Mark Kessler was born in Omaha, NE and moved to Northwest Arkansas in the late 1980s. After graduating from the University of Arkansas, he entered active duty in the US Army and served 10 years as an aeromedical evacuation officer (MEDEVAC). Mark moved back to Northwest Arkansas in 2003 to be close to family.
In the last decade, Mark has worked for Walmart and Save the Children US, where he gained significant real estate, contract, analysis, and negotiation experience, which he will fully leverage when working with his real estate clients.
Mark joined Smith and Associates because of the genuine focus on growing the business by building relationships and working as a trusted advisor – not as a “salesperson”. He wants to guide people to best leverage what is likely the biggest investment they will make in their lives through trust and transparency.
Mark lives in and loves Fayetteville (and the rest of NWA, too). He enjoys staying active, learning, experiencing different cultures, and helping others. He has two teenage boys that attend Haas Hall Academy – Fayetteville.
Mark holds a Bachelor of Business Administration from the University of Arkansas, with a focus in real estate finance, and a Master of Business Administration from Hawaii Pacific University.
