Buyer Testimonials.

When choosing a real estate professional, get to know their history!

Below are real customer testimonials and recommendations from previous Parry Sound and Cottage Country real estate clients I have worked with in the past. You can also view my seller testimonials by sellers I have helped sell properties for in Parry Sound, Muskoka and Georgian Bay area. I consider the satisfaction of my clients to be my greatest achievement and take pride in my high volume of repeat business and referrals. Contact me today, I’d love to add you to this growing list!

We just wanted to take a minute to thank you for helping us find the perfect little cottage. We are very happy with the purchase. You spent a lot of time showing us a variety of places over the last few years and always had very insightful information. You are a true “Pro” when it comes to making people feel comfortable and providing timely information as well as seeing the deal thru and putting out all the little fires that occur along the way! Thanks for having our best interests at heart. Thanks for everything you did for us Jim, and, if & when we are ready to upgrade we will definitely use your services again.

PS. Reno’s will be complete in a few weeks so come by for a cold beer and take a look…

Dear Jim,

We just wanted to thank you for all your help and hard work in finding the lot for us on Horseshoe Lake. Your incredible knowledge of the area really narrowed down our search for a property, while your ability to understand our preferences and requirements (perhaps even better than we understood them ourselves!) made the whole process very easy. But perhaps most of all, we appreciate the fact that we never felt pressured to make an offer on a property that you showed us. In fact, your honest appraisal of the value of properties we saw dissuaded us from acting hastily and encouraged us to wait until we found something we really liked at the price we wanted.

Thanks again for your help and your kind offer of further advice when we start to build a cottage.

Dear Jim

Sheila and I wanted to thank you for all your help in finding us the cottage we have been looking for. Your knowledge of the area was a tremendous help. You know the Parry Sound area and the real estate market very, very well. This was a huge asset to us during our search. Most of all we appreciated your no pressure approach to selling. Never did we feel you were pressuring us to look at cottages we did not want to, nor did you pressure us into an offer, you left that all up to us. You were a tremendous help in helping us find a home inspector and lawyer in Parry Sound.

We will recommend you in the future, in fact have already provided your name to a few friends that are starting their cottage search. It was a pleasure working with you!

Thanks once again,

We wanted to thank you for all of the help, advice, and referrals that you have given us before, during and after the purchase of our cottage. It made the transaction as easy as if we were living in the area rather than 300 kms away.

We will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone we encounter looking to buy or sell in the Parry Sound and surrounding area.

Jim is first and foremost a professional. He is well-informed, aboveboard and never pushy, a man of integrity. In the beginning we weren’t sure we were ready to buy. Jim put in the same effort, gave us the same service, treated us with the same respect as if we were his best clients. In the end, he helped us figure out and find just exactly what we were looking for. And he continues to deliver the same level of service after the sale. It’s a real pleasure working with him.

Dear Jim,

I would like to extend my sincere thanks to you with regard to the purchase of my new cottage on Oastler Lake. Being in the real estate business myself, I could have done a lot of the research to find the property alone, but felt that your good judgment would be worth the compensation. I feel that I definitely made the right choice. You not only displayed professionalism, but you have also been their after the sale closed to help out with all the other trivial matters associated with buying a cottage. I would recommend your services to anyone considering buying a home in the Muskoka/Parry Sound area. All the best and continued success.

As a first time cottage purchaser, we were looking for a real estate agent who knew the area well and could provide frank advice and guidance. Jim took the time to get to know us, always willing to show one more property to make sure we knew what we wanted. We were impressed with Jim’s ability to provide the service we asked for; prompt, concise, and straight-forward. There was no sales-pitch pressure. His use of electronic listings via e-mail and the digital camera helped us quickly identify those properties of interest without leaving our home in the city+, which was particularly important in light of our busy work and family commitments. For professional, courteous service, we highly recommend Jim.

When buying a cottage that is a fair distance from your home, it is imperative that you have an agent who is extremely knowledgeable about the area and can avail themselves to your many questions.

Jim Marshall, provided a great deal of knowledge and counsel that resulted in a successful purchase. I have already recommended him to a friend.
