“I cannot begin to explain how wonderful Eastern Eight has been with helping me purchase my first home. As a first time home buyer, I knew very little; however, eastern Eight really took the time to explain everything to me every step of the way. Mark Fleury was amazing to work with! He went above and beyond throughout the whole process, and responded to every one of many many emails right away. I would 100% recommend Eastern Eight to anyone and everyone.”
