At Short Term Rentals Boston (STRB), we strive to be a leader in the furnished and short-term housing industry here in Boston. In concert with what we do (furnished housing), we place a high value on, among other things, social responsibility and community-minded initiatives. One example of how our business and our values intersect is in promoting economic development in the city of Boston. As a company we are able to further this cause by providing local organizations and businesses with access to much needed furnished housing. Whether we’re hosting members of a multi-national fellowship program in our Quarters™ properties or providing cost-effective housing solutions for start-ups and emerging businesses, we’re proud of the role we play a variety of organizations and clients.
A recent example of this is STRB’s relationship with Our Generation Speaks (OGS): “a fellowship program and incubator where emerging leaders create high-impact ventures. The fellowship establishes a set of innovative enterprises that generate significant social and economic value, while creating a cohort of young Israeli and Palestinian community leaders who cooperate across ethnic and political lines to build shared prosperity within the region.” OGS came to us with the hurdle of providing affordable housing for its fellows, all while being in close proximity to the Mass Challenge offices in Boston’s vibrant and rapidly-developing Seaport District. By working hand-in-hand with the program leaders at OGS, we were able to give their fellows comfortable, well-equipped accommodations, a commute within walking-distance and a taste of what it’s like to live and work in Boston. Here’s what they had to say on their experience:
“Scott and the STRB team were fantastic! They made housing 25 summer fellows an absolute breeze. They were able and happy to accommodate all of our special requests, and they were incredibly diligent in prepping and cleaning the units upon our arrival. Our guests had a great stay and our team enjoyed working with STRB from day one to check-out.”
