Transaction Coordinator and Buyers Agent
Born in Texas and raised in Carmel, California, Elizabeth studied Political Science and Sports Management at the University of Santa Barbara prior to moving to Los Angeles, where she has spent considerable time mastering the Westside Los Angeles market.
Elizabeth brings a broad background in marketing, communications and client relations to the team, having worked for the prestigious golf tournament AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am and the PGA Tour.
But it wasn't until working for a small commercial real estate firm in Santa Barbara that Elizabeth found her true calling. She realized that a career in real estate was the ideal way she could do what she truly wanted to do: help people. She knew helping people achieve their dream in buying or selling their home was the perfect professional fit.
Knowledge, honesty, integrity, dedication to her clients and a work ethic that gets stellar results are Elizabeth’s commitment to her clients and the Ben Lee Properties team. Elizabeth is well qualified to help clients understand the nuances of purchase agreements, disclosures, escrow instructions and amendments, inspection contingency process, and city-mandated retrofitting. Elizabeth’s other responsibilities include being on point with loan brokers, escrow, title, and keeping clients informed throughout the entire process. No question or concern is too small - Elizabeth is always happy to help!
When Elizabeth is not working you can find her testing out a new gourmet recipe, on a dive boat, golf course, or spending time with her beloved boyfriend Max & their “dog child”, Wyatt.
Mark brings an enthusiastic and friendly attitude to the Ben Lee Properties team and is essential to making the busy office run smoothly. In addition to likely being the first voice you’ll hear upon calling the office, Mark’s responsibilities also include managing the listing and escrow processes, helping with paperwork pertaining to offers, contracts, conducting private showings, hosting open houses, and running inspections. Mark also coordinates the team's top notch marketing division by overseeing print and web marketing, managing the team's website, social media and email design campaigns.
Born in Kentucky, Mark studied at Berea College where he earned his BA in Liberal Arts. Post graduation Mark moved around our beautiful country before landing first in Louisville, KY and then later moving to Houston, TX where he was a company member at the After Dinner Players. After a few years of living in Nashville and New York City, he ultimately settled in the greatest city of them all: Los Angeles.
Almost immediately after arriving in LA, Mark began working in real estate, specializing in areas from Hollywood to Santa Monica. His love of this business has only increased since moving here over ten years ago.
Mark currently lives in West Hollywood and his hobbies include running half marathons in the surrounding counties, reading mystery novels, acting in plays and films and spending lots of time with friends and family.
