Combining 24 years of commercial development experience, Mark Chilcott joins our

team as a champion of a collective vision to develop a new generation of assisted

living communities. Our relationship began when his company, PlazaCorp Realty

Advisors, Inc., a commercial real estate development company based in Kalamazoo,

Michigan, retained Watercrest to provide the necessary advisory, leadership, and

management services for PlazaCorp to enter the senior living industry. Working

together, a close relationship was developed based on the mutual commitment to

honor and serve others and a shared understanding that a servant leader culture is

the key to success.


Prior to joining WATERCREST, Mark’s development consulting company, namely

Chilcott Development Services, LLC, successfully completed several flagship

economic redevelopments. For seven years, his company specialized in brownfield

redevelopment, financing, development and leadership services to developers and

local governments.


During Mark’s eleven years as Principal/Vice President of PlazaCorp Realty Advisors,

Inc., he built and led the operations team responsible for leasing, accounting, and

property and construction management. Specializing in acquisitions and development,

Mark and his team transformed PlazaCorp from a three (3) person company with

four (4) properties and thirteen (13) tenants to thirty-six (36) properties and over two

hundred and fifty (250) tenants. The team successfully fought through and endured

the deep recession that began in 2008 and emerged from this period culturally and

financially stronger. In this same period, Mark and his team even grew their holdings

by acquiring numerous distressed properties.


Mark holds a Bachelor of Science in Commercial Recreation Management/Business

Administration from Pennsylvania State University. He and his amazing wife Jan have

been married for 18 years and blessed with daughter Mariah, step-children Trent,

Tiffani and Tabrina.
