I know now that becoming a Realtor was my true calling in life. Prior to this, I spent eighteen years in corporate management, (including positions as Vice President of a multi-state Papa John’s franchise and as Regional Manager for Green Lawn). Not finding personal fulfillment in that career path, I decided to leave the corporate world behind and make the leap into pursuing my true passion; Real Estate. That was over twenty years ago, and I can say in all honesty that this was easily one of the best decision I have ever made!
More than any other aspect of my career, I enjoy working directly with my clients one-on-one to identify your wants and needs in order to sell your home, or find the perfect house in the perfect neighborhood for you or your family. I strive to build a lasting relationship with each and every one of my clients, and I am driven to succeed in order to earn and maintain your trust.
Being a native of and having spent my whole life in Louisville, I have seen first-hand all of the changes, growth, and development this city has undergone. As such, I bring to the table a wealth of knowledge regarding the individual neighborhoods in all parts of the Metro Louisville area, as well as surrounding counties. I have sold homes in Jefferson, Bullitt, Oldham, Spencer, Henry, Shelby, and Meade counties ranging anywhere in price from $50,000 to $1.8 million.
With more than twenty years in real estate, I have extensive experience in all aspects of buying and selling homes. I will work directly with you to make sure you understand every step of the process and are fairly represented throughout. I am a hands-on professional who is not afraid to get dirty when it comes to helping you get your house ready for sell, or showing you every nook and cranny of the house you may be interested in buying. I am no-nonsense and straight-forward when going over the details. And I am a shrewd businessman when it comes to getting the best deal for you. I will invest any time necessary and exhaust all resources to make sure you are satisfied.
More about me: I was married to my high school sweetheart, Catherine, for 41 years before she lost her battle with cancer in 2015. I am a father of three children and four beautiful, spoiled grandchildren.
Here is what a few of my clients have had to say:
“I originally called in a very successful realtor friend, and my sister called in a realtor friend who was selling homes in the area. Mark, a stranger to us, stopped by and offered an assessment and presentation. Of all the three, his was the most comprehensive and thorough presentation BY FAR. Mark also listed everything he would do and the timeline in which he would do it. We were so impressed that we just had to choose Mark, a stranger to all of us. He even offered to help get the house ready. We originally thought that was not necessary as we were hiring people to paint all the rooms, basement floor, etc. and do minor repairs. Little did we know how much help Mark would end up giving us. While we were unsure about cleaning or replacing carpet, he convinced us to pull up the carpet and expose the hardwood floors. Then he pulled up the carpet, cleaned and waxed the floors. Then if that wasn’t enough, we ran into some unexpected water problems that Mark not only figured out what were causing them, he remedied them! Mark also brought in a table, two chairs and a small rug to put in the living room of our totally empty house to have something there to help with the sale. And when the sale was made, (at the date he said it would be), and we had questions about what the buyer wanted to do, he explained everything so well. Then he had me in just before the closing to go all over the numbers so there would be no hold up at the closing. What a great idea! We are so pleased and thankful to have met and worked with Mark!” - Tom Fallon
“Leaving our home of 28 years was extremely difficult. I thank Mark so very much for his patience and kindness from our first meeting to our last meeting. His non-aggressive style was exactly what we needed when looking for a new house. His insight and opinions were greatly appreciated.” - Sharron & Dan Conway and family
“Buying a home for some may mean more or less, but for us it is a fresh start, a foundation, everything. Mark went out of his way to make every step easy and pleasing. This sets him aside from other realtors.” - Ben & Stephanie Patterson
