Carl Haglund’s inspiring journey from a gas station attendant and fast-food cook to a prominent figure in affordable housing and community development in Seattle is a testament to the power of perseverance and dedication. Carl’s passion for creating safe, affordable living spaces for the working-class citizens of Seattle led him to start his own construction business, where he has spent over 40 years refurbishing neglected buildings and developing clean, safe neighborhoods where people of all backgrounds can live together.
Creating Safe and Affordable Neighborhoods for Everyone
Throughout his career, Carl Haglund has remained committed to his mission of making affordable housing accessible to everyone. He has spent millions of dollars rehabilitating older homes and multiplexes and even moved them to different locations around Puget Sound to create more affordable living spaces. Carl’s dedication to his work has helped countless individuals and families in the Seattle area find a place to call home.
