Rider Land & Development LLC 

The successor company to Rider Land & Development Corporation founded in 1975 by Stuart L. Rider. The company’s original goal was to create profitable real estate properties for investors.  All of RL&D’s forty six projects have been joint ventures with investors’ capital. With only one exception, all the projects undertaken have been outstanding real estate investments.

The company’s average return to equity in the first eighteen months of a project creation has been consistently over 150% ROI (return on equity invested). Cash flows on retained investments have averaged well over the target rate of a 16% annual ROI. Projects sold upon completion (an average of twenty four to thirty months from the start of construction), have paid investors in excess of 300% ROI.

The company is located in Scottsdale, Arizona and specialized in real estate development, project management, commercial real estate consulting, neighborhood and community shopping centers, suburban office complexes and new community planning and development. The company now specializes in consultation and Expert witness projects.
