Jacob Garza

An Industry Leader with a Heart for the People He Serves

Jacob Garza, Sr. is a self-made software and real-estate entrepreneur. He founded his first company at the age of 26 and was the sole shareholder with more than 100 employees. Within the following five years, he founded two more businesses that he has successfully sold – the last one in 2007.

In 2008, Jacob made the move from Dallas to San Antonio. Taking a few years off to spend time with family, he got into the real estate industry in 2012. Founding REEP Equity was a natural progression from his experience in property management—and he hasn’t looked back. Since 2012, REEP Equity has bought, sold, and managed over 5,550 Multifamily Housing units. Currently, REEP Equity has over 22 Multifamily properties, 4,044 units and more than $720 million in its portfolio. In addition to REEP Equity, REEP Residential was created as the in-house property management company.

Over the years, REEP Equity has also received numerous industry awards, including:

Get to Know Jacob

Today, Jacob’s ultimate goal within REEP Equity is to take care of the tenants and employees under his care. He knows that in order for them to be their best selves, they need to feel safe and supported. For the tenants, it’s all about taking care of them—the ultimate end-user. And for the employees, giving them a safe space to succeed AND fail while also helping them with personal and professional growth. Jacob believes when people are given what they need to thrive, they will exceed expectations. Providing people with what they need to succeed is also a core component of how he coaches others to become successful in multifamily real estate.

When it comes to what excites Jacob most about the real estate industry is that it’s horizontal in nature—you can come from anywhere and learn it, which also means it’s fun for him to teach. Not to mention, unlike tech and many other industries, real estate can live forever—it’s a legacy business. Empowering the next generation of real estate investors is something that gets Jacob out of bed in the morning.
