About Us

Since 1988, Newport Development Corp. has successfully delivered over 3,000 single family lots and condominium units to the real estate community. Newport Development Corp. was started by Raymond C. Leffler and has continued to grow. Land development projects have included developments in the Racine, Kenosha, Walworth and Waukesha counties.

Earning his real estate brokers license in 1984, Ray originally began work with another local real estate firm before purchasing a real estate franchise office of his own. After selling that company, Ray formed a home construction company that exists to this day (see the link for Newport Builders). In addition, Ray started his own real estate company and land development company. Today, all of those companies continue to provide quality real estate services for buying or selling an existing home, constructing a new home, or providing just the right home site for new construction.

Married for over 30 years, Ray and his wife Cathy have three children, one is an attorney, one is a nurse and one in college!  When he’s not working, Ray enjoys reading, fishing and traveling.
