About The Chazen Companies
Our company was founded by Milton Chazen, the quintessential self-made man. An engineer and entrepreneur, he was brilliant, dynamic, determined, and driven to excel. Milton started the business with a single service and a sole employee. Assisted by his wife Fay, he spent long hours in the field surveying land for clients.
Milton and Fay’s legacy is the source of our success. The character traits that built our business since 1947 continue to distinguish our company today.
Chazen has expanded greatly over the past few decades. Yet, we remain a family-run company, rooted in Main Street values. Chazen is now a mid-size firm that is regional in reach with operations throughout New York State. Headquartered in Poughkeepsie, we also have branch offices in Troy and Queensbury.
We represent many types of clients:
- Higher Education
- Mixed Use Development
- Sustainable Communities
- Urban/Suburban Redevelopment
