About Mark
Mark Blackwell came to real estate from the art world. While transforming lofts and storefronts into short-term art galleries, he realized he loved buildings as much as paintings and embarked on a career in real estate. He maintains deep connections with the art business and a passion for creative spaces. With his partner, industry veteran Paddington Matz, he handles many artist lofts, especially in Tribeca. While he focuses downtown, Mark represents buyers, sellers, renters, and landlords all over Manhattan and in brownstone Brooklyn.

Firmly committed to the philosophy quality not quantity, Mark takes on a project only when he can give it the full measure of his attention. He is known for his integrity and equanimity in difficult situations.

Mark savors the history of New York and its buildings every day. He always thinks of Andy Warhol’s Factory when passing the Decker Building in Union Square, and twice enjoyed listing a townhouse apartment in the Village that was once home to silent film star John Barrymore.

A Virginian by birth, Mark holds a BA in Art History from the University of Virginia and an MA in Art Business from the Sotheby's Institute of Art/University of Manchester.
