Our Services

At the forefront and behind the scenes, all AJP associates employ teamwork to demonstrate quality service to our clients.

A. J. Properties can tailor a package of services that includes sales, leasing and tenant representation; development and property management; financing; marketing; consulting and investment partnerships. We offer these services for office, retail, industrial, warehouse and adaptive reuse of properties.

Development

A. J. Properties’ development services help clients maximize the value of commercial land and buildings.

Experienced in office, retail and warehouse/industrial projects, A. J. Properties guides private sector clients through the entire development process. Our comprehensive services include land-use, construction management, brokerage and property management. AJP can also conduct effective marketing programs for a single building or an entire business district.

When AJP developed the former Winmark Center in Odenton, two office buildings consisting of 64,000 square feet, the sophisticated design and high-quality construction helped set a new standard for commercial property in the area. Today, these Class A office buildings have been renamed the Odenton Health & Technology Campus and are home to prestigious tenants such as Johns Hopkins’ Health Center and the Kennedy Kreiger Institute.  An additional 64,000 sq. ft. building is permitted and ready to join the campus.

Other specialized needs can also be met with our knowledge of unimproved land values, existing property values, zoning issues and environmental regulations.  We again participated in the update for the Odenton Town Center Master Plan and are knowledgeable on how it affects local development.

AJP also brokered the assemblage of property in Odenton Town Center to support a mixed use residential/retail complex which is now under construction. The process included consulting with the developer to design and process approvals for the project as well.

From conception to completion A. J. Properties can meet your commercial property needs.

Brokerage: Leasing and Sales

A. J. Properties combines professional real estate expertise with a friendly hands-on approach to client service. Offering sales, leasing, tenant representation and property management.

A. J. Properties uses its extensive business contacts and in-depth knowledge of the local real estate market to effectively represent clients in the sale and lease of office, retail and industrial properties or buildings.

Based in Odenton, A. J. Properties’ specialty is the Cross Corridor, a distinct market stretching from Columbia to Annapolis which includes the Odenton Town Center and Fort Meade areas, the epicenter of Cyber activities in the region.

Property Management

AJP offers comprehensive and effective commercial property management services including lease administration, tenant relations, rent collection, financial reporting, property maintenance, marketing and tenant construction management.  A. J. Properties manages more than 300,000 square feet of commercial properties in the local market.

Construction Management

Our design and development experience includes oversight of the bidding process and all elements of construction from site preparation to tenant improvement work.  The small investment necessary to allow professionals like AJP to manage the project from design to permitting to construction is paid as a function of the cost of improvements, for which there already exists a budget in most cases.  With AJP managing your project over a timeline, items such as lease negotiation, when to have an architect and builder in place, and deadlines for things like permits and rent payments will be managed to your favor.

Tenant Representation

When you are looking to lease space, using AJP’s knowledgeable tenant representation specialists can free you from the time and hassle of searching for your specific requirements. We will locate the space you need, negotiate contract terms with the Landlord, review the lease, and assist in lease execution and occupancy — usually at no charge to the tenant.

Consulting

AJP’s special consulting services can help with determining your space requirements, rent planning, pro formas, financing, space planning and construction management as well as alerting you to other things you may not have thought about. We can use our special experience in operating retail businesses and properties to review your business and financial plan to help ensure that your business will be successful. From conception to completion, AJP can guide you through the process.

Adaptive Reuse

A. J. Properties has long been an advocate of effective land use and ‘recycling’ those buildings who have lived out their prior purpose.  We are pleased to have experience in a variety of project genres.

You may know us for our creative adaptation of historic buildings for commercial use. Our team successfully renovated Historic Savage Mill, a 19th century textile mill, which is now home to retail artisans and craftsmen, as well as the east coast’s largest fine antiques center and a period decor banquet facility catering business and festive affairs. AJP’s talents have created this multi-use restoration to combine the historic structure with a unique mix of retail/studio uses attracting a broad regional market. AJP now manages this complex of 175,000 square feet.

In Odenton Town Center, we assisted in the creation of a skating arena from a former bowling alley and more recently consulted on a Brownfield site which is now home to an apartment complex and ready for additional phases of development. Combining the elements of the subject property, the current market, the local need and some creative thinking, we have been successful in providing empty structures with new life.
