ALL ABOUT JOSAN PROPERTIES
A Family Passion
Josan Properties was founded on the values of honesty, hard work, and perseverance. The company's founder, Bill Josan, worked tirelessly in the early 1980's to start a company that would eventually become a real estate juggernaut. Immigrating to Canada by himself as a teenager with only the shirt on his back, he is the epitome of the Canadian dream. Through his wit, charm, knowledge, and determination, Bill was able to excel at residential home sales in the 80's, being awarded the prize of Edmonton's "Rookie of the Year" in 1985. Bill gradually went from real estate sales to real estate investing and progressed from homes to apartments and commercial centers. It is Bill's vision and his passion for real estate that laid the foundation for the company's continued success, even decades later. Bill now acts as an advisor to the business, which his son Raka now manages.
The original values of honesty, hard work, and perseverance remain the pillars of the company under Raka's leadership. The passion for real estate is a family trait that continues to drive the company. Personal and professional integrity remain core principles of the organization, backed by Bill's oft-repeated words, "There are too many honest ways to make money in real estate to consider the alternatives."
