Mark is the newest member of our family team, but is certainly not new to residential real estate. Following a 10 year career in the casino IT industry throughout the eastern United States, Canada and even Korea, Mark changed gears and obtained his Mississippi Real Estate Appraiser License. He practiced in Mississippi before moving home to Midland following Hurricane Katrina. Since 2005, Mark has been a member of the Permian Basin Board of Realtors and has operated his own appraisal business, Midland Appraisal. After building his appraisal expertise in the research and analysis of the Midland market where he provided appraisal services for local lenders, agents, builders, and homeowners, Mark decided to transition into real estate sales. He obtained his Sales Agent license in 2019, and joined the family team in November. He continues to offer limited specialized appraisal services in the appraisal industry, but now brings his considerable expertise and service skills to real estate sales. Mark was born in Midland and attended NMMI, Midland High, Midland College, and then graduated from Texas Tech University in 1995. His family owned and operated the Granada Club for over 30 years while he was growing up in Midland. Mark met his wife Alyson (sister to Claire and Craig) while attending Midland schools, and they now have a daughter who is currently in elementary school. The family are members of First Presbyterian Church, and they enjoy movies, camping, and snow skiing.
