Ocala ultra luxury living was redefined, if not invented, by developer Ralph L. Roberts. Half a century earlier, Ralph and his partner, Robert Campbell, opened a small freight company in Ohio.

Developer Larry Roberts continues to pioneer luxury living in Ocala. Additionally, he has built a World Equestrian here. This project will surely accelerate demand for Ocala luxury homes due to the prefect storm of factors it had brought to bear. These factors will fuel our community’s economic growth for decades to come.
The equestrian industry currently contributes $3 billion in revenue annually to the economy of greater Ocala. However, projections suggest that the industry will contribute more than triple that amount annually before long. Of course, as illuded to above, at the center of this amazing projected growth sits the World Equestrian Center. This network of equestrian facilities is already drawing visitors and competitors globally.
Additionally, Larry Roberts plans to build a WEC residential community that will take ultra luxury living to a new extreme. If the artist’s renderings of homes to be built here are any indication, Larry will build very special residences in our town. In fact, they are likely to dwarf most luxury homes available in Ocala today. We clearly respect Larry’s vision. No doubt, he has done his research. Therefore, we conclude that commissioned marketing studies confirmed demand for such an ultra luxury community. Undoubtedly, such a demand will draw buyers to existing luxury communities as well.
