Center City Philadelphia Condos
THE CENTER CITY
During the late 80s, Mark fell in love with Philly real
estate. The first condo he bought was in Old
City. Working w/foreclosures on multi-unit buildings,
he began to carve his niche as a condo
specialist. He then progressed into helping developers turn apartments into condos. Having been inside countless
Philly condos, Mark is intimately
familiar w/the available properties.
He prides himself &
impresses others of his vast
knowledge & knows
which finishes buyers look for...so much so
that he's been seen on HGTV's What You Get For The Money, CN-8's
Money Matters & was the 2005 winner of Philadelphia Magazine's
Kitchen of the Year contest.
With a BA in business from Bowling Green in Northwest Ohio, Mark began selling Philadelphia real estate in 1989 and has been in love with it ever since. From Old City to Bella Vista and Society Hill to Rittenhouse Square, Mark knows the ins and outs of every center city Philadelphia neighborhood. He still resides in a high rise condominium building in Center City and loves the area!
