Words of Appreciation

“Thank you for the memorable sales and closing experience of finding the cottage of our dreams. A perfect fit for our needs.”

I & E – Lake Muskoka cottage buyers

“Jim and Iris Gardiner were both amazing to deal with. A truly professional team. They shared a great deal of knowledge with us and really shed important light regarding potential Island Cottage ownership – all the pros and cons. Not only did they sell our existing cottage in 24 hours for much higher than our asking price they helped us find our new slice of paradise on Lake Muskoka in a very tight market. We are thrilled with our new cottage and love being on Eilean Gowan Island! We would highly recommend either Jim or Iris for any of your Real Estate needs!”

Mike Taylor was a great find for us. Mike was accessible and flexible with showings, visits, the house inspection and all of the steps involved in closing a sale. Following our closing Mike has continued to be a valuable source of information providing us with contacts for insurance, plumbing and electricians among other things.

Jim did me a favor 20 years ago and I wanted to return the favor – I approached him and Iris at the cottage show and, even though I already had a real estate agent, he recommended a cottage property that I purchased and enjoyed for those 20 years. I therefore, tracked him down and had him be our agent in selling that property. Our priority was to find new owners that would be friendly and fit in well with the neighbors and Jim and Iris found the perfect couple Jim and Iris made the entire sale most enjoyable. The experience was so smooth and enjoyable that the sellers, the buyers and the real estate agents all got together for supper the following summer at our old cottage!

As first time cottage buyers but no strangers to purchasing property, we were fortunate to find Mike Taylor. We purchased through him in 2016 and would gladly again. Honest, great local knowledge and mindful of the nuances of financing, our experience with this agent was golden. Hardworking and always available, Mike made our experience of this purchase so much easier. A great job and comes with the highest recommendation” Thank you Again

S & C – Buck Lake, Huntsville

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.

We worked with Mike on our recent cottage sale and purchase and we could not have picked a better agent. He is knowledgeable, professional, and listened to our needs. He made the most of each of our visits to see cottages and gave us plenty of options that all fit within our cottage “wants”. We would not hesitate to recommend Mike to prospective clients.

B & N – Horn Lake, Almaguin

Mike was an absolute pleasure to work with. We met Mike at the Home Show and he was the only Agent out of 5 to follow up. He sent a friendly hello email a few days later with list of potential properties that we had inquired about. Listened to our wants and needs and provided us with options that made sense. The first agent that didn’t make us feel pressured and wasn’t pushy. A great negotiator and an agent we would highly recommend and will be our first choice on our next purchase.

Just want to tell you that you did a fine job for me on the cottage sale on Lake Muskoka. The sale has removed a huge load from my shoulders. Iris, just a note to thank you again. Money is in the bank!!!!!!

BJ – Lake Muskoka

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.

Thank you so much to your wonderful team for all your assistance and guidance in selling my home and purchasing my new home! Your professionalism and understanding was much appreciated.

I have worked with the Gardiner Team for seven years and have found them to be knowledgeable and caring.  They were able to help me through a difficult severance process and I have relied on them ever since for their keen insight in the processes of buying, planning and building on Muskoka properties.

DG – Builder of Fine Cottages

I will admit that we were not the easiest clients to please. Because of the Gardiner Team’s extensive real estate knowledge and years in the community, they were able to find us just the right property, within our budget. We could not be happier. They have continued to help us settle in, by referring trades, stores and services that have helped make the transition more enjoyable.

J & S T – Town of Bracebridge

We have had a reasonable amount of experience in buying real estate and we have never met a team with such accomplished listeners. They thoroughly understood our needs and desires.  We put our total faith in their professionalism and we were rewarded in every way.

BB – Lake Joseph

Having spent two years searching across Central Ontario for “just the right cottage”, the Gardiner Team assisted my family in finding the perfect spot on Lake Muskoka. Their patience and knowledge of the market makes me a very satisfied customer and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to my friends and clients.

GJ – Lake Muskoka

I am probably the Gardiner Team’s most meticulous buyer to date and their team satisfied my requests for information very well. They really know their stuff, the properties and the area. I could tell the Team had done their research.  I am also extremely happy with and trust their judgement with their recommendations for tradespeople, which every cottage owner will need. I have nothing but good things to say about the Gardiner Team!

JW – Lake Joseph

We love our cottage, which we would not have found had it not been for their tremendous patience, guidance and direction.  The entire Gardiner Team are highly recommended and we have mentioned them during conversations with all of our friends as examples of integrity, honesty, hard work, passion.
