Our extensive knowledge of building inventory also allows you to compare the interior condition to other buildings in the local area.

Property History

Which properties are on the market for the first time? Which buildings were previously listed? And, why didn’t they sell?
Who are the building tenants? What are they like to manage? What’s the building’s reputation?
Who were the owners? Did they take care of the building, or was it neglected?
What are the hidden problems that the seller and listing agent don’t want you to find out?

Multifamily Real Estate Services gets you the story behind the building, so you can be confident in your decision. We maintain a detailed history of all listings in the province. In addition, we have relationships with landlords and property managers that span the entire province.

Property Management

Multifamily Real Estate Services Corporation connects you with reputable property management companies in your market area.

Multifamily Real Estate Services is a licensed property manager, so we know what it takes to be successful. In order to maintain our focus, we do not provide property management services. Knowing which property management companies are good or bad can save you countless problems during ownership.

Less Commission, More Client Profit

As a niche brokerage providing 100% focus in multifamily real estate, we aim to be cost leaders. Less commission fees means more money in your pocket.

Virtually every major commercial brokerage charges their agents a “split” of between 30-50% of commission fees. And, many firms place multiple agents on each transaction, meaning agents are paid even less, further diluting commissions and driving up prices.

At Multifamily Real Estate Services, we have no splits. Seth Baker is your dedicated agent. We aim to provide more value for less fees.

We are the cost leader in multifamily brokerage services, dedicated to maximizing client profits.
