Mission Statement

Real Estate Development and Property Management Division

In their most fundamental role, real estate developers serve as an intermediary between the construction companies that build the buildings and the businesses or people that use them. Some of the best developers also have a construction division that can ensure cost effectiveness from the ground up. That is the Mid-West model.

Mid-West provides the optimum value in quality, style, functionality, location and cost. At Mid-West, we use our real estate and construction expertise to ensure that newly constructed spaces meet the tenant/client’s business or personal needs. The best real estate developers have strong experience in construction and play an extremely important role in controlling unnecessary expenses and improving efficiency and effectiveness for future owners and tenants. That is part of the Mid-West mandate.

Mid-West also manages its Nexus portfolio of commercial properties and others that Mid-West has built and sold to ensure that operations keep running smoothly by maintaining the facilities immaculately, allowing tenants to focus on driving their own profits. Mid-West has earned its reputation as the best commercial landlord in the business by being the indisputable leader in Saskatoon commercial property management, caring in our hands-on style for our tenants’ every need.

As with any pursuit, there are some developers that are simply more influential than others. The best of them are visionaries, looking years—even decades—beyond today’s world to determine what buildings will be needed, and where. They imagine a commercial building, an industrial park or shopping mall, mixed residential/commercial/retail development or even an entire commercial district in a currently undeveloped area by looking into the future and projecting what tomorrow’s businesses and consumers will need. Ask anyone what developer has had the most significant positive impact on a city, the one that goes beyond the ordinary, the one that builds for the long term betterment of the city; in Saskatoon Ken Achs and the Mid-West Group name will be at the top of the list. Mid-West is a real estate developer that is driven by vision while being pragmatic; not a pie in the sky promoter with no realistic follow through, nor a short term thinker focused on quick and easy rewards that in the end do not add value to the longevity of a community.

At their finest, real estate developers are entrepreneurs who seek out opportunity and drive it to reality; people with their own skin in the game and the courage of their convictions that stay in it until the job is done. In the process they grow our communities and our nation. Tomorrow’s manufacturers, distributors, retailers, professionals and employers will have a home because today’s real estate developers had the daring and vision to foresee their needs. In turn a top drawer commercial property manager it takes care of its business of maintaining properties in its care to the highest standards, so that tenants can focus on their own, allowing the breadth of business community to flourish while the community enjoys properties cared for with pride. These are the goals of Mid-West Development; the mainstay and focal point of the Mid-West Group. This is not just the mantra of CEO Ken Achs; it is his proven record of over 50 years.
