Where acquisition
meets innovation


BWS is the only dedicated real estate acquisitions consulting firm in the United States. BWS unlocks high-quality, proprietary deal flow for real-estate reliant businesses and investors that are driven by aggressive growth targets.

BWS's expertise is put into action from day one of an engagement. Customized plans lay the groundwork for a 360-degree attack of the market, whether local, regional or national. Through proactive and persistent off-market investigation and a commitment to building rapport with market influencers, BWS generates a higher volume of deal flow with generous alternatives for site selection. Clients benefit from better negotiation postures, more favorable prices and less risk.

Founded in 2014, BWS is a spinoff of established development powerhouse, Blake Communities. The firm's comprehensive acquisitions solution is grounded in two decades of development experience and hundreds of transactions. Clients include public retailers, REITs, private and public homebuilders, private equity funds and Fortune 500 companies.



Our Process

At BWS, delivering sustainable, high-growth real estate opportunities is our sole priority. We achieve this through a commitment to rigor, relationships, and results. Our 41-Point Acquisition Playbook combines high-touch and high tech to offer a first-of-its-kind, full-service solution to source, vet, analyze and underwrite land acquisition.



Your criteria, not what the market dictates, are our blueprint for success. We proactively pursue off-market
opportunities and unlock unmatched volume of high-quality, qualified deal flow to match your goals.
That translates to more suitablesites to choose from — often at below-market pricing — and shorter decision-making cycles.
