About Us


Through strategic relationships with highly experienced regional property managers, Midway is an active value-add investor in multifamily housing throughout the Southeast and Texas.

Midway's principals have several decades of experience buying, developing and managing residential real estate. Midway has the knowledge and financial relationships to evaluate and close deals quickly. Its strategic alliances and local operating partners provide skilled human resources enabling us to stabilize and enhance asset performance, increase cash flow for distributions and ultimately add value sufficient to generate favorable capital events. Our principal partner is Hawthorne Residential, based in Greensboro,

North Carolina. Hawthorne, in collaboration with Midway, manages the portfolio. Since 2009, Midway and Hawthorne have purchased or developed 55 properties.

Currently, Midway owns over 13,000 multifamily housing units in stable and growth markets including Asheville, Wilmington, Greensboro, Charlotte and Raleigh, North Carolina; Charleston and Greenville, South Carolina; Houston, Austin and San Antonio, Texas; Birmingham and Huntsville, Alabama; Atlanta, Georgia; and Nashville and Chattanooga, Tennessee. While we continue to pursue opportunities in these markets, we also actively explore acquisitions wherever our resources and relationships give us a competitive advantage.
