The last quarter of the year.
It is hard to believe that October is already here, but then again, one only needs to take a drive around to see the leaves changing colour, the mums starting to bloom, the air getting colder and the days getting shorter. Fall invites us to pull out the cozy blankets, pillows and throws and enjoy more evenings by the fire.

Not only do we get to marvel at the breathtaking colours of a changing season but we get to embrace the changes in our daily lives and traditions.

So we may have to get creative when it comes to Thanksgiving, perhaps a virtual gathering with friends and family showcasing different ways to cook the perfect turkey or make a green bean casserole using a secret family recipe or debating through a zoom call which is the best pie, apple or pumpkin. While Thanksgiving may not be the same, I hope you have many things to be thankful for.

I am thankful for my family, for my extraordinary staff and Associates at Engel & Völkers Collingwood Muskoka Grey Bruce and you, my friends and clients. Thank you for your trust and support over the years. I will continue to strive and improve each day to offer the best bespoke experience I can provide.

From all of us at Engel & Völkers Collingwood Muskoka Grey Bruce, we wish you and your family a safe and happy Thanksgiving.

With all my appreciation,

Our photographer, Chris Gardiner, compiled beautiful footage of this amazing season through Grey, Simcoe and Muskoka and the views are spectacular! Just go for a drive and enjoy the explosion of reds, oranges, yellows and browns that mother natures provides this time of the year.
There are two organizations near and dear to our hearts, Special Olympics and the Georgian Triangle Humane Society (GTHS).
We proudly donate a portion of our income from real estate sales to both 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.
And remember… Your Referrals Help Continue the Life Changing Work by Special Olympics and The GTHS! We are on a quest to raise $25,000 for these organizations!

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.  
September was a very strong month in our area. Average sales price continues to increase and in some areas it has hit record highs. However, there is still a lack of inventory and that has slowed down some sales. If you are considering making a move, please call me and let's start the conversation.
For the Southern Georgian Bay area sales are up +43.9% for the month of September 2020 over the same month last year, and up +11.9% compared to August 2020.
Average price is up +33.8% to $692,653 for the month of September. New Listings are down -9.6%
Here is the breakdown by neighbourhood.
If you would like to know what does all of this mean to you as you are considering selling or buying, simply give me a call or send me an email and I'll be happy to help.
There is no cost or obligation on your part to have an initial meeting and go over what is important to you, what are your needs and wants. As everyone's situation is different, it would be my pleasure to offer you my expertise and advice.

It Takes a Village: Merlin's Story
Merlin. What a name! What an extraordinary story!

Roughly two months ago the GTHS received a call about a tiny single kitten that urgently needed help. He was only a couple days old, with his eyes still closed and subsequently rushed into the care of one of their experienced foster volunteers Karen Milloy.

Bringing home bottle baby kittens is like bringing home a newborn. Bottle baby kittens require around the clock care so that they can have the opportunity to thrive and survive. They are so much work but they are so special and so loved.
