I grew up in Toronto and made the move here in 1978 without knowing it I already used real estate as a young person to move forward in investing my money in cottages and homes. As we bought a home with 50 acres and I divided off 10 and sold that to put back into my mortgage. It was my instinct to do that. I have a daughter that does the exact same with investing in real estate and selling to buy another investment.
Back to me, I spend most of my time outside always have, I love to be on the water either boating or sitting on my dock. I love to downhill ski and snowboard, golfing is a passion. In the past I have spent years snowmobiling, riding my motorcycle, cross country skiing, raising kids of course and all that goes with it.
Travelling now is the new item on my list of activities. Of course we all have to work and hard for our money right!!
I spent years working with clients, guests and the public at a major hotel in our area. Now with my real estate career I am still working with customers that turn into my special clients, many have turned into friends.
I live on the water year round on a small lake here in Huntsville which has an Algonquin atmosphere, as there is a speed limit of 12 km so all our lake friends and neighbors kayak, canoe & have stand up paddle boards. Fishing is big here also summer and ice fishing in winter as our lake freezes over.
I have been lucky enough to have a cottage on Skeleton Lake which is a hidden gem and the fifth largest lake in Muskoka. Years later I sold that because we didn't get evening sun so we bought an island, we were out canoeing, saw a sold sign and bought South Kelly Twin Island. Didn't know anything about island life but just went for it. We owned the whole island bought a pontoon boat and had a fabulous time as we had sun all day long and big open views of the whole lake. Ask me about how to be island happy!!
The secret is you can buy or sell and buy more and sell more as long as you move along to a better lifestyle and less stress each time. There is some stress in a reno but so be it.
I have much more to tell you but I will do that in a different format or blog on my site here. All I am saying I have had many experiences which makes me feel confident to say I can help you also with a dream move of yours!! So you can enjoy the Muskoka lifestyle!!
