"Our experience with RVA Realty has been great. Since we began our house search, Mark has been
very helpful, patient and supportive. He has given us good advice, good suggestions and is intuitive to our wants and needs in finding a location and building a house.  We are very happy to be working with him."

"Mark Wilson made my home buying experience easy. Being a first time home buyer, his experience guided me to make a beneficial financial decision. He covered the life expectancy of many big ticket replacement items and their roundabout costs such as HVAC systems, Water Heater, and Roofs. During an inspection prior to purchase, the inspector noticed that the roof was going bad. Mark made the negotiations through the whole process seamless and I got a new roof out of the deal. I couldn't be more thankful for his professionalism."

Ben Doornink



"Chris is hands down the hardest working realtor I have ever met. He will always go above and beyond to make the buying or selling process easy! I have a laundry list of all the things he has done for my family to help with the sale of our home. If you want to work with the best, he's your guy."

Ethel Rhodes



"We bought a HUD property and RVA Realty assisted us through the confusing maze of HUD regulations. The process was very smooth and we are delighted with our find. We found the property online, sent a request to Chris and viewed it within hours. Our bid was accepted by HUD (thanks to Jennifer working online until 10:00 pm answering all the government's questions!) It's been a fun experience and we felt well attended to by our realtor and staff. I feel like we've made new friends."

Hi Chris, "I'm sorry I didn't get the chance to catch up with you again after the sale went through, but I wanted to take a moment to thank you for all the hard work and extra effort you put in to help me get the condo ready, listed and sold.  I especially appreciate you using your own free time to perform the repairs that needed to be completed before the sale could go through.  That really showed why you have been so successful as a Realtor.  Best of luck to you as you continue on in your career.  I hope things continue to go well and thanks so much again for your help." Best Wishes,

John Gardner

"Nothing but an excellent review for Mark and the whole RVA team.  We were always able to arrange for home visits quickly, were given good access and search tools to the MLS, and Mark went above and beyond to get us deeper info on properties. We also were grateful that he had a good knowledge of home building and structure. He understood what we wanted and did a great job behind the scenes during the purchase process. We were updated and checked in with regularly, and we felt super comfortable and trusting of him and the team."

Response from owners when we showed their home!



Hi Mark! "You showed our home Sunday, February 19, and we just wanted to thank you for 1 - leaving your card and 2-giving feedback after the showing.  It might seem like a small thing, but we've sold many houses and have prepared for many showings... and honestly, the differences between the run-of-the-mill agents, and the classy ones REALLY stick out.  What you're doing makes a difference!  Stay Classy!" Sincerely,  

Wesley Haynes



Mark, "I want to thank you, Chris, and RVA Realty for doing an outstanding job in my purchase of 1802 Aisquith. Chris is a best in class operator, and was a pleasure to work with. During the process he was very responsive, personable, thoughtful, and great at executing on time. I highly recommend him for anyone looking to purchase a home. I think he is the type of employee/partner great firms are built on. Again, thank you, Chris, and RVA Realty for being great at your jobs."   "Very best..."

Andrew and Breanne Wales



"Mark was an excellent realtor for us.  He was always willing to answer our questions and spent a great deal of time explaining the home buying and mortgage process to us.  He was diligent to ensure that the mortgage process was going smoothly, communicating with both us and our mortgage agent.  He ensured that all of the repairs to the house were completed in a timely manner.  We also greatly appreciated his help in guiding us with various updates that we would like to make to our house, and was able to provide contact information for contractors."

Rudy and Tina Inman

Justin and Lauren Coghill



"When I initially came in to contact with Mark it was in the very early stages of our decision to purchase a home. We were expecting our first child so it was very important that we found the perfect home to start our family in. Mark was there every step of the way and was always willing to answer questions with enthusiasm and honesty. Mark is not only very passionate and knowledgeable about real estate but also very personable. On closing day for our house it felt like we were working with a friend rather than just a real estate agent. I highly recommend Mark's services to anyone looking to buy or sell a home and we will be seeking his services when the time comes in the future."  November 2016

Russell and Latalie Gholson



"When we decided it was time to start searching for homes, Mark was there every step of the way.  If and when we had questions (which we did) that needed answers he promptly responded and made sure we understood. We thought it would take a few months before we found the right home, but it happened quick and we closed about 5 weeks after putting in our offer. He's very passionate about what he does and when the time comes we will work with Mark again.  Thanks!"

William Roe



"I highly recommend Mark. This was our first home purchase and Mark helped and guided us every step of the way. He knows the area and gave us good recommendations to consider. He helped us understand the whole process and was always there if we had a question. Then on top of that he was also around after the sell to follow up and check in. He followed up with us to see how the move in was going and helped us with a couple of move in things.  My wife and I highly recommend Mark to find your prefect home."

Sherri Bryant



"I can't remember how I got Mark's name but I know we were looking for a "Foreclosure" to purchase in a specific area, with limited funds to fix up. Mark was probably the most patient realtor I have met. We looked at dumps, we looked at houses that were a little out of reach but placed offers anyway. We did this for months. He would travel from the other side of town to open the door and we both said "NOPE", close up and go home. I am sure he thought we were jerking his chain and this lady ain't never gonna buy a house. BUT it all paid off in the end. We found the exact house in the exact price range. He went the extra mile with us. If one route didn't work out, he explained how we can try a different one until at last, what seemed was so out of reach, became realty. He never gave up nor did we. He is very honest and really gets to know you and makes you feel like you are family and or friends. At least I feel that way. I would recommend Mark to anyone who needs the real deal, not someone who is looking for just a paycheck. Thanks Mark and we will see you soon."

William McCoy



"Mr. Wilson is a fantastic agent. He is extremely professional and knows the real estate business forward and backward. He will work for you and is great at following up with your requests, working to get your loan approved, and treating you with fairness and honesty. He is highly recommended and is a great person."

Dean Stacy



"Mark was referred to us by Veterans United home loans.  We were contacted right away by Mark who found us a property in the same school district in record time.  He negotiated our transaction with the sellers agent, reviewed all reports and inspections and got us into our NEW home with time to spare as our time was running out with our lease.  The home was perfect for us and we wish to thank Mark for all his hard work. If you want an expert to take care of you and your family and a no worries transaction, I highly recommend Mark!  Very professional and a great communicator." The Stacy Family

Jennifer and Eric Webb



"Mark is a fantastic realtor who knows Richmond, Virginia! He helped walk us through every step of the home-buying process in a way that was easy to understand. He connected us with the right people along the way to make it a simple process. He took his time to really listen to what we wanted and sent us possible homes in our target area every day. He was very easy to work with and helped us find our home. I would recommend Mark to anyone looking at selling or purchasing a home in the RVA area."

Cheryl Sheets



"Mark truly found us our dream home! He had generated us a daily listing email prior to our moving here. It was on the list but we for one reason decided not to look at it. After a morning of frustrating options, and looking at things that just did not add up, we stopped for lunch. Mark took the time to go over some listings with us and we decided to give this house a try. Fell in love at first sight! Could not be happier and Mark is the reason we are here in this new home!"

Eric Strausbaugh



"My family was searching for a new home to fit all of our needs for several months. We found a home online that we were interested in and wanted to take a look, but since it was a holiday weekend we thought we would have to wait a few days. A voicemail was left and within a few hours Mark returned our call and was eager to meet with us - the same day! Our experience with Mark throughout purchasing our home and even afterward has been the same! Mark is eager, will return your phone calls/emails within a few hours and also provides you with more than enough information to make a sound decisions. We have been so impressed with his business manner, knowledge and experience that we decided to have him sell our old house! He works and lives by his tag slogan!"

Matthew Fuchs

Mark is a 'shake your hand tell it like it is' person. He is always punctual, demonstrates great attention to your needs and will work on your priorities with a high degree of organization and promptness. Mark always takes the time to ask the right questions in order to proceed the direction that is right for you. He is well refined, dependable and represents his company well."

Ron Buchanan



"I asked some friends to recommend a local realtor to help me find and purchase a second home in the Richmond, VA, area. Their recommendation was Mark Wilson, and his name was some of the best information I ever received from those folks. Because I do not live near Richmond, I provided Mark an email message outlining the types of properties in which I was interested, a price range I was willing to spend, and the general timeframe when I planned to make this purchase. Because I work some distance from Richmond, I was not readily available to view properties on a whim, but my first email also identified several properties I had seen on one of those internet property search sites. I also mentioned an upcoming date in late August when I would be in the area on business and had some time after my appointment when I would be available to view any of these properties to which we could gain access. Mark was most accommodating and arranged for us to view seven properties on the day after my business meeting. We met early at the first site, talked briefly again about my interests and plans. We used that first day's tour essentially to get to know each other and to firm up my specific desires. From late-August through October, Mark made sure I was emailed daily the current MLS listings that met my criteria, and I would respond when interested with upcoming dates when I would be in town. Mark was always accommodating to my limited and sometimes last-minute-availability, even offering to have others in his office assist if he could not. As we toured properties, we would discuss merits and flaws, possible renovations and expenses, and any issues that might cause concern if purchased. Anytime I had a question about any serious property, he either had the answer at his command or would work with selling agents to find the information I wanted. As our search narrowed down to the final three properties, he carefully listened to my debate of strengths and weaknesses of each and provided sound advice that reflected my own concerns. During the weeks preceding the closing, he assisted in working with local offices and sources to expedite the closing and provided contact information for utilities and offices with which I had to communicate. I have had opportunities over the years to work with many real estate agents, but Mark, by far, provided the best experience I have ever had. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a buyers agent."

Paige Randolph



"Mark was an awesome Realtor! He was extremely patient with me and understood how picky I was about the house I had in mind! He is very helpful with the loan process and explaining everything in full detail until you understand it completely! He is very fast at e-mailing and/or calling you back too. He treats people as if they are family. I have and will recommend him to anyone looking for a home or trying to sell their home!"

Mike & Sonja Allgood



"Mark helped us in our new home purchase/construction and throughout the entire process, he was incredibly professional and worked hard to represent us when dealing with the builder. Communication was excellent, and he kept us constantly updated on the progress of our new home. We had some issues with the builder and Mark more than went the extra mile to make sure that things were done correctly. Excellent customer service, thank you!"

Lisa Adams



"We had a beautiful home with a not so desirable lot. There were others in our neighborhood who had their houses on the market a year or more. Mark and his team effectively and aggressively strategically marketed our home and successfully sold it in approximately 90 days! I cannot say enough how much we appreciate the attention to detail, being kept informed along the way and the personable experience! Thanks so much!"

Robbie & Tara Pillis



"We were looking to move closer to town and Mark helped us get top dollar for our house. It sold so quick it left us with another problem finding somewhere to live. He gave us his full attention to us in finding a new house that was right for us."

Andrea Swanson



"Mark has been the most helpful realtor I have ever dealt with. He helped my mother sell her home, a business with property attached and another home which she was involved in. These were not easy sells. Since my mother passed, I am currently using him to sell a river property in Gloucester Co. Va. I would trust no one else with this venture. Mark is very professional and knowledgeable. He goes that extra mile that is so hard to find these days."

Stuart Harris



"Mark was great and was very helpful! Will use again and I have referred him to several friends and family. I was a first time home buyer using a VA loan and he explained every step of the way and made it so easy and simple!"

Marisse Hammer



"Mark is a true professional and it was a pleasure working with him to close the deal on my house. Buying a bank-owned property is a complex process and he was very responsive to all of my questions and needs. Additionally, his follow up on all action items during my search for the right house and throughout the buying process was commendable. I highly recommend Mark Wilson as the agent to guide you through all your real estate needs."
