In addition to real estate, we also began a construction arm to our business and built multiple beachfront homes.  See our testimonials to learn more.

 

Construction Ecuador

 

We eventually designed, financed and built our first multi-unit development, Ensenada del Pacifico, in the beautiful beach town of San Clemente.
