Ajo Kurian Realtor, Property Management
Ajo’s real estate career began over eleven years ago in property management at AKAM Living Services, a Manhattan-based real estate services firm with a portfolio of over 180 residential and commercial properties under management. This experience provided Ajo with valuable working knowledge of residential and commercial building operations and financial management, as well as, tenant and lease management. During this time, Ajo also played a critical role in the placement of local and national office, retail, and light industrial tenants within the company’s property management portfolio.
In 2011, Ajo was tapped to lead and grow the firm’s commercial, educational, and industrial property management and leasing entity which successfully grew to over 1,000,000 square feet of managed properties under his leadership. In this capacity, Ajo designed the operational platform of the firm and implemented strategies and procedures to foster the growth of the firm’s brand, venture into new markets and property types, establish internal operational procedures, ensure the delivery of superior client and tenant service, and ultimately increase the firm’s revenues.
In 2017, Ajo and his family relocated to Pennsylvania to be closer to family, and where he has been actively involved in real estate investments for the past ten years. Ajo is able to leverage his real estate experience to guide his clients through the various factors involved in residential and commercial real estate transactions. Ajo also serves as an independent consultant to real estate investment and property management companies in the North East. Ajo holds a BS in Business Administration and Finance from SUNY Albany and an MS in Real Estate Finance and Investments from New York University. He is also actively pursuing the Certified Commercial Investment Manager (CCIM) designation.
