Ben Wilson

Director of Property Management

Ben got his start in property management as a summer gig while in college. After graduating from Elon University with a degree in History, he came back to Charlottesville where he started his full-time career in property management. Ben brings to the Nest team an extensive history of commercial and residential property management – both in the student and professional markets, as well as management of common interest communities. Ben balances the busy life of a property manager with golf, fishing, and spending time with his wife and three daughters.

Fun facts about me

Why property management?

I like to stay nimble and think on my feet. Not only is every day different, but seldom does your day go the way you draw it up in the morning. There are always surprises.

Where do you go to relax?

The beach - with a fishing pole. Or, the golf course.

Favorite trip?

After graduating college I went out west with two friends and lived in Big Sky Montana for the ski season.

What’s your favorite time of the day?

Bath and bedtime – my goal every day is to make it home in time for bath and bedtime.

Dog or Cat person?

Most definitely a dog person. I had that one perfect cat growing up and now, no others can compare. We have three dogs – Hucklebear, Hank & Hannah.

Favorite thing to watch (on TV or in person)?

Chicago Cubs Baseball. Go Cubs Go!
