Life at our home office

We set about to create an atmosphere where people are encouraged to share their ideas, to develop their paths in a way that utilizes their passions and skills, and to contribute to the greater good. We work hard but we also take time to enjoy each other and the work we do. We believe that because most people spend more time with their co-workers during the week than they do with their families, it’s important that the environment is as engaging and accepting as possible. We’re doing something right, because the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has honored Continental as one of the "Top Workplaces" five times!

Continental team members are dedicated to enriching our wider community. In the past we have helped our local food pantry, done school supply drives, participated in Relay for Life, cooked meals for Ronald McDonald house and supported Milwaukee-area peforming arts. Our newest effort is to raise funds to support Stars and Stripes Honor Flight. Using an under-the-desk cycle, we are attempting to cycle to every Springs community in our portfolio. Follow our progress on our Pedal Pushers Travel Blog.

“When I started with Continental I never thought I’d be where I am today. Continental is very intentional about finding out what you’re really good at, what you really like to do, and then letting you explore ways to use those attributes for personal growth and the company’s benefit. When I started, I wasn’t involved in marketing at all, but I was drawn to it and I think I’m pretty good at it. Continental opened up the pathway for me and has allowed me to grow into the position I currently hold. I love it!”
- Jean Jones, Marketing Manager

Life at Springs Apartments

Working in a Springs Community requires a commitment to Continental's core values, applied to the apartment business. Since our customers make their homes where we work, we take everything personally, in the best possible way. Our co-workers and our residents become like a family. With online ratings that are typically above 85% satisfaction, again, we're doing something right!

We make it a practice to recognize excellence in our team members. We look forward to several Springs Awards that are given out throughout the year for different types of successes, from leasing goals to above and beyond customer service.

“Prior to working for Continental Properties, I worked for property management companies that were not owner managed. Working for Continental has been such as positive experience for me as when owner managed, you feel a part of a greater company. Given this, I have felt how passionate management has been towards developing its people, including me. I have been fortunate enough to have been given multiple growth opportunities and promotions, and am proud to be part of an organization that provides such recognition.”
- Joe Antonino, Director of Quality and Service
