About the team

Realstar is a private company with an established history of operations dating back to the early 1970s. It is controlled by the original two founders who continue to operate the business on a day-to-day basis.

Realstar established its London office in 2002 and today the team comprises more than 30 dedicated asset management and investment professionals based in its Victoria office.

The roles report to Michael North, Executive Vice President of Operations.

Every aspect of living in a big city has improved by leaps and bounds over the last 20 years. The only thing that hasn’t changed is renting a place to live.

Interior design that hasn’t been touched since the 80s. Endless waiting for urgent repairs. Nonsensical agency fees. Feeling trapped into leases when your circumstances change. This is the reality of what your biggest expense gets you these days.

At UNCLE we want to take the ‘lord’ attitude out of the word ‘landlord’. We’re not living in feudal times anymore and we believe people deserve better. We offer a straight-talking, no-nonsense approach for renters who are tired of hard-to-reach landlords and being treated like second-class citizens. We do this by making promises that address the issues customers have told us they actually care about, and back them up with consequences to us if we fail to deliver. We also spend tons of time working with world-class architects and designers to create beautiful apartments and extra spaces like gyms, sky lounges and yoga studios (for no extra charge).
