The has been in publication since 1991, focusing on recreational residential and resort community development for the purpose of providing positive trends to the industry. The publication has its roots in the consulting practice of Ralph Stewart Bowden, Inc., Real Estate Counselors.

The philosophy behind Ralph Stewart Bowden, Inc. is to provide consulting services at a level of principal involvement that is atypical of larger, more institutionalized firms. We typically serve only a small number of clients at any one time, providing for
undistracted attention to each assignment and a timely response.

Ralph Stewart Bowden has served on ULI-The Urban Land Institute’s Residential, Recreational, and Environmental Councils, as well as its research committee and the Recreational Development Handbook committee.

The company specializes in providing preliminary and ongoing strategic planning services based on market research and analysis to large- and small-scale master-planned, recreational-oriented developments.

Our efforts generally focus on such issues as: Demand, Market Position, Product Configuration, Pricing and Absorption, Amenities, Marketing Strategies, and Fiscal

We typically represent an integral part of the planning process, participating as a member of the development or management team along with land planners, attorneys and accountants, and architects and operations managers.

By complementing the talents represented by the development team, we provide specialized insights into capital-intensive, market-sensitive areas of project development, and offer decision-oriented perspectives with respect to opportunities and potential problems in the post-planning period of a development’s life.

The following is a list of developments for which Bowden has provided consulting services since 1972 while a principal with Hunter Moss & Company and Pannell Kerr Forster (PKF), and since 1987 as president of Ralph Stewart Bowden, Inc.
