I believe our communities deserve our best...
...and I am here to help you create your best work - a project that both enhances the community and is financially successful.
What I Do
to provide a timely and accurate land use analysis.
on properties highest and best use.
I GENERATE IDEAS
that go beyond the status quo.
new and seasoned developers to produce quality projects.
Who I work with
Development professionals and organizations that want to complete
a project with meaning and purpose, but are unsure of how to get started.
New development professionals that need assistance navigating
city planning, building codes, and neighborhood opposition.
Seasoned development professionals that need additional staff
to handle day-to-day coordination with city departments and neighborhoods.
If any of this sounds like you, let's get started!
Assess and Advise
I assess your needs and advise on next steps.
Before diving in, I access your project's needs and provide preliminary advisement, with input that ranges from project design to financing. This soul searching process is free; oh, and fun.
Some call it due diligence, but that's boring.
I could provide you with the basic land use analysis, but why stop there? I do my research, and then generate ideas that offer the highest and best use for your site. I also define the project's goals and mission. This can be done in a variety of ways - case studies, tours, brainstorming sessions. I may also bring in design professionals to help visualize your idea.
I stand out front, so you don't have to.
You've settled on an idea, now you have to engage the community and receive feedback. I help you craft your message and build relationships. Don't worry, you've engaged me from the beginning, so your project is more likely to be received in a positive light.
Approvals and Build
Applications and public meetings, I can do that too.
Let me help you submit the necessary applications, and attend internal and public meetings on your behalf.
Real Estate Services
Because I'm multi-talented...
I provide traditional real estate services. By now I have intimate knowledge of the project, and would be the best agent to market and sell your project to the community. In addition I speak, and provide training on topics related to urban planning and community development. Return to my SilverPointe Properties website to learn more.

Zone Change allowing 7 residential Units
"Working with Tifinie has been an invaluable experience. We came to her with a piece of property, a general concept, and a lack of experience. Working together, we were able to put together a plan that would meet the goals of the planning department early in the process, which allowed us to focus on engaging neighbors and building support for the project. Tifinie was with us through the ups and downs of the project, working as a partner to navigate each challenge that arose. She helped moderate neighborhood meetings to make sure we stayed focused, and her knowledge of planning and zoning was invaluable in those discussions. I have recommended and will continue to recommend Tifinie to my developer clients. Her knowledge, drive, and demeanor are major contributing factors to the success she has obtained, and the future successes she is sure to have." - Justin Mundie, Realtor, Village Real Estate

Infinity Fellowship Church
BZA Approvals to allow the operation of a Church
"We called on Tifinie Capehart when we were seeking a Special Exception before the Nashville Board of Zoning Appeals for our church. Sometimes, these situations can be difficult to navigate, but Tifinie's professionalism, demeanor, and almost encyclopedic knowledge of zoning and planning policies made the road much easier to travel. She effectively guided our team to success with a thorough, first-class presentation. Purchasing, planning, visioning, community engagement--Tifinie does it all and does it exceptionally well. She is the living embodiment of cutting through the red tape, and I highly recommend her services. She is one of Nashville's brightest stars." - Rev. Jeff Obafemi Carr, Founder and Chief Spiritual Officer, Infinity Fellowship Interfaith Gathering
