Because of the complexity of every transaction and the potential liability associated with any purchase, buyers and sellers are well-advised to be represented by REALTORS® who offer a complete range of services..

Working from their Northbrook office seven days a week, Chris  and Diana can be reached in person, by phone or e-mail. Rapid response to clients is a basic service. In the event that either are out-of-area, each partner, is available to look after inquiries.  It’s all about service.

Marketing: The advertising of current listings in local newspapers, periodicals, the Internet (REALTOR.CA®) and on our website,, is, of course, a basic service of realtors. Tracking the responses is an added feature; clients are informed about the actual success of the advertising of their property.

The Multiple Listing Service, now known as www.REALTOR.CA has already proven its worth to buyers; 90% of Chris’s buyer clients have used it to find cottage properties in the Land o’ Lakes…another invaluable service to buyers and sellers. Chris’s participation in the spring and fall Cottage and Country Homes shows in Toronto and Ottawa allows her to bring her listings directly to the target audience; attendees at these shows are motivated buyers. If they also attend her Power Point seminar presentations, they are better informed about the expectations associated with buying country property. Bringing the product to the consumer is all about service.

Chris meets many potential buyers at her display booth at Toronto’s Spring Cottage Life Show (March 31-April 2nd, 2017) & the Ottawa Cottage Show (March 3-5, 2017).  They also attend her cottage ownership seminar presentations where she shares what she has learned about cottage living since she retired from teaching in 2001.  Let her experiences help you to make better choices in the search for & possible purchase (or sale) of your cottage property.  Missed the spring shows?  Plan to attend Toronto’s Fall Cottage Life Show, October 20-22nd, 2017.  Contact us to find out how to order discount tickets to the Fall show!

Since 2006…FREE use of a 5′ x 8” enclosed cargo trailer to all of Chris’s buyer and seller clients. Use it to de-clutter or move.  Need to take items away?  No problem!  Ask to borrow the 4′ x 8′ open trailer. Our clients are welcome to use either of these to assist with their moves for FREE!  Let Chris get you moving!…….

A final, more personal note… as year-round residents on Kashwakamak Lake, Chris & David remain in touch with local issues of concern to owners of waterfront properties in the Land o’ Lakes. As an elected Board member of the Land o’ Lakes Tourist Association, Chris is deeply committed to the marketing and branding of the entire region. David’s role as Director of Marketing will keep the Winneys involved in the future of the area they have chosen to call home.

Last but never least, helping new and old clients alike to connect with trades and service personnel, and sometimes even the appropriate professional or political contact, is just another regular service. Call (613-336-1737) or e-mail the office ( or to request the assistance you require.
