The MBG Co. has been in the real
estate business in the Puget Sound Area since 1985.
MBG originally had three divisions: a development company, a general contracting
company and a real estate advisory and brokerage company. Through the years of operating
these three divisions, the company has gained tremendous experience in all facets
of the real estate business. The Principal of the company have over 35 years of
experience in residential, multi-family and commercial real estate. The company
has developed a broad and extensive knowledge of the development business and project
management from land acquisition, entitlement, design, and construction through
either management of the finished asset or deposition of the asset.
The focus has been on the acquisition and development
of commercial projects with the majority being apartments, condominiums, and townhomes.
The company has developed over 2,000 units and has been the creator of such well-known
Seattle residential landmarks as The Pier at Leschi and Epicenter in Fremont. MBG has focused over the last several years on waterfront developments. Over
the years, eight of the company’s projects have been featured in national
and regional real estate publications.
Since the company’s inception, the company has acted as a real estate advisor to a wide variety of clients ranging from large insurance and REITS to local investors.
The MBG Co. is experienced in developing waterfront property.
Developing waterfront property has many layers besides simply procuring permits.
Waterfront development in Washington is governed by the Shoreline Management Act
for regulation of shoreline uses. It involves dealing with government agencies such
as the Department of Ecology, the Department of Fish & Wildlife and the U.S. Corps
of Engineers. It also requires knowledge of Native American tribes and their jurisdiction.
The company has become expert in dealing with these and other entities and navigating
through the bureaucratic maze.
