If you’re looking to move up or down or purchasing your first home, Mark will work with you in order to meet your goals.
One of the things that separates Mark is that he’s a REALTOR®. What is a REALTOR® and why are they different than an average salesperson licensed throughout California? REALTORS® subscribe to a strict Code of Ethics and are expected to maintain a higher level of knowledge of the process of buying and selling real estate.
Real estate transactions involve one of the biggest financial investments most people experience in their lifetime. Transactions today usually exceed $100,000. If you had a $100,000 income tax problem, would you attempt to deal with it without the help of a CPA? If you had a $100,000 legal question, would you deal with it without the help of an attorney? Considering the small upside cost and the large downside risk, it would be foolish to consider a deal in real estate without the professional assistance of a REALTOR®.
I’ve known Mark for over a decade and I have always enjoyed working with him. He has helped in so many ways I don’t even know where or how to start in writing down a list to share. He’s a go-getter. His patience and composure in stressful situations is something to be experienced and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to my closest friends and family.
Mark’s experience shows and no-matter if you’re looking for your first home, moving up, down, sideways, looking for an investment property or multi-family, a commercial property or starting your homestead farm and land/ag Mark will be able to help.

Specializing In …
What is a Residential Home? Have you heard of the acronym “SFR”? Real estate is full of terms and acronyms. A Single Family Residence is a stand-alone house (also called a single-detached dwelling, detached residence or detached house) is a free-standing residential building. Sometimes referred to as a single–family home, as opposed to a multi-family residential dwelling. Mark Specializes in Single Family Homes throughout the Central Valley. Use the links to the left or some of the favorite communities below to search your favorite areas or if you’re so inclined you can start your search live on the website.
Multi-Family Residential (also known as Multidwelling Unit or MDU) is a classification of housing where multiple separate housing units for residential inhabitants are contained within one building or several buildings within one complex. A common form is an apartment building. Sometimes units in a multifamily residential building are condominiums, where typically the units are owned individually rather than leased from a single apartment building owner. A lot of homes in downtown Fresno are Multi-Family. You’ll see a large house with multiple front-doors and those homes are split up inside into multiple units. Usually a number designates how many units make up the structure. Multi-Units can be great investment properties. Call me and I can share my experiences and give you stories of people who I’ve helped start their long term multi-family investments.
Farms & Land
A farm is an area of land that is devoted primarily to agricultural processes with the primary …. farms can become quite large. As with estates in England, there is no defined size or method of operation at which a large farm becomes a station. The Central Valley is famous for it’s Raisins, Grapes, Almonds, Strawberries, Oranges, Lemons, Pistachios, Various Vegetables and More…. California really is the food basket of the World. If you’re interested in living on a farm for personal use, or using that farm and/or land as means of income we can talk about the advantages and challenges that come with Farm and Ag. Lots are also available throughout the County and depending on zoning, can do almost anything with these plots of land.
The term Commercial Property (also called commercial real estate, investment or income property) refers to buildings or land intended to generate a profit, either from capital gain or rental income. There are a ton of investment property purchase opportunities throughout the Central Valley and surrounding booming communities. Creating a business, starting, or adding to your investment? Let me know and I’ll be more than happy to share my success.

Get Updated on the Market
The real estate market is generally cyclical, meaning there are ups and downs over the spread of a 10 year term. Homes are like anything else… one of the major pricing factors is all about supply and demand. The fewer homes available for sale on the market, the sales prices (estimated value) will tick up a bit higher. If there’s too much inventory, a flood of homes for sale in any given area, the lower the sales price (estimated value) will go down. Want to find out what kind of market we’re in?
