Finding an Apartment to Rent Can Be Stressful!

Have you ever wondered why looking for a place to live is so stressful? It's because a lot of companies don't employ trained professionals who know how to help you find the right fit. Plus, once you move in, the lack of streamlined processes to ensure maintenance and renovations happen when promised or when needed means service levels fall short. That's stressful and we get it. We hire experienced Building Managers and Maintenance Teams to help you live better!

I would like to note that the key component to my satisfaction with The Carlton is Paul Tarko. Paul is an excellent building manager, fair, efficient & always concerned about the needs of the tenants. These qualities are hard to find in a building manager!  - Edmonton

I thought that Hartley Manor was a very lovely place to live and I would definitely recommend it to people looking for an apartment.  Very friendly management.  I lived in the building for 2 years and had no complaints.
~S.R.
We moved out because my husband finished his education and we are going back to Japan.  We really appreciate that building manager Dorothy and maintenance guy Paul helped us kindly.  When we have a chance to come back to Canada, we'd like to rent your apartment again.

Dave was an excellent building manager - hard working, always friendly and made time for the residents.  Building was old but well maintained.  Never any garbage in halls, grounds were nicely maintained.  Overall one of the better kept apartments I've rented.
~W.F.

~T.H.
The managers are AMAZING, so friendly, helpful and happy :) It's such a pleasure living here :) They really make you feel like you're at home :).
~J.D.
I am enjoying living here.  Val was awesome from the time I met her up to and including moving in.  Thank you.
~S.D.
Valerie is the best landlord a renter could ask for.  She made my move into the suite smoothly and effortlessly.  Every time I had a question, she would answer right away.  She has been very accommodating and helpful during my move in and move out.  The building is well taken car...
~R.Z.
The management team at Wellesley Manor are great!  Thank you.
~C&K.T.
Lived here for 9.5 years.  Current manager (Shawn) is by far the best manager I had while with Kelson.  Give that man a raise and hearty pat on the back!
~C.L.
Cheryl was fantastic, as were the Kelson Group managers prior.  The building location is ideal and a primary factor behind my lengthy tenancy.  Assuming competitive rent and premises I would rent with Kelson Group again, based on my experience with the Glen Shee building managers.
~M.C.
I was completely satisfied with the apartment and the manager.  Would move back in a second.  Very happy there
~P.O.
I moved as I am 89 years of age and had to go into assisted living!  Truly enjoyed my 10 years in your building.  Staff were always most kind & helpful.  Was so sorry I had to leave my little apartment!
~E.D.
Rob my building manager, has been great at making sure everything was fixed and working, as well as being around when I needed it.  He is definitely one of the better managers that we have had.
~Z.C.
I think Suzanne and Mike are the best property managers.  I have the highest regards for them both.  They are two hard working employees and I cannot say enough good about them.  Kelson Group is lucky to have them
~P.M.
Found Lee Heinrichs very kind and courteous to us.  Great employee.  Thank you very much.

Cheryl does an incredible job!!  I rented with two others as managers and she by herself out did them.  Promptness, professionalism, personable and approachable.  She maintained the yards and interior at a much higher level than I've ever seen and not just at Forest Glen.  It was...
~J.M.
I can't think of any way to improve on our experience with Kelson Group.  We really appreciated the welcome basket at the time of move in.  The building was maintained very well.  Parking lots were cleaned on time.  Bob kept the building quiet, there was never a time we had to pu...
~T. & L. S.
Thank you Kelson Group for an apartment building that is being run in a very professional manner.  The manager, Rob, is approachable and very professional in every way.  I believe he is the best in his field that I have met.  We all know that dealing with the general public is never e...
~B.K.
I had no problem with your building and was very pleased with the staff here.

~X.L.
So far everything with us here is great.  The office staff (management) are kind, friendly, professional and happy.  We look forward to chatting with Val when we can as she is a good person with a good sense of humour.  Thank goodness there are landlords that actually appreciate the t...

The apartment was quite clean and the appliances were in good running order. Overall the entire process was easy and Gord and his staff were professional, helpful and friendly.
~E. L.
It's great to have on-site maintenance and operations managers on the premises.  They obviously take great pride in their jobs, keeping the building clean, the exterior pleasing to the eye and the needs of the tenants attended to.  I would recommend Emerald Manor to anyone seeking a new re...
~J. I.
Val at Heatheridge was a wonderful manager, I would recommend the apartment just based on my experience with her.  The apartment was beautiful and overall I was very happy with the time I spent there.
~D. D.
We had a very pleasant overall experience at the Buckland Manor and even consider moving back in there one day.  Manon is the best building manager I've ever known, a very easy-going, yet organized and caring person.  She needs a raise! :)
~A.S.
Everything went very well.  That was very nice.  I was very happy with my experience so far.
~S.V.
Your welcome package was so sweet.  How lovely to get here and have all the essentials in a cute little gift bag.  And a free pizza!  Thank you for making me feel at home.  So wonderful.  Suzanne, Suzanne and Mike are all top notch.  You have wonderful people working fo...
~J.S.
Had to move due to health reasons however if you ever get an assisted living facility I'll be the first there.  Val/Ken and David were excellent managers and I hope the best for them.  Overall I really loved living there and wish I could move back.  I would highly recommend it to anyo...
~K.B.
Kathleen Lewis was the manager when we were evacuated from Fort Mac.  She was so helpful in getting us located.  She was kind and considerate.  If not for her, I doubt that we would ever have chosen to rent the apartment.  Overall, good service from Kelson Group for accommodating...
~J.B.
I had a great experience at Carriage House Apartments.  I moved for work reasons into a different town.  Cheryl, manager of Carriage House, is the best manager I have come across, hands-down :).
~M.D.
I felt at home at the ( Viscount ) Villa so I will miss being there.  Shawn (manager) was always very nice person to deal with.
~J.Y.
We enjoyed our stay at the Curlew Apartments.  The only reason we moved was to be closer to the university.  Rob was an excellent landlord, easy to get along with, and he made sure any concerns we had were taken care of as soon as possible.  We are sad to be leaving such an awesome la...
~T & K. M
I would say I was happy with overall running of the building and management.  I feel that if all your tenants were treated as I was, I would recommend Kelson Group as a good rental company to anyone who asked me.  Say hi to Carl for me, he is tops in my books.
~J.J.
My husband I loved living at Providence, and if he hadn't passed we would have stayed much longer.  Liz was always so kind to us, as well.  Thank you.
~D.G.
I cannot say enough about how helpful, courteous, and sympathetic, Adam (the apartment manager) was while we were cleaning at the apartment.  He was very helpful in every way and always returned phone calls etc. when needed.  Thank you so very much.
~J.W.
Everything was pretty good overall - I do want to mention that Carl (and Rob!) at Riverside Gardens was definitely a great Landlord.  They were very personable and are very easy going guys that cared very much about the building - Carl addressed any concerns (not that I have much at all) that I...
~R.M.
Location was an excellent spot for us!  It was with great pleasure also to have had Adam Curtis as our manager.  Not ever having to live in an apartment before, he made our stay a pleasure.  Thank you!
~R&K.S.
David is such a good landlord, any problems or concerns we had were addressed promptly and appropriately, he was very professional.  The grounds were kept tidy as well as the halls.  
~B.B.
I loved this apartment so much.  The layout of it made so much sense compared to some other flats I have rented.  I loved being able to be so close to work I could walk.  If I had a concern, Samantha or Stephanie were always so responsive.  Thank you for giving me the opportunity...
~S.S.
The condition of the suite when I arrived, along with the welcome package was excellent.  I will say that Rhonda was a treat to deal with right from the start.  My experience so far has been good and I would recommend Kelson Group to anyone looking to move here.
~J.G.
Manon Goller is an excellent manager on your team in my opinion.  Although there was a little mix-up in receiving my security deposit, I have a positive impression of Kelson in Kelowna.  I had a good year but missed the big metropolis so I moved to Calgary.
~R.M.
Your lucky to have such energetic, reliable people to manage your building.  You need to pay them well or someone will steal them away from you.  They're the best.
~M.S.
Cheryl is the most meticulous building manager I've seen to go over the move in inspection in detail.  It was really nice to see her pick up on the couple of flaws and not overlook them.  
~K.S.
Thank you Kelson Group.  Rob, the manager takes care of everything as quickly as he possibly can.  As a resident I could not ask for more.  Rob is the best.  Thank you.
~B.K.
I rented a 1 bedroom apartment for more than 1 year, building place is very vital and allows access to all city. Building is so safe, managing team is so friendly, collaborative, professional and nice.  Maintenance work is prompt and professional.  Place is nice, lovely and comfortable. &n...

We gave our notice for the sole reason we found a house for our family to live in.  We did appreciate our landlords, they were great.  All the tenants were friendly and kind.
~S.& D. W.
Bought a condo.  Manon Goller was great!!
~C.H.
The building is always clean and the building manager - SHE'S GREAT…. Any questions, any concerns… she's always ready to help. I will miss the Christmas time in that building… it was so nice and friendly feeling.  I want to thank Robbie and Steven for a wonderful year.
~D.&R. J
Kelson Group is very lucky to have Rhonda as employee, she can take charge of any issues.
~A.D.

Suite was well maintained and clean, the patio was the best part.  As I walked in I knew it was a place we could make a home.  Thank you Kelson Group!!
~D.B.
Jen, Marg, & Ron are awesome about there business. Always smiling and willing to help.
~F. & J. B.
When we rent we rent for long periods like 7-10 years at one location. The professionalism of your staff is beyond excellent, they are very accommodating and understanding.  It helps to know that we can also talk to them on a personal level as well and that says a lot about your management.&nbs...
~D.W.
We have been through a few owners and management. And I would have to say Kelson Group is by far the best on seeing that everything gets done from maintenance issues to problem tenants in a very professional manner. It is very comforting to know that Kelson Group really cares about our safety. ...
~C. H.
Enjoy living in the complex, can't say how much I appreciate the management staff. Those two ladies are willing to work with me during my financial struggles, being laid off and waiting on my EI. I've never dealt with a rental company that has been so understanding. I definitely would recomm...

~B.B.

I love living here. Been here for years, would have moved if I didn't truly love this place. Robbie and Steve are great managers. Friendly, efficient and darn nice to boot. Love them.    
~S.C.
I find the management and staff are friendly and attentive to any concerns. I have lived here for 5 years and to me, that says how good the building, staff and management are. I would not be here if there were issues.
~B.P.
Debra Evans the current manager is doing an excellent job as did Bill and Julia before her.  They have all been very approachable and accommodating. The grounds are always well looked after as are the apartments.  Terry was in one of the newly remodeled suites which we found very nice. We ...

We only moved because we bought a house, otherwise we were satisfied.  We never had any noise problems or complaints about the suite and Stephanie and Samantha were great.  
~M.W.
Honestly Valleyview Manor is great and Rob is an amazing manager, was just time for us to buy a place.  Couldn't have been happier with Rob, always helpful and super nice. Thanks for a great 3 years! Was happy to live at Valleyview Manor!  
~J.S.
The Carlton was well kept and the tenants that I did talk to were happy to be there.  One thing was because Paul Tarko is managing it, couldn't ask for a better person. Always quick to fix something that didn't work properly.  A fine man to have him run your building. High five to Paul. Yo...

Loved living here, great location, very nice and helpful building manager.  I would definitely want to live here again if I move back to Kelowna.
~C.W.
Emerald Manor is an excellent rental apartment thanks to the professionalism, values and diligence of the managers, Dorothy and Paul.  They take pride in the appearance and safety of the buildings and grounds. My mother's home was comfortable and safe. This is due to Dorothy and Paul - not an e...

Stephanie is a great building manager and personally I don't feel she gets enough credit for her job and the duties that she must perform on a daily basis.  I also wanted to write and express my personal option in writing to inform you how well she does. Also to be able to show my respect and a...

Cheryl was absolutely phenomenal with helping me as a first timer renter to understand the processes involved and making me feel very welcome and comfortable in my new apartment.  10/10!
~H.C.

We have been renting for 9 years and Emerald Manor is by far the best place we have been blessed with. Everything from the safety of our children to exceptionally clean buildings! Paying rent is easy with TenantPay option.  Outside maintenance is spectacular. We as a family don't feel there is ...
~K. & G. A
The manager Rob, was the best manager ever.  He really does care about the residents and does everything he can to be of help at all times.  He is the best. Kelson Group, thank you for being the best owner of rental units I have met. Do keep up the good work you do.  
~B. K.
My landlord at 1336 Columbia was awesome.  Very professional and always answered emails promptly.  
~J. H.
Enjoyed friendliness of managers and location of building.
~S. H.
  Callingwood Apartments by far is one of the best apartments I have lived in and the reason is the management - Jennifer & Marge.  They manage the property like owners would and not like employees. Please use this as a testimonial anywhere you want to.  
~S.& S. S.
Dear Shawn and everyone who got called out Wednesday night: Thanks so much to you all for responding so quickly when the back entrance flooded.

The ladies in the office are great.  Thank them for me, they helped make it feel like a home not just a rental.  I truly can't say enough great things about the ladies in the office. And even Ronnie, the maintenance man.  The ladies were always helpful, respectful and smiling. Ronnie ...
