Mark Thomas Realty was founded in August 2011 by Mark Thomas. Mark has 8 years of real estate investing and property management experience, and is a licensed broker in the state of California (CA DRE License # 01908687). He purchased his first investment property back in 2004 — the Olivera Road condo that is listed under the Portfolio section. In 2005, Mark bought the Clayton Road condo. Mark completed the purchase of his third investment property on Laguna Street in October 2011. All 3 properties are located in Concord,CA and are currently being rented out.
With 3 properties under his belt and a passion for finding great real estate deals, Mark decided to turn his side business of buying and renting out investment properties into a full-blown company. And thus, the beginning of Mark Thomas Realty.
Mark is certainly no stranger to starting his own business — this is his fourth venture, and his past companies include:
Thomas Executive Resources – a successful recruiting agency that he founded in 2005, and later sold in 2008.
WorkYourCareer – online job board owned from 2008-2009.
Saygent – a voice analysis technology company that he co-founded in 2009 with 2 others. Saygent recently raised $1M from top angel investors, and also has top customers such as Comcast and Directv using its product. The company is still going strong and is currently being run by the co-founders.
