With a combined vision in real estate, Will and James founded Heaton Dainard in 2010, midway through the market crash. The two were met with opposition from all sides and knew they were starting their new company in an uphill battle. Without banks as an option, the two used their own funds and personal capital to fund their first projects, and for years neither of them took home a paycheck – instead choosing to reinvest every penny they made. It was a major risk, but it laid the foundation for their current business model. To this day, our company funds all office overhead and we do not have any business banking lines. Today, Will and James have been involved in thousands of real estate deals, own their own rental investments, and have grown Heaton Dainard into one of Puget Sound Business Journal’s Largest Residential Real Estate Firms.
