Richard Hausler and Michael Blum became veterans of apartment development at Kettler — the area’s largest multifamily housing builder — before starting their own firm following the 2008 economic collapse.
Since then, they have not looked back — maybe because they have not had time. After founding Insight Property Group in the fall of 2009, Hausler and Blum have closed deals for eight apartment complexes or development sites in the Washington area, despite only being in business for 10 quarters. The deals total 537 existing apartment units and 1,129 apartments in development, planning or construction. They have two more sites under contract.
