Mark Bester - REALTOR ®
I immigrated from South Africa at the end of 2012 when my granddaughter was born. I have been in the US for 7 years.
I started in Real Estate in 2015 on the Investment side, doing acquisitions and sales for investors looking for property flips, rentals and tear downs. I gained knowledge of rehabs, maximizing square footage to add value to property for flipping and buy and hold investments, as well as the ROI’s and Cap Rates that make the properties profitable.
I moved into traditional real estate in 2016, and my experience from the investment side has helped me to advise clients when buying, what faults to look out for and what repairs can be done at what cost to add value to their homes. My knowledge especially helps my clients when they are looking to buy REO’s and Foreclosures.
Being South African puts me in a position to help South Africans buy and sell property in Tampa as the transactions of Real Estate is very different, compared to the way the Real Estate industry works in South Africa.
I specialize in the South Tampa, Tampa Palms and Riverview areas, and offer Seller and Buyer Guarantees to my clients for their peace of mind.
