Combined, our team has completed over $1.75 billion in public/private developments over the past 20 years.

Mr. Garcia, through his stops at several Wall Street investment banks during his
career, brings a unique background to assist with the development and financial viability of a hospitality project. His work with several sectors and asset classes
