Learn about the Realty Services Division, which manages the rental and lease of City-owned properties.

Realty Services is one of six core divisions in Surrey's Engineering Department. The Realty Services division is made up of skilled professionals who perform all aspects of real estate-related activity for the City.

The division is responsible for the fair and equitable acquisition, disposition, development, management and maintenance of the City’s real estate assets. The division also provides real estate services to City decision-makers, other City departments and the general public to accomplish City goals.
