Branch Manager, Holdenhurst Road

more about Mark

Mark has been working within the estate agency industry for almost a decade after graduating from Buckinghamshire University with a degree in Sports Science and Psychology. When he left university he was keen to pursue a career in his home town of Bournemouth, in a customer facing environment, taking advantage of his social and sales attributes.

Mark started his Estate Agency career with a local corporate company; which provided extensive training and first insights into the industry. As a tenacious sales person and keen to develop, he later took up an opportunity to experience the other side of agency in a large established independent company covering Bournemouth and Poole. During his time there he expanded his own knowledge into lettings, creating the link between the lettings and sales market that is essential in ensuring maximum sales values and rental yields can be achieved.

Still living locally, Mark enjoys getting out and about on his bike especially heading over towards Hengistbury Head, playing football when he can or getting onto the golf course and is a member of Parkstone and Queens Park Golf Club.
