How it Began

In Autumn 2021, AAOA opened AAOA Properties, a California Real Estate Brokerage specializing in investment properties. Managing Director Allen Artcliff-Cronrod quickly realized the need to expand the AAOA Properties reach nationwide, to assist members in buying and selling their rental properties in the hottest, or often overlooked markets across the country.  Slowly AAOA’s affiliations with the biggest names in multifamily grew, with brokers such as Marcus & Millichap, SVN, Capstone, Berkshire Hathaway, CBRE, and KW Commercial. 


Brokers with Rental Industry Experience

Our collaboration with brokers will enable real estate investors to tap into their extensive knowledge and expertise. These brokers possess in-depth market insights, including local trends, property valuation, and investment strategies. By leveraging their expertise, our members can make well-informed investment decisions and navigate the complex real estate landscape with confidence.

$1,000 When You Close Your First Deal

Whether you’re buying or selling, if you use an AAOA affiliated agent or broker, you’ll get a check for $1,000 when you close your first deal. It literally pays to list or sell your property with one of our preferred agents or brokers. 

Free Marketing for Members Selling Their Rentals

We will also now provide members using an AAOA affiliate broker free marketing to help them sell their property faster. Through this service, members can leverage AAOA’s platform to promote their rental properties to over 140,000 potential buyers, maximizing exposure and increasing the chances of a successful sale.

This comprehensive marketing package includes:

  • A featured property listing on AAOA.com
  • An email blast about your property to investors near you
  • Targeted advertising on AAOA.com
  • Advertising in RENT Magazine reaching nearly 200K rental industry professionals
  • Announcement in AAOA Today eNewsletter sent to 76K subscribers

Off-Market Opportunities

AAOA’s new partnerships provide enhanced access to a wide range of off-market properties. Through our extensive network of brokers, real estate investor members will gain exclusive insights into properties that are not publicly listed, giving them a distinct advantage in their quest for lucrative investment opportunities. These off-market deals provide investors with the potential for greater returns, reduced competition, and increased negotiation power.

Tax Deferment, Financing, and Insurance Options

Another significant benefit of this partnership is the streamlined access to tax deferment services such as 1031 exchanges. AAOA’s trusted tax strategists provide free consultations to help determine the best way to reduce, defer, or eliminate capital gains when selling your investment property.

You can also get a free quote from AAOA’s network of lenders who can help finance your deal. Often, they are able to provide better rates and terms than your own bank. Our network includes specialists in multifamily, construction, commercial and other rental property. 

If you are purchasing a new property and are shopping for a better rate on insurance, you can also get a free quote from insurance companies that focus on policies for real estate investors. Going to the same insurance provider as your personal auto or home policy is typically limited and can leave you with a higher insurance bill and less coverage. We’ll connect you with our experts to get you the best policy for your needs. 


The partnership between the Apartment Owners Association and 100 brokers signifies a significant step forward in empowering our real estate investor members. Through this collaboration, we aim to provide enhanced access to off-market properties, leverage expert knowledge and services, and foster a vibrant community for networking and collaboration. We are excited about the immense potential this partnership holds for our members and look forward to a prosperous future together.
