Mark founded Samuelson & Associates in 1982, just as the typewriter was giving way to the PC. By that year, he had already spent a dozen years in advertising, public relations and marketing, including at Ted Bates Advertising in New York, in the public information office of the National Archives in Washington, and in information marketing at the Solar Energy Research Institute, now the National Renewable Energy Lab, in Golden, Colo.
In tumultuous market years for the Rocky Mountain West, Samuelson has supported some of the region's most successful real estate ventures, including master-planned Highlands Ranch, The Preserve at Greenwood Village, and Daniel Libeskind's Museum Residences at the Denver Art Museum; along with some of its most enduring homebuilders, developers and real estate marketing firms, such as Koelbel and Company, Colonnade Communities, Corporex Colorado, Distinctive Properties, Coldwell Banker, Harvard Communities, Richmond American Homes, Village Homes, Melody Homes, Mile High Development, Colorado Land & Home Company, Prestige Real Estate Group, and others. He has extensive background in technology marketing, and is often called on for special projects tied to public policy...while his experience in center-city projects has put him close to some of the most exciting residential projects emerging from the renaissance of downtown Denver.
He is a former member of the Downtown Denver Partnership's Capital Formation Committee and served the Mayor of Denver on his 1992 Downtown Development task force. His weekly column on the front page of the Sunday Real Estate Section of the Denver Post, "On The Home Front," is in its 16th year. He is married with two daughters.
