Mark Merhige

Associate Broker

Mark R. Merhige was born and raised in Richmond, Virginia and attended the Collegiate School, Randolph-Macon College & VCU. He brings more than 35 years of specialized real estate experience as a founder, principal, manager and consultant across numerous organizations.

Mark is a pioneer of RVA’s urban redevelopment, forming the pre-cursor to Shockoe Properties in 1986 and creating some of the first warehouse lofts in downtown Richmond – the majority of which are in the Shockoe Slip Historic District. He has since been involved in the development of over $70 million of mixed use and apartment projects and continues to own and manage many of these properties which include apartments, restaurants, retail and
commercial space.

He loves spending time with his wife, Laura, their four children, Sayre, Mark, Jr, Mariah, and Alex. When he’s not toiling away behind a desk, you can find him back home on the farm communing with his cow and horse brethren.
