I found Marc through angieslist.com. Since he had great reviews there, I decided to call him. I found him very personable and easy to work with. He explained how the house could take up to a year to sell. However, to my relief and surprise, it sold in about three months. He is very knowledgeable about short sales. If I am ever in the market to buy or sell a house again, I will definitely contact hime.

Marc was great to work with on the sale of our home. He made excellent suggestions as we prepared to list the house and was very responsive to anything we asked. If the circumstance arose again, I would not hesitate to engage his services again nor recommend him to others.

My mom needed to sell her house immediately and move to a smaller, more secured abode. Marc sold her house in one weekend. Buyers started coming by Friday and it was sold by Sunday. The man knows what he is doing. He's good, he's personable and he's effective.

I loved working with Marc. He kept me grounded through a frustrating time. The only thing that bothered me was they took down his sale sign before he could put up a sold sign.

We first sold our house and compared Marc's company to a full service agency and the only real difference was a full service agency conducts open houses. But the savings in commission fees strongly outweighed that activity. Marc was extremely responsive to all our needs and since the selling of the house was the result of a divorce settlement also mediated between the two parties since trust was an issue between the parties. We also engaged Marc in finding a new home, and he constantly provided us listings and was always available to show us homes. Totally satisfied with Marc's services. Less ... More

After my first meeting with Marc, I decided he was "the one" and I didn't need to interview any other realtors to sell my property.  He was very professional, knowledgeable, and thoroughly covered all my questions.   Even though I was not going to be around to fully participate as the "U" in Help-U-Sell, Marc was confident that his team had everything covered for me - and they did!  From the beginning, he emphasized how many potential buyers today are computer savvy and rely on first impressions from online listings to draw them into looking at a property.  So, we staged my condo, took photos inside and out, and created a beautiful presentation for use online and for the brochure.  My property was widely publicized and immediately received a lot of interest  - and we had an accepted contract in 3 days!   Marc's advice was based on his sound real estate experience and I never felt pressured to make decisions I wasn't comfortable with or ready to make.  Marc and his team were with me every step of the way - always there to explain things, keep me posted on the status each step, and at the table to close the deal.  I relied on their expertise and their beginning-to-end guidance and support made my real estate transaction a success.   I highly recommend Marc and his team to anyone stepping into the real estate arena!

Marc was a phenomenal agent for both the sale of our old house and the purchase of our current one. He was very adaptable to our particular situation, and remained calm and professional through all the vagaries of the transactions, from competing offers and home inspections through the mortgage and settlement processes. His recommendations on fixing-up and pricing the sale house were right on target, and we were impressed at how rapidly our home sold in the current market. Other than the significant savings on his fee, we noticed no difference between Marc's Help-You-Sell service and that provided by the full-price agencies we've worked with before. Less ... More

This is the fourth home I've sold. Of all the real estate agents I've worked with, Marc has been the most capable and easiest to work with. Marc did WAY more than he needed to, but always made it seem like it was simply his job to do so. He found ways around the rough spots, never gave up, and was always professional, pleasant, and easy-going. He worked well will all parties - sellers, buyers, banks, title companies, appraisers, etc. In short, Marc was the anchor in our transaction - he brought everything together and made everything work. I found Marc simply by being curious about this "Help-U-Sell" service and calling their main number and they referred me to Marc. If you need to sell your house in the DC area, call Marc directly. You will probably get WAY more service than from other "big boy" realty firms, but will definitely pay a LOT less! Less ... More

Marc Dosik has been my real estate broker for well over 5 years. His outstanding knowledge of the Washington Metropolitan Area along with his exceptional ability and skill set has helped me successfully buy and sell several residential properties. My real estate experiences are real deep. I have been a real estate agent (completing all of the GRI courses), landlord of several DC rental properties and renovated and sold several DC properties. I have worked with many real estate professionals during these experiences but I have never met any as knowledgeable and capable as Marc. He is well deserving of the top 5% rating. Less ... More

Mark worked tirelessly to help me buy my first house in DC. I had a low budget, and was buying a foreclosure property soon after the market crashed -- not an easy transaction. Yet, Marc treated me like I was his only client and was always just a phone call away. He was professional and more than patient with the less-than-professional selling agent who did NOTHING to facilitate the transaction. When friends of mine were looking to move back into the area, I enthusiastically recommended Marc. He once again worked tirelessly, helping them find something that fit both their (sometimes contradicting) tastes. I would highly recommend Marc to anyone that is looking for an experienced and honest realtor! Less ... More

Marc is hands down the best real-estate agent I have ever worked with. I have purchased several homes through out the years and I have never experienced the professionalism that Marc and his team provided. From day one Marc took the time to understand my needs, stayed within my budget and provided me customer service (answering questions, phone calls, emails etc...) in a timely manner. I recently purchased a foreclosure property in a prime location. There were several snags along the way with the listing agent ( foreclosure bank) that could have caused the deal to go sour. However, Marc and his team went above and beyond to make sure that didn't happen. Marc, explained the processes of bank foreclosure buys, spent hours making phone calls, emails and responded to several unexpected service calls that required him to be at the property. I can go on and on about how pleased I am with Marc's work and his personality is just amazing. There were so many times Marc knew exactly what to say when all I wanted to do was cry lol (do to the stress of foreclosure process) but instead I laughed and took a deep breathe. If you want someone that is honest, knowledgable and works hard choose Marc Dosik Help-U-Sell. Less ... More

Marc was a real pleasure to work with. His experience and expertise are on par with the very best. I was not expecting such full service at his rate, but I could not have asked for more or better. He adroitly got my house sold within two months in a difficult market - and adroitly negotiated a better offer from a buyer. His expertise, candidness and honesty are impressive, and he is a good guy easy to like.

I did not know Marc personally until early of 2011 when I started to look for a house in Maryland. Before and after I met with him, I still kept other agencies around, some from my community, some from the signs in front of the houses or some from the online advertizement. Because I was new in Maryland I needed to know as many reputable agencies as I could, so I can pick up the best one when I really needed one. If I was a millionair and looking for a nice house having enough cash in hand, I might not need to spend that much time and energy to find my agency--Most of agencies were qualified to have at least 3-4 stars and they were good to request service. But with a little money in hand, having failed to get a loan before and still looking for a valued house in my favorite town, also counting in future investment return, it was a big task for an ordinary individual to find a really reliable, knowledgable, honest, smart and capable ageny working for you, and I bet with Marc dosik on early November 2011, and I hit a jack pot!--I still believe it is really worthy of a jack pot!

Marc did a fabulous job listing and selling my house. He was always upbeat, positive and very responsive in a timely manner. The only down side I encountered was to clear out of the house quickly so that all the shoppers could view the house. The upside to that I went out to dinner a lot! I credit Marc fol the high foot traffic because of the great photos he took and the description of property. I would definitely recommend Marc to anyone in need of his services.

Marc Dosik and I have had a real estate business relationship for several years. He has worked with me to sell 2 of 4 homes on Capitol Hill that I am liquidating as part of a late sibling?s estate. I?m very impressed with Marc?s abilities. His style is VERY flexible and open-minded in terms of satisfying the client?s needs. ?Trust? and ?honesty? are absolute requirements for me in any type of business dealing. Marc creates that environment from the very first meeting, and works hard to continually develop and support those elements of the partnership. Also, compared to the fees charged by traditional real estate companies, Marc?s are remarkable. They are EXTREMELY fair in terms of the services provided. Without question I would highly recommend Marc to anyone for their real estate needs! Less ... More

I couldn't have asked for a better agent to work with in firing my new home! Marc was proactive in pursuing listings I was I interested in, was available to answer my many questions, and was always willing to show me another condo or house (even of it meant more hours in the rain!). Marc easily negotiated with the sellig agent and provided me with expert knowledge throughout my search, escrow and closing.

Marc Dosik was an absolute pleasure to work with! My husband and I discovered him while he was the listing agent for a property being sold in the same area we were looking to purchase a home in. From our first conversation, we could tell Marc was very knowledgeable about neighborhoods and house prices in the DC area. He was also familiar with many of the other listing agents we came across in our housing search. He was always able and willing to take us out to look at properties, regardless of the day of the week or the time of the day. He never pressured us into any decisions, or tried to show us houses out of our preferred price range. When we found our perfect house, he helped us negotiate a fabulous deal and truly looked out for our interests. Thanks to Marc, we got the house we always wanted at a price and interest rate we never dreamed possible! Needless to say, we highly recommend him!! Less ... More

I was so lucky that a friend of mine introduced me to Marc Dosik when I expressed my interest in buying a single house for my family. Right from the beginning at mid 2009, Marc showed full understanding for my requirements and features of our dream house. But most of all, he showed his full readiness and enthusiasm in trying to help us find we needed. He was so punctual and ever-ready to show us the houses that we used to select out from the numerous sets of properties he was sending us via his real-estate website, and he used to take us in his own car to see those houses. Each time he was giving us his recommendations and pieces of advice that helped us finally choose our house in Olney, MD. During the process of buying he was of great help in explaining each step including the house inspection, paperwork, bank loan, and other negotiations till we finally sat together with all parties concerned, including Marc to finalize the paperwork and deed.

Marc was very knowledgeable of the buying and selling process. We purchased a short sale and Marc prepared us for all of the paper work and all of the potential pitfalls. He knew more than the listing agent for the short sale and was key to getting the deal done. He also sold our home in Washington, DC. We had an offer in less than one week because he helped us price the home right.

If you want to sell a house, it just doesn't make sense to work with conventional real estate agents. They charge too much ... the times have changed and the old business model is over. With Help-U-Sell you can save significant amounts of money. Although we were not trying to sell a house, I turned to Marc because I thought that working with people from Help-U-Sell would make sense. And it turned out to be a good decision. Marc is not only a very clever and knowledgeable guy, but a very nice person to work with. And that is very important (especially if you are very picky/demanding person). After several bids, and even withdrawing one bid, we got tired and frustrated with the whole house hunting process. But Marc was still OK with us and very supportive. Finally, we found a house we liked and Marc was there to negotiate the sale with some weird people on the other side. Among the most important things that we expected from an agent is responsibility and honesty. With Marc, we had both. He responds to emails/phone calls and is there when you need him. This often means having late-at-night emails/faxes offers. And he was very honest with us. We really appreciate his advice and effort. It was a pleasure working with him. Less ... More

I am not an across the board "5 star" giver for anything. In fact, I never take the time to fill out these things. Marc Dosik, however, is an exception in both areas. Marc has been involved in the selling and buying of 3 properties with us. I never thought I'd move so much in the course of 4 years, but I know realtors are never disappointed with that kind of turnaround. Marc was actually surprised and beyond acting as a realtor, he reaches out regularly as a friend & counselor for his clients going above and beyond in terms of service. I went with a ritzy realtor when we thought we needed to sell again last year. I did this against Marc's advice and he couldn't have been more right. Thankfully we ended up not selling, but throughout the ordeal, I missed being able to call up Marc and commiserate about the process. He is bar none, cut from a different cloth. I would write more if I had time. Call Marc, at least for a consultation - you won't regret it and you'll likely save thousands of dollars. All the best! Less ... More
