"We were able to sell our house very quick..."

Mark was recommended to us by our friend and I can say that it was the best recommendation. Mark has a very impressive personality, market knowledge, great marketing skills, highly enthusiastic about his work and knows his game very well. He is very approachable and has a great team set up. The pictures his team took of our house looked straight out of a magazine.We were able to sell our house very quick and the team communication with us was impeccable. Overall, we are very impressed with the way Mark and his team has handled the sale of our house. If you need a realtor who can take away the stress from you, Mark Shaftner is the man!

"He listens extremely well..."

Our experience with Mark was fantastic. He listens extremely well and he quickly zeroed in on properties that were perfect for us. When we settled on new construction, Mark’s prior experience at a large, national builder we so helpful for us. I would highly recommend Mark.

"He gets you the best price for the home..."

Mark has been on a very long journey with my husband and I while we searched for our first home. Being first time home buyers, we had no idea what we were doing. Mark explained how the process works, what areas are best, and what features to look for in a home. He would always give his honest opinion on the homes we were looking at. He always made time in his schedule to show us homes we were interested in. He’s someone you can trust. Once you decide you found the house, he gets you the best price for the home. Having Mark as our realtor took so much off of our plates. We couldn’t be happier!

"He worked tirelessly to find us our perfect home..."

After talking about it for some time, my husband and I decided to get serious about buying our first home. We enlisted Mark as our realtor, and he worked tirelessly to find us our perfect home. He was available to us through the whole process, offering advice, answering questions & making suggestions. After a whirlwind search, we found our home & Mark did everything to make the process simple & painless for us. At times, I even felt like he was just as excited as we were! We are so thankful to have found & closed on our first home, and also to have had someone with such great experience & knowledge helping us on the way. We definitely recommend using Mark as your realtor!

"Professional, helpful and directed us through each step..."

We sold 2 homes and purchased a new one with Mark. Over the last 6 months I’ve spoken with him consistently several times a week. Mark and his team have actually made this a fun process. That is saying a lot for something that is usually considered one of the most stressful things in life! They were professional, helpful and directed us through each step along the way with solid advice and positive feedback. My parents home sold in three days and our home sold in less than 24 hours…….both over asking! And as a bonus, I’ve made a great friend! Thanks for everything Mark!

"Mark made selling our home a seamless process..."

Mark made selling our home a seamless process. We were on a tight deadline and he turned around all deliverables very quickly. Mark sold our house in 1 weekend for over asking price! He is phenomenal to work with because he is a market expert, he is always accessible for questions, and he is transparent (not to mention an overall great person). He went above and beyond throughout the sale and made sure we were comfortable and happy throughout the process.

Sarah S. & Seth B.

"He has a lot of experience in the business..."

Mark was a phenomenal realtor and we couldn’t have asked for better person to help us through the process of buying our first home.  He has a lot of experience in the business but he also brings to the table some background knowledge in construction which gave us confidence when choosing a home. He made the whole process seem effortless and acted as a liaison between the sellers, the mortgage company, and us.  When it came time to negotiate he also provided excellent recommendations.  He was a pleasure to work with and could not recommend more highly.

Helping Home Buyers & Sellers in Metro Detroit

About ME

When you love something, it makes it easy to do. At my core, I love real estate, and I love helping and influencing people. There is a lot of love in my life, and getting to sell real estate to wonderful people is a great part of it.

18 years. Crazy I’ve been doing this so long. Buying or selling a home is a huge deal, and being someone’s consultant through the process is an incredible honor. I take it seriously.

I tell people all of the time that $10,000, $20,000, $30,000 “swings” in the price of real estate happen all of the time. I pride myself on my ability to ensure my clients are on the positive sides of those swings. Real estate is most of my clients largest investment, and helping my clients get the highest return on that investment is the best part of my job.

It’s more than a house…

We make so many memories in our homes: A marriage proposal, a baby’s first steps, first days of school, holiday gatherings, game nights and dinner parties. Even the small things like the final episode of “The Office,” the first time you install a new light fixture, or the time you burned potatoes, all can end up leaving a lasting impression.

Our homes are where we live our lives, and that’s why I take real estate so seriously. It’s an honor to help people bring their dream of home ownership to life.

When you hire me, you get me and all of my 18+ years experience and knowledge so you can efficiently, effectively and peacefully navigate your home buying or selling journey.


I will be an expert in the locations I do business.

I make myself available and will be incredibly responsive.

A thorough understanding of the complicated process and detailed paperwork is of the highest importance.

My negotiation skills will be sharp and ever improving.

My focus will be on handling the complexity, so you aren't faced with stress or uncertainty.

I'm not looking for a sale, but a relationship that might last a lifetime.
