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. He then 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 appreciating 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 at Sotheby's International Realty, Batson is also the owner & CEO of the national award-winning design + build firm, Tongue & Groove. In the spring of 2021, his firm was awarded the title of "National Custom Home Builder of the Year" by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) - The most prestigious title a design-build firm can receive in the United States of America. Homes that his firm has designed and built have shattered MLS sales records year over 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 ensures his clients will receive comprehensive advice and guidance, whether buying, selling, building, or renovating.
