Testimonial

“I lived at a CASTO community for two years, moved away, and after being an unhappy resident elsewhere, I went back my CASTO community. Immediately after being back on property, I knew I was home. While filling out the application, on a whim I asked if they were hiring. They weren’t at the time, but a week later a leasing position opened up.After applying for the position, the interview was set up and long story short, when the Regional Manager walked in to the interview, the Property Manager was already doubled over laughing at one of my jokes, and I felt pretty great about the interview from that point on. Three years later, and I’m just as happy to call CASTO my home and my company.”

Jordan M.

Testimonial

“I’ve worked for CASTO since 2011 and have always felt proud to represent this company. The culture is what makes CASTO stand out. There’s a sense of comfort talking to a co-worker that I can also get talking to one of the Board of Directors members. This company genuinely cares about its associates in a way I hadn’t experience prior to working here. The opportunity for growth is one of my other favorite things about CASTO. There are always new ways to challenge yourself, opportunities to work with other departments and associates who are willing to show you something you don’t have experience with. This is the company I plan to retire with!”
