Director of Talent Management

Everyone needs a good wingman. The best partnerships have that indefinable characteristic. It’s pure magic. It’s perfect chemistry.

In 1999, building on his family’s 40+ years of multifamily experience, Dwight Dunton III started Bonaventure Realty Group in the spare bedroom of his rented apartment. Bonaventure was built around a unique concept - success isn't as much about the properties as it is about the people. With a great property and average people, you still get average results; but, if you have great people you can consistently beat the market. At the time, Dwight had more fingers on his right hand than he did employees. Since then, Dwight's innovative people strategy has helped Bonaventure become one of the preeminent boutique management and development firms in the Mid-Atlantic Region.  We are always looking for A-Players to join our team and help us grow!

Provide our employees with a fun environment for personal growth, financial security, and career advancement while fostering a "sense of family."
