Since then Gord and his family, including some beloved German Shorthaired Pointers, have been fortunate to live on and experience first hand the beauty of Lake Joseph, Lake Rosseau, and Lake Muskoka.
Gord is an active golf member at Oviinbyrd Golf Club and dining member at Port Carling Golf & Country Club.
Gord and Tracy were fantastic throughout the whole process. They were able to identify the demands within our area and suggest a suitable date to list. Because they have lived and worked in the Muskoka area for years they really understand the market and timing. They thoroughly inspected our home to point out all of the upgrades and important features in order to accurately provide a listing price. They were extremely helpful in the setup/staging suggestions for our property in order to attract the maximum number of potential buyers. The pictures for the listing were done by a professional photographer and the glossy brochure they provided for prospective purchasers helped to showcase the features of the cottage. They held an agent open house before the property went on MLS to help drive interest. We had several showings on the first two days of the listing and received a full price offer on the second day. Gord and Tracy provided us with support through the entire transaction to ensure the sale closed on time and hassle-free. They were even able to find us our next property to purchase. Highly recommended!!

We are so fortunate to have had Tracy & Gord as agents to sell our Muskoka island property. Their modern, hi-tech approach was instrumental in getting the right market exposure that led to a very quick sell above our asking price. Tracy & Gord are truly professionals, so easy to work with and very down to earth. Most notably, their efforts far surpassed both our expectations and their responsibilities. Evident passion for what they do, complemented by their skills with hi-tech and talents in negotiations, make Tracy & Gord an ideal team to work with whether buying or selling a property. You simply won’t find better realtors anywhere!

Gord and Tracy helped us to sell an old family cottage in 2018, and then to buy a new cottage before the year was out. I was impressed by the work Gord and Tracy did to stage our cottage for sale. They identified numerous ways to improve the overall appearance, including minor repairs and storage of clutter at their own expense. The price established for the listing generated a lot of interest and some competing offers. I think the marketing was bang on. We will seek Gord and Tracy’s assistance for any future real estate needs in the Muskoka and adjoining areas.

To say that Gord & Tracy go the extra mile would be a vast understatement. They are friendly, knowledgeable, patient, and always made themselves available to answer questions and view listings. Their knowledge of the cottage market in general, and Muskoka real estate in particular was a valuable resource. We truly believe that they were not just interested in making "a sale", but were genuinely interested in finding the right fit for our family. We could not give them a higher recommendation.

Your service was amazing from beginning to end. I was shocked at how easy you made it for us. You were 100% there for us from the cleaning up, prepping, storing items, showing, and even taking the items away from the storage unit for us that we weren't keeping. It was more than we expected! The sale went quickly and smoothly, and you were very easy and thoughtful to deal with. I would highly recommend you and Tracy without hesitation.
