JUNCTION CITY, Kansas – June 5, 2008 – Jeff Burton, president of American Dream Development, has been invited to speak at PCBC™ 2008, the homebuilding industry’s premier tradeshow and conference, in San Francisco later this month.

Burton will speak on a panel entitled, “New Ruralism: Building Homes and Mixed-Use Communities in Small Town America.” It will be held June 26 at 3:00 p.m. in the Moscone Center.

New Ruralism is a growing trend towards building sustainable and mixed-use communities in small town America. This emerging real estate market offers tremendous opportunities such as pent-up demand, affordable land prices and less resistance to development.

“As major urban and suburban housing markets have become saturated and over-priced, developers and investors are looking for new places to build homes,” said Burton, whose firm consults with real estate companies across the country that want to break into rural markets.

“But how do you find a rural market primed for development and overcome the substantial barriers to entry that range from limited buyer markets and lack of experienced contractors to entrenched local politics and suspicion of outsiders?” Burton said.

The New Ruralism panel includes four real estate development experts:

     • Jim Burton, President, American Dream Development
     • Linda J. Huls, Director of RealFoundations, Denver
     • Jim Sharp, President American Communities, Inc.
     • Brandon Clements, Land Acquisition Director, Toll Brothers
     • Moderator: Genevieve Anton, Anton Communications

The panel will discuss who should and who shouldn’t enter the rural real estate market. It will explore the potential risks and opportunities, as well as making the right choices when there’s little market research to be found. In short, attendees will learn what you must know to break into a local housing market.

Held each summer in San Francisco, PCBC draws over 26,000 residential builders, developers, architects, financiers, product manufacturers, and consultants from the industry. Tradeshow Week magazine has honored PCBC as one of the largest and fastest growing tradeshows in North America. For more information on PCBC 2008, please visit
