History

A.J. Keilty founded Varsity Communities in Kingston, Ontario when he was just 23 years old. From humble beginnings in 2003 to now, our 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 memorable 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. 

It became evident that a new market was ripe for our disruption in mid-2010s; the management of not-for-profit condominium corporations. We created Alwington Communities to help condominium corporation boards across Ontario communicate better with their owners, residents, and vendors to provide careful financial stewardship of funds, deliver dynamic property performance, and finally, to support effective community building. Alwington now manages 75 condo minimum corporations across Ontario.

Originally formed in 2017 to own our real estate brands, and to allow our colleagues to hold equity in their businesses, Keilty Realty Corporation now also provides private equity real estate asset management services. As a general partner we invest along side our limited partners in eastern Ontario office, industrial, retail and residential properties. 

In 2019, to support the needs our our office tenants in new ways, Keilty Realty created Seaway Coworking, a 17,500 sq.ft. shared office community in downtown Kingston, Ontario. Students, freelancers, remote teams, and entire companies, experience community and office hospitality at Seaway Coworking and Keilty Realty Corporation office properties.
