Your Local Market Specialists

Mark & Susan Benson are Realtors who help you live in more beautiful and thoughtful ways. Inspired by over 1,400 lakes, dramatic granite outcroppings, and endless forest that make up Muskoka, we believe that the combination of location and design can be a powerful force for living well.   We represent properties across the region that consider light, water, materials, natural surroundings and interior decorating. As full time, year round licensed Realtors, our expertise is rooted in a loyal network of buyers and sellers, exceptional marketing and sales experience, finely tuned negotiating skills, along with a solid understanding of the markets we work in.

That’s why 90% of our clients are either repeat or personally introduced to us by people who know and trust us and why we are consistently top performers** at Muskoka's #1 Brokerage.*** 

Do we sound like your kind of people? We'd love to hear from you!
