Generations of excellence.

From our humble beginnings owning a single building, First Amherst Development Group has grown into one of the most respected and diversified real estate companies in Western New York.

Our transformation into an award-winning commercial real estate development and management company has taken over three generations. We spent that time identifying exactly what it is that makes a tenant's experience exceptional—and what makes a property more than a building, but a true representation of businesses and individuals.

Most of all, it's taken devotion. To clients, and to a set of principles.


It’s not enough to do something great once. So at First Amherst Development Group, our most important tradition is delivering the very best to our clients, investors and partners. For over 60 years, we’ve used our superior marketplace insight and expertise to provide reliable, first-class service—with unfailing consistently.
