A New Year, A Fresh Start.
First, let me say that I wish you ALL the best year ahead. Safety and good health are paramount.

Let us (Tam & I) share this news with you. After careful thought and consideration we have decided to merge real estate brokerages.

Engel & Völkers Collingwood Muskoka Grey Bruce has merged with Engel & Völkers Toronto Central under the leadership of Anita Springate-Renaud. Anita has established offices in Don Mills and Yorkville. This will allow us greater networking opportunities, the ability to open up more locations (plans for Owen Sound, Huntsville and a flagship location in Collingwood and Port Carling are already underway) and to build a larger, commanding presence regionally and of course globally.

This is a win, win for all, the buyers, sellers, advisors, partners, service it allows the brand to grow, strengthen and dominate a major sector of the real estate market in Ontario.

Please feel free to reach out to us with questions, comments or just to say hello. The future is bright!

From our CEO Anthony Hitt: "I could not be more proud. In a year of challenges, Engel & Völkers exceeded expectations and recorded its most successful year-to-date thanks to our clients, advisors, and leaders throughout the Americas and across the globe."
This year we have decided to support three magnificent organizations that are near and dear to our hearts, Special Olympics and the Georgian Triangle Humane Society (GTHS) and The Living Wish Foundation.
We proudly donate a portion of our income from real estate sales to all three of these organizations.

As you probably know, Special Olympics has impacted the lives of its athletes in profound ways, most notably in building self confidence, friendships and self-esteem.

The GTHS is a non-profit charity that operates an animal center serving the South Georgian Bay region by providing shelter for homeless animals and adopting them to caring families.

The Living Wish Foundation is devoted to making the world a better place helping terminally ill patients re-frame hope and realize their dreams.
And remember… Your Referrals Help Continue the Life Changing Work by Special Olympics, The GTHS and The Living Wish Foundation!

This is where you come in… If you or anyone you know is considering making a move, we would like to offer a FREE No Obligation to Sell Consultation.

Simply call me direct at 705-441-5800 or forward my number on.

Creating the Perfect Home Office
In June of 2020, a staggering 42% of U.S. workers were working from home full-time. Even prior to the impacts of COVID-19, remote work was gaining in popularity with a 173% increase between 2005 and 2018, according to Review 42’s Work Statistics. As workers report higher productivity at home, it’s likely that remote work will remain popular even after the pandemic’s end.

It is that time of the year where we set our New Year's resolutions and I hope this video inspires and motivates you or at the very least it brings you some laughter.

With the recent announcement of more strict measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19, I thought I would invite you to take a (virtual) trip around the world and look forward to the day we can see some of these amazing places in person.

Iqaluit, Canada
The most northern regions of Canada consist of some of the coldest and most hauntingly beautiful locations in the world. However, they are completely unable to be reached by road -it’s a fly in-fly out kind of territory. One man from the North learned how to take the Google Map Treks camera out in his community to share with the world.
This website offers the opportunity to explore Iqaluit in the territory of Nunavut – located up on Baffin Island. Walk around the town to see what life is like in this remote community
