Markus joined Owens Estate and Wealth Strategies Group as a Branch Associate where he assists our team in the development of business relationships throughout Northern California. His 24-year banking career brings knowledge of the internal workings of both small and large banks. Most recently he was Vice President of Commercial Lending for a local bank in Nevada County. His community contacts run deep in nearly every sector of the economy.
Markus graduated from California State University, Sacramento with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Liberal Studies and a Minor in Math and Science. Born in Mt. Shasta, Markus moved to Nevada County at a young age. His commitment to Nevada County runs deep as his immediate family lives here and he loves the people of this community.
In his spare time, you will likely see Markus with his children, enjoying diverse activities as each of them have unique interests. They enjoy playing sports, taking a trip to the beach to surf or boogie board, and the local rivers and lakes when the sun is shining. Markus is actively involved in his church and volunteering for several local non-profits in Nevada County as well.
