Frances joined Kane in 2016 as a Regional Manager to oversee a portfolio of multi-family assets, with a focus on purpose-built student housing and new development. She brings with her a passion for people and will use this passion to serve as an aid to on-site personnel while overseeing day-to-day operations across her portfolio. Frances will work closely with all departments within Kane including development, marketing, and operations to ensure that the best procedures are mirrored at the site level.
Prior to joining Kane, Frances worked for 11 years in the multi-family and student housing industry in various roles across the nation. She specialized in student lease-ups and new development projects. After graduating from North Carolina State University (GO PACK!), Frances “cut her teeth” in the business on a local Raleigh community near State’s campus. Her love of the business was immediate and she never looked back. Growing through the ranks, Frances has worked on lease ups and stabilized assets in over 30 different markets, overseeing as many as 5,000 units at once. Most recently, she served as a Vice President for a national developer and operator, helping to build and grow the management side of their business.
Frances posses a North Carolina Real Estate Broker’s License and continues to expand her industry education. Raleigh is home and Kane is a perfect fit for her growing family of four. When not leasing apartments, Frances enjoys hiking with her husband, Chad, and their two little girls, Ella and Lottie. She also looks forward to summer get-a-ways at Harkers Island, NC, their favorite vacation spot.
