Once you have acquired that perfect investment property, now it's time to find the perfect tenant. Someone qualified, someone responsible, someone who will maintain the property with the same care and attention to detail as an owner would. Do tenants like this exist? They sure do, but they may not be the first to jump at a property or sitting in plain sight. We can tell you from years of experience in the Kitchener/Waterloo and Guelph rental markets that how your property is positioned and how your tenants are pre-qualified matters. With the right approach and plan, the odds of finding that elusive perfect tenant increase exponentially.

We’ve worked with and are here to assist property owners of all sizes. From mom-and-pop to commercial shop, we will treat your investment with the same level of care and attention to detail that we bring to all of our properties - for sale or lease. We will handle the marketing, promotion and negotiation so that you can enjoy a stress-free and profitable investment.

The lease market is the same as any other market. It requires countless hours of research and data crunching to keep a pulse on up-to-the-minute market trends. Inventory, demand and specific neighbourhood trends are all driving market forces across the Region. At TrilliumWest we study these figures and share that information throughout the company. You can rest assured that your TrilliumWest Realtor® is plugged into the micro leasing market and will assist in both attracting the right tenant and maximizing your monthly returns.

WHAT ABOUT Marketing?

While many companies may downscale their offerings for leased properties, at TrilliumWest we take the same care and approach to our lease properties as we do with each of our carefully curated resale properties. A potential paycheque should never dictate the level of service provided to a client. Lease listings at TrilliumWest receive the same professional photography and industry-leading internet advertising that you have come to expect from the Regional leader in property promotion.


Great paperwork makes for great tenants, that has always been a true statement, and your TrilliumWest Realtor® is loaded with supporting paperwork you need. Offers to lease, rental applications, credit checks and even pre-qualifying questions. We have it all covered.

In the spring of 2018, the government of Ontario introduced a standardized lease which restricts much of the wording and responsibilities set out in residential leases. While this was done to protect unsuspecting tenants from a less-than-on-the-level landlord, we also feel certain advantages were given to tenants and taken away from honest landlords. To assist, we have developed a customized schedule that can be included as an addendum to your lease and help better protect your interests.

WE GOT A Guy/Gal For That

Professional services and the relationship with your trusted Realtor® shouldn't end when the lease is signed or your property is occupied. As a company, we have an extensive network of true local professionals that can help with everything from home repairs to legal and tax advice. If you are not from the area, it can be a challenge to find trusted professionals to work with you on your properties and investment goals. Our network of vetted professionals is always standing by to help in any way.

TENANT Services

Over the years, tenants have largely been left to their own devices when it comes to finding and securing a suitable property to call home. We call that a missed step on behalf of organized real estate and we believe that home is home, regardless of who owns the title to the property. In recent years, a shortage of housing has caused the lease market across the Region to become very competitive. An increasing number of prospective tenants are enlisting the services of a professional Realtor® to guide them through a complex and fast-paced lease environment.

Your Trilliumwest Realtor® welcomes the opportunity to work with anyone searching for the right place to call home, for the right price.

YOU NEED A Package, People

The more prepared and organized you are in the eyes of a landlord, the higher your chances of securing a lease for their property - simple as that. A TrilliumWest Realtor® will work closely with you to develop your very own ‘Tenant Package’ which will contain all of the documents necessary for a landlord to quickly assess you as a qualified tenant for their property.

With heavy demand in the market, this is an essential step for any tenant to successfully secure their next home. While others struggle to complete the task, you are booking your moving van.


The lease market is no different than the resale market, it also requires countless hours of research, data compilation and analysis to keep an accurate pulse on local trends. Low inventory and high demand have reshaped the rental market over the past few years, but fortunately, your TrilliumWest Realtor® has their finger always on that pulse.

We pride ourselves on knowing the finer details of the market and always providing data-backed opinions on where things are going.

A CLIENT Is Always A Client

Outside of a select few major urban areas, organized real estate has too often turned up their collective noses to assisting tenants. You may have experienced this in the past when reaching out to a Realtor® and asking for some help in securing a lease. You may have been told to go check Kijiji or Craigslist yourself, but get back in touch if you are ever interested in actually purchasing. While we can’t erase your past experiences, we can work to change things going forward for you.

Your TrilliumWest Realtor® welcomes the opportunity to help clients secure that perfect lease and we offer all of the same service, communication and transparency that you have come to expect from a company that always puts our clients first - regardless of the size of the transaction. We would be happy to share our knowledge, experience and expertise to ensure the best possible outcome for you.

If that isn’t the best free service going, we aren’t sure what is?

STILL Paperwork Nerds

Your TrilliumWest Realtor® has extensive knowledge of the Landlord-Tenant Act and can provide advice and guidance on what is permitted and what is not. We even have tenant-friendly Schedules that can be inserted into the Ontario Standardized lease to better protect your interests,

Smart, huh?
