“In order to build towards a superior real estate product, we must always look to the future, encourage new ideas, work hard to improve existing ones, and above all else, welcome the spirit of innovation with open arms.” – Harvey Hernandez, Newgard Development Group

Developing more than two decades in the South Florida market, Harvey Hernandez ability is in revivifying high-end residential projects that evoke the nostalgic memories of a community and era.
