Megatel Homes, one of the largest builders of single-family homes in the North Texas Market, has named a street “ADISA Way” in a new subdivision in honor of the Alternative & Direct Investment Securities Association, a trade organization that represents the non-traded alternative and direct investment space. Megatel Homes funds its developments through private placements offered by its capital markets division, Megatel Capital Investment (MCI).
“ADISA has been instrumental in the growth of our capital markets division over the last several years and we wanted to do something meaningful to show our appreciation,” said Zach Ipour, co-founder of Megatel Homes and MCI.
MCI presented ADISA with the plaque at the association’s 2018 Annual Conference & Trade Show on October 10 before the conference’s keynote address featuring NBA legend Earvin “Magic” Johnson.
Johnson’s address was the eighth installment of Megatel’s Leadership Series and the fourth it has hosted in conjunction with an ADISA event. The Leadership Series features keynote speakers funded by Zach and Aaron Ipour personally with no funds taken from investor capital, began in 2017.
At last year’s ADISA conference, executive vice president and managing director Trey Hoppe hosted former President George W. Bush for his second question and answer session for the series.
Other speakers in the MCI Leadership series have included Kevin O’Leary of Shark Tank, NFL-Hall-of-Famers, Roger Staubach and Terry Bradshaw, and former New York City Mayor, Rudy Giuliani. The company noted that it plans to continue the series with additional speakers in the future.
Since 2006, Megatel Homes has completed more than 100 developments comprised of several thousand homes. The company currently has more than 100 communities and is spreading throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex.
