With the culmination of 10 years in the construction and appraising industry, Strategy Reserve Fund Planning Inc. was incorporated in 2020 as an independent reserve fund study provider/consulting firm. Vocational education in commercial and residential construction, in addition to academic education of finances and cost-estimation, has contributed to a resourceful skill-set and technical ‘know-how’ of property renovation and budgeting. Furthermore, Strategy Reserve Fund Planning Inc. is committed to providing a useful and practical reserve fund study report that takes into consideration the demands and obligations condominium corporations face today.
Kent began his work in the reserve fund planning field back in 2016, working for several years as a candidate appraiser (member of the Appraisal Institute of Canada), specializing in reserve fund studies and residential appraisals. Since 2016, while attending the University of British Columbia, he completed the Diploma in Urban Land Economics (appraisal specialization), the Certificate in Real Property Assessment, and the Certificate in Reserve Fund Planning (RFPP). In 2020, Kent obtained the Certified Reserve Fund Planner Designation (CRP) from the Real Estate Institute of Canada, in which he has been a member of the institute since 2018. He also holds a Bachelor of General Studies degree in Arts & Sciences.
Prior to 2016, Kent worked in the commercial and residential construction industry for many years as a Red Seal Journeyman Plumber and Gas Fitter. During his time in construction, he had the privilege to work on many exciting projects that included the new Royal Alberta Museum and the University of Alberta’s Innovation Centre for Engineering. Along with training and education he has completed in property inspection, Kent believes his hands-on experience and skills as a journeyman provide a strong understanding of construction and are invaluable assets relied upon when evaluating the condition and lifecycle of building components. Lastly, prior to his work in construction, Kent worked as a tree arborist for 7 years and was a designated Certified Arborist with the International Society of Arborists.
