About Us

20040426_Gary&Steve_cGary Hawkins & Steve Smith are life-long friends who grew up always looking for the best deals. Hawkins-Smith was formed in 1978 with a handshake between two friends. Together, they developed their first shopping center in Boise, Idaho consisting of 464,700 square feet which established Hawkins-Smith as a ground-up developer.

Almost 30 years later, Hawkins-Smith and its affiliates have developed over 5.5 million square feet of commercial real estate in seventeen states. Our emphasis on long-term involvement with our projects are maintained not only for our benefit, but also for our tenants, development partners, and the community.
