In today’s business world finding a profession that you can truly enjoy and excel in at the same time can be difficult. For Mark, real estate is challenging, fun, and inspiring. “Each day in real estate can be the beginning of something new and exciting,” he says. Real Estate has filled four core principles for Mark. First, it is something he can be passionate about. Second, he can excel in. Third, it is economically feasible, and fourth, he makes it fun.

Through college, the USMC, and a 25 year career in manufacturing. Mark learned the value of hard work and perseverance. Selling his manufacturing company in 1997, and after a two year contract as a consultant, Mark began thinking about real estate. It was almost three years later before he decided this is what he wanted to do. Today, Mark is the Broker and Owner of the largest ERA Real Estate Franchise in Mississippi. His company has closed over half a billion dollars of real estate since 2002, and he has served in various positions at the state and local level for the Mississippi and Jackson Association of Realtors®.  It hasn’t come easy, but sticking to his core beliefs and building a team of like-minded individuals is proof of Mark’s success.

Central to Mark’s success, however, is his dedication to his clients and agents. He says’ “Being the best means going the extra mile for those you serve. As a broker, Mark is confronted with all kinds of situations. He says, “If you want longevity in any career you must keep the interest of your clients and team mates first, and serve with the utmost integrity.    

On Mark’s first multi-million dollar transaction he represented both the buyer and the seller who lived in different parts of the country. Mark enjoys working on this type of high profile and complex transaction.  “No matter the price range or the client, helping people to reach their goals and fulfill a dream is a tremendous pleasure.” 

Mark is a native Jacksonian. “I remember as a boy going to my dad’s ice plant on Terry Road from our home in Belhaven.  It took all of about 15 or 20 minutes and that was going through the middle of town. There were no interstates. How times have changed.”  Besides growing up in Jackson, Mark and his wife Kathy have lived in Rankin and Madison Counties.  He is an avid outdoorsman and enjoys photography and watersports. He says, “My greatest success has been my marriage to Kathy and our three children and five granddaughters.”
