Mark has lived in Hawaii since he was 2 years old. After attending the University as a Marketing Major he joined his family’s retail business where he was able to direct its growth from 3 stores on Oahu to 23 stores statewide. Upon the sale of the family business, Mark entered the commercial real estate field where he concentrated on both the leasing and sale of investment properties from 1986 until 2010, when he decided to dedicate more time to residential sales.
Having supervised the building of over 20 stores and developed both spec homes and 3 personal residences in Hawaii, Mark has a strong background in the building and development arena. In addition, he has served as a Director on various corporate and non-profit Boards, most prominently for the Outrigger Canoe Club, where he was also President.
During this time Mark was also very involved in water sports, competing and coaching winning outrigger paddling crews. He lives the "Hawaii Life" and, while enjoying the ocean, has racked up over 35 Molokai-to-Oahu crossings and 15 victories in various categories (5 of which were overall!).
