Michael Mark was exposed to investment real estate at a very early age. “My father loved to buy and sell properties, we never knew what he was going to buy”. There were rental houses, commercial buildings or development land. He even converted an old bowling alley into rental apartments. After graduating from the University of South Carolina in 1985 with a degree in finance Michael came back to Beaufort to help grow the family furniture business. Starting as an 11,000 square foot old warehouse in downtown Beaufort Michael and brother Larry Mark created a vision of a Furniture and Design complex. In 2000 they developed the Perimeter Walk complex with 60,000 square feet of home-related goods. It is still thriving today. In 2003 Michael became a licensed realtor primarily to be an informed investor but as his holdings grew, friends started using his market knowledge and real estate services to invest. This grew each year until in 2008 Michael left the family business to become a full-time agent. “this was a time when sales were declining, and systems had to be perfected to survive”. Since that time Michael has been servicing both commercial and residential clients. After becoming a CCIM in 2016 the primary focus has been Commercial Real Estate with multiple transactions including development land, historic renovation projects and income producing investment properties. Michael has been very open to helping clients better understand the market and opportunities. If there is any downtime Michael is an avid inshore fisherman and is a State vice chairman of the Coastal Conservation Association and helps with oyster bed restorations and offshore reef-building along with other topwater projects in South Carolina.
