Get to Know Mary Mills

If you are buying or selling real estate in Hampton Roads you will want to call me first. I have been a resident of this area since 1978. I have lived in VA. Beach, Norfolk, Suffolk, and Newport News. I know the area!

My first year in real estate I was named Rookie of the Year. I take my job seriously. Each of my clients are VIP and are treated as such. Castle or Cabin, it does not matter.

I am a Navy brat and former military wife. I know the ins and outs of relocation. In my past professional career, I moved every 2 to 3 years (just like you) and understand the stress.

I am an active golfer and serve on the Board of the Executive Women & Golf Association.

I was named Canon Business Woman of the Year in 2006 for the Mid-east region. All this means to you is that I am hard working and professional.

My daughter, Lisa Nicholson has also joined my team and we can't wait to help you!  

If you choose to work with us, I promise you will be happy! Call us today.


When I started into real estate, it was a time that many realtors were getting out.  Times were hard in the housing market. As a result, I fell into the class of agents that needed to learn a lot about the houses were were now sellling; tons of short sales and foresures. So I did. Do I like this area, no, it is hard on all parties involved but it is necessary.  As a result I was determined to learn as much as I could I was one of the first to get my CDPE and my SFR.  Most told me I was nuts, but now many agents hold these certifications.

"I am an agent in Northern VA. I am also a real estate investor and Mary is my agent for the homes I sell out of my MLS area. She has sold about 6 homes for me in the last 2 years and she has been fantastic! You know she must be good if she can impress another agent/investor like me. She is knowledgeable, professional, and squared away when it comes to the administrative side of the business. I use her exclusively for all of my sales and have referred several clients to her over the years. She is exactly what you should be looking for in an agent."
Chuck Foor
"Mary worked tirelessly to find the right home. Even to the point of convincing a seller's bank to stop the foreclosure proceeding and revert to a short sale status to more quickly settle on the house."
Ronnie and Judy Saunders
"I'm writing to thank you Mary Mills, for helping my wife and I find a great home in Franklin VA! You are very knowledgeable about the process and thoroughly handled our many questions along the way. As this was a huge investment for us, we were so pleased with the excellent service that you was able to provide. Another plus is that you work late hours, which is great for people like us who work full days and need to work with a broker in the evenings and weekends. I would like you to know that I plan to recommend you and your outstanding services to all my friend's and Federal Co-employees. Mary you are the best!

"Mary MIlls was very professional, detailed in explaining the process and quick to respond to any questions posed. It was not the ideal selling situation, given the economy or personal circumstances, but Mary was able to guide us through successfully selling the home. I am very grateful that she was recommended and would recommend her to anyone in the Hampton Roads Area!"
Ralph Del Aquila
"Mary was very helpful with the purchase of this house so much that I looked for her again for another house I'll be purchasing. on a side note when the seller got rid of a washer I assumed came with the house Mary purchased another to keep me satisfied. It worked I'm her customer for life"

"Mary Mills gave us extraordinary service while we were selling my mother's condo. She learned how to deal with an international buyer and kept us posted every step of the way. I would recommend Mary to any potential buyer or seller of real estate."
Adam Brailer
Mary Mills is a phenomenal realtor. She spent countless hours with me in person and by phone. She kept me completely informed every step of the way. Mary patiently showed me over 15 houses and each house was geared towards my needs as a homeowner. She was always available, easily accessible and has a profound knowledge of the real estate industry. I would highly recommend Mary Mills as an outstanding realtor who goes to great lengths to make your home buying process efficient and pleasurable.
Melkys and Reggie Richards
We were looking into buying our first home and realized we needed professional help. Once we met Mary, we knew we were in good hands because we felt very comfortable when we left her office. She was very attentive, knowledgeable in VA loans, listened to our wants/needs and addressed any questions we had immediately; she is the epitome of what a real estate agent should be. We love our new home and the fact that we can call ourselves homeowners now. Thanks to Mary our first home buying experience is one we’ll never forget and I would recommend her services to anyone!
The Lessners
My wife had been trying the For Sale by Owner approach for the entire summer. Mary approached her with her CMA and talked to her about the current market conditions. My wife told Mary she would call her when she was ready. Mary did not bug her, and actually brought a potential buyer by while we were FSBO. We contracted with Mary at the beginning of August and in 2 weeks we have an offer and then a sale. Mary took care of getting the carpets cleaned while our family (5 kids) was on vacation. After we moved out Mary saw to it that a cleaning service came in and put the house in great form for the new buyers. We are very happy we chose Mary. She managed to sell our house in a very tough market while some of our neighbors (3 months later- are still on the market)
The Bennets
I don't know where we would have been without Mary's invaluable expertise and counsel. Being a military family arriving from overseas and not knowing the area, she took tremendous care of our family. Mary truly listened to what we were looking for in a first home and helped make the whole process less stressful. Thank you for everything, Mary!
Allison and Greg Lambert
Mary was awesome! Moving from Texas to Virginia is hard enough and finding a house that met our large family’s needs was even harder. Mary was always there to answer questions and never gave up hope that we would find the perfect house. She never once showed us a house out of our price range; which is certainly not the norm in real estate. She always kept our best interests in mind and finally after looking at 28 houses in 2 days, we found it! We definitely recommend Mary to anyone who wants awesome, friendly, and from the heart service. Thanks Mary

I can say without reservation that Mary is the hardest working and most dedicated real estate agent I have ever had. She remained in constant communication throughout the process and handled many of the details I was expected to handle when dealing with other agents in the past. Mary launched a massive marketing campaign which I attribute to selling my house in only four months. I highly recommend her whether you are buying or selling your home.
Mark Hasson
Mary was great! I am retired Navy and a Civilian stationed on a ship in Iraq. Mary took care of everything for me. Form making sure that once the tenants left the property, to getting carpets cleaned to scheduling and handling all repairs to complete the sales process. We really put Mary to work and while she was doing all of this for us, she was in great pain waiting for a hip replacement operation. On the day after surgery, she actually took a call from the other agent, who was not as organized as Mary, and got her problem taken care of from the hospital bed. Could you ask for any better service that that?
Keith Newstead
Mary was an absolute gem to work with. Not only was she very knowledgeable about the area, but after looking at a few houses and finding out what I was looking for, helped me to find the perfect house. Never once did she force me to see houses I wouldn't like or try to push properties on me that were being sold by her company. She always took what I wanted in a house and searched tirelessly for them. She was also very accommodating to my schedule, as it can be very unusual. Beyond that though, Mary definitely knows her way around the market and looked for the best deal and the best value. She walked me through the process and I had very easy time closing on my property. If I ever buy another house in the area, she will absolutely be my first choice and I will definitely recommend her to everyone I know. If you have never purchased a house before and are looking to make that first step, Mary should be the first number you reach for.
James and Gretchen Renlund
Mary Mills is the consummate professional! Mary knows the intricacies of working with all sorts of people. Mary is an expert communicator! Mary is a master negotiator! Mary is honest and won’t let you get in over your head or taken advantage of in any deal. Mary is not a yes – (wo)man, If you need to know something, she will tell you the truth. Mary knows both sides of any real estate deal! Mary was available 24/7 for any questions/concerns either by us or our buyers. Mary will go farther than the extra mile to make your deal go well. Mary sold our house in 3DAYS for more than our appraised value! We are a career Navy family and we would recommend Mary to anyone and everyone and in fact we already have! We wish we could bring Mary with us to all the places we need to buy and sell houses because she has been the very best real estate agent we have ever used in 20+ years!

Mary was extremely helpful. We were indecisive buyers. Our lives were up in the air as recent newlyweds. The Army (my wife and I are both active duty) received orders to two different bases. Mary was very patient and understanding. In the end I had to select the home without the assistance of my wife. We ended up with new construction (and long distance contracting). Mary handled all the details for us and even went to bat for me when the home builder did not deliver my keys at closing. She is wonderful and I would highly recommend her to anyone. Especially for my fellow soldiers.
