History

A.J. Keilty founded Varsity Communities in Kingston, Ontario when he was just 23 years old, and thus our first Keilty Realty brand was born. From humble beginnings in 2003 to now, the Varsity team has been on a mission to simplify the housing experience for students and their parents by combining the highest quality locations, features and finishes with premium hotel level guest services. A.J. knows a thing or two about hospitality and what it takes to deliver positive guest experiences. He grew up in a hotel, for more than two decades his parents were owners and operators of one of Ontario's Finest Inns, The Gananoque Inn & Spa. Through this upbringing he learned how it’s the small gestures of empathetic service that make the big difference for customers. 

A.J. has worked build hospitality into each of the brands that came after Varsity Communities. As the team continued to grow in the Canadian student housing industry, a new market ripe for disruption became evident; condominium corporation mangagement. Alwington Communities was created to help condominium corporations across Ontario comunicate better with the residents, to provide careful financial stewardship of funds, deliver dynamic property performance, and finally, to support effective community building. Alwington now operates 75 condo minimum corporations in Ontario.

Keilty Realty Corpoation invest directly into eastern Ontario office properties, and provides property management services to the limited partnerships it manages. In addition, to support a growing ecosystem of office tenants, Keilty Realty owns Seaway Coworking at 17,500 sq.ft. shared office community in downtown Kingston, Ontario.
