Brent Cartwright started his real estate career in 1998, in The Bahamas, where he ran his own brokerage for 15 years, before packing up his family for a new adventure in Canada. It was not a hard decision to choose Collingwood and The Blue Mountains as a settling spot, particularly because the area offers outdoor activities all year long, even in winter, which appealed greatly to the active and outdoorsy Cartwrights (even if they had not experienced a cold winter!). It has made the move and transition easy.
As a Broker of 19 years, Brent possesses a wealth of experience and knowledge to guide and share with his clients. It is his goal to successfully lead every seller and buyer through, what will be one of their largest transactions in life. Relationship building is Brent's strength and something he enjoys. He is passionate about it and will always put clients first. To quote Brent, “When you close a transaction for a client and they become a friend for life, that is success.”
We have worked with Brent for over 5 years. We met Brent at an open house and he was so personable, taking the time to get to know us and what we were looking for, eventually leading us to purchase an investment property, selling our cottage and purchasing the perfect weekend home. We recommend him to everyone we know and many of our friends have also used him. When looking for a weekend retreat up in Blue Mountain, what sets Brent apart is taking the time to get to know us and his knowledge of the area. Each street or complex can be very different and Brent was able to make the perfect recommendations based on our needs and personality. Never once when working with Brent did we feel like he did not have our best interest at heart, he was always calm, on top of things and most importantly, honest. Our family is very grateful to Brent for helping us find the perfect place to build our family's memories. — Christine Morra
I met Brent over four years ago now. He has assisted me with both purchasing and selling of my homes. I will continue to use him for future endeavours and have highly recommended his services to friends and to family members. Brent has always gone above and beyond his job description in both the buying and selling of properties. He is so easy to work with, patient, a great communicator, and always held my interests as the priority. I value him as my representative and as a friend. Thank you Brett, very grateful for your service! — Lisa Warren
Since first looking to move to the Collingwood/Blue Mountains area 4 years ago, Brent has helped us to buy 2 properties and sell one. He is so knowledgeable and helpful - not just providing insight into the market and property values, but also helping us to settle into a new area. Our last move was a big one, and Brent went out of his way to ensure everything went smoothly, even after closing. He even sourced and met with a heating contractor in our new home for us when we were out of the country! Brent is the best real estate agent we have worked with, and we would not consider working with anyone else. — Janet Crawford
I have had the good fortune of working with Melissa, Michael and Brent in different capacities. Each possesses professionalism, personality, attention to detail, responsiveness, experience, and an ability to close the deal - these are the things that matter and these are the things you can count on from this team. Congratulations on the new venture from Youbou, BC! — Gina Sparrow
Melissa first came to the Collingwood area in her childhood to enjoy the local skiing and she fell in love with it. Seeing the exciting changes in the region, Melissa, with her family, had an opportunity to move to Collingwood in 2003. Starting a career in real estate had always been a goal of Melissa’s and to this career she brings extensive knowledge of the area, guidance and compassion. Both Melissa’s patience and attention to detail allow her clients to feel confident as she helps them navigate the process of buying or selling a property. A working relationship with Melissa ensures support as she is there to help you every step of the way.
My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Melissa Worts over the past two years as we searched for a home in the Collingwood/Blue Mountains area. When we finally found the home that we wanted, Melissa represented us with great professionalism. She is very knowledgeable about the market and helped us navigate the negotiation process. After we purchased, Melissa was very helpful leading up to the close date and with helping us settle in our new home. I would highly recommend Melissa if you are looking to buy or sell a home in the area. — Janice White
Melissa's market research and local knowledge were both thorough and exceptional. All her communications were responsive, calm and strategic. Can recommend working with her without any hesitation. — Ian Heaps
Melissa gave us the support we needed to successfully prepare and sell our condo during turbulent market conditions. Thanks again Melissa for your calming and supportive demeanour. — Barb and Richard Franzke
Working with Melissa was a fabulous experience from start to finish. She provided incredible guidance, exceptional knowledge and real results. We are so grateful to her and all her expertise in helping us find and purchase our happy home. — Jeremy and Rebekah McIntosh
Michael was raised on a farm in Halton County. He has an MBA from the Richard Ivey School of Business and has lived and worked in Tokyo, New York and Toronto. Michael’s background in business and corporate finance give him unique skills that he is able to apply to a variety of real estate transactions. Since joining Royal LePage in 2017, he has assisted clients buy and sell 800 square foot condominiums and 10,000 square foot luxury homes, mixed use commercial buildings and a 100 acre golf course, residential rental investments and large acreages of vacant land, vacation homes and full time homes. With every transaction, no matter how big or small, Michael applies the same high level of diligence and compassion to help clients achieve the best possible result with the least amount of stress. Michael lives in Collingwood’s tree streets with his wife and son and enjoys skiing, biking and boating.
Michael Hays made the process of selling our house stress free. In fact, he actually made it fun! His detailed research at the beginning of the project is a case in point. Behind the scenes, he worked tirelessly on our behalf, consistently communicating the details as they occurred. His calm, professional demeanour, along with expert advice during the negotiations, helped my husband and I make informed decisions that resulted in the sale of our home. I highly recommend Michael Hays. Oh, did I mention that he is patient? — Gail Bascombe
With 1200+ agents in the Georgian Triangle, it's not always easy deciding on a real estate agent. We got to know Mike Hays via a mutual friend who had recommended him. Long before we found ourselves in a buying/selling situation, Mike would provide timely market insights and did not hesitate to provide honest feedback even if it meant deferring a sales opportunity. Having worked with Mike on both the buy & sell side, we highly recommend his services and will definitely be engaging him for any of our future real estate considerations. — Anita Motone and Juwal Steiner
Michael Hays has been my realtor for the past 3 real estate transactions I've had. He has proven time and again, to be a dedicated professional, always reliable and available to communicate with when needed. With this most recent buy/sell…..Mike helped us navigate the process once again, with his easy going demeanour and insightful perspective on all things real estate. Bottom line…. Mike is just a super good guy and I cant recommend him, and the Georgian Blue Group enough! — Colin McArthur
This is the second real estate transaction Michael Hays is involved in with me. Once again I cannot say enough. He is so helpful and kind. Most efficient and always finds the info if not readily on hand. I highly recommend him . Thanks Michael! — Mary W
We worked with Mike Hays on and off over several years, first on a misguided search for a specialty property, and then on a search for a new home for ourselves. Mike was endlessly patient, and took a genuine interest in helping us find the right place. We went back to see the home we eventually purchased five times before submitting an offer, and Mike never tried to pressure us to make the decision. He was always responsive to our enquiries and requests for additional information, and respectful in his dealings with everyone along the way. Mike is a great guy to have on your team, and I would recommend him to anyone without hesitation. — Lynn March
Mike exceeded my expectations throughout the entire selling process. He is a dedicated and knowledgeable professional. I truly felt that Mike was in my corner and helped me navigate each step of the way. Mike has a hands on approach and he went above and beyond to help me sell my home. I could not have asked for a better realtor. — Haein Kim
Michael and the team were professional, responsive and patient through the entire sale process of our family home of 35 years. I was impressed with the team's depth of knowledge in terms of market dynamics as well as their willingness to help with preparing the house to put on the market. I would definitely work with Michael and the team again. Highly recommended! — Chris Gillet
