Our family recently purchased a cottage on Lake of Bays. We had a very positive experience with Jay Richardson and would highly recommend her as an agent. We spent over a year searching for the “perfect cottage” on Lake of Bays. Her patience and easy going disposition is well matched with her knowledge of the lakes. After a few conversations and cottage viewings, Jay quickly assessed our needs and helped us further define our criteria. This was particularly helpful as she saved us a number of trips up from the city for properties that looked good on MLS but would not have been right for us. One particular way that Jay impressed us was that she always went the extra mile in everything she did. A perfect example was our closing. We ran into a number of issues and she was always extremely thorough, organized and diligent in terms of the details and resolving outstanding points. She handled all of the details which was a huge help to us as we were not able to be up at the lake that week. Our family would highly recommend Jay to anybody seeking their own perfect place in the area.

Our cottage find, view and purchase all happened inside of a week. The entire process could not have been easier. Jay and the team were an absolute pleasure to deal with at every stage of the experience.

Not only were they quick to respond with answers to our questions, but were also incredibly helpful when contacts were needed and local errands had to be run.

When living in the GTA and selling a property in the Muskoka area, it’s extremely important to find the right Broker. After doing our own due diligence, we found that person in Jay Richardson. Truly a professional in all aspects of what we required to sell the house. It started with our first meeting which led to a thorough presentation and the best way to show the house and what should be done to stage it properly. It’s not one of my strong points but Jay and her team certainly knew what they were doing. I was extremely pleased with how it turned out and how it was presented to the market. Concerned with the release date to the market, Jay convinced me to get the house out to the market as soon as it was ready. That we did, and numerous appointments to visit were made within 24 hours and we consequently received offers on the property. Selling a house that was so close to us is very stressful.. Your thoughtful approach, your words of comfort in difficult times made it much easier. Your professionalism was truly evident throughout the process and was really appreciated. Thanks again, Jay. We will keep in touch.

We were able to purchase a cottage when we were away on vacation. Jay took care of everything and kept in constant contact.
