We have come to understand that this can be one of the most challenging decisions for cottage owners as cottages are generally associated with some of our best lifetime moments and experiences. Having said this, it is extremely important that you choose a Realtor wisely when you are ready to sell.

Each cottage and its property is highly unique and individualized; with certain attributes, characteristics and nuances that contribute to the market value of the property. The Phillips Team prides itself on understanding the numerous aspects of selling your special and unique cottage property. We are professionals that work with our seller clients to ensure that they are well informed of current market information so that an informed and educated decision can be made in terms of a listing price and an ongoing marketing strategy.
