Imperial Real Estate is a full-service independent real estate brokerage serving the South Bay from Long Beach to Manhattan Beach. Primary practice areas span residential, multifamily, and commercial real property sales and investments.
Mark Ehlers is the founding owner and Broker of Record of Imperial Real Estate.
A lifelong South Bay resident, Mark grew up in San Pedro, studied at the University of Southern California, worked in Manhattan Beach (for a decade), and currently lives in Rancho Palos Verdes with his wife, their five-year-old son, and their German Shepherd. At home with investments and enamored by the terraced land he calls home, Mark specializes in homes on the Peninsula and multifamily properties in the South Bay.
Committed to his clients and the community, the guiding principle of Mark’s service is a dedication to helping others and to adding value whenever possible and wherever necessary. Inspired by both the art and science of transactional real estate, Mark endeavors to leverage his experience and skillset for the benefit of his South Bay community.
An expert communicator, Mark exhibits natural comfort at the negotiating table and works to position his clients for success. Merging expertise with instinct and empathy, Mark’s approach to advocacy embraces solutions-based thinking to advance client interests, diffuse undue tensions, and usher otherwise challenging transactions to closing. Drawing experience from over 20,000 unique real estate transactions, it is both second nature and job one for Mark to help people do more with real estate.
Full-time in real estate for over 11 years, Mark is grateful for his career and resulting breadth of experience. Mark's career began with brokerage risk management, where he was tasked with researching, analyzing, and solving challenging real estate issues for a spectrum of residential, multifamily, and commercial brokers. In doing so, Mark developed a wealth of specialized knowledge in varied settings, ultimately gaining the insight to see that real estate is a sport, and that defense wins championships.
Earning the respect of the industry at a young age, Mark has provided best practices consulting services to 24 different Southern California real estate brokerages from Los Angeles to San Diego, ranging in size from a 2-person independent startup to a 400+ agent flagship office. Over the course of his career, Mark has shared his expertise to help thousands of principals, brokers, and agents gain the knowledge and confidence to successfully navigate their own adventures in real estate.
