He worked with us on a variety of projects over 2 years setting up a cash flow analysis platform for over 600 properties in Germany with an aggregate value of over Euro 5 billion. He is a joy to work with, a consultant that puts his heart (and experience!) into delivery. I would definitely work with him again should the opportunity arise.

I had the pleasure of working with Mark while I was at Brandywine Realty Trust and we were implementing the Argus Enterprise system. We worked together for about 2 years and his depth of real estate, accounting and financial analysis expertise never ceased to amaze me. Drawing on Marks broad range of experiences and his depth of technical knowledge, we were able to automate much of what had been a tedious and manual budget process in the past. His focus on improving productivity, along with his Excel and database skills, was invaluable. In addition, his SQL skills were extremely valuable during our Argus Enterprise implementation. Mark is a true professional and we could always count on him to get the job done. I would gladly work with him again and would not hesitate to recommend him to any friend, family member or co-worker.

He has a pleasent personality which makes you very much comfortable to work with him. I wish him all the best in his career.

I have worked with Mark Leis for 13+ years in the consulting and software sector of commercial real estate. Mark is incredibly proficient in all aspects of commercial real estate analysis while at the same time being extremely competent in database architecture, structures and design. His knowledge of commercial real estate (budgeting, investing, financial analysis etc) and his fluency of database query language make him an excellent resource for developing solutions focused on data mining, process improvement and end to end data integration solutions. I have personally worked with Mark in numerous process improvement and data integration projects which took existing business cycles from weeks, sometimes months, and reduced them to days often resulting in fewer customer resources to support the process and significantly better data accuracy as additional benefits. One of Marks best assets is his ability to be several steps ahead when integrating data or designing solutions resulting in additional customer requirements being satisfied before their requests are even made exceeding customer expectations. Mark is one of the hardest working and capable individuals I have ever worked with.

Mark is a hands-on analyst with a wealth of knowledge about the commercial real-estate industry and it's transactions. He has a deep understanding of how that data is captured and the ability to mine it for connections and relationships to provide value to our customers. Mark was the go-to guy when a customer needed to integrate their custom data with our solutions. Personable, competent, and dedicated, Mark has always been a pleasure to work with.

I worked with Mark over several years, and on a number of significant projects with major real estate investors. He has an excellent understanding of the real estate sector, and of the IT and data challenges that the sector experiences. Mark is extremely thorough in the methods he uses to establish the business requirements of each client before setting out a viable solution or approach to tackle a particular project. He combines this with a great deal of practical experience and technical knowledge. Not only can he design the solution, but he also has the skills to delve into the technical aspects to solve problems as they arise. I would have no problem recommending Mark in any IT project.

I recently worked with Mark for several years (2007-2009) on several consulting projects involving Asset Management (DYNA) and his intimate knowledge of the software, importing and the databases it uses has been invaluable in expediting the successful completion of every project.

Comments of Past Colleagues at ARGUS Software



McKean Defense Group

I worked side by side with Mark for seven years, first at treeSoft then ARGUS Software. Mark was the primary "in the weeds" educator of my commercial real estate background, and his detailed data design was the basis for what is now the back-end database for ARGUS Enterprise, the next generation replacement of ARGUS DCF, DYNA and VALCAP. Mark shies away from no challenge when it comes to CRE data integration, and he has mastered the structures of most popular property management and analysis solutions available for the past 20 years. Mark was the brainchild behind the portfolio management tools used by treeSoft to manage the largest CRE databases on the planet, and he made "the impossible" happen on a regular basis with ARGUS and DYNA. At ARGUS, if there was a project than needed to unlock or integrate CRE data, Mark was the go-to resource every time. What Mark brings that so few others do is a real understanding of the CRE Financial Analysis, Projections and Property Management process. Adding this detailed background to the mix in an integration or reporting effort makes all the difference in getting the right _result_ the first time. Mark can communicate to Portfolio Managers in their language just as easily as he can work with the IT staff. I recommend him unequivocally for any CRE project.

Mark is very dedicated to the needs of our clients and will always look to go beyond what is required.

Mark is an expert systems integration specialist, with excellent knowledge of all software platforms utilized in the real estate industry. He assisted me countless times with special requests where complex macros and software code were required in creating and maintaining detailed financial projections on all types of properties (i.e. Land and Building Developments, office towers, shopping malls, multi-family, etc.). He would be an strong addition to any real estate company looking to improve their financial analysis, reporting, and asset management systems, particularly where systems integration requirements are desired.
