Will Weatherspoon, Partner
I have had the pleasure of working with Kate Brown over the last 12 years. We have worked together on a variety of matters, including acquisition of land for commercial development, financing of shopping centers, commercial leasing and landlord/tenant matters, and general contract issues. Kate has impressed me with her attention to detail, responsiveness and overall professionalism. She is very knowledgeable about retail development, management of construction projects, and property management. Her greatest assets may be her warm personality and bright smile! Kate will be a valuable partner in any commercial venture.

When it comes to development and construction, Kate Brown walks the walk and talks the talk. I’ve worked with Kate for more than 12 years now and am continually impressed with her expert understanding of the construction process and timeline. She knows what it takes to build a quality product, and at the same time, she’s very cognizant of costs and scheduling to maintain a tight budget. She comes through for her investor clients again and again, building properties that attract and keep quality tenants. She is a talented developer that our Ashland Construction team is proud to partner with on projects throughout the area.
