At BVA, we believe that Incredible spaces inspire incredible people. BVA was founded by several incredible individuals, including Tommy Ahlquist and Cortney Liddiard.

Ahlquist Development was founded by Dr. Tommy Ahlquist in 2005. Under Tommy's leadership, Ahlquist Development developed and owned over two million square feet of class A office space, medical office buildings and retail space. Tommy's inspired projects have patently transformed multiple cities in Idaho.

When Tommy Ahlquist and Cortney Liddiard (CEO of Ball Ventures) first discussed the idea of a joint venture, the two shared a vision of creating the region's most prominent commercial real estate development company. With each party contributing its core strengths to the partnership, BVA Development was founded in 2018. With rapid success and growth, BVA is a well-capitalized and professionally managed company focused on creating the best regional portfolio of office, retail, medical, flex, and industrial spaces.
