Coutts & Associates Inc. was founded by Peter Coutts in 2001, who recognized a need for more personalized service in the property management industry. As Peter puts it, "big is not necessarily better!" Peter is proud to provide clients with a team that works hand-in-hand to ensure communication and solution-based management remain top priority.
Coutts & Associates Inc., works alongside independently owned and operated JET Contracting Inc., for seamless maintenance of its properties. JET allows us to ensure costs and availability of service are better controlled. We've found this integrated strategy has proven to be a win-win for management, tenants, and owners/boards.
Peter's more than 40 years experience in real estate and property management lends greatly to the portfolio behind Coutts & Associates Inc. Peter maintains his internationally recognized designation of CSM (Certified Shopping Centre Manager), in addition to his Alberta Real Estate License and numerous other certificates. His passion is developing management strategies for maximizing property value.
Edward (Ted) Coutts is our Senior Licensed Property Manager. In addition to managing several properties, Edward's role includes preparing annual budgets, collection of fees, and preparing properties for sale. Edward also independently owns JET Contracting Inc., which oversees most of our property maintenance. In Peter's absence, Edward is in charge of day-to-day operations.
