Mark attended the University of North Dakota on a swimming scholarship and graduated with degrees in Political Science and Sociology. Mark and Kate raised their son, Mitchell, in Sunriver, who loves coming home to visit his family, including his dog, Beck, and cat, Jack.
The Halvorsen family moved to Sunriver for many reasons. From the people of Central Oregon that Mark believes are a pleasure to work with to enjoying the outdoors, including biking, water and snow skiing and walking their dogs along the Deschutes River, Mark and his family enjoy the climate and outdoor activities all year long in Sunriver. Mark loves that Sunriver caters to families and family values. Sunriver encourages people to enjoy the outdoors and share those moments with family and friends at the end of the day.
