Katie Coates Pushes Charity to Overcome Opposition to Real Estate Projects

Katie Coates, coach to real estate developers and author, has developed a program to get approval for development projects. One of the requirements is that developers commit to improving their communities.

Huntington Beach, United States - March 14, 2018 /PressCable/ —

A new book for real estate developers, “Yes Vote: The Public Hearing Plan for Developers” answers the question asked by many project managers: How to overcome opposition?

When opponents are smearing a developer’s reputation in an attempt to defeat a project, developers can take the actions that are outlined in detail in Yes Vote. These tactics work for anyone wanting to increase their odds of success in getting approval from any kind of elected or appointed board.

Katie Coates, coach to real estate developers and author, has worked with developers for more than 20 years and has helped her clients get approval at dozens of public hearings at the city council and planning commission level, as well as regional and state agencies

“Working with clients to get a Yes Vote at their public hearings has been challenging because opponents are not held to any level of truth-telling,” Katie says, “Whereas business people have to represent themselves well, or it will haunt them in the future. The misinformation that’s commonly made up by opponents to development are unconscionable and amount to fear-mongering.”

She also says that the opponents will make slurs against the developers themselves.

“The opponents oftentimes make their attacks very personal,” Katie says, “They often don’t care about the damage they might do to an individual’s reputation.”

Katie Coates helps her clients achieve success by committing to make their communities better places. A long-time volunteer, she encourages them to volunteer for charities in their cities, towns and villages. Service to a professional association or political cause, or volunteer work on behalf of animals, as noble as they are, don’t count as part of the program she has created; the volunteer work must benefit people in the community on a grassroots level.

Katie says, “Those who do volunteer work to benefit other human beings are helping all of us. By working together with community leaders, developers can find supporters, overcome opposition, and communicate more effectively with the decision makers through articulate and credible third-party messengers.”

Sep 25, 2018

LONDON — The Latest on Britain's planned exit from the European Union (all times local): 10:30 a.m. German Chancellor Angela Merkel says an agreement on Britain's future relations with the European Union shouldn't be too vague and is renewing a warning that London can't select benefits of the bloc's single market.

UK's Labour opposition says it will reject May's Brexit deal

Sep 25, 2018

LONDON — Britain's main opposition Labour Party says it will reject Prime Minister Theresa May's proposed Brexit deal with the European Union when it comes to a vote in Parliament. If Britain and the EU agree on a deal, it must be approved by individual nations before Britain leaves. In the U.K. that means a vote by lawmakers, and the math looks ominous for May's minority government. Labour Brexit spokesman Keir Starmer says the party will reject a deal along the lines May is proposing because it does not meet "six tests," including protecting workers' rights and retaining access to...

With newfound aggressiveness, GOP ramps up Kavanaugh fight

Sep 25, 2018

WASHINGTON — Brett Kavanaugh says he won't let "false accusations drive me out of this process" as he, President Donald Trump and top Republicans mount an aggressive drive to rally the public and GOP senators behind his shaky Supreme Court nomination. Trump and Republican leaders accused Democrats on Monday of a smear campaign by using accusations by two women of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh in the 1980s to try scuttling his Senate confirmation. There were no immediate indications that the emergence of a second accuser had fatally wounded Kavanaugh's prospects, but the nominee took the unusual step of defending himself...

Sep 25, 2018

DENVER — Jon Gray 's right arm looked dominant again on a night when Trevor Story's appeared healed. Both were throwing strikes — one from the mound after a few bad outings, the other from shortstop after being sidelined for a week with a sore elbow. Gray pitched seven crisp innings and Story picked up in All-Star form right where he left off by hitting two doubles as the Colorado Rockies rolled to a 10-1 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Monday. Colorado won its fourth straight game since being swept in Los Angeles by the NL West-leading Dodgers, who...

Trump plan to rollback fuel standards to get second hearing

Sep 25, 2018

FRESNO, Calif. — The Trump administration's proposal to roll back national fuel economy standards was headed for its second public hearing a day after California officials and scores of speakers blasted it as a danger to the environment and public health. The second hearing was scheduled for Tuesday in Dearborn, Michigan — a city in a region dominated by the auto industry where it could get a better reception. A major auto industry trade group says it supports annual increases in fuel efficiency, but it also says customers aren't buying more efficient cars. "No one wins if our customers are...
