About Us

MN Properties inc.

“You can have anything you want in life so long as you are willing to help others achieve what they want.”


We are an Alberta based team of real estate professionals who are lucky enough to be located in one of the strongest economies in the world.

With Alberta being home to the world’s most politically stable source of energy, this province is benefiting from foreign investment in the hundreds of billions of dollars. This in turn is creating more sustainable jobs than any other province in the country.  Continued and sustainable job growth is the most important economic fundamental in real estate investing as more jobs require more people, therefore creating a demand for housing and an upward pressure on real estate values.

We have made our personal wealth in Alberta real estate and we strongly believe that home ownership is the fundamental building block of financial freedom.  It is this belief that drove us to create the Armchair Landlord program where we are able to match qualified Tenant-Buyers with Armchair Landlords to create win-win solutions for all parties involved.
