Windsor Communities – Why Work For Us?


undefinedPremium Living Experience

Our residents enjoy beautiful homes in excellent locations, with no home ownership hassles. Better yet, we offer superb customer service, resort-style amenities, and the reassurance of 24-hour emergency maintenance service.

History

Throughout its long history, Windsor Property Management has sustained a reputation for outstanding professional property management with an emphasis on service. The company has achieved a national presence through continued expansion.

A Tradition of Achievement

Windsor first entered the real estate arena in 1960, with the renovation of three apartment buildings in Cambridge, MA. Two years later, the company developed another property in Norwood, MA. Since then, Windsor has managed properties in 22 states in excess of 40,000 apartment homes. Today our portfolio extends from California to Massachusetts including over 80 residential communities in 16 states and the District of Columbia. These communities, which comprise more than 22,000 apartment homes, are currently located in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, West, Southeast, and Southwest regions of the country. Windsor maintains an attentive owner relationship with all of the properties to be able to immediately respond to the needs of its residents and invest in the communities’ continued excellence.

A privately held company, Windsor is based in Boston, MA. The company maintains its strong financial foundation through vigilant management and selective growth.

Windsor Communities are affiliated with The General Investment & Development Companies of Boston, Massachusetts.

    I worked at Windsor Communities full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Expectations are clear and the training is there for you, just sign up! The properties, even if older, are very well maintained, making it an easy sell. I always felt valued as an employee. The commission structure and hourly pay is better than most other companies. The benefits are better too, $1000 a year to buy new clothes! Yes, working weekends is a must, but most properties have shorter hours which is nice. They offer more paid holidays than most companies. I always felt like the employee & the customer were most valued with Windsor, more than the dollar.

    Cons

    Smaller company, means not a lot of room for promotions. Properties are few and not too close to each other, which is hard if you want to work at one property and live at another. There is some favoritism, but also opportunities for those who work hard. They don't fire people. This is also a good aspect, but if you have a bad employee in your team it takes a long time to get rid of them, if you ever do.

    Advice to Management

    Build more communities and watch out for favoritism.
