I am thrilled to thank and recommend Ragan Zilic as the Real Estate Agent that will find you your dream cottage. We met Ragan last year when she agreed to drive us around the Muskoka region. Our goal was to explore; her goal was to learn about her new clients and tap into their needs, interests, and likes. You could tell her motivation on the first visit was to get to know us so that she could find the ‘right’ cottage for us. I was so impressed with her choices; a rich variety of cottages that would clearly define our likes and dislikes. Her intention was not to sell a cottage that day but to get to know us. How great is that?
One year later, with much enthusiasm and dedication to detail, Ragan helped us purchase a cottage. Ragan has supported us every step of the way; going back to look at the cottage 3 times; participating in the property inspection and asking lots of questions; finding answers to all of our personal questions from the sellers; and finding the necessary purchasing contacts for us - all with enthusiasm and a keen interest in meeting our needs. Thank you, Ragan.

I am writing this to express my deepest gratitude for Mrs. Ragan Zilic. I have had the pleasure of being one of Ragan's recent clients. Her wonderful professionalism, knowledge of the markets, and passion for people distinguishes herself from others.
During our lifetime, we have dealt with numerous Real Estate Agents regarding the buying/selling of homes and businesses. Ragan is arguably the hardest working amongst them. Because of her creativity (ie. video aerial taken from plane), regular communication / dialogue / feedback, and never taking "short cuts" (ie. water/septic test, land configuration, Government assessment, conservation restriction, rural zoning information...); we were able to sell our large property (380 acres) in a timely fashion.
Ragan's excellent project management skills and attention to detail exemplifies her commitment to clients. Because of our large estate, Ragan researched, educated us, and gathered the requisite information/legal documents from the appropriate municipal institutions. As a certified expert, she understood exactly what needed to be done and responded to any of our enquiries within the minute.
Ragan is a fantastic communicator. She explained complicated issues in a patient way; which we understood. She is sensitive to the opinions of others, patient in listening to client's thoughts and understands their point of view. She does not allow personal or other viewpoints to interfere with her assessment of what is best for her clients.
We sincerely thank Ragan for providing world-class advice which lead to an early sale of our residence.

As a child our family always spent two weeks of the summer camping in Algonquin Park. We were able to make a purchase a year ago. It took many trips with our realtor, Ragan Zilic, to finally decide on our purchase. She knew the area and the pros and cons of purchasing a cottage. What we really appreciated was Ragan’s honesty and knowledge.
Professional,positive and knowledgeable.
From the first time we met Ragan we knew we were in the right hands. She listens well,she loves what she does and is excited to make people's dreams come true. We met on a Monday and purchased our property on the following Sunday.
We appreciate her expertise and had a very positive experience.

We have worked with Ragan and she is very quick to react new opportunities on the market. She also arrives prepared and if she does have all the answers she has always made it a priority to get back to us quickly with the information we are looking for. I would recommend working with Ragan she is a pleasure to deal with and has a persuasive but tactful negotiation technique that makes her a true professional.

We have spent the last three years looking for and finally (2014) purchasing a cottage. When we began our search, we met several realtors in various areas of southern Ontario. During this beginning search, we were lucky to come across Ragan when we were contacting one of her associates through a newspaper ad. He was busy, so she was the one who showed us the property. Our expectations were very specific and (at the time) unrealistic. But Ragan listened carefully and helped us narrow down our physical area and our precise needs, as well as giving us time to recognize that our budget had to increase if we wanted to meet these needs. She was always incredibly positive, never making us feel too fussy or negative. She was tireless in her research, always going out to check out a property before we drove up from Toronto to see it. She has many contacts in the field and so she was able to do some deeper research into each lake's natural and cultural past and present. Ragan always had our list of requirements in the back of her mind and never showed us inappropriate properties - they were all worthy of consideration. She always tried to group three or four for each visit so that the long trek felt worthwhile.
When it came to time to purchase the cottage, she offered excellent support and wise advice. She always made us feel as though we could back off at any point - and we appreciated this. She also always made efforts to obtain answers to every question, no matter how trivial it was. And she recommended qualified honest people (her personal contacts) to help us seal the deal (lawyer, inspector, insurance agent, etc.). I have no hesitation in recommending Ragan to anyone considering purchasing a Muskoka or Haliburton cottage. She is terrific!
