Brokerage Expertise

Valuation • Marketing • Acquisitions


BMG provides brokerage expertise on regional development properties. Our specialization and market niche in both single-family and multi-family assets has long been the core focus of our business. Our expertise is rooted in brokering development properties that have potential for residential use whether single family homes, townhouse, mid-rise structures or mixed use projects.

Land transactions are typically complex, with many ‘moving parts’. Having an established buyer with a proven track record can be the difference in closing a transaction and wasting both time and opportunity. Further, a proven buyer at a minimum, can make a difficult transaction move much more smoothly. With our database of Preferred Buyers, we are able to quickly and efficiently market properties to the most stable and likely of candidates.

We serve a client base inclusive of land developers, homebuilders, investors, trusted advisors, mixed-use land sellers/developers and private estate owners.

The following represent the cornerstones of our service:

  • Provide client full valuation analysis prior to marketing the asset

Our ability to collect, synthesize, and display data is essential to providing our experienced land brokers with the added information required to not just tell you what they think, but to explain what they know.
