Who is Uncle Mark on ‘Married to Real Estate’?

Uncle Mark has become an integral part of Married to Real Estate — and it's not just because of his charming personality. It’s also due to his extensive knowledge of real estate and construction. This helps back up any advice he provides to the family.

Uncle Mark has been a licensed realtor for nearly a decade, specializing in residential areas throughout Cobb, Fulton, and Gwinnett counties.

He currently works for Indigo Road Realty, which is a real estate company owned by none other than Egypt herself.

In addition to selling real estate, he credits a lot of his success to his extensive background in flipping homes. This certainly comes in handy when Mike and Egypt need someone to get their hands dirty on Married to Real Estate.

According to his profile on Indigo Road Realty, he “has also purchased, renovated, rented, and sold his own properties as an investor.”

Mike thanks Uncle Mark for keeping him and Egypt grounded amidst the show’s success.

HGTV has seen a lot of power couples over the years — Chip and Joanna, Ben and Erin Napier, and Ryan and Sarah Baeulmer. But none have been quite as beloved as Egypt Sherrod and Mike Jackson, the Atlanta-based hosts.

The couple, who met while renovating a house, have been married since 2010. They have three daughters: Simone (from Mike’s previous relationship), Kendall, and Harper.

In an interview with HGTV, Mike attributed their humble attitude of success to their marriage and their support system. “It’s a lot of communication, and we have an amazing support system,” he said.

“When I say support system I mean family: my mother; her mother; my aunt; uncle Mark, who’s in our show; cousin David. We have all hands on deck — everyone wants us to succeed. It’s amazing.”

Married to Real Estate airs on Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on HGTV.
