KYLE A. SANDERS, PRESIDENT
Licensed Real Estate Broker
As President of Sovereign Land Company, Kyle Sanders oversees all facets of the firm’s business, including property acquisition, market analysis, due diligence, financial analysis, product design, entitlements, project financing, asset management, and strategic planning. Over the course of his career, Kyle has been responsible for the sale of over 4,000 acres of land throughout the southeastern U.S. as well as the entitlement, development, and disposition of approximately 6,000 building lots to the largest national and regional home building companies such as Ashton Woods Homes, Beazer Homes, David Weekley Homes, D.R. Horton, KB Home, K. Hovnanian Homes, Lennar Homes, Maronda Homes, Mattamy Homes, Meritage Homes, M/I Homes, NVR/Ryan Homes, Richmond American Homes, Ryland Homes, Surrey Homes, Taylor Morrison, and Toll Brothers.
Kyle began his career in Dallas, Texas, in 1994 as a land development manager for U.S. Home Corporation. The following year, he moved to Central Florida to oversee the development of U.S. Home’s golf course communities.
In 1999, he advanced to Cambridge Homes as Vice President of Land Acquisition and Development, where he ran all of the land activity for the company in Orlando, Florida, and Charlotte, North Carolina. He then helped facilitate the sale of the company to K. Hovnanian Enterprises in 2005.
Two years later, Kyle left Hovnanian to run Hanover Capital Partners, a real estate development and investment firm, where he managed a $100,000,000 real estate portfolio and sold over 400 homesites during the real estate downturn.
In 2011, Kyle began to see that lenders were becoming overwhelmed with their real estate portfolios and needed help with the strategic disposition of their land assets, so he formed Sovereign Land Company to address that need. Since then, he has worked with several banks, including Wells Fargo, Fifth Third Bank, Suntrust Bank, and Beal Bank to help evaluate and sell their real estate assets.
Kyle earned a Master of Science in Land Development and a Bachelor of Architecture and Environmental Design from Texas A&M University. He is an active member of the Urban Land Institute and International Council of Shopping Centers. In addition, he is currently serving on the City of Winter Park Board of Code Enforcement.
