General Counsel

Mark Erickson joined Cinnaire in 2011 as an Asset Manager and moved on to become our General Legal Counsel.  

Mark’s career in real estate began as an on-site residential property manager while attending law school. After graduating from law school, he joined Centrum Management in East Lansing as an Area Property Manager and then Executive Property Manager.  

Following several years with Centrum and admission to the State Bar, Mark continued his real estate career in Detroit with nearly five years as Director of Property Management and Associate Counsel for Real Estate for the Frank’s Nursery and Craft retail chain before being recruited to be in-house counsel and property manager for a large Metro Detroit mixed use developer.  After nearly ten years with that developer, he opened his own law practice specializing in real estate management and development, which he pursued for the next nine years until the youngest of his three children was about to graduate from high school. His career then took him to Chicago where he was a real estate consultant performing feasibility and market studies for an array of real estate development projects throughout the country.
