In 1999 her purchased a cottage on spectacular Kennedy Point on Lake Muskoka and developed the property with extensive landscaping and the construction of a boathouse. Through his experience in multiple Muskoka building projects, Gord personally understands the perspective of his clients who are either buying Muskoka real estate, selling their cottage, or building a new cottage in Muskoka.

Gord and Tracy helped us to sell an old family cottage in 2018, and then to buy a new cottage before the year was out. We will seek Gord and Tracy’s assistance for any future real estate needs in the Muskoka and adjoining areas.
