Mary Lawson

SVP of Legislative Affairs & Chief Lobbyist


Like all members of our Government Relations team, Mary is extremely busy. As Senior Vice President of Legislative Affairs, she helps lead our legislative efforts and serves as the association’s Chief Lobbyist. After graduating from Virginia Tech (Go Hokies!), she began working on campaigns all over the country, and thankfully for Virginia REALTORS®, she found her way back to the commonwealth. Before joining our organization, she worked with Virginia REALTORS® when she ran a State Senate race and when she was with the Democratic Senate Caucus. When Mary has the chance to get away and relax, she loves to travel, enjoys the food scene in Richmond (especially Thai cuisine), and going to Virginia Tech football games.
