Meet The Developer
Keith Lawrence is the Development Manager for Meybohm Development Company.
Keith has been a resident of Columbia County for 15 years. He has over 20 years of experience working in the engineering and development field. He graduated from Georgia Institute of Technology with a degree in Civil Engineering and is a licensed Professional Engineer. He previously worked designing residential communities. Keith also specializes in the planning of regional, public and private spaces. He brings his education and experience to developing top notch communities across the CSRA. He believes that the success of a neighborhood is in the details. He often says “People don’t notice the details….but they notice when they aren’t done”.
He brings such a high level of attention to detail to all of his neighborhoods. He has been working on Whispering Pines since 2008. The extensive amount of time it takes to go through the government channels is all consuming. Keith has a passion for preserving the natural beauty of the land. He believes in letting the land tell him how it wants to be developed. He does not agree with the theory of forcing as many home-sites on a piece of land as possible to increase revenue. Keith’s designs for his neighborhoods incorporate the beauty of the land. He uses the curves of the land to make a more appealing neighborhood which in turn create a neighborhood that residents will enjoy for countless years. It’s this respect for the land that led to the development and the success of the Pine Bluff Community. Keith feels sticking to these principals will make Whispering Pines an even better Community. Many of his developments incorporate wildlife corridors in an attempt to bring the Homeowners in touch with nature.
Whispering Pines is part of the “Champion Tract” of Land. Since 2008, Keith has been working on a plan to protect the natural hardwood creek bottoms and the stately yellow pines. The ultimate goal is to create a Residential community without destroying this tracts undeveloped natural beauty.
He believes in being hands on with his builder & sales teams to produce award winning communities. This involvement leads to a tightknit team that will provide the highest level of service to future home buyers and their families. He has worked developing builder relationships over the last 13 years to have the ability to become an expert in the construction field. This allows him to put together a solid set of building criteria for his builder teams to abide by, allowing homes to be constructed within strict parameters. Keith believes in product positing to protect the investments of future homeowners.
He has been closely involved in the development of Magnolia Glen, Riverwood Plantation, Blackstone, Canterbury Farms, Rhodes Farm, Pine Bluff and now the Whispering Pines Community. These are just to name a few; however, he has planned in excess of over 10,000 acres of land. He believes in bringing Augusta the best communities that earn local, regional & national recognition.
