“We will do what it takes to help you realize your full potential through mentoring, skills training and financial support.”
Property Management (PM) is a complicated field; in part because PM requires numerous skills to handle a wide range of tasks. Every property has its own peculiarities, meaning that each property along with its tenants will pose their own unique challenges and difficulties to the PM professional. Difficulties depend on the firm’s size, property type, and level of staff experience. No matter the size of the challenge, management is tasked with allocating resources appropriately to ensure operations run seamlessly and smoothly.
Property management is an extremely customer-focused business; the more time you allocate in dealing with your tenants, your staff and your vendors in order to enhance their experience, the better. Oftentimes this tends to pose a challenge as your true concern remains keeping your bottom line. This is where technology can step in to help you, as it has proved to be a tremendous aid for Ontario Property Management Group (OPMG). OPMG’s cutting edge technology allows the organization to provide community, financial and property management services to co-operative and non-profit housing communities, Boards and residents.
OPMG helps your community run smoothly and efficiently through community-focused services built on integrity, experience and professionalism. OPMG never compromises its principles.

The firm is now the largest management provider of services in the social housing sector. OPMG has achieved so much in so little time, and it will continue to grow and be successful in the future.
