Mark Larmer has spent more than 15 years selling residential real estate throughout Canberra and has helped over 2,100 clients to date. He has been a shareholder of Independent Property Group since 2005. Mark’s business has gone from strength to strength and he has picked up almost every award along the way, including the Real Estate Institute of the ACT’s ‘Salesperson of the Year’ two years running and most significantly ‘Australian Residential Salesperson of the Year 2009 ‘ which is the highest award a real estate agent in Australia can obtain.
In 2013 he turned his hand to auctioneering and promptly collected the 2014 REIACT Auctioneer of the Year award, now even the ACT Government regularly trusts Mark to auction their multi-million dollar land development sites, which says a lot about his skills. Clients can see firsthand Mark’s engaging auction style on the team’s YouTube channel. Mark is often called upon to speak at industry events, train and mentor other agents and he has strong connections with agents in other companies around Canberra due to the respect he has earned amongst his peers. Such industry recognition positions him as one of the best real estate agents a client can employ, but employing a single agent, even one like Mark, is not nearly as powerful as getting 4, which is why ‘OurTeam’ was created – the name Mark, Aaron, Jess and Tania use to describe their unique business unit.
