On September 1, 2011, Daniel Drimmer launched Starlight Apartments. Specializing in residential rental apartments and condos in Canada, the company offers over 5,500 units to renters from Nova Scotia to British Columbia and all major cities across the Great White North.
While a majority of the properties available are on the East Coast, Starlight President Daniel Drimmer is a resident of Toronto and the company is based there, they offer a number of units on the West Coast. Some of the cities covered include Victoria, Port Moody, Mission, and Abbotsford. There are also rentals available in New Westminster, and Coquitlam.
Many of these communities are suburbs of Vancouver, the jewel in the crown of Canada’s West Coast. Vancouver is the 3rd largest city in Canada, with over 2.3 million people living and working in the Greater Vancouver metropolitan area. Founded in 1867 as a logging town, the city now counts tourism and film production as major industries, along with forestry. It is a major sea port for the West Coast and boasts an ethnically and linguistically diverse population.
Moving a bit further inland, but still in the Western section of Canada, Drimmer’s company offers many units in the city of Calgary, the 5th largest metropolis in the country. With easy access to the gorgeous Canadian Rockies, Calagary is a great spot for vacation rentals as well as for those who are considering emigrating northward.
The company’s website is a good example of the modern real estate site. It offers interactive maps and virtual tours as well as the ability to filter searches by property type and amenities as well as cost. Drimmer was one of the first to utilize these online tools when he was heading Transglobe Property Management through the 1990s and 2000s. Starlight Apartments, and other apartment sites in Western Canada, make good use of these tools and other features that the modern apartment hunter demands. That’s what makes them popular with prospective tenants.
