eQ Homes: The Enduring Quality Story.

eQ Homes Ottawa

More than just a simple shelter or a place to hang your hat, a home is built to nurture. It’s a haven to keep loved ones safe, to enrich and delight. A place for loved ones to gather and a place for them to grow. It is a vital piece of a community.

Building a home is about more than building walls and putting on roofs. It is about delivering on a promise made to those living within its walls that it will continue to last. So, building a home is more than a job. It’s a responsibility, because home is where families invest their dreams, their lives and their future.

eQ Homes has built a reputation for creating homes and communities that live up to this standard. It is a philosophy that grew from a passion for doing things the right way the first time. And time has proven the wisdom of these values.

We benefit from the expertise of our parent company, Regional Group, whose six-plus decades of experience have laid the foundation for eQ Homes’ continued success which we can sum up in two simple, yet powerful words. Two words which convey the eQ Homes culture of integrity, craftsmanship, innovation, and long-term thinking.

Enduring Quality.

Regional Group

Three generations of leadership

Three generations of leadership:
Sender Gordon, President & CEO, Steve Gordon, Executive Chairman & Len Potechin, founder.

Our history is a story of endurance through market cycles, design trends and business evolution. eQ Homes is a wholly-owned affiliate company of Regional Group, an Ottawa company that began as Regional Realty in 1958.

Regional founder, Len Potechin, recognized the potential for growth and community development achievable through real estate investment and management. The firm was also an early adopter of technology, putting Canada’s first mainframe computer to work in 1977.

eQ Homes was started in 2009, launching the landmark communities of eQuinelle and Greystone Village.

Today, Regional Group has a $5+ billion pipeline of commercial, mixed-use and residential projects in

development, as well as a management portfolio of more than 2.9 million square feet of commercial space and 2,000 residential units.

eQ Homes has grown into one of the Ottawa area’s premiere home building companies, winning awards at the national level and accolades from buyers in every community we create.

Building a home is about more than building walls and putting on roofs. It is about a promise made to those living within its walls that it will continue to last.

We intend to continue building a history of Enduring Quality.
