Investment | Development | Advisory



MAVD was founded in 1989 with a simple mission: Be the best at what we do in the markets we serve. Since that time, our seasoned team has led the acquisition and development of more than 3 million square feet of the highest caliber commercial office space, and over 1,000 acres of prime development land, across Michigan and Colorado.

Our legacy of excellence was built on an unwavering service platform, honed by decades of hands-on expertise. And because we operate from an owner-mindset, we treat clients the way we would want to be treated – with proactive service, common-sense management, and outstanding results.
