Monarch operates unlike other real estate investment groups, which is why we beat industry standards in everything we do. Monarch is among the top 25 multifamily owners in the country, 10th.

We do everything possible in-house, including property acquisition, asset management, property management, maintenance, accounting, marketing, training, legal and we even have capital project crews such as parking lot seal coating, roof crews and major exterior painting crews! This means that you will see how a full-service investment group operates, and not have experience gaps with contracted management pieces.

-Possible access to multiple site operations giving you several perspectives
-Possible affordable housing management exposure
-You won’t just be filing, archiving, making coffee or doing busy work. Through our mentorship and guidance, we expect our interns to pull their fair share of responsibilities, and we are not afraid to let them get involved in all aspects of operations.
