"Mark went above and beyond expectations. He kept us informed of every step along the way. He became a part of our lives and helped us find a home that fit our needs. When a problem arose, Mark helped us find a solution. He made sure that all steps were completed in a timely fasion. We highly recommend Mark to anyone buying or selling a home."

-Bucyrus Buyer

"Mark was extremely helpful during our first home buying experience. He was quick to respond to questions and thoroughly explained every step of the process. I would highly recommend Mark to anyone buying a home.

-Berryton Buyer

"Mark is extremely personable and the best agent ever that my husband and I have worked with. He was very patient with us and determined to find the right house to make a home for us. He always took extra steps for us when looking at homes. When things didn’t work out, he assured us that the right one was out there. He was right! Thank you so much Mark. You're not just an agent to us anymore, but a caring friend!

-Spring Hill Buyer

"Mark Van Houten, with Crown Realty in Spring Hill KS, is a top notch professional! He helped us with recommendations on getting house ready sell. Offered names of professionals to do repairs we could not do ourselves. Walked us all the way through, up to and including the closing. Always was available, just a call, text or email away. He has a great work ethic. We would definitely use him again, if we were going to stay in the area."

-Spring Hill Seller

"Working with Mark made the home buying and selling process a lot less stressful. It was an amazing feeling to know we had a Realtor that had our best interest in mind at all times. I would highly recommend Mark to anyone that is ready to take the leap and buy or sell a home.

-Bucyrus Buyer/Seller


"Mark did an excellent job helping us find the perfect new home and went above and beyond expectations on the sale of our house. He made sure everything worked seemlessly from contract to closing. I would recommend his services to everyone. Mark gives 110% all the time!"

-Louisburg Buyer


"Mark is an exceptional real estate agent. Personally, I am a sales professional and so I am kind of a stickler when dealing with other sales professionals. I can honestly say that Mark is one of the best (if not the very best) sales professional that I have ever dealt with. First and foremost,  Mark is very honest and has a high degree of integrity. Also, do not let his down-to-earth personality fool you, because he is extremely knowledgeable about the market and very sharp on every little detail regarding houses. He follow-ups constantly and nothing slips past him. But I think his best quality is his ability to listen to clients and adapt accordingly. When you get Mark VanHouten on your is a slam-dunk that you will be very satisfied with his service. Highly recommended!"


"Mark went above and beyond to help us sell our home, and find our DREAM home! The market was starting to heat up and he helped us price our house appropriately, which in turn helped us sell pretty quickly. Our only problem then, was trying to find a new home. He knew our wants and needs, and worked relentlessly to help us find a home. After losing out on two homes we loved, we were worried we would have to settle on something just so we had a place to live. However, Mark remained optimistic and went ABOVE and BEYOND to find us the home of our dreams.  He was very professional, courteous, completely honest and up front about everything. We thoroughly enjoyed working with him!  If you want a great experience and want someone you can trust, look no further!



"Detail oriented, and anticipated and addressed our concerns before we even asked. Trust with anyone is earned-- Mark certainly earned our's from the get go. He made the entire purchasing process both seamless and painless. I would work with him again in a heartbeat."

-Buyer in Ottawa


"After an interview & suggestions from another realtor that we list our home at a value that I knew was inflated by $75,000, I stayed up late at night reading reviews of other professionals trying to chose the correct one. I emailed him on Friday then spoke with him the following morning. We interviewed early Saturday evening, and the following Sunday morning he showed our home. At1:00 pm he called & said he would bring over a signed contract offer for full listing price later in the afternoon. WOW !! I walked around in a daze for a couple of hours, but by 6:00 pm we had also accepted & signed the contract-at full asking price. Once again, WOW !! The only problem we encountered was finding another place to call home so fast. If there is another realtor in South Johnson County that can equal his great personality, consummate professionalism, or his ability of how to accurately price a property, I would like to meet them too. But in our book, Mark is simply the best!! And once again, thanks a bunch !! From da condo on da Lake..."

-Seller in Bucyrus


"Through several setbacks (two prospects failed to qualify) Mark remained energetic and determined until the final sale. Mark kept us constantly informed throughout the whole process."

-Seller in Spring Hill


"Mark did a great job of helping me find a suitable property as I was moving from out of state. The subsequent inspection, remediation, and closing process was relatively smooth."

-Buyer in Spring Hill


"Mark is a very hard working and dedicated realtor. He understands the current inventory in Spring Hill and the surrounding areas. Mark was even able to show us some houses that were not even on the open market yet. Mark's was willing to meet anytime anywhere. While normal business hours are tried to be held to, Mark understands the importance of dealing with things in the time frame they need to be dealt with. Todays home owners are in the here and now and expect instant answers and efforts. Mark is a "Closer" and get's things done. He is very experienced in negotiating and getting the best possible price for his buyers and sellers. Won't let my family and friends use anyone else."

-Buyer in Spring Hill


"We shopped, found a house, and closed within 3 weeks. Mark dedicated day and night to helping us in our tight schedule situation and we still ended up in our dream home for the price we wanted to pay. Would highly recommend Mark to anyone!"

-Buyer in Olathe


"He is so thoughtful and accommodating. Helped me with repairs and made suggestions on how to best showcase house. He didn't ask me to change my life style and didn't push for perfection, but was supportive of the personal changes u was going through at the same time selling my home. He was patient as I made decisions and gave logical suggestions without being pushy or condescending. I always felt that I was important and not a number. At closing he was kind as it was a little sad giving up my first home."

-Seller in Gardner


"Mark was very pleasant to work with and keep the ball rolling. Was very knowledgeable about all aspects of the selling and buying process and helped it to move along quickly and smooth. Would definitely recommend for buying or selling next property :-)"

-Seller in Osawatomie


"Excellent at listening to his client's needs/wants, and maintaining great communication. We would definitely work with Mark again in the future, if the opportunity presents itself."

-Buyer in Spring Hill


"Mark:...Going to suggest our neighbor get a hold of you. In the past I usually put most Realtors in the same classification as used car salesman , it's obvious you are the exception..."

-Fred in Wellsville


"We really appreciated the way Mark advertised our home and to have it sold within a week showed his dedication to selling our home. He also is very thorough when showing us homes that we were interested in purchasing by pointing out things in a home. We truly would recommend him as a Realtor."

-Kelly and Jennifer Hasz


"I have worked with Mark in the past and have always been impressed with his work ethic, organization and promptness. I would certainly contact him again with any potential real estate projects. I appreciate Mark's extended knowledge with rural properties and real estate."

-David Smith


"We are extremely happy with our experience purchasing our home with Mark. He did an excellent job in every aspect of the process. Mark is a friendly person and honest about his thoughts on houses, prices, work that needed to be done, the area, everything. We quickly trusted his opinion. He helped us find the home of our dreams and we couldn't be happier. From our initial meeting of Mark to post closing on our home, Mark did an absolutely wonderful job. I will definitely recommend Mark to family and friends that are looking to buy or sell a home."
-Greg & Stina Frazier



"When my wife and I got married 10 years ago we immediately started saving for a house in the country. It was our dream. Last June we found a house online that peaked our interest enough to pull the trigger. While the deal didn't go through we were lucky enough to have Mark answer the phone at the office and show us that house. Since we had an offer in on that house we had to put our home up for sale. Within the first 24hrs Mark had our house sold. We were floored. Our last house took us 8 months to sell. Since the house we wanted didn't work out we were now looking for another place. Saving as long as we had we knew exactly what we wanted and where we wanted it. We relayed this info to Mark and he ran with it. While the market was a little slow in the area we were looking this past year Mark was always searching for us. He always checked in, sent us houses we may be interested and if we wanted to look at a place, he had it set up that day. And when we did view a home with him he had more info and stats on the house than I could have ever found. He showed up early to look the place over before we got there and was able to catch a lot of issues with houses that we would have overlooked. It was like viewing a house for the first time with an inspector. It took us a while (cause we were picky) but we did find a home. And it's perfect. And we owe it all to Mark. This was a huge goal for us to accomplish and we couldn't have done it without him.
I can't put into words how blessed we feel to have been paired up with Mark. I have never in my life dealt with someone providing a service that was more organized, prepared and a pleasure to work with. I will absolutely work with him again in the future and recommend him to anyone we hear looking to buy or sell a house. 
Through this process we have formed a friendship with him and I can't wait to have him come out and go fishin' with me at our new home.
You got one hell of an agent working for you."
-Chad, Jacque and Riyn Brouhard



"5 stars!  Mark is a great agent! He works hard for his clients and can overcome most any obstacle in the buying or selling process."

-Jenny Hayden


"Mark will find you or your family the right house for the right price."

-Tom Krokstrom


"If you find yourself in need of a realtor, give Mark VanHouten a call. He worked really hard to help us get to where we wanted to be. The Fab Four (kids) still talk about how great Hooty is & grumpy old Gertrude (dog) actually liked him! (That's the true test of character around here.) There ya have it; Mark has a knack for making the not so delightful experience of selling/buying/moving pretty darn delightful."

-Sara Murry

"This is the 2nd experience I have had with Mark (he assisted my Parents in selling their home last year). I trusted Mark completely to look out for my best interests in all aspects of the search, negotiation and purchase of my new home and I could not be happier that I did! Buying or Selling a home is a very stressful situation, you need to know with certainty that you have a trusted partner to rely upon. I can not think of a single area which I could say Mark needs to work on this or that. He is a trusted professional, someone you need in your corner for these life changing experiences."

"Mark was very professional and great to work with. He continually negotiated for what was best for us, as his client. A realtor that offered on our house was less than knowledgeable and Mark took over all paperwork to ensure that everything was done to his standards and the way things should be. Very impressed!! If you are looking for a great realtor, Mark is the best!!"
