The Encore Homebuilders’ team has collectively delivered thousands of new homes and together they are eager to continue their significant contribution to the South Florida with their newest project, Aventura Isles. This 150-acre property is a rare gem of undeveloped land in the highly desirable and predominately built-out North Miami-Dade/South Broward area.

It is with a renewed focus that Encore Homebuilders is dedicated to providing quality new residences at maximum value to families who wish to become proud owners of their own Aventura Isles home.
