Thank you for your February Statement. I really appreciate your hard work on Parkridge. You are doing all the right things. There are times when the market goes in cycles, it goes down and stays down for quite some time. I know what I am talking about because I have been there before. The market turned down in Toronto and stayed down for five long years and then it came up again. I greatly appreciate you working on the cockroaches and bedbugs which is another major challenge. Managing rental property is a tough job and I am impressed with your commitment to Parkridge. I used to own five small townhouse units that I totally managed for around 13 years and I also acted as a property management for the 30 unit building and as a result, I have a real good appreciation for your hard work. I own two 3 bedroom units at Parkridge under my company name, Ablehills Corporation. Thanks.
I bought my apartment building a little over ten years ago. It was crucial that I have a strong management company I could trust since I live in Ontario. One of the top commercial brokers in Edmonton recommended Braden Equities. I followed that advice and Braden Equities has never let me down.

In our capacity as commercial real estate appraisers and reserve fund planners, I have had the opportunity to work with Bob and his team for close to 20 years on numerous properties, both commercial and residential.
In recognizing the quality of the property reporting and documentation, as well as the obvious physical maintenance of the assets, Braden Equities is a leader in the property management industry. Their knowledge of the physical operations of all aspects of building results in Braden Equities-managed buildings typically operating at a high level of efficiency. They have become a trusted resource in providing advice to our firm as to identifying potential solutions to property inefficiencies that we encounter through the course of our business.
When we take on an assignment and we learn that Braden Equities is the property manager, we know that we will be receiving well-organized and readable statements and documents on a timely basis, as well as exceptional cooperation, which makes our job easier. I would have no hesitation in recommending Braden Equities to my clients who are seeking active and complete property management services.

I highly recommend Braden Equities to all property owners and condo boards. Their hands-on approach to property management has helped over 600 of our owners in more than 10 condominium buildings, increasing their return on investment and managing their cash flow year after year. Braden Equities has managed both the individual rentals and condominium corporation for our clients. I have worked with Braden Equities since 2003 and continue to have them manage our new acquisitions. We love how both Bob and Braden are just a phone call away for us.
I have had the pleasure to work with Braden and Bob Paquette for five years now, since I bought my first Edmonton apartment building in 2010. I have come to rely on their services as an integral part of my business due to their vast experience and expertise in property management, and ability to maximize value of my properties through tight expense control and rental increases. Their documentation is easy to understand and thorough, and they are always available for assistance or advice. I would recommend them to anyone.
