CORTEZ — Pearl Homes has named Compass Development Marketing Group as the exclusive real estate agent for Hunters Point, a 148-unit coastal community soon to be constructed in Cortez, Manatee County, overlooking the Gulf of Mexico.
The resort community and marina will consist of 99 homes for sale and several dozen hotel units. The 99 residential properties, along with the resort, hotel units and common areas, will form a virtual power plant, according to a press release. As a net-zero home, each residence is capable of producing more energy than it will consume, the release adds.
“Compass will present future homebuyers, especially those who are environmentally conscious, with a very modern home, designed to be a true 21st-century residence,” says Pearl Homes Founder and President Marshall Gobuty in a statement. “In choosing Compass to bring Hunters Point to market, we found an experienced real estate team that is as advanced in sales and marketing as Pearl Homes is in design, construction, and its carbon footprint.”
Hunters Point will meet the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED Platinum level, its highest level of residential certification, and incorporate the recently introduced Live and Build Healthy standards.
The homes and villas will be about 1,800 square feet. The community will include 38 homes with dock slips. On-site amenities will include a resort-style pool, water sports, private marina with private boat ramp and a manatee viewing area, the release states.
“Compass is thrilled to represent not only the first net-zero community on the Florida coast, but the most expansive community of its kind in the country,” says Compass Director of New Development Southeast Beth Butler in the statement. “We are confident in our ability to identify the right buyers for Hunters Point, pairing environmentally-conscious families and individuals with the most sustainable home builder in the country in Pearl Homes.”
Pearl Homes and Compass expect to begin formal sales as early as September.
Pearl Homes is a homebuilder and real estate developer with sustainable and workforce housing projects underway in Bradenton, Ellenton, Cortez and other locations throughout the region and California. Compass Development Marketing Group has over 36 offices nationwide.
