Supporter Spotlight: Mark Harvey
Mark Harvey, Principal Broker, Hybrid Real Estate
My association with Eugene is a decade long and I cannot now imagine living anywhere else. My reasons are those that I hear so often from others who live here—the amazing sense of community, having nature (whether that be beach, mountain, or forest) seemingly on my doorstep, the walkability of the city, and the perfect pace of life. I grew up in Wiltshire in rural England, not far from Bath and Stonehenge, and spent many days as a teenager on construction sites with my father who was a contractor. I have had a fascination with homes ever since.

We specialize in natural, organic, local, and specialty food and beverages.
