Ralph established Ralph Stewart Bowden, Inc., Real Estate Counselors in 1987 to provide market analysis and strategic planning services to the community development, resort development and recreational development industries. The company specializes in providing preliminary and ongoing strategic planning services, based upon market research and analysis, to large and small scale master-planned, recreationally oriented developments, resorts with a residential component. Historically, our efforts have focused on issues such as Demand Analyses, Market Position, Community Composition, Product Profiles and Selection and Scope of Amenities. Our geographic areas of experience include the USA, the Caribbean, Mexico, Costa Rica and Panama.
Ralph represents an integral part of the planning process, participating as a member of the development or management team, along with land planners, attorneys and accountants, architects and operations managers. By complementing the talents represented by the development team, we can provide specialized insights into capital intensive, market-sensitive areas of project development, and decision-making oriented perspective concerning both opportunities and potential problems in the post-planning period of a development’s life.
