Ken Mashinter is a Real Estate Agent extraordinaire!
We had looked for over a year to find the right cottage for us. Throughout this time we searched through many listings and dealt with numerous real estate agents selling cottage properties. While we appreciate the listings sent to us by the other agents Ken was the only one that seemed to know and ‘get’ what we were looking for. As buyers you have a checklist of must haves and Ken paid attention to and took note of that.
This August (2012) Ken called us and said he had found the perfect cottage for us. He urged us to act fast because he knew this was the one and didn’t want us to lose it. He was right! As soon as we walked in we knew it was ‘our cottage’. Ken not only knew the details of the cottage he was very knowledgeable about the lakes, towns and neighborhood. This information is invaluable.
Thank you Ken. We are loving our cottage, the lake and the area. Our family has already started to create happy memories. This is just the beginning. If you are looking for a property in the Muskoka’s or Almaguin District, Ken is the perfect real estate agent. He listens and gets to know you so that he can help you find that perfect place that was meant for you.
Professionalism, courteousness and local knowledge
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for helping Bonnie and I find our little peace of heaven. It was certainly our pleasure dealing with you. Your professionalism, courteousness and local knowledge were invaluable. We would have no hesitation in recommending your services to friends and family. Thanks so much and we look forward to seeing you on the lake.
Ken helped simplify things considerably
I wanted to take this opportunity to say how pleased Michelle and I have been with our working relationship with you. We started out last fall with a million questions and not really knowing exactly what we wanted. Unraveling the complexities of cottage real estate has proven to be extremely challenging, but you have been there every step of the way to help simplify things considerably. You are a wealth of knowledge pertaining to both resale cottages and waterfront properties. In some cases, you even prevented problems that we would never have seen coming. The things that we know nothing about can cause us the most difficulty, and expense and your expertise has been invaluable in that regard. We have not yet found our ideal waterfront haven, but I am confident that this will come soon. I will definitely recommend any of my friends and colleagues to you. Many Thanks Ken.
(Trevor and Michelle purchased their ideal property shortly after submitting this letter of thanks in May /2012)
Full of practical information
We can’t believe it’s almost two years since you helped us find our place and a year since we made the move from UK to live here in Muskoka ; and we don’t think we have thanked you properly for everything you did for us. It all began with us viewing your website from UK. It stood out from other Realtors’ websites because it was full of practical information (absolutely invaluable for us, trying to buy a place in Canada while still living in UK ) and humour. We knew right away that you’d be someone we could work with. Then there was the stream of emails ; so many questions from us and prompt, helpful responses from you – explaining things like “shore road allowance ” and many other unfamiliar terms. Next we had two house – hunting trips over a couple of years , when you gave us so much of your time. We don’t know how many miles you drove us or how many hours you put in but it was certainly lots. Finally , it was your swift action that secured the place we now call home. People are amazed to hear we bought a place from the internet without even seeing it. We were able to do that thanks to the trust we had in you. You viewed the place and sent us your own pictures, videos and comments. You organized the home inspection and other checks to make sure we knew exactly what we were taking on. Even once the sale was completed you took the trouble to call on us to see if there was anything you could do to help us settle in and introduced us to Ken Atwood , who did such a wonderful job working on the house before we moved in. Your warm welcome to Muskoka and continued interest have been much appreciated, so, at last, “ Thank you Ken”.
After every showing, Ken called immediately with the comments from the viewers…. He was on top of the sale all along and seemed to know exactly what the buyers were looking for as well as what we, the sellers, expected. Always professional, he did a tremendous job for us!
It was great having you as our Realtor
I would just like to take a moment to let you know how much we have enjoyed your friendship over the years. It was great having you as our Realtor when we first met when coming to Kearney, but we had no idea your professionalism would extend to such a long-term friendship as well. You are a very trustworthy and capable person with good market and local knowledge that goes hand in hand with a pleasing personality. It is no wonder you are successful in your profession. I would not even consider to look anywhere else for another person to look after my real estate needs.
Anne and I wanted to send you a short note to thank you. Your excellent service in finding us our dream home did not go unnoticed. We appreciate your understanding our needs and budget and showing us the properties that matched and exceeded those needs. Our new property on Clam Lake is exactly what we were looking for and more. Please know that we would recommend you anytime and feel free to use us as a reference. It was an absolute pleasure dealing with you.
Dedication and professionalism were exceptional
Your dedication and professionalism were exceptional. Your continued prompt and constant communication were an integral part of the listing and selling process which was important to us. Your website is very user friendly, informative and updated on a regular basis, and we appreciated the change of the photos with the season. First the spots of snow from the spring listing were changed to non-snow photos. We were quite happy to see your initiative in changing those photos, even though the listing was on an inexpensive lot. But to go further, you even changed those when the trees were in full green, that blew us away on top of the continued efforts of keeping us posted on a regular basis. We contacted you as our parents were pleased with your efforts on the sale of their cottage, and since we own the adjoining cottage, we enjoyed reading your periodic newsletter updates about the real estate activity in the region that came in the mail. Both my wife and I highly recommend you as a real estate agent to any prospective buyers or sellers. We are sure this dedication to your clients is appreciated by all who have used you.
Extensive knowledge and experience
My wife and I had been looking for that special piece of property in Muskoka or Parry Sound, upon which we would build our retirement home. You made it happen! It was short notice, multiple offer competition and only a 24 hr window in which to draw up and present our offer. There wasn’t going to be any haggling. It was simply the best offer would win. With your extensive knowledge and experience, your advise was invaluable to our chances of beating out the competition. I’ll never forget the words you spoke to us the very next day… “It’s yours.”
Thanks for making our dream come true!
