Angus

Property Inspector/Showing Agent

I enjoy my position at Upper Edge for a few reasons. Since a young child I have always been super interested to see and explore different parts of my city, so having a job that keeps me mobile is naturally a very good fit for me. However, even more than this I would say I truly love interacting with lots of different people from all walks of life and helping to find a housing solution that fits them well. And the fact that I get to enjoy both these aspects at this job truly makes me happy to come into work every day.

In my free time I enjoy working out, going for runs and being physically active in general. I also consider myself an outdoorsman and I enjoy going on hikes, cross country skiing in the winter and fishing and swimming in the summer.

Mario

Property Inspector/Showing Agent
I like meeting people from all walks of life and finding the right home for them. I get satisfaction from helping existing clients solve their issues and prospects move into a new home. I love the outdoors, camping, fishing and spending time with my family and grandchildren.

Jimmy

Property Inspector/Showing Agent
I like meeting people and the ever-changing way we do business. Away from work I enjoy camping, watching movies and spending time with close friends.

Kris

Team Case Coordinator

I enjoy the challenge of bridging the gap between landlord and tenant, while working on new ways to approach the ever-evolving property management puzzle.

Born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa, being an avid surfer/bodyboarder now living in Winnipeg didn’t quite work out, so these days I spend most of my time writing and recording music, playing in bands and spending time with my wife.

Tasha

Team Case Coordinator
I enjoy helping people in anyway I can, even if it’s lending an ear. I love spending time with my husband, two girls, 3 cats and dog – whenever I have a free moment I attempt to finish my crochet projects.

Amanda

Team Case Coordinator
I love helping clients feel secure and meeting their needs with confidence and efficiency. I enjoy spending time with my son Lincoln and my dog Sadie.
