We focus on projects which firmly embed “triple bottom line” principles as a core part of our real estate investment strategy and decision-making process. What distinguishes us is a proactive intent to deploy capital that generates risk-adjusted market-rate returns while creating social or environmental value, or both. We take our work and our play seriously. We live in the Pacific Northwest by choice.

Todd Tanner, Communications Director
When he's inside four walls, Todd manages all the communications for HT. When he's not, you can usually find him on the water or in the woods.
"Passion. That’s what it’s about. That’s what separates us from everyone else. We love being out on the water. It’s a genetic imperative burned into our soul, it’s a direct, no-detours conduit to nature, it’s a subliminal, primitive urge that leads, slowly, surely, perhaps unfathomably, towards that rarest of moments when, no matter our failings or our personal limitations, we brush up against grace."
His writing has appeared via a number of respected media platforms, including Forbes, Sporting Classics, Field & Stream and Hatch Magazine.
He is also a columnist and senior editor for Sporting Classics magazine and runs Conservation Hawks, a nonprofit dedicated to passing on a healthy natural world to our kids and grand kids.
