Hank Hohenstein recently joined Home & Ranch Sotheby's International Realty. He brings with him a wide range of experiences in the Real Estate industry to well serve his discerning clients. Hank has worked with David Packard and The Nature Conservancy to preserve critical open space in the Coachella Valley. This preserve was the first Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP) to be implemented in the United States. It was to become the template for many future HCPs created here and abroad. He worked with Tony Lizza and Fred Couples to create a magnificent 18-hole golf course that caters to its 400 members. The Plantation course plays through active citrus and date palm groves. The design of this course was not predicated by a golf architect's design, but by the selective removal of trees and bunker placement based on the specific challenge of each hole. In addition, he has personally taken land through the entire development process from unimproved land to finished, occupied homes. He has enjoyed this process as a developer and as a land planner. While living in San Luis Obispo County he has also managed grazing land. Hank's degrees are: Bachelor of Science in Agriculture specializing in Animal Husbandry and a Master of City and Regional Planning specializing in rural lands and sensitive sites. Hank's philosophy is one of simple, but elegant stewardship. Among awards earned by Hank are The Nature Conservancy Service Award; The Outstanding Public Planner, State of California Award - California Chapter American Planning Association and The Bill Bone Award for Service to Post Secondary Education. His preferred personal award is a satisfied client. He looks forward to serving discriminating owners and investors seeking those opportunities uniquely present along the Central Coast of California.
