About PCR


Your Trusted Guide to Lifestyle Communities

Private Communities Registry, LLC (PCR) leads the way as the top online resource for real estate shoppers seeking amenity-rich, master-planned lifestyle communities. We understand that finding a home is about more than just number of bedrooms, bathrooms, and total square footage—it's about finding the perfect community to match your lifestyle.

Pioneering the Online Search for Lifestyle Communities

Even before the rise of Google, we recognized the need for a trusted and influential online resource for lifestyle-oriented homebuyers. That's why we launched our website, PrivateCommunities.com in 1996, becoming the original real estate portal focused on helping you find your dream lifestyle community.

In today's digital world, PCR is more valuable than ever. We understand that most home searches begin online. In fact, our research shows that over 90% of buyers search communities online—and we're here to guide you every step of the way. With our nearly 30-year reputation and expertise in the industry, we partner with the nation's top builders, developers, and real estate companies to bring you a comprehensive selection of communities.
