More Woes for Fords Colony Developer Realtec

fords colony williamsburg         Residents of Ford’s Colony in Rocky Mount North Carolina are on edge after the upscale community’s golf course recently shut down and a section of the community was taken over by the lender BB&T bank.

The golf course closed in January and was taken over by C&F Bank, the lender for the golf course. The course likely will reopen soon after the bank hires a golf management company to run the course. Early indications are the course will be handed over to a golf management company (Sources indicate it might be Traditional Golf Properties of Toano, VA). 

Traditional Golf Properties seems to be on a buying spree having recently  purchased The Golf Club at Brickshire in Providence Forge VA as well as three North Carolina golf courses from Bluegreen Golf — The Golf Club of Chapel Ridge in Pittsboro, The Preserve at Jordan Lake in Pittsboro and Carolina National Golf Club in Bolivia. Those purchases boosted the company’s portfolio to 11 mid-Atlantic golf courses.

Of the 132 lots in Fords Colony Rock Mount taken over by BB&T, about 30 already are developed, so infrastructure is completed. There are another 32 partially developed lots where roads need to be completed. There are also about 60 to 70 lots that don’t have any infrastructure yet that are platted and unsold.

In another blow to Realtec/ First Choice Realty . C&F Bank has chosen another real estate broker to market the recently foreclosed lots in the Eaglescliffe subdivision of Ford’s Colony in Williamsburg VA.

C&F has hired Jerry Moore who past experiences include overseeing sales and development of the Governors Land and Stonehouse communities when he was president of Dominion Land. Moore will be marketing all of the remaining lots in Eaglescliffe that were formerly owned by Realtec
