About Us

Field Day is a real estate development consulting firm that helps people who are not real estate experts manage their projects. We know how to guide you from concept, through construction, and into operations—on time, in budget, and with ease.

Founded in 2010, we are a 100% woman-owned business. We work with developers, Calmnonprofits, foundations, business owners and government agencies.

Our business is built on the belief that a big real estate project can be a rewarding experience, rather than a stressful one. We’re invested in your success and we give it our all to get the job done. You’ll be in good hands, because it’s what we do every day!
