Here is the short version, I was born and raised on the south side of Chicago by parents with an immigrant work ethic. At age 10, on my days off school, I started following my father around at work. I learned the value of a dollar and hard work by pounding stakes, shoveling concrete and assisting my father with managing his rental properties. Throughout my education at the University of Chicago and professional experience as a psychotherapist in behavioral health care, I learned about the importance of empathy and starting where your Client is when trying to help them. These skills have transferred nicely into a career in real estate as a developer and as a Real Estate Consultant.
Having purchased, remodeled and sold 2 primary residences, purchased 2 multi-unit investment properties as-well-as various lots that I have developed and sold. I have a solid understanding of the time commitment, focus, hard work and market analysis that is required to find you the perfect property, at the right price and with the least amount of stress. In the fast-paced field of real estate, I am continuously thinking out of the box to maintain an edge against the competition in order to apply a strategic approach in pricing and marketing your property all while finding the right Buyer for your home.

I pride myself on being a deal maker and teaming up with experienced professionals to ensure a smooth process from contract to close. My passion, hunger and around the clock work ethic combined with my willingness to go the extra mile while building solid relationships continues to be the foundation of my success. If you do not believe me, see what my Clients are saying about me.

"Working with Mark could not have been better. (we worked with another realtor previously and the experience was night and day) He was responsive, informed, and willing to work with us for as long as needed in order to find the right property for us.”

"I cannot recommend Mark highly enough. …... For me, two things really set Mark apart from agents I've used in the past and other agents I interviewed: (1) his knowledge of the northwest side neighborhoods in which I was looking, and (2) his knowledge and experience as a contractor and of building and construction.”

"We spoke with numerous brokers, many of whom were too intimidated by the complexity of the deal. Our initial correspondence with Mark, however, was refreshingly different. Mark outlined a detailed strategy on how to deal with the HOA, the tenants, the lenders, and how we could issue a credit for the special assessment. We agreed on a fair price and clear commission terms. His professionalism and commitment were clear from the start. Enthusiasm for a deal is easy in the beginning, but Mark maintained his demeanor throughout this difficult process.”
