Arise International Investments

Arise is an Irish Dallas-based real estate investment company. We source opportunities. Having one foot in Ireland and one in the US means we help investors make the most of all worlds. We understand the current Irish situation regarding investments and pensions, and we also have on-the-ground knowledge of the fast evolving and vibrant Texan real estate market.

We have identified a huge – and growing – demand for single family and multifamily properties in the Dallas and Forth Worth areas. Our model is simple. We find and purchase properties, upgrade them to perfect turnkey condition, put tenants in place and sell them to international investors who want a stable and secure passive income now and into the future.

We partner with the very best local property wholesalers, contractors, property management companies and financiers so that everything we do is polished, transparent and utterly professional. Your experience as an Arise investor is pleasant and easy. We look after all the details – the snag lists, the legal and physical nitty gritty – to ensure that your journey to purchase and beyond is prompt and clearly sign-posted at every step of the way. The income you secure through Arise is hands-free and truly 'passive'.

The North Texas area is alive with opportunity right now. Share in that bright future and invest in confidence with ARISE.
