Entering the property industry
Mark’s first foray into the property industry came in 2016 when he took a staff job with Liverpool-based magazine firm Move Publishing to work across its property titles. He soon made a name for himself as a local property journalist, writing regular news and features aimed at the residential and commercial sectors, and attending countless industry events.
Reporting on house prices and the business sector help Mark developed a firm understanding of the property industry, putting him in good stead for the challenges to come.
Joining Online Mortgage Advisor

In the summer of 2018, he joined Online Mortgage Advisor in the role of Financial Writer to help grow and develop the firm’s content output. Articles on bridging finance and commercial mortgages became his forte.
