I would like to provide testimonial as to my experience with Mark Mclaughlin in selling my 1970 Bonanza V3SB.
First off a little background on my experience prior to having Mark broker my aircraft. As one might expect, the market for buyers of aircraft between 2008 and present is full of predatory buyers. The economic climate forced many owners to sell. Buyers were acutely aware of this and often made ridiculously low offers.
I, on the other hand, was not in this situation. I simply chose to sell my aircraft because I had work and family obligations that just didn’t leave me enough time to fly.
My airplane was in mint condition, full of the latest avionics and original interior. I tried selling my aircraft with 3 other brokers, all promising to sell the airplane for a very high price and in short order. Each broker came up short, if at all. I tried selling it on my own by listing it on Trade-A-Plane and ASO.com. Each time the contract or listing expired with zero results.
I came to know Mark after getting frustrated with other brokers and my own attempts of selling the airplane.
Mark’s promises were not all that different from the other brokers ….with one exception ….he delivered exactly what he said he would do. Once I signed the broker agreement, I gave Mark the keys, and logbooks. Mark analyzed my airplane and installed equipment and we agreed on a minimum sales price.
After that, it was approximately three weeks until Mark called me with an offer. One more phone call from Mark with some negotiations post pre-buy inspection, and a few signatures on the sales agreement ….and it was done. Start to finish Mark delivered every-thing he said he would ….and after close to 2 years of trying on my own … Mark had it sold in less than 4 weeks.
I can say with 100% I would recommend using Mark to sell your aircraft. Mark and I probably had a total of 5 phone conversations. The process was simple and hassle free.
If you want to sell your airplane, Mark is the solution. Feel free to contact me if you want more details or have any questions
