Jessica Browdy, founded J. Kelly Advisors in 2015, as a woman owned, highly specialized Project Management Firm with practice areas in tenant/landlord representation for corporate office, corporate interiors, education, places of worship, hospitality, healthcare facilities, industrial, mixed use, advanced technology, and residential projects. JKA focuses on client centric services and excellence in quality and collaboration. Our goal is to manage the risks inherent in design and construction and provide services that will exponentially pay for themselves through the project lifecycle. Additionally, we want our clients to be able to focus on their business, while we focus on their project needs.
Prior to JKA, Jessica built a successful career in the SFL commercial real estate market, initially as an architect, then working for one of the nation’s leading General Contractors as a PM and Pre-construction Manager, and then finally transitioning to Client Advisory/Project Management Services. Maureen joined forces with Jessica in 2018 to assist in scaling the business and establish the firm as a client centric, world class service provider. Maureen continuous to be an established professional focused on corporate strategy, corporate real estate and developer relations, and business development. Both women were instrumental in growing JLL’s and Cresa Partner’s SFL Project Management/ Client Advisory Services group, while managing over $500M of projects for accounts with Royal Caribbean, Carnival Cruise Lines, and HBO Latin America, to name a few. We utilize our broad experience of the real estate industry to assist our clients in managing the key risks of project delivery, allowing them to focus on their businesses. We have a passion for the arts and believe strongly in the advocacy and intersection of art and architecture in the South Florida Development process.
JKA maintains a team-oriented approach working with clients, developers, institutional investors and brokerage & LL teams with a strategic partnership approach. Becoming involved in development projects early in on the process, we add value through the site selection process, regulatory due diligence, feasibility studies, permiting /variance management, value engineering, and estimating.
JKA specializes in complex contract negotiations, team selection/management, highly efficient schedule and budget development and effective management of the construction process. JKA offers extensive experience in value engineering, budgeting, and innovative solutions to meet your budgetary needs.
