I was born in North Louisiana and relocated with my family to Baton Rouge in 1976. I've lived here for 40+ years. I completed high school and college here. I graduated from Louisiana State University in 1991 with my bachelor's degree. I bought and sold multiple homes as a consumer. That gives me an advantage in understanding the process and being able to prepare you for what you can expect when buying or selling a property. My work background is in education and customer service. I have won accolades and earned recognition in both fields. Let me put these strengths of mine to work for you. I relocated to Tampa, FL in July, 2016 to work as the Productivity Coach for the Tampa Central market center. There I was helping newer agents jump start their careers as well as working with established agents to break through their previous ceilings of achievement.  I came back to Baton Rouge after one year as there truly is no place like home!! I believe everyone has the right to want the best. I will do all I can to help you do just that. Work with me and I will PROVE THERE IS A DIFFERENCE IN REALTORS!!!

My Family Loves Mark. Mark has helped our family buy and/or sell at least 4 houses in the last ten years. If the occasion arises for us to buy/sell again, there is absolutely no doubt that Mark will be our Realtor! He is the consummate professional - informed, educated, knowledgeable about the market, and always has the best interest of his clients in mind. He also has a tremendously helpful network of contacts, having referred us to mortgage lenders and closing agents who were terrific to work with. Not only has Mark helped us repeatedly in the Baton Rouge market, he has also helped refer us to fabulous Realtors in other markets, such as New Orleans and Atlanta. I have, and will again, refer Mark to my friends and family members without hesitation. He is a wonderful Realtor, and a great person to know and work with!

Professional and Friendly. My wife and had a great experience with Mark. When we were ready to put our house up for sale he was very knowledgeable of the business and helped us stage the house to be viewed. He knew several "handyman" type guys that helped us get our house updated and ready to sell. Once we we ready to look for a new house, he was very in tune to what our likes were. He took us out to lunch and asked us multiple questions regarding our tastes and likes. He was able to find homes in our price range and location immediately. Once we had an offer in our house, he was very knowledgeable coaching us through the selling process and the buying process are well. One day he spent his whole day with us going house to house showing us new homes. He made the closing very simple and stress free. I would recommend Mark to any and all of my friends/professional colleagues who are in need of a realtor. Most of all he befriended me and my family. We will continue to have him over for parties and get togethers. He is such a caring and warm person. Yes there are many other people we couldhave chosen as a realtor but I doubt we would have gained a lifetime friend.

Entrust Mark with your family. Mark is the type of realtor you can entrust the future of your family with. A good realtor is not just a person that finds you a property but rather a guide through a life changing experience. Mark understands this and takes his job extremely seriously utilizing his process of finding out your wants and needs. Another thing that also really impressed us was Mark always did what he said he would. If he said he would pick us up at 7 he would be there at 6:45. If he said he would call at 5 you would hear from him by 4:45 if not sooner. We were blessed to find the home of our dreams and have a realtor navigate the transaction with ease.

Knowledgeable, Practical and Trustworthy Mark and his team are incredibly knowledgeable about the Baton Rouge market. Mark grew up in Baton Rouge and knows every neighborhood, no exaggeration. For buyers and sellers in this market, his knowledge is a huge advantage. Mark also gets the math of home ownership and understands budget restrictions, value, and negotiation. Finally, Mark is very trustworthy. Through my experience of selling and buying TWO homes with him, I have him on my "Favorites" list in my phone and will always defer to his opinion for future real estate needs and questions.
