Realmark Group was formed in 2000 by company president Will Stout, who had come to Southwest Florida to retire, after developing properties and owning a real estate brokerage for the past 30 years in Atlanta.
When Will discovered the partially developed 150-acre waterfront site of Cape Harbour, situated just 3 ½ miles from the Gulf of Mexico, he immediately realized the property’s potential. It was his vision to develop the site into an upscale waterfront community which at this time had only been experienced in the Naples area. Will's goal was to build a deepwater marina which was open to the public; where people could live, work, boat, dine and shop. Needless to say with this large-scale project ahead, retirement was short-lived.
In just six years, Cape Harbour has been transformed to the upscale luxurious waterfront, entertainment district that it is today, with three condominium towers, four restaurants, shops, boutiques, and art galleries. The private gated residential community of Cape Harbour has waterfront homes valued at over $15 million.
In 2001, Realmark acquired Burnt Store Marina; the largest marina on Florida’s west coast, with more than 500 slips.
Realmark is developing several other communities throughout Southwest Florida, including Entrada, Tucker’s Grade, Judd Creek and Telegraph Creek, as well as sites in North Carolina.
Realmark’s corporate symbol is the sextant, a precision tool used by sailors to navigate the high seas. Reliable and accurate, the sextant was the tool trusted to lead them home. Realmark serves in that same tradition. With the highest caliber of team members and resources, Realmark Group has set its course and is raising the quality of life in the communities it serves and delivering on its promises to be the best.
