Strand Development - Vancouver, BC


Strand is seeking an individual who is passionate about real estate, has a strong drive to be a part of a growing organization and wants to be part of creating a lasting legacy in urban environments across North America.


Founded in Vancouver in 1976, Strand has been actively involved in a number of real estate sectors, including: the development and acquisition of multi-family garden style and high-rise apartments and condominium projects; single family land and housing developments; the development of multi-unit warehouse projects; and the acquisition of office building properties; and, the provision of mortgage financing to developers for residential and commercial developments throughout North America. While Strand has maintained a relatively low profile, consistent with the philosophy of its major shareholders and financial partners, Strand has developed an established reputation for successfully and conscientiously developing real estate. Strand is active throughout several regions in North America and has its head office in Vancouver, with regional offices in the southeastern and western United States. Strand’s active projects are comprised of over six thousand residential units in seven states and in Metro Vancouver comprising 600 condominiums and 800 rental apartments. The Metro Vancouver division, started by Mike Mackay, has established itself as a recognized and respected developer in the region by demonstrating innovation, consistency and a commitment to building for the needs of the region’s diverse demographic composition.


Strand’s development business is innovative, dynamic, and expanding. This is an opportunity for the successful candidate to join a team of up and coming professionals that, in a short period, have built a portfolio of business across a wide range of real estate sectors. Strand is a progressive real estate group that rewards loyalty, collaboration and ingenuity and provides opportunities for its employees to grow with the company, both professionally and financially. Similar to its financing business, Strand is exploring opportunities to expand its development activities to include projects across both Canada and the United States.
