As trained professionals with over five decades of combined success, we know the market inside and out. Selling cottages, homes, condominiums, vacant land and commercial properties is second nature to us. We extend that to you to make your experience easy and rewarding.
We know you’ve done your research on pricing. We’re on top of market analysis reports too. So rest assured, when we quote you the fair market value of your property, we’re not guessing…it’s fact. We don’t “Buy “ listings by giving you an inflated valuation.
Our Buyer referrals come from local, provincial, national…even international contacts, on a regular basis. As a Seller, you will benefit from our contacts.
Our volunteer involvement in organized real estate provides numerous opportunities to associate with other qualified and successful REALTORS®. Additionally, we collaborate with a multitude of thriving out-of-town brokers.
Our sales and marketing methods are recognized and respected among our real estate colleagues, creating greater networking conditions and spirit of cooperation to get your property SOLD.
Vigorous outbound marketing strategies utilizing multiple electronic and print mediums draw potential buyers into the market. Systematic follow-through with interested parties delivers maximum and far-reaching exposure for your property – locally, regionally, nationally and internationally.
You receive home preparation advice so your home’s beauty and character shine through to your best possible advantage. Buyer search criteria trends are important, and change over time. You’ll be on the cutting edge when it’s time to show off your property.
As an objective third party, Buyers are inclined to take heed of our recommendations, increasing the probability of sale.
Buyers are pre-qualified (financially) before they are considered for a showing of your property, all but eliminating false hope.
We’re trained and experienced professional negotiators, with third party status to act as a go-between for you, your Buyer and their Realtor. The results? Satisfaction with every transaction’s conclusion.
And you don’t need to concern yourself with handling the financial and legal details of your transaction. We advise you on the best possible professionals to assist you in bringing the sale transaction to a successful conclusion. This takes the worry out of overwhelming paperwork and legal matters.
We concentrate on delivering the utmost attention and superior service to you and your transaction because our Licensed Personal Assistant handles the administrative support, details, and marketing strategies on our behalf.
We consistently outperform our competitors – well above the local average, in both good or bad markets. Many Realtors working the cottage market sell less than one-third of the properties they list. The Gardiner Team consistently surpasses this performance standard.
Making the choice to work with a competent realtor is one of life’s most important decisions. You can’t afford to leave this process to chance, any more than you would choosing your family doctor, lawyer or other professional.
Bare in mind, this individual works for you , keeps you well informed, advises and counsels you – with your best interests at heart. Trust and confidence in their abilities are a must.

“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!”J & D – Sold on Echo Lake and bought on Lake Muskoka
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.S & D – Muskoka River, Port Sydney
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!K & L – Lake Muskoka
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 AgainS & C – Buck Lake, Huntsville
