THE CARL M. FREEMAN COMPANIES

…have been standard-bearers of innovation and excellence in real estate development since 1947. The philosophy that guides us is the sure sense that it is not merely the success of the venture that matters, but the well-being of society itself. Our forward-thinking, laser-focus continues under President and CEO Michelle Freeman, who takes the responsibility of carrying the legacy forward very personally. Under her guidance, the Freeman ethic, which foregrounds family and the well-being of the world, offers unique owner perspectives on the many services we provide: owner representation; third-party management; value creation; consumer-directed marketing; neighborhood development; and tenant services.

Our Story

COMMERCIAL PROPERTIES

Creating places that enrich lives–that’s the goal of all the Freeman commercial properties.  Our amenity-rich centers, which are designed as destinations in themselves, offer customers the choice of running a quick errand or taking the time to relax, renew, and refresh.

  • Contemporary approach to shopping and working environments
  • Strategic leasing planning for the best business mix
  • Marketing designed to attract customers and enhance merchant sales

NEIGHBORHOODS TRANSFORMING REGIONS AND AWARD-WINNING GOLF

Our property investment objectives stem from the philosophy that the success of contemporary capital investment comes down to the creation, support, and maintenance of the community experience.  Respecting land conservation and environmental stewardship of existing green space is a part of that. So too is partnering with those who share our goal of delivering those top-drawer amenities that enable the balance between providing both an active lifestyle and creating an idyllic haven.

  • Troon, the third largest party manager of golf and club operations in the world, are the creative force behind all our sports and hospitality, including the unique Bayside Institute.
  • SoDel Concepts, the award-winning restaurant group of Southern Delaware’s Culinary Coast, are our valued partners in all the Food & Beverage services, including The Cove Restaurant at Bayside.
  • Our valued partners in all the areas of community management not related to sports and fitness are Legum & Norman, who are the acknowledged industry leaders in the field.
