re: Chris Hanson The New Cohousing Group in Seattle Washington has used Chris Hanson for a "Land Search and Purchase" workshop. We had met Chris before at a couple tours of the Winslow project. We have committed to a limited-equity cooperative model to assure long-term affordability, and we were concerned that Chris did not have experience with this. However, we were pleasantly surprised with his attention to affordability issues, withing the context of the workshop. Since he had done land search, not without controversy, for the Winslow group, he had a natural bias towards Bainbridge Island (where the Winslow project was located). I would suggest that you ask him to send workshop handouts in adavance, to review them. We received a draft of a chapter of a book he's writting that covered our workshop topic, and we found it useful. In retrospect, more materials (e.g., model Pro Forma statements) would have been useful in adavance of the workshop. I think you'll find him fair and honest and experienced, and honest about his biases. /eric rehm The New Cohousing Group Seattle, WA (206) 783-4821 (206) 865-8904 (w) rehm [at] zso.dec.com
