This last part of the campaign features Mark Hafnerfounder and CEO of $1 billion commercial real estate company HASTA Capital. HASTA Capital focuses on the investment, development and management of multi-family residential assets that are “purpose built” or designed to be inclusive communities of all tenants.
Founded in 2017, HASTA now has developments and properties in four countries. Hafner attributes the company’s rapid growth to attention to detail, a willingness to try new things, and a commitment to continually improving the customer experience. For example, Hafner and his family try to spend a week living in each property to see what’s missing that residents might need and appreciate, like a bench in a dog park.
Hafner also cites the company’s partnership with Walker & Dunlop, which funded HASTA’s first-ever deal and nearly 100% of its deals since then and has been with HASTA every step of the way.
“I want people to love where they live, and Walker & Dunlop always comes up with great ideas on how they can help, thinking proactively and outside the box to find ways to improve the things, both short-term and long-term,” Hafner commented. “They are an extension of the HASTA team and a true partner.”
“Mark has built a $1 billiona portfolio of 15 properties in just five years,” said Willy Walker, chairman and CEO of Walker & Dunlop. “It’s been a story of extreme growth differentiated by exceptional customer experience, and it’s a story of extreme vision and opportunity. We can’t wait to see what Mark and his team at HASTA do next.”
