A resident of NYC since 1980, Mark began his career in real estate as a stager for sale properties. He is known for utilizing a clean contemporary edge allowing the space to be seen for its potential. Mark consistently exceeds the expectations of the owners and realtors, often resulting in bidding wars over properties which had languished before adding his special touch.
While involved in these wonderful projects, Mark honed his skills in providing exceptional customer service by listening to what his clients want to achieve and delivering exceptional results – all traits that serve him well as a real estate salesperson at Halstead.
Mark began at Bloomingdale's as a designer for store windows and then joined Bergdorf Goodman, with the title of "Interior Visual Manager," where he was a key member of the interior renovation, design and merchandising team that created many designers' boutiques including Calvin Klein, Donna Karan, Christian Lacroix and Jean-Paul Gaultier. Later as Visual Director at Steuben Glass on 5th Avenue, Mark not only created store windows but also designed gallery exhibits and did photo styling, catalogue covers and special events. The guest designers with whom he collaborated for new product launches included artist Kiki Smith, jewelry designer Ted Muehling and architects Richard Meier and Michael Graves.
While his work was regularly published in Visual Merchandising Magazine, a highlight of his career at Steuben was being invited to create centerpieces of America's finest crystal at a White House formal dinner awarding excellence in the arts. Mark was also called upon as a retail designer for the grand opening of Westfield's World Trade Center, designed by famed Spanish architect, Santiago Calatrava.
Years of work in luxury and style have honed Mark's exceptional eye and have given him an uncanny ability to discern a customer's likes and needs. Mark looks forward to facilitating purchases, sales and rentals for the buyer and seller who expects high quality customer service. That is his trademark as so many can attest to. Please reach out at any time. Mark is happy to assist.
