Founded in 1904, Kalmon Dolgin Affiliates (KDA) has grown into one of the New York metropolitan region’s leading Commercial and Industrial Real Estate Firms. We specialize in all aspects of real estate services for developing, managing, selling, leasing and marketing commercial and industrial property.
Kalmon Dolgin Affiliates (KDA) brings over a century of real estate experience and innovation for buyers, sellers and tenants. KDA’s highly-trained professional brokers offer clients a practical, street-wise approach to commercial and industrial real estate brokerage, leasing and sales, supported by the latest in real estate marketing, management and research technology.
Headquartered in Brooklyn, Kalmon Dolgin Affiliates is also a market leader in the conversion of industrial buildings into mixed commercial and residential use. We provide our clients with significant and long-standing national real estate expertise as operators of a portfolio of over six million square feet of industrial, office, medical and retail space in ten states through our management arm, KND Management Co., Inc.
Our long-standing clients range from Institutional Funds and Fortune 500 companies to local owners and tenants. Our commitment to forging deep, long-term relationships has been of proven value to clients, vendors and brokers. Since 1904, this commitment to personal involvement has provided our clients the assurance of continuity from our senior management team to support staff who’ve been with KDA for multiple decades.
Now in its third and fourth-generation of family leadership, KDA’s co-presidents are Kalmon Dolgin—the namesake grandson of the firm’s founder—and Neil Dolgin, Kal’s younger brother. Having both worked at the firm as teenagers, Kal and Neil formally joined KDA in the late 1960s and early ’70s respectively. After earning his undergraduate degree from Syracuse University and a Juris Doctor degree at Syracuse University College of Law, Kal chose to leave the formal practice of law after his uncle Morris fell ill and joined the family business in 1968. Neil joined the firm in 1974 after attending Denver University as an undergraduate where he played soccer, received his bachelor’s degree in accounting, marketing, and finance, and then earning his MBA in Urban Development from Syracuse University.
Under their respective leadership as co-presidents, KDA expanded their commercial and industrial real estate business from the outer boroughs of New York City to Long Island, Westchester, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Albany, NY, and beyond. The company also established a division for third-party management and appraisal services, which integrates all aspects of real estate operations under one roof.
Along with the two Dolgin brothers and KDA’s team of professional brokers and staff, the firm’s fourth generation is represented by Kal’s son Josh and Neil’s son Grant, who serve as vice presidents. Also a graduate of Syracuse University with a master’s degree in real estate from NYU, Josh joined the firm in 1994. He is responsible for KDA’s acquisitions, asset management and financing, and creating a network of management, leasing and support personnel spanning from Florida to Maine to Colorado to handle the firm’s out of state properties. Grant, who graduated from Brandeis University with a BA in Economics and International Business, joined the firm in 2007. In his 12 years at KDA, he has been involved with all front-line aspects of the firm and focused primarily on brokerage and property management, representing both in-house properties and 3rd party landlords.
At KDA, we are family. Our success is built on strong values, integrity, innovation and the shared loyalty we have to our vendors, brokers and clients. No matter what your real estate needs might be, Kalmon Dolgin Affiliates wants to be your trusted partner.
