Lory Markham

Associate Broker

Born and raised on a Virginia farm just outside the City of Richmond, Lory Markham has always been fascinated by settlement patterns and how urban growth happens. Her professional history, market knowledge, and passion for making places better equip her to work toward the continued growth of Richmond.

Lory graduated summa cum laude from Hollins University and earned her MA in Urban and Environmental Planning at the University of Virginia’s School of Architecture. After two years at the Richmond Regional Planning District Commission, she continued her public service at the City of Richmond. As Principal Planner for the City of Richmond, Lory served as Secretary to the city’s Planning Commission and managed the review of all development projects in the City that needed special approval. Her contributions to development in the City were recognized in her selection as a “Top 40 Under 40” by Style Weekly.

After over a decade of experience in with the City of Richmond, Lory started a planning consulting company, Markham Planning, and joined One South Commercial as a commercial agent. Her extensive knowledge of the Richmond market, zoning and development review process, historic tax credits, and neighborhood development has made her a prominent figure in the Richmond real estate market. And her focus remains in making places better and maximizing their potential.

TESTIMONIALS

What Our Clients Say

We recently sold two buildings, one a 16,000 sq ft. theatre in Manchester and later a turn of the century residence in Church Hill with the outstanding services of Lory Markham. She dealt with the Byzantine issues arising from the city of Richmond like a sage wizard. But most of all, she listened patiently and then ensured our objectives.

Robert Petres

We have worked with many commercial agents over the years, but Ken Campbell, Tom Rosman, Ryan Rilee, Ann Schweitzer Riley and Lory Markham at One South Commercial are among the most collaborative, creative, and personable agents in the area. We have worked on many deals together, buying, selling and leasing many types of commercial properties, and they have always taken the long view, looking out for our interests in a way that feels like a true partnership. We have always been pleased with the outcome.
