Flake & Kelley Commercial
Flake & Kelley Commercial of Little Rock was formed as Flake & Co. by John Flake in 1979.
Flake, who had spent six years at Barnes Quinn Flake & Anderson, became an icon of commercial real estate development during the go-go 1980s. His status as a deal maker and financial survivor was symbolically crowned with his development of the state’s tallest building, the 40-story Capitol Tower (later named the TCBY Tower, and later still the Metropolitan National Bank Building).
Flake’s partner, Hank Kelley, joined the firm in 1984 after a four-year stint as an associate partner with Barnes Quinn Flake & Anderson. Kelley, whose real estate career began with four years as an appraiser, oversees one of the largest commercial property management portfolios in Arkansas. He has helped broker commercial property across Arkansas.
As of 2011, Flake & Kelley Commercial has more than five million square feet under management, including such developments as the Bank of America Tower and Acxiom Chenal in Little Rock and Baptist Memorial and Springhill Medical in North Little Rock.
