Tom E. Cooper*
Buyer Representation Agent

As a 20-year resident of the Muskoka Lakes District, I have a deep respect for its lakes, peacefulness and natural surroundings. Muskoka is a truly wonderful place to live, enjoy family, play and work. I know because I live here.

My agency approach is to help you buy real estate with sincerity, honesty, and compassion. The process is about finding the right luxury waterfront home, 3 season cottage or a home in town. It is all about your choice and your family's needs—whether you are trading up, rightsizing, or looking to live in Muskoka full time because you are retired or about to retire.

there is nothing more rewarding than seeing a family fall in love with beautiful Muskoka.

Thank you Tom! I very much appreciate the work you did for us in Canada over the years.

Tom and team acted as Exclusive Tenant Representation Agent for Microsoft Global from coast to coast in Canada and completed many transactions including a 10 year lease for its Head Office in Mississauga, Ontario for 160,000 square feet valued at $55 million and learning Centre in Vancouver for 250,000 rsf valued at $75M.

It has been a great pleasure working with Tom over the last ten years helping us with our Canada portfolio. Tom’s great communication skills, experience and leadership were key components in delivery some very difficult transactions in short timeframes. He understands the “needs of the customer” and works tirelessly until he can define the strategy and execute the transaction. Over the years of working together, Tom’s superior customer service has built a friendship and trust that gave me comfort that he would deliver any commitment. I would recommend Tom to lead any real estate transaction as you will understand quickly why Tom’s variety of experience is far beyond any of his peers.

Tom and team also completed the Eastern Canada Regional Distribution, RDC industrial transaction which won the largest single JLL Industrial Transaction in all of Greater TorontoArea in 2016 - 754,000 rsf valued at $90M.

Working with you as a Buyer Representation Agent, I will help you find and price the property that is right for you. I will negotiate the transaction, help you to acquire financing if needed, find contractors to complete your due diligence, and more to ensure you get the best deal possible on your Muskoka home.
