Mid-2008 marked the start of a sales boom for 20-year-old Jon Kohler & Associates' large undeveloped land tracts. The Tallahassee firm's 2010 business topped $195 million in sales. The firm last year led the largest brokered land deal in the Southeast since 2008, the sale of 124,000 acres once owned by International Paper. The land, much of it in north Florida, is mostly pine plantation and is spread across seven states. Internet marketing is bringing global attention to environmental treasures in south Georgia and north Florida, says Kohler, citing the sale of Deep Creek Plantation, a 2,144-acre Kohler-listed property on the Suwannee River, to a buyer from Beijing. In another major transaction, the 962-acre Dickerson Bay near Panacea was purchased by a philanthropist.
