About Us

Who we are and what we do

Founded in 2012 by Kimberlee Curtis, KEC Construction Consulting was a Project Manager on The Banks Project in Cincinnati OH, a $250M mixed-use development along the OH Riverfront. The project consisted of privately owned residential and commercial built above a public parking garage. The firm went on to manage the public park portion of the project as Project Manager/Owner’s Rep for the Cincinnati Park Board. Smale Riverfront Park, a $150M green space riverfront development, was a joint effort of the City of Cincinnati, US Army Corps of Engineers, private donors, the state of Ohio and the United States Federal Government. The project began as 50 acres of undeveloped riverfront land that was transformed into an award winning public park space. Kimberlee represented the public parties on The Banks and Smale Riverfront Park from 2007-2016.

Kimberlee relocated to Tampa, FL in 2017 to manage a project at a local hospital complex. She obtained her real estate sales associate license in 2017 and created The KEC Group in 2019. Kimberlee obtained her real estate broker’s license in 2020 and opened The KEC Group Real Estate. Her unique experience working on large public infrastructure, commercial and residential construction projects has positioned The KEC Group to advise and represent her clients through every phase of a project. From property identification and acquisition through planning, scheduling and construction and asset management or disposition.
