1964 Marked the Beginning

1964 marked the beginning of sustained growth and real estate development in Southwest Florida. It was in 1964 that Raymond L. Lutgert began a visionary project that transformed 760 acres bordering 1-1/4 miles of Naples beachfront into one of the most prestigious communities in all of Florida. Ultimately named Park Shore, Raymond L. Lutgert’s community was the first planned unit development in the state and served as a model for subsequent developments and the creation of The Lutgert Companies. His innovative thinking and attention to detail, the uncompromising beauty of his finished product, and his unwavering commitment to respecting the environment became the foundation on which the success of The Lutgert Companies is built. The tradition continues…


More than 50 years later, The Lutgert Companies’ portfolio encompasses an extensive array of residential and commercial properties, each bearing the original trademarks of the family’s commitment to excellence. More than 25 of the company’s distinctive high-rise luxury towers line the landscapes of Park Shore and Bonita Springs, in addition to its exclusive golf community, Estuary at Grey Oaks, and Linville Ridge, a master-planned mountaintop community in North Carolina. The Lutgert Companies’ award-winning commercial properties include Mercato, an urban lifestyle community in North Naples, and the Northern Trust office building. The Lutgert Companies continues to diversify with the addition of Premier Sotheby’s International Realty, Lutgert Insurance, Premier Commercial and Lutgert Title.
