Create Living Stories.


Stewards of profound experiences in remarkable settings

We believe that story is at the root of exceptional real estate and that great design can bring people together. Each living narrative that we create reflects a passion for opening the door to magical, inspiring village environments that last for generations and create connections between people that transcend real estate.

Blackard Global has built over 15,000 residential homesites, but these master-planned communities segregate society and perpetuate division.



Village Model

NeoRetroism is the new philosophy of village building fostered by Jeffory Blackard. It advocates for people of all economic backgrounds, races, religions, and stations in life to live together in a village that meets the needs of its villagers.
