Keely’s real estate practice benefits from her extensive involvement at every stage of financing, purchasing and selling affordable multifamily housing. She joined Kegler Brown in 2016.

Real Estate

Keely represents borrowers, lenders, investors, syndicators and developers, and provides counsel in all aspects involved in conventional, tax credit and HUD-insured financing and refinancing of affordable multifamily properties. She counsels individual and corporate clients throughout the entire process of purchasing or selling one or more properties, providing guidance for preparing and negotiating purchase and sale agreements, structuring financing, facilitating investor relations, managing timelines and due diligence reviews, and handling any closing and post-closing matters, including end of credit period transitions. She understands the cyclical nature of real estate and knows how to deal with the repercussions of economic turns, handling the restructuring and refinancing of distressed properties, triage of troubled assets, workouts, and defaults and guarantee enforcement. She advises clients in the structuring, negotiation, and closing of new investments, developments and substantial rehabilitations, and other complex financings, such as projects involving conduit, public, or housing bonds.

Her practice also includes experience with New Community Authorities (NCA, or sometimes called Community Development Authorities or CDA) and tax increment financing (TIF).
