Since 1976, Mr. Hunt has been the founder of over 100 real estate joint ventures, which resulted in the acquisition, finance, and management of income producing properties nationally.

In this capacity, he created investment capital and staffed projects in twelve states and seventeen cities. Projects were acquired, managed, and sold under his leadership.

Mr. Hunt started his career in development in San Francisco, building major high-rise projects in the CBD. He went on to join David Murdock (Castle and Cooke, Dole Pineapple) and his Development Company. Mr. Hunt graduated from UC Berkeley as a distinguished military graduate where he received his B.A. in Economics. His five years as an Airborne Ranger Infantry Captain were served in Europe and in combat in Vietnam. Mr. Hunt later received his MBA specializing in taxation. Chapin and his joint venture partners have invested in, developed, or managed over 300 major real estate transactions. They are seasoned professionals with extensive real estate and finance experience, throughout a diverse array of asset classes and real estate development across various economic, credit and capital market cycles. Additionally, they have completed real estate investments on behalf of investors in excess of $3 Billion in value.


"Chapin's mastery of the details in the financing and development of real estate is very impressive. But, perhaps

more impressive is his absolute determination to discover more value for his investors. It's an almost religious reverence for the

creative process."
