About Joanne Hoskins

When I ask my clients what they are looking for in a Muskoka cottage property, their answers vary.  Every buyer has a different wish list for their ideal cottage property.  Cottage buyers are looking for that place where they can get away, relax and enjoy life with their family and friends.

As a Cottage owner looking for a realtor to list their cottage, here are a few things to consider.  Make sure you have a connection with your realtor, so that from start to finish, it will be a good experience.  Hire a local realtor that knows all the area lakes and rivers.  Someone you can connect with and trust, that can offer you their experience and knowledge in waterfront property.  Cottage property is not like your residential home.  Every lake, lot, shoreline and cottage are different and unique.

A few generations ago my family bought their first cottage on Lake Muskoka and began spending summers at the lake. There are countless memories of summers at the family cottage. Those summers instilled in me an enduring love and appreciation of this beautiful area. With it’s sparkling lakes, stunning sunsets, smooth granite shorelines, star lit skies and fresh air, ‘Muskoka, once discovered never forgotten’ describes it perfectly.

I was born and raised in Toronto, and it came as no surprise to my family, when as a young woman, I decided to move to Muskoka, the region that stole my heart as a child. It was the perfect environment and lifestyle to raise my family and I have never regretted the move.  Once you experience it for yourself, you will understand completely how easy the decision was to make.

More than two decades ago I began a career in real estate, working my way through various career levels to become a licensed sales representative, with a comprehensive knowledge of all aspects of the industry. Over the years I have come to know a multitude of the lakes and rivers in the Muskoka, Lake of Bays and the surrounding area intimately, and I can tell you that each waterfront property that I have previewed, shown, sold or listed is distinctly different.

I continue to educate myself in all the changing aspects of the real estate profession and as a full time Realtor, I will be honest, educate, guide and assist you in making wise financial decisions.
