Jack is honestly the best real estate agent in Muskoka. We bought our cottage over 20 years ago from him yet he kept in touch and was always helpful when we needed help in zoning, finding an architect, new cottage rules, etc. buying a cottage is different than a house in the city as there are so many details to focus on. Jack is the expert, he lives there and is in the know. My husband and I would not hesitate to recommend him to our friends and family.— J. Szeto-Meiers
Jack is a very knowledgeable real estate agent in his field and has demonstrated his talents and skills time and time again with every experience I have had in dealing with Muskoka real estate. An agent who truly cares about your prospective purchase or sale like Jack does is a rare find. I would highly recommend Jack if you have any real estate interests up in the Muskoka area and need a high quality dependable real estate agent.— Randy Rubenstein
Jack is one of the most experienced agents in Muskoka. His honesty and knowledge of the area will keep buyers from purchasing a property that he knows would be a mistake for them. He can pretty much provide a cottage inspection for you while walking a property and can point out issues that a purchaser may not have even thought about. He is realistic about market conditions and works hard to put together deals that both the purchaser and vendor can feel happy about. Highly recommended. Thanks Jack!— Bruce Macdonald
We were referred to Jack by our close friends who had worked with him to buy their cottage on Lake Rosseau. Jack worked with us patiently for several years until we found our perfect island on Lake Rosseau this summer. He is honest, has a vast knowledge of Muskoka, and is passionate about helping his clients find their perfect retreat. I have worked with many agents over the years, both personally and professionally, Jack is simply outstanding. Both he and Carrie were a pleasure to work with, we highly recommend Jack.— J. Holland
Jack's service was second to none! While the buying process was great and all information was readily available to get us comfortable; it didn't stop once we had a firm deal. Jack continued to provide exceptional service and chase down information for us: everything from barges for moving to an island, marina account set up, parking, best internet to get, the list went on and on! Even after we closed and were settled Jack was checking in to see if we had any questions, how the sunsets were, and if we needed anything. Jack and Carrie were exceptional!— Mike Guidon
I have worked with Jack for over 8 years. We selected Jack to represent us for the sale of our old Cottage and the purchase of a replacement cottage. Jack was selected because of his extensive knowledge of Muskoka properties. We had a challenging sale and Jack worked hard for over three years to help us through the challenge. He never gave up and we are now the proud owners of an Olde Muskoka cottage on Lake Rosseau. We highly recommend Jack for any of your Real Estate needs. He knows the Muskoka market intimately and will always steer you in the right direction.— J. & H. Abell
Just a quick note to say thank you for all of your efforts and help in selling our cottage. In the 14 odd years that we have known and dealt with you, we have always regarded you as being totally professional. We appreciate that you have always indicated that you are prepared to go above and beyond simply being a real estate agent interested in making a sale. We appreciate that over the years you have always been helpful in providing clear, unambiguous advice regarding any number of issues which, we as cottage owners, had to address, and in recommending trades people, legal advisors, etc. You have always been very diligent in keeping us up to date, ...— O. Moysey & K. Patrick
My husband and I are from Toronto and we were looking to purchase our first cottage in Muskoka. Being very ‘green’ to Muskoka, we needed an agent who was experienced and knew the area well. We searched ‘best Muskoka real estate agents’ and Jack’s name was one of the ones that turned up. We ended up contacting the top two agents but only Jack responded promptly. Our experience with Jack and his wife Carrie (also a RE agent) was nothing short of phenomenal. Right from the start, Jack listened intently to what we were looking for and proposed a few cottages that fit our wish list and budget. We were also seriously blown away by the abundance of knowled...— Alice Choi
