Our Team

Homer Williams

Chairman, Partner

Homer’s real estate development career spans more than 40 years. He foresaw the change in urban demographics as a result of aging baby-boomers, and helped pioneer the live/work play concept to address these emerging trends. His vision and entrepreneurial spirit have been the driving force behind forward thinking developments in downtown Los Angeles, CA, and in the Pearl District and South Waterfront in Portland, OR. Homer has been at the vanguard of forging public/private partnerships, one of which led to the largest urban development in Oregon’s history.
