Dave Leslie and Brandon Stapleton acquire COLDWELL BANKER THOMPSON Real Estate Brokerage.?

This past Monday was a big day for me! I couldn’t be more proud to be the new owner of Coldwell Banker Thompson Real Estate Brokerage along with my good friend and now business partner Brandon Stapleton. The 3rd generation of family ownership! We have the best crew in the industry and so excited for what the future holds for all of us.

A big thank you to everyone for their support, Scott and Brent for all their mentorship and especially my wife Malori who’s always happy to join me on these crazy adventures!

As for the Dave Leslie Team? We’ll be operating in the same manner and excited to continue helping our clients buy and sell real estate in the Muskoka and surrounding area. I’m fortunate to have such amazing teammates: Casey Jagosky and Melissa Munro!!

Looking forward to connecting with all of you ✌️

Real Estate is an ever-changing market; it can be managed with the proper guidance and expert advice. We just ran a quick calculation, and the Muskoka Region is still holding strong; in May 2022, single-family homes (waterfront and non-waterfront combined) sales prices have continued to increase, a 15% increase over last year!
