Tribe Management Team

Our BC Roots

Tribe was born in Vancouver in early 2017, out of the marriage of a prop-tech company and a small Property Management company that was interested in being bold in a sea of same-old. Two companies wanting to disrupt and improve the Property Management industry.

In 2021, Tribe announced the acquisition of Gateway Property Management, a leading Canadian Property Management company with more than 40 years of experience in providing communities with Condo, Rental, and Commercial Management across BC, Alberta and Ontario.

Tribe and Gateway shared values for loyalty and family created the perfect opportunity to provide Community Management with heart across British Columbia and beyond.

Initially, Tribe grew out of a vision to connect neighbours with neighbours. Our CEO, Joseph Nakhla’s experience growing up in a six-unit low rise in Alexandria, Egypt instilled in him a sense of community founded on social values and responsibility with a particular focus on condo-living. You can read more about Tribe Management’s unique history here.

Today, Tribe Management is BC’s Strata and Rental Management leader, bringing Community Management with heart to more than 160 Communities from Victoria to Vancouver, Richmond to the Fraser Valley and everything in between!

Regional Directors

At Tribe, we understand the importance of accessible leadership. That's why our Regional Directors are just a call or click away from our clients, ensuring they’re always connected to the heart of our leadership, ready to guide them forward.

Unlike traditional Property Management companies, where Councils and Boards often feel isolated, our team-based approach ensures clients have access to a broader team of experts. Our Regional Directors work alongside our Community Managers and other department leaders, providing unparalleled service and support tailored to your community's needs.

Monika’s love for mountains and beaches meant Vancouver was the perfect place to settle when she and her family decided to move to Canada. When she’s not at work, Monika enjoys spending time outdoors; whether it’s tending to her garden or taking leisurely walks with her dog. When the weather doesn’t cooperate, Monika retreats to the kitchen, where she channels her creativity into cooking.
