The Prosper Pulse on Real Estate: Meet Co-Founder Mark Schweller
Meet Mark Schweller
Mark Schweller is a well-known face in the California real estate market. More specifically, he has been a 17 year player in the Contra Costa real estate market. He began his real estate career working under Cathy Marples of Marples and Associates Realtors in Brentwood, CA. During his first year in real estate, Mark was proud to successfully close five transactions. Little did he know that was just the tip of the real estate iceberg. Today, Mark is one of the top 1% of Realtors in the state of California!
From Marples and Associates Realtors, Mark transitioned to Keller Williams. This is where his passion for real estate blossomed into the area of leadership and development. He was assigned as a team lead and realized his passion for real estate negotiation and transactions was matched by developing new agents and helping them meet their goals. His first year with a team closed out with 70 closed transactions. He set the pace of 35 transactions that were matched by 35 from his team. This was when Mark knew his career in real estate would not just be defined by real estate transactions but by building teams of successful real estate agents.
After many years of working side-by-side with Aaron Meadows at A. Meadows Real Estate in Oakley, CA, Mark partnered with Co-Founder Heather Winham to open the doors of Prosper Real Estate inBrentwood, CA. Mark and Heather held a shared vision of building an agency focused on building community and not just selling houses. As the Great Pandemic of 2020 shuttered many businesses, Mark and Heather worked behind the scenes to secure a new location in Brentwood for their new brand,Prosper Real Estate.
The word prosper best defines Prosper Real Estate. From clients to supporting agents and affiliate partners, and community organizations, Mark and Heather want to engage people, and communities, so everyone can prosper. If you ever have the chance to sit down and talk with Mark (which we openly invite you to stop by our location at 141 Sandcreek Blvd, suite B in Brentwood), you will find the uses many sports analogies to explain concepts. When it comes to the mindset of Prosper, he explains that real estate professionals and NFL players are similar – both require great coaching, perseverance, dedication, hard work, and continuous learning. And that is what he and Heather provide at Prosper Real Estate.
