Real Estate Development


Way Finders builds affordable housing developments in communities throughout our region. Throughout the process we work to keep the community apprised and involved. We welcome public input and encourage people to visit other communities where we have built, and continue to manage projects. We work with the region’s most environmentally sensitive architects and high quality builders. In each development, we include community spaces and outdoor play areas for children. Our goal is to create quality homes where people prosper.
