Boutique Apartments

About Mainstreet

We specialize in investing in older mid-market rental properties, repositioning them to provide comfortable and well-managed rentals. We currently own and manage properties in Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver/Lower Mainland BC, Saskatoon, Regina, Kamloops, and Lethbridge.

Our counter-cyclical investment strategy and commitment to controlled growth is the foundation of Mainstreet. We purchase distressed properties and create value in assets many other companies overlook. Once acquired we improve the properties and provide them to tenants at affordable rates. We are "boutique apartments".

About Mainstreet

Mainstreet Equity

Who We Are

Mainstreet Equity is a Canadian real estate company focused on acquiring and managing mid-market rental apartment buildings primarily in Western Canada. Founded in 1997, Mainstreet creates value by purchasing under-performing properties, renovating them to a branded standard, improving operating efficiencies and repositioning them in the market for greater returns.

Our History

Mainstreet Equity started in 1997 by founder and CEO Bob Dhillon. From the beginning, Mainstreet has grown its portfolio by focusing on a niche within the real estate industry. As an organization, we primarily purchase mid-market multi-family apartment buildings that tend to be under 100 units. Acquiring the low-rise apartments in clustered areas improves operational efficiencies and minimizes the costs. The business strategy has remained consistent over the years; adding value to neglected properties by providing suite renovations and property improvements. Our suites are geared toward middle-class Canadians, improving the quality and standard of mid-market apartments.
