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.
