Red Bow Realty 

We specialize in helping people buy or sell their homes. Buying or selling a house is one of the biggest financial decisions you’ll ever make. With our experience and passion for real estate, we will guide you through the entire process and make it as easy and smooth as possible.

“Home ownership is a gift you give to yourself”. Managing Broker Leah Mark had a vision in 2014 to create a company that truly believes in that. Red Bow started out as an investment company, then in 2018 she transitioned it into a full service real estate brokerage.

Since 2018 we have grown to 10 agents. We believe that a smaller agency can give you individualized attention. We choose quality over quantity. Not trying to sell as many houses as possible, but giving each client one-on-one focus and attention to help them accomplish their real estate goals! We work as a team to make sure every need is met. Our goal is to build lasting relationships with satisfied clients, because that is where our passion is!

Our company was born and raised in Michiana with the intention of truly serving our community and helping our neighbors navigate the real estate process.
Our community voted Leah Mark as Michiana’s #1 Realtor by South Bend Tribune’s Readers Choice! Red Bow Realty was voted as the #2 Top Real Estate Brokerage as well! Leah Mark is also in the top 1% of Real Estate Agents nationwide and is regularly recognized in the top 20% of agents on Google!

  • Leah Mark
    Leah MarkManaging BrokerAfter growing up in Mishawaka and graduating from Indiana University Bloomington, I returned home in 2009 and began a sales career in the RV industry. Being surrounded by so many entrepreneurs and selling to so many family owned businesses ignited my passion to create my own company. Starting and building Red Bow Investments has been a life dream and passion. I have over 18 years of experience in the service industry, so I am no stranger to hard work and long hours. In October of 2014, I earned my Real Estate Broker’s license so that I may assist in selling our Red Bow homes. Due to the wonderful success on the brokerage side, I opened Red Bow Realty January 1st, 2018, to help buyers and sellers through real estate transactions, while making the process as easy and as much fun as possible! Exceeding customer expectations has been ingrained in who I am. Being able to connect on a personal level with sellers and buyers while improving communities is an extremely rewarding experience and a true joy. Building a long-term relationship with our customers and sharing in their experiences is our daily goal. Contact me today for a private showing of one of our newly renovated properties!!

    Although I was not born and raised in this area, I bring with me 20+ years of various types of real estate experience. When settling into this area several years ago, it was important to me to choose a company that shared my strong ethics and commitment to the most important part of my business: my clients. Red Bow Realty made this an easy choice.

    I seek a smooth transition for both my home buyers and sellers from beginning to end.  The relationships I have cultivated through these transactions remind me why I have chosen this path. Though each one may be vastly different in many aspects, the end result is what really matters. I look forward to each and every person, each and every unique situation, and to each successful ending.

I started my sales career in residential roofing and am now transitioning to real estate. Being coached by one of America’s top 1% real estate agents, in addition to my high level of commitment to real estate education, will provide me the necessary tools to make this process smooth and easy for you! My attention to detail, creativity, and enthusiasm is perfect for matching each client’s desires and for helping grow Red Bow Realty. I will go above and beyond to make sure each client has the best experience possible.

    I am proud to serve as a realtor who specializes in representing both buyers and sellers in the Greater Northern Indiana area. As a lifelong resident of this area, I was born and raised in South Bend, have attended public school in the community (proud John Adams High School graduate), and have raised my family here as well. After receiving my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education, I went on to earn a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction as well as an Administration Certification from Andrews University. My expertise spans over 30 years in education as a Teacher, Principal and District Administrator and now as a Licensed Realtor; this has awarded me the opportunity to combine my passion for helping others receive a quality education, which in turn provides the tools to build wealth through homeownership that I believe is a pillar for strong sustainable communities. From the first time you meet me, you will feel at ease with my professional and personable working style. I am confident in my ability to represent your best interests in any real estate transaction. As a client, you will benefit from my in-depth knowledge of the local market and my “people-first” approach to real estate, whether you are navigating the first-time home buying process or searching for your dream home in the luxury market. I look forward to serving you in any of your real estate needs.

    Choosing the right real estate agent is the first big decision of the home buying or selling process you will make. As your agent, I will help you make informed decisions on pricing and negotiations with your best interests in mind. The path to closing for buying or selling a home can have many turns and ups and downs. As your agent, I will guide you on that path and be your support through the entire process. I hope we will work together soon. Happy house hunting!
