Headquartered in Palm Beach County, Kolter Homes builds homes and communities in Florida, Georgia, and the Carolinas.
Cresswind is their brand of communities for those 55 or better.
Similar to Pulte Homes’ “Del Webb“, GL Homes’ “Valencia“, D.R. Horton’s “Freedom”, Shea Homes’ “Trilogy”, and Taylor Morrison’s Esplanade brand, Cresswind is geared toward those seeking the best communities for active adult living.
One of the hardest things about retiring and moving to Florida is trying to figure out which part of Florida is right for you. Kolter Homes tries to solve this problem by building their Cresswind communities in some of the best parts of the state.
