Mark Cummings the Broker/Owner of Cornerstone Real Estate of South West Florida, has worked in Real Estate since 1995 and during that time has experienced a full range of cyclical peaks and troughs. His experience is wide ranging from marketing new construction to evaluating sites for development, to promoting individual residences for sale.  As an industry professional, Mark has an intimate understanding of the Venice, Nokomis, Osprey & Sarasota area and is acutely aware of it’s potential and value. You can benefit from Mark’s wealth of negotiating experience to obtain the best possible value.

Discovering the Venice area in 2003, Mark knew that this area was a perfect fit.  Mark stated “when you looked at the low crime rate, great schools, fantastic weather & ability to golf year round…It was a no brainer to pick the children up out of the snow and make the 1,050 mile move”.  In 2004 Mark and Nikki purchased a home in Venice and love the area even more today!  Mark enjoys spending time with his 2 boys Nathan & Evan, and his beautiful wife Nikki. Golfing and swimming year round are two of the things Mark likes best about Venice Florida.  The boys enjoy going to the many parks and hanging out pool side on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

Bought a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $325K in North Venice, FL.

Mark is a very kind and calm person to deal with during the stress of buying a home. He has no limits or restraints! Trust me we have pushed him on many days and he continued to be kind, appropriate, supportive and never ever pushing us to move on. He listens to what we want and avoids the homes he knows have no interest. He always stays in the financial bounds that we chose.
The support he continues to give us after the closing is amazing. He never fails to say ok or how can I help no matter what the circumstances.
If Mark Cummings is your real estate professional, you will never have to worry! Smooth closing, all set up and ready for your signature. Never could imagine how nice this could be since we have done this many times in our life! You are the best Mark!

Sold a Single Family home in Venice, FL.
I’ve dealt with numerous realtors over the years and Mark is far and away the best. As we live 1000 miles away, he went well above and beyond to help us out, as we were trying to sell a house in an area that we are not terribly familiar with. In addition, his numerous contacts got us out of a bind in cleaning out the house, and to deal with an electrical problem. His knowledge of the area helped get us a price well above what we expected. Can’t thank him enough!

Sold a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $400K in Venice, FL.
We recently were blessed to have worked with Mark Cummings to list and successfully sell our deceased relatives home. Mark is such a professional and caring person. He went above and beyond making the process so easy for us especially since we were from out of state. Every call to him was returned promptly with an apology for not being available when we called him. He also helped stage our home beautifully and resolved all issues for us. He deserves 5 stars plus!
