Why Mackenzie

Born and raised in Charlottesville, Virginia, Mackenzie S. Davis is truly a “Cville” native as she represents the ninth generation of her family living in the area. During her childhood, she grew up in charming Crozet, where her family still runs the longest family-run business for the last 84 years, The Modern Barber Shop. She was also very fortunate to marry another native whose family ties are all long-time residents in the area. Her deep roots and strong connections make her a specialist of everything the Charlottesville area has to offer.

She graduated from High Point University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology. After graduating college and exploring the job market, she found her out-going personality and competitive nature was a shoo-in for a sales position.

In Mackenzie’s free-time, her and her husband enjoy touring various builder’s model homes and frequent the annual International Builders Show, to stay up to speed with what is new and upcoming in the new home industry.

What Buyers Are Saying

I had a wonderful new home buying experience with Mackenzie!

She was extremely knowledgeable of the new home designs and options that were available to us and made sure we knew every detail before making a decision. The questions that we did have for her were answered quickly and completely. Mackenzie answered my questions during the days, evenings, and weekends with a turn around time of usually 20 minutes. That is amazing in my book! Her positive personality, ability to multitask and her attention to detail made our new home buying experience hassle free. It was a pleasure and honor to have worked with Mackenzie! – Wayne C.

Mackenzie was the salesperson representing the builder for my house. Buying the house was a big step for me: it was the first house I ever bought, and I was from a foreign country. Therefore, there were tons of questions and more so concerns before I started. I was very glad that Mackenzie was very helpful to address all my questions and even made sound advice during the whole process. To my biggest satisfaction is that she shows great professionalism, from prompt response to my emails to follow-ups and always making sure everything was in order. Overall, I would say, Mackenzie, is a trustworthy, knowledgeable agent, and has great interpersonal skills. I was very nice to work with her and I would recommend her to all her future clients. – Xu W.

My husband and I were sure we wanted to build in a specific community and had our choice of three builders. We talked with each of them, but Mackenzie stood out to us with her friendly approach and helpful attitude. This was not the first home we had built, so we were familiar with the process and knew what we wanted structurally. Mackenzie was so helpful in getting us what we needed and if she didn’t know the answer, she got it for us promptly, letting us know what modifications were available if any. We had many appointments with her and were always treated professionally, her expertise also coming through in her emails. As a customer service professional for over 30 years, I am an expert at understanding the customer service world, where Mackenzie clearly soars. Had I been her manager, I would have consistently recognized her with awards and raises. Really, she’s THAT good. SHE is the reason we chose her company to build our home. I am confident she will continue to aspire as her career continues.- Kathey K.
