Ventron Realty Corp. was established in 1993 as a Commercial Real Estate Brokerage in Ottawa Canada and 2001 in Boca Raton, Florida. In it’s early years Ventron specialized in the leasing and sales of retail properties, eventually moving into the brokerage of multifamily properties. From 1993, Ventron grew to become one of the largest multifamily brokerages in Canada, completing transactions that totaled over 10,000 units. The company succeeded by finding under-performing properties in markets poised for growth and selling that opportunity to its strategic partners.
After watching the success of Ventron's clients, company founder, Ron Eisenberg began to see the long-term potential of multi-family investing. The proprietary Strategy he developed for the acquisition of multi-family assets led to maximizing the value and return for his clients and partners. He entered the market aggressively in 2002 with the acquisition of five properties in Tampa, Florida. Since 2002 Ventron has acquired 28 properties in the Atlanta and Tampa market, totaling well over six thousand units. They have since sold 3 in Tampa returning a sizable profit to their investors. They continue their aggressive growth strategy with the long-term goal of becoming a premier property management firm into the next decade and beyond.

This is not achieved by chance, but is a daily endeavor through training, research, empowerment and guidance. Our management team strives to operate in a manner that is not only better than the competition, but a step above.
Excellence in Customer Service
Ventron Management Associates are obligated to deliver world class customer service regardless of their position in the company. Our service teams are comprised of licensed, trained technicians that embrace the commitment of providing maintenance-free living to our residents. Service requests can be submitted by telephone, email or directly to our leasing office, and they will be handled as quickly as possible, usually within 24 hours. At the Ventron, we recognize the responsibility we have to our residence.
Excellence in Marketing
Sales and marketing is the front line of our business. Ventolin designs specific marketing plans for every property tailored to its budget, demographics and submarket occupancy strengths or challenges. In addition to pro-active marketing, we price our units and amenities strategically to ensure rents are maximized and we are at the top of our market. Real estate is cyclical, and it's imperative that new and innovative marketing techniques are used to capture more leases than the competition. Finally, our sales teams receive ongoing training to ensure they have the tools to be the best in the industry, and they are evaluated regularly to ensure the training is being utilized.
Excellence in People
Any business is only as good as the people employed. Ventron is very selective in hiring all positions by not only seeking out people with the right skill set, but those with the right attitude and belief in a better future for not only themselves, but their company. Ventron is a company that believes in promoting from within and in training a leasing agent to someday run their own property. Every position is important and an integral part of our success.
