Mark Vega

Agent: New Jersey

As a New Jersey native, and a seasoned real estate professional, I recognize and value the trust my clients place in me and I strive on a daily basis not only to meet, but to exceed their expectations. As a certified general real estate appraiser and a licensed real estate agent, I am uniquely qualified to counsel, advise and guide my clients with a level of expertise held by few. I recently joined Sq. Ft. Brokerage as a real estate agent representing the New Jersey market with a specific focus on serving the needs of the healthcare community. Focusing on the healthcare community on a granular level, allows me to achieve my client’s objectives of identifying the appropriate location while optimizing leasing terms or acquisition pricing. As a seasoned real estate professional agent, appraiser and a lifelong New Jersey resident I can provide extensive insight into markets throughout New Jersey further enhancing the client’s experience of transitioning into a new location.
