Our New Digs!
Welcome to 59 Main Street East Huntsville, Chestnut Park Real Estate
I really cannot say enough about Chestnut Park Real Estate. They are a professional, friendly, and approachable company who truly care about their agents. This support allows us to do what we do best, and that is to deliver a high standard of service to our clients.
When I first joined the company in 2011, even as a “rookie” agent I felt welcomed and supported. Fast-forward 8 years and here we are, celebrating the opening of a new downtown location.
A little about the Chestnut Park Story
Chestnut Park Real Estate Limited, Brokerage was founded in 1990 by Catherine Deluce. Catherine’s extensive background in real estate and her passion to build a leading brokerage has produced a brand known for professionalism, quality, and excellence in service. She was joined shortly afterwards by Chris Kapches who brought a background in law, real estate, and business to the partnership. Chris is currently the President and CEO of Chestnut Park. Their commitment to clients and their leadership of agents formed the foundation of our four pillars of success: trust, integrity, knowledge, and discretion.
The first office was opened in Toronto, Canada with 5 real estate agents. In just over two decades, Chestnut Park’s sales team has grown from 5 to over 300 agents with offices in Toronto, Muskoka, Collingwood, Grey Bruce, and Prince Edward County.
In 2011, our affiliation with Christies International Real Estate was formed, elevating the Chestnut Park brand to the forefront of Ontario’s luxury market. Through our exclusive partnership with CIRE, we provide clients with unparalleled access to the global real estate market, connecting buyers and sellers throughout the world.

When the time came that I was finally okay with selling my home having Kim as the realtor to sell it wasn’t even a question. Kim made the process so easy. Being a brand new Mom at the time and having to work around showings, she knew exactly how much I could handle. Absolutely awesome. Highly recommended.
“Kim is extremely pleasant, personable and professional. She suggested a great strategic plan to sell our home including advertising initiatives and an open house. We had several offers within 12 hours of listing our property, and we were more than happy with the selling price received, which was more than we thought possible. Thank you Kim! We would highly recommend speaking with Kim whether you are selling or purchasing a home.”
“We had our eye on the cottage of our dreams and Kim guided us through the process with ease. She is professional, considerate and her abilities to negotiate and represent our wishes were outstanding. Thank you Kim for a seamless process that put us here on Lake of Bays today.”
“From our first meeting with Kim, we felt the true spirit of what life in Muskoka should be, warm, friendly and sincere. Not once did we ever question that she did not have our very best interests as the focus of her intentions. Her honesty coupled with her experience was instrumental in steering us away from potentially overpaying and she was not shy about highlighting the negative aspects of certain properties in addition to the positive ones. The extra things that she did to follow through to make our transition into our new home an easy one were beyond what anyone could have expected. Thank you Kim!”
“We first met Kim when we went to view a cottage she was listing. She was so warm and kind and extremely knowledgeable about the area, having grown up there, that we decided to ask her to represent us as our agent in our search for the perfect cottage. We had a long list of needs and wants and Kim was always patient and understanding, showing us perfectly curated lists of properties she thought might suit us. She is thoughtful and hard-working and was always available to answer any questions or concerns we had. I am happy to say that we found our dream cottage, one that we have been thoroughly enjoying, and we couldn’t have done it without Kim! We would recommend her without hesitation!”
“After selling 5 homes over our lifetime, we can say that having Kim as our Realty Agent was by far, the best experience we have had. She exceeded our expectations, with her great personality and her ability to listen to our ideas and concerns (excellent interpersonal skills). She puts her client’s interest first and is a very honest and straight forward person (a high level of integrity). Her communication skills, knowledge and overall abilities in sales and negotiations with prospective purchasers was first rate. Kim was a pleasure to deal with at all times; which made what is usually a stressful experience into a positive one. Thank you Kim.”
“Thank you Kim for helping us with the purchase of our cottage! Your unique combination of warmth and professionalism was very much appreciated. We felt well so well informed and supported at every step of the process! I will recommend Kim to everyone looking to buy a home or cottage!”
“We were looking for a cottage for about a year and switched our focus to the Huntsville and surrounding areas and come across a listing that she had advertised. Upon talking with Kim about the property we knew we had someone we could work with. She was very patient answering all of our questions and found the professionals to do our home inspection and thanks to Kim we found our dream cottage.”
“I highly recommend Kim to anyone interested in buying or selling a home/cottage etc. She went beyond our expectations in regard to her knowledge of real estate, her professionalism, her communication skills as well as her social skills and her caring and responsible attitude toward her clients. We couldn’t have been happier or been better served by a realtor!”
“My husband and I were looking for some water front property in Muskoka to build our retirement home on. The sales rep that we called couldn’t take us that day, so he passed us over to Kim and told us she was very good and would take care of us. Well he was right. Kim was so pleasant, professional, and knowledgable about the area, and really listened to what we were looking for. She even took my parents out to see one of the listings on our behalf as they live up there and we couldn’t make it that day. When they called us that night they said “what a beautiful girl and so helpful”. We ended up getting a lovely lot on the Severn River to build our forever home on. What a nice way to start the next chapter of our lives living in beautiful Muskoka! Thanks so much Kim.”
“Thank-you to Kim O’Grady for representing us in the successful sale of our Huntsville home. We set high standards for service, but Kim sets her own bar even higher. Her positive outlook, professional competency, responsive communication, attention to detail and personable sense of humour make her fun to do business with while getting the job done. We were impressed with the comprehensive marketing strategies employed. It’s been a pleasure, Kim! We’d stand on corners handing out your business cards any day!”
“We first met Kim O’ Grady in the fall of 2011 when our cottage search first began, she was incredibly patient and knowledgeable throughout our nine month search. She answered our phone calls and emails promptly and provided us with excellent expertise regarding both the Huntsville area and the properties we viewed.”
“We would like to take this opportunity to thank Kim O’Grady for the time she spent assisting and advising us on the properties in the Muskoka’s. Her extensive knowledge was extremely useful and resulted with a purchase in the town of Bracebridge. We would gladly recommend Kim for future referrals.”
“Kim was a tremendous help to us as we searched for our new cottage. She took time to listen and understand what we were looking for – and she found us a place we love. Her enthusiastic attitude and thorough professionalism made working with her a pleasure. We highly recommend Kim to anyone looking for a new home or cottage, or selling their existing property.”
“Matt and I want to extend our thank you once again. You helped is find a house, and now it is our home. We want to thank you for helping us find a home so we are able to raise our bundle of joy in safely and happily in. “
“Kim was professional, extremely knowledgeable and extremely helpful in finding us the cottage we had always wanted. We highly recommend her to assist you with any of your real estate needs.”
