SUSTAINABLE PROPERTY MAINTENANCE
Committed to you, committed to responsible living.
My name is Marco Koomans and I started Bragg Creek Property Services with a desire to help others. I have a strong commitment to the environment and I hope that through my business, I can help others reach their sustainable goals. Sustainable living isn’t something that I’m just trying to sell to others. My commitment is personal, as I have solar on my house, a high efficient wood stove as a heat source, a backup generator, and I grow organic vegetables in my own garden and greenhouse for my family.
My hobbies include landscaping, furniture making, gardening and all outdoor sports such as skiing, x-country, backpacking, canoeing, etc. The greatest reward I have received from operating my own business is the trust I have been given by my clients.
