Since moving to South Florida in 1979, Jim and Marta Batmasian have invested in the region by acquiring residential and commercial properties.  Today, Investments Limited is the largest, privately-held, family-owned real estate company in the region.  Many of their most notable properties include Royal Palm Place, Fifth Avenue Shoppes, the Shops at University Park (formerly Plum Plaza) and more currently under renovation or slated for 2021.  Through their contributions to small business and community beautification, they have helped change the business landscape of the region.

In an effort to embrace local business and ingenuity, the Batmasian’s launched a new micro-grants program inviting businesses and entrepreneurs to apply, share their vision and mission, and how they will impact the community as a whole.
