Preserve Properties is a boutique real estate development firm whose principals have broad experience creating distinctive, luxury multifamily communities.

Our Specialty

For more than 30 years, the professionals at Preserve Properties have developed highly successful, multifamily projects throughout the Southeast. Our core team is well-known in the industry for taking a focused approach on site selection, developing the right product for the market, and selecting the best partners to create extraordinary communities.


Developer Philosophy

At Preserve Properties, we believe in quality over quantity. That’s why we take our time in the pre-planning and design stages of each of our projects. We have the patience to wait for the right sites; if a site doesn’t offer an incredible location or views, we won’t build there. We focus on one project at a time and pull together the best team of architects, engineers, interior designers and general contractors to bring our vision to life.
