AVE Careers



AVE is experiencing rapid growth, and we are looking for motivated team members who desire a long-term, extended stay career opportunity within a unique and passionate company.

At AVE, we are more than just a real estate company, we are a people and service-first company. We own and operate beautiful properties, but it's our team members who make the difference. They go above and beyond to deliver the highest level of service to our residents and clients and to make an impact in our communities.

Our values system QUEST stands for Quality, Uniqueness, Excellence, Service, and Teamwork.

While all of these standards are important to the Korman family, service has always been the driving force throughout the company and family history. That commitment to service extends beyond the walls of our beautiful properties. We believe in being engaged corporate citizens - giving back to the communities in which we do business.

Learn more about our current community partners and initiatives and how we're making a difference in our neighborhoods.

When Lea Anne Welsh, COO of Korman Communities and president of AVE, first met Adam Lowy, founder of Move For Hunger, she immediately saw synergies between the organization's operations and culture. Move For Hunger, a nonprofit with one clear, but large mission - to mobilize the relocation industry to reduce food waste and fight hunger - was Lowy's brainchild and the result of his time spent working on moving trucks at his family's 4th generation moving company, Lowy's Moving Service.

AVE and Move For Hunger formalized a partnership in September 2015, seamlessly integrating a program into AVE's daily operations to collect food for local food banks that would otherwise be thrown out when AVE guests or residents move.

In addition, AVE hosts two large food drives every year - one in September for Hunger Action Month and one in November for Thanksgiving. AVE team members also participate in Move For Hunger fund-raisers such as 5ks and truck pulls.

There is a lot of longevity at AVE – team members who have been with the company 10, 15, 20 years, many of them women who have worked hard and achieved success within the organization. 

COO Lea Anne Welsh and the leadership team knew they wanted to partner with an organization that empowered women in need to pursue employment and economic security through apparel, advice, and advocacy. Career Wardrobe was a natural fit. 

Since, AVE has hosted two Professional Clothing Drives at all communities in The Greater Philadelphia Area, sponsored and participated in the organization's annual fund-raiser “Hope’s Night Out,” and hosted their “Suit Up & Meet Up” event at our brand new community in King of Prussia, PA. 

These initiatives have created such excitement internally that our team members are exploring more opportunities to benefit Career Wardrobe like a mentorship program in various skill areas including interviewing, communications, and leadership.

For three years, AVE team members have been participating in the Corporate FunRun series in New Jersey and Suburban Philadelphia to benefit pediatric and blood cancer research and treatment. Anywhere from 15 to 30 team members have enrolled in each 5k annually to support Tackle Kids Cancer and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.


Corporate FunRun’s mission is to promote team-building and health and fitness within companies while giving back to the community.


Tackle Kids Cancer, the official charity of Corporate FunRun North Jersey 5k, is a program supporting the Children’s Cancer Institute at HackensackUMC. All donations made to Tackle Kids Cancer benefit essential clinical care, unique support services, and ground-breaking cancer research to find a cure.


The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, the official charity of Corporate FunRun Greater Philadelphia 5k, aims to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the qualify of life for patients and their families.


It's become a great team-building experience that our team members look forward to every year - at the end of the day, they just want to be together and make a difference in our communities.

Danielle D'Amore, Resident Representative at AVE Union, learned about an opportunity to host a back-to-school supplies drive to benefit Boys & Girls Clubs of America through her local REALTORS® Association Board.

 

A mother, Danielle knew firsthand that starting the school year with the necessary supplies promotes learning, boosts self-esteem, and helps kids get excited for their first day of school.

 

She introduced the drive to her fellow Resident Representatives in New Jersey, and all four communities were eager to participate.

 

Donations of backpacks, binders, notebooks, calculators, crayons, pencils, rulers, scissors, and more poured in and were delivered to students from K-5 throughout New Jersey.

 

Danielle hopes to spearhead this initiative every August.

MANNA recently honored Korman Communities founder Steven H. Korman, who is a longtime supporter of the organization, with the 4th Annual Steven H. Korman Day of Caring. Steven’s closest friends and family, as well as team members from Korman Communities, AVE, and aka, joined him by volunteering in the MANNA kitchen to honor his leadership and dedication to MANNA over the past 11 years. 

Steven recently helped lead MANNA through a capital campaign, resulting in a new state-of-the-art facility, which is now known as the The Steven Korman Nutrition Center. MANNA believes in the power of food as medicine and provides medically tailored meals and education to people who are battling life-threatening illnesses.
