Being a "Doorpreneur" with Tony LeBlanc
Tony LeBlanc is an entrepreneur who has started over 10 successful businesses. Growing up inside the property management industry watching his mother manage the building in which he was raised, he learned the business from the inside out.
He now manages one of the largest property management companies on Canada’s East Coast – a business he started from scratch.

Tony’s experience and expertise are now helping many other property management professionals take their business to a whole new level.

“There’s gotta be scale involved. I think somewhere is probably around the 300 to 500 unit door count. It starts to make sense because without getting that type of traction you gotta get an X enough experience under your belt on the management side. And the whole foundation of this is the management company. Your management experience has to be second to none for your owners and for your tenants. Get that right first. Once you have the confidence level that you can now start branching out into other opportunities then you can do so.” – Tony LeBlanc
“And the biggest beauty about this, the whole thing, why it’s easy for us to spin off these companies is because we have the infrastructure. You can only get that infrastructure once you’re a certain size. We have a full-time CA on staff. I’ve got all my maintenance guys, my cleaning staff, my property managers, my resident managers. I have a team. I can reuse them for the different things that I want to be.” – Tony LeBlanc
