As a full-time Realtor® and native Chicagoan, my mission is to be your trusted resource and valued adviser through each step of the real estate process and beyond.


I have extensive work and expertise with downtown highrise condos and apartments, as well as properties in the surrounding neighborhoods. I also specialize in working with buyers, sellers, investors, landlords, and renters in real estate transactions spanning all price ranges. My negotiation skills, tools, knowledge and experience ensure I deliver the best price and terms on behalf of my clients. I also use electronic signatures for quick, easy, and convenient document transactions.


Prior to my time with Baird & Warner, I spent my life navigating both the urban and suburban communities in Chicagoland as a sales and purchasing agent in product distribution. That unique experience has allowed me to provide clients with key insights into what each neighborhood has to offer, including interpreting the latest market data, recommending trusted vendors or simply where to get the best pizza.


I am a member of the local and national Realtors® associations and abide by the Realtor® Code of Ethics. I live with my wife and two children in the Tri-Taylor neighborhood near Taylor Street, just a couple miles west of the Loop.


I pride myself in being extremely responsive and communicative to your texts, emails, and phone calls. Contact me any day of the week, day or evening, to ensure your real estate needs hit the Mark!

"I enjoyed working with Mark. He spent a lot of time researching, sending articles about first-time home buying, and helping along the way. He was patient as we looked at many properties throughout the city. He was not as familiar with the area we were looking at, but still spent the time to research the comps, buildings, etc. We did much of this on our own as well and came up with the same information. We were up against a top-ranked negotiator and I felt like I needed to really push to get on the same page as me and ensure we didn't lose out on our opportunity to get the offer accepted. In the end, the seller accepted the offer after a couple rounds of negotiations. Mark does have a good understanding of the process based on his past experience, and he was helpful in walking me through every step of the way. He has a great team behind him for lender, attorney, and inspector, and that was what I found most helpful throughout the process as I would not have known who to go to."

"I have had the pleasure of working with Mark on 2 apartment rentals in the Ukrainian Village Area. The property is unique, a historic landmark surrounded by areas of new construction. Mark was instrumental in helping me focus all remodeling work on features that would bring the best return on investment. This was critical, especially when spending a lot of money rehabbing entire kitchens, replacing 28+ windows, etc. His advice turned out to be spot-on, and the tenants he found have turned out to be wonderful. It was such a relief to have an expert do all the background checks, credit screens and manage the applications. He was so comfortable showing the property and pointing out unique features, prospective tenants thought he lived there. Mark really knows his stuff, and when it comes time to buy another property, or sell this one, he will be the person to do it."

"When I started home searching, Mark was the first agent I contacted. He has left me a very good impression, and I never regretted choosing him. We are able to buy our first condo in south loop within two months with Mark's help.

Mark's knowledge about the real estate market helped me a lot in the searching and negotiating process. He can provide timely and reasonable suggestions and always think of the client's benefit. He won't push the client to make offers, rather he analyze the market and use his knowledge to make an reasonable estimate. This make me feel comfortable and confident when making decisions. He is a trustworthy agent."

"Mark was a true professional who helped our family with the sale of our home. He continuously communicated with us on the process and provided feedback on all actions. He was always available to answer all questions and was genuine to care about our feelings during the process. Many of our transaction occurred via phone or email. Nevertheless it never impeded or delayed our work. Mark definitely did a great job for us and I would recommend him for his diligence and proactive approach."
