Donald Van de Mark is an expert on Sonoma Valley and among Sotheby’s top producers. He regularly ranks among the top 2% of Sotheby’s International Realty-affiliated sales associates worldwide – some fifty thousand agents.
Good representation requires market intelligence, listening and communication skills, as well as hard-nosed negotiation. These are skills Donald honed as a political and business correspondent for CNBC and CNN. The other ability that Donald brings to real estate sales is professional video production. Properties come alive on video and do so in particular when a skilled storyteller highlights key attributes. He says, “No seller should go to market without a video that tells the story of their property.”
Donald was the first Washington Correspondent for CNBC and anchored the news for CNN out of New York. He currently lives in Sonoma Valley and San Francisco. Among the charitable organizations that he supports is the Sonoma Valley Fund, on whose board he currently sits. Donald was reared in Toronto, has a BA from Tufts University and attended St. George’s School in Rhode Island as well as Upper Canada College in Toronto.
Donald is the author of “The Good Among the Great, 19 Traits of the Most Admirable, Creative and Joyous People.”
