Lowe Enterprises Real Estate Group’s Washington D.C. Metro operations. He will
oversee all commercial and multifamily activities in the Washington D.C. Metro

“Mark has made a tremendous contribution to the Washington D.C. team, first

operating business and served as program and account manager for major clients
including Verizon, Fannie Mae, George Washington University, ExxonMobil,
American Red Cross and Northrop Grumman. He earned his B.A. from the
University of Virginia. Rivers is a resident of Washington, D.C.

Lowe Enterprises established its Washington D.C. area office in 1980, and has
been an active investor and developer of commercial real estate throughout the
