The following was submitted by Michele Waits, Marketing Director of A.J. Properties.
Commercial Real Estate Developer, A. J. Properties, Inc. is celebrating its 30th year in business; serving both local and national clients from the Odenton Town Center to the “Cross Corridor” area of Baltimore to Washington D.C. and Columbia to Annapolis.
A. J. Properties was founded by Jay Winer in 1983, as a small real estate sales and brokerage company to manage the Winer family holdings. The company is named after Jay’s sons: Adam (successful business owner) and Jason (director of TV shows Modern Family, 1600 Penn and more). Today, the company still develops, consults, constructs, leases and manages commercial properties.
A. J. Properties (AJP) became the facilitator, developer and manager for many projects including renovation and adaptive reuse for Historic Savage Mill in Howard County and commercial and retail projects critical to the development of Odenton Town Center in Anne Arundel County. AJP had a hand in the development of Piney Orchard and several office and retail projects in Anne Arundel County, including Winmark Center (now the Odenton Health & Technology Campus), Academy Junction and the Village at Odenton Station. The company continues to consult on many new developments that are part of the growth of the town center, focusing on office development for the growing healthcare segment.
A. J. Properties’ staff has been together and effective since the company’s inception, with most having been with AJP more than half its 30 years. The company prides itself on getting the job accomplished by being creative and flexible to serve clients’ needs and interests. The company’s experience and track record supporting the success of many small business entrepreneurs makes it uniquely qualified in the market.
