 Hallmark Communities emphasizes building the highest-quality homes at the best value the company can offer. 

By Bianca Herron

Hallmark Communities, a third-generation family homebuilder, was founded in 1984 by a father and son duo. For the past 33 years, the Solana Beach, Calif.-based company has built, designed and constructed homes that reflect its commitment to exceptional value and customer service, President Chris Hall says.

“My grandfather, Raymond Hall, was a civil engineer and my dad, Michael Hall, was a commercial broker,” Hall says. “Their first homebuilding project was in El Cajon, Calif., and since then we have grown the company from just a couple employees to where it is today. It feels good to work in the family business and be successful. It’s definitely a source of pride, not only for myself, but also for our entire family.”

Eastwind Development knows it’s all about location when it comes to developing successful multifamily housing communities in Florida.

By Janice Hoppe-Spiers

Eastwind Development prides itself on being a small and nimble firm when it comes to the acquisition and development of multifamily housing throughout Florida. “We are a local shop with a focus of developing entirely in Florida,” Vice President Ron Roan says. “I was born and lived my whole life in Florida and our president, Jack Weir, has been here for approximately 30 years. We understand our markets.”

Eastwind, celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, was founded Weir in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., in 2007. After serving as senior vice president for a privately held Florida multifamily development group, Weir saw the potential for a better company. Eastwind Development and its affiliate, Eastwind Acquisitions, focus on the acquisition and development of new multifamily housing.

The baby boomer and millennial generations would seem to not have very much in common. But when it comes to what many members of either generation are looking for in a new home, they share more commonalities than many people might think.

Both generations – the two largest in the United States in terms of population – are drawn to similar types of housing, albeit for different reasons.


Post Properties reinvests in urban neighborhoods by building apartment communities with expanded amenity offerings. By Stephanie Crets

Post Properties strives to make a difference through urban renewal and redevelopment in the core of major cities such as Atlanta, Houston, Tampa and Washington, D.C. The company builds apartment communities in close proximity to local businesses and public transit, appealing to young professionals and millennials attracted to an urban lifestyle.

“We’re experiencing the resurgence of the urban core in cities across America,” Executive Vice President and CIO David Ward says. “People are flocking back to the central city in almost every market we’re in. That’s a very healthy dynamic for the cities and housing in these areas. We spend a lot of time understanding the neighborhoods in which we choose to invest. People desire the kind of walkable neighborhood with access to restaurants and entertainment that provides the opportunity meet friends and experience life together.” Ward says millennials want “a nice place with the opportunity to connect and mingle with folks and walk to work or where they want to go eat.”
