Itâ€™s Your Job
At Realstar, we care as much about our employees as we do about our residents – and it shows. Since 1974, our employees have shared our commitment to provide excellent customer service and the highest quality rental accommodations. Today Realstar is one of the largest and most recognized names in the property management industry, with more than 23,000 rental suites across Canada. Due to our size and track record, we are able to provide a wide range of career opportunities, outstanding advancement potential, one of the most competitive compensation and training programs in the industry, and the opportunity to work and live in different parts of Canada.
Empowering Work Environment
Realstar fosters an environment of trust, in which colleagues work together to accomplish mutual goals. We strive to maintain the highest quality work environments with open management-employee relationships. With the independence to make decisions, employees are empowered to provide the best service to our residents. Our employees tell us that our open and honest relationships with employees and our insistence on workplace autonomy create strong job satisfaction.
At Realstar, independent doesnâ€™t mean working alone. Each employee at a property is part of and supported by an on-site property management team, which includes both on-site staff, as well as territory managers we call District Managers.
Continuous Learning and Development
Realstar encourages the ongoing development of employees for long-term career advancement and satisfaction. We provide our employees with detailed training in all aspects of superior property management. Our customized in-house training programs establish the service standards that differentiate Realstar as a top tier property manager.
Realstar employees receive competitive pay and benefits appropriate to their position. We may include a combination of salary, health and dental benefits, and paid vacation time, as well as the opportunity to participate in a number of bonus and incentive programs. Our staff enjoys employee appreciation events and special celebrations, including annual summer picnics and holiday parties.
Realstar Resident Managers and Assistant Resident Managers are provided with a quality suite as part of their compensation at the property where they work.
Realstar provides property management services to one of the finest portfolios of residential properties in Canada. Employees benefit from working in higher-quality rental communities, which are supported with strategic investments in capital to maintain and enhance their curb appeal and long-term quality.
We continue to outperform our competitors, because we are focused on getting the best results. We are action-oriented, like to make decisions and execute quickly, listen and adapt, and reward our field employees through quarterly bonus programs for achieving pre-defined results. We work to help our employees earn their bonuses through effective training and support.
