BH Properties Opens Seattle Office, Hires Managing Director
BH Properties, a Los Angeles-based investment firm, has opened a new regional office in Seattle under the direction of Hughes McLaughlin, who joins the company as Managing Director. McLaughlin will be responsible for leading BH Properties’ real estate investment platform in the Pacific Northwest, specializing in distressed debt and ground leases across all property types.
“My role is to find fundamentally strong real estate assets that are suffering from today’s market dislocation,” said McLaughlin. “One of the things that attracted me to BH is that they are self-funded and require little to no leverage to close even the most complex transactions.”
McLaughlin, who has a 20-year real estate career in Seattle, will report directly to John Carl, the head of BH’s national value-add acquisitions platform.
“Current market conditions are going to create some very compelling investment opportunities,” said BH President James Brooks. “John and Hughes are very strategic hires for us as we expand our reach.”
