Mark and Susan Benson present a unique experience set that matches sellers with qualified buyers. We are full time, year round liscenced Realtors® with a loyal network of buyers and sellers, extensive marketing and sales experience and solid understanding of the markets within which we work. Plus we have surrounded ourselves with experts to ensure that our clients get timely information for every situation. That's why over 90% of our clients are repeat or personally introduced to us, and why we are in the top 5% in our market.*
Mark's background includes tourism combined with a love of sailing, boating and the outdoors. Since joining Lakes of Muskoka Royal LePage, Brokerage over 17 years ago he has dedicated his efforts to growing our business almost exclusively through personal introduction. Mark's family history links him to steamships that opened up cottaging along the Trent Severn Waterway. Plus, he is the only Realtor® to have had a song dedicated to him and performed live in concert by a famous Canadian songstress.
