What makes us different?

A. J. Johnson Consulting Services, Inc. is a small firm. That is by design – not by accident.

By staying small, we maintain a great deal of flexibility, a collegial atmosphere, hands-on opportunities for each individual, and grassroots ingenuity. With only six professional staff, each person recognizes their full worth to the company, leading to two-way loyalty — in good times and bad.

The single greatest advantage to our small size, and the main reason we resist excessive growth, is the ability of management to be involved in the work process and product. Clients always have the opportunity to work with decision-makers, and no report goes to a client without first having been reviewed by A. J. Johnson.



All of our staff members are experts in multifamily housing programs, and draw on a wealth of knowledge gained through real world experience.



Our knowledgeable staff is dedicated to providing superior service and adapting quickly to each client’s needs.



We work closely with our clients to ensure their specific needs are addressed.



Our ability to leverage the latest technology translates directly into cost savings for our clients.

The federal government announced on October 13, 2021, that the Social Security Cost of Live Adjustment (COLA) for 2022 will be 5.9%, which is the largest increase since 1982 when the increase was 8.7%. This increase will provide an additional $92 per month for the average retiree. This is a huge increase over the 2021 increase of 1.3%. Social Security recipients will receive a notice in the mail in early December showing their new benefit amount. Recipients will see an increase in their January 2022 payment. Those receiving SSI will see the increase on December 31, 2021. Owners and managers of properties that are required to determine the income of residents should use the new COLA SS rate when projecting the income of applicants and residents. This also affects persons receiving SSI, VA pensions, Civil Service Pensions, and Railroad Retirement.
