Mark Barringer

Real Estate Broker

Mark is a full-time buyer realtor who loves the thrill of the hunt. Whether you're a first-time home buyer, downsizing, upsizing or looking for an investment property, Mark has boundless energy for the home shopping process and will bring his analytical skills, DIY project experience and passion for real estate to assist you in your purchase. Are you wanting to take on a fixer-upper? Mark has experience with numerous projects including complete kitchen and bathroom rehabs, refinishing/installing wood floors, removing load-bearing walls to create an "open concept," just to name a few. Mark joined the DWD team in early 2018 because, as he says, "the collective knowledge and experience of the team is so much greater than any one individual." He will leverage that team strength to help you find your next home!

Mark is not originally from this area. In fact, he grew up in northern California and after high school moved to Honolulu, Hawaii. It was his plan to build his business and life in Honolulu, but he came out to this area on a whim; met his beautiful wife, and the rest – as they say – is history. He is often asked, "Honolulu? Why are you here?!" He would tell you "I love the Midwest culture; these are hard-working, educated people, and I've made deep friendships here." He and Laura have lived in Arlington Heights since 2002.

In his spare time, you'll find him outdoors... enjoying a Cubs game, walking his three beagles, gardening, tending his landscaping, spending time with neighbors.

"Real Estate cannot be lost or stolen, nor can it be carried away. Purchased with common sense, paid for in full, and managed with reasonable care, it is about the safest investment in the world."
