Intense Interest in Carmel Real Estate

Carmel by the Sea

Whatever your desire, everyone seems to be interested in our real estate. In fact, the interest is so intense as to be almost annoying. Try eating a nice breakfast at Little Swiss Cafe, savoring the aroma of fresh coffee, reading your favorite newspaper and some one in the adjoining booth leans over and says: “Hey Paul, how is the market?”

My stock answer is “amazing” and I quickly grab a piece of bacon.

Outstanding Real Estate Reports

If you want more than “amazing” you have to a little work.

Besides being real estate selling and listing agents, we try to bring clarity to what is going on around here, not only in Carmel-by-the-Sea but on the entire Monterey Peninsula.

We do that by publishing quarterly reports on local real estate.

There are two reports: one covers single-family residences. This one is first published in our terrific local weekly, The Carmel Pine Cone, and then on our website.

The other covers local condos and is published exclusively on our website, Follow the link or scan this code to get to our site. There you will find the current reports and an archive of previously published pieces.


In our next blog we will tell you the best way to interpret the reports.

Keep on Dreamin’ and Call, Write or Scream your Questions and we will get back to you immediately,

Customer Testimonials

Paul and Mark are true professionals and gave us their best efforts. The agent that represented the buyer was especially difficult to deal with and caused unnecessary stress and anguish for all involved on both sides. Fortunately, all ended well, thanks to Paul and Mark taking the “high road” and allowing for sometimes over zealous reactions. They both exemplify the best of attributes that we have come to expect from realtors over the past 30 plus years. We look forward to dealing with them again for our next purchase in the next year or so!

Mark, Thanks for all you are definitely made this our most positive Real Estate experience in last 30yrs!!!! Who is better than you????? NOBODY!!
– Tom M. R.

Mark, I cannot tell you how valuable it is to have an agent like you. You have been really great from day one. You have no idea how I have to chase down agents and solve ALL the problems and it really eats up my time. You have been FABULOUS! Do you do linkedin? I don’t usually connect with agents, but I would be happy to write a recommendation, if that is helpful. I’ve sent your contact info to my other teammates and have deleted all other emails from realtors in your area. I’ll send you an application to become one of our Preferred Agents. Look forward to our next transaction together.

Searching for a house that would meet our expectations as well as our budget from 3000 miles away seemed like a monumental task. Needless to say, Mark Ryan handled everything with complete thoroughness. During our few short house hunting visits, he diligently showed us all the different neighborhoods with his heartfelt goal of finding the right home for us. The perfect house was found! We closed in 30 days, which, we understand, is not uncommon, except for the fact that all inspections and contingencies had to be completed in one week, per seller terms, instead of the normal two weeks. Mark’s logistical orchestration was superb, doing all this while communicating with us in a different 3 hour time zone. We’ve been here a year now and we love our new home. Thanks, Mark, for your exceptional job!
– Jeffrey and Dorris Varnum

We are lucky to have stumbled on to you.
