Hilco Real Estate

andreas lagercrantzAndreas helped create Hilco Real Estate’s Golf Advisory practice in 2020 to further expand upon his extensive business and golf-related expertise both in Europe and US markets.

With a master’s degree in computer science and a bachelor’s in finance, Andreas has worked at financial institutions, banks and insurance companies since 2001. In 2010, following his passion for the game of golf, he started managing his younger brother, Alex Noren, who quickly emerged as a leading player on the European Tour. In the years following, Andreas traveled the world, attended professional tournaments and built a stable of professional players whom he managed - a venture that gradually evolved into IN/GOLF, an influencer destination marketing agency.

Over the last several years, Andreas has assembled the Hilco Golf Advisors platform, network and industry reputation together with Ryan Rafter. Focused on advising and assisting funds, family offices, premier resort owners and hospitality groups, Ryan and Andreas work to ultimately broker relationships and real estate transactions that leverage the sport and the experience directly for its players.

Ryan Rafter

Managing Director
Hilco Real Estate

ryan rafterRyan joined Hilco in 2017 with a unique perspective after working for one of the country’s largest commercial real estate data providers, Reis and 5 years of investment sales and leasing experience at Savills in Manhattan following graduation from New York Law School. After significant analysis, Ryan identified both a demand and need for golf course and resort owners to monetize their assets in a discreet manner that ensured maximum value which led to the formation of Hilco Real Estate’s Golf Advisory Team. Ryan brought several of Hilco’s top performing teams together including Valuations, Hilco Corporate Finance and Real Estate to ensure that all aspects of dispositions, acquisitions, valuations and capital are custom tailored to owner’s needs. Currently representing some of the largest owners and investors in the golf, hospitality, private equity and family office sectors, Ryan secured exclusive collaborations with both the National Golf Course Owners Association and the UK Golf Federation.
