The REME Team

Our Leadership

Daniel Blanco

Founder & CEO


Daniel Blanco co-founded REME with Philip and Alex in late 2014. His background in real estate evolved from a residential energy inspection start-up he founded while studying Business Administration through the Bauer College of Business at the University of Houston. After selling the company just a few short years later, he was inspired by the growing communities around him and immediately began a new career in real estate development. Daniel is the CEO of REME Companies and primarily leads the acquisition and operational activities within the company.

Philip Carey

Founder & CFO


Growing up in London Ontario, Canada, Philip was enamored with construction at an early age, as his grandfather owned a local hardware store and fencing company. Coming down to Texas for his collegiate years, Philip played baseball for Texas A&M while earning his degree from Mays Business School at Texas A&M University in 2009. Looking for opportunities outside of athletics, Phil joined forces with Daniel and Alex to start up a real estate development group. He is currently the CFO of REME Companies and oversees the capital arm of the organization.

Alex Wilson

Founding Member


Alex is another co-founder of REME Homes. Raised in West Virginia, Alex grew up playing the sport of baseball from early childhood. His collegiate pursuit lead him to South Carolina where he and Phil met and became best friends. Transferring to Texas A&M University together, Alex was fortunate enough to find his big break in the MLB. From winning a World Series with the Boston Red Sox in 2013, to traveling the nation playing the sport he dreamed of as a kid, Alex is still grinding it out as a professional athlete. Once his days on the pitching mound are over, Alex looks to pursue a career in real estate brokerage and help take REME Homes to the next level.
