Mark D. Umemoto, CPA, MST


Mark Umemoto - Sobul, Primes & Schenkel

Mark Umemoto, Tax Principal, has been assisting SPS clients since 2007 and has honed a deep understanding of tax consequences within the real estate market.


Mark sees this niche as an area where he can quantifiably help. “The tax code is advantageous for the real estate industry, benefiting those who build or own property,” he explains.


Mark consults and assists all types of real estate stakeholders, from owners of multi-family residential units to hotels. Just ask him about advanced financing methods, bank and other lending reporting requirements, multi-state issues, multi-generational tax planning, and potentially thorny partnership tax issues.


An avid fan of constantly improving his work/life balance, Mark, when not spending time with his family in West Los Angeles, continues his love of sports, especially baseball.


Mark has been following the Los Angeles Dodgers since he was a boy, and still enjoys attending games at Dodger Stadium, as well as playing the game (first base or catcher).


Mark also freely admits that he’s also relishing the new-found success of the NBA’s Los Angeles Clippers.
