By RSIR Staff |

Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty (RSIR) global real estate advisor Mark Middleton’s sale of his client’s waterfront Bainbridge Island home sold in an impressive 18 days for $6,150,000, marking this sale as the highest of Mark’s long career and the largest sales price ever on Country Club Road. The real estate market on Bainbridge Island is unique, and even more so on the island’s sought-after waterfront, with some of the highest-valued properties in the Puget Sound region. The Country Club Road home not only set a personal record for Mark but also ranked in the top 10 highest MLS-recorded sales on the island.

When Mark Middleton’s clients approached him about listing their home with views of Puget Sound, the Cascades, and Seattle, he knew that creating a story through professional videography, custom branding, a dynamic website, and more, was the avenue to reach the right buyer for this exceptional property. For a property of this caliber, capturing both its interior and exterior beauty through visual elements allowed buyers searching for a waterfront estate to fully appreciate the remarkable qualities, like 100 feet of low-bank beachfront, that make this home truly unique. Suzy Legier, Mark’s wife and collaborator, is an interior designer and master home stager. Staging the Country Club Road property was one of the first steps in painting the picture.

Throughout Mark’s career, he’s listed a varied portfolio of properties and understands how to highlight a home’s best features, crafting a narrative through RSIR’s marketing materials and his team’s services to present buyers with the essence of the home, its distinctive details, and the lifestyle it inspires. “The marketing tools and brand awareness that Sotheby’s International Realty brings puts me and my clients in a league of our own,” says Mark.

As Mark knows, it’s one thing to have an extraordinary listing on your hands, but it’s another to ensure that news of the listing, and an eye-catching, strategic presentation of it, make it to interested parties. In a result that epitomizes the power of RSIR’s network and spirit of collaboration, the home’s buyer was represented by Mark’s fellow RSIR Bainbridge Island brokers, Georg Syvertsen, Arthur Mortell, and Beckey Anderson. The international brand’s esteemed brokers have access to both a regional and global real estate network. “RSIR’s strength is in the rewarding relationships our collective of brokers build with each other,” says RSIR President and CEO Dean Jones about the ethos of the brand. “We’re thrilled for Mark’s successful sale on the island he knows so well, and the fact that RSIR brokers represented clients on both sides of this transaction is emblematic of the remarkable connections within our community.”

Mark Middleton’s roots on Bainbridge Island run deep—he grew up there, has lived there for over four decades, and has served the island’s residents through his real estate expertise for over 18 years. For Mark, selling his clients’ homes is more than listing them on the market—it’s how you list them that makes magic happen. “Knowing that I am backed by a team, like Suzy and the RSIR marketing professionals, who are just as committed to achieving success on behalf of my clients as I am, allows me to dedicate the full extent of my resources to each interaction,” Mark says.
