Get to Know Real Estate Agent Mark Booth

Meet team member, Mark Booth! Mark has a background in education and construction as a licensed General Contractor which serves him well in advising his customers as they consider purchasing property.

We recently sat with Mark and talked to him about how he Loves Where He Lives and we wanted to share our interview with you so you can know Mark better. Mark is here to help you buy or sell your home in the Smoky Mountains.

Interviewer:
How long have you been a part of the team with Mountain Realty Group?

Mark: 3 and 1/2 years.

Interviewer:
What drew you to wanting to work as a Real Estate Agent in the Smokies, focusing on the valley area with Mountain Realty Group?

Mark:
After years in Construction, building homes and cabins, I have transitioned to selling them. My construction background gives me a unique perspective into the quality of the property. I love the natural beauty of the area and find great satisfaction in helping others enjoy it as well. I have lived here for over 20 years now and am proud to call the Smoky Mountains my home.

Interviewer:
Did you grow up in the Smokies? If not where are you from?

Mark:
No, I am a California native, but have been in Tennessee since I started college.

Interviewer:
Have you had previous careers?

Mark:
I worked as a school teacher for several years before starting my own Service based business. I transitioned to the Construction Industry which eventually led me to Real Estate

Interviewer:
Do you have a favorite recipe you would share with us we could share on the Facebook?

Mark:
Slice a head of Romaine lettuce in half on the long edge. Drizzle with olive oil. Place on medium hot grill for 2-4 minutes until the face is wilted, seared and warm throughout. Remove and sprinkle with coarse sea salt and fresh cracked pepper. Grate fresh Parmesan cheese and add bacon pieces. Top with dressing and eat while hot. (The original recipe used Caesar dressing)
Enjoy!

Interviewer:
Do you have a good short story you could tell us about living in the Smokies, or working in Real Estate

Mark:
Once while checking on a cabin with a pool named “Skinny Dipping” just prior to closing, the renters were unaware that they should have already checked out. Lets just say that the cabin lived up to its name.

Interviewer:
What is your advice to someone who may be thinking or moving to the Smokies or maybe having a second home here?

Mark:
Many people are drawn to the beauty of the mountains and enjoy our slow mountain pace. But some people will find after settling in that they may become lonely because they fail to build relationships and become involved in their new community.
