Born and educated in Wilmington, Mark Batson has considerable roots tied to the area. After growing up in Carolina Beach, Mark decided to pursue a BA in History at UNCW. It was then that he turned his “study of people and the past” into a passion for bringing people and families together.
Mark believes, quite simply, that there is nothing more important than spending time with those you love. Finding a sense of place and being able to appreciate time together in a functionally beautiful environment is what gives his own life meaning.
Specializing in waterfront properties, including the communities of Landfall, Figure Eight, and Wrightsville Beach, his clientele includes current and former CEOs and families from major metropolitan markets in North Carolina and the Northeast.
In addition to acting as an agent with Landmark Sotheby’s International Realty, Mark is also the owner of the national award-winning design plus build firm, Tongue & Groove. Homes that his firm has designed and built have shattered MLS sales records year after year, specifically in 2017 and 2018 with the highest ever residential property sales in New Hanover County.
Today, Mark resides in Wrightsville Beach with his family of five. His extensive experience in real estate, design, and local knowledge ensure his clients will receive comprehensive advice and guidance, whether buying, selling, building, or renovating.
