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 100 residential communities in 16 states and the District of Columbia. These communities, which comprise more than 29,000 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.

    I worked at Windsor Communities full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great company culture, good pay & benefits and great training department. They put a lot into training employees and they keep their expectations high - you are pushed to do your best and be your best. TONS of opportunity for growth. Very supportive upper management - they are always looking for ways to improve and keeping their employees happy. I only left the company due to my spouse's job relocation and was very sad to leave.

    Cons

    Hours aren't great and work/life balance can sometimes suffer, but this applies to property management as a whole.
