Who We Are
A family shares shaved ice on Sea Colony’s promenade. A mother and teenage son paddle board at The Point at Bayside. A grandfather teaches his grandchildren to chip at the Village at Bear Trap Dunes. Freeman Companies make these unparalleled experiences and memories possible through thoughtful planning and enduring value.
For more than 65 years Freeman Companies have created innovative and inviting places to live, work, shop and play. We’ve developed and managed more than five million square feet of commercial space for shopping center and office use, servicing more than 1.1 million square feet of retail; developed more than 20,000 homes in 50 residential communities and built award-winning beach-front and golf course communities.
We’re proud to be a family-owned company. We put the needs and dreams of families first. Our shopping centers greet visitors with family-friendly convenience and offer tenants attentive, client-oriented management style. Our communities are planned and built with care to embrace the environment and create places where lifelong family memories are made.
The Freeman Companies have had a consistent approach to business since our founding by Carl M. Freeman in 1947. Our vision — to create places that enrich lives — is guided by a set of core values deeply rooted in our corporate culture. Freeman Companies:
