We are Growing


MBL Housing and Development (MBL) is an established real estate development consulting firm located in Amherst, MA. For more than 20 years, MBL has made an impact on the production and preservation of affordable housing and community facilities in Massachusetts and elsewhere. MBL is operated by a team of dedicated real estate development professionals from our home base of Western Massachusetts.


MBL provides affordable housing development, financial feasibility analysis, development packaging, project management, and market analysis services to housing and economic development projects, including many in Western Massachusetts. We partner with for-profit and non-profit project sponsors. MBL resolves complex development problems, and secures debt and equity financing. We form strong partnerships with our clients.

MBL is a limited liability company. MBL became an affiliate of Way Finders, a housing services nonprofit located in Springfield, MA, in July of 2015. Way Finders is the sole member of MBL, LLC. MBL will continue to maintain its own identify, its own office, and its own leadership and staffing structure. Through its relationship with Way Finders, MBL will benefit from access to a stable source of operating capital. This collaboration will also enable MBL to further expand opportunities and relationships with an increased number of nonprofit development and property management partners.

MBL and Way Finders are equal opportunity and affirmative action employers. We encourage applications from candidates from diverse backgrounds and cultures.
