A California native, Mark was born in Long Beach and grew up Corona del Mar. After high school, Mark's passion led him to work in construction for a year. Pounding nails for what seemed like a long hot summer, Mark realized he needed more education to further his career. He enrolled in the University of Southern California, majored in business and joined the Beta Theta Pi Fraternity. This was a pivotal decision that enabled Mark to start his own business with a mission to provide homes with exceptional value that offer superior quality and features. With his belief in family values and quality construction, for the past 30 years, Mark has built many homes from relationships forged in his fraternity at USC.
Mark and his team have proven that no matter what challenges are involved in the construction of custom homes, they accomplish the objectives with skill and integrity. These 30 years of hands-on experience have served to instill a high level of confidence among Reuter Homes clients who are often friends and neighbors. With each new project, Mark's reputation for thoughtful creativity and attention to detail grows. He continues to gain even more valuable experience and further evolve his design insights. Mark has not only redefined what a home should be, but his vision has, stretched what is thought of as the norm for simple construction. His creativity, and extensive knowledge and the experience of building more than 200 custom homes is also what sets Mark and Reuter Homes apart.
Being a native son of Newport and the surrounding area, Mark genuinely cares about the quality and character of homes that are being built in our neighborhoods. "I live in this area and run into my clients all the time. I truly want them to have a good experience. Building a home is a journey and not always an easy one, my aim is for everyone to enjoy that journey.” Mark also cares because it is woven into the fabric of who he is. Being second born in a family of four children, he was always the peacemaker.“ By nature, I always want people to be happy,” says Mark, “One of Mark’s best assets as a builder and a person are his communication skills which allow him to understand and diffuse difficult situations with his patience and humor.” Says his wife, Stephani of 32 years. "Building a house can be like a marriage, there are ups and downs, you need to have someone who has your back and helps get you through the rough moments. That’s where I believe Mark truly shines." Mark is known for his easy going, fun loving attitude and professional style.
The creative collaborative effort between the homeowners, architects, interior designers and the amazing team of subcontractors is what Mark enjoys most. Whether it’s a custom home from the ground up or a remodel, Reuter Homes will make sure that each client’s personal vision is delivered from start to finish. “It’s ingrained in who I am as a person, I just love every aspect of building homes from the planning stage to completion," says Mark.
Mark's roots run deep in this community. He loves this town and the people who live here. For Mark, helping to create jewels of the neighborhood and legacy homes that families can enjoy for years to come is his ultimate mission and passion. "I am beyond blessed to be working in a business that I love.” Mark's approach leads to constant attention to you and your new home, producing a stress-free and enjoyable home building experience.
