Ward Hanigan is a full-time foreclosure specialist and real estate investor based in San Diego County. He brings over 40 years of real estate experience, with a degree in Economics and a Doctorate in Law. He has worked in California’s foreclosure market exclusively since 1982, and as a consequence he has extensive experience finding cash, researching title, handling evictions, rehabbing, reselling, consulting, and is a “one-on-one” trainer and mentor to some of the most successful foreclosure practitioners in the Western United States.

At 80 years old, Ward is still chasing deals and loves what he calls Ding-Bat Rentals. He’s a perfect example of backing into a unique niche that no one else wants, and finds unique ways to attract tenants with an average lease-up of 25 years!
