"Mike Hasson, former CEO and founder of The Hasson Company, was a behind-the-scenes giver—someone who valued connections, forging relationships and giving back to the communities that gave him so much."

Lake Oswego Review, January 4, 2021

October 1954 - December 2020 


Mike Hasson, a native Oregonian, graduated from the University of Oregon and then pursued his passion for business and real estate, building a legacy that lives on in the Portland community through his family and the company he built. In 1983, Mike launched Handel, Hasson & Jones, a residential real estate brokerage, in Lake Oswego. During that venture, he earned a reputation for smart business, strong ethics and fostering exceptional client relationships.

In 1991, he formed Hasson Company, Realtors®—now The Hasson Company—opening the first Hasson offices in Lake Oswego and NW Portland. Throughout the company’s growth, Mike’s fundamental goals and values remained true and he was widely known and admired for supporting the communities in which Hasson brokers live, work and play.

In memory of Mike, the family encourages donations to the OHSU Foundation–Michael J. Hasson Lectureship for Mesothelioma. Online donations can be made at

"I worked for my father’s company for eight years. When he retired, there was no question in my mind about what company would become my new home base. Mike Hasson was a hands-on owner who truly cared about the caliber of agents he hired. When you see a Hasson sign you know the owner of that property is represented by a dedicated, professional agent and a company that stands firmly behind them."
