Enjoying the Last Bit of Summer.
Living in Canada, we know it is bound to happen, the glorious, warm, sunny days must come to an end... but not yet. I hope that you are making the most out of these last few summer weeks.

If there is something I have learned is that time does not stop or slow down, and all we can do is make every moment count.
We know this year has been like no other, and that includes the real estate market in our area.
There is a huge demand for properties in South Georgian Bay, Grey Bruce and Muskoka, so this may be the right time for anyone who is considering selling or buying . Please make sure to check the Market Stats Report below.

Soon we will be talking about the first snowfall but until then, may you seize the day and enjoy the last bit of Summer.

Also, please remember that some children are returning to school this month, so please make sure you slow down when driving near schools and family neighbourhoods.

With all my gratitude.


Please make sure to check our GG Magazine section, as well as a list of amazing local events, by clicking on the "View entire message" at the bottom of the page.
Golfers of all skill levels can still take advantage of the weather and find courses in the Grey, Bruce and Simcoe Counties. Over 80 courses to choose from, some with spectacular views, others with an incredible 19th hole and best of all they are closer to home!
Watch Crusoe the Dachshund and his little brother Oakley show us how it's done.
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.  
The trend continues in this sellers market with people still looking to buy in the area, but with a lack of inventory properties are being sold rather quick.

CREA is still working on providing us with full stats as they are looking at 21 boards that have now merged their data into one central location. As soon as we get the detailed report for the Southern Georgian Bay Western District, which covers Wasaga Beach to Meaford, we will send them in a separate email to you.

In the meantime I am sharing with you some of the general stats from the Southern Georgian Bay Association of REALTORS
For the Southern Georgian Bay area sales are up +73.8% for the month of August 2020 over the same month last year, and down -3.9% compared to July 2020.
Average price is up +33.3% to $666,849 for the month of August. New Listings are down -8.9%
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.

Creating the best real estate experience for my clients is one of my goals and I am happy that we were able to achieve that with Dr. Barry Atack and Dr. Kristina Dervaitis. Their spectacular waterfront home in Wasaga Beach sold within days of going on the market.

Breathtaking Views of Lake Rosseau.
Muskoka Lakes

My dear clients and friends Jo-Ann and Brian have placed their trust in me and this is the third property I am able to assist them with.
Along with our dynamic duo Ruthann Brown and Crystal Vienneau from our Engel and Völkers Muskoka Shop and thanks to their extensive knowledge of the area and network of buyers we were able to present a solid offer and had happy clients on both ends.
Now, Nina and her daughter Jacqueline, who had been looking for a cottage for quite a while, are beyond thrilled to call this beautiful cottage their home away from home. Congratulations to all!
The Ideal Vacation Home.
Wasaga Beach

Garnet Pratt and I were fortunate to have listed and sold this amazing beach access property. Using the tools and technology provided by the Engel & Völkers platform and our sphere of influence/network enabled a successful transaction. From the initial meeting with Lisa and Steve to the implementation of strategic marketing campaigns, local and international exposure, two live FB virtual open houses with more than 10,000 viewers, negotiations and a personal concierge to assist with their closing being just part of the list to sale process.
Congratulations Lisa and Steve! It has been an honour assisting you.
It is thanks to the relationships we build and the culture we create that we are able to connect people and help them find a place they can call Home!⠀Congratulations to all parties involved.

It Doesn’t Matter Where, Every Canadian Real Estate Market Is Seeing Big Price Growth.

Better Dwelling
Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA) data shows prices made a huge increase in July and not just in known “hot” markets like Toronto, and Montreal either, but substantial monthly increases were seen in almost every real estate market across the country.

Why the Home Library Is the New Hot Place to Be.

Elle Decor
This newly found time at home invites an opportunity to consider not only which books are on our shelves and what they look like, but also how the library makes us feel.

Where the Water and Rock Meet
Grey County, Ontario offers an abundance of waterfalls. So appealing that they merit their own tour, these special places are often just a short drive or hike from busy roads. Whether in Owen Sound, Eugenia or other rural areas, all have scenic settings worth visiting.

A Tail From The Road: Willy & Juggy
Willy (top) and Juggy (bottom) were part of a precious cargo, a group of cats and dogs that were transferred from Sault Ste. Marie looking for their forever home.
Unfortunately, Willy and Juggy had been hit by a car and had sustained painful and serious injuries. And while they are currently being assessed and cared for by the talented orthopedic surgery team at Thornbury Veterinary Hospital, we are hoping and praying for their full recovery.
It is thanks to donations to the GTHS that not only the trip up North was possible but they can help with some of the medical bills.
This is one more reason why I am committed to continue my support to the GTHS.

Sustainable Luxury
We are excited to present our new and relaunched GG Yachting Magazine - wrapped up in an entirely new, modern design, more future-oriented than ever and for the first time exclusively available online.
The current issue is dedicated to the topic of sustainability and takes a look at the future and the well-being of our planet - learn all about the non-profit organization Water Revolution Foundation, which is committed to promoting sustainable technologies in the yachting industry. You can also look forward to the Yachting Advice column and the cover story about the luxury sailing yacht Black Pearl, paving the way for sustainable yacht design.
I have also been busy using my 35+ years of real estate experience to write a few books that you may enjoy. Click on the images below to get your FREE copy.
