G&S Group of Companies was founded in 1982 with a single focus: providing the kind of comprehensive, reliable and innovative property and investment-management services that dramatically boost portfolio performance and values. Since then, our firm has grown from a small, regional business, to a nationally-recognized industry leader staffed by highly-skilled real estate management professionals. Our active property portfolio currently consists of thousands of residential and commercial units under management, and numerous future residences under development in major Canadian centres such as Toronto and Ottawa.
Now in our third generation under family management, Toronto-based G&S Group of Companies maintains a strong emphasis on delivering a disciplined and results-driven approach to business. That means continuously reinforcing and reimagining our Integrated Real Estate Model, a strategy which has focused on diversifying our North America-wide service capabilities to include everything from finance arrangement to strategic management.
Our core competencies include:
Rental Property Management Our team has the expertise and experience to provide comprehensive property management services, while highlighting opportunities and implementing plans to improve the management and value of those core assets. Of course, we’ll also develop and execute strategies to design, build and manage capital expenditure projects to improve rental properties—think everything from interior design and energy efficiency upgrades, to developing distinct new brand identities for rental properties.
Condominium Management Managing even the smallest condo portfolio can pose huge challenges to condominium corporations. That’s why we offer worry-free management services designed to deliver consistent, stable condo operating budgets and manage capital improvements to residential condominiums developed either by G&S Group of Companies or third-party developers.
Real Estate Development As a Tarion-certified developer in Ontario since 1988, G&S Group of Companies’ development division, Greatwise Development Corporation, has built a strong reputation for acquiring raw and under-utilized land in fast-growing areas and maximizing density allowances through re-zoning, then redeveloping those properties with new projects. Our full-service team manages the entire development process including land acquisition, approval planning, marketing, sales, construction and final delivery—providing a worry-free, cost-efficient experience for our partners. That expertise extends to property conversions, namely the rezoning, retro-fitting, reimagining and remarketing of former rental buildings to a new generation of discerning home buyers.
Strategic Investments We’re committed to making strategic property investments through the bond and equity markets in conjunction with our affiliated partners Intelligo Capital Corporation and venture capital funds Priveq Capital Funds and Trellis Capital Corporation. This forward-thinking approach offers the flexibility and funding needed to respond rapidly to market developments and seize on investment opportunities as they arise.
