We are a family business so we naturally bring family, ethics and integrity to everything we do. Respect for our clients and partners… hands-on attention and service for our tenants… outstanding returns for our investors. These are our standards for Building Value and strong long-term relationships.

Claudio Bertone
Co-Founder

Our passion is to build value. We are successful because we listen to our long-standing clients and work very closely with them to identify opportunities in the market and to better serve their changing needs. When we find the right spots, we are proactive and always move quickly to acquire them.

Born and raised in Montréal, Québec, Claudio studied at Vanier College before obtaining an academic scholarship from Lehigh University in Pennsylvania, USA, where he received a Bachelor’s degree in Finance in 1994. Throughout his studies, he played football and was the Toronto Argonauts’ first pick in the 1994 CFL draft. He played professional football with the Argonauts for one season.

The Bertone brothers have brought the same team-oriented, win-win, hands-on, and can-do attitude developed on the football field to their real estate business. With over 32 years of real estate investment and development experience between them, the Bertone brothers have successfully developed 19 projects across various asset classes, encompassing more than 1,170,000 square feet of building space. They are currently developing 5 projects (on more than 1,263,000 square feet of land) and are actively seeking additional opportunities to add to the development pipeline.
