Meet Mark

Coffee Cake & Real Estate Broker

Mark J. Whitehead was born and raised in Australia. At 14 years of age, he purchased his first block of land, 5 acres in llandillo, Sydney for $3,500 and he sold it 12 months later for $7,200. He made more in that deal by buying and selling than his dad did for the year, working 50-hour weeks in a factory. He was hooked on the Real Estate game.

Mark has had a long history in business and in sports. He has owned hotels, night clubs, and tennis clubs around the world. As a former world class Equestrian, he lived next to George Harrison and competed all over the world with his horses, and as a professional tennis player on the ATP tour from 1977-1988 traveling the world on retirement looking for new challenges.

Mark understands the true building cost and how to get there. Aggressive by nature and profit driven, he knows how to put a deal together. Something lacking in most salespeople. He started Surf and Country Real Estate on the Gold Coast, Australia with 2 offices and over 40 agent’s primarily selling his own properties doing approximately 30 plus sales a month.

Mark built a reputation based on TRUTH and full disclosure as well as going the extra mile to make sure his clients are fully informed of the property they intend to buy. Mark started LUXURY HOME AUCTIONS and sold homes that other agents owned not affiliated with him but with some big-name companies. He was always thinking outside the box.

Ask him what you need or want out of your home, it’s a team effort and we all must be on the same page with a common goal to sell as quickly as possible at a fair price for all. It’s not hard. Having the right information is the key.

That is simply why you should have Mark sell your home. He will provide a very detailed presentation with real facts you can verify of his opinion to consider when listing your home and a detailed strategy of how to get there with a real plan, not a simple call “we should drop the price..” That’s NOT typically the answer.

Let’s meet for a Coffee and Cake and talk about Real Estate.

“Most Traditional Methods used here today only give you one opportunity that is to SELL something for LESS than your best expectations! There is a better way…” – Mark J. Whitehead

Brie is super responsive and gets results. In a tough market for buyers she was able to get the job done from the buy side. She has local resources and knowledge. Would definitely use Brie services again for real estate in the future. - J. Cucci

I didn’t feel like a business transaction with Brie. I just felt like I was dealing with a great person. Sounds weird saying she humanized the experience, but that’s my biggest take away. I felt like I mattered. The joy is finally setting in with keys in hand. - V. Guardado

This is was a very positive buying experience. Brie was able to expedite all the process to make the purchase quickly and smoothly. She was available on a constant basis by email and phone with me and the title company to sort all the minor details. Great commitment and focus. - I. Sussman
