Mark is a director of Bayleys in the North business with thirteen offices North of Auckland; Warkworth, Omaha Beach, Matakana, Wellsford, Mangawhai, Orewa Beach, Millwater, Whangaparaoa, Marsden Cove, Whangarei, Dargaville, Paihia and Kerikeri.
Mark is responsible for the overall direction and strategy of Bayleys in the North, including implementing our growth strategies and our extensive marketing initiatives, and keeping the standards high across the offices. Mark leads a skilled team of real estate professionals, including specialists in all categories of the business - residential, waterfront, country, commercial and property management.
Mark joined Bayleys almost 20 years ago as Group Marketing Manager. In this role he oversaw significant growth in the Bayleys brand nationwide, worked extensively in helping manage Bayleys franchise network and oversaw the development of marketing campaigns for many trophy properties around New Zealand.
Mark saw the growth opportunities for the North of Auckland region and, together with his sister, starting the journey acquiring Bayleys offices in this beautiful part of the world. The first office they purchased was Warkworth in April 2007, and now they have thirteen offices and around 150 staff servicing their clients throughout the North.
Prior to joining Bayleys Mark worked in a variety of marketing and management roles for the NZ Dairy Board, based in Wellington and Singapore, and then Dunlop Slazenger in the sporting goods business, based in the UK and then the USA. A strong part of the attraction of returning to NZ was the quality of lifestyle on offer and he’s determined that he and his family will make the most of it.
Having grown up on a dairy farm the pull to move back to the country was strong, and he and his family are loving living on a small rural block in Matakana. Passionate about the local communities that he operates in, Mark is always getting involved with numerous community causes and initiatives. He coaches rugby at the Mahurangi Rugby Club, is on the board of Rodney Junior Cricket and the Warkworth business association and is a past-President of the Warkworth A&P show.
Mark is, perhaps unusually, a third generation real estate agent and while for many years he thought he wouldn’t work in the business, now he can’t see himself doing anything else.
