About

Professional Summary

As a Director in the Property Tax Division at Colliers, Saadiq assists companies and landlords in taking a proactive approach in reviewing and analyzing their assessments annually. By doing this, landlords can advise tenants that their best interests are in mind, and that a proactive approach is being taken to reduce their property taxes. Our goal at Colliers is to ensure that our client's property tax burden is fair, and that their assessment is supported by both equity and market value. 

Saadiq is in his 6th year in the industry, and has specialized in various property types including office, hotels, retail and development land appeals.

In his time away from the office, you can usually find him on the golf course or on the slopes! 

Accomplishments

Being in his 6th year in the industry, Saadiq has had a wide variety of experience with numerous different property types, in Calgary and surrounding areas. Prior to working at Colliers, Saadiq worked at Altus Group, where he held progressively senior roles in his time there. In total, he has conducted over 350 individual hearings before the Assessment Review Board, and has been successful in achieving significant reductions for his clients. 

In 2017, Saadiq was an integral part of significant reductions achieved for Downtown Office Buildings. All qualities were reduced substantially, and Saadiq was a part of creating and analyzing the arguments made, as well as presenting them to the Assessment Review Board. A noteworthy success of Saadiq's was when the assessment for a recently purchased Slate Office Building in Calgary was reduced by nearly 50%, translating into a tax savings of over $350,000.

In 2018, one highlight was the successful redcution of the Chevron Building in Calgary - amounting to over $500,000 in savings for the owner. 

In 2019, Saadiq was instrumental in negotiating significant reductions with  the Assessment Department on numerous different proeprty types, particularly office properties,  industrial warehouses and hotels across Alberta. 

Education

Saadiq attended the University of Calgary from 2009 - 2013, and received his Bachelor of Commerce degree in International Business, from the Haskayne School of Business. During his time here, Saadiq was on the Dean's List, and was the recipient of various scholarships including the University of Calgary Admission Scholarship, as well as scholarships from Junior Achievement of Southern Alberta.

A highlight of Saadiq's university experience was when he was able to consult with a publicly traded Oil & Gas Services Company, and advise on how and when to expand their operations to the United States. Years after the consulting project was completed, that company began operating in the United States, in a similar fashion to what was in his team's report and presentation!
