Compass Real Estate is the number one real estate company of premier homes in the nation, and Mark is ranked in the top 1% of sales professionals within this Company. Without a doubt, Compass is proud of its association with Mark.
Mark brings to Compass a wealth of skill, experience and professionalism. He received his Bachelor's degree in Business Administration and Marketing with a minor in Communications. His outstanding achievements began from the moment he entered his real estate career in 1986. In his first year of sales, he achieved his company's highest honors in receiving the Outstanding Sales Achievement award. After four years of working for the largest real estate investment firm in the western United States, Mark and a colleague decided to start their own real estate investment firm. After four more years of success, Mark's business partner had finally succumbed to a yearlong battle with cancer. The loss of his friend and business partner leads Mark to join forces with Cornish and Carey Residential, which at the time was the leader in residential real estate. After five more successful years, Mark joined the Alain Pinel Realtors in 1998 who was the Bay Area leader in Luxury Real Estate. And in 2019, Alain Pinel Realtors and Compass, Inc. join forces to offer consumers the latest in technology and services that are matched by no other.
A strong commitment to his profession and his community are in part the framework for his success. Mark is currently a member of the Silicon Valley Association of Realtors (SILVAR), the California Association of Realtors® (CAR), and the National Association of Realtors® (NAR). He is also an integral part of his community in Scotts Valley, having served for years as a board member for his community and as a coach to the local youth sports league. However, at the very heart of his successful career is his personal commitment to every client, many of whom have become lifelong friends.
Mark's communication skills allow him to represent and guide clients through the complexities of today's real estate transactions. "The agent does make the difference! " is Mark s belief, and he prides himself in his ability to bring a satisfactory conclusion to a variety of transactions whether his client is selling or purchasing a home. He has earned a reputation for honesty and integrity from his peers and loyal appreciation from a long list of clients including: developers, teachers, engineers, firefighters, police officers, artists, accountants, attorneys, professional athletes, high tech executives, retirees, and even other real estate brokers!
