Mark was recommended to me by a friend when I moved to Nashville from the UK over fifteen years ago. He helped my family find and buy our first and subsequent homes. We value highly his expertise in real estate matters. He cares deeply about his clients best interests and can be relied on to give good honest advice and exemplary service.

When Mark brings me a land opportunity, I know that he has already researched the market and the comparables to make sure that he is respecting my time and his. He has earned my trust and respect, and he makes the journey as much fun as the destination.
Past President of Middle Tennessee Home Builder’s Association
"Mark Lonsway was by far the best networking connection my family made during out transition from Indianapolis, IN to Nashville. In theory, the distance and separation should have made the process of finding a new home more challenging for us, but Mark's passion about what he does coupled with his immaculate attention to detail was overwhelmingly supportive. Mark earned our trust, which is the largest compliment I can offer him."

As first time home buyers, my husband and I were pretty green when it came to building our new home. We knew we had a lot to learn, but more often than not, we weren't even sure of the right questions that we needed to ask. Mark and team were an invaluable partner to us each step of the way. From selecting a neighborhood to meetings with the builder, from selecting paint colors to the final walkthrough, we couldn't have asked for better guidance.

We could not have been happier with our home-buying experience with Mark. Both personable and professional, Mark made the process relaxing and enjoyable from start to finish. Mark was a great listener and unfailingly responsive to our many emails and phone calls. We were and continue to be grateful for the much-needed guidance he has provided - including the home updating advice we've solicited from him many months after moving in to our new home. We have every intention of using Mark's services in the future if and when the need arises.

We were introduced to Mark long before we were ready to put our home in Mt. Juliet on the market and relocate to Franklin. But we knew immediately that he was the realtor we would call when we were ready to proceed. We could not have asked for a better experience, both in selling our previous home and purchasing our new home. Mark was extremely patient, always available when we had a question and very knowledgeable in all aspects of the process. What we appreciated most was his honesty in pointing out not only the positive aspects of homes he showed us, but also the negatives that we sometimes weren't aware of. Mark is a dedicated professional and we would highly recommend him to anyone buying or selling real estate in the Nashville area.

"Mark was recommended to us by friends when we were moving to Franklin. From the first time we met him, we knew he was the right realtor for us due to his knowledge of the market, expertise in new home building and his overall professionalism. We had to do a lot of business long distance and Mark was always with us and helping make the relocation process easier to do. Mark is passionate about his business and it shows from the beginning to the end. Thank you Mark for all you did for us. You are the best!”

We have known Mark Lonsway for over 20 years. We know him as a person but only just recently learned about how good a Realtor he really is. Mark handled the sale of our last home and the purchase of our existing one. His knowledge and professionalism was a huge help as he made suggestions on how to make our house look it's best for showing and how we could get the maximum selling price. He was unafraid to talk to us in very real terms making sure we had a thorough understanding of current market trends. Due to the great work of Mark and his team, we got a full price offer within a week of listing! Our sales price delivered an excellent comparison for our neighbors and Mark was an excellent guide through the negotiation process all the way to closing.
Mark's deep experience with new home construction was invaluable as we went about the process of building a new home. As we made our selections early in the building process, even though we had a very clear idea of what we wanted, his suggestions about door placement, insulation and other enhancements were things we would not have thought of and were simply spot on. He was a voice of calm through the stressful process of building a home.
His service after the sale was just as good. His intervention with our builder on warranty issues was timely and appropriate. Mark's suggestion that we have a final inspection performed right before the first year warranty expired was something we never really thought of. This inspection revealed a few things that were covered under the warranty that we were unaware of and able to get addressed by the builder.
Mark is an outstanding Realtor and we are so glad we utilized his services for our last real estate transaction.We have recommended him to several other people and they have had similar experiences.
