Mark Batson

Owner / Designer

Wilmington native, Mark Batson, studied at UNCW. He earned his BA in History, which is the study of the past and how it relates to people. Relating to people is what the business of custom home building is all about. Mark applies lessons from his past experiences and intuitively guides his clients through the design/build process to create something special. He sees his purpose being to help families imagine how their lives could be, actualized into real environments, improving their lives through better living. Winner of multiple awards and recognition, Mark has found that cultivating long-term relationships with both clients and colleagues is the true reward.

As leader, Mark’s role is to instill a sensibility about how things should be done. He believes in having a warrior’s spirit, a servant’s heart, and a fun loving atmosphere. His promise to the client is to never compromise quality or coolness.

Mark lives in Wrightsville Beach with his family of five, where his young children keep him busy. Occasionally, he’ll get opportunities for fun, like flying, surfing, spearfishing and other watersports. Overall he wants to leave a legacy that has a positive impact on himself, his family, and his community.
