The founding director of PRDnationwide Newcastle and Lake Macquarie, Mark Kentwell has built the business from its beginnings in 2005 to what it is today – the company chosen by more home sellers than any other business in the entire region. Mark’s primary activity is still selling properties and the results he achieves month in, month out have led to an incredible volume of repeat and referral business, and a nationally recognised track record.
With the full resources of the region’s leading agency and unique team structure he has pioneered in Newcastle, he is able to offer home sellers a level of service and results beyond comparison. Mark has an approach that goes beyond just marketing a client’s property and showing buyers through; he provides the strategic advice a client needs to create a premium price on their property.
A multi-award winner in the industry, Mark is constantly achieving new sale price records for each category of property he sells, and in the past five years has sold more homes at auction than any other agent in Newcastle, Lake Macquarie or the Hunter.
Mark is sought after as a keynote speaker at national training events for his cutting-edge methods of achieving consistently better results in the marketplace. He has an unlimited amount of energy and experience, and he brings a new dimension to every property sale.
It’s no surprise he is one of the most talked about and recommended agents in the region. Mark’s achievements include:
- Australian Regional Principal of the Year across all brands at the Australian Real Estate Awards 2014 (There are more than 4000 regional principals in Australia)
- Ranked in the Top 50 agents on the Real Estate Business Magazine Top 100 Agents in Australia 2012, 2013, 2014 (There are more than 30,000 agents in Australia)
- PRD’s No.1 Selling Principal nationally from 2008 to 2013
