"Families turn to us to experience the dream of home ownership, and we pride ourselves on providing architectural innovation, tremendous quality and superior customer service."Â
– Daljit Thind, founder and CEO of Thind Properties Ltd.
Since 1997, Thind Properties Ltd. has established a hallmark for building quality and creating value for homebuyers in the Greater Vancouver area.
Launched by Indo-Canadian entrepreneur Daljit Thind, Thind Properties has since put its distinctive stamp on a wide range of single-family, townhouse and condominium projects in the Lower Mainland and continues to build its brand by blending quality developments with affordable prices and environmentally friendly practices.
A true study in self-made success, Daljit Thind first emigrated from India in 1993 and quickly found his niche in Canada, completing his first single-family home in Vancouver four years later.
"Families turn to us to experience the dream of home ownership,"Â says Thind, CEO and founder of Thind Properties Ltd., "and we pride ourselves on providing architectural innovation, tremendous quality and superior customer service."Â
While his company has grown by leaps and bounds, Thind remains as hands-on as the day he oversaw his first project, shepherding each aspect of his signature developments from the foundations to the rooftops.
He credits honesty and an unshakable work ethic as the keys to his success.
"We operate with the understanding that each and every home we build will eventually become our customer’s castle,"Â says Thind. "We began this company with a vision of building quality homes and creating value for our customers. It’s a motto that we stand to this day."Â
Billed as a "Landmark Thind Signature Gold Development"Â, Skyway Tower on Kingsway in Vancouver is Daljit Thind’s current premier project.
A landmark development located in the heart of Vancouver’s new Norquay Community, Skyway Tower is a 12-storey high-rise and four-storey mid-rise project that combines quality, form, function and affordability in spacious one to three-bedroom penthouse units that boast high-end laminate flooring, durable ceramic tiles, textured carpeting, designer lighting and fixtures and stainless-steel appliances. The project, slated for completion in September of 2014, is already 70 per cent sold out.
But Skyway Tower is not the only marquee development in Thind Properties’ portfolio at present.
Thind is also promoting View 388 "â€ a 53-unit, luxury condo project currently under construction on Kootenay St. in East Vancouver "â€ as well as the Metro One and Two condominium buildings on Grimmer St. in Burnaby and the 46 two- and three-bedroom townhouses available in the Casa D’oro project on Gilley Ave., conveniently located near Metrotown Centre in Central Burnaby.
In previous years, Thind built his brand "â€Ã‚ and reputation "â€ by developing such projects as The Scena at 2239 Kingsway and The View at 2150 Hastings Street, and has a half-dozen projects currently slated to break ground in 2014.
"My dream is to continue to take my company to the next level,"Â says Thind, who is excited by the opportunities available for homebuyers in the Vancouver and Burnaby real-estate market. "It’s an exciting time to be a real-estate developer in Vancouver. It’s the best place to be working right now."Â
Thind also places a premium on being a good community citizen both here in his adopted homeland as well as in his native India.
In addition to sponsoring local children’s clubs and homeless-outreach programs in Vancouver’s downtown East Side, Daljit is the vice-chair of an all-girls school he helped to build in Punjab State in Northern India and is actively working to help export the B.C. school curriculum to the institution.
