About Redwood

main content

Redwood Properties is a Toronto area based best-in-class developer specializing in the construction and property management of high-rise apartment buildings, with over 35 years of real estate development and property management experience.

Originally founded in 1955, Gonte Construction Limited was a real estate development company, focused on the construction of high-rise rental apartment buildings in the Greater Toronto Area. As the company continued to grow, Gonte established a successful property management company and low-rise residential arm. The company eventually rebranded as the Preston Group, which managed over 2,200 rental units across the GTA and Preston Homes, a residential homebuilder of successful low-rise subdivisions in communities such as King City, Alliston, Courtice, and Newmarket.

In 2012, as the business passed on from one generation to the next, succession planning led to the evolution of two independently owned and operated companies - Preston Group/Apartments and Redwood Properties. The principals behind Redwood Properties were responsible for the management of several rental buildings operated under the Preston Group name and all of the development and construction activities of Preston Homes.

Redwood Properties has decades of experience in property management and in its short existence has established itself as one of the premier boutique property managers in the GTA. Preston Homes, who is known for its exceptional neighbourhoods and the quality craftsmanship of its homes, recently rebranded itself under the Redwood banner as Redwood Living.
