Founded in 1971, Zalco started as a small property management firm with operations concentrated primarily in suburban Maryland and Washington DC. Over the last four decades, Zalco has become much more, steadily and thoughtfully expanding its in-house expertise and operational coverage in the marketplace to meet the changing needs of an ever-growing client base. In 2017, Zalco Realty made a strategic decision to partner with FirstService Residential, North America’s leading residential property management company. FirstService Residential shares the same philosophy and values upon which Zalco was founded – integrity, innovation, leadership and service excellence. Its mission is to provide full-service solutions and genuinely helpful service that add value and enhance the quality of life of every community and resident it serves – a philosophy that aligned extremely well with that of Zalco.
