Mr. Bob Dhillon

Founder, President and CEO

Bob is Mainstreet's founder, a leading Canadian real estate owner and asset manager with more than two decades of experience in acquiring and repositioning all types of properties. Bob made his real estate start while still a teenager, buying a pair of houses in Calgary, renovating them and selling them for a tidy profit. He was hooked, and soon moved into larger residential buildings, where he discovered a talent for finding under-valued property and repositioning it. As he built a private property portfolio from the ground up, he honed and perfected a model of acquiring under-priced properties and renewing them to a much higher and more valuable standard. It’s a background that strongly shapes how Bob runs Mainstreet and the vision he has for property ownership and management. Every transaction in Bob's career has been financed with his own equity and personal guarantees. With an unwavering dedication to creating and capturing new value from each property, he has maintained a portfolio that is constantly in tune with market conditions. This has allowed for profitable real estate ownership at all phases of the property cycle. Bob has owned and managed, on a collective basis, over 10,000 multi-family units since creating Mainstreet, which he took public in 1998. His guidance has led Mainstreet into a position of market prominence. Mainstreet was a Top 10 Gainer among all TSX-listed companies in 2011, and was number one among all Canadian REITs and real estate corporations in shareholder returns over the past decade. Bob holds an MBA from the Richard Ivey School of Business at the University of Western Ontario. He is Honorary Consul General for Belize in Canada. Bob currently sits on the Board of Directors of The Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC).
