HomeSight
Director of Community and Real Estate Development

Uche Okezie is the Director of Community and Real Estate Development at HomeSight, a nonprofit Community Development Corporation in Southeast Seattle whose mission is to promote social and economic equity in order to preserve and enhance economically and culturally diverse communities through affordable homeownership, business development, and community advocacy. 

She manages the development of HomeSight’s commercial and affordable homeownership projects and oversees the project management services provided to non-profit organizations in the Puget Sound area. Most recently she managed the development of single family homes at Greenbridge, King County Housing Authority’s mixed income master planned community and acted as owner’s representative for the Eritrean Association in Greater Seattle during the expansion of their Community Center.  

In 2017 she completed the feasibility plan for Othello Square, a mixed use Transit Oriented Development project at Seattle’s Othello Light Rail Station. Currently she is managing the development of HomeSight’s affordable homeownership cooperative project at Othello Square.

In late 2017 Uche’s role was expanded to include oversight of HomeSight’s Community Development work, including our collaborative Communities of Opportunity program, a coalition of coalitions (40 organizations) working to identify and implement community-led policies and programs to improve health, housing, economic development, and community connections in Southeast Seattle. 

She received her Master of Urban Planning from the University of Washington and is also a certified Project Management Professional and Construction Manager.
