He has bought and sold more than 50 “flip” homes for his family company.  Patrick opened Cross Properties, Inc. in 2006 to due to the growth of his family real estate and home restoration business, and in 2014 Patrick earned his Virginia Class A Contractor’s license. His team relies heavily on referrals from past clients and friends, who have come to expect excellence!

Mary Williams, Office Manager (unlicensed) for both our Retail and Investment Divisions, has been in the lending and real estate industry in the Roanoke Valley for over 38 years. Her major role is coordinating all of our office operations, keeping all of our transactions running smoothly, and the point person for all follow-up and special services to our clients. Mary believes that when our clients are treated incredibly, they will become “Raving Fans” and refer all of their friends and family to us. Mary has one adult son and makes her home in Salem, VA.

Susan Wilkinson, our Client Care Coordinator (unlicensed), has the part-time job of making our client’s lives filled with joy, especially at the closing celebration. After our clients have gone through the contract and closing process (sometimes long and stressful), Susan’s role is to make sure everyone feels appreciated, and to follow up with our clients on a regular basis…. forever. She’s married to Patrick Wilkinson and has been involved in the family’s real estate business for over 28 years. She has raised two children, has a bachelor’s degree in Education, a master’s degree in Social Science, and in her spare time is a full-time licensed special education teacher with the City of Salem Schools.

About Cross Properties – Investment Homes

Cross Properties, Inc. provides solutions to help homeowners in The Roanoke Valley get out of sticky situations…like foreclosure, owning a burdensome property, probate, settling an estate, or divorce. Cross Properties provides cash for your home and a great selling experience, so you can continue to do the things you love. We provide a great alternative to the traditional sale to home-sellers who need to sell fast. We normally buy these homes in only 30 days, for cash, and with no repairs made by the seller. We buy at a discount because we are not charging commissions, and taking on the risk of some potentially costly unknown defects.
