- I doubt that any real estate agent in British Columbia could have done a better job for our family than Mark Lester. We had a unique island property, passed down by our parents, located at the center of a provincial marine park. Mark advertised our island effectively and ultimately helped us obtain a fair market price in a sale to the Province, ensuring that our beloved island would be protected and enjoyed by the public for many years. Mark’s professionalism and capabilities helped guide us in our decisions, and he communicated with us all along the way. Mark is honest, straight-forward, and reliable. I recommend him without reservation!
