How is the market doing in Barrie and Simcoe County these days?

The last time we talked was 2022. “In 2021 and 2022 we went through a time of close to no inventory, which seems like

John Weber Sales Representative First Contact Realty Brokerage – In my family, service has always been a way of life.

When my father opened Webers on Highway # 11, north of Orillia, in 1963, he didn’t just offer delicious, high-quality food. He built a place where people felt welcomed, cared for, and totally at home.

Now, as an award-winning Barrie real estate agent, I help people feel more literally at home. It’s a different kind of business, but it boils down to many of the same things: communication, service, and a whole lot of hard work.
