Vice President, REMS, British Columbia
Lesley joined Colliers in early 2015 as Vice President of Property Management (REMS) working out of the Vancouver office.
Lesley's responsibilities include leading the property management teams in the delivery of service excellence and streamlining operations. Lesley has experience managing all asset classes, specializing in first class office and retail.
Before joining Colliers, Lesley held various senior management positions with Cadillac Fairview, Narland Properties, Brookfield Properties, and Royal LePage.
Lesley is the designated Managing Broker for REMS BC (Licensed for Rental Property Management, Strata and Trading Services).
I have 40 years of experience in real estate management with extensive experience in all asset classes, particularly first class office and retail. I am passionate about commercial real estate management, and use my expertise to help owners and asset managers achieve their investment goals quickly while minimizing risk. Clients know they can reach out anytime - if I don't know the answer, I'll find out.
We are only as good as the teams we lead, and I have successfully mentored many groups and individuals to achieve outstanding results. Clients have been proud of the Industry recognitions we have achieved for their properties, including Office Building of the Year (TOBY) Awards, LEED Certifications, and BOMA BEST Certifications. I was proud to lead the first Canadian property team to win the TOBY Award at the International level.
It's important to know the issues facing real estate owners and how to best position assets for the future, and I've found the best way to stay plugged in is being involved at the Board level. I was proud to be (the first woman) President of BOMA BC and have served on many Boards including BOMA Canada, BOMI International. I have also represented the commercial property management industry on two BC Real Estate Council Committees since 2008.
