“80% of success is just showing up.” That little gem is one of Mark’s favorite pieces of advice because it speaks to the fact that even if you don’t have all the answers, the ability to find solutions and follow through is often the most important thing. For the last two decades, Mark has been doing just that, helping his clients find solutions to their financial needs. The longtime Seattle resident is known as a trusted banker and is an expert in a broad range of private banking arenas including strategic planning, mortgages, custom lending, deposits, insurance, retirement, college savings, and buying and selling businesses. A born communicator with an easily adaptable style, Mark’s ultimate goal is to simplify his clients’ financial life and help them grow, protect, and transfer their wealth.
Outside the office, Mark and his wife Michelle have beautiful twin girls and a sweet golden retriever named Zoey. He enjoys golfing, skiing, hiking, and traveling with his family. Favorite destinations include Hawaii, Palm Springs, Colorado, the Oregon Coast, and, most recently, Italy. An active member of the community, Mark also volunteers at his daughter’s school, helps out with CYO sports and contributes to Accelerator Y programs geared towards ending youth homelessness.
