July 9, 2021

Celebrations of success are a common thread throughout Fairfield’s various business lines. Whether it’s recognizing our associates for outstanding effort, reaching stabilization at our apartment communities, breaking ground on new projects, celebrating the grand openings of new communities, or looking forward to the acquisition of many additional properties and projects, there’s always one central element behind Fairfield’s success – our people.

From providing extraordinary safety protocols and a variety of compassionate considerations for unexpected lifestyle changes to emphasizing diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging in everything we do, Fairfield’s top priorities continue to be our associates and our residents.

And for over 35 years, our associates have recognized the benefits of working at Fairfield while joining our mission to create better living for better lives.

Together, we create better living for better lives.


Fairfield is an Industry Leader Offering Careers Nationwide Across Many Disciplines

It all starts with the right career fit. At Fairfield, creating better living is all about expert property management – from the ground up. As a leader in the multifamily industry, Fairfield’s turnkey approach to multifamily residential construction, real estate investment, and property management provides many career opportunities with plenty of advancement options.

Whether you’re interested in construction careers, leasing careers, property management careers, managing associates, managing assets, project management, acquisition, disposition, or maintenance services, Fairfield can use your talents at one of our many apartment communities nationwide or in one of our corporate offices.

From luxury new apartment homes in urban or suburban infill neighborhoods to tax credit affordable properties to corporate hubs, Fairfield offers unique work environments for all its associates. We want our associates to enjoy a rewarding career in property management in an environment they love with a culture that values teamwork, honesty, integrity, and professionalism.

Why Is Fairfield The Best Place To Work?

Ask a new hire why they chose a career at Fairfield and the answer might very well be “because of the feeling of a welcoming environment.”

“AMAZING company… We LOVE Fairfield!”
– Chris Kiessling, Project Manager, Affordable Housing via LinkedIn

Or, the answer might be because of the “prevailing theme of tenure,” which HR hears regularly. Many of our associates have celebrated more than 10, 15, and even 20 or more years with Fairfield, and it’s a testament to our welcoming, inclusive culture that is open to new ideas, promotes growth, and puts people first. We don’t just list our 5 core values of Integrity, Mutual Respect, Passion, Transparency, and Trust, we live them authentically every day!

The People Make Fairfield Great

Ask tenured associates the same question and the answers are similar: “The atmosphere and the people keep me around.” Being on a team with so many hard-working people and watching them grow is “an opportunity.” Some would agree it’s a necessity for work satisfaction.

“I am so honored to work with such a great group of people.”
– Brett A. Stevens, Vice President, Property Management via LinkedIn

When it comes to success, the Fairfield brand speaks for itself because of the people behind it. Our associates know the high-quality product we deliver and the values we embody to achieve our goals—that’s what keeps them interested and inspires retention. You’re never just a number with Fairfield, you’re an integral part of our mission to create better living for better lives. And that mission doesn’t just apply to residents; we offer a robust array of training programs to help our associates grow and develop their careers and personal lives.
