About Mark

Being a realtor is an awesome responsibility. It’s likely that the real estate purchase or sale that you are considering will represent the largest financial transaction of your lifetime. You can count on me to be your trusted advisor throughout this often complex process by communicating with you early, often and every step of the way.

BusinessmanCareer Q & A

If you had to provide only one piece of advice to a buyer, what would it be?*

Be prepared and be patient. Get all your ducks in a row, do your research, both online and in real life. And then listen to your gut when viewing homes, if it's meant to be you should be feeling it.

What sets you apart from other real estate agents? Why should a potential customer work with you?*

From the start, I will create a winning game plan by carefully listening to your needs, identifying potential problems and offering solutions. I will do everything in my power to not only make your experience stress-free, but to make it fun.

If you had to provide only one piece of advice to a seller, what would it be?*

Be thankful for the memories your home has given you, but know when it's time to let go. Your home will now provide you with the resources to start another adventure in a new home. Let go and enjoy the ride.

What would you want to do for a living if you were not a real estate agent?

Before I became a realtor, I enjoyed a successful 20-year marketing career; most of that time leading the marketing team at Black & Decker’s Hardware & Home Improvement Group. Managing multi-million dollar budgets and creating robust sales & marketing programs geared towards our HGTV-inspired customers was part and parcel of my work there. I love being a realtor, but if I was to do something different, it would likely be in the marketing field.

What is your favorite vacation spot?

I have travelled a fair bit in my life, but the one constant seems to be a Spring beach vacation, usually to Mexico. In recent (pre-covid) years, the preferred destination has been a wee village by the name of San Pancho on the pacific coast. Home to about 3,000 people it's a very laid back surfing town with cobblestone streets and great hospitality. I'll be going again this coming spring and can't wait!

What is your favorite place to go to with your family or friends?

My sister used to own a cozy cabin on tiny Keats Island (near Gibsons) and this was for all intents and purposes, the Family Cabin. We shared so many fantastic memories there, it was kind of magical. Sometimes it was just a few of us there enjoying the peace & quiet, other times it was a large & somewhat raucous gathering. Even though it was recently sold, I still think of it often.

Mark was my real estate agent for the recent purchase of my house in Victoria. I am one of those buyers who-- to my great surprise!! ---are not universally liked in Victoria. I was an out of province purchaser. So the search took place over a couple of years on my periodic trips to Victoria. Mark always made himself available when I was in town and patiently took me through numerous properties without making me feel pressure to make a decision. When I eventually found a home, he guided me throu...show more

Mark is very knowledgeable! He is a great listener and understood my needs right away. Communication throughout the process was impeccable. He uses all available to him and did in depth research on all the properties I was seriously interested in.

We found Mark very professional and extremely responsive! If we were working with another agent I wouldn't be surprised if we were still looking. We were glad we hired Mark and really grateful for all of his hard work.

First time home buyer! Mark showed me probably 30 or more properties. He was always available to answer any of my questions. He made process fun, and was knowledgeable and supportive. I am very pleased with the condo I purchased!
