O'Shanter aspires to the highest professional standards, and it is the first (and only) multi-residential property management company in Canada (and possibly North America) to achieve both ISO 9001 Quality Management and ISO 14001 Environmental Management certifications. Many owner-operators are hesitant to engage a third-party property manager, as they feel that their buildings will not receive the same level of attention as the manager's own buildings," said Jonathan Krehm, President, O'Shanter Development Company. "Our goal is to provide consistent service for all the buildings in our portfolio. We run every building as if it were our own, producing monthly reports for third-party buildings before we do our own properties."
