John brings years of coastal construction and land development experience to the Mark Batson Group. Born and raised in Carolina Beach, he is intricately familiar with the Cape Fear Coast, its history, rarities, and, more importantly, the area's distinctiveness. He should be – his family has been in New Hanover County since the 1740s!
Committed to raising the bar when it comes to outstanding personalized service, John is dedicated to his clients' success and creating the best possible experience along the way. His dedication and work ethic is second to none and inspiring to others. His clients are his number one priority. Batson believes that preparation is vital in doing things the right way the first time, treating others as he wants to be treated, and focusing on the positive things in life.
Most of his experience is in the regulatory side of construction, land development, and the politics associated with them. He works very closely with property owners, builders, developers, and local elected leaders. He has also spent almost 20 years giving back to the community through volunteer firefighting and leading a local nonprofit organization for several years.
John loves the outdoors, and when he isn't on a jobsite or with his family, you'll usually find him on the water somewhere running his fishing business or working on a boat project. He always has a good book on the pacific theater of World War II, Civil War, or about Pirates within hand's reach.
Specializing in waterfront properties, including the communities of Landfall, Figure Eight, and Wrightsville Beach; his clientele include current and former CEO's and families from major metropolitan markets in North Carolina and the Northeast.Contact Us
