Palm Coast, FL – August 29, 2011 – Homebuilders, developers, Realtors®, and others tied to Palm Coast’s real estate market have been active recently. Here are a few making the news:
Laurelmor was one of the Ginn communities caught up in the $675 million credit default. It was purchased by a division of Reynolds Plantation and re-launched as Reynolds Blue Ridge. Now, Reynolds Plantation’s image has been tarnished by its own financial crisis. The Reynolds name has been removed as the community is re-launched for a second time as Blue Ridge Mountain Club.
Prior to Reynolds’ financial woes, one of its subsidiaries managed several Ginn communities including Hammock Beach, in Palm Coast, and Reunion, near Orlando. Several former Reynolds personnel left the company to form Front Door Communities, which now operates the resorts.
The law firm of Chiumento & Selis, PL became Chiumento Selis Dwyer, PL on Aug. 1st when the Palm Coast firm welcomed partner Marc Dwyer to its staff. This addition to the firm allows Chiumento Selis Dwyer to offer a broader range of services for every legal need from personal injury, real estate, wills, trusts, probate and elder law to construction and commercial litigation, business and corporate law to land use, zoning and development, and governmental practice.
