Meet Mark

Hi, I’m Mark, your partner for better living and for all your real estate investment needs, now and as your family grows.
Real estate transactions often blend significant investments with emotional experiences, and I get that. I truly appreciate the trust you're putting in me to handle one of your most valuable assets. My role as your Real Estate Agent means being an advisor who listens first, speaks with transparency and ensures you benefit from expert, real-time guidance and insights about the market, as well as an extensive network of trades people, designers, architects and other Real Estate Agents who trust, like and respect me. It’s about delivering you the most profitable, efficient and smoothest experience possible. Your peace of mind is paramount.
Prior to serving others in real estate, I spent over 15 years as a sales manager and marketing executive in the Medical/Dental Device Industry. This background equips me with unparalleled professionalism, attention to detail, top-notch service, empathetic listening, effective marketing and selling strategies, and expert negotiation skills—all tailored to your unique needs. My passion for real estate comes from seeing family and friends not having their best interests put first by their real estate agents. And from my own personal experiences buying and selling properties in San Francisco and Los Gatos, living through the challenges of relocating our home and trying to get my international family into the real estate market in the Bay Area.
Ours is a very unique market, truly unlike any other in the US or other international destination. As we were trying to navigate the market, available listings, what we could actually afford and what kinds of home improvements we would be able to do once we moved into the house, there was something missing for me. When we sold our house, the process was never entirely clear and unfortunately included unwanted surprises. I felt like we were missing a true, trusted partner who would take time to help us understand our family’s goals and where we wanted to be in 5-10 years time, and then join us on that journey.
One trusted expert who could explain to us how things worked, connect us immediately with the right lenders and industry professionals, and work alongside us to navigate and troubleshoot the real estate gauntlet and property ownership, minimizing surprises and taking care of the details. I've seen the struggles far too often, and it's become my mission to offer a smooth, secure path for long term success for as many people as possible, while enriching our community and elevating living standards along the way.
In addition to supporting our community through sponsorships of the Los Gatos Education Foundation, Los Gatos High School Sports Programs, Los Gatos United Recreational Soccer, West Valley Youth Theater and Sereno Group's 1% For Good charitable foundation, I treasure spending quality time with my wife, our two daughters, and our two dogs. We love entertaining friends at our house and exploring all the amazing places here in Silicon Valley and the local beaches. I also enjoy (trying to get better at) golf, pickle ball, abstract art painting, and playing the piano.
