The Shore To Slope Team

Gary Kennedy

From 1988 to 1994, Gary was the Property Manager of Cranberry Village, a Resort that in 1988 contained 14 Condominium Corporations. I am a proud member of the CCI (Canadian Condominium Institute). Since that time there had been 9 additional Corporations registered, and my responsibilities included every aspect of property management from tendering the original engineering technical audit upon registering of the Condominium, to collection of common expense fees and dealing with the ongoing 3 P’s of Condominiums, People, Pets and Parking. I incorporated Shore to Slope in 1991 and had my first client contract in early 1993.
