W.J. Vakos & Company
William J. Vakos, III (Bill) is the Senior Vice President of W.J. Vakos & Company, a full-service real estate development company located in Spotsylvania County, Virginia. Bill is also the Team Leader of some of the current projects of W.J. Vakos & Company. Like in so many family businesses, Bill spent his youth working for the company in whatever role was required. After graduation from Old Dominion University, where he completed his bachelor’s degree in business administration, Bill returned to the family business working in marketing, sales and leasing. In the early 2000’s the company began developing two of its premier projects, Southpoint and Spotsylvania Courthouse Village. Under Bill’s Team Leadership, these communities today total nearly 800 acres of “true” mixed-use, bringing thousands of jobs to Spotsylvania and greatly expanding the county’s tax base. You can also find Bill leading our Commercial Brokerage and Property Management firm, Vakos Real Estate Services, which manages most of the properties day to day operations.
Bill is also active in his community where he serves on the Board of Directors for Virginia Partners Bank, as a Deacon and Chairman of the Stewardship Committee at Spotswood Baptist Church. Bill and his wife Tricia are proud parents of son Collin, a Vakos Companies Project Manager and daughter Grace, a nurse at Duke Medical.
On any typical work day, you may find Bill enjoying what he loves to do, working with his father, Bill Vakos Jr., and his son, Collin at their Spotsylvania offices.
