Rachel McGladery*

Rachel McGladery has 17 years of experience in the greater Vancouver real estate markets. She has completed over 1,550 lease transactions and generated over 230 Million in income for her owners through the past 17 years. Recently, she returned to brokerage where she had first started her career in 1996 and to her roots in the Valley where she grew up. She is focused on commercial sales and leasing in the geographical area south of the Fraser River in the GVRD, which includes the cities of Surrey and Langley. Due to transportation and population growth she believes this area is Greater Vancouver's hottest commercial market.

Most recently, for 11 years, from 2001 until 2012 she was Director of Leasing for Wesgroup Properties (Wesgroup), one of Western Canada's largest private real estate and development companies. The majority of Wesgroup's portfolio was in Surrey and Langley, which allowed Rachel to become a market expert in the Valley and develop a strong book of clients.

At Wesgroup, Rachel managed a commercial portfolio of over 2.4 million square feet. She also secured build to suit pre-leasing of mixed-use and logistical sites to national companies such as FedEx, Pharmasave and Lordco. She leased over 200,000 square feet of office space to Tenants such as Vancouver Coastal Health, BC Bio Med, ICBC, Public Works, Royal Bank and ensured that the nine office buildings owned by Wesgroup average a less than 2% vacancy rate over a ten year period.

She is an expert in the Fraser Valley market and has a relentless positive attitude with an unfailing determination to get the job done. She is also actively involved in the Vancouver Real Estate community and is the Director of Sponsorship for Vancouver CREW.
