With a real estate history that ties back three generations, Cascade Development was formed in 2016 on midwestern principals of a hands on, hard work approach to all aspects of our business. Although our company name is new, what we have been doing in the real estate world is not. One of our founders, John Stauffacher, cut his teeth in the family business helping his father build Exel Inns of America, a 35 property hotel chain founded in 1974. Fast forward to today, the lessons learned through a lifetime of development have shaped the way we do business. As a boutique firm that acts as a developer, contractor, and manager of its ground up properties, Cascade Development strives to provide great buildings staffed with quality employees that provide exceptional service.
