The primary mission of Ragatz Realty is to bring together sellers and buyers of resort-oriented properties. Included in the “buyers” category are purchasers, investors, joint venture partners and operating companies. “Resort-oriented properties” range from vacant developable land, to existing or under-construction projects, to bulk inventory. The term includes resort hotels, resort condominiums, vacation home homesites, resort timeshare and fractional interest offerings, golf courses, ski resorts, etc.
The common denominator of the firm’s emphasis is the word “resort.” This word encompasses traditional vacation destinations as well as urban settings, i.e., wherever people enjoy leisure time activities.
Principals of Ragatz Realty have accumulated more than 75 years of experience in the resort real estate industry. Our affiliate, Ragatz Associates, has conducted over 2,500 studies for resort real estate developers and investors in 48 states and more than 70 countries.
