Our partners are our greatest asset. Strong relationships with investors, developers, and financial institutions have been a cornerstone of the Halstatt investment strategy.


Halstatt was built upon the legacy of Barron Gift Collier, one of the key figures in the development of Southwest Florida. His descendants, the Sproul family, formed Halstatt to reflect his spirit of leadership, community building and achievement. They have assembled a world class team of real estate and finance professionals, all with significant experience in Florida.

Halstatt is the operational and investment arm of the Sproul family. Judy Sproul, the granddaughter of Barron Gift Collier, established Halstatt over twenty years ago. She spearheaded the development of Grey Oaks Country Club, a prominent and successful golf course community located in Naples, FL.

Under Judy’s leadership, Halstatt has successfully grown its asset base over the past two decades. Currently, Halstatt maintains several other land holdings in its real estate portfolio, and it manages an extensive investment portfolio. Katie Sproul, Judy’s eldest daughter, now leads Halstatt and spearheaded the creation of Halstatt Real Estate Partners.
