Creating a clear vision and a solid foundation for development.

“RVI’s planning philosophy epitomizes the understanding of a community. It’s not just about building houses, not just about building lots. It’s about community and the people who are going to live there. Quality doesn’t mean expensive. It means well done.”

– Ted Nelson, Newland Communities


At RVi, we approach each project with an understanding of and commitment to our role as a trusted advisor.
