Mark is the President and founder of CenterPoint Commercial Properties. He started the company on the principle that smaller local users deserve as much attention as the company’s large national clients. CenterPoint opened its doors in 2001.
Using close knit relationships developed while working with regional and local retail brokerage firms based in Dallas, Mark developed the company to offer as many resources as the big firms. He was then able to provide a full service retail firm, while still providing the personal attention that was the foundation of the company. His knowledge and contacts grew from years of working on both residential and commercial developments. Many of his existing clients elected to stay with Mark as he started his new venture. Many still remain with CenterPoint to this day.
Over time, his client list grew, as did his clients trust in his services. Along with shopping center leasing and investment sale assignments, Mark has represented many local, regional, and national users such as Verizon Wireless, Church’s Chicken, Jack in the Box, Cinnabon, Schlotzsky’s Deli, Metro PCS, Dickey’s BBQ and many more. By working with such a wide array of retail transactions of commercial real estate, Mark is able to bring an intricate knowledge of the market, which provides a better understanding of each investment. He uses this experience to insure his clients make the best decision possible to meet their own requirements.
Often Mark will state the CenterPoint is relationship oriented, not deal oriented. He and his team truly believe that if you take care of the client, everyone will succeed.
