Holding degrees in both Civil Engineering and Quantitative Economics from Stanford University, Robert Hadley leads his family's third-generation development company, Hadley Properties - continuing a long history of both technical and real estate innovation.
Through his company, Robert has developed a broad range of innovative projects spanning residential, resort, office, hospitality, and industrial product types. The organization was the first to successfully employ the timeshare model in Hawaii and the first to build a structural steel high rise in Hawaii. Having completed a 251-resort-home development on a nine-hole executive golf course overlooking the Columbia River in Washington state in 2008, the organization is currently engaged in the brownfield redevelopment of one of the largest urban mine tailings sites in North America into what is Colorado Springs' first neo-traditional neighborhood community. In Honolulu, Robert's company has developed and continues to own, manage, and expand the highest-density multilevel office-industrial complex of its type in the country.
In 2009, in the wake of the banking crisis, Robert and a team of partners launched a new company, Builders Capital, to meet the growing need for private capital in the residential construction industry. Builders Capital is growing rapidly and, since that time, has lent small and midsize regional builders over $950M for the construction of new single-family homes. The company serves the financing needs of residential builders in Washington, Oregon, and Colorado, while also providing individual and institutional investors with significant real estate investment opportunities.
Robert's broad recreational interests include traveling, skiing, running, hiking, cycling, and scuba diving. Additionally, he has interests in applied science, technology, aviation, and economic policy. He resides in Normandy Park, Washington, with his wife, Laura Newcomer, and their two children.
