Garcia Properties was founded by Jenifer & Ivan Garcia in 1999 with one driving desire -- to leave whatever they touched a little better.
Garcia Properties had humble beginnings & the kind of stories you share around a campfire. After a slew of miserable jobs & a failed get-rich-quick conference (ha), it was a simple 80-page book on rehabbing mobile homes that sparked a vision. After a short stint in the mobile home industry, the Garicas began rehabbing 4-family homes in South City — one at a time — with care, precision & a deep-seated love for the neighborhood they called home...& people quickly took note. One 4-family led to another, one skill led to the next & before long both sides of the family had packed their bags & moved to St. Louis to join the upstart business.
21 years later, Garcia Properties, Garcia Mortgage Team, Garcia Insurance Advisors, Garcia Construction & Garcia Property Management still operate with that same attention to detail, care & love for the city.
“We don’t have a business plan, we don’t have a motto. What we do is wake up, work our asses off, do right by people, go to bed, repeat.”
It’s that simple mantra, along with an interwoven passion to make their neighborhood a better place & St. Louis a better city, that continues to drive all facets of the Garcia brand.
