solid legacy shapes strong future

Core Property Capital is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia with an office in Naples, Florida. The firm is led by a very well capitalized group of seasoned real estate professionals with significant experience in retail, multi-family, office and hospitality product types. This broad range of experience helps the team as it analyzes the complete scope of each investment. In early 2008, the firm’s principals made a strategic decision to divest most of their real estate holdings in order to be well capitalized for future deals. The decision has left the firm with no legacy issues and the ability to be forward looking.


Tom is widely known as a pioneer of database marketing. His privately held company, Customer Development Corporation (CDC), specialized in database management and marketing for financial institutions and other various companies around the world. In 1987, CDC was honored by Inc. Magazine as the 8th fastest growing privately held company in the country. Tom, who is credited worldwide with many technical and creative innovations in the database marketing industry, also received the coveted “High-Tech Entrepreneur of the Year” award by Entrepreneur Magazine. Tom sold CDC in November of 1998 when he and Carol and their youngest daughter moved to Naples where Tom established Lund Capital Group, a private commercial real estate company that has holdings in various regions across the U.S.

In addition to Tom’s business interests, he and his wife Carol are very active philanthropists. Carol was on the Board of Trustees at Seacrest Country Day School, served on the NWWF Grant Committee, and continues to be involved with both St. John’s Church and Barron Collier High School, where their daughter attends as a senior. Education and its delivery has always been a passion for the Lunds. They believe that learning should be, “fun for children as well as fascinating in order to engage them throughout their lives.” Their philosophy has been that “every child is uniquely gifted and it is the educator’s responsibility to build upon those gifts”. Because of this, the Lunds founded Praise and Leadership Schools (PALS) based in Peoria, Illinois, which creates a positive foundation in each child and the emphasis on learning is to make each child feel special and to find his/her gifts. The Lunds are joyful in the amount of money and dedication that their fellow Trustees and others have raised through the Naples Winter Wine Festival that has been channeled into impacting the lives of many underserved children in Collier County.
