Drawing from decades of experience through numerous business cycles, Hannay is able to utilize their expertise in all areas of the commercial real estate industry to provide comprehensive solutions to clients, owners and tenants. With their longevity and excellent reputation as a company, Hannay is always looking to maximize asset value and enhance efficiency.

Apart from investing in commercial real estate, Hannay’s expertise encompasses a wide range of asset types, including office, retail, industrial, multi-family and self-storage properties.

Hannay has grown from a local Arizona company to a major regional presence in the United States by capitalizing on over 30 years of experience in adding and protecting asset value for lenders, owners, and investors. The firm has handled $2 billion in loans as a court-appointed receiver. In addition, due to their unique ability to combine receivership, operations, property management, consulting and disposition services under one roof, the firm has an outstanding track record with many of the major lenders and special servicers throughout the country. Today, Hannay has become a nationally recognized authority for its expertise in managing distressed properties.

With their broad experience serving both private and institutional clients, Hannay occupies a unique space in the commercial real estate industry. They are well-capitalized and large enough to provide a broad range of services across multiple states, yet flexible enough to provide strategic asset management and independent advisory services at a level of care unavailable from national brokerage firms.
