Chard is proud to announce the formation of Chard Property Group (CPG), a fully integrated property management company and sister company to Chard Development.
“Chard Property Group grew out of a desire to bring a fully integrated, knowledge-based approach to property management,” said President and CEO, Byron Chard. “We recognized the value in providing services that extend through development and into property management. We created CPG to bring a dedicated focus to both client and tenant satisfaction through a comprehensive management program.”
CPG offers property management services across many asset classes – including residential rental, office and commercial assets – in Western Canada. Services include tenant relations and retention, accounting and reporting, lease and contract administration, property maintenance, capital planning, personnel training, and quality assurance. Services are available to select third-party property owners whose assets align with Chard’s strategic value add approach and expertise.
Led by Vice President of Property Management, Renee St. Germaine, CPG assumed responsibility for property management of three significant real estate assets on April 1, 2023.
“Chard’s history of building long-lasting, respectful relationships that exceed expectations forms the foundation of our property management concept and supports our commitment to integrity, accountability, professionalism, and service excellence,” said St. Germaine. “My team is thrilled to be working across asset classes to ensure operational efficiency, drive asset value and exceed expectations at both the partner and tenant level.”
About Chard Property Group
Chard Property Group operates based on five founding principles. Every part of the Chard Experience is tied to these five principles to ensure the high-level of care and diligence that both building owners and tenants expect and deserve.
The CPG team strives to go above and beyond for tenants, clients, and investors. Continuous improvement and accountability through tenant surveys, digital KPI’s, and quick repair turnarounds on site ensure the satisfaction of the people who live and work in CPG managed buildings.
Through a dedicated team of experts, CPG brings efficiencies to building operations. CPG understands maintenance cost requirements for common areas and building functionalities, and through strong industry relationships delivers timely services and advantageous pricing.
CPG’s streamlined process carries through from marketing to leasing and operations – resulting in qualified leads that convert into satisfied tenants, efficiency in leasing, and lower vacancy and operating costs.
From well-kept residential amenity spaces to the retailers that set up roots in CPG’s buildings, fostering community is an essential part of the Chard Experience.
