Wainwright Real Estate

Dorothy Wainwright, a pioneer in the real industry, started Wainwright Real Estate in 1951, working out of her home. This was at a time when Agents were looking for new clients to serve through door to door canvassing and from local phone books, calling clients from rotary dial desk phones and reading property data from index cards. There were no computers, no printers, no e-signatures and no smart phones. Social Media only existed though print advertising and local mixers. Oh and, these were the days of 1-page real estate contract. The median home price was in the mid $7,000’s.

In 1954, Dorothy and Bob Wainwright Sr., her husband, opened the first Wainwright Real Estate office located at 26th Street and Atlantic Avenue in Virginia Beach. Their son, Bob Wainwright II would soon follow in the family owned business in 1968 and in 1995, his son, Bob Wainwright III joined the ranks.

What makes Wainwright Real Estate so unique and so widely sought after by so many Real Estate Agents? Well, in 1988, Wainwright raised the bar and began offering Real Estate Agents what was most notably the best real estate commission in the industry and to this day they are sought out by hundreds of new Real Estate Agents, Retirees and Military Veterans looking for a 2nd or even 3rd career, Professionals from all backgrounds and even seasoned Real Estate Agents and Brokers seeking the best possible commission structure from a top tier brokerage. Today, Wainwright Real Estate, housed in a near 8000sf building located at 4098 Foxwood Drive off of South Independence in Virginia Beach, has over 400 Licensed Real Estate Agents/Brokers and is ranked, based on sales volume, among the top 3% of all Real Estate Brokerages in the Real Estate Information Network, our local Multiple Listing Service in Hampton Roads – located in the Southeastern and Coastal Region of the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Bob Wainwright III has since retired. And today, the company is managed by the President and Principle Broker, Nash Wainwright who joined Wainwright Real Estate in 2008 after serving his country in the US Military for nearly 2 decades. The Managing Broker, Faye Zinas, has been a mainstay at Wainwright Real Estate since joining in 2004.
