What We Achieved For Our Investors

What we achieved

Our team helps investors find the right opportunities predominantly in Florida. By focusing on high-growth markets with long-term fundamentals that meet our stringent investment criteria, our property buying process allows you to benefit from new rental options.

Build-to-Rent Properties offer a great opportunity to create a sustainable, passive income portfolio. We not only help get you into the right rental income opportunity, but we also offer property management services to make your life easier.

To further promote and empower people with our Build-to-Rent Passive Income model, we were recently acquired by Brightland Homes, whose parent organization is Sumitomo Forestry, a 300-year-old company that has allowed us to further strengthen our ability to deliver value and financial options to our investors.

We focus on areas with population growth, economic growth, good affordability and desirability, drawing people to the area where there is the need for more housing.

“The real estate investments we’ve made through the build-to-rent program has accelerated our passive income to help give us the space to enjoy our family lives to the fullest. Absolute game changers and some of my favorite people to work with.”

Carter & Chris Funk
“We didn’t know it then, but 2008 is the best thing that ever happened to us.”

We grew Southern Impression Homes organically from the ground up, during the worst economic downturn in living history. This allowed us to focus on what works and yield results.

Today, our portfolios are designed to perform even in difficult markets.

Jim & Jamie Sheils
“Passive income gave us more time with our family. We help others do the same.”
We have 18 summers with our children. We wanted the free time to enjoy as much time as possible with them. Built-To-Rent passive income has allowed us to create a legendary family life.

What drives us is empowering other families to create an exceptional quality of life for their family too.
