We started our journey to find a cottage in September 2016. We had no experience, very little knowledge and a whole world of questions!
We spoke to several realtors as we planned to investigate different regions and thought that local agents would provide the best resource.
Although we gained information from the realtors we spoke to, we didn’t feel an investment in our family until we met Todd.
Todd had a very different approach and attitude towards finding “the” cottage for us. We started with an exploratory search to understand what types of properties were available and what we would be interested in pursuing.
He wanted to know what we liked, what was important to us, what was a “deal” breaker and what was most desired. I felt that what was important to us, was important to Todd which made a huge difference.
We very quickly decided that we only wanted to work with Todd no matter which region we were looking at for the cottage! We felt comfortable and confident that Todd’s motivation was to fulfill our dreams in finding the best cottage for our family.
What stands out most for me is that Todd listened to understand and to really get to know us. He took the time to know us so well that as we walked in to see any property he instantly knew whether we were going to be interested or not!
Every time we asked anything (and trust me that was frequent): it was never too much trouble and Todd made sure that we had all the answers and anything else that was potentially relevant. He went above and beyond our expectations meeting us for the inspection and closing just to make sure everything went well. We asked for recommendations on many resources: lawyer, insurance, home inspection, contractors and every time Todd gave great recommendations that resulted in good service and reasonable prices.
Bottom line we choose Todd because we were important to him, he cared about us, about what we wanted and finding the property that would bring our family great memories!
Thank you Todd, we value and appreciate you.

My wife and I were fortunate enough to meet Todd at the Cottage show in Toronto this year. As this would be our first cottage we were literally clueless as to what we were up against. Todd was AMAZING. He took the time to ask us as many questions as he felt were important and never once pressured us in any way. He set up a portal on his website for us that automatically populated with properties within our price range and criteria and we were able to narrow down our search without fuss. Todd took the time to investigate each property and was tireless and most of all patient with us … lining up appointments and showing us as many properties as he felt were worth it. Most importantly … he was always quick to point out any negative features we may have overlooked. Without question … we would recommend Todd to anyone looking for real estate in cottage country.

When I first started talking to Todd about the sort of cottage property I was looking for, I was worried that he would struggle to understand my needs and would not be very interested in my budget, but I could not have been more wrong. Despite my wish for something small, off-grid, on a river, away from boats and with some land for less than $200K, Todd went to work and found a number of really interesting possibilities. It took me about a year to really understand what I wanted but Todd stuck with it and showed me many properties. Ultimately, the beautiful retreat in the woods that I bought was found by Todd after I had basically given up looking.
Todd both listens and works hard to find properties and knows his trade well. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone.
Todd Tiffin is one of the best realtors we've worked with. He is not only highly organized, but he also takes the time to understand what his clients are looking for so that your time looking at houses will be well spent. Todd is extremely knowledgeable and will help you make a well-informed decision.

We purchased our family cottage after searching for almost a year. Todd Tiffin represented us from the start. This was our first real estate purchase experience and Todd was always patient and available to answer any questions. Once we determined our wants and needs Todd gave us access to a personalized portal. The portal was updated daily with listings matching our specific parameters. What a time saver! It eliminated the need to surf the web to check all the individual realty websites. Questions to Todd by email or phone were always answered quickly 7 days a week. We made several weekend trips north to view properties and learned a lot from Todd along the way. When we finally found our cottage Todd went above and beyond to ensure the purchase/sale process ran smoothly. The cottage is a substantial commute from our home and Todd offered to facilitate inspections and communicated with our legal and insurance team saving us the additional trips. He truly cares about his clients and their happiness. I would highly recommend Todd Tiffin as a real estate representative.
Todd did a fantastic job helping me to find a cottage in my price range in Haliburton. His attention to detail and understanding my needs, is second to none. He is honest, hard working and keeps pushing to locate properties. His knowledge about properties and lakes was fantastic in educating me about the market, value for money and understanding what each property would take to get it to my standards.
I would recommend Todd to represent you, to achieve your real estate goals.
Although we had never met Todd in person until we actually came up to look at cottages, we had a great experience with him. He was very personable, patient, informative about the area and cottages, and knew his stuff regarding real estate. He was there every time we needed him, especially when it came down to the crunch of the offers, even trying to get an offer in at the last minute, on the side of the road. He did everything in his power to work with us and did as much as he could to get this cottage for us.
He went above and beyond and in the end, our offer was accepted over the others and for that we are grateful. We love our new cottage and would recommend Todd to anyone who needs to find a home or cottage in this area. Even after we moved in, he continued to answer questions to help us with needs we had.
We are living our dream now. Thanks Todd!

First and foremost, I would like to thank you for all the hard work you have done to price, market and sell my family's home. Your attention to detail and Joel's background have given us peace of mind throughout the whole process. When any issue surfaced, you both had the knowledge of how to best handle the situation in the most efficient and professional manner. My crazy work schedule did not seem to bother you as we seamlessly handled all the bumps in the road within the time constraints that were presented.
Joel's experience in the insurance industry was extremely helpful in prepping the house and seeing things that I missed that could have become a bigger issue if not addressed early as we did.
I found working with you both was a pleasure, and a huge burden lifted off my shoulders while going through the steps of the sale from start to finish. My expectations were high when I chose the RE/MAX name to represent the sale of our family home. I can honestly say that if "Mr. RE/MAX" was travelling shotgun with us on this crazy journey we went on, he would have been extremely impressed, as I was.
Thank you again.
My sincerest of thanks and appreciation to Todd & Joel. The task of selling my home was beautifully orchestrated by this dynamic duo. All their detailed preparation prior to listing made for a seamless sale in just sixteen days. I would recommend Todd and Joel, without hesitation, to anyone considering buying or selling property.
We would like to say a huge thank you to Todd and Joel.
We were so fortunate in finding Todd a number of years ago when we were looking to purchase a home in Haliburton.
He was so helpful and patient and he understood exactly what we were looking for!
When we needed to sell in order to move closer to family we definitely knew who to call!
Thank you so much, Todd and Joel.
You made a stressful situation into an exciting Adventure!
