The common thread underlying every York Real Estate Deal is Land.

York Developments is a family-owned Real Estate Development Company based in Hattiesburg, MS founded by Bennett V. York.

Land touches every human being on the planet and land has been the focus of the York Family for over 45 years. With our beginnings rooted in Timberland, the York Team has left its mark and signature on thousands of acres and millions of square feet across nearly every Real Estate sector. Each and every York deal sprung from dirt. Each project represented a blank canvas to create and build beautiful places and spaces for thousands of families to live, work, shop and store.
