Residential Communities

Canada's world-class quality of life is reflected in the sense of fulfillment we experience living in the homes and communities where we start and end our days. Bentall Kennedy embraces the responsibility of enriching the lives of the residents we serve, enabling them to realize their vision for the present and fulfill their dreams for the future.

Our foundation is service. The comfort and satisfaction of our residents take top priority and guide our day-to-day decision-making and operating principles. From leasing and marketing to property management, technical services and sustainability, we believe in building lasting relationships with our residents and the communities where we operate. Bentall Kennedy Residential currently manages a portfolio of over 5,000 rental units, valued at approximately $1.3B, in key markets across Canada. We pride ourselves on our unique approach to residential community management - one developed through over a century of real estate experience and depth of market knowledge.

This experience aligns to a set of values that drive how we manage residential property to grow asset value, increase resident satisfaction and position the property as a valued and contributing part of the communities where they reside:

  • We get the basics right, then leverage leading edge technologies to create a better residential experience.
  • We adopt a fiduciary mindset and an entrepreneurial spirit to drive net income and cash flow.
  • We empower our teams to make decisions that support our service delivery promise.
