We all start somewhere! For InvestPlus REIT, it was in 2015, in Calgary, Alberta. InvestPlus Real Estate Investment Trust is a private real estate investment trust provides investors an opportunity to participate in the industrial real estate market across Western Canada, without the responsibility of having to own or manage a building themselves. Since then, we steadily grown WITH our tenants, and this is one of the things we pride ourselves on.
We Put Our Tenants First
First and foremost, without our tenants, we just own bricks and mortar. This is at the core of our business and is something we give the highest importance to. Without our tenants, our buildings will just be stagnant spaces, and in the real estate industry, nobody wants that! Our tenants are our NUMBER ONE assets. They are the top driving factor that have contributed and continue to contribute to our upward trajectory.
From the start, we partner with tenants who align with our goals: to scale our business and continue growing—locally and nationally. The better we understand our tenants the more we can understand their needs. This alignment of goals help us see our destination clearly, and with common goals in mind, we are able to provide each other that supportive environment that can push both of our businesses upward.
From our end, we offer the business support that can alleviate some of the load that our tenants have to face. From locating new locations for our tenants, to streamlining their business by standardizing lease terms, we anticipate how to positively impact their business to bring returns to their businesses, and ultimately, ours.
Our Relationship with Our Tenants
We differentiate ourselves from other real estate/commercial space providers by building a genuine and solid relationship with our clients. We pay attention to their needs and hear them out—communication is key! It is imperative to hear out their concerns and keep ourselves updated with their changing goals so we can find ways to provide business support where we can. By focusing attention on what our tenants need, we create the business model we want, but we also develop sustainable return for our unit owners. With this kind of business synergy, everybody benefits and that’s the kind of environment we’re after. The majority of our tenants operate internationally within the transportation, e-commerce, energy sectors and distribution services.
Whether our tenants are looking to grow locally or nationally, we’re prepared with real estate solutions to grow alongside them. We believe that tenants shouldn’t have to start over from square one when they relocate or expand to a new region. By striving to be their one-stop-shop for real estate solutions, offering real estate solutions and communicating to our tenants that we will be with them along the way, we lessen the burden that comes with expanding their business. This allows our tenants to bravely entertain the prospects of expansion, and at the same time, we are able to provide valuable insights on locales they may have their sights on.
With our philosophy, we nurture a space for them to grow their business, and simultaneously find creative ways to grow our business as well.
