Jonathan Marks, a long time Marin resident, entrepreneur, professional photographer, and family man, epitomizes that which is essential to succeed in the field of real estate. A skilled negotiator, hardworking, industrious, extraordinarily ethical, and ingeniously creative, Jonathan knows what it takes to ensure every real estate transaction is treated with the utmost of reverence and attention to detail it deserves whilst also maintaining a spirit of support, care, and all essential humor to the client.
Having started his own licensed music and entertainment business in the mid-80's working with internationally renowned acts ranging from the Beatles and the Grateful Dead, to the Rolling Stones and Madonna, Jonathan built his business up to a multi-million dollar international success story, gaining arguably a level of notoriety in Japan normally reserved for actors and musicians of worldwide acclaim.
