Grupo Gap is the parent company of Relocate CR, Gap Real Estate, Gap Investments, Gap Equity Loans, and CRIE – Costa Rica immigration experts.

Beginning in the early 1990s, Mr. Tellier secured finance totaling hundreds of millions of dollars in Canada. When he first arrived in Costa Rica, he discovered that you could not borrow money unless you were a permanent resident. Realizing there was a gap, he began helping with loans in the early 2000s, providing consultant services. After learning about Costa Rica’s enormous potential, Mr. Tellier made the decision to settle here permanently. So, he began his residency process with Johanna Alveraz, which resulted in a collaboration and the founding of CRIE. After that, Gap Real Estate and Gap Investors developed inevitably over time. Relocate CR was founded due to high demand from customers who needed assistance with the Costa Rica relocation procedure.
