About Mark

Retired attorney in Massachusetts & Ohio, adjunct journalism professor, TV news producer & investigative reporter for a South Florida television affiliate.


There are many things we can say about the high level of service we provide to our home seller and buyer clients, but little would lend as much credibility as testimonials from those clients.

“We liked Mark & Elly so much that we not only used them to find our house, but we went right  back to them when we had to sell it unexpectedly. They did a first-class job of helping us.  They were terrific!”

Governor & Mrs. Richard D. Celeste/, Cleveland Heights

"Mark & Elly became part of our daily lives and did an amazing job for us."
Rob & Diane Shahler, Hunting Valley
"I never felt pressured. In fact they helped me every step of the way! They knew I needed time to separate from my home & they looked out for my best interests. I like their sense of humor which helped during stressful times."

"Mark and Elly are a wonderful team and offer so very much through their experience.  They keep up with today’s market and provide very sound and rational advice.  It may sound cliché, but they go that “extra mile” in all aspects of what they do --- from listing until closing.  I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate.
Eric Novak & Vicky/Richmond Heights
"I highly recommend Mark and Elly Ostrovsky as realtors. I have used both as buying and selling agents and have known them for over nine years. I would never work with any other agents in the Cleveland market because I trust these guys to work in my best interest. Elly is the marketing expert and Mark keeps track of all the details. Talk about service!!!"
Frances Scarlett, Cleveland Heights


"I particularly appreciated Mark and Elly's insider’s knowledge about the legal aspects of real estate, as well as the confidence that they were truly representing my interests navigating a complicated patchwork of rules and regulations.  I feel that I got the just the right house, at the right price, and that they both understood my needs and made the process enjoyable and relatively stress-free. They are the best realtors in Cleveland!"  
Trina Prufer, Cleveland  

"From the moment I met Mark and Elly as a Shaker Heights buyer, I knew I had a highly seasoned real estate team on my side. They listened to me. When it came time for me to sell my house, in a downturned market, Mark and Elly were right there by my side, advising me and supporting me. They sold my house faster than the market was indicating and they never stopped communicating with me. They didn't tell me what I wanted to hear but, instead, told me what I needed to hear! I am very grateful to them both."

Angela Spall/Shaker Heights

"At every stage of the selling process, Mark and Elly Ostrovsky demonstrated professionalism, excellent judgment, and creativity -- not to mention a seasoned understanding of the evolving real estate market. They were also a delight to work with. We will definitely recommend them to friends and associates. Thanks!"
Dr. Daniel and Diana Medalie/Shaker Heights

"Mark and Elly Ostrovsky were confident strategists, taking on a challenging housing market for the timely sale of our house.  They produced fine photos for our listing on the MLS and provided us with frequent updates and opportunities for discussion. We much appreciated their proactive communications and personal friendliness and attention."

John & Cynthia Beeker/Cleveland Heights

"Working with Mark and Elly was more than pleasurable. We worked with three other agents in the last year, with poor results. While other agents were anxious to make a sale, but not great on follow-up, Mark and Elly were cautionary and careful, yet were able to accomplish what we really wanted; and we appreciated getting both of their opinions and input."most competent, professional, kind & genuine Realtors we’ve ever had.”

Sura & Hari Sevastopoulis/Pepper Pike


"We highly recommend Mark and Elly Ostrosky to you.for all the  help you will need to sell your house. Mark and Elly are delightful to work with and smart about all the ins and outs of real estate. They patienlty guided us and worked with us many times and were so available and willing to help at all hours and through many difficulties we faced in trying to sell our house in a tough market. Even though they had many properties and clients to take care of. they made us  feel like we were the only clients they had! They  went above and beyond  and we feel thankful that they were our realtors. We could not have asked for anyone better....and.thanks to their wise counsel we avoided several potential mistakes and finally sold our home!"

Pastor Cal & Deborah Searles, Cleveland Heights

"What a pleasure it has been working with Mark and Elly! They have guided us through the real estate maze with calm professionalism to help us sell our home in Beachwood. Sharing their expertise of the market, we were able to use some of their knowledge in the purchase of our new home in New Jersey. We think everyone should have mark and Elly as their agents."

Alan & Ruth Gaffin/Beachwood


"Mark and Elly are truly a pleasure to work with! We are first time home-buyers, and had very little education on the process when we started looking for a house. They set us at ease, and worked diligently to help find us a home that we would love.  They lent a critical eye to our investigations and would point out a flaw or feature that we had not ourselves noticed, which would impact on our priorities. We really appreciated their expertise! They guided us through the otherwise bewildering process of buying a home and were able to give us an insiders advantage. We are sincerely grateful to these two for helping us to find and buy such a perfect home!

Cassandra Whittington

Shaker Heights


"We bought our first home through Mark and Elly and we couldn't have been luckier. They were gracious and patient and happy to work with us to find the perfect house. They then took the time to explain to us everything that was to come. They really went above and beyond. I would recommend them to anyone buying a house, not just first time buyers. They helped make our dreams come true."

Amy Shuman

Shaker Heights


"Elly and Mark were the ultimate professionals in helping me deal with an all too common problem in today's housing market: my home had lost value and was worth considerably less than what was owed. Elly and Mark assisted me with a short-sale of my home, finding a buyer in three weeks and negotiating expertly with my lender. I highly recommend them to others in this situation, as they understand and stay current on this tough housing market. Elly and Mark are also very easy to work with and they showed great care and follow through at all times.

K. Jones/Shaker Heights


Choosing Mark as our short sale agent is the most correct thing I have done in the long journey of selling the house in Beachwood. I believe our case to sell the house in short time was extremely difficult since we are in Australia. It was very inconvenient to communicate considering the distance and the time zone difference overseas. We needed a very passionate agent with lots of experience. I can say Mark was the perfect one to satisfy these. Mark was always there when we needed him. He used his experience and rich professional knowledge to help us in each step. We had bee selling the house for long time. Mark gave us hopes when we found him. He did what he needed to do in an incredible quick way. He encouraged us and comforted us, not just like an agent, also like a friend. Without him, we might have given up. He reminded us lots of things we did not know. He was very patient and thoughtful when we had requirements. I have not seen him once. But he is the person I want to say hello to if I go back to Cleveland one day. We really appreciate what he has done for our family. Definitely, I would recommend him to everyone! Finally, I learn lots of from him, how people should work as a professional, how to take care of customs, and never giving up hopes… Thank you, Mark.
