It is with great pleasure and appreciation for me to recommend the services of Jim Gardiner and the entire Gardiner Team. Jim’s awareness of community by-laws and market related activities extracted incremental value for us when we were finalizing the purchasing agreement.JB – Mirror Lake

Just a short note to thank you for all of your time, and sharing of your extensive knowledge and expertise of “cottage country” in Muskoka. We’d strongly recommend you to anyone else considering the purchase of a property in Muskoka!J & T
The Gardiner Team was attentive to the things that I responded to during the first few showings and promised that they would find exactly what I was looking for. You know what? They were right. It worked out perfect. I just love it, I love the location, the cottage; I love everything.AT – Lake Muskoka (Quoted from Muskoka Showcase)
