Mark Stock realized after his pro football career was over, it was difficult for him to sit in an office. He had negotiated a first round draft pick, and was solid at Sports Marketing, but being chained to a desk was not his destiny.
He’s taken his skill set in football and applied it to real estate. He is also an official real estate agent for the Redskins.
Football players are a different dynamic in real estate. Mark gives us the lowdown on how players come into the market, the life expectancy of a residence for players, and how the agents & financial planners come into a football players real estate investment strategy.
He’s focused on growing his top 10 in the state, RE/MAX team and avoiding shining things which distract from the main theme of growing a real estate company.
