Mark Gidden


Mark Gidden moved from England in 1975. Starting his professional life as a general contractor in the Edmonton area, he built over 100 homes; this experience provided him with valuable tools when selling real estate.

In 1992 Mark relocated to the Okanagan, where he parlayed his in-depth knowledge of the home building industry into a real estate career over 25 years ago. Having been both a real estate brokerage owner and a successful home builder, Mark has an abundance of industry experience and real estate knowledge for his clients to draw upon. He is known for his strong negotiating, marketing,  and communication skills, which have seen him recognized as one of the top-producing real estate agents in Kelowna.  It is Mark’s uncanny ability to direct his clients to quality homes and to avoid problem homes or “money-pits” that his clients truly appreciate.
