He has a strong background in real estate investments including ownership, asset management, development and acquisition.

In 2001, Keith founded Kite Properties, a real estate investment, development and management firm specializing in hospitality and retail properties. The personal experience Keith brings to Coldwell Banker Commercial assists him in every aspect of the sales process. From identifying and pre-qualifying buyers, to solving issues before they arise in the due diligence period, his insight and expertise in retail real estate delivers the resources necessary to guide buyers and sellers through complex transactions.
