Having entered into a Real Estate career during the “crazy, off-the-hook market” of 2007, Mark Vennitti knows a bit about working hard to help clients succeed. Whether it is during a thriving market or a remarkable downturn market, like the one he found himself in right after entering the business, he remains committed to cooperation, responsiveness and honesty. Through his association with HER REALTORS®, the country’s largest agent-owned Real Estate firm and a behemoth in the Columbus, Ohio, area, Mark enjoys helping dozens of families each year improve their lives through housing.
For most of his decade in Real Estate, Mark has worked independently, finding it difficult to locate the kind of talent that meets his high standards for service. Real Estate, he said, is not about following up on leads and attracting business. It’s about relationships and earning the trust of each Buyer or Seller. “One of the things I am proudest of is that in 10 years time, my business has increased every year,” he says. “And I think it’s because people see that I’m sincere in my efforts. I’m down-to-Earth, dependable, and I look out for their best interests.”
In fact, Mark values his clients so much that he puts their needs before his own. “As an Italian American, I was raised on hard work and loyalty,” he says. “Those characteristics have stayed with me over time.” He tirelessly markets the listings entrusted to him, ensuring that homes are ready for high-quality photography before producing marketing pieces. “HER REALTORS® is the leading broker in Central Ohio and we syndicate to all the online Real Estate websites,” says Mark, adding that he is a preferred partner on at least two of those sites, meaning his listings get high rankings.
Mark, who stepped into Real Estate following a sales career in the golf industry throughout Central Ohio, holds deep market knowledge. As a relocation specialist, Mark’s Seller clients and prospective Buyers gain terrific insight into pricing and trends. Investors also appreciate his wealth of information and his negotiation expertise. His reviews paint a picture of an agent whose clients are often surprised at his eagerness to patiently work through the steps of helping them negotiate with other Buyers and Sellers.
Hearing that clients describe him as someone who treats every client as the only one he has makes him want to work even harder for them. “I stay in touch with people long after their transaction,” he says. “I become friends with folks as they buy or sell a home, they get to know me on more of a personal level than they might with others. I think they sense that I’ve got a beautiful family and an amazing wife and they take a liking to me as much as I like them.”
That family his clients remember, includes his wife and seven children, plus an eighth who is on the way. They are his pride and joy and he creates as much family time as possible. When he can, Mark also likes to golf and plays tennis. “And I’m a past national champion foosball player!” he adds, noting that he still plays foosball, which, throughout his life, has helped him embrace the virtues of having grace under pressure, winning graciously and losing with dignity.
Going forward, Mark is eyeing the day when his second son will be 18. “He’s showing interest in Real Estate as a career and I would love to bring him into the business,” says Mark. “He may become my first official partner; I know he could be an agent I can count on to have that work ethic his Dad instills in him!” With or without his son as a partner, Mark is happy to be in his current place in life. “I’m in my mid-fifties; I’m very active; I’ve got a beautiful family and a career that I love to wake up to every morning. I feel as young as when I was in my 30s!”
