Yesterday we closed on the purchase of our cottage on Stony Lake. So, this 
seems like the right time to tell you how very pleased we have been with the 
service and expertise provided by Mary-Lyn.

From the start she differentiated herself with an organized and helpful 
website, which was especially important to us as we are US residents with a 
bit of a drive between us and the area.

I first reached out to her in February with a series of questions, and we 
first met in early May.  She was helpful during those early days of 
exploring and discovering what we REALLY wanted in a cottage.  I know we 
were literally and figuratively all over the map.   She always honored where 
we were in the buying process yet thru use of her consultative sales skills 
introduced us to new ideas and options to consider. Most importantly, with 
her help we were really able to hone our own thinking on what was right for 

She remained always available, amazingly fast in her turn around times and 
provided invaluable assistance in facilitating completion of other work 
associated with purchasing the property.  We knew we were in capable hands 
throughout the process.

Lastly, we want to emphasize that Mary-Lyn was a delight to be 
with….we just love her!  Her natural enthusiasm and genuine excitement for 
us made the cottage buying process special.

Many thanks to Mary-Lyn for her work

What could have very well become a nightmare for us, instead, was turned into a very efficiently and professionally handled transaction. We knew that our choices were limited in how to sell our property quickly and Mary-Lyn gave us very good advice that we believe was fair to both us and the potential buyers. She ‘went over the top’ in explaining details that would concern both us and the buyers and gave us a very true picture of the market that we needed to know. Every part of the sale was communicated through long distance and she didn’t hesitate to make us feel very comfortable before going to the next step! At any time, Mary-Lyn was available to answer our questions with the obvious comprehension that she has acquired through her dedication to knowing her business! Thank you so much Mary-Lyn!” Very proud of you!

Working with Mary-Lyn was an absolute pleasure. She took on a project that had been an impossible task for about 7 different agents ahead of her over an 8 year span. My gorgeous waterfront lot was way outside the area in which she normally takes listings. But she took pity on me I think, lol, and agreed to take my listing and put all her muster into getting it sold. My elevated waterfront had proved to be the impossible sell for so many agents ahead of her, but I knew instantly it would be different with Mary-Lyn. She was the first agent to actually come out to the property with me to view it, take her own pictures and post proper signage. She then advertised it in abundance and the next thing I knew it was SOLD in under 3 weeks and for very close to my listing price. Just goes to show you the difference between a real estate agent who takes pride in her work and goes above and beyond, and those who really do as little as possible and just hope for an easy, hassle-free paycheck. Thank you Mary-Lyn, you will most certainly be the only agent I consult in the future.

I was blessed to have had Mary-Lyn as my agent. Her work ethic was outstanding. Mary-Lyn is always available day or night always has the answer you’ve been looking for. The contact list she has for her clients is endless. The real estate process can be very stressful but she makes it effortless. Great personality and always a warm smile. I highly recommend Mary-Lyn. Thank you !!

My wife and I were recently looking for a cottage in the Bancroft area. A local Marinaowner referred us to Mary-Lyn as an agent he knew would work hard for us. Mary-Lyn helped us to locate, negotiate and eventually purchase a cottage 5 days after I originally called her. Outstanding! I would like to thank Mary-Lyn for helping us find a cottage that is perfect for us and our family.

Deepest Thanks

Pam and James, new cottage owners!!


This is OUR realtor. She took our needs and limitations, supported our gut instincts, and travelled miles and miles searching for a home that would be our dream come true. Each time she walks into a home, you can rest assured she is highlighting your hard work and always aware of how valuable your memorable moments are. When the moment came to sell and buy our home, we always felt informed of all scenarios and she helped us find confidence in all our decisions. She works rain or shine, night or day, walks dogs or holds babies, whatever needs to be done. We cannot say enough about Mary-lyn Moore at Ball Real Estate!

We are first timers in the cottage world. We wanted to purchase a cottage, fix it up, spend some time, and Sell – on a tight timeline. Mary-Lyn did her research and gave us feedback on investment potential, answered questions along the way, and kept on top of my many phone calls. She prepared a selling strategy that fit for our property. It was important to me that everyone in the process be treated with respect and professionally, she did exactly that. SOLD in Less than a month. We are happy first-time cottage flippers!

In less than a week, our family moves into our new home thanks to Mary-Lyn Moore’s real estate services! She sold our property and helped us to find another. Her professionalism, passion, and work ethic are incredible. She’s always available to lend an ear, give advice, or answer questions throughout the process. We would recommend her services to anyone either selling or buying a property. Thank you Mary-Lyn!

Amazing! Mary-Lyn was referred to us by another realtor and from day one of meeting her we knew she was the perfect fit for us and trust me I am not easy to please lol! She was very professional throughout the whole process she always respected our opinions and most importantly allowed us to be ourselves(especially me).

Even though I may have created some stressful situation for her(just maybe lol)she handled it extremely well and made me feel at ease with whatever situation that arose.

So if your looking for a professional, knowledgeable down to earth realtor you can’t go wrong with Mary-Lyn!!!

Thank you for working your butt off for us. I don’t know why our search in buying an investment property hasn’t worked out yet but it has put us in touch with key people, you are one of those people, and we thank you for being the best realtor for us. The amount of effort and communication you’ve put into helping us is priceless.

Until next time.

My husband and I went for a drive one morning in search of a cottage. We decided to drive until we saw a beautiful area with several lakes to chose from. When we arrived in Apsley we thought we had found an ideal location to begin our search. We walked into the local real estate office where we were greeted by a very warm and friendly Mary-Lyn Moore. After spending a short time describing what we were looking for, she pulled a few local listings in our price range, made a few phone calls and proceeded to tour us around the area to the chosen properties. While driving Mary-Lyn provided us with firsthand knowledge of each lake and the surrounding areas. The information she was able to provide was simply priceless. Over the next week or so we returned to Apsley several times to look at cottage properties with Mary-Lyn and each time we found her to be professional, knowledgeable and simply delightful. She was even able to recommend local businesses for things like dock installation, contracting, wood stove certification, boat purchases/repairs and provided us with information to contact the local utilities. Between visits we maintained close contact with Mary-Lyn through text, email and by phone. Although we live 90 mins away, we always felt she was close by with her quick replies to text messages or email. In the end my husband and I decided to purchase the very first property Mary-Lyn had shown us. We couldn’t be happier with our cottage purchase and we are grateful to Mary-Lyn for all her knowledge and assistance. We’ve found our little piece of paradise and made a friend along the way. Thank you Mary-Lyn Moore for being more than just your average real estate agent.

I can recommend Mary-Lyn unreservedly, she is very knowledgeable, helpful and above all “patient”. She always found new listings for me to look at, and she went out of her way to show some that were in out of the way places.

Did I mention she was patient. She was full of good advice and found all kinds of information on the houses I was interested in.

She definitely went above and beyond what you would expect from a normal real estate agent. I know she will do welland wish her the best in the future. Although I don’t plan on moving again I would use her again in a heartbeat.

All the Best, Ed Woehl

I cannot begin to describe what an amazing experience I had with Mary-Lyn Moore as my Realtor. When I mentioned to Mary-Lyn that I was planning on selling my first home, she helped my overwhelmed mind stay at ease. Mary-Lyn went above and beyond what I would have ever expected in a realtor-client relationship. She assisted in translating all the jargon that is real-estate in order to allow me to understand every step of the process. Additionally, she went out of her way to help me re-stage my house in order for potential buyers to see a potentially forever home while walking through my house in just a few minutes. Mary-Lyn assisted in helping me receive an offer that I could not refuse and I would have been lost without her! If anything, I was a “needy” seller in that, it was my first time ever selling a home and it didn’t matter what questions I had, she answered them with knowledge, integrity and always kept my best interest in mind. Thank you Mary-Lyn and the team at Bowes & Cocks! You absolutely helped me reach a goal in which I felt was almost impossible to achieve. Not only that, Mary-Lyn continues to follow-up and ensures my transition in moving is going smoothly and provides “tips & tricks” in making the whole process easier! I could not be more appreciative! Thank you, You are absolutely the most genuine, candid, and best realtor anyone could ask for! I will most definitely be contacting you for my future needs in the real-estate market!
