Responsible Growth Alliance
The Responsible Growth Alliance (RGA) serves as a resource and an advocate for the real estate industry in San Antonio. Formed in 2002, members of the RGA work collaboratively to ensure continued job growth, quality of life and affordable housing.
This is done by educating our civic leaders and the public about the San Antonio real estate development industry’s positive economic impact. Scott Farrimond, with Farrimond, Bresnahan & Castillo, currently serves as chair.
An economic impact study is commissioned every 2-3 years. The most recent study in 2020 showed $38.2 billion dollars in economic activity. It also showed that it generates approximately 1/7 of the area’s economic output, employs over 143,000 people in the San Antonio area, has a payroll of $7.7B each year, and generates approximately $263M in tax revenue.
