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.

Currently, REEP Equity has over 23 Multifamily properties, 4,171 units and more than $714 million in its portfolio.
