Real Estate – Florida Conservation Easements

About Florida Conservation Easements

Dean Saunders’ life’s work, first in the Florida legislature and now in real estate, has been closely tied to conserving Florida’s landscape through work in the legislative process and guidance to landowners for preserving their land.

Selling your land as a Florida conservation easement is recommended to real estate clients when the property has the qualified features, meets guidelines, and the landowner desires a way to keep the property from major development for generations to come.
