Our Story

The name Clearwater Communities is a testament to a clean, clear vision of what should be, utilizing collective experience to see an opportunity and method to flexibly and creatively execute the solution.

At Clearwater Communities, we apply our political insight and community dynamics to focus on the regions we now best. We go beyond the obvious to ensure value in all phases of development, from securing governmental approvals to building and selling homes and town homes.

Led by homebuilding specialist Dan Kassel, our team applies its collective knowledge gained over decades of land development and home building to seek out opportunities with a high likelihood of success and above-average profitability. With a solid network of professional relationships, we call upon our friends and experts to help solve problems and create solutions for the communities we develop.

We have found that sound environmental policies, if applied strategically, can lead to lower costs, potentially higher revenues, and quicker sales absorption.
