Gilbert & Ezelle provides a full range of land brokerage services related to the acquisition and disposition of all land types to include:
Mixed-Use Developments: The major demand generators within our six county coastal Georgia region include the Ports of Savannah and Brunswick, major military installations at Fort Stewart /Hunter Army Airfield, the manufacturing sector (Gulfstream, JCB and Mitsubishi) and tourism. Over the last 15 years, members of our team have planned, permitted, developed and marketed multiple planned-unit-developments located along the I-95 Corridor in Georgia and South Carolina. These well balanced developments have included commercial/retail, residential, industrial and recreational components. Our team has successfully performed the development consulting and sales and marketing functions thereby enabling major land owners in the private and corporate sectors to monetize their land holdings.
Timber Investment Tracts: The Coastal Georgia Region has an unparalleled combination of attributes (quality soils, climate, transportation, processing industries, etc.) contributing to the wealth of investment grade land dedicated to the production of timber. Forest products companies have had a major presence in our region for over 100 years and much of this land has been transferred to TIMOs and other institutional investors over the last ten to fifteen years. Our experience and thorough understanding of the industry and associated values of timber tracts allow us to offer specialized marketing and sales services for timber tracts on behalf of Buyers and Sellers.
Conservation /Mitigation Investment Tracts: The diverse land base throughout Coastal Georgia is defined by a myriad of wetlands, marshes and environmentally sensitive environments that are ideally suited for long term preservation, conservation and compatible recreational enjoyment. Our experience and contact base of wetland and conservation consultants is a valuable tool in evaluating the potential of individual land tracts and provides our clients with another source of contacts and prospective purchasers for land tracts.
Recreational Properties: Our market knowledge and experience in dealing in land tracts throughout our Region from a “hands on and active” enjoyment of the outdoors provides us with a unique skill set in representing clients searching for, or interested in disposing of recreational tracts. We have a comprehensive understanding of what makes a trophy recreational tract and are well suited to represent clients in identifying the perfect property for recreational enjoyment. We are also able fully understand and develop recreational value in a property through active land management and consulting with our network of property managers to assist Owners in realizing the full recreational benefits of a property.
Estate & Plantation Properties: We have experience in marketing unique coastal plantation tracts and estate or “family compounds” which requires a different approach to marketing. Our contact database throughout the Southeast and ability to utilize the national and international platform of the Cushman & Wakefield Land Practice Group is key in representing and identifying high-net worth individuals interested in acquiring this specialized class of properties.
At Gilbert & Ezelle our primary focus is to provide an exceptional level of service through a well defined utilization of our extensive market knowledge, our local, regional and national contact database and a high level of integrity. We base the service we provide to our brokerage clients on communication and attention to detail by providing progress reports on a regular basis along with a customized approach to each individual opportunity.
