From our beginnings in the tiny town of Stamford, Vermont, the Patten Family Companies have grown and evolved into the nation’s premier developer of recreational and residential land. This magnificent journey of success has led to the creation of a land based enterprise that has broadened its scope and reach to include timberland, residential condominiums, a finance company and home building companies; all both natural derivatives of our core land business. For 100 years, the success of the Patten Family Companies has always been acutely contingent upon serving our customers well and our unceasing commitment to 100% customer satisfaction. Serving customers from all over the world, we’ve done business in 46 states and Canada, yielding billions of dollars in sales across nearly 1,000 projects and hundreds of thousands of land parcels.
Today the companies are 150 employees strong with holdings of thousands of acres of recreational and residential land, commercial condominium projects, home building projects and a financial division servicing millions of dollars in loans. From condominiums and resorts to commercial buildings and golf courses, from raw land to timberland and subdivisions, we specialize in properly evaluating real estate opportunities and determining the highest and best use, resulting in the highest value for all interested parties. We continue to actively pursue extraordinary values in large acreage and timberland, condominiums, and financial opportunities wherever we can find them.
With well over 100 years of collective experience in helping customers realize their dream of land ownership, National Land Partners, LLC (NLP) has finely tuned its model of transforming rural land into premium recreational and residential real estate, coupled with a high level of customer service. Thousands of acres are owned and managed by the companies. The companies have also completed nearly 1,000 projects encompassing hundreds of thousands of land parcels with sales in excess of $1 billion dollars. The NLP land acquisition team researches and inspects hundreds of potential land deals every year, paying close attention to geographic regions, visual and historic interests, environmental studies, zoning reviews, permitting and most importantly, how the company can pass along savings and value to our customers. NLP sees itself primarily as a service company, with a strong conviction to the belief that one shouldn’t have to be rich to own land. It’s this simple core belief that has resulted in thousands of happy land owners who have become motivated to encourage their own personal network of friends and family to do business with us.
Our company’s financial strength enables us to acquire large tracts of beautiful, highly desirable, undeveloped land, usually next to or near amenities such as golf courses, ocean, lakes, rivers or mountains. These properties are also within a reasonable driving distance of major metropolitan areas. The company then improves the property’s infrastructure with utilities, roads and a variety of amenities, and seeks all governmental approvals and permits. The land is then subdivided into scenic, recreational, ready-to-build homesites, otherwise unavailable to the general public. Our in-house team of sales professionals then assist prospective purchasers in selecting the piece of property ideally suited for their needs. Homeowner associations are also established to oversee community guidelines and covenants after sales at the development have been completed. The Patten Family Companies also includes Inland Management Corp., serving as the central business core that enables National Land Partners to operate autonomously. Land acquisition, sales, marketing, legal, human resources, accounting and IT infrastructure all exist internally. This streamlined model provides for more efficient processes and ultimately, dollars saved; benefiting not only the company at large, but our loyal customers and investors as well.
Mission | Vision
The mission of Patten Family Companies is to continue the work tracing back through four generations of buying and selling unique land bargains to individuals. To succeed at this mission we have expanded our services to include the wholesale acquisition and disposition of assets. In the forty-five years that Patten Family Companies have been formally organized, we have been described as a land company, a marketing company, and a specialty retailer. While each of these descriptions are accurate, at all levels and in every function, Patten Family Companies is a service company. Our commitment to customer service is the firm bedrock upon which this enterprise was built and has continued to grow.
The vision of Patten Family Companies is to help people achieve ownership in some of America’s most extraordinary real estate. Our customers’ needs are the focal point of each project we develop and every decision we make. Everything that we do will exceed the customer’s expectation for quality, value and service.
