Building Wealth and Value for Our Partners
HB manages over $3 billion worth of multifamily real estate and is the owner-operator of entities specializing in development, management, large-scale acquisitions, and brokerage. HB has been an investment instrument for large institutional investors and family offices throughout North America. In addition, HB has diversified interests in other asset classes such as hospitality, retail, transportation, and communications.
HB Management is the business and investment management entity of the Hewson and Breiner combined family offices, headquartered in Seattle, Washington. The earliest multifamily investments date back to the 1950s, before the combination of the Hewson and Breiner offices, beginning with real estate on the east coast of the United States, mainly in the New York City suburbs located in Connecticut. Much of the portfolio still exists in partnerships today. In the 1990s, strategies changed and both families started expanding their investments to the west coast of the U.S. due to the explosive growth of high-tech jobs and population in and around Seattle, Washington. In 2004, the Hewson and Breiner families joined forces to form HB Management, and since then have purchased, developed, and acquired all of their businesses and real estate investments together as partners. The managing principals of HB are Edward Hewson and Jonathan Breiner, second and third-generation managers of their family businesses. HB’s subsidiaries in the multifamily space include Indigo Real Estate Services (Property Management), Paragon Real Estate Advisors (Brokerage), CP Capital, and Westplan Investors.
