Mark Marquez and Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty Mean It When They Say International

For the past 20 years, Mark Marquez has been honing and perfecting his craft: concierge-level real estate service, now through Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty. His interest started well before his teenage years when his father took him to visit homes for sale. After graduating from San Diego State University and University of Nevada, Las Vegas with a B.S. in Information Systems, Mark started his real estate career in 1998 with Century 21. Mark quickly recorded a $2 million cash transaction and closed over $5 million in sales volume by the end of his first year.

The first step a person needs to take if they’re interested in buying or selling their home is an understanding of financial goals and budget, then a meeting with a mortgage professional to determine purchasing power. Once preapproved, this sets the stage for success when competing in the marketplace against other offers. “When selling, preparing and potentially staging (when needed) to make the best possible impression results in stronger price integrity,” Mark said, “using an agent that has high standards, current marketing, and experience to get the job done.” He served as the 2010 Board President for the San Diego Association of REALTORS and sat on the Boards of Directors for the National and the California Associations of REALTORS for over 14 years. Mark is a director for the San Diego MLS, receiving the 2019 SDAR Platinum Award for highest level of sales production.

“The most rewarding part of his job as a realtor is the recognition that it’s not an ‘instant gratification’ business – the relationships incubating today will create benefits tomorrow.”

“By 2013, I joined Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty, where I specialized in luxury home sales,” Mark confirmed, “finishing #6 county-wide individually among all Realtors in 2019, closing $140 million and 60 sides of business.” This full-service luxury home sales business goes above and beyond expectations, providing concierge service on an international level. Since clients can list their homes around the globe, Mark can make sure sellers get the highest price with the highest level of service from Pacific Sotheby’s. He specializes in luxury residential, new construction, and specialty commercial properties in North County – coastal and inland – where large engineering, medical, and bio-tech companies are creating strong demand. Proximity to the highly rated Poway Unified School District adds to the appeal.

Testimonial: “Mark is an ultimate deal maker that you can count on to work very hard for you with professionalism, integrity, and a darn hard work ethic.” – Scot from Poway

The most rewarding part of his job as a Realtor is the recognition that it’s not an “instant gratification” business – the relationships incubating today will create benefits tomorrow. “It is these relationships that become life-long friendships, which is what I have come to treasure the most in my career.”
