Rivus is a leading construction and real estate investment company based in Charlotte, N.C. Founded by Charlotte natives, Andres and Juan Fernando Gomez, the family-owned and operated company has a rich history and deep-rooted passion for real estate that can be traced back to their home country of Colombia.
From an early age spending their youth in Colombia, Andres and Juan treasured the relationship they had with their grandfather, Fernando Rivera, a prevalent real estate developer and investor in their hometown. He ignited their interest in entrepreneurship and real estate development and investment and more so, the desire to be leaders and trusted partners in their community.
Upon returning to Charlotte to attend the University of North Carolina, both Andres and Juan embarked on a journey that led to the founding of Rivus. To ensure they could be trusted experts, together they acquired well-versed knowledge and experience in real estate from working in mortgage loans and public insurance to acquiring a general contracting license and realtor/broker license.
As they head into their 10th anniversary, the Gomez brothers continue to buy residential properties in the neighborhoods near Uptown and are proud to be general contractors for notable investors in Charlotte. To date, they have been involved in over 100 residential properties and continue to identify and qualify new investment opportunities daily, including expanding their investment portfolio into commercial real estate building and development.
