Ms. Williams has a proven track record of quality master planned communities and housing projects that are still great neighborhoods today. Some nearly 22 years later with golf courses, trails, parks, natural conservation areas, community centers, neighborhood shopping centers, schools and churches.  Her projects have withstood the test of time in sustainability.

Several of Caren’s projects have been equestrian master planned communities. As a fourth generation horse woman, Caren’s working knowledge of the horse industry both as a business and a hobby has helped her clients in acquiring raw land; planning, designing and entitling those equestrian communities; and selling lots to builders for equestrian oriented home sites. Caren’s knowledge of individual lot site planning in how to layout those homes, paddocks, small barns and trails systems proved invaluable to her clients.
