For over 45 years, the Hinds family has been actively involved in the real estate business in Santa Cruz County. After traveling the world as a civil engineer building dams and bridges, Jack Hinds moved his family to Santa Cruz in 1971 and became a General Building Contractor (Lic. 269873) and commercial real estate owner. In 1981, Jack’s son Douglas Hinds landed his first customer as a General Building Contractor (Lic. 402277). Doug continued to work as Contractor for over 30 years, specializing in rough carpentry and commercial framing. As a Real Estate Developer, Doug completed the first Mixed-Use property on Mission Street in 2001 which the City of Santa Cruz used as a reference project in implementing the Mission Street Urban Design Plan and Land Use Designation. From high-density multifamily developments and mixed-use retail centers to luxury custom homes and coastal condos, the Hinds family has built it, bought it, or sold it.
Hinds & Sons LLC was formed in 2015 by Jason, Jared, and Troy.
