Prior to forming Hamilton Zanze, Mark Hamilton sponsored the acquisition, ownership and development of nearly 40 multi-family and mixed-use properties in the Bay Area. Mark's primary focus has always been locating value-added properties in changing urban neighborhoods, and re-working them into higher quality buildings with higher incomes, improved tenant profiles, and higher resale values. He also completed the entitlement work on several condominium development and conversion projects.
Mark has considerable experience in: partnership formations and operations; project planning and implementation; asset management and management oversight; risk management; landlord-tenant and rent control issues; and zoning and building code matters. Before forming his own commercial brokerage and investment business in 1994, he worked in the San Francisco office of Marcus & Millichap until 1988, when he co-founded Property Resource Group (real estate brokerage) and Quantum Land Company (development) in San Francisco.
With deep roots in Northern California, Mark has lived in San Francisco since 1978. He earned a Bachelor's with High Honors in English at San Francisco State. In 1983, he earned a Master's Degree in English and American Literature at Brandeis University, which he attended as a University Scholar and Fellow.
In his off hours, the eclectic Mark follows the Giants, reads poetry and is taking classes in Italian. He lives in a Victorian with his two sons in San Francisco.
