WINNIPEG, Oct. 31, 2018 /CNW/ - My Place Realty, a property management company based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, aims to be a positive, active force within the real estate and property management industries and within the community of Winnipeg. One of My Place Realty's core values is being forward thinking, which is why president, Kris Thorkelson, and Tom Haughton, vice president, have instituted progressive and welcoming pet policies for My Place Realty's properties.
"People love their pets," Kris Thorkelson said. "At My Place Realty, we're committed to making responsible pet owners feel like they're a valuable part of their building's community."
My Place Realty's pet policy allows for two pets (any combination of cats or dogs) or pets that live in a fish tank or bowl of up to five gallons.
Tom Haughton discussed some of the benefits of having pet owners as tenants in a residential building. "Making sure that your property is inclusive and accommodating for pet owners results in a more vibrant and active community, which in turn helps your tenants feel more at home and have a better experience."
Both Thorkelson and Haughton mentioned that their positive experiences with pet-owning tenants had influenced My Place Realty's pet policies. "Pet owners tend to be very responsible tenants overall," Thorkelson said. "They are conscientious and mindful. In addition, pet owners tend to be loyal tenants."
My Place Realty is dedicated to being a leader in the property management industry and to contributing to the community. Among its many affiliations, My Place Realty has also demonstrated its animal-friendly outlook by partnering with the Manitoba Chimney Swift Initiative, which monitors chimney swifts and works to restore the birds' habitats.
