Within the past decade, Scott DeCain and Paul Larner of Bald Eagle Partners have found an immense amount of success in the Southeastern Region of the US in acquiring and developing land. It was at the tail end of the real estate depression that this duo began their careers as entrepreneurs. Among many of their projects is Rice Hope Plantation, the location of our 2019 Savannah St. Jude Dream Home. Bald Eagle Partners generously donated the home site for our ‘Dream Home’.
In a recent interview, DeCain said after receiving an undergraduate degree in Economics and a graduate degree in Business, concentrating in finance and entrepreneurship, he entered the corporate world where he worked for thirty years. While his education was extremely important, it was those years working in a large corporate setting that truly laid the groundwork for what he and Paul do today as business partners.
“[Paul and I] have known each other for thirty years. That long history eliminates the day-to-day need for office needs. Our headquarters though is in Savannah.”
DeCain said that while the two were eager to begin their business venture in 2007, it wasn’t until 2009 when they finally found the “perfect piece of land” in the residential US. The two men targeted ‘second tier’ cities such as Greenville, Charleston, and Panama City Beach. DeCain finds that these kinds of cities are far more superior in many respects and that overtime will be where people will want to live opposed to Atlanta and Charlotte. He finds that these locations are friendlier and have a great cost of living.
In talking about defining success, DeCain notes, “Yes, you need to be intelligent, that is always helpful, but even if you’re not the smartest person, a lot of it comes down to hard work, integrity, a little bit of luck, and having great work ethic and ambition. With that you can accomplish anything you want.”
Bald Eagle Partners is delighted to be able to donate to this charity and is grateful that Village Park Homes even initiated the campaign. DeCain commented that they are thrilled to be doing what they can to help St. Jude’s mission. They cannot wait for the day when the winner is announced, June 26, as it truly should go to a deserving person!
There is so much to be grateful for and Village Park Homes is thrilled to have this land development business working with us in completing this campaign! Our hope is to raise $675,000 to give to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
