Mark has helped us purchase a house twice as well as sell our house. He possesses a great amount of knowledge of real estate in the Okanagan and his experience is definitely an asset. He did an exceptional job of negotiating on our behalf with each sell/purchase and we always know that we are in good hands with an agent we can trust to have our best interests in mind!
I have dealt with Mark several times. I have referred him to friends and they always come back and say what a great experience. He is a pro and offers peace of mind because he covers all the bases during the buying process. Plus, his wife is a looker.
Does Mark Gidden take looking after his clients seriously? Does Phil Mickleson take his golf game seriously? Mark is as much of a pro as Phil—hard work, skill, and serious attention to detail. I recommend him to anyone either looking for or listing a home in Kelowna.
Mark sold my house and also got us into our new home. Mark exuded confidence and trust from the first meeting and he maintained a great sense of calm throughout the selling and buying process. He had my house sold 3 days after listing on MLS despite it being a “buyers market” and he managed to bring me competing offers! I was happy to accept the price I was looking for and my expectations were not only met but exceeded. The sales negotiations could not have gone better and I knew I could rely on his years of experience to ensure that everything fell into place as planned. The buying process was equally positive. Mark ensured that the seller of our new place fulfilled every obligation and terms of the sales agreement. He checked and double checked every detail. I would not use another realtor and I’m very grateful for a friend having recommended Mark to me. Thanks and Happy selling!
We engaged Mark’s services to sell our home and subsequently assist us with the purchase of another home. Throughout both processes we have been extremely happy with Mark’s professional approach and attention to detail. In addition, his background in home construction has been invaluable to us on many occasions. Mark has a relaxed but effective way of dealing with people, and is a pleasure to work with. We would highly recommend Mark to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
I met Mark 13 years ago when we bought our first home in Kelowna. He was instrumental in our move to the Okanagan, guiding a young family from Calgary through the Kelowna Market, helping us find the perfect house. Since then I have referred Mark to family and friends and turned to him to help us sell our home this past Winter.
Mark is a true professional who has exceeded our expectations. Despite being a “buyers market”, Mark maintained a sense of calm throughout the process, during a time when some would panic and make emotional decisions. With over 27 years of negotiating experience he put a deal together that we were happy to except.
There is no one I trust more, and I will continue to refer Mark to family, friends and clients for their real estate needs.

Mark guided us through a purchase of our new home. Mark did a wonderful job in managing a complex seller. Mark was calm and professional throughout the process and kept logic over emotions in the negotiations. The follow up after the sale was also excellent, taking on tasks that were not in his scope of work. I would recommend Mark and his team to anyone looking to buy or sell.
Mark helped us look for, negotiate, and purchase our family home. He was diligent, extremely professional and has an unsurpassed knowledge of the Kelowna and wider Okanagan areas. His name is mentioned anytime we have a friend looking to buy or sell their home. Many thanks Mark.
Hope to buy with you again soon – thanks again!
