Professional Profile

Mark Evenson is a starter. Over the span of his 30-year career, he helped start two new branch offices for local companies, The Griffin Companies and United Properties. More importantly, Mark has introduced four national commercial real estate brands to the Twin Cities – launching offices for Cushman & Wakefield, The Staubach Company, DTZ, and, most recently, Avison Young. His passion and success for building and managing cohesive teams amongst independently minded commercial real estate professionals has generated double digit increases in local market revenues at multiple firms while, at the same time, helping his clients make real estate decisions that support their businesses.

Under Mark’s leadership and firm commitment to serve as a fixer for clients, his brokerage teams have been singled out for numerous top achievement awards. For businesses large and small, Mark brings his specializations in site selection, portfolio and transaction management, strategic planning and negotiations to benefit client organizations. Mark knows his clients like to win, and his reputation for eliminating surprises brings clients back for more. Importantly, and perhaps born from his first work experience of detasseling corn and walking bean fields on the family farm, Mark values a strong work ethic…and lives it day in and day out. Mark states, "It is my goal to bring value to my clients. While transaction terms and the physical plant are important, in the end, I want them to evoke a great experience that transcends a real estate project."
