I believe there are no magic words that result in a successful transaction. But rather living your life anchored in honesty, integrity and transparency leads to an abundant life. All of my previous customers are my best advocates and friends. Let’s talk.
With me you get my 25 years of experience in B2B sales throughout Connecticut. I built a successful sales career based on exceptional customer service. I take a relationship focused sales approach to everything I do to service my clients. I am focused on helping my clients buy and selling homes, condos, land and new construction throughout the shoreline including Branford, North Branford, Guilford, Madison, North Haven and Wallingford to name a few.
I grew up on the waterfront in the Indian Neck section of Branford. I went through the Branford school system, was a volunteer fireman, worked at the Branford counseling center and was active in church groups. I later married and moved to North Branford where I live today in the home my wife grew up in with my wife (Lynn) and rescue dog Lucky.
My many interests include vegetable gardening, baseball, following UConn basketball and I am former church senior warden.
I am a proud member of the New Haven Middlesex Association of REALTORS, Inc.

Everyone we have met and worked with has been excellent from start to finish.Kathryn Scaringe
Mark McElrath was an excellent agent. He listened to our wants and needs regarding our new home, put together a comprehensive list of options for us and guided us through out the process. He was invaluable in our home search and purchase journey. We are very grateful!Elena Senseman
Mark was just the realtor we had been looking for. He was professional, and expertly helped us find just the right house for us . We never felt pressured. He went out of his way to make our move to CT from NH as flawless as possible.Susan Johnson Leslie Orsini
Started working with this Agency a year ago and they have been a pleasure to work with. Most recently worked with Mark, who was great…very competetent, detail oriented, prompt and diligent. Hope to work with all of them again in the near future.K Scaringe, R Salnau J Ranno
Mark was a pleasure to work with! He has a great personality, "down to earth," and was readily available whenever I sent a property I wanted to look at. He was always timely. While he is not an inspector, he has a good eye for things to look for while walking through a property and was helpful with pointing things out without being pushy or making me feel too swayed about making a decision on a house. As a first time home buyer, he made me feel comfortable with the process of going through houses and was knowledgeable with questions I had throughout the process. I would definitely work with him again!Samantha K.
I found Mark by accident but very fortunate I did and wouldn’t have wanted to work w anyone else . This was my first time buying a home. In an insanely competitive market he was able to find me a home in a little less than a week of working together. I didn’t know what to expect buying for the first time but he was there through the entire process , always available by phone when I needed him or had questions . Even went as far to make himself available to meet w the municipality to tie up loose ends before my closing . His referral for mortgage lender was fantastic as well. When I am in the market again someday I will absolutely be working with him. I can’t thank him enough and I highly recommend working with him to anyone who is in the market . Very personal experience from start to finish and for a large purchase like this you need a personal relationship. Well done Mark , thanks again for everything .Alex
The agent that assisted me in my search for finding a new place to live was very helpful . Once we found a new home he sold my house within a short time & assisted me every step of the way , I would highly recommend Mark McElrath to anyone who wants help in selling &or purchasing a home.Vincent Barone
I never thought looking for houses and selling my much loved house where I had lived for 34 years would turn out to be such a good time! Mark and I clicked immediately! I have had other interactions with other agents and never enjoyed the experience and stopped looking, I actually missed him and the icing on the cake was after I moved into my new smaller but cozy house, Mark showed up bringing a beautiful violet plant. I can't ever imagine moving again, but if I did, I would follow Mark wherever he was working!Jill Marcus
Mark was very professional and helpful. He showed us many houses, and his insight on potential structural and physical issues was excellent. Mark was a pleasure to work with!Vince S
We will highly recommend Michelle and Mark McElrath to anyone we know looking to buy or sell. We consider ourselves extremely lucky to have Michelle and Mark on our "team"."Edward & Lori Rogers
Hi Mark, I wanted to send you a testimonial for your profile, but I couldn't find any submission form--hopefully you can submit it for me in the right place. Feel free to use my name as a reference. It is important for you to know that though our house search ended rather precipitously earlier this week, Ilya and I appreciated all of your help immensely. We didn't find anything that we liked enough to buy at this time. But your assistance--proffered every step of the way and with such enthusiasm and sincerity--was like a balm during an extremely stressful time. You went the extra mile in everything: scheduling multiple showings at the drop of a hat; taking the time to walk us through each property; offering your frank and unbiased opinions; even driving us to appointments after I locked my keys in the car! You were definitely the best part of our recent home search. Thanks again for everything, and best of luck in the future! Rebecca GuernseyRebecca Guernsey
