MCALLEN, RGV – Houston EB5 is showing support for the Empresario RGV group.

The Empresario group, also known as Bi-COOLtural, held a meet and greet where 47 members of the group from across South Texas met at NIU in McAllen.

The event was hosted by Jesus and Rosario Gonzalez, owners of NIU, who have become leaders in the community. The Mexican Consul in McAllen, Eduardo Bernal Martinez, was in attendance to show his support for the group as well.

Houston EB5 is a subsidiary of DC Partners, an award-winning real estate development and investment firm with the financial strength and expertise to complete assets of all sizes and types.

The company was founded in 2010 to help international investors gain permanent United States residency in return for making a qualified real estate investment. Certified by United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) as an EB-5 Regional Center, Houston EB5 has more than 25 years of real estate experience.

Emilio Guzmán, chief investor relations officer and executive vice president for Houston EB5 presented to the group. “Our track record of 100 percent approval rating of EB5 applications in all our projects through the State of Texas makes Houston EB5 the preferred Regional Center in Latin America,” Guzmán said.

Mark Hanna, South Texas representative for Houston EB5, is assisting foreign nationals in South Texas. “Our goal in South Texas is to give families an opportunity to locate in the Rio Grande Valley and have a solid EB5 investment. The EB5 program allows families to work, attend school and travel back and forth to Mexico as needed,” Hanna said.
