At that time, Buena Vida’s occupancy was below 70% and annual net income was deep in the red. ITG, through Dan Carter and Blaine Barton, were able to stabilize occupany at 95% and enable Buena Vida to reposition and expand in 2008. With a waiting list of 50+, ITG is managing another expansion to include 24 cottages and a clubhouse.
