About Us

The Lakelands Association of REALTORS® is a not-for-profit professional association representing over 800 local REALTOR® members. Our members serve both residential and commercial real estate in the heart of Ontario’s Cottage Country. The region, known world-wide for its lakes and forests is also home to both larger cities and smaller vibrant communities. It’s home to a thriving tourism industry and a building telecommuter base for the Greater Toronto Area.

Located in Huntsville, we support our REALTOR® members by providing them with the tools to conduct their business with professionalism. Some of these tools are the forms to instigate and complete a real estate transaction, the information system that populates what the public knows as REALTOR.ca, stickers and lockboxes to make the process of buying a selling a property more streamlined.

The Lakelands also advocates for the communities our members live and work in through outreach, and financial donations to shelter-based charities through the Ontario REALTORS Care® program. Each year we distribute funding to help these local organizations continue to support residents in the communities they serve. Since 2005, The Lakelands has donated over $160,124 across it’s jurisdiction. In addition to social advocacy, we work hard alongside our local, provincial and federal governments to make sure that the dream of property ownership is fair and equitable.

Our Mission

To provide the best tools and education to support our members’ success and professionalism.

Our Vision

That The Lakelands REALTORS®’ contribution is valued and considered indispensable in our local communities.
