ICI Properties is backed by the people you know and trust

Winnipeg’s ICI Properties has been working for over 30 years in commercial real estate, developing properties throughout the province and in many parts of Canada. The original founder John Pearson and subsequent partner Brennan Pearson have a long history in commercial real estate brokerage and development in Manitoba and have recently pivoted in their own direction. “We’ve been serving Western Canada and Ontario for decades,” says John Pearson. “Now, we’re proud to be exclusively promoting ICI Properties with the same knowledge and expertise you have come to expect from us.”

ICI Properties is a full-service commercial brokerage for tenants and landlords, offers owner and buyer representation, as well as development services from start to finish. “We have assembled a new team of professionals, all with extensive commercial real estate experience to ensure we provide the highest quality of service for our clients,” says Brennan Pearson.  Their boutique team is now up to seven and will be expanding further in 2023. 

One of the newest members, Jared Kushner has over five years of experience and the Pearsons have been working alongside him the entire time. “We have watched Jared learn the business and he is years beyond his experience,” says Brennan Pearson. “Jared’s high standards and genuine care for clients are great attributes which completely align with ICI Properties philosophies.”

Another member of the team is John Crockett who started his career in 2014 with a local developer and landlord focusing on suburban office and flex industrial space. He spent the next six years leading the leasing program for BentallGreenOak with a third-party downtown office portfolio working alongside institutional landlords. “I met John when he first entered the industry and after completing my first transaction with him, I knew we would need to work together,” says Brennan Pearson. Also joining the ICI Properties team is Kaleigh Bergen, with over 14 years of extensive commercial real estate marketing and social media experience—which provides her with a deep understanding of the industry and her area of expertise.  

ICI Properties team are skilled negotiators that achieve favourable lease terms and rents while finding the positioning in the market—backed by their experience and skilled market research. For landlords, expect ICI Properties to locate high-quality tenants and negotiate favorable market deal terms. 

“Whether the client is a tenant, landlord, purchaser or vendor, we assist our clients in more than just the transaction itself. We help determine their requirements, coordinate site selection, connect them with the right consultants, leverage market intelligence and analyze investment risks, all this with the intention of developing long-term relationships,” says Brennan Pearson.  It’s all a matter of how they look at things at ICI Properties. With their unmatched perspective, they navigate you through the complexities of the real estate industry and direct you to the best way to succeed.

ICI Properties collaborates with brokerages, realtors, and investors from across Canada. “Establishing alliances with other businesses across the country not only broadens our market reach and connections but also contributes to our industry expertise,” says John Pearson.

Perhaps the most important part of ICI Properties’ services is that they manage the client’s real estate, virtually acting as their in-house real estate department while they concentrate on maximizing their company outcomes. “We take care of the real estate details and convey in an organized presentation once the research is completed,” says John Pearson. “ICI works closely with business owners to fully understand their requirements to identify potential properties that would meet their needs, and handle everything to make it happen.”
