Engel & Völkers marked the launch of its newest real estate shop in Barrie, Ontario with a grand opening held late last month at the brokerage’s new location directly across from City Hall on 63 Collier Street.
License partner Jeremy Brooks will be spearheading the branch’s operations in providing real estate services to Barrie’s home buyers and sellers, as well as to clients in the townships of Simcoe County including Essa-Angus, Springwater, Oro-Medonte, Innisfil, Cookstown, Thornton, and Orillia.

According to Engel & Völkers, it chose Barrie for its newest location as it has proven to be a significant attraction for those who are looking at small-town living that combines urban and cottage country living.
The region’s diverse suite of recreational properties includes waterfront homes, single-family homes, luxury condos, century homes, equestrian properties, and ski-in chalets.
“Barrie has been undergoing a healthy and steady growth phase over the last 10 years,” Brooks stated. “Sellers are seeking higher levels of service and global exposure when putting their properties onto the market, and I knew Engel & Völkers’ values, recognition and resources would give my business the edge it needed to go above and beyond in satisfying my clients’ needs.”
