Listing and Buyer Agent- $4.2mm Sale on Silver Lake-Muskoka

Buyer Testimonial:
“We had noticed the cottage we purchased on the Sotheby’s website, were intrigued and contacted Ross. We knew nothing about Muskoka at the time. Ross clearly knew everything about the property and the area, educated us, gracefully answered all of our silly questions and ultimately made us feel comfortable with the area and our decision to buy the property. Ross acted for both buyer and seller in this transaction which turned out to be an advantage as he earned the trust of both parties. As a result, Ross was able to work out any issues that arose to the satisfaction of all. We would recommend Ross to anyone looking to purchase a property in the Muskoka region” Katherine and David Scott (Vice Chairman and Managing Director | IB-Mining | CIBC Capital Markets | CIBC World Markets Inc.)

Seller Testimonial:
I viewed the sale of my beloved cottage property as the passage of something beautiful in this world from one appreciative caretaker to the next. I was looking for a particular buyer, and I was looking for a particular kind of agent who saw what I saw in the property, and who could effectively communicate that vision. Ross did all of that. He is well organized, thorough, and fair and I highly recommend him. Scott Leckie, CFA-Principal and Portfolio Manager- Takota Asset Management Inc. (Silver Point Drive-Seguin Township- Muskoka Lakes)

Listing and Buyer Agent- Sold Full List Price in under 4 weeks

Sellers Testimonial
"After making one of the most difficult decisions in our "house moving" experience....we decided to give Sotheby's a call. We were fortunate enough to meet Ross Halloran to discuss his marketing strategies and get his opinion of our home.. We were impressed from the start. Ross was detailed in expressing his thoughts and knowledge of the business, compassionate when he needed to be and most importantly, he did exactly what he said he was going to do.....sell our home! Which he did in under 4 weeks for the full list price! We would highly recommend Ross for your real estate needs." - Mitch & Barb Kavanagh Sellers/Owners

Buyers Testimonial
"Hi Ross, we wanted to take a minute to send you a quick note to thank you for all of your help in the purchase of our new country home - we have affectionately named it the “Lake House". We are so happy that you took us to that next house when were looking a month ago - it was just what we were looking for and you did such a great job helping us finalize all of the arrangements. It is not often that you come across someone so dedicated to their profession - you are that person and you made us feel so very comfortable when making the final decision to purchase the home and kept it moving forward until we were successful. We are looking forward to having you join us at the Lake House for dinner once we are settled. Thank you Ross for being such a great professional and now a new friend." -Dave O'Brien, Former CEO-Toronto Hydro & Marilyn Ball, City Manager-City of Brampton (1863 Buxton Rd, Farquhar Lake, Haliburton)

Buyer Agent- Large Family Lakefront Compound

"Ross Halloran of Sotheby`s Realty was my buyer agent in the summer of 2015 and helped me purchase a large lakefront property. Ross`s counsel on negotiation strategies and his dedicated service throughout the process played a key role in the successful outcome of this transaction"- CEO of Major Canadian Corporation- Name withheld for privacy reasons (Muskoka District)

Buyer Agent-First time cottage purchase by young family

"Working with Ross turned out to be the best decision we made in buying our dream cottage. Ross was very professional and gave us lots of advice on how to buy the right cottage by comparing it with several other properties in the market. We found this beautiful Lake Simcoe cottage near Orillia with a sunset view but the price was too high for our budget, We told Ross we really loved the place and hoped he could walk the extra mile in negotiating our offer to the owner. I told my wife we should not get our hopes up too high because our offer might not be pleasing to the owner, To our surprise, Ross did something that we will never forget as he was able to convince the owner to reduce the purchase price of the cottage and helped us secure our dream cottage. He did this by convincing the owner to sell it to a young family like us with small kids. This year was the best summer we have and that's because of Ross. I already recommended him to my friends and would love to work with him again. Thank you Ross for the outstanding job in helping us purchasing our dream cottage. Please feel free to contact me as a reference for Ross."-Marc & Marilene Antonio (123 Creighton Road- Lake Simcoe | Marc # 416 305 0663)
