Mark Jerusalem

Mark has 20 years of sales and marketing experience including over 10 years selling residential real estate throughout Los Angeles. He began his real estate career at Coldwell Banker in Beverly Hills and is now based at the prestigious Sotheby's International Realty office in Pasadena. He has closed deals throughout the Hollywood Hills, Los Feliz, the Wilshire corridor, West Los Angeles and Santa Monica while also representing buyers and sellers in Pasadena and the surrounding communities.

Mark's international background is the single most defining aspect of his life, both professionally and personally. Growing up, he spoke German at home as his parents had moved to the United States just before he was born. As a teenager, he lived in the Middle East and attended a prep school in Austria, and during college he studied at a German university. Having earned an international MBA, he brings a professional understanding to the business behind real estate, including expertise in marketing, finance and economics. Mark is passionate about home design and restoration, landscape design and gardening as well as architecture and travel.

Having worked with an international clientele throughout his career, Mark particularly enjoys connecting with people from many backgrounds and cultures. Strategic thinking, patience and perseverance, coupled with a focus on understanding clients' particular needs, has helped ensure that the sellers he represents maximize their return on investment while his buyers can secure the home of their dreams. Mark recognizes that achieving client satisfaction goes beyond the pure financial aspect of the sale, so he takes the time to understand his clients' overall needs and long-term goals related to the lifestyle they seek and the real estate they want.

As a home owner in South Pasadena, Mark is active in the community, currently serving on the board of South Pasadena Beautiful and volunteering in fund raising activities at Descanso Gardens.
