Here is what some of our clients have to say about their experience with Muskoka Getaway.

We engaged Donna Reid over a two-year period to assist us in locating the cottage of our dreams. We were fairly specific in our initial ask (price, location and amenities) and further refined it through advice and suggestions from Donna. From the outset, she took the time to know us and our family, and to[...]

Insightful, Kind, Fair, Dedicated and Professional

Donna Reid’s assistance in the sale of our home and purchase of another was outstanding. Donna was thorough and ensured that our home was marketed in the best light. The sale was quick and flowed without a hitch. Our purchase was far more difficult, as in 2017 lakefront prices in Muskoka soared and inventory was[...]

Riverside Cottage-Lowell

Exceptional knowledge, outstanding service

Having known Sharon and George for many years, I have seen their professionalism time and again. In 2016 I had the privilege of experiencing that as a client, after making the difficult decision to sell our beloved Beaumaris-area century cottage. It did not occur to me to choose anyone else. No-one knows the lakes like[...]

There for us

The search for our perfect camp (cottage to those of you who grew up south of Sudbury) began a couple years ago, and jumped from lake to lake. Then we happened to meet Sharon. Her instant warmth and friendliness was overwhelming. Sharon is the most professional, patient and dedicated real estate person we have encountered.[...]

Professional, Patient and Dedicated

I’d like to give Sharon and George a thumb’s up! My experience in Muskoka has been a long one as my grandfather bought an island on Lake Muskoka in 1950 and started our family tradition of summer on the lake. After that property was sold in the 1960s, I returned to rent a cottage, introducing[...]

Four deals and not a hiccup

Dealing with Sharon & George was a joy. No hassles, no problems. They are very professional agents. They took control of all that mattered. If you are buying or selling I strongly recommend Sharon & George. You will not be disappointed. ~ Bill Harding

Strongly Recommend Sharon and George

We have had the privilege of working with Sharon & George over the past few years in pursuit of finding the ‘right’ property. They are knowledgeable, always patient and the type of people who, if they didn’t know the answer to your question, will happily find it out for you. They conduct themselves with the[...]

A dynamic team

While we have been good friends with George & Sharon for many years, it was only in 2011 that they became our realtors. For two years we searched for a Muskoka property upon which to build our new home/cottage. Sharon and George worked tirelessly and with great patience throughout. They were there for all of[...]

Thank You Sharon and George
