Rancho Viejo developer Ted Trap originally owned River Bend in order to link Rancho to a raw water source from the Rio Grande River. River Bend development started in 1983 by Lou Falley, George Ketzenberg, and John Berryman. Originally established as a 9 hole course River Bend was expanded to a 18 hole Championship course in 1985.
In 2015 the Barnard Family purchased River Bend. The Barnard family has been a part of the Rio Grande Valley for many years as the owners of Coastal Realty. Coastal Realty is the largest volume, full service commercial real estate firm serving Cameron County. Since our inception in 1962, we have served the needs of our clients with one goal in mind, to provide the most comprehensive service with the most extensive market knowledge.
