Mark Lively



Mr. Lively is a Director in the Capital Markets Group of Cushman & Wakefield, where he works alongside Brendan Maddigan, Executive Managing Director, focusing on investment sales in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg and Greenpoint neighborhoods. To date, he has handled over 200 properties totaling over $750 million. Mr. Lively spent over 12 years at Massey Knakal Realty Services, which was acquired by Cushman & Wakefield on December 31, 2014.

Mr. Lively graduated from the University of Richmond in Richmond, Virginia where he earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Economics. After school he immediately moved to New York City and began working in the Manhattan market specializing in residential rentals for the company Bond New York. Although he was in a new field in a new city, Mr. Lively excelled and completed approximately 20 transactions in his first year. Mr. Lively worked diligently to familiarize himself with his new market. After succeeding in one area of the real estate market, he decided to cross the East River and not only try another market but also another sector of real estate commercial sales. In late 2002, Massey Knakal opened its original Brooklyn office in Bay Ridge and Mr. Lively was the first broker hired by the firm. He was living in Williamsburg at the time and was intrigued by the dramatic changes in that market, so he decided to specialize in that area of Brooklyn.
