Mark Karten and the TKG Group: Get to Know Mark Karten and TKG; Get to Know His Vegas
Las Vegas, NV – November 6, 2011 – For Mark Karten, whether it’s a person, a house or an entire city like Las Vegas, perception isn’t always reality.
“The media has painted such a desperate picture of Vegas, but I tell people, you don’t know my Vegas,” he says.
Being in the top 1% of agents in Las Vegas, Karten and The Karten Group (TKG) have a vision to dispel that perception–and their reputation proves it.
“First and foremost I’m a businessman. I’ve been selling for over 30 years and I’ve learned that if you’re going to be successful, it’s not about you.”
He learned that value early on from his grandfather, a salesman, who as Karten says could make anyone feel special, even a six-year-old.
“He listened and he cared. It took me a long time to realize that was the sales side of him but it was a part of him, a charisma that was genuine and I saw why people liked him.”
Karten’s similar personality and stellar communication skills have undoubtedly contributed to his success. In working closely with relocating families and investors, Karten writes and distributes a weekly newsletter. Sharp, candid, and personal, the newsletter includes a feature called “MY Vegas” which exposes the lesser-known aspects of his city, as well as the TKG Investment Report, a comprehensive resource comprised of MLS listings specifically geared towards investors.
“I publish it on Sunday and by Monday, half of the properties are gone,” he says.
It’s his attention to detail and the attention he pays his clients that makes Karten and TKG stand out among the rest.
This past summer, TKG launched TKG Heroes, a philanthropic endeavor offering teachers, first responders, law enforcement and military (active, retired, or veteran) 25% of TKG’s commission back to the Hero with each home purchase or sale.
“You risk your life and you’ve forsaken money to do a greater good, it’s a no brainer to me. It’s a way for us to show them our appreciation. Giving back is my reward,” he says.
It’s just one more way Mark Karten and TKG are opening doors for the people of Las Vegas.
“This has nothing to do with real estate; this has to do with life.”
