How Great Reputations Are Built, Over the Generations


The Mark Building Company has made its mark as a fourth-generation home builder and master developer with a reputation for creating communities with every generation in mind.

We’ve earned a reputation as the builder who listens, giving buyers a say in the building process. Customization in encouraged. In fact, last-minute design changes based on homeowner input have resulted in some of our best-selling models.

One of our trademarks is to build near the water, preserving mature trees where possible and leaving sites “greener” than they were before.  Our homes are energy-efficient and designed to let sunshine in and keep the elements out.  And all homes must pass this litmus test:  would we want to live here?

With a Mark Building home, it’s easy to start climbing the equity ladder of home ownership. Townhomes built by us in Columbia’s Riderwood community in 2000, for example, were priced in the $140,000s. These 3-bedroom, 2 ˝ bath townhomes – with no garages – are now reselling in the $400,000s.  WaterView, a community of single-family homes in the eastern part of Baltimore County, started pre-selling in January of 2002 in the $170,000s.  The 3-bedroom, 2 ˝ bath model came with a one-car garage and now is selling in the $385,000 range.

Even in declining markets, our home values stay right at the top.
