Since co-founding Horizon Realty Advisors (HRA) with Tim Smith and Mike Strand in 2001, Greg has shaped Horizon’s trajectory on a journey of excellence. In collaboration with the other co-founders, Greg has directed the management company and all departments including asset management, marketing, accounting, training, and IT. His steadfast commitment and passion are the foundation of HRA’s operations, creating a launchpad for success for residents, employees, and investors.

Before co-founding HRA, Greg's path was paved with significant achievements at Pinnacle Realty Management, where he began as a multi-site property manager and quickly ascended to the role of Executive VP, managing 25,000 units throughout Washington and Oregon, and overseeing the branch office located in Portland, OR. Greg later became the West Coast Director of Operations where his responsibilities included overseeing a 40,000+ unit portfolio throughout Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada, and Arizona.

Greg graduated from Washington State University (WSU) with a Bachelor of Business Administration, majoring in Business Marketing, while also making his mark as an athlete on the WSU men’s golf team and serving as captain of the University’s men’s soccer team. Greg remains heavily involved with his alma mater as a fervent advocate, benefactor, and fundraiser for the Cougar Athletic Fund and a passionate fan of the Washington State Cougar Football team.

Residing in Gig Harbor alongside his wife, Greg has nurtured a family of two daughters and now embraces the cherished role of a doting grandfather.

Rob Marshall is a partner with Horizon Realty Advisors (HRA) based in Seattle, Washington. Rob has over 30 years of real estate expertise, including extensive experience in property management and commercial mortgage banking. In 2006, he joined HRA as Vice President of Acquisitions and became a partner with the company in 2012. Rob has helped HRA develop significant relationships with the country’s leading student housing brokers, which have led to many exciting growth opportunities. With the help of these relationships, HRA has become one of the largest private owner-operators of student housing in the country and is continuing to grow its conventional market-rate apartments business. These acquisitions have helped grow HRA’s Assets Under Management (AUM) to over $2.75 billion.

Prior to joining HRA, Rob founded his own mortgage brokerage firm in 2001, Elliot Bay Commercial Mortgage, where he originated and closed over $400M in acquisitions for HRA. Prior to that, Rob worked for GMAC Commercial Mortgage and GE Capital.

Rob received his Bachelor of Business Administration from Seattle Pacific University (SPU) with a major in Business Marketing. Rob was also a scholarship athlete on the SPU Men’s basketball team and still owns the school’s all-time assists record. Rob and his wife, Sandy, support numerous charities and organizations including Hilinski’s Hope, Northwest Hope and Healing, and scholarships to both Olympia High School and South Whidbey High School.

loren arb

managing partner - chief operating officer

Loren joined Horizon early in 2004, and after climbing the ranks, now serves as the firm's fifth Partner and Chief Operating Officer. In this role, he oversees the management company's day-to-day operations. Loren prides himself on unlocking potential through service-style management and investing in people over process. He played a key role in enhancing Horizon's Pledge of Excellence, which has become the foundation for the company's operating platform. Loren takes a data-driven approach to property operations supported by years of on-site experience. This allows for rapid decision-making and provides a nimble platform for Horizon to quickly iterate as emerging technologies are tested and adopted.
Loren received his Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Utah with a major in Finance. He also dedicated two years to a religious mission in Northwest Mexico and completed a six-year term with the Air Force, where he earned the prestigious Top Grad award and specialized in Flightline Avionics.
A cowboy at heart, Loren grew up in Montana and has returned to the country lifestyle. He spends his evenings and weekends engaged in farm/ranch life with his wife, Lindsay, and their four children: Callie, Enzo, Holland, and Walker. Loren is passionate about all things outdoors, including hunting, camping, skiing, and biking. His time with the Air Force turned him into a bit of a tech nerd, and his tenure with Horizon has developed a refined set of culinary abilities that he frequently puts to work with his family of six.
