About Us

XL Properties' owner, Mark Nugent, was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. After graduating from Lewis University and a few years working in the corporate world of insurance, Mark was moonlighting as a handyman in 1991 on the North-side of Chicago. This small business evolved and, in 1999, Mark went into fulltime general contracting.

In November 2004, Mark and family decided that it was time to make the move from the windy city and moved to the Jacksonville area of water and sun. After obtaining his Florida General Contracting license and Florida Real Estate Agent license, Mark started investing in properties all over Jacksonville, in stable areas where he would want to live with his family. His business has evolved into managing multiple renovations at one time averaging from $150,000 to $1.3 Million while continuing to be involved in day to day details of the business.
