About Us

Based in Austin, The Ruiz Companies provides brokerage services and real estate financing for businesses and communities throughout Texas who require funds from other sources. This is achieved through the layering of public and private dollars to put together the best financing package for you. We have contracts with the Texas Certified Development Company in developing and structuring SBA 504 loans for businesses across the state.

All of these programs involve a multitude of regulations and restrictions with application deadlines and funding cycles. Our experience and knowledge of these programs presents clients with alternative options in securing funding for their projects.
