Macdonald Realty was established in 1944 by John Macdonald and Al Steel as a boutique residential brokerage firm specializing in properties on Vancouver’s West Side. The company’s modern era began in 1990, under the leadership of Lynn Hsu and a new management team, who were dedicated to creating an integrated real estate organization.
The timing coincided with Vancouver’s emergence onto the international stage. In a few short years the city went from “undiscovered jewel” to “international hotspot”, perched strategically on the Pacific Rim and attracting visitors, celebrities, and investors from around the world.
During the nineties, Macdonald Realty expanded throughout British Columbia through a series of mergers, acquisitions, and strategic affiliations.
Building on our established strength and experience in residential sales, the company has expanded its business interests to include commercial sales and leasing, property management, strata management, development and project management, project marketing and mortgage brokering and lending. Through our network of offices, Macdonald Realty is committed to providing the best real estate services in British Columbia.
In 2015, Macdonald Realty opened an office in Shanghai at the junction of the Jing’an and Xu’hui district and launched a Chinese website macrealty.cn, which was the first and only Canada-focused real estate website behind the Great Firewall.
Macdonald Commercial provides creative real estate solutions for Commercial Sales and Leasing and Property Management to an international and entrepreneurial client base.
Over the years, we have sold and managed a diverse portfolio of properties. Our asset class mix includes apartments, land, retail, office, industrial, shopping centres and other investments.
With personal ties, both locally and throughout the Pacific Rim and Asia, as well as through our international Corfac affiliation, our group of highly experienced commercial realtors and property managers have access to a wide range of resources to help you maximize the potential of your investment.
Our company roots go back over 70 years when Macdonald Realtors first opened its doors. Today, Macdonald Commercial also draws upon the success of the entire Macdonald Real Estate Group, which has grown to nearly 1,000 realtors and staff in 20 offices across the province of British Columbia, Canada.
