Who are we?

Calgary Dwelling  Consultants is the dynamic duo of Nelda Schulte and Gilbert Donkersgoed. We’re a property management, tenant acquisition and landlord training company.  We’re also property investors and Gil is a licensed property manager brokered with Maxwell South Star Realty.

For over 15 years of combined experience, we have honed our skills and processes so that we now boast we boast a 100% success rate in finding quality tenants for quality properties. This translates into us finding you quality tenants who pay their rent every month, and take great care of their rental properties.

Our property management services give you peace of mind and freedom to spend your time where you want rather than dealing with headaches.

We like to quote Don Campbell, of REIN Canada, who says on his blog  “Make your investing boring, so the rest of your life can be exciting. ”  (Here is the entire article, it’s a good read)


Our rigorous  5-step screening process has placed over 100 excellent tenants in condominiums, townhouses, duplexes, houses and apartments in Calgary for over four years.

We’ve also placed excellent tenants in our own properties for over 15 years.

Are you…an investor with no time to find tenants? Can’t sell your property and decide to rent?

Our clients are residential property investors of  one or several investment properties, busy professionals who don’t have the time to find tenants, and property owners who choose to rent their homes now and sell when the economy rises.

If your goal is to have passive  rental properties as part of your investment portfolio or to have a tenant cover your mortgage until the housing prices rise, we’re here to support you!

As property owners ourselves, we understand the importance of finding the right tenant to keep your property profitable. We own rental properties in Calgary, Edmonton, Sooke, BC and Fort McMurray.

Education & Training

We’re always learning and we’re guessing you are too!  To support you, we offer landlord training through our Landlord Fundamentals 101 online training program.

We also have a Facebook Group to support landlords who choose to self-manage, it’s called Landlord Knowledge Network – we’re inviting you to join!


We take great pride in the work we do, and represent high quality properties to high quality tenants.
