FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (LAKELAND, FL – Dec. 09, 2014) – Coldwell Banker Commercial Saunders Real Estate in Lakeland, FL (CBCSRE) announces the recent sale of a portion of the ranch, formerly known as Blue Head Ranch, totaling 33,000+/- acres and closing for $56,386,307. The property is located in Highlands County, Florida. Dean Saunders from Coldwell Banker Commercial Saunders Real Estate, represented the buyer.
The purchase of this property also generated a sizeable donation to the Florida Cattlemen’s Association (FCA) Foundation through the Saunders Gives Back Program (SGB). SGB was able to give $25,000 back to the FCA foundation because of the sale.
The SGB program is set up for FCA members to be able to participate in funding the FCA Foundation through property referrals to CBCSRE. Once sold and closed, 5 percent of the agency’s commission from the referring party’s transaction side is contributed to the FCA Foundation. The donations from this program help to sustain and preserve the heritage of Florida cattle ranchers. Florida’s cattle industry is one of the 15 largest in the United States, has been a strong supporter of Florida’s youth, and has worked diligently to give back to the communities they serve.
As a long-time Florida land real estate broker and member of FCA, Saunders has strong ties to the association and the rich tradition of Florida landowners, ranchers, cattlemen, and Florida conservation.
Continuing the program for 2015, FCA members can go to SaundersGiveBack.com to register.
