Creating Communities Like No Other

The family’s reputation for integrity, professionalism and attention to detail has made the Huffines name widely respected within the industry and the State of Texas

Huffines Communities is a multi-faceted real estate company established by Donald and Phillip Huffines to create first-class communities that provide an exceptional lifestyle. “Place Making” is a critical part of everything the company does. Special entries, extensive amenities, creative planning and design, enhanced architecture, and a myriad of social programming are all part of the formula used to build communities that are sales leaders within their competitive markets. Only the best is brought to each project and selected strategic alliances are created to enhance the unique environment of each Signature Community. Huffines Communities has assembled a talented team with a combined experience of nearly 300 years in real estate that turns these visions into reality.

Public/private partnerships with local governments are a critical component of the planning and entitlement process for each community. The company has been able to offer amenities and lifestyle never before accomplished.

Environmentally sensitive in its development approach, the company is known for saving and relocating trees, enhancing natural habitats and tributaries, creating neighborhood parks, and leaving large, open expanses of grasses. The pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods offer master trail systems and adjoining retail and commercial services to serve the community and its residents. They even plan for and financially assist neighborhood schools. For these reasons, Huffines Communities consistently provides value to investors, residents, and cities.

Huffines Communities primarily develops mixed-use communities located in resort or metropolitan areas in the domestic United States. Most of our competition focuses on repeating cookie-cutter widgets giving little or no consideration for the long term sustainability of developments over the next 50 to 100 years. We invest in and develop real estate through considering a wide range of possible development strategies to create something truly special and unique with sustainable value that will only increase over time.

Investment Strategies

Huffines Communities is renowned for identifying strategically located real estate which possesses great intrinsic value often impaired by significant unsolved development issues. Value is created and harvested through the creative resolution of these issues. Understanding the political process combined with the ability and experience of Huffines team members in working – and partnering – with local, state and federal government agencies is many times the critical element. Decisions to entitle and sell or to pursue horizontal/vertical development activities are made considering market trends, upside development potential and return requirements. Should horizontal/vertical development be pursued, Huffines Communities has repeatedly demonstrated its foresight, vision, and ability to deliver successful, award-winning developments which generate solid investment returns.

Development Strategies

While real estate is sometimes purchased for investment to be taken through entitlements/restructuring and sold, our passion is in creating new urbanism, mixed use sustainable environments that provide the finest living experience possible. Huffines Communities strives to develop unique and extraordinary live, work and play environments. Huffines will not pursue horizontal or vertical development without being able to create a distinct competitive advantage in the marketplace. The seasoned Huffines team has the experience and ability to see beyond the obvious to accomplish this. With foresight, financial stability and commitment to excellence Huffines Communities spends the time, energy, research and diligence necessary to create first-class, unique real estate developments which are successful, sustainable, and profitable.
