LAKELAND, FL, August 21, 2023 - SVN | Saunders Ralston Dantzler, a distinguished name in land and commercial real estate, was recently recognized as one of the "2023 Best Brokerages" in The Land Report's annual survey. SVN | Saunders Ralston Dantzler has been recognized as one of “America’s Best Brokerages” every year since the inception of this national leadership list in 2011. These accolades are a testament to the brokerage's exceptional performance in land sales and its unwavering commitment to the industry.

The Land Report, the nation’s premier land publication, determines its honorees on the total value of self-reported domestic land sales through traditional brokerage. Known for specializing in ranch and recreation, farms, groves, timberland, large acreage, transitional land, residential development, and conservation easements, the brokerage's versatility and expertise have made it stand out within the Southern United States.
