, trustworthy, thorough, honest and hardworking. We are so grateful to have had Mark as our agent and commend Premier Properties for employing someone of such esteemed character.
Tom and Anne, Rhode Island
Mark Leone was referred to us by our local Realtor.
Throughout our dealings, we found Mark to be extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate. He did not hesitate to assist us with a broad range of matters that arose from our real estate transaction such as resolving issues with a variety of 3rd parties, general research in order to respond to our inquires, reviewing documents, and most importantly representing our interests as purchasers in the negotiations with the selling agent.
In our view, Mark is trustworthy, ethical, and professional Realtor and we would not hesitate to recommend Mark to other potential clients in the future.
John and Leila, Ontario, Canada
I just wanted to tell you how very nice it was to deal with you on the sale of my house. Considering that I did not have it on the market, and had no intention of selling and moving for quite a while, I would say that you performed a real feat ! Through your efforts you were able to line up the customer, who only saw it once and decided on the spot to buy it. And through your powers of persuasion there was almost no quibbling on the price, plus no mortgage contingency ! In today's market, all of the above is virtually unheard of I would think.
Thank you again for all the extra effort you put in to this going through smoothly, and for being so patient and readily available to me during this time. You really deserve to be the very successful realtor that you are.
Thank you again Mark.
We spent almost four months working with Mark Leone to purchase a vacation home in Estero, FL. The home was a foreclosure and we had no idea what we were getting ourselves into working with Fannie Mae. Mark went way beyond his obligations to us in order to unravel the web of addendums and cancelled closings that we experienced. He wrote numerous letters and made phone calls on our behalf. He was just as frustrated as we were, if not more.
During that time and now, we consider Mark a friend, not just our Realtor. He is the ultimate professional. He never failed to return a phone call or do anything we asked of him. Even after the closing, he calls and asks how we are doing and how our plans are going for the home.
I would recommend Mark to anyone who is looking for an excellent Realtor. He proved to us that he really works for his clients. Ours was not an expensive home but Mark gave us all his efforts, which proved to us he really cares about his clients. You can't do any better than to hire Mark to help you find a home.
Karen and Tony, Illinois
Mark Leone who works for Premier Sotheby's International Realty was engaged by us to sell our waterfront Gulf access family home in Bonita Springs, FL. We all realize house selling can be frustrating and time consuming. We had several other Realty companies representing the house prior to Mark, with no real response. Mark took over and immediately started showing the house, developed a beautiful flyer for us and kept the sign box filled with fliers for potential buyers. He is an aggressive, assertive kind of guy, that gets the job done. I was impressed by his professionalism and his dogged determination. I would hire him again in a minute.
Thank you, Mark !
Jack and Cathy, Indiana
To Prospective Home Buyers: This message comes to highly recommend Mark Leone to serve as your Realtor. You will be glad you did.
Mark was our Realtor representing my husband and I recently when we purchased a home in Pelican Landing. We felt very fortunate to have Mark on our side. In a very professional manner, Mark could not have represented us or helped us more throughout the entire process. He led us through each step of the process from negotiations to meeting us at our home to give us the keys after our closing. Mark has even called and checked in to see if he could help us since our closing.
Please feel free to call us if you would like any further information. Mark has our phone numbers.
Leeann and Jim, Indiana
We purchased our Florida home from Mark and we were both pleased to work with Mark and appreciate his knowledge in the real estate market in the area. We would highly recommend Mark and if we were to purchase again or have friends looking to purchase, we would call Mark.
