Welcome and thank you for visiting!I'm Mark Fitzpatrick, a full-time Realtor here at RE/MAX Town Center in Park Potomac, Maryland.
I've helped clients buy, sell, rent, and renovate over $50,000,000 in properties over just the last 5 years.
I have deep knowledge of the North Bethesda, Bethesda, Rockville, and local market area. I live and breathe here every day, in and out of properties, grocery shopping at MOM's market, and talking with people about their real estate needs.
I’m looking forward to meeting you and learning more about how I can help you – be it buying a new home, selling your home, finding an investment property, or just getting some information to help you get started in the process.
A little history… I was first mentored in real estate back in 1988 by a top realtor named Joe Apichella – originally my high school accounting teacher. While attending Bowie State University full-time and playing college football, I helped him with some open houses during the off-season. I saw all the little details he focused on with each transaction. Now retired in Florida, we still talk regularly about family, fun, and of course - real estate.
At the end of college, known for my intense, creative workouts, 1988 Olympic gold medalist boxer Andrew Maynard asked me to train him (strength and conditioning). And so I took on this challenge – culminating with a WBC World Cruiserweight title fight in Paris, France. After this fight, he asked me to manage him. Knowing the power of a team, I called Ben Wilson my attorney/sports agent (uncle of now NFL star Russell Wilson) and we put together a new management team.
Having accomplished the goal of getting Andrew Maynard in good hands, I knew the boxing world was not where I wanted to be long term. I decided, at the urging of a friend, to work with a small, real estate mortgage brokerage in Laurel, MD. Several years later, I met a custom homebuilder looking to build a new business providing backup power solutions. He wanted me to partner with him, and I took on the challenge.
We grew the business rapidly, and in doing so I went through about 5,000 homes in Bethesda, Chevy Chase, Potomac, Silver Spring, Rockville, and throughout Montgomery County. From 1,200 square foot homes to 20,000 square foot mansions overlooking the Potomac River to an entire subdivision.
During this time, I worked with buyers and sellers of homes, real estate agents, estate managers, engineers, architects, designers, electricians, plumbers, attorneys, custom homebuilders, country permitting offices, inspectors, and a host of other players in real estate. I saw homes go from plans to completion. Also in this time, I personally bought and sold multiple homes, worked with contractors through renovations, and bought undeveloped land.
I’m married to my beautiful wife and skin specialist Nhan (Little Oasis Spa), and we have two very active children – currently both seven! I once lived directly across the street from the late Charlie Crown and his lifelong farm (now Downtown Crown). We would talk a few times a week. He’d give me fresh eggs, and the run of the land with my lab. I met my wife just up the road. With my business and my wife's spa located just two blocks from the new Pike & Rose area, this is where we spend most of our days.

Bethesda Park condos – Lifestyle & Amenities
Bethesda Park is a sprawling, older, garden style development just off Parklawn Drive in Rockville, MD 20852. It's just a few blocks off of Randolph Road (and about a 1/2 mile from Rockville Pike). The three streets you'll see for the condo buildings are Academy Way, Crossfield Court, and Braxfield Court.
This part of Parklawn Drive, nearly all the way to Twinbrook Parkway, is mostly industrial and warehouse style businesses. And since the condos are tucked away nicely off Parklawn and surrounded by trees, they are -- if you're unfamiliar with the area -- easy to drive right past.

Amazon Will Bring A Ton Of Cash and Opportunities To North Bethesda
Amazon has officially narrowed it's 2nd headquarters down to 20 locations. But let's be optimistic. Let's think forward about just how big this Amazon move to the White Flint location, or another location in DC or Northern Virginia.
Since I live and breathe in the White Flint (North Bethesda area), I'm going to be even more optimistic that this will be Amazon's choice. Why not right?
No matter the location, you can easily transfer the affect on your local area. And the reason I'm going to be optimistic that Amazon will choose a DC, Maryland, or Virginia location is simple. Washington DC is the center of the world. Amazon founder Jeff Bezos recently bought a massive property

It starts on the 11th floor, above the also brand new Canopy by Hilton hotel, and runs all the way up to the rooftop hangout just above the 21st floor penthouses.
The location is enviable, and for those a little forward thinking, I believe a better value than downtown Bethesda.

And if you're new or old to the area, 20852 zipcode is for the most part being rebranded as North Bethesda. I like to use this myself to separate the distinguishable zone from Rockville essentially north of Bou Avenue and Rockville Pike.
While nothing is 100% final in terms of the overall finished product that will be the White Flint Redevelopment, the
