Simply put, Wes is a professional striving to be the best Realtor in the area. Wes defines the word “BEST” by his satisfied clients, not by being the biggest. His goal is for every client to recommend him, and to use him again and again as the family Realtor!
As a Virginia native, it was over 53 years ago, John Wesley Wagner, “Wes”, one of four preacher’s kids, spent many evenings watching the spray of the welding torches of the nearby Newport News Shipbuilding and Drydock Co. as work was nearing completion on the world’s first nuclear powered aircraft carrier, the USS Enterprise. During the summertime, he and his older brother would ask the hard working shipyard workers during their lunch break for their soft drink bottles and collect as many as they could carry off on their bikes. Many relocation moves later (always around the state, except for one period near Sacramento, California) he returned to settle back on the Peninsula in the Yorktown/Williamsburg area. Even though he still occasionally picks up aluminum soft drink cans, you’ll more likely see him putting together real estate deals.
Wes loves to point out many outstanding features of the area that make it unique. “A great deal has changed and a lot has stayed the same. Continued evolving growth for the area has meant a fairly consistent, strong real estate market. Fortunately, the Southern charm and natural beauty of the area has remained intact.”
Wes is the proud and sometimes weary father of three children. His wife, Karen, is a registered nurse at a nearby school. “My wife’s patience and caring have made a difference for many kids of our ‘extended’ family and to me.” The Wagners live in Winder’s Pond in the Grafton section of York County.
Experience Matters: Over the last 35 plus years as a real estate professional, Wes has helped literally hundreds of families with their moves here. He knows the market and strives to always listen well, work hard and negotiate successfully for all his clients. People often underestimate how much money and hassle can be saved by choosing a Realtor skilled in negotiating.
Wes has two brokers licenses and he consistently ranks in the top 2%-5% by sales volume of all the Peninsula real estate agents. He is among only 5% of all the agents in the nation to have qualified to be a Certified Residential Specialist (C.R.S.) further insuring that service to his clients is knowledgeable. He has a reputation for being conscientious with a persistent yet quiet demeanor. He is a Realtor that gets results!

Earned Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) accreditation in 1996- Only 5% of agents qualify nationwide. In 2013 Wes was the top produce in the William E. Wood and Associates Newport News office.
Wes loves what he does as a real estate agent. “Because it is a people business there are few dull moments. The best part of my job is that when the day is over and we all go home I have satisfaction of knowing that I maybe had something to do with that place my customers and friends call ‘home’.” When you think of buying or selling your property anywhere in the Peninsula area, think of Wes Wagner. With the experience and the “it will be done attitude”, Wes is the ideal choice to successfully help you through your real estate transaction to reach your goals.
