Bought a Single Family home in 2022 in Pocono lake, PA

When it was still definitely a seller's market, Mark found our ideal spot in Poconos where we could start our Short Term Rental venture. He gave that extra touch to make sure our bid was completive and won. Thanks Mark and hope to obtain more properties in Poconos with Mark!

Bought a Single Family home in 2021 in Albrightsville, PA.

Mark was really great! He was very knowledgeable about the area and key to us picking the right neighborhood to search for our vacation home. He was extremely helpful in ensuring that we could look at places on our limited time schedule and with our little kiddos! He kept in touch throughout the process and continues to reach out to make sure everything is going smoothly.

Jim Thorpe, PA 2022

Mark Shay made the purchase of my new STR in Jim Thorpe almost effortless. Based on my criteria, he had a list of homes to choose from within an hour of my request. I am not from the area, so Mark connected me with vendors and helped me safely navigate the STR licensing process. Mark Shay is a great realtor and ambassador for the Poconos mountain community and I highly recommend him for your home purchase journey.
