Grupo Gap is the parent company of CRIE (Costa Rica Immigration Experts), Gap Real Estate, Gap Investments, and Gap Equity Loans.

Beginning in the early 1990s, Mr. Tellier secured finance totaling hundreds of millions of dollars in Canada. When he first arrived in Costa Rica, he discovered that you could not borrow money unless you were a permanent resident. Realizing there was a gap, he began helping with loans in the early 2000s, providing consultant services. After learning about Costa Rica’s enormous potential, Mr. Tellier made the decision to settle here permanently. So, he began his residency process with Johanna Alveraz, which resulted in a collaboration and the founding of CRIE. After that, Gap Real Estate and Gap Investors developed inevitably over time. Relocate CR was founded due to high demand from customers who needed assistance with the Costa Rica relocation procedure.


Lawsen Tellier, a dynamic force in Costa Rica’s financial and real estate sectors, embarked on his professional journey in his late teens, accompanying his father, the founder of Gap, to intricate loan site inspections.

With over a decade of experience, Lawsen has mastered the meticulous 18-step process at Gap Equity Loans, ensuring quality and security for private investors, from initial vetting to ensuring accurate National Registry recordings. Simultaneously, Lawsen has been a pivotal figure at GAP Real Estate, leveraging his understanding of property valuation and legal intricacies.

His dual roles have given him a unique vantage point, bridging the gap between loan lending and real estate, making him an invaluable asset to the GAP conglomerate. As he continues to shape the future of GAP’s diverse ventures, Lawsen’s journey from his late teens to a seasoned professional in Costa Rica stands as a testament to his dedication, expertise, and the legacy of the GAP companies.
