About Us

GranCorp was founded in 1986 as a subsidiary of a Swedish real estate investment company. We have been involved in acquisition, development, and repositioning of commercial real estate properties in Washington, Oregon, and California. Michael and Jill Heijer purchased GranCorp in 1994, and the business has been family owned since.

Michael and Jill graduated from UC Berkeley in 1985 and immediately moved to Seattle to start GranCorp. Over the past 40 years, they have lived in the greater Seattle area. Michael serves as President with Jill serving as Vice-President. In 2019, their son Alexander Heijer joined the company as a Director after working in San Francisco as an investment banker.
