About the team

Who We Are

Our history dates back to 1976. Gary Hawkins began developing commercial real estate with an emphasis on retail shopping center development. With over 40 years in business, Hawkins Companies has partnered with over 400 clients. We’ve completed more than 270 projects, spanning across 22 states. We’ve developed 12 million square feet of property, and we currently manage 3.1 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 for Hawkins, you’re joining 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.

We work hard to move great projects forward, but we take even deeper pride in our internal culture and employee retention. As an employee of Hawkins Companies, you are part of a family legacy that spans years of commercial success and tradition. We celebrate that success with year-round employee events that range from barbecues and holiday parties to occasional company-sponsored vacations for employees and spouses.

Our desirable downtown location puts us in the heart of Boise’s best restaurants, shopping, and entertainment district. Our office is inspired by the creativity and culture of our city. We showcase local artwork throughout our space, and, as a team, we frequent performances at our neighboring Knitting Factory Concert House. With a full kitchen, library, workout facility, and massage room (with on-site masseuse), our office is designed to be the optimal work environment with all the amenities that maximize employee productivity and fulfillment.
