Holladay welcomes new Senior Vice President
(Ashland, Va.) – Holladay Properties is pleased to welcome Austin B. Haynes, Jr. as Sr. Vice President – Development at Holladay’s office in Ashland, Va. Haynes comes to Holladay from Crossroads Realtors in Manassas, Va., where he served as president for the last seven years.
Haynes will be leading the development of Holladay's Winding Brook project in Hanover County, Va., and seeking future opportunities in the area. He is a graduate of Grand Canyon University with a B. S. in Public Safety Administration; he currently holds a Virginia Real Estate Broker’s license and is a Certified Graduate Associate with NAHB.
"This position seems to be a culmination of many of the things I have done in the past: sales, land use planning, development and management," Haynes said. Haynes has had a great deal of experience with land use planning and zoning matters; he founded and is still active in ABH Consulting Services, LLC, a public relations company that specializes in land use issues in Virginia.
Haynes has done a lot of work with local governments throughout the state on various projects and is often asked to give advice on planning and zoning matters. He currently serves as the At-Large Planning Commissioner for Prince William County. He also helps oversee agricultural and conservation efforts in the county as Director with the Prince William Soil and Water Conservation District.
With regards to his goals for the Winding Brook project, Haynes is eager "to shake the dust out; the project has become somewhat stagnant due to the economy, but there is a lot of excitement moving forward, especially with the completion of the Shoppes at Winding Brook," Haynes said.
Haynes' business experience includes involvement in over $500,000,000 in residential and commercial real estate transactions. His experience, and his attitude towards real estate development, is sure to help him in his new role at Holladay.
"I am excited about development," Haynes said. "I love looking at buildings I have been involved in; I love creating new projects residential or commercial."
