About Nathan Hitchcock

Founder & CEO

Nathan began a lifelong love affair with serving his community at the ripe old age of 11, waking everyday rain or shine at 4:30am for nearly 3 years to deliver the San Francisco Chronicle newspaper to 150 residents of Berkeley, California.  His real estate career had equally humble beginnings in 1998 when at the age of 24 he began working nights and weekends as a handyman repairing rental homes for a small property management firm to supplement his meager earnings as a dot-com entrepreneur.

3 years later he and his wife Erin, both working two jobs each, managed to scrounge up enough to buy their first home, which they personally renovated from floor to ceiling in their spare time and sold for a tidy profit 2 years later.  “I was 100% hooked on real estate from that point on,” recounts Nathan.  “I loved anything and everything that had to do with houses.”

Nathan and Erin went on to found Hitchcock Realty in 2006, a boutique firm that provided all manner of real estate services.  In 2014, it was rebranded and rebuilt from the ground up as Via Property Management, focusing exclusively on residential property management.  In addition to doing his best to impersonate a CEO of a property management company, Nathan is also a Broker Associate with Alain Pinel Realtors where he serves the needs of clients who are buying and selling homes.
