About Mark Howlett

Mark has provided real estate services on the Tweed Coast for over 32 years, having SOLD over 540 properties. Mark understands the pressures attached to buying and selling property having personally engaged in a number of property purchases and personal property sales in the region, some during difficult periods such as the GFC where property prices were decimated. He has weathered the storms and learnt many valuable lessons along the way.

Mark believes in the importance of relationship with clients and the trust he is given when dealing with the purchase or sale of often, the clients biggest asset. Effective communication, empathy, and attention to detail together with his industry expertise makes Mark an agent with a difference. His sales career background includes that of a small business owner for over 20 years in Cabarita Beach being the owner and operator of Elders Real Estate changing its name to Tweed Coast Real Estate whilst being an owner operator of a short-term accommodation motel for 9 years.

Mark takes the responsibility as an agent seriously – assisting his clients with first-hand knowledge, particularly when selling in a changing marketplace. A market most current selling agents have never worked in. His background gives him a broad understanding of the complexities of running a small business and today he concentrates on one thing he is passionate about – listing and selling property as an @Realty Agent.

Mark was honest and ethical, and was obviously seeking the best outcome for us as the vendors. He assisted us in how best to prepare the property for sale, and what we could expect to sell for in the current market. His communication was very clear and he was available anytime we had questions or needed assistance. We would happily use his services to buy or sell real estate again and have highly recommended him to family and friends

Mark is an absolute gentleman who was available to assist us at all hours with the sale of our Unit

Mark recently sold a property for me in Kingscliff. Mark is very personable and brought a wealth of experience and knowledge of the local market and contacts to assist in preparing the property for sale. Mark’s assessment of the market and proposed approach delivered an excellent result. Mark’s communication was excellent and I felt confident and comfortable about making key decisions when required. I would recommend Mark and his team to guide and support you selling a property.

I sold my home in Bogangar in November 2020 and I engaged Mark Howlett to assist me with the sale. I have known Mark for 25 years and have always found him to be an honest and genuine person. He was very professional and respectful, when he was discussing my much loved home. As a proud home owner, I wanted to have an understanding real estate salesman, who was willing to listen to my many questions and concerns. Mark did a fantastic job. He communicated very regularly and kept me fully aware of the sale situation as it unfolded. Mark achieved a fantastic result for my property, way above my expectations.

For anyone considering selling a home in beautiful Cabarita Beach and surrounds, I would highly recommend Mark Howlett.

Mark is a fantastic agent that is an asset to the local area. Our first dealings with Mark have been as the purchaser and he remained helpful and knowledgeable through the entire process. He works hard for his client and is a strong negotiator. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Mark as our development proceeds and we become part of the community. A lovely touch to receive a thoughtful gift at the end too. Thank you

Mark is a fantastic agent that is an asset to the local area!

There isn’t many real estate agents that speaks to the owners, and the buyers telling the truth to both party’s. We thank you so much for being honest, and helping us getting through such a hard task, and for us being about 3 hours away. You did things for us that no other agent would have done.

Thank you very much Mark

Best real estate agent we have ever had. Mark and his team went thee extra mile. And try and find an honest agent – well look no further…thanks Mark

Review of Mark Howlett

We are very pleased with the result we achieved for our family home in Cabarita. Mark was able to generate multiple offers that were accepted, perhaps a sign of finance tightening up a few contracts fell over. The third contract completed this week with the new owners taking possession. Happy to recommend Mark and wish him more new listings in the coming weeks.

Recent sale of our house

Mark has assisted us in the purchase of several properties and we have found him helpful, courteous, knowledgeable and reliable in all transactions.

Property acquisition

Mark’s experience and market knowledge greatly assisted us in the sale of our property. Communication was excellent throughout the process, we believe we achieved the best possible outcome regarding the sale.

Mark Howlett - Tweed Coast Real Estate

I can say that working with Mark made it easy to manage the sale of my property in a hard market outside the normal busy selling period. Mark was quick to recognise the need to change marketing direction and followed through with a sale. I have no hesitation in recommending Mark as lead agent for selling your property. Good one Mark!

Selling in a hard market

To Whom it may Concern. The fact is Mark and his staff are quite incredible, polite, respectful, and very professional. We never really listed our home, we said to mark we are thinking about moving on, If you can sell at our given price we may sell. We are totally mind boggled , If there’s such a word. We sold in a month. I assure you they do a good job, If you require an early sale just give Mark a try. Good luck. Jon & Shirley Banwell

House Sale Pottsville

Mark and the team have helped me with a couple of purchases in the area, their local knowledge and effort to go out of their way to help me has been second to none. I would highly recommend Mark and the team.

Cabarita purchases

Mark was a pleasure to deal with during the negotiation and settlement periods. Communication was always open and the entire process as handled professionally.

A pleasure to deal with

It was an absolute pleasure doing business with Mark. We first meet him him at Seabrae court. We missed the open house earlier that day and Mark returned to show us the house on a Sunday afternoon. He even brought a ladder so we could inspect the ceiling space. Based on his insight, casual nature and sense of humour Mark seemed to be a trustworthy man. We eventually purchased at Edward Ave. I always felt at ease with Mark. He was honest and open in his dealings and I believe he worked in the best interests of both parties. I am very happy with the purchase and look to a new chapter in Pottsville.

We can’t thank Mark enough for helping us purchase our property in Pottsville. From the very first email we sent Mark enquiring about one of his properties we knew we were being genuinely looked after. His casual approach meant everything went smoothly and we were kept informed of any happenings through the whole process. We would recommend Mark as an agent for any sale or purchase of property. Thanks Mark we wish you all the very best, Josh and Peta Bone

Thanks Mark

Mark and his team were truthful and honest. They were very attentive in the sale process and communicated all information effectively. Always very efficient and went out of their way to assist to make the sale process as easy as possible. I would highly recommend Mark and his team to anyone buying or selling. Their efforts during a rental period are also highly recommended.

Mark Howlett

Very pleased with the service, communication and support provided by Mark and his great team.

Great Service

Mark called us and sent us updates with every Open House and gave us valuable feedback from every potential purchaser who looked at the property. When there were difficulties in a complicated settlement process, Mark did a fantastic job to help bring all of the parties together to make it happen. He definitely went above and beyond what I would expect from an agent. Highly recommended.

Thank you Mark for being such a friendly and supportive agent. Pleasure doing business with you. Regards, Jennifer

Amazing, personable, friendly, attentive and supportive

Well Done Mark

Mark is helpful, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Our experience was nothing less than great. We had previously advertised with Mark but withdrew for personal reasons, Mark did not hesitate in assisting us the second time and a sale was achieved within 20 hours of being listed. Very happy with the experience and highly recommend Mark Howlett

Happy Vendors

Mark was very professional & open – listened to what my expectations & outcomes were. He supported & managed the sale with his knowledge & experience in the area very efficiently resulting in a sale in a matter of weeks. Mark has my recommendation. Thanks Mark

Great agent

Prior to searching for an agent we were not sure what sort of person would best represent us. We found Mark to be realistic and open about the market situation, proposed the best sales process to get us the best market price and when it came to negotiation he kept informed in detail as to every parties offers and context. If you are looking for a professional salesperson to sell your house I highly recommend Mark.

What a professional salesperson - Honest, Savvy, Credible

I have had quite a few dealings with Mark Howlett and he always does what he says he will do. Always up front and honest and always returns phone calls etc. Im sure ill be using Mark again in the future.

Mark worked hard to get the right result

Thanks to Mark and the team at tweed coast real estate. The sale of our property was made easy and trouble free thanks to the professional and experienced team.

Great agent

We bought from Coastal real estate for the property that we wanted and Mark did communicate after hours to answer our questions and this ultimately facilitated the sale.

Pleasing agent

Buying our property through Mark was straight forward. Mark helped the whole process go smoothly.

Efficient and Friendly

I was in the market for property in the tweed coast area 3 years ago and chanced upon Mark. Right from the getgo he was very professional and easy to be around. I enjoyed my buying experience with Mark and his company of great staff looked after my properties for the duration of my ownership. Due to a change in circumstances I was forced to sell and was pleasantly surprised at how easily Mark and his team sold the two . I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Mark or utilise him again.

Both professional and affable

Mark is down to earth, honest and goes out of his way to help the buyer in a way no other agent does!!! He isn’t your typical Real Estate Salesperson who tells you what you want to hear, regardless of what’s ethical and financially viable for the buyer. He didn’t arrive in a fancy car and act like he’s more important than everyone else. I recommend him highly and look forward to dealing with him again in the future!!

Not like the rest- not your typical RE agent...

Mark is super easy to deal with. He made the process of buying our first home a very happy one.

Great bloke

Mark from Tweed Coast real estate provided an exceptional service for us in the sale of our property recently in Cabarita Beach. We are grateful to Mark for his experience and negotiation skills in achieving a great result for us and I highly recommend Mark and his team for anyone looking to sell their property in the local area. Judd Beale

Thanks Mark!

Mark Howlett was very attentive to my needs when searching and purchasing a property on the North Coast of NSW. He always answered my calls (regardless of the time or day of the week) and was quick to act on negotiations for a hassle free purchase. He kept me updated throughout the whole process and ensured consistent communication through the negotiation process. I was overall, extremely happy with the service he provided and have since continued to rent the property using his services due to the customer service I received. I would have no hassles recommending his services in the future to friends or family as he is extremely professional and attentive to both parties. Regards Andrew

Mark was very helpful throughout the whole process

Mark was a pleasure to deal with,he always kept me informed and explained the sale process in detail. Mark went the extra mile and I couldn’t be happier with the final result.

Outstanding Agent

Mark knows the local market. Due to his years of experience, he is very discerning at knowing a serious buyer. Mark communicated with me very effectively, even though our dealings were long distance. Mark was even able to calm me during some of the more stressful experiences. I would highly recommend Mark.

Positive attitude, made me feel confident in ability to sell

Mark has been an absolute professional in relation to selling our home. He was also approachable, contactable and available for our many questions throughout the process. Our sale process, although stressful, was quite quick and this was due to Marks local knowledge and commitment. Thank you Mark.

Mark was our real estate agent who sold our home

Mark kept me informed of the progress of the selling process and of the other competing properties in the area. this gave me a better perspective on the situation and so could make a more informed decision and a good outcome

Always kept me informed
