MarketInk: Local Realtors Picks Former Marine Officer to Direct Public Affairs

Mark Bretz

The Greater San Diego Association of Realtors has named former U.S. Marine officer Mark Bretz as director of public and political affairs.

SDAR said Bretz, an expert in political, environmental and policy initiatives, will be involved in influencing public policy and awareness among realtor members as a liaison among SDAR, its membership and the community.

In addition, the association said Bretz will build partnerships with industry leaders to build coalitions for SDAR’s positions on real estate laws and regulations and educate members on the importance of political activism and financial support to promote public policy affecting local, state and national real estate issues.

Bretz was previously an adjutant officer in the U.S. Marine Corps with the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing in San Diego. He joined the Marines in 2018 after serving for five years as director of communications and government affairs for the Cook County’s Assessor Office in Chicago.

He also spent five years (2008-2013) as a legislative aide in the Illinois House of Representative and four years (2008-2012) as a campaign manager and field director for the Democratic Party of Illinois. He graduated in 2007 from the University of Missouri-Columbia with a bachelor’s degree in political science.
