Team Testimonies

"Truthful, knowledgeable and not afraid to inject his opinion about your decisions. Helpful with knowing and understanding the markets and also helping with finance and contractors to assist your business transaction."
Jack Johnston testimonial for Mark Ludden

Hi Mark,

Just a note to let you know that we appreciated all the help you gave us in finding our place in Cape Coral.  You listened to the main things we wanted in a purchase and did not waste our time with homes that we just would not consider.  

Because we live in Michigan it was important that when we were in the area we got to see houses that had the criteria we had indicated.   Mark made sure this was the case and made himself available to meet our schedule which was awesome.  

Once we found the right home Mark was there every step to make sure things went smoothly.  An added bonus was being able to tap Mark for contractors, title companies, and even insurance providers he knows are pro's that could help us.  

Great knowledge of the area and we would not hesitate to call him in the future or direct others to Mark and Pinnacle.

 Thanks so much,

 Chris and Shari S.

proud new owners of a second home in the Cape Harbour area.


My wife and I have bought and sold several homes and had other dealings with realtors, but we have NEVER had such a great experience as we had with Mark Ludden. He is head and shoulders above all other realtors we've had experience with. Not only would I recommend Mark to everyone I know, but I'd go out of my way to do so. He is a great guy, very easy to work with and more responsive than any realtor we've known.

Hello Robert,  

I just wanted to take a moment and let you know how thankful I am to have worked with a realtor who made the sales process simple & easy.  In addition,  you kept the lines of communication open and clear  throughout the entire process of our recent transaction.  I can't wait to do business with you and your staff again! 

 Much thanks,

Mark recently helped me purchase an investment home. He was extremely patient and showed me over 10 houses in order to make the best purchase. He was always available even after regular hours and he is very knowledgeable of the market. In addition Mark provided me with expert and honest advice. Even when I was convinced about a property, if he believed we could find something better he would discourage me from putting in an offer and making a bad investment. In the end, we were able to get a great home for a great price because of his dedication, negotiation skills and patience. I highly recommend Mark whether you are buying your first home or an investment property anywhere in Lee and Collier County and anywhere from $50,000 to $500,000.

Mark was a tremendous asset to our search for our new home. He was the contact agent of one of the homes we were interested in online. We were so pleased with his knowledge of real estate, professionalism and "nonsalesman" like demeanor we continued to work together. Mark was always available by phone, email or text most any part of the day. He was extremely patient with our hectic schedule and my last minute requests. He went above and beyond to meet our needs and was extremely efficient through each process. I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend Mark to any of my co-workers or friends for real estate assistance. You can not go wrong !

I recently decided to move from the east coast of Florida to Cape Coral.  I was very fortunate to be able to work with Robert Lee of Pinnacle Property Group.  Robert combined professionalism with courtesy and confidence to provide what can only be described as outstanding customer service. 
I am thrilled with my new home and can't thank Robert enough for all his help.

We first met Mark through our daughter's friend. We were interested in purchasing a future retirement place in Florida. We investigated many condo communities in SW Florida. Mark was always helpful in checking statistics and the status of the Homeowner's Association. He would provide information in regards to the history, availability, and covenants of each community. If he didn't know an answer, he would get one for us. He helped each step of the way making recommendations and extra trips to verify the condition of units. His honesty was appreciated very much. He guided us through the process of out-of state real estate purchasing and helped us with the closing. I believe we had a record "short sale" and I often felt terrible that he did so much leg work without receiving his commission. After 18 months, we finally closed. He keeps in contact with us from time to time and set us up with a great property manager. We have a great tenant who is caring for our property until we retire. I would highly recommend Mark. His effort and perseverance helped us accomplish our retirement dreams.

I recently purchased in Cape Coral and was pleased with the understanding, attentiveness, and enthusiasm from Robert and Mark.  Because I was buying from 1200 miles away, Robert loaded properties into my client portal that fit my criteria on a daily basis, which was perfect.  It only took two trips to find my new home and I will be sure to recommend Pinnacle to anyone that is in the market.

Mark & Rae B.

I'm retired USN/math teacher who was looking for a small retirement home on the water in the Cape. I worked with Roberto and his crew for nearly four months. During that time we looked at many properties that were all viable possibilities. He and his staff are extremely knowledgeable, courteous and on top of current changes in the market. Together we found the ideal place for me. Thanks to the entire crew at Pinnacle.

I just wanted to take a few minutes to thank Mark Ludden for not only helping me find and purchase a home but also for the extremely fast transaction on selling my condo (3 weeks on market!) You made everything so easy and smooth from start to finish.
From day one, you made it your goal to help me find what I was looking for, constantly e-mailing properties that you felt matched what I was looking for, always going out of your way to make sure I had all the information, setting up appointments on short notice and just providing the friendly service that is often hard to find these days.
You were extremely patient, always smiling and willing to help in any way possible. No matter what the obstacle was you found a way around it!! You were not pushy to get the sale and always looked out for my best interest.
Anytime I or anyone I talk to is in need of buying or selling a house, I will most defiantly be sending them to you. I truly appreciate everything you did and for going way out of your way to get me in my new home!

First of all of all,  as you well know, I was and am extremely dissatisfied.  That being said...........
I am retired mortgage banker, hold a valid Florida Real Estate License (but due to other commitments I do not practice that profession) re-located to Florida in 1999 and in the  very competitive real estate market of 2011 had  need of a professional real estate agent. 
I contracted with Mark Ludden in order to find the ideal home in the Fort Myers market.  He responded to all my needs in a timely manner.  As a result of my experience regarding the purchase and closing for my new home I would not hesitate to recommend Mr Ludden for any or all of your real estate needs.  He knows how to get the job done.  And he does so in a smooth orderly manner.
It seems as if is philosophy is to promise less but to deliver more. 
In today's society it is rare to find someone that really cares.  My philosophy in life is "People don't  care how much you know until you know how much they care".  Not only is Mark a very capable, knowledgeable and results orientated professional, he puts your needs above his.

Hi Mark: I think you did a fabulous job on our house on Viscaya, this is a busy street and you sold this in around the 45 day mark. We always knew that You had to get people in to see the finished product. When we were the buyers you were always very responsive taking us to the stinking house and others and always giving us the best advise.

We have a good feeling recommending you our friends and family you are very conscientious and most important as Canadians you protected us as best that you can, the docs that we signed on closing were foreign to us and you always had our best interests at heart. We appreciate the care.

"We loved working with the realtors at Pinnancle Property Group! Needless to say purchasing a home is a very large undertaking and can be frustrating at times. My fiance and I are very meticulous and had many requirements for the purchase of our new home. We spent months looking and viewed well over 100 properties in person! At no point in time did Roberto or Brian lose patience with us as we continued our search. We offered on 3 different homes to no avail due to the difficulties associated with foreclosures and short sales. We finally found the perfect home for us and closed on the property last Monday and are so excited about starting our new life together. Pinnacle Property Group is a class act and an exploding and excting new Real Estate Company that offers individuallized service! I would recommend them to all of my friends and family! Happy Hunting!

My wife and I “escaped” a couple of other realtors in the Fort Meyers area before finding Roberto Lee of Pinnacle Property Group and WOW are we forever grateful for the privilege of having him work for us! I don’t think there is anyone any better at producing a video with a running commentary of a prospective home. After discussing our desires for our new dream home, Robert produced videos that made us “see” things better than we would have noticed if we had actually been there! He pointed out the pros & cons about each area of the home, told us about the immediate neighborhood, AND about the adjacent areas (with possible noises we might encounter!). Our experiences with Robert and Pinnacle Property Group were nothing short of amazing. They replied to emails promptly, kept us updated on everything, and made the home buying process simple. They are true professionals. THANKS SO MUCH FOR ALL YOU DID FOR US!

"Pinnacle Property Group has allowed me to buy and sell US property from Australia! This property group is technologically superior to all the other real estate institutions and made my interview process simple. Essential to my investing strategy are the detailed video clips of properties that I am interested in. The running commentary provided by my realtor Roberto Lee allows me to process important property information to make informed decisions. Roberto understands my needs as an international investor and goes the extra mile to help me close profitable deals.

Thanks for all your help and support over the last 18 months mate!"

"Buying a home can be a trying experience, particularly so when attempting to do so from thirteen hundred miles away. Jackie was always professional, friendly, honest, a good communicator, helpful and looked out for our best interest. We were very fortunate to have Jackie on our side to locate the perfect home."

Kirk and Amy H

"Brian Ludden recently helped my wife and I with our second home purchase in the Fort Myers area. This was a 5 month long search and Brian was our 3rd realtor. The wait was well worth it. Brian did a wonderful job and I would highly recommend him. He was very knowledgeable regarding the housing market in the Fort Myers area and went out of his way to make our experience both smooth and painless. I would not have wanted to go through this experience with anyone other than Brian."



"Jackie Fenske has been a great help in my search for a new home. With the number of properties available in today's market, house hunting can be a daunting task, but Jackie really did a great job of making it seem easy. A true professional, Jackie is very knowledgeable, and I would certainly recommend her for your real estate needs."

John L.


"I was privileged to have Jackie Fenske represent me in the purchase of a house in Cape Coral. I found her to be very professional and knowledgeable. I felt confident enough to trust her to close on the property and this saved me a trip not to mention an airline ticket. I would definitely use her in any future real estate transactions!"

"jackie, Wayne and I were extremely pleased with all you did to help find the perfect Florida home for us. We had no experience with short sales or foreclosures or bank owned properties and we really relied on you to guide us through the process. You were patient, persistent and also positive that we would be successful and we were! Your knowledge and professionalism were truly outstanding and made the whole experience a positive one. We have been in our new house since the middle of March and we love it. I would highly recommend you and your agency to anyone looking for a home in this area. You're the best and we were fortunate to have found you."

Roberto Lee of Pinnacle Property Group has given me the confidence to invest in US Property over the Internet. He provides a service over and above what I would expect from a Property Realtor, such as detailed video tours, comparable sales, referrals and detail to assist me to make informed decisions about property purchasing in my chosen location of Fort Myers, Florida. Roberto is IT savvy – an essential quality in a Realtor for an investor from Australia. I appreciate the personalised Property Portal he set up for me which sorts and displays only the type of property I am interested in, including price range and location.

"When we decided to buy a property in Florida, there were many hesitant moments as we were from Canada, but finding Pinnacle Propert Group and especially Robert Lee was the best experience we have ever had, in real estate ventures.

Patience - Honesty and a great understanding of locations & Florida laws, proved to be the answer we were looking for, Robert found us the house - helped us through the process and I would recommend him & his Company to any prospective buyer or seller!"

Allan and Isabel


"I've been investing in real estate for over 10 years. I trust Pinnacle Property Group for their hands-on client service and experience in finding the best deals. If you select the right property, you make money when you buy. Brian and Rob have helped me secure strong equity positions and positive cash flow opportunities from day one on numerous occasions. I have a team that is responsive and negotiates vigorously on my behalf. Their expertise in multifamily residential and commercial transactions have earned my business. I highly recommend them to any real estate investor."



Mark Ludden is probably one of the most proficient real estate agents I have ever been involved with.He was very thorough and always kept me updated and informed as progress was being made in the transaction.Healso provided me with references to property management officers andtax and insurance contacts that I required as being a Canadiancitizen.

I have a number of rental properties here in Canada and I am veryimpressed with Mark Ludden,s work and would recommend him and Pinnacle Property Group to anyone who asks me about my condo purchase in Fort
Myers and in fact, I have.

Mark is very familiar with Cape Coral. Mark kept in close contact with listing agent, lender and title company throughout the transaction. I highly recommend Mark to anyone involved in a real estate transaction.
