KDG to Keeley Properties
We recently announced that we were beginning a new chapter as Keeley Properties! We are still the same KDG you know and love with the same dedication to customer service and our people. We just have some fresh, new branding! This new name and logo better represent both our Development and Property Management verticals. Our integrated real estate platform improves communities through the built environment. We are powered by our culture of INVESTMENT WITH INTENT as we invest in people and real estate to build relationships and activate communities.
Our Team Growth
Keeley Properties is growing rapidly as we enter new markets across the country, and we need incredible talent that can help sustain this growth. We have many open positions across our platform – marketing, property management, resident experience, accounting, and more – and are excited to grow our family.

As we finish out 2021, it is important we reflect on our goal alignment and focus on reaching scorecard metrics that we set for ourselves at the beginning of the year. Our STP (strategic planning) summits and monthly meetings ensure that we were on track to achieve goals. We look at where we are succeeding and discuss how we got to where we are, while also seeing where we can improve and committing to SMART action plans to guide us and hold us accountable to our goals and to each other. These STP meetings are a crucial and valuable part of the KeeleyWay.
#KeeleyCares: Flags of Valor & Pedal the Cause
We are so grateful to support the incredible work of #KeeleyCares and there were two recent events that really hit home to the Keeley Properties family. First, our very own Rob Lochner brought Flags of Valor to Keeley Companies. Flags of Valor was founded in 2011 as part of America’s Heartland Remembers. Every five years, since the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, Flags of Valor works to honor the men and women who died in the attacks and the War on Terror, as well as the first responders who gave the ultimate sacrifice. This year, Keeley’ns from across the companies came together to help assemble, install, and take down over 7,000 flags on Art Hill in St. Louis, MO. This was an exceptionally moving tribute, and we can’t wait to continue supporting Flags of Valor. Click here to learn more.
At the end of September, we were so excited to welcome back Pedal the Cause after their fully virtual event last year due to COVID-19. Our founder, Bill Koman, started Pedal the Cause in 2010 and it has since grown into a multi-city, weekend cycling event that raises money to fund groundbreaking cancer research. Pedal the Cause has raised over $32 million since its inception, and we are so grateful to be a part of it. This year, Team Keeley raised over $50,000 with riders participating in the St. Louis races, the stationary spinning event, and virtual rides across the country. #KeeleyCares also sponsors the volunteer tent with Keeley’ns coming out to volunteer during the whole weekend. Pedal the Cause is one of our favorite weekends of the year!
When we look back on 2021, it has been a year marked by new projects, new experiences, and new team members. This change will only continue with everything in our pipeline – we can’t wait for all that is to come!
