Ross McLean, Broker

Image of Ross McLean and Lucy McLeanOne of Ross’ earliest memories is arriving in Port Carling by steamer at the age of 3. He knew then, that Muskoka was a special place. As a youth, when working at summer camp, he thumbed his way to Muskoka for days off even though his family was cottaging elsewhere. On graduating from university, Ross worked in sales and marketing for more than 30 years and, as with many in that profession he traveled. Throughout his career he lived or worked on all continents except Antarctica.

His global perspective rates Muskoka as one of the treasures of the world. For Ross, as for many people, Muskoka is a life constant.

With his knowledge of sales and marketing, Ross joined an international consulting firm. It was during that time that his work passion was first published or developed into training programs: Creating Customer Value, Strategic Selling and, Can Change Be As Good As A Rest? Today, his thinking on client service and satisfaction can be read from time to time in local periodicals.

As a former international caliber athlete, Ross is highly focused on what he does. He knows that success comes from preparation and homework and brings this skill and training to his work today. Fact based opinion and insight are invaluable in making good real estate decisions. This understanding has stood him well over the years as he has undertaken 10 major, successful renovations on his own properties.

Blessed with a creative and restless mind, Ross has channeled much of his energy into visualizing the possible. He has a talent for conceptualizing and brings that to bear when thinking about property for his clients and himself. Adding and realizing value is key.

Since the 70’s Ross and his family have been cottagers here, in Muskoka. In that time they have owned and renovated a number of cottages. Today, they are now working on their primary residence on Lake Muskoka.

Over the years friends and colleagues have sought advice and opinion about ‘what could be’ on their homes and cottages. Providing reliable answers and insight has led Ross to homework that ultimately turned into a real estate Broker’s License.

Today Ross’ passion for client service and value finds outlet and satisfaction in helping people make informed decisions about cottage real estate. His clients say that he has helped them make good decisions, negotiated well on their behalf and, added value in understanding the possibilities and limitations of their properties.

Laura Stevens, Sales Representative

Image of Laura StevensAfter a successful and satisfying career selling medical equipment to hospitals across Canada and Ontario a lifestyle change was in order. Through her late 20s and 30s Laura worked for corporate giants like GE, Baxter and Philips selling equipment you would commonly use during a hospital visit. You would be hard pressed to find a hospital in Ontario that hasn’t been a client of hers.

Real Estate has always been a passion and Laura and her husband Derek have owned several homes, cottages, rental units and even a share in a commercial building. With teachers as parents they both spent every summer at the cottage and want the same for their beautiful daughter Paige. Laura’s ability to see past what there “is” to what there “could be” has served her well and her attention to detail means you can rest assured that she will protect and promote your interests above all else.

Laura says her heart lives in Muskoka so she’s not just selling properties, but welcoming friends and newcomers to her community. She loves to explore new areas of this vast region and find the “hidden gems”.

Laura loves to learn about her clients and their lifestyles in order to guide them to a property that will meet all of their needs, not just their wants. She never gives up and will work tirelessly until her clients are satisfied and their cottage dreams have come true.
