Gorham Real Estate/Fredericton Rentals Ltd. is currently seeking talented individuals interested in a GROUNDSKEEPER position with our well established and fast-growing company.  

Gorham Real Estate/Fredericton Rentals Ltd.

Fredericton Housing Ltd was established in 1950 after Joseph Gorham sold his Coca-Cola bottling plant. His vision of building “Better Homes for the Average Family” resulted in the construction of thousands of homes in New Brunswick. Skyline Acres and Fulton Heights are just two examples of residential subdivisions that were built by this ambitious company in the Fredericton Area.

During this time, Joe also realized the need for rental housing and began Fredericton Rentals Ltd. We now own and maintain close to 50 properties and nearly 600 rental units. In 1990, Jim Gorham added Gorham Real Estate to expand the business into residential real estate sales.

Today, Amy and Alex Gorham, third generation grand-children of Joe Gorham and both Business Administration graduates of UNB are managing and expanding Fredericton Rentals Ltd. Both working in the business from a young age and joining the family business full-time in 2005, Amy and Alex added Premiere Suites Fredericton in 2008.  Premiere Suites is a Canadian Franchise that spans coast to coast, providing extended-stay, furnished accommodation to the business traveler.  In 2010, Gorham Property Management was added to provide property management services to income property owners in Fredericton.
