Mark, a Nashville & Middle Tennessee native, has deep roots in the area, having grown up in Murfreesboro and now residing in Franklin. His journey in real estate began at a young age when he discovered his talent for identifying investment opportunities and buying and selling properties initially with his father’s help & eventually all on his own. While pursuing his BBA in Finance at MTSU, Mark continued to nurture his passion for real estate.
Seeking a new challenge, Mark shifted his sales career to the medical field, spending 30 years selling cardiac medical devices. This experience honed his negotiation skills and taught him the importance of prioritizing and advocating for his clients throughout complex contract processes. However, Mark eventually realized his true calling lay in the housing market and made the decision to return to his roots, reentering the real estate industry in 2018. He joined forces with Ethan Lanagan to form a highly successful and top-rated team. He now focuses on residential homes, land & development.
Beyond his professional pursuits, Mark is a proud descendant of the Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence of 1775 and a member of the Sons of the American Revolution. His passion for history is evident, and he thoroughly enjoys exploring new historical sites and delving into the past. When he's not immersed in real estate or history, you'll likely find Mark sailing along the East Coast or in the Bahamas or possibly casting a line in the Caney Fork River with his three children and golden retriever. His love for Tennessee runs deep, and he firmly believes there's no better place to experience live music than the many outdoor venues or the iconic Ryman Auditorium, where the melodies reverberate off the historic hardwood floors and pews. On Saturdays the Fall you can find him supporting and cheering on the University of Tennessee Volunteers.
"Ethan by far is one of the most driven, caring people I have ever met. I have been working with him personally now for over 5 years and he has always exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend him to any of my friends. When it comes to finance, networking, real estate, and consulting work you cant get any better than Ethan Lanagan."
"Ethan is very knowledgeable, kind and helpful. It was a pleasure working with him. He provided me comps for my properties and kept me updated on the market. I would strongly recommend his service to anyone looking to buy or sell a property."
"Ethan is a real estate rockstar and brings his expertise along with a solid team. Not only is he familiar with the area and various home types, he's on top of market trends and developing the best strategies for getting an offer put together and accepted. Our process was super smooth and I credit that to Ethan's confidence, know-how and friendliness in dealing with both us and the selling agent. You are going to get premier boutique service from Ethan and his team."
"Ethan took the time from the very beginning to sit with us, really learn about what we were looking for and explain every bit of the process to us. He created a very no pressure atmosphere and took time to educate us so that we felt comfortable through the entire process. Ethan is super accommodating with working around our busy schedules and was able to very quickly set up appointments to view places we were interested in even with very little notice from us. I’d very much recommend him to anyone in the market to buy or sell!"
"I met Ethan in 2005, and I have had the pleasure over the past 10 years of getting to know him, both professionally and personally! I can tell you that Ethan is without a doubt someone who has morals, ethics and integrity. I loved working with him because he always brings something of value to the table and he refuses to take shortcuts! He loves people and it shows through his commitment to excellence!"
