SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ. (August 10, 2020) – Arizona-based Land Advisors Organization, the nation’s largest land brokerage firm, announced the major expansion of its operations in the Southeastern U.S. with the addition of offices in Atlanta, Georgia, and Jacksonville, Florida. The firm’s existing regional offices include Tampa and Orlando, Florida, and Charlotte, North Carolina.
The new Atlanta and Jacksonville offices will provide land brokerage and capital advisory services to landowners, home builders, investors and developers of industrial/logistics, office, retail, condominiums, and master-planned communities across the region.
“This is a very strategic move for us. Not only are we connecting the region’s growing markets by adding advisors with in-depth knowledge of the local and surrounding areas; but we’re bringing on an expert in mitigation banking to serve a broader group clients who need assistance with overcoming development challenges that are common in the region,” said Greg Vogel, founder and CEO of Land Advisors Organization. “We’re seeing a significant influx of people into these and the surrounding markets from major cities in the Northeast and Midwest, largely due to COVID-19 impact, and it presents great opportunity for the landowners, developers and investors who we serve.”
David Moore, CCIM, a veteran real estate broker and investment fund director, joined the firm to manage Land Advisors Organization’s Atlanta office. He will be introducing the firm’s expansive data-driven market analytics and capital services to clients in the market and those looking to purchase, sell or invest in Atlanta and its surrounding markets. During the next two years, the firm plans to hire several additional brokers and support staff.
A native of Atlanta, Moore has extensive knowledge of Georgia and the nearby thriving real estate markets, including Nashville, Tennessee; Birmingham, Alabama; and Raleigh, North Carolina. He has been involved in commercial real estate and investment fund management for more than two decades.
Moore’s experience includes real estate sales, capital and debt allocation, development, land acquisition and dispositions as well as managing and permitting land in the path of growth. He is well-versed in providing innovative structures for land buyers and sellers by adding value through envisioning, planning, entitlement and pre-development work. Moore will be managing the firm’s new Atlanta office and its growing team of producers.
“We’re witnessing the strength and resilience of the Atlanta market, evidence by an unemployment rate well below that of the nation and positive job growth over the last 12 months, despite challenging current economic conditions,” Moore said. “And, with demand for housing being largely unaffected with new home permitting currently at the same pace as last year, I look forward to continuing to work with builders, developers and investors in my new role at Land Advisors Organization and Land Advisors Capital that now allows me to provide invaluable access to the firm’s data-driven market analytics that provides offers informed decision-making.“
Land Advisors Organization’s Jacksonville, Florida, office will be managed by Logan Holz, an established local real estate broker, who is new to the firm. He is bringing the firm’s expansive data-driven market analytics and capital services to the market as well as his expertise in mitigation banking.

His understanding of the complexity of permitting, development, and providing transaction and advisory services to a wide range of institutional and high net worth clients enables him to successfully execute engagements in the quickly growing market.
“I am honored to be part of an outstanding organization that shares my values and goals,” Holz said. “I look forward to utilizing the firm’s proprietary technological resources to provide clients with the type of information on land values and sales as well as demographics and population growth that is not typically available in Northeast Florida.”
