Hugh L. Caraway, Jr. and Irma Caraway formed Internacional Realty in 1993 to acquire, develop, and manage apartment communities for its own account. Shortly thereafter, Internacional Realty developed its first project, a 160-unit luxury community in San Antonio named La Calera. The original corporate office was nothing more than the upstairs loft of an apartment community’s clubhouse and consisted of Hugh, Irma and an accounting clerk. Together they applied decades of real estate knowledge and experience to build a successful, dynamic organization that has since grown exponentially and includes apartment communities in major metropolitan areas across the nation. The corporate office relocated to the scenic riverwalk area of downtown San Antonio in 1998. Internacional Realty evolved into a group of companies whose disciplines include acquisitions and development, management, and investment. The collaborative effort of the companies, all under the umbrella of Internacional Realty, creates a result greater than the sum of its parts.
The principals of the Internacional Realty Group of Companies still approach the business the same way they did back in the infancy of the organization, with attention to details, hard work, and pride in a job well done.
