Operational Excellence
Property Management and Leasing – Office and Industrial

Morguard’s Property Management and Leasing team manages a diversified income producing property portfolio comprised of nearly 35 million SF of commercial space. A history of high tenant satisfaction combined with leasing expertise and sustainable operations results in strong operational performance. 

Tenant Satisfaction

Morguard understands the investment in tenants is as important as the investment in the asset to achieve high occupancy rates and high retention rates – which reduces the cost of leasing and the risk to vacancy on tenant turnover. Our ability to deliver responsive tenant-focused services has produced consistently high tenant satisfaction and high retention rates. This reduces the cost of leasing and improves the overall cash distribution.



Our tenant satisfaction program values engagement – from the executive level to the broader employee base – to foster collaboration. We engage directly with tenants to proactively address their changing business needs through the life of a commercial lease. Through tenant engagement in sustainable programs, we work together to reduce operating costs and the building’s carbon footprint.


Rapid response times are critical to tenant satisfaction. To facilitate responsiveness, we provide web-based tools to expedite the resolution of service requests. Every region cross-trains employees to provide a consistently high level of service. We also employ a standard of health and safety programs to manage the safety of our tenants and their visitors.


We continually measure the effectiveness of our property management programs to maintain high levels of tenant satisfaction. We do this through a joint review of fulfillment of operational plans and sustainability programs, and we undertake formal tenant studies to validate tenant satisfaction and engagement.

Leasing Expertise

At Morguard, commercial leasing is a bench strength and complements our property management capabilities to deliver consistent cash flow to owners. We manage more than 300 commercial properties in North America. We make it our business to put tenants first by delivering local property management services on a proven national scale.

Our leasing strategy attracts and retains high quality tenants resulting in a secure revenue stream. We are vigilant to realize the right tenant mix to help minimize exposure and to build community within every property. Our licensed leasing professionals work proactively on lease expansions, lease renewals, new tenant coordination, as well as lease administration to support high occupancy.


Strong local broker and agent relationships combined with direct relationships with local and national brands allows Morguard to reach a broad network of prospective tenants to match space and location requirements. Every prospect is supported with the latest market research to guide negotiations and to ensure an informed decision for a positive long-term tenant relationship.

Sustainable Operations – Sustainability

Our role is to continually improve operational performance to increase property value through the lifecycle of an asset. Our fully managed solution is designed to mitigate risk and manage costs to enhance Net Operating Income (NOI). Morguard brings a structured and disciplined approach to Property Management. Our platform embraces best practices in sustainability and risk management to meet owner and investor goals.

Leaders in Sustainability


Sustainability is a key business strategy at Morguard.

To support property sustainability, Morguard works collaboratively with property owners to define goals, identify capital projects, and establish operating budgets. The capital projects and operating budgets are right-sized for the property and include opportunities to improve operating performance through reductions in energy, greenhouse gas emissions, water, and waste.

Morguard manages to a national environmental program (GREEN LINK) that advances continuous “greening” of properties. We also maintain tenant and employee engagement by promoting green building programs, technologies, and design practices.

Morguard achieves BOMA and LEED Certifications in order to remain competitive in local real estate markets. These designations broaden and enhance the prospective tenant base as the certifications are a key driver for tenants seeking sustainable work places.
