He became a founding shareholder and director of a property finance company in 2000 which was listed on the NZX in 2004.

With his background in property-based lending and financing small scale projects to large multimillion dollar property developments, Mark is well-placed to successfully cater to the needs of clients selling and buying a home. Analytical and driven, he thinks outside the square, is unflinching in any negotiation situation and stays the course even when things seem impossible to achieve. Mark understands better than most how to make a deal work and he’s well-known for his determination to push through for a successful result. With an excellent buyer and property developer network and a substantial depth of local knowledge, Mark is able to turn to his professional connections to assist his clients in the marketing and conveyancing of their property.
A keen tennis player and golfer, when Mark’s not on courses, courts or conducting open homes on weekends, he’s often spotted ferrying his twins to their sporting commitments in and around the city.
