Born in Bergen County, New Jersey and raised in New Canaan, Connecticut, Mark is a proud native of the New York Tri-State area.
After graduating from Indiana University with a Bachelor's degree in English, Mark worked in sales and management positions at an online distribution company and helped them grow from $48 million to $325 million in 11 years.
Mark grew an appreciation for the Lowcountry through regular visits over 15 years to see his wife's family, which inspired him to work with his father-in-law, Tom Tolpa, at The Ocean Broker.
His curiosity for understanding client needs, creative marketing ideas, and positive enthusiasm make him a critical asset to the company.
When he's not at work, Mark is playing jazz guitar, reading mysteries, or taking care of his two daughters at his home in Old Town Bluffton.
What Mark's Clients Are Saying
"No limit to Mark's professionalism and attention to detail during our search and purchase. Mark spent about 9 months start to finish, looking at listings with us than making and negotiating an offer and finally seeing to all details up to and beyond closing. We 200% recommend him."
"This is the second time we have used Mark to buy and sell our homes. He listens to what you have to say and then offers his thoughts and opinions. When it came time to sell our home, there wasn't another choice that we would have made. Mark was our guy and he helped us get ALL details buttoned up in a timely manner."
"If you are looking for a real estate agent who is more than an agent, this is the guy. We looked at and inquired about so many homes over such a long period of time until we found what we wanted. Mark was always willing to go the extra mile and helped us with everything before, during and after the purchase. You could not ask for a nicer, more knowledgeable, personable person to deal with. He is a gem!"
"Mark did a great job locating the ideal villa for me in Sea Pines, as well as negotiating the deal, and following up on the details. He recommended an inspector whose expertise was critically important in identifying necessary repairs prior to closing. He is very responsive and an excellent problem solver. Truly a professional. I highly recommend Mark."
"Working with Mark Devers has been a great experience. He goes above and beyond expectations."
