BBC Properties History

BBC Properties, Inc
Michael A. Zimmerman

BBC Properties, Inc. was formed in 1996 by Michael A. Zimmerman to facilitate acquisitions and the development of commercial real estate.

Born in Dover, Delaware, the son of a potato farmer and State Senator, Michael A. Zimmerman had worked for four real estate developers for 17 years in sales, management, marketing and subsequently, financing. As a part of the development team, he worked on projects as diverse as campground cooperative sales and high-rise condominium sales in Ft. Pierce, Stuart and Vero Beach, Florida. As his career progressed, Mike was in charge of projects such as Pirates Cove Marina, Outer Banks, North Carolina and the development of golf course communities and commercial properties in Delaware.

By forming BBC Properties, Inc., Mike opened his own development firm which focused on commercial properties, and more specifically, neighborhood shopping centers and drug stores on the Eastern shore in Delaware, Maryland and Pennsylvania. Developing heavily in early 2000, he steered BBC Properties, Inc., to form a solid, mixed portfolio including apartments, dormitories, hotels, mini storage facilities, office buildings, a marina, neighborhood shopping centers and drugstores.

BBC Properties, Inc. has established a reputation on the Eastern shore as a development company that can make a deal happen through re-zoning, site plan approval, permitting and construction. Winning “favored” status from clients such as Harris Teeter Supermarkets, Food Lion Supermarkets, Superfresh Supermarkets, Redner's Supermarkets, Walgreens, CVS Pharmacies, Rite Aid, Family Dollar, Advance Auto, 7-Eleven, and Wal-Mart by working closely with clients and devoting special attention to their individual needs, time schedules, etc. Mike is most proud of having received recognition and numerous awards for economic development, historic preservation and community service.

Michael Zimmerman continues to expand BBC Properties, Inc. into a new market vista with the opening of offices in Tequesta, Florida where he has resided since 2005. Beginning with developing a marina and a waterfront condominium project, BBC Properties, Inc. plans to target the same market in Florida as it did on the Eastern shore to develop neighborhood shopping centers and drugstores using many of those same preferred clients BBC Properties has already done repeat business with in the past.

With an average yearly project development of $100M, BBC Properties’ unique specialization in commercial development will continue to grow and thereby serve each project community in a positive manner with its endeavors.

  Leaving our mark through:
Development for the future ... Serving current community needs ...
and Preservation of the past.
