Mark is known by his clients, friends and family as the “gentle giant”. “He greets you with a smile running from ear to ear and just gives you that feeling of trust from the very first moment you meet him.”
A devoted family man and Christian, Mark is the epitome of roll up your sleeves hard work, honesty, integrity, and loving care toward all whom he meets. As a Realtor with Lake Life Realty in Kingsland, Texas, he treats each and every client like family, with dignity and respect, and he enjoys the opportunity to fulfill their needs in buying or selling real estate.
Mark was born and raised in Texas and says he got his work ethic from his Father, who was a hard working farm boy that spent 30 plus years in the US Airforce. He follows in his Dad’s footsteps and is quick to remember how his father taught him to live by the “Golden Rule”
Mark was an athlete and a science geek growing up. As his berth to become a professional baseball player was cut short by injury, he proceeded to pursue his love of serving people by attending The University of Texas in San Antonio and studying the Biological/Pre -Med Sciences. As God took him on a different path after college, Mark spent a wonderful 10 year career with Luby’s Cafeterias, where he learned to operate an entire business, while acting as a Manager and eventually Assistant Training Director. Missing the opportunity to practice medicine and care for people , Mark changed career paths and entered a 25 year sales career in Healthcare, holding sales positions in Medical Equipment, Home Healthcare, Hospice, and Pharmaceutical Sales, where he took pride in providing lifesaving treatments, services and medications to patients in need.
With a love of the outdoors, especially fishing and hunting, Mark brought to reality the dream of owning his own waterfront property by buying a home on Lake LBJ in Kingsland in 2006. As he was winding down his Medical sales career after a battle with cancer, he decided to take advantage of his God given gift and talents by obtaining his Real Estate license and once again serving people. Mark is passionate and feels highly rewarded in helping people during their journey of buying a waterfront home, ranch, business, or property at the time in life where they are in most need. Mark doesn’t consider clients as just business acquaintances; they become his lifelong friends and a part of his Lake Life Realty family. As he puts it, “it is an honor and a pleasure to serve people and have the luxury of making friends out of them too! It doesn’t get any better than that!”
Mark is a member of the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing.
