In 1963, Tom Edwards opened the Real Estate office of J.A. Willoughby & Sons in a one room office in the front of his home on the main street of Bala. A merger with Gibson Brothers later then created the office of Gibson Willoughby, Realtor.
In 1973, Tom elected to become an independent Broker and incorporated a few years after, as Tom Edwards Ltd. In 1986, Tom sold the company to Keith Edwards and Jennifer Meek. For 20 years they ran a successful independent brokerage. In 2007 the decision was made to expand and February of that year saw the opening of the new Royal LePage Lakes of Muskoka Realty Inc. office in Bala.
On January 2, 2018 our office rebranded as the newest office of the established real estate brand, Johnston & Daniel.
With the significant increase in the demand for luxury real estate in the region, Johnston & Daniel offers the service of a boutique brokerage backed by the scale, synergy and credentials of Canada’s largest and oldest real estate company, Royal LePage. Our clients will have access to an intuitive and custom-tailored experience and will benefit from a robust and collaborative real estate network, a hallmark of Johnston & Daniel’s culture.
It is important to understand that the word “luxury” does not speak to a price-point but rather to a level of service and experience – in essence providing both Buyer and Seller with the “luxury real estate experience.” Combined with our continued commitment to community and our ethical business practices, your complete needs will be met.
