Real estate development & affordable housing

“Not in my backyard.” Fear and neighborhood activism can doom a real estate project before the first backhoe arrives on site. Siefkas helps both private and non-profit developers gain acceptance for controversial projects. Siefkas has served as public relations counsel for the Community Shelter Board’s “Rebuilding Lives,” an initiative to house hundreds of homeless person throughout Franklin County, Ohio, and advised affordable housing organizations on outreach efforts to involve neighbors and housing residents in successful planning. Our agency managed response to vocal neighborhood opposition to housing for people with mental and physical disabilities.
