About Mark and Jennifer Monge
Read what others are saying about Mark and Jennifer Monge.
Mark and Jenny were simply amazing to work with! They brought loads of experience and expertise to the home sale process. We were struggling with a different company to turn showings into offers. We hired Mark and Jennifer and and they provided the perfect amount of real, down to earth, constructive feedback on some things we could do better. Within a week we were relisted with The Monge Team and had virtual tours, virtual showings, drone shots, and GoPro footage advertising our listing. The listing could not have been formulated any better! Seriously, who brings a drone and GoPro to sell a home? These guys do! And that's how serious they take listings, and that's how much they care about their clients. Within 22 days we had a 98% of the list price our of home, and did I mention they did this all in a global pandemic? Simply world class from The Monge Team!
Without a doubt if you are selling your home you need to leave it to Mark and Jennifer Monge. They were spot on with what we needed to do with our home both listing price and how to get it show ready. Their market analysis was very helpful and their continued knowledge and professionalism was way beyond our expectations! We only wish they could have found our new place in Texas!
Mark is extremely knowledgeable in the market and well connected with potential buyers and sellers. We have worked with him to successfully buy and sell several homes. He was always responsive whether it was to view a home or to dig up neighborhood information.
Mark was very professional to work with. His knowledge of the Peoria housing market is exceptional! Working with Mark and his team was a pleasurable experience.
Mark did an awesome job in helping me to sell my home. He understood my needs and gave his input to put us in best position to make a sale. We sold our home in 5 days and all wrapped up without any issues. I highly recommend him for anyone looking to buy or sell in Peoria County!
We had an EXCELLENT experience with Mark Monge. He is definitely Peoria's top realtor. Mark's attention to detail and our needs was fantastic. His experience and in depth knowledge of the Dunlap area helps you make very informed decisions when buying or selling (we have done both with him over the years) We have had experience with other realtors....they CANNOT compare to Mark in ANY department of real estate. Mark is your guy if you want to list OR buy. We can't give him enough praise.
Mark was a great resource from the very first meeting, as he took the time to understand our needs / desires and identified a handful of properties to walk through. Ultimately, we ended up deciding to build a house and Mark was valuable throughout the process. In terms of selling my current house, Mark was easy to work with in determining the right time to put the house on the market, as well as suggested updates prior to listing. Through Mark's marketing efforts, the property was under contract in 7 days! Overall, working with Mark was the best decision we made and will look to use him in the future!
Mark was a pleasure to work with. He always had the most up to date info to ensure we remained focused in our search. He was always available and an absolute professional. He provided great advice and helped us negotiate the best deal for our family. Highly recommend!
I will definitely recommend Mark. He is very professional, thorough, and accommodating as well. He listens to the customers and does what is right for the customers. I had to get things fixed at my house before selling and he was very helpful by providing reference to contractors to the job done.
Mark is a very hard working and determined person who always maintained a very pleasant and polite demeanor. He always responded promptly to my phone messages and was willing to come by the house to consult with us whenever we asked. He was very professional at all times. I would recommend Mark to anyone wanting to sell their home.
Very satisfied with the Monge Team process and results. Staging consultant gave good home prep advice and photographer took excellent listing photos. Also enjoyed the drone footage Mark took. Mark's response time on questions was good and he was happy to stop by to verify lights off and doors locked after several showings while we were out of town. He also took care of the closing for us. Bottom line was a quick sale in a depressed market at a fair price - can't really ask for more than that!
Jennifer and Mark were amazing. I can't say enough! They eased our fears of selling and buying a house. I felt we were in very capable hands. We couldn't be more pleased!
Mark took a lot of time to evaluate our house and our needs and it paid off. We met several times to discuss ideas and options to market our home successfully. We would highly recommend Mark and his team
After having our house on the market for nearly a year with another realtor, we switched to Mark, and received an offer three months later. Mark also worked out some complications in negotiations with the buyer, resulting in a good result for both. During the entire process, Mark kept excellent communication with us!
Mark and his team were very helpful and accommodating through the process of selling my house. Their responses to my questions and concerns were always quickly delivered and helpful. They made the entire process smooth and easy.
We really enjoyed working with Mark. He was knowledgeable and serviced us well. Not having sold a home in 38 years, he gave us great advice on getting our house ready, marketing it for us, and guiding us through the final details. It sold in less than a week!
Mark took the time to talk us through the process of selling our first home. He provided excellent pictures and video to showcase the home. He and his staff responded quickly to any questions I had pertaining to selling our home. Mark is very knowledgeable and an experienced realtor. My husband and I would highly recommend Mark and his team!
We purchased a home through the “Caterpillar Market Sustainability Program.” We received several incentives including the purchase of our previous home. Mark was very familiar with the process and helped us navigate the system. Mark also gave a simple tip that helped lower our interest rate by a small percentage. With a less experienced realtor, I don't think the process would have gone nearly as well. Mark has recommended other wonderful local services that have assisted us in updates of our new home. I will be recommending Mark to my friends and family in the future.
Mark and Jennifer did an amazing job. They were very thorough, came to us with a very detailed plan on how to sell our home in a market that was less than ideal, and sold it in one day. In addition, Mark and Jennifer are very familiar with relocation companies as there are additional rules that must be followed. My husband and I are extremely happy with the services provided by The Monge Team.
Mark was extremely attentive to our needs, which weren't insignificant. He hired a photographer who provided beautiful pictures of our home. Mark also posted drone photographs, which showed the setting of our lakefront property. We were given regular updates, and never felt like he was not part of the team. The market analysis was detailed and updated when appropriate.
Mark is very knowledgeable and easy to work with. His demeanor is relaxed but his work ethic is anything but. Mark will go above and beyond while making it look (and feel) easy to the client, making a sometimes stressful and overwhelming process, easy and enjoyable. We would highly recommend Mark Monge.
Mark and Jennifer are professionals who know the market and specifically Sommer Place and Chadwick. The prep was extensive with photo shoots and drone video production but didn't require us to do much. Listing and pricing strategy was collaborative and when showings were being scheduled the app made it easy to know how to prep and/or vacate. We sold in 2 days above list! Amazing team, prompt/responsive and a great experience!
This was our second real estate transaction with Mark and his team. They are professional in every way and we would highly recommend them. Our first transaction was in 2009.
We used Mark and his team to sell our home. He is great with marketing, very knowledgeable about the local market, and incredibly accessible and responsive. Given the volume of properties he is working with, I honestly don’t know how he does it. Mark and his team made the process really simple and painless, which I appreciate. And… we were able to get a very fair price for the house in a really challenging market, sooner than we expected! All in all, we couldn’t have asked for more than that. Highly recommended!
Mark and Jennifer Monge did an excellent job with the sale of our home. Despite a tough market we were able to sell sooner than we had hoped. Their advice on staging and in negotiating the sale were extremely helpful.
The process of selling and preparing a house to sell after the loss of a loved one is incredibly overwhelming on every level. Mark and Jennifer could not have been more professional, caring and putting a little humor in the mix of this emotional journey. I would highly recommend them to anyone selling a house. They WILL make it happen! :)
Mark and Jennifer were excellent to work with. They knew how to market our house effectively and even brought in an outside consultant to help us prep and stage our house for quick sale. Mark was very well organized and always seemed on top of things. I never had to prod, he was always responsive. His level of communication was excellent and his knowledge of the market was second to none. We trusted his judgement on what it took to sell our house. Well done Mark.
Mark and Jennifer went above and beyond with customer service. Always willing to help. Their photographer really takes excellent photos, which is a must in helping to sell your home. Thank you Mark and Jennifer.
Fantastic experience with Mark. We had limited time and a narrow search criteria and Mark exceeded our expectations. Mark's deep expertise of the market helped us find the right home and made the buying process painless. Would very much enjoy the change to work with him again!
Mark Monge was extremely knowledgeable of the housing market and shared his knowledge and experience with us. He readily provided all the information we requested and above, all was extremely patient and professional with us in the process of buying our house. We were demanding buyers and he never showed any sign of impatience with us. He was friendly, open and available when needed, generous with his time, and responded quickly to any request we made. My wife and I both agree he was amazing.
Mark and Jennifer were absolutely wonderful! We contracted with them to both sell our house and assist us in finding a new house in the Peoria area. In all aspects, they are very attentive to details and always put forth the extra effort. Their knowledge of the area is second to none. I think that the efforts and expense they put into the sale of our house really helped us to get 8 showings and an offer on our house in only 7 days. On the purchase side, they were always patient with our questions and they paid attention to the details we were looking for in a new home. They never pushed us in a direction we weren't interested in and honored our wishes. They were always respectful and did a great deal to educate us on the process and in making decisions. I learned a lot and greatly enjoyed working with them throughout both sides of the process. I would highly recommend to anyone who is buying or selling real estate in the area.
We thoroughly enjoyed working with Mark and highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Mark and his team have a complete understanding of the market, their client's needs, and their industry. Mark is very responsive and available for his clients and always makes you feel like a priority. Even though we were selling our house while living abroad, Mark and his team made the process much easier than we could have hoped for. It was a huge comfort knowing we could always trust his expertise and advocating for our best interest.
Mark was a great pleasure to work with and made my home buying experience more enjoyable. He is very knowledgeable of the housing market and will share open and honest feedback of what to expect (does not just tell you what you want to hear). This quality alone is a great characteristic to find in a realtor! Very pleased with his service and the quality of his work. Highly recommend Mark as your realtor of choice!
Mark did a great job for us. We reached out to him about 3 weeks prior to our house-hunting trip and asked a few questions. He was immediately available and let us know a few key pieces of information about the area and the home we were interested in. Once we arrived, Mark was prompt and was willing to spend as much time with us as possible. He knows the area very well and can answer any question you have. He is professional and someone you can trust. I would highly recommend Mark for your real estate needs.
Professional and knowledgeable about the housing market. We had been using his services since 1999 and we were able to sell the house very quickly. I would highly recommend Mark Monge for Peoria, Dunlap area.
My wife and I recently listed and sold our home with Mark Monge after researching the many available realtors in the area. I have dealt with other realtors over the years, but I must say that Mark was absolutely the BEST! He was very prompt with follow-ups after showings, and he honestly cared about us as people not just as "a sale." I would never do business with anyone but Mark.
Integrity, market knowledge, and willingness to go above and beyond throughout the listing and selling process; Mark, Jennifer, and their team can be expected to exceed your expectations. We definitely recommend!
Mark came out to our home, prepared with a binder full of comparative market information, as well as months of sale averages. He was very prompt in answering any of our questions and actively looked for buyers. He has a clear, accurate knowledge of the Peoria (Dunlap) area. This is our second time using Mark as our realtor and would use his services again.
When we were looking to buy a home, we searched for a professional, full-time realtor who really knew the Peoria area—someone who could provide us with an honest assessment of the neighborhoods we were considering and help us locate that “perfect” house. Finding Mark Monge and his team, we got all that and more. Not only do they know the real estate business inside and out, they were also a great resource for recommending local contractors and businesses to us. Since then, we have bought and sold a few homes with the help of Mark’s team. And we’re so happy with our current home—one that we would likely not have gotten without Mark’s guidance and negotiating skills. I can’t imagine another realtor team that offers all that Mark and the Monge Team provide.
Mark is extremely knowledgeable about the Central Illinois market and was a pleasure to work with. He went above and beyond his normal duties and responsibilities to help make our move as seamless as possible.
Very impressive, professional, knowledgeable, expert and looks after his client's interests and what is best for them. He is definitely someone who you could rely on and would work hard to get his client best deals. He is very sincere and would tell you if a particular price or option or anything else is good for you or not.
Mark went above and beyond for us! Checking on the house regularly and finding contractors to fix/paint. We were very happy with the pictures and marketing of our home! Thank you for everything!
Mark is very knowledgeable about the local market and implemented a sound marketing strategy to get our home sold. He provided timely feedback and suggestions. Mark has a positive attitude and is easy to work with. He went above and beyond in his service. Thank you Mark!
Mark is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the Peoria market. He was exceptional at making the process easy, or as simple as it could be. And, he really knew what to work through in negotiating the offer to a successful conclusion. I would highly recommend Mark. Buying/selling a home is too important to trust to a lesser experienced agent.
Mark was always there for all our questions and concerns and helped us to take decisions about our house pricing. He helped us giving recommendations that ended up saving us money and time. We are glad that he was our agent.
We trusted our move with Mark Monge both in buying our home when we came to the area and selling our home leaving the area. Mark is very professional, supportive and responsive. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone searching for an agent.
Mark Monge and "The Monge Home Team" at Jim Maloof Realtor is the BEST. Mark and his team are the most professional group to work with and they pay attention to every little detail to help you prepare your home for sale from start to finish. Mark's group is extremely professional and I highly recommend using them. I have had the pleasure of working with Mark on both sides of the buying & selling process. If you're looking to work with the best...give Mark and his team a call.
Mark was very professional and quick to answer any questions. The marketing was excellent and our home sold quickly. Mark is one of very few Realtors today that still dresses the part. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a Realtor.
Mark Monge is a very good Real Estate Agent and I am happy to choose him as my agent to sale my property in Dunlap, IL. He is professional, courteous and knows his job very well. The market was very adverse but still he worked very hard to sell my property. He kept on giving all feedback to make the house more and more presentable in front of client was very useful. My recommendation is 10 out of 10 for his nice work with my property. I wish him all the success in his profession.
We were very pleased with Mark's service. Prompt reply to questions. Always ready to be the "devil's advocate" to explain all factors with the issues. We would high recommend Mark and Jennifer to friends and family.
Since moving to Peoria, we've used the Monge Home Team to buy and sell all our homes. We feel fortunate to have discovered such a personable, professional, and knowledgeable Realtor in Mark. We really enjoy working with him-we don't know why everyone doesn't use him and his team!
I would like to take a moment to extend to you my appreciation for your extraordinary efforts on my behalf. The selling of my property in Peoria was a testament to your knowledge and thoroughness. The maintaining of a temperature in the home to prevent a freeze up in this most difficult winter, while I was away, I consider that to be above and beyond what is expected of a Realtor. You did it and I am grateful.
It was a rewarding and educational experience on selling real estate and more so in the promptness, thoughtfulness and courtesy of the way you conduct yourself. The returned text messages, emails.., many of which were long distance, the many questions promptly answered and the way you handled the whole scenario from start to finish simply amazed me.
Thanks again for a job well done.
Mark had great suggestions with pricing and got us to our goal price in both selling and buying. Mark was very timely with responses, which we appreciated.
We were very pleased and have recommended your services to others!
Mark is very easy to work with and helpful answering our questions. We have been happy both times he's sold our homes!

Thanks for all of your help even after closing. We love our home! Thanks so much!
Mark, thank you so much for all of your help! You were very responsive to all my questions and you are so easy to work with. Thanks again!
Mark and Jen are a great team. Both my husband and I knew we were in fully capable hands in entrusting them to sell our home. Their expertise, attentiveness, and professionalism shone through in both the big and small details. We highly recommend Mark and Jen and are grateful for their excellent work in selling our home.
All good - Thanks!
Awesome service as usual. Getting questions answered quickly and helping us find a perfect house is Mark's specialty. We used Mark in the past and wouldn't use anyone else!
Great job, no complaints!
Mark did an excellent job of marketing our home. I believe his photography (especially the aerial shots) sold our home. Furthermore, he was proactive in getting the shots we needed in order to see our property for all of the seasons. Thanks!
Mark and Jennifer are so easy to work with. Always so accommodating and considerate.
Your attitude and ability to accommodate our schedule and fulfilling every request made buying a pleasurable experience.
Mark helped to make our relocation process as easy as possible. The quick communication, no matter the time of the day, set you and your team apart from any other realtors we worked with in the past. Also, scheduling the follow-up service appointments after the inspection was a HUGE help! Thanks for a wonderful home-buying experience.
Good marketing, always available, and quick response to all questions. Will use you in the future for other properties.

A friend referred us to Mark. We were very satisfied. Mark was always patient and informative. We appreciated that you answered our questions in a timely manner. We will recommend you to others.
Best experience ever working with a Realtor! We appreciate all of the extra time and effort in helping us find a new home in a new city. We look forward to working with you again and have been telling our friends about you. Our friends, Michael and Sarah W. will be contacting you soon to help with their house hunt.

We were very impressed with Mark's service before, during, and after the purchase of our house! We had a great experience and have already recommended him to our friends.
The Monge website was so helpful! It was perfect for anyone relocating to the area for the first time. It explained neighborhoods and gave great descriptions. Mark was patient and very informative each step of the way.
Very thankful for the super informative website for the Dunlap area. Very helpful when moving from out of state. I was also appreciative of Mark's ability to take me through houses and help me find the right one in the two short days that I was in town. Overall a great experience.
Responsive, good guidance was provided, and patient.
You guys are the best! Thank you so much for the hard work and excellent communication.

Many, many thanks!
Mark and Jennifer are excellent. They had superb knowledge of the Peoria market, excellent follow through, and provided great recommendations on pricing/offers.

They arranged a closing in 1 1/2 weeks from the accepted offer date.
The Monge Team has been very helpful in our transition to Illinois. They were available at all times. They were patient with all our house searching and questions.

Mark was very helpful during a very difficult time to sell real estate. Low pressure, but always well thought-out strategies on home, best way to sell it.
Jennifer was so patient and kind in her efforts to find a home that suits my needs. I am so happy that my journey led me to you and ultimately to my new home. Your dedication and help were above and beyond my expectations.
Our family was really excited to be a homeowner. We appreciate your experience and advice you have given. Your expertise and help have been invaluable from the beginning to now. I wish we would meet you again and work together in the future.

Mark is an excellent agent!
Mark and Jennifer showed a wide range of homes in wide range of areas. They were quick to respond to suggestions. Attentive and responsive to our individual needs as a husband and wife can have different opinions. I bought my dream house within the constraights of my husband's budget. Thank you Mark Monge!
Mark was excellent - professional, knowledgeable, and attentive. His follow up to our questions and needs had been fast and helpful. Jennifer has been a big help too.
