At Realty Trust Group, we are known for our people: their knowledge, experience and integrity. We don’’t “fill positions”. Instead we attract and retain “talent”. Our team members understand our culture and embrace our shared values. The core purpose of Realty Trust Group really comes down to one concept: “helping create places for healing”. In the end, our work is about putting patients together with their healthcare provider—, a powerful motivator and one that rings true regardless of the engagement.

We value relationships, a lot.

Our client relationships are the most powerful testaments to our work and to the value we add. These relationships must be nurtured, respected and protected as they grow stronger over time.


No compromises on ethics. Period. We will always, and in confidence, counsel our clients on the best path for them, even at a loss for ourselves.

We question ourselves and double-check each other.

Quality assurance comes first. Everything is up for review. Anyone can call “time out.” We all make mistakes, but by double-checking, we have each other’s’ back and aggressively protect the integrity of our work.

A culture of self-motivation and execution.

Don’’t wait to be told. Don’’t assume someone else will act. Take responsibility for the work of our company and the best interests of our clients. Own the problem. Share the solution.

Encourage and embrace change.

We must face the reality of change and thrive in an environment of some certainty, but much ambiguity, to find solutions for the challenges of today and tomorrow. Break through the barriers of status quo. Ask ““What if?”” and ““Why not?””

Remember the big picture.

Our work matters to real people. At the end of the day, our projects come down to providing healthcare for patients. It’’s all about the patient and the provider – a point that can get lost in the shuffle.

We cannot expect our clients to trust and respect us unless we adhere to our own core beliefs. That is who we are.
