Who we are

Altus Group is a leading provider of software, data solutions and technology-enabled expert services to the global commercial real estate (CRE) industry. We are a single provider of end-to-end CRE solutions empowering clients to make informed decisions and drive strategic growth.

Headquartered in Canada, we have approximately 2,250 employees around the world, with operations in North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific. We are at the center of what drives the real estate industry and continue to break ground every day with innovative solutions and best practices that touch every aspect of the real estate life cycle.

The opportunity

Reporting to the Director, our Research, Valuation, and Advisory division has an opportunity for a Real Estate Valuation Consultant on our Winnipeg team. You will focus on market research, data auditing, and quantitative analysis. You will  play a critical role conducting onsite property inspections,, conducting appraisals and overseeing the analyses of junior team members at a scaling, globally recognized industry leader.

Who you are

You are an AACI qualified Appraiser with exposure in the Winnipeg market. You want to join a Canadian company that is scaling worldwide and offers career development opportunities internally. You have insights into the commercial real estate industry, market dynamics and appraisals/valuations and you want the chance to broaden your exposure and your network.

What's in it for you

Exposure, mentorship, and career growth. This is a chance to be part of an organization that works on an exciting range of real estate property projects across the country, a place that is recognized at the top of our industry. You will gain and apply deeper insights into property valuations and appraisals, fostering relationships with internal team members and clients. You will be mentored by multiple senior appraisers, gaining exposure as you work on increasingly high-profile clients independently, on more complex projects and accelerate towards a Senior Consultant position. As we grow, the need for new, innovative leaders with genuine team building skills, to move up and over into different areas, exists. 

What you will do:

  • Prepare accurate appraisal reports. You will draft accurate appraisal reports using the latest market information and practitioner knowledge, including the financial models, qualitative and quantitative market analyses, reconciliation and conclusion section, and final property value.

  • Conduct market research. You will research and collect data from internal databases, third-party sources, land use planning designations, development applications, comparable land/building transactions, and the latest market information related to the property under review.

  • Conduct data audits. You will audit and enhance the quality and usability of data collected and entered into internal databases (i.e., Altus Tools, etc.). You will analyze new data entered for anomalies or trends.

  • Conduct quantitative analysis. You will complete financial models using Excel/Argus to build quantitative analysis and generate valuation models using industry-standard methodologies. You will apply the Income, Comparison, or Cost Approach and make knowledgeable adjustments to analyze a property’s future cash flow and net present value; derive a value indication for a property by comparing similar properties that have recently sold; or derive a value based on the comparison with the cost to build a new or substitute property. 

  • Conduct property inspections. You will independently perform general property (land & building) inspections to validate site specs (building type, description, land use, etc.), take measurements, photos, etc., to be used in client reports. You will attend more difficult/complex property inspections with senior staff to further develop your skills.

  • Coach. You will audit and support the work of junior team members, offering guidance on data gathering, sharing constructive feedback on data quality, and acting as a point of escalation.

Our new Real Estate Valuation Consultant will have:

  • The education and experience. You have a degree in Commerce, Economics, or a related field and your AACI designation. You have 3-5 years of progressive experience in the Winnipeg market providing advisory services and valuation consulting. 

  • The technical skills. You have excellent financial modeling skills in ARGUS and Excel. You can learn new tools and teach others how to use the latest technology.

  • The analytical skills. You have strengths in research and analyzing quantitative and qualitative data. 

  • The consulting skills. You have excellent written skills and can formulate comprehensive appraisal and consulting reports. Your presentation and communication skills are outstanding, and you can build relationships, gaining the trust of your clients. You are a team player who can function autonomously and fit in at both the client site and your home base.

  • The drive. You can take the initiative and be resourceful, operating with a high degree of integrity, honesty, and ethics. You are available to work flexible hours and travel locally for inspections in your own vehicle when it is safe to do so.
