Israel Dolgin’s two sons, Kalmon and Neil, joined in the late ’60s and ’70s respectively. Their investments expanded into development and construction of office buildings and shopping centers, medical plazas and industrial conversions in the greater New York/New Jersey markets. Divisions were soon added within the firm for third-party management appraisal services.
Four generations have now managed the company, working diligently in a consistent manner that has established our continued reputation for creativity, resourcefulness and hard work. Our hundred plus years as developers, brokers, and property managers has enabled Kalmon Dolgin Affiliates Inc. to grow from the outer boroughs of NYC, to Long Island, Westchester, New Jersey and beyond. “While we prefer keeping a low profile, we have managed to amass an impressive portfolio of commercial and industrial real estate throughout the country” said Dolgin’s grandson, also named Kalmon Dolgin, “the key to the business’s success has rested on organizational and people skills and a highly developed knowledge of the local markets we play in. Most family concerns never make it past the second generation,” Dolgin said. “It requires a very unique balance of interpersonal relationships, professional respect and planning in order to integrate the different skills that are necessary for each succeeding generation.” Dolgin said the firm’s longevity rested on a firm’s commitment to organization and expansion.
