Land Use Consulting and Real Estate Development Services

About me

I have deep experience in the Bay Area, San Jose, and Silicon Valley in real estate development, land use, government relations, and entitlements. My specialty is forward planning, project and program management, and site design. My experience in city planning, infill redevelopment, and many years as a private developer gives me a unique perspective from both sides of the table and has informed all my work on behalf of developers and property owners.

I am an excellent team-builder and manager with years of experience overseeing complex planning and entitlement processes in many jurisdictions. I have achieved a high success rate in designing, managing, and constructing projects by holding tight to the non-negotiables (honestly, just recognizing the non-negotiables puts me ahead of most people in the room) while facilitating sensitive, genuine cooperation with key stakeholders.

Kelly was instrumental in helping our firm navigate the entitlement process within the City of Santa Clara for our Mission Park Market Place project, a 23,000 SF amenity retail center and a 175 key Element by Westin hotel. On top of that, she was fun to work with! I would highly recommend Kelly.

Real Estate Developer & Investor

Kelly was amazing on helping me navigating the state requirements and interfacing with city planning. Kelly provided great advice to me and my business partners on new multi-family infill construction. She knew the key issues and the key influencers we needed to work with, and Kelly really understands the development process. She isn't just a government relations advisor - she understands costs, construction, and design just as well as she knows entitlement and land-use policies. Most importantly, she was responsive and fun to work with. I will highly recommend Kelly to any developer that would like to benefit of getting the Highest Efficiency development on their site.
