Mark Vantress



Whether you’re buying or selling your first home, your upgraded dream home, or your tenth investment property, yours is a big investment and can be an emotional journey. I understand and appreciate that you are entrusting me with one of your most valuable assets.

With me as your agent, you're not just getting a professional who uses the best tools and technology to buy and sell your property for the maximum return on your investment, in the least amount of time, with the least amount of stress to you. You're getting transparency and constant communication throughout the entire process, so you can relax knowing every detail is taken care of.

Prior to becoming a realtor, I was a sales manager and marketing executive in the Dental Medical Device Industry for over 15 years. I draw on this experience to provide exceptional levels of professionalism, service, empathy, listening, marketing creativity and expert negotiation skills.

Having visited my English wife’s family in Europe over the last 20 years, I’ve gained an understanding of the real estate markets in the UK and France, along with the ability to relate to international professionals and their families relocating to the US.

In addition to being passionate about our community and Sereno Group’s 1% For Good charitable foundation, I love spending time with my wife, our two daughters and two dogs, painting abstract art and playing Piano.

Silvia R. - Biotech Manager

"I had the pleasure of working with Mark for the purchase of my first home. From the very beginning he was focused on my priorities and worked at my pace. He advocated for me every step of the way, keeping me informed and confident throughout the entire process - and negotiated over 10% off the listing price with favorable terms. I would highly recommend working with Mark to anyone buying or selling a home. You’ll be grateful you did!"

Pessutti Family

"Mark is a highly skilled negotiator and incredibly polished salesperson who cares about his clients. He is innovative in his approach to the buying or selling process and can offer a creative view that I found lacking in other agents. He is trustworthy, a good listener and he is truly passionate about what he does. Whatever side of the real estate process you need, you will be in great hands with Mark."

Young Seo - CEO & Founder, Rodo Medical

"I have worked with many people of various capacities in my career, but Mark always impresses me as a true professional.  He carries out his job sincerely and with dedication as he dedicates himself to his own artwork.  You can instantly tell he is honest and very personable and easy to work with.  At the same time, he is reliable in the team environment.  It is very rare nowadays to find someone like him who is a great colleague at work and a friend in life.  I miss working him."

Chase Garfield - Analyst, KCK Group

"Mark is a very well-rounded, genuine person. He is a hard worker, always striving to be the best he can be and do the best he can for others. Mark is extremely creative, being an excellent painter and musician, and he brings that creativity to his work to think outside the box, where he finds elegant solutions to complex problems. Mark works hard, and that shows in both his process and the end results that he ultimately delivers on. I would recommend Mark to anyone and everyone looking to buy or sell a home, he is a pleasure to work with and will work hard to make you happy."

Craig R. - Peace Officer

"I’ve known and been friends with Mark for over 30 years.  In all that time I have known him, he has proven himself to be reliable, honest and someone worthy of my trust.  Mark always carries himself with a high level of professionalism and is a hard worker with a knack for relating well to in anyone he meets.  Mark is someone I would not hesitate to ask for help because no matter what the request is, I know he will come through for a friend in need.  Mark’s ability to communicate well and focus on people’s needs makes him an ideal fit for anyone who expects a high level of service."

Erin M. Murphy - Marketing Director

Integrity, passion and commitment are what you will receive when you work with Mark. His professionalism flavored with his warmth and sense of humor make him a joy. Mark will get you the results you want!"
