Napoli Group to represent new luxury community

The Napoli Group of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Nevada Properties has been selected to lead real estate and lot sales for homes within Southern Highlands Golf Club’s newest community, Olympia Ridge Estates. This marks the first time Southern Highlands has introduced a community dedicated exclusively to contemporary architectural design, offering hillside lots with sweeping views of the Las Vegas Valley.

Upon completion, Olympia Ridge Estates will be an expansion of Southern Highlands’ renowned community, with a unique topography including lakes, waterfalls and pine trees. Designed by award-winning architects and builders, each resident can custom design a home that complements the surroundings with fresh modern home designs.

“Launching Olympia Ridge Estates marks a milestone moment for Southern Highlands, introducing custom home lots that offer more than just a residence — but a gateway to unparalleled living,” said Frank Napoli, broker and owner of The Napoli Group with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Nevada Properties. “My goal is to continue fostering the community’s growth and nurturing its close-knit, welcoming atmosphere.”

Southern Highlands Country Club, known for its Tuscan-inspired architecture, is set within a secure, 24-hour guard-gated development. It features an 18-hole golf course and one of the most elite golf memberships in the valley. Residents can enjoy restaurants, a wellness facility, pool, parks and trails.

Napoli has an extensive background in real estate and regularly ranks in the top 1 percent of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices sales nationwide.

He is joined at Southern Highlands by Trent Walford, a prominent real estate executive within The Napoli group, who has been an active Southern Highlands community member for more than a decade and sits on its advisory board.

“Being a member of this community, I can see how special and rare it is,” Walford said. “It is more than a business to me, but rather a lifestyle. I believe our team will help change the landscape of Southern Highlands, showcasing homes that are rarely seen in the Las Vegas market.”

Olympia Ridge Estates’ prime location offers easy access to major attractions and amenities and is within minutes of the Las Vegas Strip, Harry Reid International Airport and Las Vegas Raiders practice facility in addition to a variety of retail shopping options.

Located at 1490 Center Crossing Road in Summerlin, the two-story building encompasses over 30,000 square feet of coworking space designed to unify individual teams and client relationships.

From the spacious layout to the furnishings, it is intended to break down barriers and encourage collaboration. We are creating a welcoming environment where agents can interact, engage with clients and seamlessly integrate their professional and personal lives.”

In addition to its strategic and modern design, the new campus provides views of the iconic Las Vegas Strip, along with conference rooms, private offices and a dedicated training center. The layout accommodates current agents, with careful consideration made for future expansion.

“The combination of visionary leadership and a dynamic office space undoubtedly positions us uniquely within the real estate market, enabling us to better serve our clients,” Reierson said. “Our enterprising branch leaders Amanda Lopez, Kristen Makhathini and Janice Higdon are leading development and operations.”

Strategically located within the thriving Summerlin community, the new office is close to key landmarks such as TPC Summerlin and Las Vegas Golf Courses, Summerlin Hospital and Medical Center and Downtown Summerlin.

The new space was developed in collaboration with Stable Development, a longtime development partner with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Nevada Properties.
