WHAT WE DO
Government Affairs, Municipal Procurement, Consulting and Lobbying
Doing business with and in cities can be a complicated and frustrating endeavor, as every city functions differently and the power brokers change frequently. Joe and Barbara Moore have forged relationships with local elected officials across the nation. We understand how to evaluate your needs and find the most efficient path forward in any city because we know the questions to ask and we know what local leaders need.

Real Estate, Business Affairs, Zoning and
Joe Moore led one of the most comprehensive rezoning processes in the nation in Chicago’s Rogers Park community. For 28 years, he successfully revitalized the Rogers Park community through thoughtful redevelopment and a commitment to preserving housing affordability and economic diversity. Trulia, a national real estate website, named Rogers Park as the top neighborhood in Chicago and one of the top neighborhoods in the nation for “living well.” Navigating a community that is home to people who hail from over 80 different nations and speak forty different languages as well as civic leaders and activists of all bents was no small task. Joe Moore assists the Real Estate and Business community in navigating local processes, overcoming NIMBYism, dealing with difficult bureaucrats, and crafting win-win solutions.
Prior to joining DMO, Barbara owned her own consulting firm and served the Real Estate industry as a Project Manager. She oversaw multi-million dollar residential and commercial development projects, both new construction and adaptive reuse. In her work, she managed the government affairs work of her clients and coordinated the work of architects, engineers, attorneys, construction companies, and Real Estate Agents. She developed proformas and project management timelines and processed construction draws. She shepherded permit applications, redevelopment agreements, business licenses, and zoning changes through the City of Chicago. She understands the needs of our Real Estate clients and knows that what seems a mere day or two lost in a construction schedule can result in a reality of months of lost time to completion and hundreds of thousands of dollars in costs.
Emerging Markets and Disruptive Industries
As new companies, markets and apps change the face of cities, their leaders need help to communicate with elected officials and to maneuver through developing regulations and labor union interactions. Joe Moore Strategies is experienced in traversing these dangerous waters.
Local Governments - National Work
For our national clients with business in multiple municipalities, we can be your one-stop local lobbying shop. We maintain relationships with elected officials, lobbyists, law firms, and corporate leaders across the country and can help you discern when and where you need a lobbyist on retainer, where we can engage directly for one-off needs, or serve as your lead lobbyist with another firm sub-contracted under us.
