(MS) -- For many Americans, the dream of a vacation or full-time home in Florida continues to be one that is very much alive. Year round warm weather, unlimited games of golf, great shopping and activities ... Florida offers just as many treasures today as it did to the explorers that founded the state.

Often, the question isn't whether Florida is the right location, but which part of Florida? Recently named one of the top 10 fastest growing cities in the nation, Port St. Lucie is quickly becoming the answer.

Located at the southern end of mainland St. Lucie County, in the southeastern part of the state, Port St. Lucie has been called the Jewel of the Treasure Coast. More than 300 years ago, several Spanish galleons carrying gold and silver are thought to have shipwrecked off the southeastern shore of Florida, dumping their vast treasures into the ocean. And the Treasure Coast was born.

The next question that needs to be answered is "custom built home or resale"? Often a matter of personal choice, there are benefits to both. However, many home buyers are now choosing to have their dream home custom built, enabling them to select the layout and features they want exactly.

"We're finding that customers have very definite ideas of what they want in their dream homes," said Andrew Nadalin, President of Pace 2000 Inc., a leading custom home builder in Port St. Lucie. "They've waited 'til just the right time to make that dream come true, and they don't want to compromise the image they have in their mind of what their ultimate home will feature. Sometimes they come to us with a lot already chosen, other times we help them find just the right lot ... but they always have definite ideas about what is going on the property. We work with them to achieve those goals."

Mr. Nadalin believes it's important to look for a builder that can deliver hands-on experience, dedication and commitment to the project and have as much passion for fulfilling the quest for the dream home as the customer does.

"Since 1980, we've been the Treasure Coast's trusted leader for building luxury custom homes because these are the qualities at the heart of every Pace 2000 home," he says. "We built our reputation one house at a time, and each is backed by the Pace promise of innovative design and quality craftsmanship. Our secret is simple yet sincere: build each home as if it were your own. It's a philosophy we've taken to heart for 30 years."
