About Lana Development

About us

Lana is a real estate development company based in Florida. We have over 30 opportunistic projects in our portfolio, and we focus on pursuing mid-sized real estate investment opportunities to achieve the most sought-after results: medium-term capital gains and long-term recurring income.

The main reasons why a selected group of High Net Worth Accredited Investors, Family Offices, and Funds partner with us are:

  • We are a small quick responsive team, that has a laser-focused approach developing just a few projects we “cherry-pick” per year.
  • Coming from the fix & flip industry, cost efficiency is within our genes.
  • We value transparency and our investors have full access to our team.
  • Our lean structure lets us charge fewer fees and share a higher percentage of the profits than our bigger competitors.

We take care of the critical phases of the process in-house: Acquisition, due diligence, feasibility, market studies, permitting approval, and construction. We also partner with the best local architects and sales team to design and sell our products.

Structuring creative partnerships with accredited high-net-worth individuals, family offices, and funds is one of our specialties. We like sharing opportunities and results with partners that help fund our deals.

Lana's process-oriented experienced team shares the same beliefs, work ethic, and consistent pursuit of excellence in every project.
