Vacant Land

& Development


Market Knowledge

The CRE Boss Ladies are here to help evaluate the many factors that influence land value.

We know the fundamentals of land acquisition and disposition.  We have the skills and knowledge to analyze property development opportunities, provide market studies, marketing strategies, including promotion and advertising to bring a property to market.

Zoning & Permitting

The need for developers to obtain permits and approvals is specific to each stage of real estate development and unique to each municipality.  We know the approval and permitting process in the Tampa-St Petersburg MSA.  We can identify the challenges of working with multiple stakeholders in the development process and provide assistance navigating with various entities.


Welcome to Florida where many environmental considerations and challenges in real estate development exist. We can provide guidance through environmental studies and assist you with mitigation environmental issues, surface and sub-surface geotechnical studies, and even endangered species or protected wildlife, historical or cultural restrictions on a site.

Acquisitions & Dispositions

Acquiring a property is the first step of the real estate development process. We have the knowledge and skills needed to assist the Buyer to acquire the property with an attractive price and terms, provide due diligence expertise, negotiate sales contracts, monitor pre-and post-closing conditions, and pursue seller-financing opportunities when available.  We add value for the Seller by understanding market values and the development process.  We help business people buy and sell vacant land.
