Who We Are

Who We Are

Ratzlaff & Co. (formerly RDC Group) is a real estate investment company originally rooted in architectural design and founded by Dan Ratzlaff in 1971.

We are a second-generation family business, and a trusted leader in the timeless design and solid construction of multi-family home developments.  Operated from our office in Abbotsford, B.C, under the leadership of Carrie (Ratzlaff) Dyck, our core business has shifted to investing and managing purpose built rental housing with a long-term approach.  The strategic growth of the company, while maintaining excellence in our customer service, and treating our dedicated Team as family, is what drives our vision.  We have always believed in doing things right, so maintaining our properties to a high standard for the enjoyment of each resident, is a consistent focus of what we do.

At Ratzlaff & Co. we strive to make a positive difference every day in our community and the values that guide our daily operations include, Working Hard, Serving Together, Thinking Smart, and Living Fully

Treasure and Ricardo have amazed many of us tenants here – both are diligent, hardworking, loyal, and willing to make things right. You really hit the jackpot with these two, so I wanted to give a big thanks to you for hiring two real fantastic people to ensure the tenants here at Creekside are well looked after. – Bonnie

I relocated from Alberta and have rented here for one year. The building is awesome. The neighbours are great, the neighbourhood and convenience to shopping and food is close, secure environment, and easy highway access. I can see myself living here for a long time! -Sandra

“One word would be difficult to describe our Manager, but what seems the best is Family – we feel they are and treats us like family. Thank you” – R & M Takaki

Ratzlaff & Co. 50 Years

Giving Back

Contributing to the lives of others is part of who we are and has been passed down from generation to generation.  In 2011 our company organized a RDCares fund

 When you choose to be a resident of one of our homes, you are also helping to make a difference in the lives of people in your neighborhood and around the world. For instance, Ratzlaff & Co. matches the funds raised from recyclables collected at the properties to double the collective contribution with 100% of the funds going to local charities.  

What Have We Accomplished?

In celebration of 50 Years, we created an in-house challenge this year that will not only benefit the Team members, but also the community that surrounds us.  Each month that we meet our Team goals, we donate an additional $1,000 to a local charity – and the best news is that we have hit them 12 out of 12 months! There are so many ways that we can all be part of making our community stronger, but here are some local programs that we chose to support in 2021:

  1. Valley Therapeutic Equestrian Association – Initiate seed money to begin a therapy and counselling fund for those who need the support but cannot afford the amazing work at VTEA right here in the Fraser Valley.
  2. Starfish Backpack Program – Providing lunch boxes to kids in need at schools in each region where we do business – Chilliwack, Abbotsford, & Langley.
  3. Local Foodbanks – Annual Christmas foodbank drives in each community where that we serve. 
  4. Big Brothers Big Sisters
  5. Fraser Valley Childhood Development
  6. Abbotsford Police Foundation

We are truly grateful for this community and the country where we live, so giving back is just one way we can pass on a spirit of encouragement and make a difference in our community.

“I’ve been very happy at Midtown Club Suites since I moved in at the end of December 2019. The apartments are clean and modern, with lovely natural light from the large windows. I feel safe with the gated underground parking and door key systems. The location is great — you can easily walk to campus, the bus stop, shops and restaurants.” – Leanne

Seeing the way my manager operates this building has been like no other. He has the drive and compassion that makes a tenant, like myself, want to call this place ‘home’. I truly look forward to seeing him around.” – Robbie F.

My building manager Jennifer is the best, she is always there to assist and listen. Everyone loves her. This is the best place to live in Langley!” – Yvonne 

Midtown has gone above and beyond in accommodating my and my roommate’s needs. The building is quiet and the occupants are friendly. While issues arise only very rarely, when they do they provide useful communication and ensure that the problem is remedied quickly. 10/10 would recommend. Angelo
