American Realty Group, founded by Danny Kuperman and Mervyn Blieden in 2003, specializes in the development and acquisition of retail centers in the Greater Houston Area.  ARG has developed over 450,000 SF and prides itself on having a very high rate of occupancy –  solely as the result of its site selection process and Tenant Rosters. We take satisfaction in strategically choosing the best locations in trade areas that have proven to be successful for retailers. As part of its current business strategy, ARG is working on diversifying its portfolio by going into different trade areas and attracting new retailers to its list of clients. It’s an exciting time to be in our business.

The Team


Danny Kuperman


Danny’s career in Houston started with his family’s business in the wholesale and retail jewelry sector.  He then co-owned and managed a surplus grocery store for seven years in a predominantly Hispanic area (Chimney Rock and Westpark).  This is where he gained his vast knowledge of the Hispanic market of Houston.  This has helped American Realty Group cement its presence in the Hispanic trade areas of Houston.

Danny spent his childhood years living in Chile, Israel and Argentina and speaks fluent Hebrew and Spanish.  Living in these various nations has given Danny an international perspective on culture and his family life.  He loves to travel with his family and his favorite pastime is watching his beloved Barcelona FC.

Additionally, Danny volunteers at Aishel House and hopes to be a part of that effort for many years to come.
