Mark Pruner is a director of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New England’s New Development Group in Greenwich, Conn., focusing primarily on new residential developments and serving as a sales executive. He is also a strong advocate for his beloved community of Greenwich, itself, in print, online and in public.
Pruner says he has worked to battle misinformation in stories from major news publications and others slanting coverage of Greenwich and its many well-to-do residents. Through his own real estate column for the Greenwich Sentinel and his blog at GreenwichStreets.com, Pruner has tried to put out accurate information about the town’s real estate market to help counteract misleading aspects of these stories. He works to get good coverage about Greenwich, including the New York Times’ recent article about backcountry Greenwich, and is also an active speaker. Furthermore, Pruner is a director of the Round Hill neighborhood association and heads up a committee to promote backcountry Greenwich.
Pruner was previously a real estate attorney, marketing executive and entrepreneur with experience making organizations grow rapidly. He was in-house counsel for a large corporate landowner, founded an interactive marketing and PR company, and was a Washington, D.C., lobbyist for tribes and rural broadband.
Regarding real estate, Pruner says, “High-end real estate is changing, and to succeed–and for the community to prosper–you have to take a multi-pronged approach using new innovations while keeping the best of the traditional approach.”
