Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness

Mary-Lou Milligan and Greg Metcalfe are a dream team. We recently closed the sale of our Dorset cottage of 21 years. We couldn’t have chosen a better team to guide us along from inception of the sale to closing. They made the process pain free & worry free for u s. Their professionalism, kindness and quick responses to our incessant questions and queries eased the parting pains of our much loved hideaway and happy place for our family. Thank you both for a job well done.

Mary-Lou was such a pleasure to have as a realtor. She was determined for us to find our dream cottage… even if it meant trekking through various options in 3 feet of snow for a few kilometers!
Mary-Lou gave the whole experience of looking at cottages a lot of warmth and laughter, while being informative and offering suggestions and ideas. This made for a very enjoyable experience.
We appreciate everything she has done for us, and would recommend her in a heartbeat to friends and family.

Thanks Mary-Lou!

S. Gardner – Toronto

We bought our dream cottage in less than a month, and Mary-Lou made that happen for us. She was extremely responsive, making herself available at our convenience, investigating and replying to our inquiries expediently and offering us a local perspective that gave us confidence and reassurance. We couldn’t have asked for anything more from our real estate agent, and would recommend her in an instant to family and friends!

Working with Mary-Lou in buying our first home was the best choice we could have made. She was always there to help with EVERYTHING, and explained so many things above and beyond! We will always be so grateful to everything Mary-Lou helped us with to get us into our dream home.

Mary-Lou! I honestly can’t say enough about what an amazing realtor you are — Sara, Ally and I feel incredibly lucky that you were our partner in helping us find our dream spot in Dorset, Lake of Bays! From day one you were incredibly responsive to all of our inquiries and requests…and there were many! And because my clock runs 24/7 and I can be a tad on the detail-oriented side, I personally, really appreciated that you made yourself available day and night and would always give me a heads up if you were going to be offline. You also trusted us which was amazing — I know we were flying like lightening — turning the deal around in 4 weeks time from the moment we saw it/submitted an offer/accepted the sign-back/closed the deal! And you are such a warm and thoughtful person to boot! It was such a pleasure to work with you and I look forward to continuing our friendship in the years to come! Cheers,


I would like to thank Greg and Mary-Lou for providing a superb selling experience during the sale of our family cottage. They were very professional and considerate. Selling a cottage that has been in the family for more than 50 years involves many facets and nuances and their guidance-from an accurate valuation-to the listing process -to navigation of the negotiation and closing was structured and professional. Greg was particularly helpful with the details and we appreciated his patience and knowledge. I would highly recommend Greg and Mary-Lou! Many thanks!

Thank you to Mary-Lou Milligan for all of her efforts in finding the right cottage for our family. We had started our search on line then we got in touch with Mary-Lou through the recommendation of a realtor in another area. With her assistance we had viewed many cottages, we were about to give up for the season. We are so happy that Mary-Lou got to know us and what we were looking for. She regularly sent us new listings and some older listings that we had overlooked for one reason or another. Upon her recommendation we viewed one of those we had overlooked and on our drive home we knew it was ‘the’ cottage. Mary-Lou was also very helpful with our negotiations, the deal went through and within weeks we were able to enjoy our new cottage.

Perfect team! Highly recommend

Such a wonderful experience working with MaryLou and Greg to sell our Dorset-area cottage. They kept the stress to a minimum in a quickly changing market. They were the complete team – MaryLou seemed to do the staging, paperwork and principal communications, and Greg was the on-site and practical guy. Warm, professional, and yet fun and laid-back. Their guidance and support were impeccable, and we never once felt we needed to worry or second-guess what could have been a nail-biting sale. Thanks so much!

We would like to thank Greg and Mary-Lou for all the work and care they have put into selling our family cottage. They took the myriad details and unexpected glitches of the process cheerfully in stride, often going above and beyond what real estate agents usually do. It’s hard to imagine many other agents going snorkeling to check if the water pump was working properly, or climbing up to disconnect the internet dish and delivering it all the way to Toronto. Greg and Mary-Lou know cottage country like the back of their hand, and bring a wealth of contacts and resources to help solve any problem that arises. So, when inevitably problems did arise, they helped keep us calm as they took care of matters with efficiency and professionalism. Their staging skills gave our cozy cottage a sleek edge, they were responsive to our inquiries and requests, and they were warm and kind to interact with. In short, we would highly recommend Greg and Mary-Lou to anyone embarking on their own real estate journey.

Thank you Mary Lou and Greg!

We engaged the team of Mary Lou Milligan and Greg Metcalfe of Tall Pines Realty to sell my brother’s property in the Dorset area. Their professional staging and presentation of the property on the market resulted in the property being sold within days and well beyond the asking price. They were amazing and I would recommend them to anyone. On behalf of the Girard family, thank you very much Mary Lou and Greg!
