“Celebrating 36 years of excellence Representing Owners Interests and providing a Return On Investment.”


Richard M. Donnelly began his career in the luxury home construction industry 36 years ago in Fairfield County, Connecticut. Having learned every trade first-hand, he is that rare developer who understands each aspect of the building industry on a master level. With over three decades of working knowledge and expertise, and a heightened design aesthetic, he has established R.O.I. Naples as a premier development company which identifies up-and-coming Naples neighborhoods and creates one-of-a-kind, architecturally-inspired custom homes for sale. Fully licensed and insured, R.O.I. Naples completed its first Naples project, a 6K square foot home on 1 full manicured acre at 581 Myrtle Road which won four Sand Dollar Awards (from the Collier Building Industry Association), two Aurora Awards (a 17-state competition) and sold fully furnished in 2018 for $4.75M. This project set a record-breaking price per square foot in the Pine Ridge neighborhood of Naples. Awards were achieved for Best Construction, Best Architecture, Best Interior Design, Best Interior Detailing, Best Outdoor Living, and Best Use of Specialty Wood. It was published in Florida Design Magazine with a 10-page feature article and was featured in vendor video segments and local television programming content.
