• “I am not in the real estate business, I am the marketing business -- marketing homes and people.”

He talks, walks and executes like a successful CEO. Mark A. McLaughlin is Chief Executive Officer at Pacific Union International. McLaughlin acquired Pacific Union in August 2009.

Pacific Union was ranked as the ninth-largest brokerage in the U.S. with 2014 sales volume of $6.75 billion. The luxury brokerage leads the Bay Area in residential real estate transactions in the sales-over-$3-million category. Over the past three years, Pacific Union has grown revenue by 158 percent.

The brokerage is also unusual in that title company giant Fidelity National Financial has a majority stake in Pacific Union International.
