WestHawk Capital was formed in 2020 by Gary Linhart, Founding Partner of ViaWest Group.
WestHawk is focused on identifying attractive and scalable real estate investment strategies. WestHawk will pursue opportunities either directly or in partnership with emerging managers / operating partners who need a partner with access to capital, hands-on experience building successful real estate companies, and expertise in treating all real estate investments with institutional quality management and reporting.
The company is named for West Hawk Lake in Manitoba, near Gary’s hometown of Winnipeg, in central Canada, not far from the US border. Manitoba is said to have over 100,000 lakes throughout the province, almost all of which were left over from glacial times. West Hawk Lake, while small, is different from all the other lakes: it was formed by a meteorite in pre-historic times, is almost a perfect circle, and is the deepest lake in the province. From an aerial, West Hawk Lake is almost indistinguishable from the rest of the lakes in the province, but based on its depth below the surface, and in terms of its “story”, it couldn’t be more different.
WestHawk Capital is focused on real estate investments that might not be noticed from a high-up vantage point, but when one looks below the surface, there is more depth to the opportunity, and by using experience, good judgement and persistence, a great story is ready to be told by unlocking and realizing value.
