About Us

Where it began

Swisscan Properties Inc., formerly Normbrau Inc., was founded in Germany over 50 years ago by Entrepreneur and Businessman Hermann Leckebusch. His strong business acumen enabled him to quickly build a highly profitable and reputable real estate development firm with offices now spanning across Germany, Switzerland, and Canada. Timur Leckebusch, His son, led the group in Canada who opened the first Toronto office in 1987 and Swisscan Properties Inc. was founded soon after to lead the North American arm of Normbrau Inc.

Timur quickly established Swisscan Properties Inc. as a leader in the built environment. National Corporations such as Goodlife Fitness, HSBC, SportChek, Subway, Blockbuster, ABB, ADP and many more have since entrusted Swisscan Properties Inc. as their Landlord and for some, as their Developer and Design Builder.


The success of the Leckebush Family is founded on the pursuit of delivering timely results, lasting value and outstanding quality to each and every one of its clients and partners.

About Timur.

      Timur Leckebusch, the founder and president of Swiscan Properties inc. is an entrepreneur from Germany. Growing up he learned the ins and outs of business underneath his father, Herman Leckebusch, who too was an entrepreneur in the construction and development business. After taking a trip to Toronto, Canada in the early 80’s, Herman realized the business opportunity and decided to extend his business into Canada.

      Timur grew increasingly interested in his father’s business as he grew older. While studying to be a lawyer at the University of Münich, his studies were abruptly halted after his father told him he was needed in Canada to run the office in Toronto.

      Upon arrival to Canada, Timur and his father founded Swisscan Properties Inc. for property management purposes initially to manage Normbau’s Canadian asset portfolio. It was then in the early 90’s when Herman decided to retreat his Canadian investments due to economic pressures at the time. With his family calling him home, Timur had a different idea. He saw opportunity in the ashes of the Canadian real estate market and decided to battle it out for himself and explored new opportunities on his own.

Now, nearly 35 years later. Timur has built strong relationships with clients which have proven to be long lasting partnerships. Knowledgeable and wise, Timur remains hungry for the next deal.
