Babcock Ranch is a new town being developed in SWFL. It is an environmentally conscious master plan community. Babcock Ranch is America’s 1st completely solar powered town. This developing community has dining, shops, doctors offices, a K-8 charter school, a gym and many other amenities. It will eventually have a grocery store, more retail and reach a population of 50,000 as it continues to expand.

The developers vision places a strong emphasis on technology, sustainability, and healthy living. Babcock Ranch’s commitment to clean energy often gets the most attention. Powering this town is a solar field made up of over 340,000 solar panels. Technology is another exciting part of this town's future. Currently being programmed are autonomous vehicles that are electric-powered, self-driving shuttles. These autonomous vehicles will eventually be summoned through an app to take residents to and from various points throughout Babcock Ranch. The community is also being built with healthy living in mind. The developers have planned for 50 miles of nature trails and provide equipment rentals for staying active. There is also a large outdoor sports center called Jack Peeples Park and a Lee Health Healthy Life Center located in Founders Square.


Another vision from the developers was providing an excellent education for the next generation. The K-8 Charter school called Babcock Neighborhood School teaches using a greenSTEAM curriculum. They have a unique teaching method called project based learning which engages learning while problem solving. 


One thing about Babcock Ranch that cannot be captured on a website is the friendliness and warmth of its citizens. People of all ages are drawn here and they all seem to desire a sense of community. Babcock Ranch itself hosts many events that provides a social venue for neighbors to get to know each other but many of the residents also put together block parties and social gatherings on their own as well. The small town feel here in Babcock Ranch is very unique. There is so much more to Babcock Ranch than new homes and amenities;   it truly is a lifestyle.


As a resident of Babcock Ranch myself, I know that the process of purchasing a home and moving to the town can be more difficult than expected. I realized that there are many future residents out there who will certainly have questions that pertain to the different builders, the HOA, and the town itself. I would like to be your single point of contact to help navigate the waters and make the process as easy and efficient as possible for you.

I also have the unique perspective of having personally lived in both Lennar and Pulte products, Babcock Ranch's two most built homes to date.
