Property Consultants

As property consultants, we identify the positive and negative attributes of a property, outline our criteria and give recommended options to our clients in a verbal report. This allows our clients to ask questions and engage in a dialogue. Feasibility and highest and best use studies are also offered to help our clients make the most judicious decisions when it comes to their real estate investing.


Reserve Fund Planning for Condominium Corporations and Public Housing

A comprehensive Reserve Fund Study helps provide the foundation for the long-term success of your corporation’s Reserve Fund Plan. Reserve Fund Planning identifies predictable capital expenses such as painting, roofing and paving, then charts a plan for the funding of property maintenance. It is an essential roadmap that condominium owners and managers can follow from year to year to properly maintain their assets and establishes a funding plan that is fair to all owners.

We specialize in conducting reserve fund studies, helping to establish guidelines by which Reserve Fund Plans are managed. We do this by identifying common assets of a given property, establishing repair and/or replacement costs for those assets, then recommending a long-term funding plan. Our plan also offers recommendations on how owners can protect their investments in the long term.
