Review of Mark Garrett

"To tell you the truth of the matter, I had never heard of Three Pillars Realty before the time of selling my house, but was attracted to this company for one reason alone, Mark Garrett. Mark is one of those people that you rarely meet in life, but when you do, you never let go. His heart is pure and is one of the most giving people I know, even to complete strangers. I could have went with a bigger company like Re/Max, but something told us to follow our hearts, and that Mark would have our back through this whole process of selling our home. After coming on board with Three Pillars Realty, it didn’t take us long to meet other members of the team, and to know that they also had our best interest at hand.  Everything from expert advice in home staging, open houses and competitively pricing our home in an unfavourable market, getting us over our asking price. The result was peace of mind for my wife and myself. Something you can’t put a price tag on. Both my wife Josie and myself would like to thank Mark Garrett and the Three Pillars Realty team for an amazing job, well done!

Review of Mark Garrett and David Sokol

"I worked with David Sokol and Mark Garrett, two very competent and professional realtors.  They were very accommodating in helping me find the best possible house for the amount of money I had to spend.  I could speak with them night and day and they helped me with things above and beyond the duties of your average realtor.  In the end I got a fantastic house and two new good friends and business to business partners. I have dealt with several realtors over the years but none as competent, professional and friendly as Dave and Mark.  I would not hesitate to recommend their services to anyone." — Brad Wilson

Jim & Nancy

Review of Mark Garrett

"Working with Mark was an absolute pleasure. He is very friendly and outgoing. We were moving from out of town and didn't know the city but Mark tirelessly showed around Hamilton, the difference between neighbourhoods and really dug down to understand exactly what we were looking for and where we would be happiest raising our family. And we found it! We have our dream home and couldn't have been happier about the entire process from beginning to end!" — Jim & Nancy

Klara & Stefan

Review of Mark Garrett

"You were absolutely amazing with us. You did not mind if it was Saturday or Sunday, you were always ready to take us around and show us more properties. We never felt impatience from you, or any effort trying to convince us to make a purchase. You truly and sincerely wanted to find the house that we were looking for. You proved to be very professional, knowledgeable, very kind and very friendly, always protecting our best interests, passionate about your work and very thorough. We had very pleasurable time spent with you. Buying a house is not an easy process, but if all the agents would be like you I am sure many more houses would be sold and bought. We sincerely recommend you to anybody who wants to make a sell or purchase and wish you the best in your professional career." — Klara & Stefan Bodis

Lorraine & Frederik

Review of Mark Garrett

"Moving to a new city is not for the faint of heart.  My husband and I were fortunate to have Mark Garrett and David Sokol helping us.  Both gentlemen were understanding and very patient with us. They were also a lot of fun to work with.  We received great support from our initial contact all the way through our moving date and beyond. We do not plan to move again for a very long time; but I most certainly will recommend Mark and David to anyone searching for a home in the Greater Hamilton area." — Lorraine & Frederik


Mario & Serap

Review of Mark Garrett

"Serap and I can't say enough on how professional a real estate agent you are. Between my wife and I, we purchased and sold over 8 properties and have never met an agent as professional and kind as you. My wife and I were very impressed on your attention to detail, patience, follow-ups making every step so easy and seamless. Your overall knowledge and advice were awesome. Mark, you are second to none. Keep up the GREAT work and we wish you, Three Pillars Realty, and your families continued success and the very best over the upcoming holiday season." — Mario & Serap

Review of Mark Garrett

"Mark helped us buy our first home. He is an amazing agent with exceptional professionalism. From start to finish, he took extra steps to understand our needs and circumstances. As first time home buyers, we weren’t familiar with some of the process and Mark helped us navigate the process, making sure that we understood each step. From the get go, it was clear that Mark’s goal wasn’t just to sell us a house, but to help us find the home that works for us! He was accessible and responsive at all times to answer our questions. We totally recommend Mark to anyone that is looking for the highest level of care." — Jovi & Yohana Otite

Yvette & Family

Review of Mark Garrett

“Renting a house that met our needs and budget was really difficult to find. Our realtor, Mark Garrett, was the perfect fit for us. From the first time we met Mark, he seemed to care about our needs and wanted to help us find a house as soon as possible. He went above and beyond to help us with renting the house that we live in now. He is dedicated, professional and has a good knowledge of the market. To those thinking about renting or buying a house, we highly recommend Mark due to his honesty and hard work to meet your needs”  — Yvette & Family

Peter Chang

Review of Mark Garrett

"I would like to share our recent investment home purchase with Mark Garett.

Over the course of the past thirty years, I have worked with several other realtors in the purchase of three homes and selling of two. I would have to say that Mark is not your typical realtor and he has certainly exceeded all of our expectations. Not only is he thorough and dedicated, but he is an intuitive individual who is both compassionate, professional and entertaining. From the initial start of our search into a new home, Mark has been alongside us the whole way. Based on our budget, Mark tailored a portfolio that was receptive to our needs, all the while surprising us with his complete dedication in finding us the home that would best suit my family's needs and our budget.

I had not expected Mark to go above and beyond to check out homes that we had found online nor take the time to research others he felt would be in line with our vision. Mark's attention to detail has been a valuable asset to us in our search, making many vital observations and highlighting concerns I had not noticed myself. There were several homes that we had seriously considered purchasing, but Mark's expertise and diligence made us aware of major items we hadn't noticed before." — Peter Chang


The entire process with Mark has really demonstrated his remarkable dedication to client satisfaction. Unlike agents from past homes, Mark has stayed with us from the initial steps to our leap into renovations. No other realtor has ever dropped by to check in or offer assistance in renovations. He has been there to guide us as not only a valuable resource, but now as truly good-hearted friend.

Review of Mark Garrett

"We would like to take this time to let you know how much we appreciated the work that Mark did assisting us to find a rental condo in our preferred area of Mississauga. Prior to working with Mark we tried other agents in our area but they were not very helpful in securing what we wanted, and kept making comments like … you’re only going to be here a year, so the size is okay, or it’s not that far out of your area, or they only want to rent to a married couple and family. With Mark he understood our goals to find a place that we could live in long-term, in our preferred area. He was instrumental in us getting the right place and he negotiated with the Real Estate Agent to get the rental we wanted. He was with us on the day when we got the keys and walked around with the other agent to point out some things that needed fixing, and which were done within a couple of weeks.  If it wasn’t for Mark we would never have gotten the place we wanted, in the area we wanted at a price we could afford. If and when the time comes for us to move, Mark will be the first person we go to when we start looking." — Kathie, Scott & Matt


Review of Mark Garrett

"I recommend Mark highly as a great real estate agent who is pleasant, understanding to the clients needs and down to earth.  Also had an awesome experience where Mark was attentive to my needs and patient with showing me properties and show me what I was looking for in a home.  Mark always made time for me when I needed him and was professional and diligent in winning the perfect home for me at a busy, competitive time in the market." — Sherry


Review of Mark Garrett

"Big Shout Out to Mark, I relocated from Vancouver BC. I tried a few real estate agents prior to Mark and didn’t find a connection. Mark made you feel welcome and very professional at his job. Mark was the best realtor you could ask for. Not only did he find my perfect home but made the process so unbelievably easy and comfortable. Mark is extremely accommodating and gets back to you immediately no matter the time of day. If you don’t use Mark, you’ve missed out!!!" - Cole

Review of Mark Garrett

"We had been looking for a home for awhile and when the time came to jump into the buying market we balked. Our family friend and only agent had passed away and we weren't sure we could ever trust someone again. Then we met Mark. He was super friendly, easy to talk to and very accommodating. He found us several houses that met our criteria and always made himself available to show us the properties. He helped us secure our new home and stood by us right through closing and after. Not only did we chose the right agent, but we also gained a new friend. Mark was truly professional and always had our best interest at heart. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to my family and friends. Thank you Mark your team work made the dream work!" - Megan

Review of Mark Garrett

"We have been dealing with Mark over the past year, first to find a suitable rental and then in finding our new home. We have found Mark to be the ultimate professional who always knows his stuff and goes out of his way to help us understand what we are looking for and how each possible property fits into our plan. Mark has a true passion for his work and a great sense of what we, the client are looking for. He understands the market and can translate builder hyperbole into simple terms for us to understand. There is no question that Mark can't handle, if he doesn't know up front he'll tell you and then go and get the definitive answer. We are glad that we have Mark on our team and that he has helped us find our final home. Thanks" - Karl Romphf

Thank you!” - Shea


Review of Mark Garrett

"Mark was a great relator that assisted me in renting my house , he was impressively efficient and professional. But aside from being very knowledgable, he is super nice, approachable, not pushy and listens to your needs. He advocates for his client very well, basically he was on top of things and communicates very well that I was not left wondering if he is following up with things or understood my needs. I was very lucky to have had him as my agent and will definitely to utilize him in the future and recommend him with 100% confidence to work with anyone." - AB


Review of Mark Garrett

"Mark Garrett was recommended to me through a co-worker who previously relocated using his services. He was highly recommended and I was assured that he would work within my budget to find me the best deals. Mark ended up providing me a long list of apartments in which to choose from, and I ended up deciding on an apartment outside of my originally designated budget, due to the fact that I was so excited about it. All of the confusing paperwork and applications were also provided by, and signed through Mark, and the process felt much simpler than when applying alone, which was another added bonus. Anything I could’ve possibly wanted or been concerned about was covered, and I would highly recommend Mark to anyone looking to simplify apartment hunting and guarantee yourself the best opportunity."

Review of Mark Garrett

"Mark was a pleasure to deal with - as we sold our Grimsby home and purchased a new home in Grimsby as well. He was always professional and listened to our concerns. He has a very strong knowledge of the local market, and assisted us with making the best decisions. Mark was very hands on, and did what needed to be done to sell our home quickly and at market value. He acted quickly when we were scrambling to purchase a new home. He removed the stress from the real estate transaction, by handling all matters in the most professional way. Helped with every detail – could not have asked for a better person. Thanks very much Mark." - Bryan and Aziyade Jackson

Review of Mark Garrett

"My brother and I are very much satisfied with the entire experience. As first time home-buyers, you have guided us through the entire process with clear, concise instructions as well as recognize problems that we were not aware of. The selection of houses you have provided were excellent, all within parameters that suited us. The immediacy of replies has made it a quick, easy and worry-free experience. And most importantly, just being genuine and friendly has made it enjoyable. Thanks and all the best." -  Andrew and Matt

Norma S.

Review of Mark Garrett

"When my original real estate agent gave up on me because he felt that I did not know what I wanted, and he did not want to waste his time, forgetting that I was a customer.  We were looking at a property in Grimsby, and my husband found Mark Garrett on the internet to show us the house.  Mark is charming, low key, but ever so helpful and kind.  He assisted us every step of the way through the process.  He showed us a number of homes, not easy to do during this terrible pandemic.  After we had settled on the place we decided to purchase, he sent us a whole lot of information on transferring to Grimsby, introduced us to a lawyer in town, gave us a list of services to contact prior to moving.  All this made for a smooth transition.

He helped us get a plumber, a landscaper, an architect.  He cut us some new keys for the house.  He took out some boxes and tree branches out to the dump for us.  All this, over and above what we have had from other real estate agents we have had in the past. He has now become a good friend and I would be happy to recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home."  - Norma S.
