HOW WE STARTED
The experience that led to the INT Edge

Hugh L Caraway. Jr. and Irma Caraway formed Internacional in 1993 to acquire, develop, and manage apartment communities for its own account 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 leadership of Internacional still approaches 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.

"I am very proud to honor the disciplines and milestones that put Internacional where it is today. We still have to adapt and be innovative as this business moves forward, and it’s awesome that we have the culture that promotes it.

How we grew up? Well net-net, we are operators to the core. Our every approach is as unique as the real estate we manage. From purchase orders to zero toleration of temporary labor, our standards of procedure revolve around a true owner mindset. We grew up in the business as owners as far back as 1993. so whether we are managing for a partnership or a client, the approach is location and bottom-line driven. We have lots of tenure in our company, so the leadership executes for results Internacional has achieved time and time again."
