She brings a high level understanding of the commercial real estate market to our clients and helps them secure the right space for their business. Leslie has strong connections to Calgary's top commercial brokers, the landowners/developers, cost consultants and development management companies, lenders, the legal community, all of whom are well positioned to assist existing Calgary companies as they look to expand operations, or new companies looking to enter our market. If you are interested in acquiring land for development, or looking to do a joint venture development Leslie can also assist with these initiatives.
"Did you know that 95% of the businesses that are operating in Calgary are small to medium size businesses? Calgary is the perfect place for an entrepreneur to establish a small business, to meet with like minded individuals, to get support from our staff, which includes StartUp Calgary, and to grow their business with the help of our ecosystem developers, our Business Development Managers. We are an active population that enjoys working hard and the success that comes from "giving it your all". Potential investors should know that there are investment opportunities that tie into grassroot organizations as well as opportunities with the headquarter companies that chose to locate in our City. We have more head offices per capita than any other city in Canada!"
