Company Principals

Howard John Hall, President and CEO
Howard was a noted Massachusetts real estate and land use attorney for many years before devoting his energies to real estate development. Since the mid-1980s, he has served as a principal in multiple development companies throughout New England. During this time, he has focused on developing communities that offer quality, affordable homes and a unique lifestyle to residents.

In the early 2000s, Howard partnered with a local builder in Westford, MA to create the Village at Stone Ridge, a 110-unit development of age-restricted condominiums. Located on 108 acres of prime land, Stone Ridge offered plenty of open space, a beautiful quarry and scenic walking trails. The popularity of Stone Ridge led other developers to follow suit with additional retirement communities in the area.

 In 2004, Howard identified a new need within the recreational market and turned his attention to creating classic seasonal cottage communities as a way to bring back some of the joy he experienced during carefree childhood summers spent outdoors.

Howard "Chip" Hall, Senior Vice President
Before joining Cottage Advisors, Chip Hall focused on sales and business development in senior management positions for multiple companies. Chip has been involved in seven startup companies, including two that he co-founded. Through his prior work, Chip has extensive experience building world class teams and developing and maintaining strategic relationships. He continues to take an active role in creating and maintaining partnerships for Cottage Advisors, and is responsible for overseeing all land acquisitions.
