There aren't enough adjectives to describe Doug and Rebecca (D&R). They are both being incredibly knowledgeable, honest, ethical, patient and very kind. We have searched for a cottage property for quite some time and D&R were with us every step of the way. They were patient and understanding and always kept our best interest at the forefront. To give an example on how great they are, there was a property that we were interested in and we just couldn't make the trip from Toronto. D&R knew exactly what we were looking for and they actually offered to view it on our behalf. They launched their boat to access the property and face timed us when they were walking through it. Who does that..!!?? They would always say, "we will find you a cottage" and they did! Finally, after the sale, you need to know that D&R don't walk away. They continue to help to make sure that everything is in place for a smooth transition. Their customer service is spectacular - from start to finish. We feel blessed to have met them because we feel that we would have not found our outstanding cottage property without them. We have already recommended them and will 100% continue to recommend them. They are by far, the best in the business.
Rebecca and Doug are very positive, professional and caring. They made selling our home a wonderful experience. They were recommended to us by close friends who had also sold their home through them. They are always available to answer the many questions that come with this process, and returned our calls very quickly. We highly recommend Rebecca and Doug to anyone who wants to sell, or buy a home. You won't find a more capable and experienced team. Many thanks to you both
Our dream team of Doug and Rebecca first met with us on a bright winter’s day in early 2020, and began to work with us towards placing our home on the market. Through the spring and summer they pulled together a sales plan for the fall, helping us to understand the process, comparables in the Muskokas, and most importantly to us, taking the time to understand our unique home and how to position it in the crazy covid-era market. At each step of the way they took the time to explain what to expect next, and helped us to decide on the asking price and sales strategy. Rebecca and Doug have a synergy and compatibility that is truly rare in their market. We consider them friends and wish them well as they continue to represent buyers and sellers in Ontario’s cottage country.
If you have decided to list your home or cottage in Muskoka, call Rebecca and Doug. Whether it is a simple cottage on a small lake, or a grand summer home on the big lakes, they will exceed all your expectations.
Thanks Doug and Rebecca. You were very knowledgeable and did an excellent job representing your clients. I'd definitely recommend your services to anyone looking for buy or sell in cottage country. Hopefully we'll bump into each other in Port Carling when the restaurants are open!
