Established as one of the top agents on the Sunshine Coast and receiving the highest recognition for a real estate agent in Queensland, Mark was awarded REIQ Salesperson of the Year in 2016 and 2014, and has been a consistent finalist for five consecutive years, nominated again for 2018. He has also been consistently the top Agent for number AND dollar value of sales in the Amber Werchon Property group since he started his career with the company.
With his background as an architect, Mark has an in-depth knowledge of building design, and has the ability to identify and highlight the unique aspects of each property as well as future potential. Mark has designed many commercial and residential properties and has a real understanding of the lifestyle, trends and values that make living on the Sunshine Coast so desirable. He regularly consults to developers giving early design advice to ensure their product hits the target market, and as a result Mark has been a successful project marketing agent, selling out a number of high profile developments. He also has a well grounded working knowledge of local planning schemes and strong connections with local consultants, and has held executive positions with the Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA), as well as the Maroochy Chamber of Commerce. Mark holds a Bachelor of Architecture (QUT) as well as a Bachelor of Built Environment (QUT).
Mark attributes his success to training, ongoing professional development and mentoring, as well as working with a supportive team who are all dedicated to delivering excellence to their clients. Well respected in the Real Estate industry, Mark is one of a select few Queensland based agents to appear on the national audio program, “Real Estate Hot Topics”. He is also regularly asked to speak internationally around the country at sales training seminars for the Real Estate Academy.
Calling himself a Sales Architect, Mark says “I have always had a healthy interest in the property industry, and I feel my Architectural background has been a huge asset and a valuable point of difference…my clients would agree. When making a career change, I wanted to ensure I worked with the best in the industry, so I joined Amber Werchon Property; and the rest is history.”
When not working, Mark enjoys socialising over good food and fine wine, travelling, boating and wakeboarding.
