Licensed salesperson in compliance with the Real Estate Agents Act 2008 as administered by the REAA (Real Estate Agents Authority)
Enthusiastic, friendly, adaptable, commercially aware, and self motivated with well developed communication skills, Mark thrives under pressure and takes a highly ‘hands on’ approach to problem solving. He has a keen sense of humour, an optimistic outlook and enjoys new challenges. His particular area of interest is the investment property market.
Before joining Tommy’s, Mark worked as a global commodities trader for the New Zealand Dairy Board and various Northern Hemisphere trading houses. He also worked in funds investment and spent a number of years as a fly fishing guide and ski instructor in New Zealand and offshore.
For the past 15 years and counting, I continue to be one of the 47 lucky property consultants at Tommy's Real Estate. As a team, we are passionate, and committed and dedicated to client service and satisfaction. As an individual, I am goal orientated and committed to achieving the best possible result for my valued clients. I am confident that by sharing my knowledge, integrity and experience, and by working together, we will secure a positive outcome.
My service is further strengthened by having Linda Lum, as support for our clients. Linda concentrates on our marketing, advertising, listing administration, client liaison and buyer appointments, freeing me up to manage vendors, negotiate contracts and work hard with pre-qualified buyers.
Mark is a professional salesman, strong negotiator and deal maker. A Tommy's top performer and true team player. He is a big picture thinker with an inquiring mind, who has a genuine interest in people.
A committed and energetic father of three boys, family life is both busy and rewarding. His leisure interests revolve around fly-fishing, golf and skiing. Fly-fishing actually runs in the family - Mark is also a partner in the family fly-fishing business.
Getting the best result starts with choosing the right team.
"We were really impressed with the way you marketed my mother’s home to show its full potential. In all our dealings with you, we found your outgoing personality really refreshing; you were always considerate and mindful of our needs and available 24 hours to answer any queries or worries that Mum had. Throughout the entire time we felt you were more than professional in your approach to everything, which gave us complete confidence in your ability to sell this home. Your caring and considerate way in which you made Mum feel less stressed and more at ease with this big transition was just the icing on the cake."

"We would like to express our sincere thanks to Mark, who throughout the marketing and sale process of our home, exceeded our expectations at every corner. We found Mark to have integrity, honesty, professionalism, enthusiasm and excellent communication skills. Mark’s marketing strategy best suited our requirements. The use of a buyer enquiry range was used in order to attract a wider range of buyers and we felt this worked extremely well. This method of marketing didn’t limit the price expectations, and as a result, Mark achieved a price with which we were thrilled. From the outset we felt complete confidence that we had chosen the best person for the job. Mark didn’t limit himself to our home; we were extremely impressed when the day after signing 20 agents from Tommy’s came through and inspected the house. All of these agents were courteous, professional and sympathetic to our needs. Our house sold quickly and smoothly, and we believe this was due to an excellent agent backed by an outstanding Company. We could not have asked for a better outcome and would not hesitate in recommending Mark as an extremely capable, competent real estate salesperson. We will definitely engage Mark to sell our properties in the future. With thanks to Mark and the Tommy’s team."

"I had an idea of what I was looking for and Mark was able to put options in front of me that I could consider without having to physically visit the property. The numbers provided were comprehensive and accurate. I selected several to view and then made my decision. Throughout this process Mark gave advice without pressure and listened to what I had to say. He was very helpful without being the pushy salesman, and I appreciate that from him. I also found him to be friendly and approachable with a great sense of humour. I will be asking Mark to help source my next investment property and have since recommended him to several people I know."

"To find, within a week, that I had unconditionally sold my property at the very top end of your range, has left me almost breathless with delight, surprise, relief and very impressed. What has impressed me each step of the way? Your thoroughness, accuracy with details, care for me as a somewhat anxious client, the way you listened to my concerns, your humour and the way you carried the whole thing so ‘lightly’. The whole process has been highly professional and made as easy as possible."
