Columbia North Business Network (CNBN) is locally owned and operated by Mark Krowiak, servicing the region of Northwest Oregon and Southwest Washington.  Mark's personal goal of becoming self-employed started with CNBN.  He decided to leave the corporate world behind him and start a business where he could apply all of his business experience in helping others with their own businesses.

In addition to being a business broker, Mark is also an Oregon state licensed real estate agent.  He is able to help sell property that is involved in a business sale transaction but can also help you with a residential listing.
