Mark Wilson

Principal Broker/Realtor/Owner

I was born and raised in the Mechanicsville area and currently live in Hanover County. My past occupational experiences have varied from general construction, to owner of a landscaping company and an IT Professional/Manager.

I am here to meet with you to discuss your home needs and help out any way I can. I know the Central Virginia area very well and more specifically, Hanover, Henrico, and King William. I also have lots of experience with veterans and first time home-buyers. I work closely with a team of agents, lenders and builders to help you find that perfect home! When I am not selling real estate I enjoy spending time with my wife Crystal, daughter Lexi and son Lane. We enjoy boating, hiking and being outdoors! Cell:  804-304-8028 Fax:  866-860-0991
