Calgary, AB Hope Street Real Estate Corp, - an innovative tenancy management firm specializing in residential rental housing, was awarded "Property Manager of the Year" at the Calgary Residential Rental Association Awards Gala on Friday, June 10, 2011 at The Delta Hotel in Calgary.
"This award is a huge win for us", said Shamon Kureshi, President & Managing Broker of Hope Street. "I feel it recognizes the success we've achieved for our clients by helping them stabilize their investment real estate instruments and tenancy management needs through our innovation and new channels of creative production." Hope Street edged out numerous other landlords and managers including Boardwalk REIT and several other national players for the highly contested award.
"I am aware of the selection difficulty that the awards committee had this year as a result of the large number of quality nominations." noted Keith McMullen, President of the Calgary Residential Rental Association.

"Hope Street has worked very hard to establish themselves one of the province's leading modern rental agencies," remarked Calgary commercial lawyer and gala sponsor Alice H.T. Hua. "They've really been instrumental in rethinking and reshaping the old agency model away from 'push' style management and towards true engagement of all stakeholders through things like social media, mobile devices, and search engine marketing on search pages like Google. Their forward thinking really stands apart."
