Chuck Toops.

Vice President

C.C. "Chuck" Toops studied industrial engineering at the University of Houston and was a welding engineer for many years. As the leader of C and C Development, Chuck has years of experience in real estate construction and buying, developing and building projects ranging from a 200,000 sq. ft. office/warehouse, 5 strip shopping centers, 4 six-story office buildings, 3 office/warehouses and two 20,000 sq. ft. office/manufacturing facilities, as well as numerous homes from Houston to Austin to Ruidoso.
Locally in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico where he now resides, Chuck and his wife, Carol, purchased an ocean front condominium, in pre-construction, which was to be their retirement home. This move in the year 1998 awakened Chuck's love for the construction business once again and the rest is history. Shortly thereafter he became closely associated with the builder/developer of the Vista Romantica condominiums, a small luxury boutique development in the hills of "Amapas", a then budding neighborhood just south of town, and eventually bought out the developer to finish the project himself.
Since that time, Chuck has added to his resume the critically acclaimed and monetarily successful Villas de la Colina project – a group of 5 villas and 9 condominiums also located in the now thriving Amapas neighborhood of Puerto Vallarta.
Chuck now has begun the acquisition of many lots with the vision and foresight to design, develop and build a Master Planned Gated Community for Puerto Vallarta's North Amapas hillside neighborhood. This project, known as "Eden Hills", will be made up of several environmentally conscious condominium projects along with a boutique hotel, wedding chapel, restaurant, sports bar and tennis club. The Villas de la Colina II project currently under construction is the first development in Eden Hills, having begun in 2006 when he started excavation, flood control and foundation work in preparation for 3 towers, 2 pools, bar, spa and gym areas. The other Eden Hills projects are just around the corner with Chuck eagerly leading his extremely effective administrative and professional team, which he put together to assist him in these, his "retirement" endeavors.
All in all, Chuck is a formidable force in the Puerto Vallarta real estate and construction markets in the Amapas Region, has done business in Mexico for almost 40 years, and continues on in the field where his true passion lies – "Residential Development"
