Texas' Cordillera Ranch selects Buffalo Communications for PR work

VIENNA, Va. -- Buffalo Communications - a global leader in golf, sport and lifestyle marketing communications - has been selected to spearhead a comprehensive golf and real estate public relations program for Cordillera Ranch, the private community outside San Antonio and minutes from historic Boerne, Texas.

The award-winning, 8,700-acre property has been consistently ranked among America's and Texas' best since its 1997 opening. A Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course hallmarks the 1,100-lot community, complemented by six other lifestyle-based clubs: rod and gun, river, equestrian, spa-athletic, social and tennis/swim.

"With its influence in luxury golf and real estate, Buffalo is a coveted partner with a strategic and tactical understanding of our market position," says Charlie Hill, Vice President of Development of Cordillera Ranch. "We have a success story to tell, and are proud to actively engage an affluent audience about life at Cordillera Ranch."

Within the past year, the development has realized a 38-percent increase in lot sales with 35 homes currently under construction. Membership commitments continue to buck national and regional trends, growing steadily since completion of its exclusive 40,000 square-foot clubhouse in 2009. More than 650 families reside on the coveted rolling land.

"Cordillera Ranch has shown brilliance navigating economic uncertainty by staying true to its vision," says Rich Katz, Managing Director of Buffalo Communications. "Ownership's commitment to ensure all elements of the community are first-class yields significant opportunities for growth."

Set in the dramatic bluffs and ravines of Texas Hill Country amid mesquite bosques, live oaks and limestone canyon walls, Cordillera Ranch features a wide array of residential options including 0.25-acre villas, 1-acre golf course home sites and 10-acre estates. Golf-front, hillside and valley views provide homeowners a multitude of choices and price points from $125,000 (home sites) to $3,000,000+ (custom homes).

Access to the highly-ranked Boerne Independent School District, the kid-friendly outdoor pool complex, fishing or kayaking on the Guadalupe River, and an array of fun and educational programming make Cordillera Ranch the ideal home for young families. Tennis, an equestrian center and horse trails, spa, shooting 10-station sporting clays course and club dining appeal to a wide range of members and residents.

World-class shopping at the 4.5 million square-foot "The Shops at La Cantera" is an easy 20-minute drive while the arts, sports and entertainment offerings of downtown San Antonio sit 45 minutes south. Just 10 minutes west is quaint Boerne, filled with chic shops, rustic cafes and boutique galleries.
