About Wills Companies

In 1992, brothers, Tim and Trey Wills formed Wills Companies, a multi-faceted real estate development firm, based in the Washington D.C. area.  The Wills Companies Team has executed real estate transactions totaling more than a billion dollars. The team at Wills Companies is adept at taking a project from start to finish, while delivering value-enriched acquisitions in all asset classes to our investors.

Our success stems from the dedication of our knowledgeable team in maintaining high standards of honesty, integrity, leadership and respect for the law, while aggressively seeking new opportunities to add value to communities.

What We Do

Wills Companies has extensive experience in the development of single and multi-family housing, as well as commercial real estate. Wills Companies also has vast experience with the student housing  market. We are involved in all aspects of the development process, establishing market and feasibility analysis, financing and contracting negations, construction planning all the way to property management.


Our partners are integral to our operations, which is why we work diligently to foster healthy working relationships with industry-leading third-party partners. Wills Companies formed Orion Student Housing with William Fideli Investments in 2012 and Orion Student Housing has quickly established itself as a leader in the student housing industry.

Building on the Success of Orion Student Housing, Wills Companies formed Gemini Real Estate Partners to develop Class-A apartment communities with luxurious amenities in North Carolina.

Property Management

Potomac Property Management (PPM) has achieved exceptional levels of management competence in both commercial and residential property management. The root of PPM’s success is derived from the implementaion of a comprehensive program of income management, expense minimization, customer services and the ability to recognize and capitalize on income opportunities. PPM manages Wills Companies’ local commercial and residential assets.

“Enabled by the trust and vision of our investors as well as the combined efforts of our highly qualified acquisition & development, construction, and property management teams, we are proud to report an outstanding performance record.

Recognizing that real estate opportunities are constantly changing and emerging from new directions, we have formed a decentralized management team for a quick and efficient response to any trend that provides us flexibility and a competitive edge in the marketplace.

Our vision for the continued growth and success of Wills Companies is firmly rooted in the importance we place on maintaining high standards of integrity in our company, in our business relationships, and in our industry.”
