"Mark made the sale of my home a very smooth transaction for me. His experience in the business helped in countless ways. We closed the deal in just over 2 months in spite of it being "off season" for buying."
- Sally Devine
Mark was great to work with. Very knowledgeable and thorough. He was very flexible with my schedule, as I was 3 hours away and only had certain times I could meet. I felt like I was working with a friend!!
- Jim & Dena
Mark was very easy to work with. When I requested changes to our contract timeline, or any other requests, he was willing to compromise and comply. He was quick to respond to phone calls, texts, and emails. I was kept up to date on all showings and feedback from the showings.

"Mark Kowalske listed and sold my two bedroom condo in Boyne City, MI Because of his extensive knowledge of the local real estate market and his many contacts, the sale went very smoothly. He was very hands-on, attended to details personally, and kept me in the loop at all times. I would not hesitate to enthusiastically recommend Mark Kowalske to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in the Boyne City area."

"Mark has an uncanny feel for the market. He insisted that we put our home, that was on a prestigious lake in Northern Michigan, on the market in February/March 2015. We thought it would not be a good idea because of the snow, bad weather and a frozen lake. He listened to our thoughts but it quickly became apparent that he was the professional. We had a buyer in April. If there were any problems, we did not know about it because Mark handled everything smoothly and efficiently so that we could continue on with the next phase of our life. Mark Kowalske will be definitely be our "go to" person for any future needs or wants. He went above and beyond our expectations."
- Mike & Claudia LaCusta
"We first met Mark in 1997 when he started helping us find our first lake home. He listened very carefully and intently for what we were interested in and all our parameters. Then in 2012 we decided to buy a different home with some new parameters. Again, Mark listened well and we are extremely happy with the new home he helped us find. Mark is honest, dependable, knowledgeable and caring. We would highly recommend him."
- Mary Hawkins
"Low key but very knowledgeble. This was the smoothest sale we have ever been involved with. The buyer was a realtor but asked Mark to represent them as well. He asked our permission and we agreed. The closing was so smooth and easy. I think he represents the best integrity in the business."
- Mark & Cathy Pumford
"Deciding to enlist Mark Kowalske as our Real Estate agent was certainly a most positive experience in selling our Boyne City property. Mark had excellent knowledge of the area. He worked very hard in arranging showings and ultimately finding a buyer that appreciated the property. Mark kept us informed at all times and did a great job handling all the necessary details."
- Roy & Phyl Mastic
"I have used Mark Kowalske's skills for almost twenty years. I find his business sense very good, and his knowledge of the marketplace exceptionable. You will not find a real estate professional that works any longer hours than Mark. He will earn your trust and ongoing business."
- Gary Decker
"Our experience has been limited to commercial property. Mr. Kowalske represented us as a buyer's agent to purchase commercial real estate and currently listed commercial real estate. Mark's years of experience with local planning and zoning and his many contacts in the community make him a valued business partner."
- David Leusink
"I have worked with Mark several times during the past 10 years. He helped me buy my cottage up north in 2001 and was a great help in finding the best fit for my needs and guiding me (a relative novice) through the process. I have also been working with Mark steadily for the past 18 months as I look for rental properties in northern Michigan. His knowledge of the area and his expertise in the real estate market is unrivaled and he is a consummate professional in his dealings with all parties involved in a transaction. I would recommend Mark to anyone looking for an experienced, professional agent who is a pleasure to deal with."
- Janice Murray
"I started working in a real estate office almost 20 years ago. Mark was my first broker. I lived through 3 brokers at the same office. Then moved to Petoskey and went to work for another broker. 2 years ago our company Coldwell Banker Schmidt bought the company in Boyne City that Mark works for and we are again working together. It has all come around in a circle to be back with my friend and mentor. Mark you are an amazing agent and a wonderful friend..."

I am writing to you today to tell you how much we were impressed with your work on selling our condominium at The Harborage in Boyne City.
First, you were able to find a buyer immediately after we gave you our listing. Then as things progressed, you were very prompt and professional in keeping us up to date on everything as it happened. This made the whole transaction a pleasure for us.
In fact, in all the property sales we have been involved with, which has been quite a few over the years, I must say that this whole experience was the best we have ever experienced, thanks to you.
Thank you so much for all you did to make the deal come to fruition as quickly and efficiently as it did. Your years of experience have certainly served you well.
I would gladly recommend you for real estate needs at any time. You were the one who made the experience a pleasure for us and I'm certain for the buyers, too. Thank you for everything. May your future bring you much happiness.
