So appreciative of the help Kim gave us finding the perfect cottage for our family! Her knowledge of the area, finding the best properties that met our needs and answering all our questions made it a great experience finding a property that we will enjoy for many years to come!
We have gone through the process of purchasing 3 homes in the Huntsville area with Kim, and would absolutely recommend her !! We truly appreciated Kim’s patience, honesty and professionalism. Kim went above and beyond our expectations, steering us in the right direction, quelling our nerves and frustrations, and offering and providing assistance and suggestions when we needed it. Kim’s warm and friendly personality made it a pleasure to work with her !!
We would definitely recommend Kim to anyone who is looking for a realtor. She is the best. Had a wonderful experience with her when we purchased our house in 2017. Kim is a consummate professional.
Kim was patient, encouraging and knowledgeable throughout our long search for the right cottage in Huntsville. Once we found what we were looking for, she was on the ball during the purchase process, helping negotiate the sharing of the unexpected cost of immediate septic replacement that got flagged during the home inspection. Then she was able to suggest numerous reputable suppliers to consider for our reno, which was incredibly helpful and helped us hit the ground running. Thanks Kim!
We wanted to take a moment to recognize Kim O’Grady for her skill, affability and sensitivity to our needs in two recent real estate transactions in #Muskoka. First, in helping us find a new home that reflects our needs and personalities, and then in the negotiation and sale of Carrie’s home. Kim is wonderfully talented, approachable and professional, qualities which we, and the buyers, clearly appreciated. We would highly recommend Kim to anyone seeking an attentive, personable, results-focused real estate agent in Muskoka.
Working with Kim O’ Grady to locate our dream cottage in Muskoka was a wonderful experience, and we strongly recommend Kim to anyone either searching or selling in Muskoka. Kim’s real estate knowledge, lived knowledge of and appreciation for the Muskoka region, warm, personable manner, genuine concern for the best interests of her clients and high level of personal integrity reassured us we were in the best possible hands. Searching at a competitive price point in a competitive market can be challenging, but Kim helped us keep the faith, and avoid purchasing the wrong place. She supported us at every step of the process, and helped us locate our dream place. We could not have done it without Kim’s help, and could not be more grateful — thank you Kim!!
Thank you Kim O’Grady for helping us close our first cottage. It was perfect for our young family. She knows her stuff, responds quickly and she is always there for you. If you’re looking for a cottage or home in the Huntsville, Muskoka area, I will contact her for sure!
We highly recommend Kim without any reservations! She provided excellent service in search of us looking to buy a house for a rental property.
Our experience began with Kim 4 years ago. She sat down with us and talked about the current market in the Muskoka area. Based on our budget, Kim provided ideas on properties that might fit our wants/needs and what type of home we might expect to find. We definitely tested Kim’s knowledge about local properties, and were never disappointed with her responses.
Most important to us, Kim was always honest with us about what she thought about each property, was always available and helpful, and we always felt that she truly had our best interests at heart. Even after closing our first house, Kim never forgot about us. She cheerfully would send us emails and would recommend properties that might be a good investment for us. Once again, we used Kim to purchase our second investment property. Her hard work and perseverance made it stress free.
In the future, if we ever decide to buy again, we will definitely use Kim to both sell or find us a new property.
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.”
