Here’s Our Story:
IsaBell, a native of Mathews county, has been married to Nelson B. Horsley, Sr. for 63 years. IsaBell and Nelson worked at the Naval Weapon Station, which was a great steady job. They raised their son, Nelson Jr., and lived in Gloucester County. IsaBell and Nelson Sr. started to dabble in real estate and would buy a small lot here and there, clear it and sell it to make a small profit. IsaBell then tried her hand in the real estate business for a summer in the early 1970’s. She obtained her real estate license, and after a few years working with a local firm, she decided to open her own company in 1975. She bought an old gas station in Urbanna, and with the support of her husband and son, IsaBell was on her way to becoming a force in the real estate industry in the Middle Peninsula and the Northern Neck.
IsaBell was content having her own firm and did not have plans in expanding the firm to other areas, but with the encouragement of friends, she began to branch out. The first branch office was in Mathews on Main Street, then came Deltaville and White Stone. While real estate has taken some ups and down in the market through the decades, Horsley has always been consistent. IsaBell owns her office buildings and holds that as a staple for the stability of her company. She has always been a hard worker with innovative ideas on marketing business.
At Horsley, we are very proud of our past and look forward in what the future holds. We hold IsaBell’s values in hand and strive each day to make sure we are up to the minute in technology, real estate laws, and ethics for our clients and firm. We are dedicated in holding up the Horsley company name and making it the top real estate firm each year . . . voted the Best Real Estate Firm two years in a row by Virginia Living Magazine!
