It all started with an accidental introduction to Batumi, and now our small family remodeling business has grown into a professional development company that builds and operates boutique aparthotels.

DISCOVERING GEORGIA

September 2013

David Ruebush, from Austin Texas USA and Nina Tretiakova from Kharkov Ukraine came to Batumi to spend some holiday time together and explore Georgia.

DOWN UNDER

November 2013

At that time David was working on an Internet project and needed to go to Australia for a few months of work, and of course they did a bit of sight seeing and exploration.

TURMOIL

March 2014

When they returned to Ukraine they found Russians were invading Crimea and killing thousands of Ukrainian citizens. David’s software business was very disrupted and they needed to find a safer place to live.

RETURN TO GEORGIA

March 2014

So, they returned to Georgia where they felt they could safely live and work for a temporary time until things calmed down in Ukraine.

MAMA

April 2014

But things didn’t calm down and it wasn’t long before Mama decided Georgia sounded nice and came to join them.

MAX & MAX

June 2014

Not long after, Nina’s brother Max and his wife arrived. And Max brought his friend, “big Max” from Ukraine and they started a small remodeling business, finishing black frame apartments for people.

FINISHING APARTMENTS

May 2015

And they kept finishing more and more black frame properties for people. Making tons of connections and establishing a reputation of doing high quality work.

GROWING BUSINESS

February 2016

And before too long the entire family was involved. We even started buying our own black frame properties and finishing them for resale and rent.

TOO MUCH TO HANDLE

September 2016

We had so many people asking us to finish their apartments and manage the daily renting that we couldn’t handle all the work with our tiny family team.

FIRST OFFICE

June 2017

We decided to open a small office, add 2 new “family members”, and call our business “Batumi Paradise”. Our plan was to help a few people invest in up to 10 properties our first year.

MORE AND MORE CLIENTS

September 2017

But the clients kept coming from all over the world. India, USA, Holland, United Kingdom, Australia, UAE, Saudi Arabia, and more. Very soon, we had helped people invest in over 70 properties!

MORE FAMILY MEMBERS

January 2018

We kept adding more and more members to our family. And next thing you know, we had a very professional, extremely skilled, highly educated, well connected team of real estate investing and management experts.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY

June 2018

By our 1st birthday we had grown to over 30 employees and had 4 projects under development resulting in over $10 Million USD in real estate investing activities.

MORE CLIENTS AND BIGGER PROJECTS

January 2019

Our long list of happy clients keeps growing and growing. And, we are expanding into bigger and bigger projects, such as Paul and Bénédicte’s Georgian Guest House and the newly announced Ruebush Gardens Hotel & Health Spa.
