Full-Service Development Company
KZ Companies is a full service commercial & residential real estate development and investment company. We specialize in integrating with our tenant’s real estate department to lead in all aspects of new store development, housing development, and new store roll out programs. We manage the development process from start to finish.
Since the inception of our company in 1994, we have successfully built an extensive foundation of relationships with retailers, homeowners, landlords and municipalities. Through our relationships we pride ourselves on the ability to deliver every project on time and on budget. Our long history of successful projects can be attributed to a grounded belief in strong financial fundamentals, low debt ratios and a great team of professionals.
Founded on the Principle of Integrity
KZ Companies’ principals, Mark Zimmerman and Charles Kavanaugh, have been representing retail tenant expansion needs. Since 1994 they have built and delivered projects nationwide and have also assembled a team of professionals that are acutely trained in all disciplines of real estate investment and development.
When Mark and Charles started in 1994 they formed KZ Holdings, LLC as their primary business vehicle. As their business needs became more specialized, they formed KZ DevCo, LP, KZ Capital, LLC and KZ Companies. KZ Holdings, LLC still continues to this day as an operating entity.
KZ Companies serves as their primary entity for new development projects while KZ Capital, LLC acts as the entity devoted to investment and acquisition. Having three specialized platforms for real estate investment, Mark and Charles are able to act quickly on market opportunities.
