Founder: Les Mitton

Leston Holdings was founded in 1980 by Les Mitton. After spending years traveling across Canada and the United States, working on large scale property management, development and construction projects Les decided to plant stronger roots in Edmonton where his young family was just beginning to grow. Les ventured out on his own with the acquisition of a single piece of land on the North edge of Edmonton’s downtown core. Through years of hard work and dedication Les expanded the company’s portfolio to include numerous multi-family residential and commercial holdings. In 2005 Les entrusted the responsibility of the company to his son, David Mitton, and daughter, Dinika Matychuk in favour of settling into a slower pace of life. Never one to sit still, even at a distance, Les remained devoted to the company and offered steadfast guidance to David and Dinika as Leston Holdings further evolved into the strongly rooted, community oriented company that it is today.

Mission Statement

It is the Mission of Leston Holdings (1980) Ltd. to own and operate a high quality Real Estate portfolio, catering to both residential clientele and national commercial tenants.

We are a family owned company that values business integrity.  Our growth will be achieved by continuing to respect the vendors from whom we purchase real estate and by adding intrinsic value to the real estate acquired.

All Real Estate developments or acquisitions will honor the land and respect the wishes of the community.

It is more important to us to be the best landlord not the biggest.



“Leston Holdings is awesome!  After searching for weeks they helped me find the perfect apartment.  Everything was so easy, my apartment is beautiful!  And I already feel at home.  Thanks for making my decision so easy.”
