Who We Are

Our Management Team



Since the beginning of 2005, not only the Dominican Republic but also many countries in America were invaded by a large number of real estate tourism projects. This offer arose based on projections of low interest rates and a decline in capital markets, which would translate into a great appetite for real estate investment. The projection was fulfilled, and there was a worldwide voracity for this type of investment, resulting in many people generating significant profits by selling their units long before they were constructed and received.


The financial crisis of 2008 greatly influenced this development, causing real estate sales to drop drastically and leaving property owners with properties that incurred significant monthly costs. At this historical moment, the need for service companies that could cover both areas—efficient Condominium or Project Administration and the Marketing of their units with a Rental Pool system—became «imminent».


Already being a highly prestigious company in Condominium Administration and Hospitality Solutions: Advisors and/or Consultants for Hotel Developments, CAPEMAR decided to make a strategic alliance, combining both specialties and forming a company capable of exploiting this new tourism modality in the country: a Condo-Hotel Operator.
