PCD Rentals welcomes you!

A few years ago, we noticed a serious shortage of housing in the Ottawa area and had an opportunity to invest in a different way – redesign existing housing to accommodate more people.

Our Business Model

We are applying the City of Ottawa infill strategy to convert single family homes into multi-unit homes, providing more luxury rental opportunities for niche groups – Serious students & young professionals.

We select homes located in good neighbourhoods that are close to public transit, Carleton University, Algonquin College, and all amenities.

Our designs include high end modern finishes.  All major appliances are included and all common spaces and bedrooms are furnished.

Our units are all inclusive.

As owners, your landlords take pride in each unit and are dedicated to ensuring you are comfortable and everything is up and running smoothly.  We are here to help.

  • All renovations are permitted and inspected

  • Quiet and safe residential neighbourhoods

  • Linked smoke/carbon monoxide detectors in all units

  • Fire extinguishers in all units

  • Close to bus routes, colleges & universities, and all amenities

After completing 2 years of Business and Marketing I found that my interests definitely were elsewhere.  I changed direction completely and graduated 2nd in my class with a Construction Engineering Technician Diploma and a Civil Engineering Technologist Diploma – both with honours. I then followed my love of construction into major renovation projects.  This lead me naturally to developing investment properties and the rental market.  My few years in a business program has paid off too, so that wasn’t wasted.

Hands on construction, renovation and repairs is what I love.  Now that I am involved in property development and management, I feel lucky that I am pursuing something that I love with family.

After 37 years in various management positions in banking, I retired and soon after started my second career with my son Philip.  My background in banking, mortgage lending, accounting, legal documentation and working with real estate agents and lawyers is a definite asset in Investment Property Development and Rental Property Management.

Throughout my career one of the most rewarding things was helping people buy their first home.  I am still doing this by providing beautiful and comfortable accommodation for young professionals and students while they are working hard to start their lives

I am an investment property owner in the Ottawa area, and have been helping manage and grow the family business.  I started working at the age of 16, and was able to gain valuable experience in a pharmacy setting as well as a hearing aid setting. These very different positions have helped me develop strong organizational skills, excellence in customer service, and a strong work ethic.  I use these skills every day in the business.

As a former Carleton University student and young working professional, I know how vital these early years are and how much stress is involved.  My goal with PCD Rentals is to try to make your transition as easy as possible by starting you out with a healthy and stable environment.

I rented a basement apartment for 2 ½ years in your first house! It was a great place. You are great
landlords and I appreciated that you were always there to help.

Great landlords who are responsive to tenant concerns and all around great people – even to hang around with. Property looks awesome and is comfortable with nice kitchen and appliances.

I can definitely say that Phil & Cathie are amazing landlords who listen to our concerns. They have built an awesome place for students that is located in a convenient spot.
