“The Clarke Muskoka Team was an integral part to the entire process of designing and building our new coach house. We counted on their expert Realty division to advise us on design and quality of the addition to our property. Then, their Construction team provided guidance with everything from variances, applications and permits, to completion of the project. Team Clarke delivered our coach house with the highest level of customer service. The team was transparent and efficient throughout every step of the way – and when it came to designing/finishing the interior, their attention to detail was second to none.
Thank you for adding the last piece of the puzzle to our residential paradise in Muskoka!”


“The Clarke Muskoka Team was integral to the entire process of building our dream cottage. Their Realty division found us the perfect piece of land, and their Construction team helped us with everything from applications and permits, to breaking ground, and building our cottage, boathouse and tennis pavilion. 
They completed construction on budget more quickly than anticipated, while delivering the highest level of customer service and quality. The team was transparent and efficient throughout every step of the way. They worked seamlessly with our architect and designers to create our vision – and when it came to the overall finishing of the project, their attention to detail was second to none. We rely on Bob for local updates, market conditions and at times potential investment opportunities
Thank you for finding, designing, and building us our piece of paradise Muskoka!”

“We were not typical clients; no one else could be as indecisive and time-consuming as we were. That’s why it is fortunate that Bob Clarke and John Matthews are not typical realtors. Over a period of three years, Bob traipsed through forests, climbed over rocks, and even paddled a canoe, all with the goal of finding us just the right thing. Part psychologist, part marriage counsellor, part psychic, part professor – Bob and John patiently, so very patiently, provided wise advice. Not once did we ever hear exasperation although we deserved it. I am deeply grateful for their expertise and their kindness. They truly live up to Bob’s repeated mantra: “I just want to see you happy”.”

“We want to thank you and your team for the great work you did selling our cottage.

Our initial conversation with you prior to asking you to be our agent made us both feel comfortable selecting you. And while we joked about our expectation that you should be able to sell it within two weeks you actually beat that time frame and we were packing up within a week.

You and your team were open, forthright and available. You gave us common sense advise regarding a couple of issues. 

Thank you for your professionalism.”

“3 and a half years ago we started working with Bob and Marnie. Very early on when we met with them we knew that they would have our best interests at heart.

They were interested in our long term happiness in our purchase and that gave us a huge level of comfort. They asked about our lifestyle. They asked about what we wanted as a family and having such a vast amount of experience they were able to narrow it down for us.

In every property that we looked at we had conversations about what we would change to make it our own and because of their experience in renovation and building that made the process very easy to visualize. It was just such an easy process. We are in there now and loving it and happy with everything that we did.”

“I wanted to take the time thank you personally for all of the effort in both the sale of our properties and the purchase of our new cottage. In every aspect, you exceeded our expectations, and made it a pleasure to work with you. I have worked with many real estate agents and let me tell you that you beat them hands down. Not only were you attentive to our requirements, you were patient with us.

You have a very good grasp of property values. However, where you excelled the most was your extensive knowledge of the local building codes and giving us excellent advice on how to deal with the township on getting our occupancy permits on both the sale and purchase side.

I also wanted to tell you that the true test of our satisfaction is that we have recommended you to several of our friends. We would only do that if we felt comfortable with your knowledge and integrity.”

“For several years my husband Andrew and I had been scouting out a vacation property in the Muskoka Lakes. In the summer of 2011, we had the pleasure of meeting and developing a professional relationship with Bob Clarke. From our first encounter, Bob was clearly a personable and experienced realtor. His friendly demeanour and non pressuring approach helped us finally purchase our dream cottage. Bob listened to our needs and respected our concerns. The word integrity summarizes our opinion of our experiences with Bob. We highly recommend his services.”

Dr. Andrew & Gail

“Working with Bob exceeded any previous experience that we have ever had in real estate. From the moment we connected with Bob we realized that his passion and drive set him apart from any agents that we had used in the past.

Each time we met with Bob we were inspired with his enthusiasm and positive approach to finding us the perfect property. We were impressed with his vast knowledge and his ability to present options to us that we had never even considered.

We came to realize that Bob is a man of his word who has morals, values and ethics. Add to this his engaging sense of humour and you have a real estate agent who you can trust and who is there for you each step of the way.

Not only did we find a great property because of Bob, we also now consider him to be a wonderful friend!”


“Dan and I searched for a long time to find a spot to call home in Muskoka. Once we became serious about purchasing a home we contacted Bob. Bob was so fun, enthusiastic, resourceful, and encouraged us to stick to our gut feelings about spots we looked at. After checking a few things off our list we ended up finding our dream home on Brandy Lake. Dan worked with Bob to complete and seal the deal for our first home purchase here in Muskoka. We have been thrilled with our home and are so thankful for the efforts the Bob Clarke team did to make our transition smooth. Over two and a half years later we consider Bob and Marnie a part of our family. They love checking in to see the projects we have been up to! Marnie has been a great help with design ideas. We look forward to continue to work with them as our family expands and grows in Muskoka.”

“Dear Bob,

Elly and I were thinking of selling our cottage and sought your advice because of your knowledge of Muskoka but more importantly because of your willingness to spend time with us to guide us through our uncertainty..you had others from your office confirm your original advice to us when asked.

After listing with you , you were there through the selling process , even looking after our dog when we were unable. In a word you were GREAT and we would recommend you to all. Thanks for your help.”

“Muskoka is a place that takes the stress completely away. Whatever is going on in life, Muskoka knows how to fix it. That was the exact relationship I had with Clarke construction and real estate team. They took the stress completely out of building a cottage and made it enjoyable and relaxing. They take pride in developing a true understanding of what you want to get out of your Muskoka experience and deliver on it. The Clarke team takes care of you because you become friends through the process and they know that Muskoka needs to stay a stress free paradise.”
