Raised in a real estate household, Mark quickly learned that investing in property is one of the best methods of creating financial stability. When he was ready to follow in the family footsteps, he did so with a strongly established background in sales and marketing. His prior career in the contemporary fashion industry – with showrooms in both NYC and Los Angeles – helped him develop the sharp eye for design which he now applies when assessing individual homes, providing creative insight to make the space more aesthetically pleasing.
A confident and smart negotiator, Mark is driven by his love of meeting people. This, and his 16 plus years in the industry both as an investor and a broker, helps him create long lasting client relationships in the process of dispensing valuable industry knowledge. This “well mannered, all-American west coast guy” welcomes a challenge, and is equally at home helping buyers find their new digs as he is selling luxury homes and multi-family income properties.
Mark is the only Scout licensed in both California and Oregon, having relocated to Portland after his wife was offered a senior position at Adidas. He has already fallen hard for this beautiful city, enjoying the creative and independent artisan vibe, and the abundance of outdoor recreation at his doorstep. Being a So Cal expat, Mark’s affinity for surfing means his home is filled with old school surf art from around the world. When not studying real estate news and developments, he’s out on bike adventures or whipping up something delicious in the kitchen to serve with a nice bottle of Oregon Pinot Noir.
