A total of 29 associates will also join FirstService Residential as part of the acquisition.

“We are pleased to be welcoming a new family of valued clients and experienced associates with our acquisition of the Colliers’ portfolio,” said Scott Douglas, President of FirstService Residential B.C. “Our goal is to make a difference for the clients we serve by providing exceptional service. The new associates joining our team provide a depth of experience in professionally managing rental properties and investor units that will help us continue to add value for our clients while enhancing the lifestyles of those we serve.”

In addition to its strata management portfolio, this acquisition makes FirstService Residential one of the leading management companies for purpose-built rental properties and investor units across Greater Vancouver.
