Dean Kurushima

Staff Accountant


Dean was born and raised in Central/Southern California. Once he became part of the Melvin Mark team in 2019, he moved from Los Angeles to a new state for the very first time. While in California, Dean was an accountant for several property management companies, which helped him gain experience and a good understanding of the commercial real estate industry.

Now as a Staff Accountant, Dean is using his honed skills to track and process financial business activity for a portfolio of properties. Dean is happy to be part of the team and admires Melvin Mark’s family roots, rich, local history, and continued growth.

As a recent transplant, Dean enjoys Portland’s “big city” feel and the fact that it’s a close drive to beach cities and the great outdoors.  He also enjoys the city’s food and beer scene and is always searching for good food in the area. In his spare time, you can catch Dean watching sports, specifically rooting for Los Angeles-based teams and now the Trailblazers.
