Its entrepreneurial culture enables it to quickly and effectively implement investment and asset management strategies.

Mark Holdings' capital partners include institutional real estate funds, other established real estate development and investment firms, publicly traded REITS, family offices and various high net worth individuals. The firm sometimes partners with other real estate operators that perform the day-to-day property management oversight while Mark Holdings performs the asset management services in order to get broader exposure or a specialty in certain asset types or markets.
