Rick was referred to us by another realtor when we decided that North Kawartha was the right area for our cottage search. Rick listened to our wish/want/need list. He showed us several properties. This helped both of us to focus in on what we were truly looking for and was patient with our questions. We are first time cottage purchasers and we asked a lot. The property we purchased has surpassed our expectations. Beautiful waterfront, sunset and wide lake views, lovely quiet clean spring fed lake, gorgeous granite outcroppings and yet still close enough to town for all our needs. We had looked for a long time but it took Rick who listened to us to find our lovely retreat. He helped us settle in and gave us a vision of what the cottage could be. And now is. Thank you Rick. Our family loves it.
