LAKEWOOD RANCH, Fla. (August 13, 2015) – Neal Communities (, southwest Florida’s premier, private homebuilder, continued its solid sales performance in July with 92 home sales in Hillsborough, Manatee, Sarasota, Lee and Collier Counties.

This has been a record-breaking year for the prolific homebuilder with rapid expansion entering new markets and opening several new communities in Florida. The builder is on target to exceed 1,000 home sales for the year, an increase of more 25 percent over last year’s sales.

“We have embarked on an ambitious yet steady growth path, and as we continue to expand into new markets, our core values remain firmly in place,” said Michael Storey, president of the Lakewood Ranch-based homebuilding company. “With new ideal locations and diverse home choices for discerning buyers, our top priority continues to be providing superior customer service and improving people’s lives. That is our core philosophy, set from the top, and our entire team embodies this culture. That coupled with a strong home market and continued low interest rates equals a robust real estate market in southwest Florida,” said Storey.

Grand Palm, Neal Communities’ award-winning master-planned community in Venice, Fla., led sales in July, with 21 new home sales. September will mark the third anniversary of the community’s grand opening.
