WMG Development is a full-service national real estate investment and development company made up of an entrepreneurial team of creative problem solvers with “can-do” attitudes. Throughout the years, we have executed a solid track record of successful development solutions.

In 2003, Rick Workman and the Workman Family founded what has become WMG Development, LLC. In the early years, our sole focus was to assist in the rollout of Heartland Dental’s impressive growth strategy which propelled them to the largest dental support organization in the United States. As a result, the Workman Family’s real estate development companies have become the largest owner and developer of dental tenant assets in the United States. This shared success has opened many other doors for WMG Development.

While we are the largest go-to developer for retail-positioned dental offices in the US, we also develop commercial real estate projects for a variety of industry segments including retail, healthcare, and restaurants. Our expertise in site selection, as well as our quick-action responsiveness, makes WMG Development the premier retail developer in the United States.
