About Us

Why work with us?

We know Muskoka. Keep in mind that all lakes are not created equal and each have their pros and cons. Some have algae issues, some have restrictions on motors and some have been approved for significant future development which could significantly impact surrounding properties. Larger ones like Joseph, Rosseau and Lake Muskoka have their own special sets of rules. Listings themselves don’t tell the whole story.

We deal with you directly. When you contact us about a property we don’t refer you to a third party or another brokerage.

We tell it like it is. No flowery real estate talk, just the straight goods. Every time. If it’s ugly, we’ll say it’s ugly. If there’s a thousand steps to the water, we’ll tell you right away, not drag you there to discover it.

About The Finchams

Our small family run real estate office is located in downtown Magnetawan in the heart of Ontario cottage country.  We grew up in the Muskoka Parry Sound area, raise our family here and although we love to travel it’s always great to come home.

As you can see we have a very large family so there’s never a dull moment.  Our daily family itinerary would make many shudder! In our spare time, as mentioned, we love to travel, go camping at our property on Mason Lake near Algonquin Park and spend time at our farm just outside of Magnetawan near Lake Cecebe.

Ours is a very laid back real estate office. Our children, grand-children, and pets are welcome and often under foot! When you come in chances are you will be greeted by our newest dog, Niblitz, a little Shorkie-poo, or perhaps Fawkes, a very lively Australian Sheppard. Everyone pitches in so don’t be surprised to find one of our kids behind a desk or answering the phone. If you’re looking for aggressive, high pressure Realtors don’t choose us. It’s just not our style.

The areas we service go from the Gravenhurst region in the south to South River in the north and west to Parry Sound. We cover all aspects of real estate including homes, cottages and commercial property with a special focus on waterfront properties. There’s a huge number of lakes and rivers in our area, each one with their pros and cons so don’t hesitate to contact us. Water quality, enviromental protection, boat traffic and building restrictions are must-know things to look at before buying any waterfront. The more informed you are the better decisions you can make.

If you’re searching for real estate in the Muskoka and Parry Sound areas and have questions just give us a call, we would be happy to help.
