After a life in the oil fields, and a childhood growing up on ranches, Mark learned about land. But his passion is really people, so why not combine the two, and start introducing people to their little parcel of Texas (or “The Alamo of America” as Mark likes to call it)?
“But, you can’t do it just like anybody else, you’ve got to treat people right, make it easy on everyone and give everybody the same experience. You can’t put a price on personal relationships.”
So the heartbeat for Mark Harman is pretty simple. Bring Character by listening and speaking the truth, clearly. Bring out the character in the land itself, bring people of high character together, be a man of high character, make the character of the transaction smooth and straightforward.
You know Mark’s heart, and his history with land through his childhood and early career in the oil and gas business. What you didn’t know is that he’s a diehard shotgun enthusiast and wine aficionado. You’ll find him up at 5am every morning on his ranch porch just northwest of Fredericksburg, sipping his “magic” coffee and enjoying the sunrise while he corresponds with folks. Ranch life isn’t something he just likes, it’s something he lives.
I was raised on a farm in the Texas panhandle where I learned the value of hard work and to be a steward of the land. I have been active in the Oil and Gas Industry for 40 years. Learning all aspects of the industry but primarily working as a geologist.
For the past 15 years I have been actively helping surface and mineral owners take care of their properties in any activity that involved leasing, selling their minerals or negotiating damages of the surface with oil and gas companies. I look forward to expanding into the sale of land now. Through that I have been blessed to met and assist many people with their land needs.
I have enjoyed the outdoors since I was a child and continue doing that at my ranch in Eastern Oklahoma. I have been married 42 years to my lovely wife Rhonda and together we have 2 beautiful daughters and 2 wonderful grandchildren. My favorite activities in life are anything that involves my family.
