Iris Gardiner

Broker| Past President of The Lakelands Association of REALTORS®, CLHMS

Proud and passionate about all things “Muskoka”, we can truly say that we love what we do. Being engaged in real estate and to be specific, in the business of helping clients buy and sell cottage real estate means that we have to constantly be expanding our knowledge of current market conditions and trends in order to assist our clients. Each and every day is different and that keeps us motivated and curious.

We have spent many years working in this sector and our experience ranges from being personal cottagers to cottage building, cottage renovating, and selling cottage real estate. We like to think of ourselves as “cottage experts”. By focusing intently on our client’s real estate objectives and then providing service based on the highest level of ethical principles, honesty, discretion, and integrity, we can promise a successful outcome. As skilled negotiators with the experience and market knowledge to tackle the most complex real estate transactions, we are able to put our client’s needs first and ensure that they have all the necessary information to make a confident and informed decision. We are also proud to have received the Chairman’s Award from Chestnut Park for outstanding sales success, for most years of our careers.

We like to think that our professionalism, discretion, and attention to detail is also a part of our qualifications for this award. We are blessed to be able to connect and engage with clients of all demographics, the dynamic nature of cottage properties Muskoka has to offer, and the rewarding feeling of satisfaction we have when successfully matching our clients with their perfect Muskoka cottage.
