“Take a 360 Degree View of Your Real Estate Decisions”

Hello there. I’m Mark Apel, real estate agent, and I welcome you to Chicago, Illinois! As the seat of Cook County and the nation’s third-most populous city, Chicago’s characteristics and attributes extend beyond the state and country. It’s one of the most significant business centers in the world, a global architectural capital, and an international hub for commerce, finance, technology, industry, and more. It maintains one of the world’s largest and most diversified economies. The Second City, Windy City, Chi-Town – Chicago’s cultural influence in sports, music, entertainment, education, literature, arts, cuisine, tourism, and more make the entire Chicagoland area a fantastic place to call home!

As a REALTOR® with Keller Williams ONE Chicago, I help buyers and sellers of real estate throughout the Chicagoland area achieve their goals. If you’re looking for the most experienced, honest, friendly real estate professionals to guide you throughout your transaction, you can count on me. I began my real estate career in 2016, intending to become a property owner. I feel that this business is deeply personal to me. I was born and raised in Chicago, and I understand its numerous neighborhoods' distinctions and complexities. I continually use my valuable insights to assist my satisfied clients.

When working with Mark Apel, real estate agent, you get someone with a strong background in agricultural commodities and metals markets. I spent 13 years at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange trading commodity futures. It’s helped me analyze and interpret data in real-time, make decisive, split-second decisions, and diligently manage risk. It’s also helped me understand that the value of something can be fluid. I focus on accurately pricing my clients’ real estate assets or target properties with precision and intent. And I bring an intense work ethic and analytical approach to residential real estate.

Mastering the art of real estate and its many facets can take a lifetime. But I’ve helped hundreds of clients find a new home in my short time thus far in the industry. And I learn each day to synthesize market data with personal emotions better. In my time as a real estate professional, I’ve earned NAR’s Accredited Buyer’s Representative® (ABR®), At Home With Diversity® (AHWD®), and Pricing Strategy Advisor (PSA) designations. I always look forward to the next puzzle to solve, and I’m not intimidated by a challenge. I look forward to helping you achieve your goals!
