New Ownership for Ford’s Colony Realty

WILLIAMSBURG, VA - Ford's Colony Realty announced today that Ford's Colony Realty is under new
ownership. Long-time Williamsburg residents Dr. David Walker and his wife Nancy Skillman Walker
purchased Ford's Colony over the summer of 2017.
The Walkers were long-time Ford's Colony residents and are excited for this opportunity to rejuvenate
the real estate company and its marketing efforts with the latest technology and best tools available to
promote the community. They plan to update all resources including websites, photography, presentation
materials, and more. By providing the team with the tools to compete in the modern, luxury lifestyle real
estate arena, their goal is to enhance the office's productivity and visibility.
"I'm excited to assemble a team to navigate the constantly changing landscape of lifestyle realty in
Williamsburg with technology and marketing tools playing a central role," says Dr. Walker.
The new ownership is not affiliated with Ford's Colony ownership or any of its investors, rather the
Walkers' interests lie in promoting the community and maintaining the value of ownership in this leading
lifestyle community.
The Walkers invested in Ford's Colony forty (40) years ago, when it was named Middle Plantation. They,
together with partners, have built over forty (40) houses in Ford's Colony and lived in 5 homes in the
neighborhood. At one time, they were the largest individual lot holders in the subdivision. They have
owned and sold over eighty (80) lots in Ford's Colony and are the largest contributors to the HOA over the
span of their ownership. They have always seen lot and home ownership in Ford's Colony as a great
investment and seek to continue that tradition and enhance their investments, along with every Ford's
Colony owner's investment, through acquisition of the real estate company.
Scott Walker, Realtorâ and Principal Broker at a leading real estate firm in Richmond, Virginia will serve
as Dr. Walker's consultant and adviser. With over 20 years of real estate experience in the area, Mr.
Walker will be a great resource for the ownership and office combined.
Dr. and Mrs. Walker are passionate about real estate and the resort lifestyle offered at Ford's Colony; they
have been promoting the lifestyle and value of Ford's Colony to friends and colleagues for years,
organically creating interest and growing the neighborhood into the strong, diverse community it is today.
Ownership of the realty company was the next logical step in their mission to promote the community.
The Walkers are long-time Williamsburg residents. Dr. Walker established his dental practice on
Richmond Road in Williamsburg in 1972 and still practices today. Nancy Skillman Walker is a third
generation Skillman and Williamsburg resident.
