“You may not have heard of the South Korean pop group Twice, but the nine-member K-Pop superstars have put Canada, and specifically Vancouver, on the world map with their new hit video ….

“In the video, the young women appear in locations around Vancouver, singing and dancing at several spots in historic (and ultra-hip) Gastown, along the Stanley Park seawall, in a famous downtown alley, at a favourite deli and more — as well as in the fishing village of Steveston, on the White Rock pier, and while taking a ride on the SkyTrain.”

The Leaders In Land Assembly

Sun Commercial Real Estate Ltd.

The main focus of Sun Commercial Real Estate is property investment and land assembly management. We have a unique and competitive edge in the market, and have crafted an investment modality that sets us apart from the crowd. Our comprehensive process makes the best use of commercial real estate resources, and with our business partners, our team, our corporate culture and the SUNCOM brand influence, we have shaped our tried-and-tested system to maximize returns. We have become leaders in Vancouver real estate assembly investments.

At SUNCOM we are experts in the commercial real estate process, giving us a unique advantage when it comes to FSR (floor space ratio). Over the years we have helped our clients achieve impressive returns on their investments, ranging from 16% to 150%. When the economic crisis hit in 2009 and one of our projects didn’t grow in value as much as we hoped, we were still able to garner a 16% return on investment for our clients. Our company has a large amount of investment capital, and we always invest in every project we put together. With our experience and leadership, we guide our clients to come together and secure large investments. With a relatively small amount of capital, our clients participate in and gain access to the profits of some of the largest investment projects in Vancouver.

As a professional commercial real estate investment company in Vancouver, we have had a stellar track record. In 2014 we completed 9 projects, with the sale amount of CAD $209 million. We aim to purchase CAD $418 million worth of projects this years. We are both confident and capable that we can deliver the right investment opportunities and generate the most profit possible for our clients in 2015.
