In our latest session of our Webinar Series, Jeff Brophy and Brett Oldford discussed how many businesses, developers, and investors are flocking to Florida hoping to capitalize on the development boom.
Attendees from across the country tuned in to watch and listen to our team share their real-world expertise. Jeff and Brett went into detail about the critical development considerations that need to be accounted for before starting a development project in South Florida. They also amplify the importance of having the right land development team to guide you through the process, and why making the right decision can save you a substantial amount of time (and money).
Here are some highlights:
