Not sure too many people know this but I originally came to Owen Sound in 1973 or 1974(Jury still out on Year) after I was drafted by the Owen Sound North Star Senior Lacrosse team. I enjoyed Owen Sound so much that I decided to stay and work in Owen Sound. For a time at the ripe age of 22, I ran a small boutique retail operation called the Jean Jungle. I met my wife Marylee after I decided to stay so that worked out pretty well. Still together and coming up on our 42 year anniversary.
I loved the Owen Sound area. People on the Street actually said hello to each other. We moved away in 1984 for business reasons. Spent 20 years plus in the London area working and raising our two Daughters Amy and Laura. We came back to the area by choice in 2006. I retired for a time but found retirement wasn’t for me. I need to be in motion. I am certainly in motion now between the Real Estate and our 2-year-old Grandson. He’s awesome. I still spend some time at the Horse farm our daughter runs close to Markdale. I guess you could same we are pretty busy.
Sorry we are experiencing system issues. Please try again.
Where to start.......We have used Wanda's services several times, which, when you meet her, is self-explanatory - you… More will have absolutely no desire to look any further for an agent. She is kind,
uber positive, friendly, informed, dedicated, and helpful beyond words. In any of our transactions, if ever there was a problem (never of her making, of course), she would just fix it for you. She offered to do the final walkthrough for us of the home we were buying, as it was quite a trek for us from where we were moving from. She kept us informed, and when she discovered an issue with one of the appliances, she dealt with it and made it right for us. In the sale of our mother's house, she got it sold within a matter of weeks, whereas it had lingered for several months when listed with another agent. She referred us to services we needed in the clearing out of the home, and even got her hands dirty in the process. She knows EVERYONE, and isn't happy until you are. When we had a problem with a lawyer that handled a transaction, she advocated for us, and her assistance was invaluable. I can't say enough about her dedication to her clients. When we decide to sell our current home, there's no one else we would call.
They don't get any better than Wanda. My partner and I worked with Wanda 6 months.... seeing countless houses, putting… More in more than one offer.... even loosing a house ! Wanda was all smiles the whole way thru and a true professional in every sense. Her market knowledge is second to none, her connections endless and she couldn't possibly be more kind, sweet and patient. I often thought "she must be fed up with me by now".... but nope...not an inch of quit in Wanda. Don't hesitate for a moment if you are considering Wanda for your next buy or sell. You won't be disappointed!
Wanda is an honest and knowledgeable real estate agent. Always helpful and cheerful, she offered her sage advise and expertise… More to get our house sold. I would definitely use her services again in the future. She's awesome!
My partner and I met Wanda through a referral from another brokerage that was out of our initial buying area. We were pleasantly… More surprised to find her as an incredible resource of information in all areas of purchasing a home. She is well connected in the Owen Sound and Georgian Bluffs area (probably more areas too but that was our focus).
Wanda was able to answer questions and set us in the right direction in many areas of our home purchase. From a last-minute firewood order to helping find contractors to securing stable internet connection- you name it, she would find out for us and answer any questions we had. She even trekked our 98-acre property with us, crossing a river in our bare feet because we wanted to "explore" the new area. WOW.. she was a trooper.
Wanda went above and beyond in aiding us through our purchase and has now really raised the bar on what we would want and expect of a Real Estate Agent. We have nothing but incredible things to say about her. Wanda is now considered to be our new friend.
Thank you Wanda!!

I have dealt with Wanda on two separate property sales and both were a dream. She was very sensitive towards my family and… More also very patient with my business partners and I as we purchased a commercial building downtown. She has the communities best interest in mind and knows Owen Sound and its people through and through. You're in great hands with Wanda has your real-estate agent.
Wanda was our realtor when we recently sold our home.
From the initial consultation to final closing and beyond, Wanda instilled… More a calm, effortless, factual, smooth selling experience. She is not only great at strategizing the selling process but is also a keen sales negotiator. Any questions we had were immediately answered.
Wanda listens to her clients and has a very in-depth knowledge of our area. Her advertising techniques are modern and aggressive. She works with a great team that promoted our property to its fullest potential.
As we had designed, supervised the building of and then lived over 40 years in our home, there was lots of emotion and sentimental attachment (weddings, deaths, births, etc) in this sale. Wanda understood the loss we were experiencing and (in her understanding way) helped us through the sense of grief we felt.
Do we recommend her to buyers and sellers? YES WE DO!!! Wanda gives 110% to her clients. She is now a friend!
