About Us

Encore Global Investment Management, LLC was created to provide an EB-5 investment vehicle for accredited foreign nationals seeking to obtain permanent residency status in the United States.  Encore Global owns and operates 16 approved EB-5 Regional Centers.  These Regional Centers focus on developing and/or funding commercial real estate projects related to retail, hospitality, multi-family, restaurants, residential land development and office facilities. We have helped many families from places like China, India and Mexico to obtain their permanent residency status.

As subsidiary of Encore Enterprise, Encore Global has a proven track record of managing investments and facilitating green cards. We offer investment opportunities to foreign and domestic investors under the same terms and conditions.

Disclaimer: Not every investment is safe, not every investment in a regional center will ultimately result in green card status, and not every investment will produce a profit.

What We Do

When it comes to EB-5 real estate investment opportunities, Encore Global has four primary functions as part of its “life-cycle” program:

(1)  We source and analyze potential EB-5 real estate projects (involving multiple property types) across a wide variety of U.S. markets;
(2)  We source accredited foreign investors who want to invest in the U.S. real estate market;
(3) We manage and operate multiple USCIS-approved Regional Centers;
(4)  We manage and facilitate the foreign investor immigration process (the EB-5 Visa Program), including the filing of the I-526, I-485, and the I-829 petitions to the USCIS.  In other words, Encore Global helps each investor throughout the entire process.

Services we provide to our EB-5 investors

It is our duty to inform you about the entire EB-5 visa program. We accomplish this by providing you with a thorough understanding of EB-5 immigrant program benefits, requirements, and processes. You can trust us to:

  • Discuss all your investment opportunities and provide you with comprehensive answers to all your EB-5 questions in clear terms;
  • Support and guide you through the investment and EB-5 green card and permanent residency process;
  • Provide you with an immigration attorney who specialize in EB-5 investor visas;
  • Coordinate the immigration process to maximize your chances of receiving an EB-5 visa approval.
