Merrill Kaliser is the CEO of US REOF, which is located in Dallas. However, the company will have a satellite office in Houston.

Merrill and his team developed proprietary software, six sigma enhanced processes and procedures for the company in order to efficiently target, acquire, rehab and lease assets.
