Since establishing the firm over 45 years ago, the co-founders of Realstar are recognized as one of the most enduring partnerships in the Canadian real estate sector. We bring this same approach of consistency, honesty and integrity to all of our partnerships and customers.

Founded by Jonas Prince and Wayne Squibb, Realstar was created to address Canada’s need for high quality, affordable homes to rent. Since that time, we have become one of Canada’s largest private owner-operators of rental properties, with over 25,000 units coast-to-coast. More important to us, is our recognized success as an award-winning service provider to residents. Success in the rental housing sector led the firm into several ventures in the hospitality sector, not only in Canada, but Asia, the US and Caribbean as well.

Since that time Realstar has successfully invested in the primary healthcare, hotel and rental residential sectors, including co-ownership in the UK’s largest ever hotel property transaction and more recently the establishment of the UNCLE brand, a large scale rental housing platform in the UK (also referred to as Private Rental Sector (PRS) or Build-to-Rent).
