Unlike most attorneys, Hunter Hanger entered the legal field to be around people. His primary motivator is to see clients empowered through understanding, and protected by an assertive legal advocate.

Prior to practicing law, he worked in DC on Capitol Hill and in Real Estate in Los Angeles, CA.  A natural activator, Hunter works tirelessly to get transactions moved to closing in a timely and exact manner.

Entering Real Estate Law during a significant market downturn, Hunter cut his teeth negotiating short sale deficiencies against Big Banks. The key to success requires skilled navigation of large bureaucracies and mastery of the service manuals for Freddie Mae, Fannie Mac, HUD, VA, and various other protocols of private investors. As government regulation of the mortgage industry continues to expand through laws like the Dodd-Frank Act, Hunter appreciates the power of application of these reforms to client problems.

Hunter is committed to ensuring Hanger Law has the best people and the best processes to ensure his clients are brought through complex transactions with ease and confidence.  He is a self-admitted Zillow addict and loves to walk clients from start to finish on their real estate transactions.

Hunter and his wife, Kara live with their three children in Croatan. He serves as an elder at CrossCurrent Church and in his free time, enjoys surfing, running, and studying history.

Excellent, Efficient and Ethical!
Hunter and his team made my refinance effortless! My lender had me bringing a couple hundred dollars to closing. Thanks to Hunter and his amazing, thorough staff, for getting an accurate payoff and corrected taxes, I was refunded money at closing. , Not only was ever detail executed seamlessly, I saved more money than I expected. Thank you Hunter and your friendly, amazing staff.

Seamless out of area home purchase & closing
Hunter Hanger helped my husband and I purchase and close on our home in Northern Virginia. Throughout the process Hunter was very engaged and ensured that we understood each step along the way. Hunter handled our closing remotely since his office was several hours away. Closing with Hunter remotely was actually easier than any closing that we've done with other attorneys in person. Hunter sent the closing documents in advance via email for our review and then a notary to our house on the day of closing. We breezed through the closing in less than an hour in the comfort of our own home confidently signing each document because we had already been able to review and discuss them with him in advance. Hunter is a man of integrity who puts his clients needs first.

Homebuyer
My husband and I hired Hanger Law to handle the legal side of closing on our house. Hunter Hanger could have sent another attorney to our closing but he came, made sure things went smoothly, and offered us a great gift to celebrate closing on our first house. He was thoughtful and patient as he walked us through the many legal forms and answered all of our questions. His staff was also very helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend Hanger Law!
