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

KETTLER - Our Story

Intentional, thoughtful, and boutique designed; are the words used to describe KETTLER’s strategy for real estate development since its inception in 1977. As a third-generation builder, Founder & CEO Robert C. Kettler parlayed a small construction business to be a multi-million-dollar real estate services firm. Over the last four decades, Kettler has been inspired and led by industry-leading innovators who identify and envision impressive plans for the land and buildings that have become roots of many of the most vibrant, diverse, and thriving neighborhoods in the Mid-Atlantic region to date. 
KETTLER has a credible reputation as one of the top multifamily development companies in the region for designing quality, mixed-use, and expansive spaces for residents to call home. Our vision has always been to build planned communities that bring people closer to their environment by developing premium sites that have access to transit and existing infrastructure. With a history as the mainspring in some of the most iconic communities in the Mid-Atlantic Region, our goal is to create economic and aesthetic value for investors, residents, and neighbors. The communities that we develop shape growth for the future and our satisfaction comes from enriching the neighborhoods that we are a part of.
