Our Story

Our Story

Clearwater Communities exemplifies a clean, fluent vision of how a neighborhood should unfold in an appealing and heartfelt manner… a community that delivers value to its homeowners, earns proper returns for its stakeholders while creating a positive addition to the built environment.

At Clearwater Communities, we creatively apply our experience and wisdom to each stage of the process from acquisition and due diligence to entitlement and land development.  Supported by insightful market research, we excel at creating a vision that translates into a superior community that homebuyers want today.  Gone are the days of stuffing ten pounds into a five pound sack.  We go beyond the obvious to solve problems. We think differently.  Bottom line: We Create Value.

Led by homebuilding professional, Dan Kassel, our team applies its collective knowledge gained over decades of land development and home building experience to seize opportunities that translate into successful and profitable communities.  With a solid network of professionals at our side, we quickly solve problems and create market-driven solutions for the communities we develop.

While we strive to create remarkable communities, it is with an eye on the environment.  Over the years, we have found that sound environmental policies, strategically applied, lead to lower costs and quicker sales absorption.  Imagine that: A better community for our homeowners and our environment.  Now that’s a compelling argument.
