What Clients Say About KLS

“Thank you for all of the work you have done for K. Hovnanian Homes in Dallas/Fort Worth. We feel that you are the perfect planner for all of our product needs including traditional single-family, age-targeted and high-density single-family. We are always impressed with your timeliness in deliverables and interaction with engineers to understand development costs and engineering constraints. Your planning creativity has helped us multiple times in negotiations with land sellers and municipalities. Keep up the good work."


Michael Dewers,

Director of Land Acquisition - DFW

K. Hovnanian Homes

"During a yearlong rezoning process, I had the privilege of working very closely with James. If found him to be not only creative but with a keen eye for the economic impact rezoning had on the value of our property. He was widely accepted by the City of Allen Planning Department which made the entire process go smoothly. The final result was PD 108 which has proven to be very positive for the development of this property. Through James' effort we were able to create a document that promoted an urban style environment but more importantly, allowed us maximum flexibility of uses. We would absolutely use James for our future planning projects and would highly recommend him to anyone seeking his services."
