Mark Karten

Associate Broker

Over the last 11 years, Mark has helped hundreds of clients fulfill their real estate needs.

As Managing Director, Mark focuses on three cornerstones to support and expand the strength of Highline Residential.

RECRUITING - finding the best new talent entering real estate and providing the hands-on knowledge necessary to succeed, as well as helping experienced agents attain their desired goals.

LISTINGS - meeting with property owners, landlords and private co-op/condo owners looking to rent out their property. Our mission is to reduce your time and stress while protecting you against preventable risk and exposure.

TRAINING - Goal-setting, time management and accountability combined with a positive environment creates success. Mark and the entire Highline team provide the ongoing support needed to overcome the daily challenges that real estate offers.

In business, there are two types of customer service - transactional, where the agent disappears once the rental or sale is completed. The other method is relationship-based, which Mark embraces and encourages all agents to follow. Building a relationship includes actively listening versus multi-tasking and in turn, providing the information and service that's requested. It is a relationship built on trust and respect, nothing is more important.

If you're tired of lip service with no follow through, contact Mark to have a conversation about how we can help you.


Client Comment
Ron Turner - Turning Point Diagnostics
Mark has it all right. He listened carefully to what qualities we were seeking in a property, and then he delivered. He knows the entire landscape of start-up friendly properties in Manhattan. Most importantly, Mark was honest with me and he did not try to oversell. I found that to be an uncommon trait amongst three other "start-up" agents who left me feeling puzzled about where to locate our new business office. Mark asked me what we envisioned (and believe me we have this whole, elaborate vision), then he thought about it and came up with the right property quickly. Mark is the consummate professional.

If you're looking for commercial real estate in New York City for your business, Mark Karten is the guy you want in your corner. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of what's available, and can find the perfect home for your business reflecting not only your business needs, but also your budget. He's fast, efficient, always on time, and will assure that you see the best options available. I'm thrilled with the space he found for my business, and there's no way I could have gotten this gem without his expertise.

My dream was to have a 3 person private office with a window and natural light, overlooking Manhattan. My budget was limited and I didn't think something like this was within reach. I was referred to Mark Karten and within days, Mark narrowed down my options to three choices and I'm now in my dream space, for the exact budget I asked for. Thanks, Mark! I really appreciate all your help and will definitely refer you to friends and colleagues.
