NAPLES, FL., – January 6, 2023—   Two prominent national real estate consulting agencies, RCLCO Real Estate Consulting  and John Burns Real Estate Consulting, have named Ave Maria, Florida as one of the Top 20 Selling Master-Planned Communities in the United States, according to their annual reports. Ave Maria reported a total of 586 new home sales in 2022, placing the development on both lists as the highest-ranking community in all of Collier County.

RCLCO ranks Ave Maria 18th in its annual list of Top 50 Selling Master-Planned Communities. “Collier County’s Ave Maria has rocketed itself to the rank of 18th best-selling master-planned community in the country for 2022, following a 24th place finish in 2021. This ongoing success should be viewed as a testament to the careful planning and investment in community place-making which Barron Collier Companies has done to set the Ave Maria community apart from its competition,” states the report’s author Karl Pischke of RCLCO.
