Importing money through S.M.A.R.T. Economic Development.

Allow us to introduce to you Kerrville, a city of 25,000, which is a stone’s throw away from the burgeoning growth of the Austin-San Antonio economic corridor, also referred to as the ‘The Next Great American Metropolis’ by Forbes Magazine.

"one of the wealthiest small towns in America."
