Company Profile


IBI specializes in the design and development of market rate and affordable multi-family and senior communities. With the assistance of its in-house design team, IBI continuously strives to develop a high quality, sustainable product that is indistinguishable from market-rate multi-family communities in surrounding neighborhoods.

IBI locates prime real estate in good locations, develops the property, and designs and constructs an innovative product that will be attractive to potential residents in order to deliver a better-than-market rate return on investment for our investors.

We are principally engaged in real estate investment, development, and construction throughout Texas, New Mexico and Arizona. IBI and its principal have been actively involved in multi-housing development since 1978.
