Faulkner 100: Seven Point Lake latest Davis Real Estate venture

Posted: June 30, 2014 - 8:17am

Daniel Davis, of Davis Real Estate LLC, has seen the construction of one neighborhood after another on his family’s property and is working to establish another unique community living experience in the Seven Point Lake Subdivision just South of Vilonia. 

Daniel grew up in North Little Rock with four brothers. They all started working on his family’s farm and the other family business, Davis Rubber Company in Little Rock, from the time they could hold a cowpoke, ride a horse or patch a tire.   

Daniel’s real estate education began with his father, H.S. Davis, who bought a 4,500-acre plot near Mayflower from his brother’s estate in 1972. In 1976, Daniel began working in construction, clearing right of ways and building roads in the Mayflower Heights Subdivision in Southern Faulkner County. 

“I remember driving a bulldozer pulling a 10-ton roller up and down Crestview Road hill,” he said. “The roller outweighed the dozer and wanted to swap ends on the way down, every time.” 

The subdivision started out with one road and about 10 residents. It has since grown to include more than 300 dwellings and 900 residents. The residents of Mayflower Heights came together and changed the name to Pine Village, he said. Daniel was instrumental in forming the Pine Village Volunteer Fire Department and became chief, where he served for 15 years.

Daniel met his wife, Judy Taylor of Conway, and married in 1978. They have lived and raised their two sons Alex and Chris Davis in the Pine Village Community. Alex works at Acxiom and Chris is a licensed construction contractor. Daniel and Judy have been blessed with seven grandchildren.

Daniel obtained his Arkansas Real Estate Broker’s license in 1979 and has sold real estate since then, beginning with lot sales and building houses in Pine Village and Davis Ranch Estates, Overland Park and now Seven Point Lake.

The Davis Family wanted to create a quality lifestyle and value not found in most tract subdivisions. Seven Point Lake at Davis Ranch is a 320-acre gated community surrounding a 22-acre lake with a paved waterfront-jogging path as the focal point of the neighborhood. 

Daniel said if a homeowner was to take one lap around the lake it would equal one mile. He’s calling it the “Seven Point Lake 2K.” 

The master plan for Seven Point Lake provides for a series of identifiable housing clusters of single-family lots. 

Walking and jogging trails are planned to connect the community park, with the lakefront and the green space running throughout the community. 

The lake is being designed as a premiere fishing lake with input from the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission on construction of fish habitats.

Daniel said the Game and Fish Commission was consulted to make sure the lake had the right ratio of blue gill, bream and crappie, bass and catfish. 

Seven Point Lake Community features all underground city utilities, plus fiber optic phone and 24/7 security cameras. 

Daniel’s daughter-in-law Kristine obtained her real estate license in 2012 and placed her license with Davis Real Estate LLC. Both are Realtors and would be proud to help you with all of your real estate needs.
