About Our Company
Savard Properties, Inc. is the largest privately owned landlord of suited single family homes in Calgary with a portfolio of over 50+ suited single family houses. It is a family-run real estate investment company that manages its own properties without the burden of having to report profits to third party investors. So, we can manage with a heart and have the latitude to "do the right thing" whether or not repairs are too expensive to make a return on investment. We are landlords with 15 years of real estate experience, and play everything by the book. All our suites are legal, registered and inspected by the City and safe. Savard Properties is focused on providing homes our tenants are proud of at good value so that our tenants can focus on achieving their personal goals.
Due to concerns over the transmission of the Covid 19 virus, we are limiting the amount of personal social interaction as much as possible, for the safety of our employees, our tenants and potential tenants. In this light, each of our listings have a layout of the suite aside from pictures. The layout has furniture drawn to scale, to give an idea of the space. When possible, we provide 3D tours of the units as well. The objective of this is to provide enough information to determine enough interest to fill out an application. If you are interested, please fill out an application on this website. Go to the tenant application tab. We will process your application immediately upon receiving it and, if approved, contact you to arrange a viewing of the property. Thus, once approved, you will still be given the chance to physically verify the information in the pictures, ads and layout as accurate before making a final decision. You can also contact Amy at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at 403-612-8028 if you have any further questions or need more details related to the suite. These are unprecedented times and the safety of our tenants, our staff and our fellow citizens are our first priority. Limiting social contact is the first step in doing our best to 'flatten the curve'. Thank you for your understanding.
Letter from from the Owner/Founder
The most fun part of our business is seeing the potential in places where others don't and making something beautiful from it. We like to build, make better communities and transform the runt of the litter to the strongest asset in the street. That's our passion. We don't stop at "good enough". We push the limits of what I would call "design-eering", finding the perfect balance between beauty, durability, practicality, efficiency, value and just being smart about design choices. The end goal is to "inspire aspiration". We know how difficult work and life can be. At the end of a tiring day, we don't want you coming home to a place that's a dump and make you feel "stuck", because that is all that you can afford. We believe that with our humble efforts, we can make a difference in the lives of our tenants. By providing our tenants with a place they can be proud to call their home, at a reasonable rent, we believe our tenants can come home after a hard day's work and actually relax... actually find solace. And with simple luxuries, without spending for it, get the extra oomph in a home that makes you think, "Yes, I can!"
What Makes Us Different
We take pride in our units and feel pride when our tenants feel important. In our company, our tenants are our guests.
Let's face it, the biggest complaint of other landlords is that repairs go unfixed. The difference between Savard Properties and other smaller mom and pop landlords, is that we have the economies of scale to operate the business at a high professional standard. Based on satisfaction surveys of our own tenants, the fact that we fix repairs when needed and we do it in a timely fashion is the the best advantage of being a tenant of Savard Properties. If something does breaks down, big or small, if it impedes the functionality of the suite, we simply fix it. We have a team of in house handymen and suppliers who we trust through the years who will prioritize us to meet your needs. We take the time to listen to you, have the means to act upon it and we make every effort to make your stay with us an enjoyable experience.
- Feel safe
We go the extra leg to make you feel safe. We play by the book with respect to tenancy legislation and have personal information protection policies in place. We have never lost a litigation case in RTDRS because we have never done anything outside legal boundaries. And we have always been reasonable when dealing with conflict. All our units meet building codes and health/safety standards. All our units are available for viewing, so you know exactly what you get. All our basement suites are legal basement suites, registered and inspected by the City of Calgary. We protect our company from fraudulent scams by having an online application form, so that you know your information is secure, and that you are corresponding with the right contacts to make a legit transaction. (If you are told otherwise, please inform us right away as they are not from Savard Properties, Inc.) We are also accredited by the Better Business Bureau.
- Feels like home...
Unlike other larger landlords, we are not strictly driven by profit nor run by property management companies who have to no long-term stake at the deal nor do we have to report to faceless, hands-off investors who dont know you personally and dont care. In Savard Properties, we care. We have the personal touch of a family business. We take the time to know you. We invest in our tenants as a relationship, not a transaction. We want you to be long term tenants with us. Success for us is a long term tenant, and we have tenants who have been with us for more than a decade (our longest tenant has been with us for 14+ years and counting). We have never sold a property, so you can stay with us for as long as you are happy with us. We are in it for the long haul. We know home is a feeling of being surrounded by family. We aim to make you feel at home in our homes.
But most of all, in Savard Properties, we believe, that our tenants come first. Your satisfaction is the reason we are in business.
