Chairman The Lutgert Companies
In the mid-1960s my father, Raymond L. Lutgert, had the vision to transform a 1.25-mile stretch of beachfront into one of Naples’ most prestigious neighborhoods. Over the past five decades, The Lutgert Companies has set the standard for creative and environmentally responsible development of luxury properties. My family’s vision for passion and excellence runs three generations deep, and continues to produce extraordinary experiences for its customers.
More than 25 luxury high-rise residential towers line the beach of Park Shore and the bayfront of Bonita Springs. The tradition of excellence in residential living has continued with unique villas and estate homes in Estuary, an exclusive 350acre addition to the acclaimed Grey Oaks community and clean-lined coastal contemporary homes in the Residences at Mercato, all built by our professionals at Lutgert Construction. The development portfolio also encompasses Linville Ridge, a luxury private, gated golf course community in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. New to Linville Ridge are the Cottages at Cranberry Cove, a neighborhood of single-family homes. While widely known as a luxury developer and builder, the company also maintains a reputation for philanthropic leadership, sound stewardship and community commitment. The Lutgert Companies contributes resources to numerous charities in the region covering a range of needs: healthcare, the underprivileged, arts and education. 4200 GULF SHORE BLVD.
