Our history

United by a passion for excellence

PUR IMMOBILIA was founded by two passionate individuals with different but complementary backgrounds. Their individual skills and combined talent would become PUR’s strength, propelling the company to the forefront. What did they have in common? The wisdom to surround themselves with experts who share their passion for excellence.

Our team

Cementing relationships

Since the company was founded, the PUR team has grown over the years and now counts on a group of enthusiasts who work in synergy in a friendly atmosphere.

Yann Lapointe

Co-President

Yann began his career as a co-owner of a property portfolio with more than 3,500 units, which he was responsible for managing. From 2006 to 2012, he was Vice-President of Operations at CAPREIT, one of Canada’s largest real estate investment trusts, with more 48,000 residential units across the country. Here, he had several responsibilities, including overseeing real estate portfolio management, asset allocation and acquisition strategies, as well as supervising major structural work. Yann regularly acts as a speaker, moderator and panelist at real estate forums, and he was the Chairman of the Board of the Corporation des propriétaires immobiliers du Québec. In 2017, after more than 30 years in the real estate field, Yann decided to partner with Philippe Bernard.

Philippe Bernard

Co-President and founder

Philippe has worn several hats over the course of his 25-year career in the real estate field. He built single-family homes in Eastern Township before becoming a specialized contractor for the construction of high-end country homes and then acting as a senior partner at Mayton Construction, a firm that specializes in residential and institutional projects. In 2004, he co-founded Mayton-DM, a joint venture between Mayton and DevMcGill. He then went on to develop 400,000 square feet in residential projects in downtown Montreal. In 2008, he founded PUR IMMOBILIA and his passion for design is at the heart of all his projects in the greater Montreal area.
