As former clients of Joe vermaire, my wife and I have just recently moved about 14 hours Northwest of Toronto. Joe took the time to refer us to a local Royal LePage Team Realty representative by the name of Wendy Siltamaki. We could not have been happier with Wendy or the home she had found us after having probably seen 5 or 6 homes.
Joe, having set all this up for us also did not take commission for the referral! Something he did not need to do.
We found Joe to be very respectful, polite, knowledgeable and accommodating to our needs.
We bought our lake front property through Joe Vermaire in 2018. His services were top notch and very professional! Since we were relocating to Aylen Lake as year round residents, Joe was extremely helpful in providing information about the area since he also lives on the lake. I highly recommend Joe and would use his services again in a heartbeat. Thank you Joe Vermaire !
My wife and I recently (late 2019) purchased a cottage/waterfront property – Spectacle Lake area. The listing agent was Joe Vermaire. We originally met with Joe on an early Sunday morning..and were immediately impressed with his professionalism, thoroughness and sincerity. We continued to rely upon Joe during our purchase of the property..and he proved time and again to be most helpful and facilitating. We would highly recommend Joe as your next realtor!!

We whole heartedly and without reservation recommend Joe Vermaire for your real estate needs whether you are purchasing or selling your property. Our first encounter with Joe was a semi-emergency. We drove 11 hours from the US to get to our cottage and found that our cell phone had been mysteriously blocked from making calls. We had a very important call we needed to make, but it was 10 PM! With trepidation, we knocked on Joe’s door. Although we were strangers to Joe and his wife Jill, they welcomed us warmly and assured us over and over that if we needed anything we shouldn’t hesitate to let them know.
Joe’s warmth, personal touch, and willingness to help, regardless of how convenient the situation, was invaluable as a realtor and were demonstrated time and time again when we entrusted our cottage to him to sell. Joe knew exactly what type of buyer would be interested in our cottage on Aylen Lake, an amazing place that was so special to our family for 47 years. Character qualities that were displayed consistently and frequently were:
Bill & Barbara Boyes
- Professional and knowledgeable about real estate
- Warmth & willingness to go beyond what is expected of a realtor
- Working even in times of inconvenience
- Insight into people & skill in listening to understand their needs
- Honesty and integrity in word and legal transactions
- Wise counsel and continuous communication through long distance calls, texts, and e-mails

Joe did a stellar job selling our cottage for us! We could not have asked for a more honest, respectful, helpful, knowledgeable realtor. We were blown away by the effort and time he put into serving us and getting our cottage sold. We live in Virginia and he was a God-send, going way beyond what a realtor normally does in getting a property sold. He was quick to respond to our phone calls, texts, and emails and was never pushy or high pressured. We loved that about him! But he was at the same time very proactive on his end and wasted no time in getting the next thing done, whatever that was. He definitely is in an unusually outstanding category when it comes to realtors. We're so grateful he was available to us!

"Joe. Just a note to thank-you for your hard work and diligence for your wishful and hopeful thoughts that we would be the new owners of our beautiful new property and cottage. Can't wait to get in there and and make it ours- a lifelong dream true. You went out of your way for us with boat trips etc. & we truly appreciate it!"

"Our experience with Joe Vermaire was simply outstanding. We were looking to purchase a cottage in a very limited geographical area (South Algonquin/Madawaska Valley). Joe worked with us on a very personal basis and helped us to understand what we really wanted. Joe is knowledgeable in all types of cottages (Water access/Drive to cottages) and most importantly he was always available to answer our many questions with a fast turnaround. Joe would go above and beyond what is required and would provide valuable information. It was his local knowledge of the area and networking that enabled us to purchase our new cottage. We simply could not have done this without him. We would definitely recommend Joe to anyone in the future looking to buy a cottage. Thanks Joe!!!

"Joe listed our boat access cottage which has been in our family for nearly 30 years. He took time to understand our property and what it meant to us, so he could try find the right buyer; and that's just what happened. He sold our cottage at the price we wanted to a family that we believe will enjoy it and care for it like we did. Joe also took both sides of the transaction and handled it so our interests were never compromised in any way. Joe is a caring professional that went above and beyond and made a difficult process seem easy.

"Last fall we purchased our cottage on Aylen Lake and as prospective buyers we found Joe's 'no pressure' approach very appealing.
We live in Kanata and were not familiar with the Aylen Lake/Barry's Bay area. We purchased the cottage via long distance, so there were many phone calls and e-mails exchanged. Joe was always available and promptly responded to our numerous questions.
We cannot emphasize enough the importance of Joe's knowledge of Aylen Lake and surrounding area. He was able to provide us with valuable information pertaining to the lake and the cottage itself, as well as refer us to trades people and utility service we required.
We would highly recommend Joe for all your real estate needs in the area!"

When we decided to sell our family cottage we needed a good real estate agent who was familiar with island properties and owners who lived far away!
Joe was recommended to us by friends. We're very happy with the way Joe handled our sale, he went way beyond what was expected of an agent and was very helpful!!
Thanks again Mr Vermaire!
