What Our
Homeowners
Are Saying

Mark with History Maker Homes is awesome. He made the purchase of our home the best experience any home buyer could ask for. I must admit I can be a handful when purchasing anything, especially a purchase of this magnitude. And all through the process Mark was understanding. He took my calls day or night. I would even call him on his days off. He's just a nice, intelligent and well informed guy. When I had questions, he had the answers and if he didn't, it didn't take long for him to get them. Mark is one of the reason I would refer friends and family to History Maker Homes...
