About the Company

Based in West Springfield, MA, Aspen Square Management is one of the largest privately held real estate investment and property management firms in the US. Founded by entrepreneur, philanthropist and real estate guru, Harold Grinspoon, Aspen offers the financial stability of an organization founded 60 years ago, the energy of a start-up, the close-knit feel of a family company, and significant opportunities for growth.

Known for its fast-paced, entrepreneurial, people-centric culture, Aspen invests heavily in value-add real estate investment opportunities. (In other words, we buy apartment communities, completely renovate, rebrand and reposition them, and then sometimes hold them for the long-term and sometimes sell them.) We’re investors AND owner/operators. Our current portfolio consists of 14,000 apartments located in 13 states throughout the country valued at $2 billion. We employ about 700 employees, with approximately 100 of those employees working in the Greater Springfield area.

You’ll start off getting some short-term, hands-on training on-site at one of our communities. Next, you’ll take on a small District portfolio of multi-state communities under the mentorship of a National Construction & Operations Manager. Once you’ve mastered the “District Role”, your portfolio will grow and you’ll move into a National role where you’ll ultimately oversee a portfolio of multi-family assets of 4,000 - 5,000 units.
