Biography

Markʼs familiarity with the Collingwood area began with a love for skiing. As a long-standing member of Craigleith Ski Club since 1976, where his family has spanned three generations, Mark has always embraced the lifestyle and activities that are so readily available in the community. When he and his young family decided to uproot from Toronto and permanently relocate to Collingwood, he made the decision to pursue a new career in real estate, something that would allow him to leverage his business background in an industry that had always fascinated him, while at the same time provide he and his family with a wholesome and balanced lifestyle. When not working with his clients or spending time with his family, Mark can be found on the ski hill, tennis court, or golf course.

Following completion of his BA in Economics from Western University, Mark launched into entrepreneurship as the principal in Surreal Silks, manufacturing and distributing high-end artificial interior plant décor to offices and commercial entities. He subsequently became Owner/General Manager of logistics company Crossdock, honing his skills in this demanding business over the next 12 years. His quest for adventure continued into 2010 when Mark created a fun-filled learning board game geared at teaching kids to read. Grossabulary was launched into toy stores and specialty retail stores in 2011 quickly earning it the “Dr. Toyʼs Best Vacation product of 2012”.

Markʼs varied business experiences and entrepreneurial spirit serve him well in the real estate industry. Committed, and with a strong work ethic, Mark has a need to do things differently and he operates with a level of tenacity that guarantees his clients get exactly what they seek in a new home. This is not a hobby or a part-time interest for Mark and he is fully committed to the real estate business, whether buying or selling.

Mark is in the RE/MAX Hall of Fame, which recognizes RE/MAX top producers and is also a recipient of the RE/MAX Chairmanʼs Award which ranks him among the companyʼs highest producers.

Biography

Maryʼs introduction to the Collingwood area began at the age of 7, when her family would leave the city to spend weekends skiing. As a long-time member of Craigleith Ski Club, she has many fond memories of times spent with friends and family. She loves living in the Collingwood/Blue Mountains area because of the boundless activities and attractions year-round. This lifestyle cemented Maryʼs desire to relocate here many years ago, and any free time is spent outdoors – whether it be land or water. While her first love is skiing, other favourite activities include snowshoeing, hiking, biking, paddle boarding and kayaking.

Graduating from Western University with an Honours BA in Visual Arts and a B.Ed from U of T, Maryʼs previous career teaching high school art and as head of the Arts in several Barrie high schools made it an easy transition to real estate. She loves interacting with people and finds great satisfaction in being able to help them achieve their goals. Maryʼs art background, coupled with her own life experiences, have been an additional factor in her success. She, along with her husband Rip, have been homeowners, landlords, renovators, and they eventually designed and built the home they live in today. Thanks to this diverse background, she can authentically speak to her experiences when helping clients make decisions.

Mary is grateful for the opportunity to have grown up skiing in Collingwood and feels so fortunate that her two daughters have been able to enjoy the same experience. She has really enjoyed watching the area grow and gain in popularity and is so proud to be able to be an active member of this special community.

Mary is in the RE/MAX Hall of Fame, which recognizes RE/MAX top producers and is also a recipient of the RE/MAX Chairmanʼs Award which ranks her among the companyʼs highest producers.

Biography

Cori had been spending summers and winters in the Collingwood area her entire life until she made the somewhat easy decision to make the move permanently to the Blue Mountains to join Mary and Mark at RE/ MAX Four Seasons. As a lifelong member of Craigleith Ski Club, she grew up on the hills on winter weekends with family and friends, and also loved the summers, with all the activities the area has always had to offer. As a result, Cori has roots throughout the region, and when time permits now, you can find her skiing, hiking, golfing or playing tennis.

Prior to real estate, Cori was in the sponsorship marketing industry her entire career, which has included working at a national brewery, working for the Canadian Alpine Ski Team, and most recently, as a Partner and Senior Executive for 12 years at Canadaʼs most prominent sponsorship consulting agency, representing major Canadian clients, with some of the largest sports and entertainment portfolios in the country. This experience has armed Cori with an always-on, client-first approach, combined with a significant results-oriented style.

Thanks to this exciting career, Cori has had the benefit of experiencing some incredible adventures; however, her lifelong love of skiing brought her back to the Collingwood area to live and work full time in real estate, enabling her to share her passion for the area.

It was a timely and inevitable move for her to relocate to her home in the Blue Mountains, where she is currently on a mission to help others in their quest to live happily in this beautiful playground.
