Gap Investments

At Gap Investments, our mission is to bring people together to complete a fair and balanced transaction between those who need financing and those who want to invest.

Gap Investments has years of experience working with private lenders who specialize in investing in Costa Rica; with legal, marketing, and development expertise working to maximize their investment returns.

Since 2008, we are proud to say that we’ve helped many people achieve their goals with strategic financing options.

Pursuing a traditional bank loan can be highly time-consuming, and expensive, with double-digit interest rates, and require an enormous amount of paperwork. Private lenders will normally provide loans from 6 months to 3-year terms, filling the “gap” quickly and efficiently for qualified borrowers looking for short-term solutions.

Gap Investments has well-trained professional consultants and analysts acting in the best interest of borrowers and the investors we represent. The industry has changed significantly over the last decade, and Gap Investments has emerged as a conduit for you to access qualified investment opportunities.

Hello! I’m a former Vancouverite by the name of Lawsen Parker, an Operations Manager with Grupo Gap. Ensuring the development and implementation of efficient operations and cost-effective systems to meet the current and future needs of the organization.

I first moved to Costa Rica when I was 16 to study in a new environment. In the early 2010’s I started working in real estate and mortgage loaning business while I traveled around Costa Rica until my early 20s and obtained my permanent residency in Costa Rica. Afterward, I moved back to Vancouver, studied at UBC, and started building and restoring homes specializing in home and commercial renovations. In 2016 at 24, I moved to South America to pursue a marketing opportunity, which helped me to learn many aspects of the trade and how to market to a large audience effectively.

During my travels, I discovered that Costa Rica was the ideal spot to settle down and would be the best place to launch my new career. After extensive traveling around Costa Rica, I decided to reside in Escazu because of its proximity to the capital, the locals, the restaurants, the weather, and all the opportunity here.

My experience in the building industry and knowledge of Costa Rica are two of my most valuable advantages in assisting clients in finding the mortgage they need. I desire to help others fall in love with Costa Rica and relocate here the same way I have.
