A Real Estate Company Focused on Driving Value & Delivering Experiences that Exceed Expectations

4 decades of distinctive development

Founder and Chairman Robert C. Kettler, a third-generation builder, parlayed a small construction business into a multi-million dollar development firm. His extraordinary leadership has resulted in planned communities and commercial spaces that are recognized for quality design, mix of uses and extensive amenities. Our “early-mover” history of identifying, envisioning, and putting into motion the plans and buildings that have become the roots of many of the most vibrant, diverse and thriving neighborhoods in the Mid-Atlantic region sets us apart. Many of which are vertically planned communities that bring people closer to their environment by utilizing premium sites close to transit and existing infrastructure. KETTLER has a history as the mainspring in some of the most iconic communities in the Mid-Atlantic Region. Creating economic and aesthetic value for investors, residents, and neighbors, the communities that we develop are those that shape patterns of growth for the 21st century, and centuries to come. Headquartered in McLean, Va., KETTLER has developed over 25,000 multifamily units, 5 million square feet of commercial space, more than 70,000 homes in more than 40 master-planned communities, and many of the D.C. Region's premier mixed-use communities. The company manages approximately 20,000 apartments in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, and Southeast regions and Florida. Still, our greatest satisfaction comes from enriching the communities of which we are a part.
