Ford’s Colony Realty in Williamsburg under new ownership


Long-time Williamsburg residents David and Nancy Walker have purchased Ford’s Colony Realty.  Walker said the couple is “in a transition period now,” with the realty firm. They plan to update Ford Colony’s marketing efforts with the latest technology including the firm’s websites, photography, presentation materials, and more.

The Walkers have owned several homes at Ford’s Colony in the past, although they currently live in Colonial Williamsburg on land inherited by Nancy Skillman Walker, a third-generation Williamsburg resident.

The Walkers invested in Ford’s Colony, a master-planned community with about 2,600 homes today, 40 years ago, when it was named Middle Plantation. They, together with partners, built more than 40 houses in the development and have lived in five homes in the neighborhood. At one time, Walker said they were the largest individual lot holders in the subdivision.

The couple’s son, Scott Walker, a broker with Precision Realty in the Richmond area, will serve as a consultant and adviser, Walker said.

This 3,000 acre gated golf community offers a superior selection of home styles and neighborhoods, a complete range of country club amenities, the privacy you desire and the Ford’s Colony reputation for excellence in everything they do.

You’ll be delighted to discover how economical the good life can be at Ford’s Colony. While our mild four season climate will go easy on your heating bills, you’ll find that Virginia’s gentle climate for taxation will go easy on your finances. You see, Virginia’s cost of living compares most favorably to America as a whole. “Kiplinger’s Personal Finance” ranks Virginia as having the 7th lowest taxes in the country.

History buffs enjoy the benefits of the Historic Triangle: Williamsburg, Jamestown, and Yorktown with free access to all local residents. Interested in higher learning? Residents over the age of 60 may audit classes for free at the second oldest college in America, William & Mary. If you enjoy volunteering your time, our residents are involved with virtually every volunteer organization in our area.

About mrwilliamsburg

I love Williamsburg !
Being “Mr. Williamsburg” and starting my web site in 2004 has been a great way for me to help people looking for homes for sale, communities and an “insider knowledge.” of the area.
Turned out I was onto something. Because I offer in-depth information and up-to-the-minute blogging, even international clients have found me. One couple, moving back to the States from France, told me that a post I wrote blog about grocery shopping in Williamsburg convinced them that Williamsburg was the place to be, and that I was the best source by far that they found on the web.
I’m happy to say that I hear similar comments from many of my clients looking for homes throughout Williamsburg and Hampton Roads.
I grew up in Virginia Beach, Va, After attending college, I worked at a number of positions including manager of a land development and construction company and business manager of a cut flower business that we grew in sales from $300,000 to $15 million (we were supplier to Whole Foods and one of the first cut flower suppliers to Costco).
In 2004, it seemed like a good time to simplify my life. I moved my family from Annapolis to Williamsburg. I went into real estate with Liz Moore and Associates, and was one of the initial agents when Liz opened her Williamsburg branch.
My sons Zach and Josh attend Lafayette High School and Hornsby Middle School and are crazy about sports and the outdoors.
I feel lucky to be living the dream, and saving two to four hours by not driving on the DC beltway every day. So, I can now spend my time with family while concentrating on learning — and sharing — information about living in Williamsburg.
In real estate, no two people or transactions are the same. Everything’s a challenge, and I’m rewarded every time in close a transaction and have the opportunity to see the smiles on clients’ faces.
