Select Properties of Virginia

A Heritage of Serving Virginians and New Virginians for over Fifty Years

In 1954, the predecessor company of Select Properties was founded in Richmond, Virginia. The original two partners grew their business and eventually took different future directions to success as they went their own ways. One of the partners had a vision of combining residential and commercial development departments under one roof. That company eventually became Virginia Landmark, growing from a handful of agents to over 65 brokers and support staff by the 1990's.
Some of their projects included the development and sales of the Chalet Condominiums, Mount Vernon Apartments (and subsequent condo conversion) and helping Wheat First Securities find and build their downtown corporate headquarters among many other Richmond area developments.
In 1994, Virginia Landmark opened an office in Irvington Virginia, headed by John Dorsey and his son Doug, to serve the Chesapeake Bay region and remains one of the leading real estate companies in the area. While the Richmond office of Virginia Landmark was sold in the late 90's, the Irvington office remained a separate firm, changing its name to Select Properties of Virginia. In 2007, Select opened an office at Grove and Libby Avenues to bring their real estate expertise to the many home buyers and sellers in Metro Richmond.
Today, the same values, attention to detail, commitment to community and respect for clients and agents alike remain a part of our company much as it did over 50 years ago.
