A third generation Tittabawassee Township, Michigan builder is carrying on his family's tradition with residential and commercial construction practices. In 1978, Mark joined with his father Bob Reisinger and became a third-generation builder working in the Tri-Cities area. Mark's grandfather was the first builder in the family, his business was started in the late 1940’s. After his passing in 1952, Bob continued the business and to this day there has always been a construction business under the Reisinger name. After Bob retired in February of 1981, Mark took the steps to start his own business under the name of Mark Reisinger, Builder.
Mark is a local Freeland boy, graduating with the class of 67. Then it was on to the local community college in the tri-cities area, Delta College. After two years Mark started driving to Mt. Pleasant to attend a four-year university. In 1972 Mark earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management from Central Michigan University.
Out of college, Mark worked as part of the management staff of the Wickes Lumber Company. After about nine years, Mark left Wickes and moved the family to Wisconsin to try his hand at sales, and traveled in five states as a manufacturer’s representative. Then, as fate would have it, Mark moved the family back to Freeland, Michigan and the rest is now history. Mark and Shelia have now lived in Freeland for almost 30 years, and serving hundreds of satisfied customers has provided a wealth of enjoyment and rewards.
At the present, most of the work is performed in the Tri-Cities area, and generally within a 20-mile radius of his home base. The thrust of the work preformed by the company today is remodeling, and it is in both the commercial and residential area. Commercial work generally includes office remodeling, moving or changing walls, suspended ceiling work, counter top or coffee-break area work, door repairs or replacement and other misc. carpentry work.
Residential work usually involves additions, garages, pole barns, basement remodeling, kitchen updates, bathroom changes, as well as roof replacement, siding and soffit changes, and the list goes on.
Mark and his wife Shelia have remodeled and old farmstead home that was built around 1924, and today he has an office in his home, and he uses the original buildings as the base for his construction business.
Mark and Shelia have two adult daughters, Carrie and Terra, neither of which live at home. The couple enjoys traveling, and with two girls living out of the area, this gives them just one more reason to leave for a visit. Mark's hobbies are many, but hunting for deer seems to be his greatest passion. This venture has taken him to three of the states out west to hunt Mule Deer and Elk.
