4a1f4a41b0dc89f3f3dcf30815dfde7eSan Francisco, Calif. — Pacific Union International, Inc. today announced the acquisition of The Mark Company, which is scheduled to close on Monday, November 2. The Mark Company is the premier urban residential marketing and sales firm, and has represented more than 10,000 residences and generated more than $5 billion in sales for some of the most notable developments in the Western United States.  The outstanding performance of The Mark Company team and its leadership in marketing and sales for new residential developments in the West supports Pacific Union’s recent move into this burgeoning real estate sector.

“The accelerated growth of new condominium housing in the San Francisco, Seattle and Los Angeles markets make this acquisition essential to Pacific Union’s vision for continued success,” said  Pacific Union CEO Mark McLaughlin. “We believe the combined strength of Pacific Union with The Mark Company, the most outstanding brand in the marketing and sales of new construction homes, will create a new force in residential and mixed-use development marketing and sales.”

The Mark Company will continue to operate with its brand name under the banner of Pacific Union International, Inc.  The Mark Company President, Alan Mark, with Executive Vice President and Managing Principal, Krysen Heathwood, will drive this innovative team forward.  They join the strong leaders of Pacific Union Marketing + Sales, Hans Treuenfels and Doug Shaw.  It is a reunion of strengths, as Mark, Treuenfels and Shaw share history at Pacific Union earlier in their dynamic careers.  Treuenfels and Shaw assume the title of Principal in the new organization. This combined team offers a full range of core consulting services, real estate analytics and design for markets throughout the Western United States.

“This will be a powerful, game-changing partnership,” said Alan Mark. “We share a strong alignment of values and culture within our respective organizations. By leveraging each other’s strengths, our services and global reach to buyers will be enhanced for our developers, while our internal team will benefit from Pacific Union International’s depth of resources.”
