What we do...

Land Acquisition

Exceptional property development begins with exceptional properties. We strive to locate, identify and purchase properties with unique natural features and strategic business value.

Successful property development starts before building ever begins. Expert feasibility, market studies and property analysis help Novak Brothers ensure a successful development project.


We use our extensive experience in land development and planning to create original, functional master plans for a variety of residential and mixed-use communities.
