He has a deep understanding of available default resolution strategies for government-aligned property assets, including HUD, Rural Development, and LIHTC affiliations.

A.J.’s industry achievements have positioned him to receive several top awards by the various multifamily trade organizations, including the prestigious “Top Broker Award” in 2016 and 2020 (CoStar Power Broker), and the highly regarded “Top Deal Maker” award in 2012 (LoopNet).
