History of ABD Development

Since the 1980’s, ABD Development has emerged as Central Florida’s leading custom builder of luxury homes in Orlando, setting trends and standards in the home building industry and crafting a legacy of award winning excellence in the area’s most prestigious neighborhoods.

Our unwavering commitment to excellence has helped us build an outstanding reputation with our customers and within the industry, earning us the honor of being named Central Florida’s Custom Homebuilder of the Year five times by the Orlando Business Journal.

As a consistent winner in the Orlando Parade of Homes, we have also received awards from the Home Builders Association of Mid-Florida, including the Grand Award for Custom Builder of the Year and four MAME (Major Achievements in Marketing Excellence) awards for the Vizcaya and Aurora models, including the Grand Award for Best Selling Single Family Home in a twelve state region for the Case Maderia estate home. We are proud to say the list of accomplishments goes on and on. However, our most coveted award to date is the complete satisfaction of the loyal customers we have earned along the way. We are excited to craft your luxury home in Orlando or custom home in Palm Coast.
