John A. Hillman to Head Sales and Marketing for Talis Park

NAPLES, Fla. (May 30, 2012) Kitson & Partners, developer of Talis Park,  a 450-acre master-planned community home to Naples’ acclaimed Norman & Dye golf course, announced today that John A. Hillman has been appointed to lead Talis Park’s Sales and Marketing efforts.

Hillman brings nearly 20 years of successful sales leadership to Naples’ newest luxury community, Talis Park, which was formerly known as Tuscany Reserve. He has managed more than $540 million in residential sales, leading sales and marketing projects spanning from Hawaii, Texas, the Bahamas and Cayman Islands.

Most recently, Hillman served as Director of Sales and Marketing for Dart Realty Cayman Limited’s Camana Bay in the Cayman Islands. At Talis Park, he will be responsible for developing a strategic plan, the execution of all revenue generation and residential phasing activities for the community, while also overseeing all aspects of advertising and marketing initiatives.

“John has a proven track record in building comprehensive strategies, a defined sales process, and a disciplined approach to ensure success in highly competitive markets. We are thrilled to have him lead our sales and marketing team as we introduce a new, more refined and relaxed lifestyle to Naples,” said Syd Kitson, President and CEO of Kitson & Partners.

Hillman’s success has largely been defined by creating real value for property owners from the first meeting all the way through move-in by listening and paying attention to every detail. Hallmarks of Hillman’s approach to marketing real estate include the blending of technology and old-fashioned “high touch” service. His broad experience will enable opportunities for Talis Park to build on the proven success of the Naples real estate market and expand the community’s offerings.

Talis Park is introducing a bold new vision for Naples luxury living with a re-imagined clubhouse and three new neighborhoods that will offer an inviting network of meandering trails and pathways leading to the village center. Overlooking the water or acclaimed Norman & Dye golf course, three refreshingly distinct home collections built by the area’s top builders will be unveiled to embody the new spirit of the community, with free-flowing indoor/outdoor living spaces, beautiful views, and prices ranging from $700,000 to $2 million plus.

Located at 16990 Livingston Road, Talis Park is poised to become one of Florida’s premier luxury golf and residential destinations.
