About Us

OUR COMPANY

In 2005, LS Properties was formed with a view of acquiring high-quality properties in the multi-tenant residential, retail and industrial sectors which met the following criterion:

1)    Attractive location;

2)    Well built infrastructure;

3)    An attractive rent roll with the ability to continue to improve cash flow.

With a dream and desire to grow a portfolio of income producing properties we acquired our first commercial property back in 2005. We saw untapped value in our first property, believed we could add value and reposition the rents upwards. We took the risk and placed our life savings to acquire this first property.  Since then LS Properties has grown exponentially by uncovering exceptional investment opportunities and adding value through strategic asset management. We now have over 55 commercial buildings, 400 commercial tenants and +/-1,500,000sf.

We continue to evaluate each acquisition on the metrics noted above.

Through active management, we continuously evaluate and assess each individual property including consideration of:

1)    Renewals of existing leases or replacement of existing tenants where required;

2)    Evaluation of maintenance and capital requirements for each property including establishing multi year maintenance programs;

3)    Consideration and placement of debt on each property as appropriate;

4)    Through our partnership with, Green Valley Management Ltd., first rate hands on property management.  This relationship includes cultivation of key relationships with tenants and key suppliers to ensure optimal performance of each property.”
