Groupe Firma, Projets immobiliers: a history of involvement, expertise and passion

Involvement, expertise and passion for real estate are what led two entrepreneurs to join forces in order to create Groupe Firma. Yannick Poisson Michel, an engineer and building contractor, and Jérôme Thibeault, who formerly worked in the banking industry, set out in the world of real estate with one goal in mind: to build high-quality housing developments with units for lease.

With hundreds of condo units for lease in Montérégie, Groupe Firma has made it their mission to offer tenants unique living spaces in choice locations, with plenty of natural light, exceptional soundproofing, large windows, balconies, WiFi and common areas.

Groupe Firma offers an exceptional experience

Groupe Firma relies on innovation to consistently set themselves apart, maintain the highest standards and offer their clients an exceptional experience. Firma’s properties are built by Gestion Rockethammer Inc., a construction company that has established an exemplary reputation with over 10 years in business.

Chester is in charge of property management. The company offers a personalized approach to tenant management, management of preventive maintenance, emergency repairs and renovations, and standardization of accounting.

Together, the three companies have approximately thirty employees, and the team continues to expand on a monthly basis.

Apartment construction, rentals and management

Groupe Firma already has several developments to its credit, with hundreds of condos for lease.
