Hailey's professionalism and friendly guidance made buying our first home seamless, and as enjoyable as possible. It is a very stressful time and Hailey's patience with us through it all was amazing. She was able to give us her professional opinion, while also steering us toward the right homes, the right prices and gave us as much knowledge as she had about neighborhoods, market trends and other aspects. She answered the millions of questions we had, thoughtfully and when she was not sure of something, she took the time to find the answer, or let us know that we should be contacting others to find out that information (i.e lawyers, our mortgage provider, etc). I would recommend Hailey to anyone looking for a personal experience, and if you are looking for a realtor who is as excited as you are about this purchase, while also handling every aspect with the utmost professionalism. Thanks again Hailey!

Roger Kolbuc played a very important role in the wonderful marketing and selling of our home. Along with his associate, Ross Halloran, they assured us they would move our property by the end of the summer. This proved to be true. Roger has years of experience in the real estate business and appraised our home right on the mark. We were extremely pleased with our Sotheby's experience with Roger on the team. Thank you.

My husband and I had a vacant lot in Muskoka and used Hailey as our Realtor. Hailey goes above and beyond for her clients. Any information or guidance you need she is right there for you and is always very quick with her correspondence. We were so impressed with her work ethic we will most definitely use her again in the area.
Lindsay & Greg M.
Most of my interaction was with Hailey Ward. She was exceptional in her care and attention to detail. Hailey responded quickly to any inquiry or need we had as we went through the process. Roger is a no nonsense kind of guy who is upfront and honest with his opinion. We had many showings with lots of feedback. Selling a home is stressful, but this team made it seamless. Highly recommend them.

My husband and I were very pleased with the process and result of selling our cottage. Vicki was very knowledgable and proactive in the marketing and sale of our cottage, and provided excellent advice from her extensive real estate experience. She was very responsive to our questions and concerns, especially with safety when selling during the pandemic. We expected that selling at this time would be a challenge, but the cottage sold before the start of the summer at a price with which we were happy.
Ross Halloran worked very very hard to sell our house. He is the most amazing person with an excellent work ethic, a total professional who was very dedicated to to us as our agent. He is also a wonderful person and was a delight to deal with. Cannot recommend him highly enough. Ross is a great asset to Sotheby's. Thanks to him and his team. We are really happy with the outcome.

Ross Halloran, was very connected with me through out the time of our listing. He was a great personality to work with and I enjoyed his input and advise.He was able to make the sale of our property happen without to much of a hassle which we were glad of. Thanks to Ross Halloran and Sotheby's.We are still interested in selling our Scenic Cruiser 1956 Bus at a reduced price. It is a classic with lots of history.Roinnie Hawkins and many celebrities enjoyed the many trips riding in the bus with its air ride. As it is on air bags and when riding, its like being on a cloud.If there is anyone there that is interested in a CLASSIC then this is the one for you.Wanda Hawkins

Ross promised us he would sell our house by summers end and he kept his promise. He was at almost every showing and if he couldn't be there his associate was. Ross has an exuberant and enthusiastic approach to his real estate business. We thoroughly enjoyed working with him. Ross's wonderful marketing through the Sotheby's website, glossy brochures and multimedia certainly played a solid role in drawing attention to our property. We have passed out Ross's business cards to several friends who may require a good agent in the future. Bottom line.....it was a real pleasure.

Buyer Testimonial:“We had noticed the cottage we purchased on the Sotheby’s website, were intrigued and contacted Ross. We knew nothing about Muskoka at the time. Ross clearly knew everything about the property and the area, educated us, gracefully answered all of our silly questions and ultimately made us feel comfortable with the area and our decision to buy the property. Ross acted for both buyer and seller in this transaction which turned out to be an advantage as he earned the trust of both parties. As a result, Ross was able to work out any issues that arose to the satisfaction of all. We would recommend Ross to anyone looking to purchase a property in the Muskoka region”. Katherine and David Scott I viewed the sale of my beloved cottage property as the passage of something beautiful in this world from one appreciative caretaker to the next. I was looking for a particular buyer, and I was looking for a particular kind of agent who saw what I saw in the property, and who could effectively communicate that vision. Ross did all of that. He is well organized, thorough, and fair and I highly recommend him.Scott Leckie, CFA-Principal and Portfolio Manager- Takota Asset Management Inc.

Don’t bake cookies! Don’t do open houses! Just hire Ross!
Ross Halloran has exceptional marketing skills, deep market knowledge and unique strategies for selling your property. Ross was able to sell four properties for us where other agents had failed, and sold them all significantly above market pricing. He is the only agent we would even consider using now, and have recommended him to all of our friends! Charles & Maureen Johnson.

Ross and Roger and team did a wonderful job for us from start to finish. I would highly recommend this team for your cottage listing and sale. Thanks guys. Great job.

Ross is an absolute professional. His knowledge of all things related to cottage country is what makes him one of a kind. Our experience from start to finish was perfect. The Sotheby’s team and approach knocked it out of the park. I will continue to recommend Ross to family and friends and I look forward to working with him again. He has perfected his craft and is simply the best.

We were very fortunate to be able to work with Ross Halloran on the purchase of our new cottage. Ross, Maryrose and Hailey went above and beyond in making themselves available to show the property and answer any questions thoroughly and precisely. Anything they didn't have the answers to they investigated for us, including going to the municipality on several occasions to investigate options for renovations and septic additions, well water testing, potential boathouses and additional structures. In addition, Ross was very helpful in communicating between us and the sellers, always ensuring our interactions were received in the way they were intended. Ross did an excellent job in facilitating a very smooth transaction and we felt well guided throughout the entire process. Given we are new to the area, we are grateful to have a relationship with this team in the event we need any assistance going forward.

"After making one of the most difficult decisions in our "house moving" experience....we decided to give Sotheby's a call. We were fortunate enough to meet Ross Halloran to discuss his marketing strategies and get his opinion of our home.. We were impressed from the start. Ross was detailed in expressing his thoughts and knowledge of the business, compassionate when he needed to be and most importantly, he did exactly what he said he was going to do.....sell our home! Which he did in under 4 weeks for the full list price! We would highly recommend Ross for your real estate needs."

We wanted to take a minute to send you a quick note to thank you for all of your help in the purchase of our new country home - we have affectionately named it the “Lake House". We are so happy that you took us to that next house when were looking a month ago - it was just what we were looking for and you did such a great job helping us finalize all of the arrangements. It is not often that you come across someone so dedicated to their profession - you are that person and you made us feel so very comfortable when making the final decision to purchase the home and kept it moving forward until we were successful. We are looking forward to having you join us at the Lake House for dinner once we are settled.
Thank you Ross for being such a great professional and now a new friend".

Ross Halloran of Sotheby`s Realty was my buyer agent in the summer of 2015 and helped me purchase a large lakefront property. Ross`s counsel on negotiation strategies and his dedicated service throughout the process played a key role in the successful outcome of this $3.6mm transaction`

Working with Ross turned out to be the best decision we made in buying our dream cottage. Ross was very professional and gave us lots of advice on how to buy the right cottage by comparing it with several other properties in the market. We found this beautiful Lake Simcoe cottage near Orillia with a sunset view but the price was too high for our budget, We told Ross we really loved the place and hoped he could walk the extra mile in negotiating our offer to the owner. I told my wife we should not get our hopes up too high because our offer might not be pleasing to the owner, To our surprise, Ross did something that we will never forget as he was able to convince the owner to reduce the purchase price of the cottage and helped us secure our dream cottage. He did this by convincing the owner to sell it to a young family like us with small kids. This year was the best summer we have and that's because of Ross. I already recommended him to my friends and would love to work with him again. Thank you Ross for the outstanding job in helping us purchasing our dream cottage. Please feel free to contact me as a reference for Ross . Marc # 416 305 0663Marc & Marilene Antonio

The service from Hailey Ward was absolutely terrific during the purchase of my home this summer. From the start Hailey was able to share her knowledge on the current market and provide me with some good direction. She helped me sort through my wish list and narrow down what I was really looking for next. Throughout the search Hailey was always available to communicate whether it be over the phone, text or email where she was able to answer my many questions promptly and with ease. Hailey is both meticulous and concise, she was never pushy, and always had my best interest in mind. She should pride herself in her communication skills, professionalism and market knowledge – it’s evident that Hailey is committed to seeing her clients be successful and find their dream property. From the initial meeting through to closing Hailey treated me with kindness, professionalism and respect and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!

Maryrose, I am happy that Brian put me in touch with you and Sotheby’s International Realty. I enjoyed working with you and liked the way you got the job done; quickly and professionally. I really felt that you listened to me and knew my needs and acted accordingly. This piece of property still means so much to me and it also makes me feel better to think that the buyers are taking a real liking to it as well. A win win situation in a real trying time! Thank you so much! Pauline

Maryrose and Ross, just wanted to extend a great big thank you for the wonderful experience we had both in selling our cottage but also in renting it out while we waited for the right buyer. Maryrose & Ross, you were both very responsive to phone calls or emails that we had sent with questions or sharing ideas about promoting the sale. You listened to our needs and respected our decision about the way we wanted to close and because of that we will definitely look forward to doing business with you again.CheersKim and Jim Kay

Hailey was a delight to work with in our recent sale of our cottage, being local gave her a better understanding of Parry Sound & Muskoka area. Her recommendations before the professional photo shoot made the social media marketing campaign a huge success. Hailey’s experience, hard work & fresh look on real estate is why we got full price for our cottage with a stress free closing. She has also helped us in a house purchase, we are happy to have Hailey as our realtor.
