About Us

Since 1997, American National Investments, Inc. (ANI) has focused on development, investment, and management of innovative real estate ventures from building or repositioning major retail and mixed-use office and multifamily residential projects, to revitalizing urban neighborhoods through historic preservation of neglected downtown buildings.

Starting in 2012, Gina Champion-Cain, ANI’s founder, took the neighborhood focus one step further with forays into the region’s hospitality and lifestyle markets, creating a handful of fine, local eateries, retail establishments, an apparel brand, and charming vacation beach rentals that today generate jobs and tourism, bring people together, and proudly anchor and sustain thriving urban and beach communities.
