About Us & President Bio
MacRock Real Estate was founded in 2009 by Marco Lainez.  Marco's plan was to focus on expanding his family's portfolio in markets he's identified to offer long-term stable growth yet opportunistic investments.  However, recognizing the extent of invaluable relationships he has made throughout his professional career and the intellectual capital he has garnered he decided to build a business that utilizes a "network" system ("Network Affiliation Partners").  This system offers his many clients One Point of Access that scales exponentially across the industry while still allowing him to pursue his personal investment goals.
