An electrician by trade, Mark brings a high energy approach to every situation. His vast experience and ability sees him earn exceptional results for his clients.
Otherwise known as Mr Fixit, Mark’s ‘can do’ approach to life is the key to these great outcomes.
Born in Wellington, educated at Nelson Boys College. Travelled overseas before returning and becoming a qualified electrician, Mark subsequently established his own business and enjoyed the people contact and providing individual solution for clients.
In 1995 relocated to Auckland. Started his career in Real Estate in Parnell and completed AREINZ qualification.
Mark joined the UP team in 1999. Together with his partner Melinda Jones (something of an icon in the cosmetic industry) they reside in Ventnor Rd Remuera.
There’s no doubt that Mark’s background as a tradesman brings added value when marketing a home eg. he looks at the results of building reports as a problem solver. His in-depth knowledge of construction and history of dealing with local council has helped many clients find their way through often unknown territory, creating the confidence required to proceed.
“ I love being part of the U.P. team, our approach consistently achieves outstanding results. That’s what I love, exceeding vendor’s expectations.”

We immediately found Mark to be a very personable, accessible and reliable real estate agent. He is a very good listener and seemed to quickly understand what we were looking for in a new house. He has kept in touch with us even after we signed up on our new home. We would not hesitate in referring others to Mark.

Having been actively viewing the local market over a period of 3 months, we first met Mark at an open home we attended and were impressed with his approach, his knowledge of the property and his follow up. Mark will be our agent we decided.
Our house was auctioned and the preparation for the auction was done in the most professional manner. We had large numbers through the property and a lot of follow up was required. We were constantly kept up to date with buyer feedback. It was only towards to the end when individual potential buyers had been identified that further visits were involved with valuers etc. Mark organised and attended all of these visits himself. The house sold at auction and we were very happy with the price.
Mark then set about finding us a new home, no easy task in a market with few to choose from especially with our requirements being very specific. We found Mark to be extremely helpful, not wasting our time by showing us places which didn’t fit our needs. As it transpired we ended purchasing a property which Mark had listed.
Having bought and sold within a short period, we have spent a lot of time with Mark and as well as being totally professional and true to his word he is a pleasure to be around.
We have no hesitation in recommending Mark to anyone looking to sell their house, and would be happy to provide further recommendation.

We are delighted to recommend Mark as the person that you should use to market your home. Naturally you should only choose Mark if you want to work with an honest, decent person who will listen to you and ensure that the sale is conducted with flawless efficiency and a sense of style.
Mark was the eternally positive cheerleader of our house sale process, while remaining rational and realistic about the feedback from open homes and viewings. Always working for us and available to potential buyers at any time of the day or night, he juggled our weekly "state of the nation" meetings to fit with our busy work and family schedules.
The quantity and quality of communication was excellent and we always felt as informed as possible during the marketing/sale process.
With the support of the team at Unlimited Potential, wonderful photography morphed into beautiful marketing presentations for use in the various advertisements and during the open homes. A carefully planned and executed campaign in print and online media meant we attracted excellent numbers to our open homes and that ultimately translated into having at least four active bidders at the auction on 10 November 2010 where our home sold under the hammer.
We have already recommended Mark to our neighbours who are contemplating selling and all we could wish is for him to become the person that everyone calls when they have to go through that life changing experience of buying or selling property.
I have known Mark Ambrose for eleven years and in that time have sold two houses and bought one with Mark as our agent. I have also introduced Mark to three friends and they have all also bought and sold houses through Mark.
Mark is without a doubt the best agent I have ever dealt with. He is completely professional and efficient whilst at the same time managing to maintain a great rapport with his clients. He always tries to get the best deal whether you are the buyer or the seller. In my opinion Mark always goes that "bit extra" something which just doesn't exist with other agents any more.
Mark, himself is a talented builder and it is of huge benefit to be able to look at houses with Mark as he is always able to answer questions relating to the construction of houses or give a very professional opinion of something that may otherwise be over looked. Nothing is too much trouble for Mark even down to helping change light bulbs or fix a catch on a window for you if need be!
He works tirelessly for his clients and will often call around out of hours just to keep updating situations or letting you know how sales or purchases are progressing. I think one of the best qualities Mark has as an agent is the fact that he is never 'pushy' he is always extremely respectful and kind.
All of our deals went smoothly with Mark as our agent and even living overseas, as we do, presented absolutely no problem when it came to making deals and organising paperwork from a distance.
I would only deal with Mark as my agent if I was buying or selling houses in Remuera or Parnell. He has intimate knowledge of the areas which is just so helpful when making a decision. I can't recommend Mark highly enough and also thank him for everything he has done in assisting our family with our various house deals.
I would like to place on record the recent excellent personal service my wife and I received from Mark Ambrose and Ian McHerron, first in the purchase of a property in St Heliers and subsequently in the sale of our home in Orakei.
Throughout the two transactions they both acted in a highly professional, effective and courteous manner and, in the case of our sale, achieved a very satisfactory result with a minimum of delay. Their advice was readily given throughout and we had no hesitation in following it.
It has been a pleasure dealing with Mark and Ian and we are happy to recommend them to other potential clients.

Mark delighted us by matching us with an apartment we love and selling our house all in the space of four days! A fantastic example of his knowledge of his clients' requirements and of the properties he is selling. Mark's experience, professionalism and friendliness made the sale and purchase as painless as I'm sure they could ever be and we are most grateful.

We first met Mark when we attended an open home a few streets away from us. We had no interest in selling or buying but we attended the open home to get a feel of where the value of market is presently at.
Mark struck us instantly as a Real Estate Salesperson who was both knowledgeable & hungry for business. He followed us throughout the house and we were impressed at his knowledge of the value of other homes in our area. After that house we looked at sold, he rang us and told us the price. He then suggested that we should meet and he came around the following weekend. Mark then said that he was certain to have buyers interested in our house and if we liked, we could sell without open homes or even marketing the property. It all seemed too good to be true.
Mark had a list of potential buyers and within a few days we had a cash offer on the table and sold quickly and efficiently and at a price way above the CV. To say that we were impressed with Mark, would be an understatement.
Mark Ambrose is lovely ‘soft sell’ Real Estate salesperson, that is organised, determined, people skilled and for us his positive “I will sell your home for a good price” attitude, got us a very good result that we were more than happy with.
We have met a lot of Salespeople over the years who promise a lot, but do not deliver. Mark on the other hand was totally the opposite and we would have no hesitation to use Mark Ambrose to sell another home for us again, should ever the need arise in the future.
My financial advisor referred me to Mark Ambrose. Mark sold my home and then assisted me with my subsequent purchase.
I would thoroughly recommend Mark. His inter-personal skills are superb. His estimates of both my sale price and purchase price were ‘spot on’. Having appropriate expectations was essential to me in ensuring I could make the best, and realistic, decisions.
He understood what I was looking for in a new home. When a suitable replacement proved slow to find Mark ‘door knocked several suitable properties rather than just wait to see if a property came on the market. When my ‘dream’ home appeared Mark worked very hard to ensure that I had the very best chance of securing it – and I did!
To most people, selling and buying a home is a time of significant stress. It’s not possible to take all that stress away but having an honest, engaged and personable real estate agent makes it as easy as it is ever going to be. And that is Mark.
I am happy to be contacted to discuss further.
