Founded in 1987 by Ottawa real estate veterans Steve Ramphos and Lionel Shinder, District Realty is a full-service commercial and residential property management company and commercial real estate broker.
District Realty distinguishes itself from other Ottawa property management companies by operating from and adhering to a strong set of core values: quality service, accountability, integrity, dedication and professionalism.
In the beginning, District Realty concentrated solely on selling commercial real estate. However, the company’s clientele quickly grew and their demand for a broader level of service increased. In 1994, District Realty founded its property management services division by integrating Stephos Management and Rescom Management into the company.
By becoming a true full-service company, District Realty became involved in all aspects of the real estate industry – not only buying and selling property, but managing and maintaining it as well – allowing us to provide our clients with an ever greater depth of combined services and market expertise.
With a current portfolio of over 2,000,000 sq. ft. of commercial space across Ottawa, District Realty has more than quadrupled in size over the past decade – and we’re still growing. Thanks to the hard work and commitment shown by all of our employees, District is now considered to be the finest commercial real estate, apartment rental and property management company in Ottawa – proof that the core values of service excellence, integrity, dedication and professionalism can lead a company to the top of its industry.
As an active member of BOMA (Building Owners and Managers Association) District Realty is able to continuously enhance the level of its employees’ education and capabilities – meaning an even greater level of service is available to our clients. We are also proud members of the Eastern Ontario Landlord Organization and the Ottawa-Gatineau Hotel Association.
We also believe in giving back to the community. Since 1987, District Realty principals and employees have volunteered their time and helped raise thousands of dollars on behalf of numerous local charities and organizations.
