Sharon and George blended their unique styles to better serve the Muskoka Lakes real estate market in 2000.
Muskoka has been home to Sharon all her life. Her passion for the real estate profession is fuelled by her passion for the Muskoka Lakes. A successful veteran realtor, Sharon began her career in the business 1978 at the family-held brokerage Merchant Real Estate. Sharon Merchant may be a familiar name to some. At age 20 she was the youngest Broker in Canada and served on the Muskoka Real Estate Board through most of her twenties, as Director of Finance and on the Ethics and Membership Committees for seven years and then as Board President in 1985.
In 1992 Johnston & Daniel Muskoka took Sharon into the fold and provided her with the opportunity to further her profession with seasoned realtors with exceptional local knowledge. J&D served as a great springboard for Sharon when she, along with a handful of other Realtors, reached out to the founders of Chestnut Park in 1994. For 17 years Sharon broadened her experience in Chestnut Park’s boutique-style brokerage.
Prior to joining Sharon in real estate, George enjoyed a wonderful career in aviation, flying helicopters overseas for Canadian Helicopter Corporation for several decades. He obtained his real estate license in 2000, “closing the hanger doors” to navigate the Muskoka Lakes real estate marketplace with Sharon.
The Muskoka Real Estate Marketplace is no longer home to just boutique brokerages. Competition has expanded the Muskoka real estate marketplace and now includes several firms. In 2014, Sharon and George joined Royal LePage Lakes of Muskoka Realty in Port Carling. This move, combined with the ability to market internationally and nationally using the latest in technology provides Sharon and George’s clients with exceptional service.
Clients are an integral part of Sharon and George’s team. Sharon and George strive to give their clients the benefit of their local knowledge and abundant experience with honest advice to achieve an uncompromising level of service for buyers and sellers wishing to purchase or sell a Muskoka waterfront property.
There isn’t a lot of down time in the Muskoka marketplace, but when they have it, Sharon and George can be found on the water, volunteering for not-for-profit boards or relaxing on their dock in the Beaumaris area of Lake Muskoka where together they raised their three children.
As custodians of your hopes and dreams, the trust you place in Sharon and George will be the foundation of a successful working relationship streamlined to attain or sell your Muskoka dream vacation property.
