FirstService Residential Alberta adapts quickly making waves in multi-family property management
CALGARY (May 11, 2021) – FirstService Residential Alberta believes people investment, partnerships and business strategy are the “secret sauce” as the firm evolves its property management portfolio.
President, Glenne Manlig has strengthened the portfolio by growing his team with the appointment of Robert LeParque, Regional Director, Edmonton, and Andrew MacLachlan, Regional Director, Calgary and Broker of Record. They join Karen Keebler, VP Client Accounting along with long-standing members of the team. Manlig is proud to be leading such a high-caliber group.
“Robert’s superior experience and leadership in multi-family residential, Andrew’s background as president for Habitat for Humanity, and Karen’s experience as a Chief Financial Officer, ensures our residential communities and property owners benefit despite the upheavals in our economy over the last few years.”
Continuing, Manlig says, “The property management industry shifts with the market, and moving with it means we must invest in our people.” The organization has grown over the last year by 50 percent, adding much-needed jobs to a beleaguered Alberta economy.
With high-profile clients like Colliers International, Manulife Investment Management, Pangman Developments, and the Katz Group, the team continually proves its capability of meeting the needs of its owners, boards and resident communities. “We’re Alberta’s leading property management company because we act as a trusted advisor and have extensive knowledge of our local market,” says Manlig.
Partners Pangman Developments and Colliers International are happy with the benefit FirstService Residential adds to their portfolios. “FirstService Residential adds value not only by providing customized services and in-depth expertise, but their local knowledge of the Alberta market makes them indispensable in serving our clients,” says Chief Operating Officer Ben Dutton, Pangman Developments. Daryl Babb, Vice-President Real Estate Management Services Alberta, Colliers International agrees, saying, “As our trusted advisors, FirstService Residential takes our needs very seriously and their responsiveness to pivot and change where required provides the flexibility we need in a property management partner.”
The team’s local expertise shows. FirstService Residential Alberta partners with more than 275 communities across the province. Whether managing a range of multi-family rental assets or condo communities like Calgary’s Nuera Alura, Avenue West, and The Verve, along with Edmonton’s The SKY and The Legends Private Residences, and Symphony Towers, FirstService Residential Alberta provides valuable services that meet clients’ and communities’ unique needs.
