The son of a prominent Los Angeles architect, Boaz learned design, construction and development at an age when most people are still learning to drive. By the time he was 24, Boaz had worked his way up to Executive VP of Construction and Development, assuming full control of both the development and construction affiliates of Kozar Properties, Inc. As co-founder of Ketter Construction, Inc., Boaz combines his expertise of architecture, interior design and development with his extensive knowledge of construction to offer a unique “one-stop-shop” experience. A hands-on executive, Boaz has been called a “visionary,” a designer and developer known for creating viable solutions to seemingly intractable problems. His authoritative understanding of both design and construction disciplines allows Boaz to communicate effectively across the continuum of any project, and his affable nature has created harmony out of the occasionally discordant process of commercial development. Boaz has overseen projects as wide-ranging as affordable housing developments to luxury Beverly Hills condominiums. He designed and developed the first buildings constructed over the existing subway tunnel in Koreatown and brings his unique perspective and onsite problem-solving skills to every development in which he is involved. In all, Boaz has personally managed and executed real estate projects totaling more than $300 million, ranging from custom single-family homes to large-scale commercial and mixed-use projects.
