We have bought and sold 17 homes over our life, and, by far, the MP team was our best experience. They truly understand what it means to put the customer first. A special praise for Mark from two examples. We were preparing an offer, agreed on a number, then Mark did further analysis and came back to recommend we not go that high. His second heroics was "calming the waters" when our financing unexpectedly went off the rails, and he kept our deal alive until that error could be corrected. And for every property we viewed, we got a candid "pros and cons" of the property, instead of sugar coating any weak aspects. and what a great sense of humor this guy has. and the support team communicates well and effectively and never dropped the ball. I recommend this team wholeheartedly.

We cannot say enough good things about Mark Bruno. Mark has been immensely supportive throughout the entire home buying process. Mark was organized, kind, thoughtful, and very candid with us throughout. We both felt very taken care of by Mark and that he had our best interests at heart. He went above and beyond even post sale to help us organize with vendors and get them access to the home. The entire team at MPHT was amazing, very communicative and prompt. We will absolutely be using them again if the time comes, and will recommend them to all of our friends & family!

I am writing to express my strong recommendation for the Monterey Peninsula Home Team, particularly highlighting the exceptional services of our main real estate agent, Mark Bruno, his wife Teresa and Nicole, who managed all our paperwork.

Our experience of purchasing a condo in Pebble Beach was made remarkably smooth and stress-free, thanks to their combined efforts. From the beginning, Mark's expertise and understanding of the Pebble Beach real estate market were evident. He guided us through the selection process with patience and an acute attention to our needs and preferences.

What truly set this team apart was their meticulous attention to every detail. They were always available to answer our questions, no matter how trivial, and provided us with comprehensive information and updates throughout the entire process. This level of dedication and professionalism greatly contributed to our confidence and comfort during what is often a stressful decision-making process.

Moreover, the administrative aspects with the volume of paperwork, often the most cumbersome in real estate transactions, were handled with exceptional efficiency and accuracy by Nicole. Her proficiency in managing the paperwork ensured that all our transactions were completed without any hitches, and well within the timelines.

In conclusion, the Monterey Peninsula Home Team, led by Mark Bruno, embodies the pinnacle of professionalism, knowledge, and customer service in real estate. I would strongly recommend them to anyone looking to purchase property in the area. Their commitment to their clients and their craft is truly commendable and sets a high standard in the real estate industry.

Jeff Davi and his team are fabulous real estate professionals. I have been working with the Monterey Peninsula Home Team for the last several transactions and would certainly use them again and again, should I be fortunate enough to acquire another property. I highly recommend Jeff Davi and Monterey Peninsula Home Team. They work hard for their clients and make the process as easy as possible. In my opinion they go above that we have come to expect in this day and age. Thank you all for your help.

Exactly 37 days from signed listing to SOLD! When Jeff Davi is your Realtor, you are one lucky person! Jeff’s real work started over 15 months before I signed the listing, when I called him and asked for help. Can I ever really thank him for the million and one kind things he did for me? Probably not, but I will try!

I had a big mess on my hands, but with Jeff's help, patience, and love, this transaction was a TOTAL success from beginning to end. Many thanks to the whole team - Teresa and Nicole, the escrow folks at Chicago Title, Gerry Wiles and Lynn Pace, and of course, one of my most favorite people on earth, Mr. Jeff Davi! The whole experience was exceptional on every level!

Thank you, Jeff Davi!

We had two transactions with Jeff that were effortless. Jeff is patient, kind, hard working and detail oriented. He handled the negotiations for us as both buyer and seller gracefully. We were all happy with the outcome. His knowledge of the local market is wide ranging and he is respected by all of his fellow agents. His team members, Nichole and Teresa are always available and happy to help. Thank you all. Regards, Bill and Tasha

Mark Bruno just sold my Pacific Grove vacation home. For the entire process of selling this property, Mark stayed professional, effective, and efficient. This is exactly how I remember him when he was my buyers' agent 8 years ago of the same property he just sold. No BS, no fluff, yet he is always cordial and sensible. He will be there to do the job for you. In addition to Mark as an exceptional agent, his assistants are top notch. They were on top of all the things that needed to happen for the smooth transactions I did with him.

The entire Keller Williams team was great- professional, friendly and understanding. We were handling a property left to us in trust and from out of state as well as during these uncertain teams. Lynda treated us so well and kept us informed and Mark, Teresa and Nicole were all assets to a successful sale.
We have been more than impressed by the indivuals as well as the teamwork.
It was a great experience.

Rachelle was wonderful from day one. We have worked with several realtors over the past few years and never have we felt so supported throughout the process. From the listing assessment to organising and completing of advised cosmetic improvements, Rachelle was there to ensure the work quoted correctly, done as requested and kept us completely informed. We had an offer in 2 days and closed in 45 days. This would not have been possible if Rachelle had not been so diligent. The staff in her office assisted in ensuring all details were completed expeditiously. We cannot sing your praises or thank you loud enough!!

The entire Keller Williams team was fantastic to me during my search for a new home. Jeff Davi was very patient and his experience paid off. Once in escrow, Nichole Fisher did a great job communicating each step. I am thankful for their help in closing the deal!

My husband and I met Mark when he showed us one of his listings. We decided to use him to sell our condo and were very happy with the result. We went back and forth on deciding if we wanted to list it and Mark was very patient every step of the way. It took a little longer than expected to sell but Mark and his team were diligent with their open houses until we finally got the offer we wanted. Mark and his team are very friendly and professional. We will definitely be using the Monterey Peninsula Home Team when we purchase our next property.

I worked with Mark and his team twice. Several years ago, he helped me to get a short sale house. Everything was very smooth. This time when I contacted him, the house that I'm interested in already got several offers. Guess what? With Mark and his team's help, we made this last-minute deal possible.

My family and I highly recommend Mark and his team for their great knowledge of this area and great service provided during the entire buying process.

Mark, Jeff and Nichole did a great job from beginning to end on both selling a home for me and the purchase of my new home. Straight forward, great communication on all levels and issues. They went beyond what I expected. I highly recommend their team, second to none.

It took about twenty minutes after meeting Mark to feel like he was an old friend, and I don’t mean old in reference to his age. I was referred by my mother’s friend’s son whose name I don’t remember, but no matter the way in which he became my realtor, I am grateful.

Ten years ago, I was purchasing my first home, and as a single person fairly new to the area, I was nervous. I dragged Mark to every home for sale in Monterey County, from ones I couldn’t afford to ones caved in from foreclosure. I imagine most realtors would only put up with my needless worries, pickiness, and changes of mind if their client had more to spend than me, but for ten months, Mark accompanied me to hideous homes he knew I wouldn’t purchase and answered my calls even while vacationing. He may have given me humorous grief for my madness, but his patience through the process and his knowledge for all things homes alleviated the trepidation I had.

I wish I could say that ten years gave me the maturity I needed to purchase a new home with my partner, but together, we were just as anxiety ridden as I was the first time. With my new half in tow, we dragged Mark from Pacific Grove to Prunedale to places we’d like to forget, and no matter the time of day or day of the week, Mark was available. He answered our absurd questions, endured all the time we took up, and put us at ease.

Mark’s sincerity, tolerance, and expertise mean that until he fires us, there is no one we rather work with.

Jeff Davi did a wonderful job for me and my children. Our house sold and went through escrow in 7 weeks. This was during the holiday season which was incredible.

We recently moved back to the Monterey area and Jeff Davi of the Monterey Peninsula Home Team was our Realtor. In a word he was terrific. His patience, advice and experience helped us find and purchase a wonderful home. All through the process Jeff, along with Nicole Fisher, kept us in the loop and answered all our questions along the way. We can’t thank them enough!

They did a fantastic job! The whole team was so helpful and got our home sold in a timely and smooth fashion. This was our second time working with them and looking forward to a third!

Rachelle Razzeca, from start to end, was there for us in the sale of our home. She had a difficult job and she navigated it with ease. She was accessible, communicated effectively and held open houses frequently. She had great strategies and we couldn't be more happy with the outcome. Thank you Rachelle!

Jeff Davi did a great job handling the sale of my Mothers house in Carmel. With a reverse mortgage on it, he was instrumental in getting everything rolling to sell the house in a very short period of time. Thank you so much for your guidance and patience with me.

Last week we closed the sale of our Hollister Home, not easy as it was one of the most valuable homes in the market there. In June of 2016 we closed the purchase of our Carmel Valley home. Both properties were handled by Jeff and Mark as our listing agent and buying agents respectively. It could not been a better experience.

The staff supporting both sale and purchase were Nicole Fisher, Nicole Ushakoff and Teresa Bruno. They are all such a valuable part of the team. I appreciated the lighting fast and accurate response, communications, and e-signature forms from them.

Last year the house we bought in Carmel Valley was a hot seller. It was in contract within 48 hours of listing with several offers. Jeff and Mark were there representing us in a heartbeat. We made the offer within 24 hours of the listing and we had a deal in 48 hours. There were several other offers. I can’t help but think that Jeff and Mark’s credibility played a part in the acceptance of the offer.

The Hollister home was just an opposite experience with respect to the market conditions, but Jeff was upfront and said it could take a year to sell. It took 10 months. Apparently it’s usually hard to sell the highest value home in almost any marketplace. At first I thought he was way off on that comment, later I came to appreciate the honesty and integrity behind his statement. I had other agents tell me it would sell in a week.

My wife and I have had over 50 real estate transactions since 2007 in places ranging from Hawaii, Lake Tahoe to San Francisco and the Monterey Bay area. I would have to place Jeff, Mark and the team in the #1 slot as the best group I have dealt with in all those transactions.

One more plus, Mark and Jeff can be really fun to be around, especially if you get them together. I can get really serious and intense in a real estate transaction, they can lighten up the tone. I really appreciate them both.

Great Team to work with that helped me sell an investment property! Jeff was amazing and exceeded any of my expectations. Towards the end of the sale, the home presented some problems. But Jeff was great in working through the issues Very promptly. He worked hard to get the job done and closed the sale of the home on time. Thank You !!
