The Story

A legacy of integrity

Our history dates back to 1976. Gary Hawkins began developing commercial real estate with an emphasis on retail shopping center development. With over 45 years in business, Hawkins Companies has partnered with over 400 clients. We’ve completed more than 300 projects, spanning across 28 states. We’ve developed 13.3 million square feet of property, and we currently manage 4.4 million square feet of retained commercial property.

Hawkins Companies provides the highest level of professional service to clients. Our success is a testament to our family-oriented culture and long-lasting client relationships. We pride ourselves on our reputation of integrity, and we treat our employees and our clients with honesty and fairness. As Gary says, “I never want to face someone and not be able to say, ‘I treated them fairly.’”

When you work with Hawkins, you’re partnering with a company of loyal, seasoned professionals who are proud of where they work. Our average employee tenure is over 10 years, and several have been with us for 20 years. Our high employee retention means you’re collaborating with experienced people who bring a wealth of knowledge to complex projects. We’re problem solvers at our core, and we love what we do.
