With 17 years of dynamic experience in business, real estate, social networking & technology, Mark Gonzales has proved resilient pivoting no matter what circumstance arises. After obtaining his Bachelor's of Science Degree in Business and Real Estate, Mark was awarded the 30 Under 30 Award from the National Association of Realtors® in 2009 for pioneering social media to sell real estate. As a result, he defied the market at the time, successfully selling homes in the Great Recession.
His innovative relationship-building strategies have provided opportunities outside of his brokerage practice. He has built real estate teams for a well-known real estate tech brokerage website, expanding to over 80 cities. The startup went public with a valuation of over $3 billion in July 2017 and is now traded on the NYSE. In addition to his tenure in real estate technology, he served as a Director of Luxury Estates with the Sally Forster Jones Group - 2019's #1 Luxury Team in the Nation awarded by Inman with over $7 billion in total sales volume.
Being Filipino-American, Mark is proud of helping diverse clientele create their legacies. As a son of a successful healthcare CEO & real estate investor, his mother showed him the importance of a strong work ethic and investing in your first home. "Our clients have been able to use their equity increasing their wealth passing it on to their children. Now their children are coming back to us as adults, purchasing their first homes. This makes our work extremely purposeful and rewarding. We really get to help our clients make the American Dream a reality."
As a native Angeleno, Mark enjoys all that Los Angeles has to offer: from dining at the newest restaurants in the city, hiking the trails of Runyon Canyon, to paddle boarding in the Pacific Ocean and attending events at the Hollywood Bowl, Mark doesn't only sell the LA lifestyle, he lives it. In addition, he dedicates time to personal development, spreading his message of hope & inspiration by creating social media content which he calls #DoseOfPositivity - a hashtag he created in 2011 as a result of expressing gratitude for life.
Over 18 years of experience helping clients buy and sell homes with the utmost care. Recipient of the National Association of Realtor's 30 Under 30 Award & Angeleno Magazine's Power Players 2020.
