In 2005 Shannon and Liz began working together as analysts at a leading national zoning company, each rising quickly through the ranks to lead the division: supervising teams, reviewing all reports, and managing the largest clients. During the economic downturn the company closed its zoning division. Shannon and Liz worked with a new zoning firm as independent contractors where for several years they delivered the majority of all the zoning reports and provided all of the company’s client management services. 


Having worked together for nearly two decade Shannon and Liz have developed a partnership that maximizes each other’s strengths. Together they have prepared over 20,000 zoning assessments and have a tremendous working knowledge of the zoning due diligence industry.


Shannon and Liz incorporated Key Zoning Assessments, LLC (KZA) to provide a superior level of service and analysis. With a client-centered philosophy rooted in accurate analysis, responsive communications, and managerial flexibility, the Partners of KZA are able to provide customized services to meet the individual needs of each client, faster and better than ever before. KZA thrives on providing the most comprehensive customer service in the industry, digging deeper to find the right solutions (not just the easy answers), and fostering strong municipal relationships that benefit our clients year after year.


Zoning due diligence is not a product, it is a service.

Hiring the right team makes all the difference.

When you need efficient, confidential, accurate zoning due diligence you can trust, you need KZA.
