Lance is the Founder and Managing Partner of Verivest, an end-to-end real estate investment platform designed to bring transparency and trust to middle-market investing, and a Principal in Fairway America, a real estate private equity firm in Portland, Oregon.

Chris Hanson of Hanson Capital Group joins Lance to discuss his journey in the real estate industry and the myriad of services that Hanson Capital Group offers. Hard money lending as well as value add real estate are just two of the services Chris’ group offers their investors. His firm’s goal is to have offerings that suit any investors’ portfolio needs – ranging from low to high risk. Chris’s philosophy is to focus on the risk rather than what can go right – this mindset has helped his firm yield strong results.

This Week’s Guest

Chris Hanson, founder of Hanson Capital Group, has been actively involved in real estate since 2008. Hanson Capital Group originally operated as an auction bidding service provider for institutional clients, such as Invitation Homes, Fortress, Waypoint, and American Homes for Rent. After successfully acquiring 1500+ single family residences, Hanson saw the opportunity to scale business through the facilitation of acquisition funding, and started Hanson Capital LLC, which to this day operates as a state licensed bank in multiple states.

Hanson transitioned from residential real estate to commercial real estate in 2016, initially focusing primarily on small value-add multifamily properties, and has grown Hanson Capital Group, LLC into a fully integrated private equity firm that repositions and develops retail, industrial, and multifamily properties. As of 2020, Hanson, through his affiliated companies, has bought and sold over 2000 single family residences and over 1000 multifamily units.
