Go with Mark

Great value, especially for higher priced homes! Flat fee and all expectations are explained up-front. Mark is responsive and helpful, he took care of everything – handling most questions by text (great for my busy schedule). If I sell another home, I will definitely choose him again.

Mark is your guy!

We are so very thrilled we found Mark Phillips and Hill Country Flat Fee Realty! From the first time we talked with Mark on the phone, we knew we wanted to work with him. His in-depth knowledge and desire to save us money while providing a full-service listing was a no-brainer. We had multiple offers above listing price and were under contract on the first day. If you are looking for someone to list your house and save you a lot of money, don’t look any further – Mark is your guy!

You cannot go wrong with Mark!

We were referred to Mark Phillips at Hill Country Flat Fee Realty from a friend when we told him we had decided to move. We were so happy we had Mark for our realtor. His pictures and video were so impressive. It truly looked as if they were done by a professional. We knew our home would sell quick once we listed and Mark was there with us every step of the way.

He took the pictures on a Monday and the video and pics went live on the MLS on Wednesday. We had 13 showings on Friday, 2 Saturday morning and by 2 pm Saturday afternoon we had 6 offers with 5 above asking price.

We were also give the option to choose the percentage paid to the buyer’s realtor too which was not an option with other realtors. Mark’s flat fee was the way to go. We saved over $9000 by going with Mark. I feel bad because I feel he worked way harder than the buyer’s realtor and earned less than their realtor. We highly recommend him. He was professional, always answered calls and emails and went way above and beyond to make sure we received good service. Book an appointment with him. You will not regret it.

In this day, it is a real pleasure to find a true professional that actually provides what is promised. You cannot go wrong with Mark Phillips with Hill Country Flat Fee Realty.

We saved so much money!

Mark was knowledgeable, prompt, communicated well, and executed the plan that was set in place! Using Mark’s knowledge of the area, he sold our home in 2 days to one of his buyers. We literally SAVED nearly $30,000 in commission fees! Thank you Mark for the easiest home sale we’ve ever had!

Mark knocked it out of the park!

My wife and I were truly blessed to have found Mark on google. We interviewed 3 different realtors before we chose Mark. The reasons why we even reached out to Mark to begin with was because of his flat fee realty pricing on selling homes. We knew our home would sell very fast so why pay full commission price and we wanted to move out towards the Hill Country area and Mark, based upon his company name, might be a good fit for our needs in finding a new home in the Hill Country.

For our first appointment he was on time, prepared with comps from our neighborhood and was very professional and personable. He took the photos of our home, himself, and when we saw the preview of the listing, his preview was way more impressive than ones done by the other realtors we interviewed, who had professional photographers take their client’s pictures. We had three offers on the first day of listing all at or above asking price. We accepted the cash offer so we could close quickly. The selling process with Mark was quick and efficient.

Where Mark really stood out was when we went looking for our new home. We found a home that was for sale by owner. It was a home that my wife, both our boys, and I all fell in love with. We didn’t think it was possible to find a home we would all love. To put it mildly the seller was very disorganized and really had no idea of what was required on his part in selling a house. Mark essentially pulled double duty and had to hold the seller’s hand throughout the process as well as ours. He took phone calls from us during his family time and probably did some errands for the seller that a seller’s agent typically wouldn’t do, just to get the deal done on time.

There is so much more I left out, in regards to the difficulties in buying the house, from this particular for sale by owner, that it would take two more paragraphs and still wouldn’t do justice to Mark’s efforts.

You can feel very comfortable with Mark being your realtor whether you are buying or selling a home in San Antonio or the Hill Country. My wife and I were looking for a realtor and we found a friend .

Thank you for everything Mark.

Go with Mark!

Mark is professional, knowledgeable and experienced. He guided me in the purchase process of my new home and the sale of my previous home. In both instances his fee structure saved me thousands of dollars. His involvement with the process made everything seamless and more importantly – simple. During the process he maintained constant communication, offering not just updates but advice and guidance. Mark is a great individual – very down-to-earth but professional and cares about his clients. You can’t go wrong with Hill Country Flat Fee Realty. Mark will get your property sold and will save you a ton of money!

Exceptional Service!

My family moved to San Antonio recently and one of my friends introduced us to Mark as the best real-estate agent he had ever dealt with. He is not wrong. First and foremost, Mark is a decent human being who genuinely cares about providing you and your family with a comfortable home. His knowledge of real-estate and the ins-and-outs of all the neighborhoods is remarkable. And he knows everybody… he is like the unofficial mayor of San Antonio. He helped us with securing all the peripheral services we needed, was always responsive, and even gave us a heads up when he thought one of his associates was giving a self-interested piece of advice… He was patient through the long process. Great sense of humor. Very competent and professional. I have dealt with agents many times before. I now resent the fact that my previous experiences were not as smooth as this one. Recommend him 100%.

Go with Mark!

Almost went with usual 3% agent to sell our house in San Antonio after interviewing a handful. Then we hit some bumps with the agent before signing with them. We decided to go back to the drawing board and then found Mark’s website. Not only did he save us almost 10k in fees but he also helped sell our house for 7k more than the other agents wanted to list it at in only 10 days. It was an easy sell and I highly recommend Hill Country Flat Fee Realty.

Hill Country Flat Fee works!

Mark is really good at what he does. He is a true professional and works really hard for his clients. He always kept us informed and told us the truth no matter how hard it was to hear. He saved us a ton of money when he sold our home in a competitive market. From this point on I will only use Mark for all of my real estate transactions.

A No Brainer!

While selling our San Antonio home, we had an excellent experience with Mark at Hill Country Flat Fee Realty. He’s responsive, professional and gives the advice sellers are looking. He knows the market well and his model is a no brainer, why would you pay a full service broker when you can get the same service at a huge discount? There really is no catch here, Marks the real deal!

We saved over $25,000! Honestly!

I was looking for a flat fee realtor in the Hill Country of Texas when I came across Mark Phillips. I chose him
of course because he did not charge the 3% fee other selling brokers charge, and his website indicated he
was a FULL SERVICE BROKER, while others offered some services but not full service. He took his own
pictures of my home, including drone footage, and used them in setting up the MLS in a very professional
manner as good or better than other brokers. Managed the time of the showings and always gave me feed
back in a timely manner on comments of potential buyers. Handled the closing from PSA, through a few
addendum’s, to final step of selling with Title Company. Oh, and did I mention, he saved me in excess of

Totally Honest Realtor!

Totally Honest Realtor!

Having Mark as our Realtor has been a wonderful experience. We enjoyed his down-to-earth and fun demeanor. We asked a lot of questions throughout the process. He will be totally honest with you and will share advice based on experience. I would recommend him to anyone buying or selling. We did both and he handled both transactions effortlessly, saving us thousands in the process!!!

Mark saved me so much money!!

Mark is an awesome agent. He went above and beyond to help me sell my property, which was a lengthy process with many twists and turns. Always in constant contact with great advice. Plus he saved me literally thousands and thousands of dollars in commissions compared to what other agents wanted to charge me. I highly recommend his services.

Mark Saves us Thousands!

Mark saved us $13,000 over a traditional Realtor by quickly selling our house in Limestone Ranch during the height of the pandemic in Spring 2020. He was always easy to reach and responded back quickly. He is so courteous and professional. His flat fee business model for $3995.00 was perfect for us (he has other less expensive options too). We very highly recommended Mark. It was the smoothest closing we’ve ever had and we saved so much money in the process compared to what other traditional real estate agents would have charged. Call Hill Country Flat Fee Realty!

Mark's like an old friend!

Mark is professional, knowledgeable, and although we had no prior relationship with him, working with him felt like working with an old friend. In our situation, I separated from the AF in 2019 but kept a home in SA so my daughter could graduate from Brandeis High School… then came Covid. The uncertainty of the housing market in early 2020 rattled us a bit, but Mark expertly and compassionately helped us navigate the market and saw the contract through to closing without a hitch. We can’t recommend him highly enough. Brent and Diane Martin

Why would you use anyone else?

Why isn’t everyone using Mark Phillips to sell their home????!!

My husband and I called Mark to discuss listing our home in New Braunfels and he was very quick to reply to us and set up an appointment. We were absolutely delighted to meet with Mark at our home and discuss pricing and how we wanted showings to be scheduled, etc. The centralized showing feature is the best!! Mark did an exceptional job of marketing our home with stunning photos and virtual tour and fantastic description of our home. We had our first showing the day our home was listed and we accepted a fantastic offer from that first showing. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience than what we had with Mark; he truly provided a full service, professional experience from start to finish and we saved thousands of dollars with his flat fee model!

Thanks Mark!

Wow-Mark's system works!

I called Mark Phillips of Hill Country Flat Fee Realty to see what his system was all about.  I had heard an ad on the radio in Kerrville, Texas and thought there must be some sort of catch to his offer.  Not only did Mark thoroughly explain his full service, low flat fee listing system, he also told me about three other options he offers that are even less money (they are almost like FSBO’s, but with more service).

I have sold several properties and have a pretty decent amount of experience and felt I would try one of Mark’s “MLS Only” options, as I was going to try to sell it as a FSBO.  The “MLS Only” option I selected allowed for the home to be placed into the MLS, which is what I really wanted.  I chose the “MLS Only Plus” option, as it came with a virtual tour that Mark came out and photographed and created. The virtual tour Mark built was simply spectacular!

In less than 2 days, the home was under contract!  I was getting several calls from potential buyers, primarily due to Mark’s fantastic virtual tour and social media marketing he did for us!

I sold the home to a buyer who fell in love with it (I personally built the home) and have no doubt that Mark’s virtual tour and marketing was the key to me getting it sold so quickly!

I saved over $12,000 in commission compared to a 6% listing, as I was able to sell it to a buyer directly who was not represented by an agent.

If you are a home owner in the Texas Hill Country and are thinking about selling your home, I highly suggest you call Mark Phillips of Hill Country Flat Fee Realty, as he will create a powerful marketing strategy and will save you so much money when you sell!

Mark was awesome & saved us $$!

We called Mark Phillips at Hill Country Flat Fee Realty after hearing an advertisement on the radio. We were very interested about the flat fee he was talking about.
As soon as Mark walks in your door he’s like your best friend and wants to help you with your life and future.
He helped us through some tough real estate problems and gave great advice every step of the way. He’s very intelligent and down to earth at the same time.
His marketing approach is amazing! He did a fantastic job of taking pictures, virtual tour, and even aerial views of our home, pool, garages, outbuildings, and property!
After seeing his work we wondered why we were selling in the first place!
After only 4 hours listed on the internet we had a contract with 30 days to close.
Mark saved us over $6,200.00 with his flat fee real estate commission. That’s real money we can use for our new home!
Thank you Mark, we recommend you to anyone who wants a great realtor and friend!

Mark hit a home run!

In March of 2018, my wife and I hired a reputable realtor to sell our home in Boerne, TX.  Although we had some showings, we never had any offers.  The realtor’s communication skills and attention to our needs was sub-par, at best.  In fact, we were usually the driving force behind most of our communications and strategy sessions.
With no luck for for nearly 10 months, we switched to Mark Phillips with Hill Country Flat Fee Realty.  Within a few days, we had several showings, and within a few weeks, we had an offer for near-asking price.  Not only did we save a significant amount of funds by going with Mark, but we also sold the home for the price for which he predicted we’d sell.
While Mark’s advertising of our home was excellent, his communication skills and ability to convey important information to us and prospective buyers’ realtors was superior.  Mark made us feel like we were his only client and his number one priority at all times.
Simply put, you cannot go wrong with Mark Phillips and Hill Country Flat Fee Realty!

Superb Service & Huge Savings!

Do NOT think twice about calling Mark Phillips of Hill Country Flat Fee Realty to sell your house or help you buy a new one! Admittedly, Mark is a good friend of ours, but we know his character & work ethic is solid. We also wanted to maximize as much of our equity as possible and with Mark’s flat fee commission model, we did exactly that!

We have no doubt that the virtual tour Mark built for us helped sell our home quickly. Mark spent three hours at our home, making sure each room was perfectly staged and well lit. He took multiple pictures of each room, the exterior, the backyard/pool, our guest house and even did some video recordings. Mark didn’t stop there. He then drove to our HOA park that has a private pond & tennis courts and took more photos and videos.

Within a matter of just a few weeks, Mark had our home under contract to an out of the area buyer. Mark’s internet marketing works! His system would email us weekly and show us exactly how many people were viewing our home through his virtual tour that was also connected to all of the big sites as well.

Bottom line-You want to sell your home and save a lot of money in the process and have an experienced broker taking care of everything? Then, we would highly suggest you call Mark Phillips with Hill Country Flat Fee Realty. Compared to a 6% listing, we saved over $16,000 in commissions when Mark sold our home!  Yes, $16,000 real dollars!!

Call Mark…you won’t regret it!

Why would you use anyone else?

We chose Mark and Hill Country Flat Fee Realty to list/market our Fair Oaks Ranch (Deer Meadows) home because we knew Mark’s tract record of selling many properties in the Hill Country and probably more importantly, we were not interested in paying such high real estate commissions. Mark created an excellent virtual tour, as well as high resolution photos, that highlighted our home’s features and uniqueness.

After our listing went live, we were thrilled to see it all over the internet on so many different sites. Within 16 hours of going live, we had an offer and multiple showings. In fact, multiple offers were received. Mark carefully evaluated each offer with us and pointed out the advantages of each offer.

Mark’s communication with us throughout the process was superb. He kept us informed during the entire transaction from listing to closing. We sold our home for over 97% of what we were asking for and Mark had it sold on the very first day on the market.

If you are looking for a real estate professional who is competent, honest, knows how to highlight & market your home and you want to save a ton of money in the process, you need to call Mark Phillips of Hill Country Flat Fee Realty. Compared to a 6% listing, Mark saved us $10,800!  That was $10,800 dollars back in our pocket!

Hill Country Flat Fee Realty is the way to go!

593775964c485We just bought a home in Boerne and thanks to Mark Phillips of Hill Country Flat Fee Realty, it seemed effortless.  He’s straight forward, honest, hands on and has your back during the entire process. We could call or text him anytime and he was always there to answer our questions or come up with a perfect solution!


He’s professional and knowledgable about the market and was always in touch with us.  It has been a pleasure to have him represent us as our Realtor.  We look forward and feel at ease knowing he will be selling our other home in Leon Springs and can’t wait to see how much of our own equity we save through Mark’s model!  We also appreciated receiving a buyer rebate check (several thousands of dollars) back from Mark after our recent purchase!

This is a NO-BRAINER!

566f92cbccc6dI rarely write reviews or testimonials, but in this case I felt compelled to do so.  My wife and I have bought and sold more than a few homes and were always frustrated by the expense and the service we received from Realtors.

This drastically changed when we met Mark Phillips of Hill Country Flat Fee Realty.  You would think that with Mark’s more than fair discount commission structure, you would receive less service and less attention to detail, but Mark provided just the opposite.  We received, by far, the most professional service we’ve ever experienced in working with a Realtor. Mark truly cares about his clients and his committed to doing what is in their best interest.

When you can receive far better service at a substantially discounted price, it’s truly foolish to work with any other Realtor.

562e2655b58ebMark – Tom and I wanted to let you know that we appreciated all of the help you gave us in the search for our new home.  We thoroughly enjoyed working with you during what was a very stressful time for us.  We needed to find a new home in a very short time and you were definitely up to the task.  Tom and I know that we were not the easiest clients to work with but you made it look effortless.  I think this is because you truly love helping people find their perfect home.  You went above and beyond, expanding the search area in and around Boerne, San Antonio and New Braunfels, graciously taking us to see a large number of homes until we found the perfect home.  Once we found the perfect place you were able to help us close on the home in an amazing 30 days without a hiccup.  Tom and I highly recommend Mark to anyone who wants an agent who not only listens to your requirements, but understands the market and will make looking for a new home fun and almost painless.  We will most certainly be using Mark if we ever need to sell our home in the future.

Best Regards, Tom and Susan

Receiving the buyers rebate check at closing was an added bonus!

54e22efd09d7aMark provided the highest level of professional service for us. He was always available throughout the process and worked very hard to close our deal! Best of all was the Buyer Rebate we received! It was better than any other closing gift we had ever received!

Steve and Sharon

54e22ebd73255Mark-I want to sincerely thank you for going the extra mile for Sharon and I during the purchase of our wonderful home in the Hill Country! We were blown away by how on top of the transaction you were the entire time. We immediately knew we were in good hands just listening to you speak with the builder’s sales agent. It was clear you knew what questions to ask in terms of what construction materials were used, what standard features were included, pointing out the value of the home based on square footage, etc. We really appreciated you negotiating strong on our behalf and getting the builder to include window blinds as well as the water softener even when it looked like the builder was not going to budge on these items. Sharon and I aren’t sure if we appreciated your hard work and professionalism the most or the reduction in price to the tune of thousands of dollars we received from your Buyer Rebate Program. Either way, we truly want to thank you for going the extra mile for us. We won’t forget it when it comes to sell the home someday (not for a long time!).

Paul and Jen

54e22ede8adc8Mark-Jen and I just wanted to thank you again for all you did for us on our recent purchase of our home in Boerne Texas. We were impressed at how quickly you were able to determine what we wanted and then how quickly you were able to come up with a list of properties that fit our list of “wants”. You were very professional yet very patient with us and it was obvious you understood and respected the fact that this was a big decision for us. We were also so impressed at how well you communicated with everyone involved in the transaction. We received several positive comments from our lender and the other professionals involved in the transaction. You represented us so well and we are confident you got us the best deal possible on the dream home we bought. I’m sure you won’t mind us passing on our experience with anyone else looking to buy or sell a home in the Boerne Texas area. Thanks again, Paul and Jen
