Haliburton Cottage Market


We were fortunate to meet Brandon Nimigon at the Toronto Cottage Life show while we were in the market for a cottage property in the Haliburton region. Brandon was simply amazing. He listened to our needs and as first time cottage "rookies", he helped coach us and narrow down our "wants" and "needs". He has a great deal of patience and let us make decisions while constantly adjusting his property choices to meet our evolving needs. Brandon knows the region extremely well having grown-up in Haliburton and currently living in the area. He wasn't afraid to tell us what areas and lakes to avoid. He also helped broker surveys, inspections, lawyers and other third-party needs based on his extensive local contact network. As we live 3 hours away from Haliburton, it wasn't always easy to coordinate property visits but Brandon always made himself available based on our schedule, often re-arranging his schedule to accommodate our availability. We were able to close the deal and take possession within one month after making our decision.We are more than thrilled with our final choice of cottage in Haliburton and couldn't thank Brandon enough for his guidance.

We would highly recommend Brandon to anyone looking for a great real estate experience - from start to finish.

Karen was referred to us by a friend to help find our dream cottage. We especially liked how knowledgeable she was of the area, and that she took the time to listen to the items that were “must haves” on our wish list. The best advice she gave us was “not to settle”, when we felt we were having to make compromises. Sure enough, we found the perfect property, which she helped us acquire in less than a day. We are loving our new lifestyle in the Haliburton Highlands, and appreciate her help in making it happen.

We were extremely pleased with Karen's service and expertise for the recent sale of our house. From the initial meeting, everything was made clear. Karen was amazingly efficient and proactive in helping things run smoothly behind the scenes for us, as well. When you hire Karen, you are hiring someone dedicated to getting you through the selling process with ease and care. We would recommend her without hesitation.

It was a pleasure to do business with Brandon Nimigon. Brandon is very professional, knowledgeable and efficient. He answered our concerns and helped negotiate a deal that fit our requirements. All aspects of the sale went smoothly. I would highly recommend Brandon Nimigon as a competent agent and would definitely contact Brandon if we require an agent in the future.

Karen Nimigon helped us in finding the perfect home in Haliburton. She was great about making time for us in her schedule to show us house after house, and was very patient when it came to us going back and forth about whether or not we wanted to pursue a particular house. She gave us the advice we needed to make a decision and never made us feel as though we had to hurry or rush when looking at a property, even if we had already seen the property once or twice and just wanted another look. Karen was never afraid to tell us when she thought a house might not be right for us and why that may be. It was very helpful to have Karen looking for houses for us as she continuously found ones that we had had no idea were even for sale, and she always seemed to know what kind of “look” of home we were going for.

When we finally found a house that we loved, she was fantastic in helping us understand what a fair offer was and what would happen if there were multiple offers. Thanks to Karen, we snatched the house up after it had only been on the market for a few days and are now happily moved in.

We would highly recommend Karen Nimigon to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. She is simply the best! Extremely knowledgeable and beyond helpful!

I was blown away by Karen Nimigon’s attention to detail and personalized customer service. Karen “tells it like it is” and from our first meeting, she was clear on what I should do to prep for the sale of my house, and the things I shouldn’t worry about. I had countless showings in a short period of time and before I knew it, I had an offer in hand. I’ve worked with many agents over the years, but Karen was one of the few who I felt truly worked ‘with’ me, she was aware of my bottom line and didn’t once try to push me away from that. Karen has an amazing ability to put her clients at ease and I truly felt she cared about my home, and me. I would recommend Karen to anyone looking for an experienced, dedicated Broker with great connections and strong ties to the community. Karen is awesome!

We were extremely thrilled with the efficiency to detail provided when selling our cottage. The assistance received for staging was great. You also provided the correct advice to ensure the closing details were handled quickly thus giving us piece of mind through the process.

Thanks to you and your team.

In January we had gone to see a property in the Minden Hills area and our dealings was with Brandon Nimigon. He was very instrumental and knowledgeable in every aspect of the purchase of the property. We really appreciated how he helped us step by step pertaining to purchasing and building a cottage. We can't thank you enough for your professionalism, experience and hard work in getting us resources for building. Brandon has made our experience of purchasing and building become a very smooth transition.

I would highly recommend Brandon for all your real estate needs. Again, a huge thank you to Brandon for all your help.

We have started our new journey in a lovely home with your assistance. You worked with us to show us the options to match our budget and location that would best fit our lifestyle. Once we had made our decision, your excellent people skills were used to close the sale and then walk us through the steps required to ensure all tasks were completed. We are very confident that this will be a great home for many years to come.

Thank you for all your assistance and great advice!

We recently had the pleasure of retaining Karen Nimigon in the sale of our cottage and the purchase of a new property. In a tight real estate market, Karen did the impossible! She SOLD our previous cottage over asking AND… negotiated the purchase of our new property for a GREAT price! Karen is a pleasure to work with, she is professional, attentive to details, a great listener and provides solid advice on both purchasing and selling.

Her knowledge of the area and it's varied lakes is without equal. We would not hesitate to recommend Karen for anyone looking at buying or selling in Haliburton!
