January 14, 2016

Argus Properties is proud to support their employees in the workplace and in the community.  We would like to take this opportunity to celebrate with and highlight Rob Smith, Director of Leasing at Argus Properties, as alumni of the CFL.

Rob’s goal oriented drive stems in part from his prior involvement with the CFL, which he played for 14 seasons from 1981 to 1994 with the BC Lions, Toronto Argonauts, Montreal Concordes, Calgary Stampeders and the Ottawa Rough Riders. He was an East All-Star in 1990 and in 1992 he was an East All-Star, CFL All-Star, Most Outstanding Offensive Lineman in the East and went on to win the CFL Most Outstanding Offensive Lineman Award. Smith finished his career in the CFL with two seasons in BC (1993-1994), winning West All-Star honours in both years, and his second CFL All-Star selection in 1993. He never missed a regular or post-season game in his entire career, playing over 210 consecutive games in 14 years. Rob now resides in Kelowna BC where he is the Director of Leasing for Argus Properties Ltd.

Rob specializes in industrial and commercial properties having been with CBRE for 15 years prior to joining Argus in 2012. Over the course of his career, Rob has a proven track record as a result-oriented individual having successfully negotiated sales and lease transactions worth over $134,000,000 for companies such as: Pirelli Tire, Shaw Cable Systems, Finning International, Safeway Canada, just to name a few. He specializes in real estate market opportunity analysis, and  design and development strategies that maximize profitability and effective building use. Rob enjoys the specific challenges that arise with build-to-suit transactions that establishes a tenant’s specific requirements while also eliminating redundancies, and creating efficiencies that lower overall costs. The most recent notable transactions include: UBCO, Tempest Heli Parts and Fed-Ex.
