I am Tom Hanacek, Managing Director / Principal Broker of the Commercial Division of Berkshire Hathaway Home Services NW Real Estate. I offer nearly 30 years of experience in commercial real estate brokerage and come from a diverse background in the industry.
Upon graduating from the University of Washington, I partnered with my father to form Hanacek & Company where I was instrumental in pioneering our niche as site selectors and leasing agents in the factory outlet shopping center industry. This included Oregon’s first factory outlet center, the Factory Stores at Lincoln City.
All totaled, I have been involved in ground-up leasing, brokered land sales and/or center sales on nine factory outlet centers in Oregon, Washington, Idaho and California; totaling more than 1.2 million square feet. I especially pleased to have completed leases as a landlord representative or tenant representative with the likes of Nike, Eddie Bauer, Simon Property Group, Tanger, Sara Lee, Van Heusen, Kitchen Collection and Brown-Forman.
In addition, I have been involved in the sale of more than $100 million in commercial properties, including the One Airport Center, the Boise Factory Outlet, Big 5 Sporting Goods and the Wittenberg Inn and have sold over 100 acres of commercial land to shopping center developers and users, such as Quality Centers, WinCo Foods and Providence Healthcare Systems.
Given my extensive background and ability to be creative, I has been called upon to provide consulting and tenant representation to such firms as Adidas America, Helly Hansen, Coldwater Creek, Cutter & Buck, JFC International and Pendleton Woolen Mills. In several cases, these assignments have resulted in consulting and tenant representation on a nationwide basis.
Out of the office, I have served as President and Chairman of the Board of Directors for Lincoln Youth Football and was a founding member and Vice President of Lincoln Junior Baseball and have coached youth football for 10 years, seven of those as head coach. Other activities include working out, golf, watching college football and skiing.
