We met Penny when we walked into her office one day after we'd visited one of her listings and decided that Bear Lake in Dorset was the place for our first cottage.
Not knowing how and where to start, Penny has guided us from then on. She got us in touch with the right people starting from a list of lawyers to use, how to get the building permit, the possible places to get the materials and architects who could provide the blue print for the cottage, site preparation and septic installation, a reliable builder, electrician, and provided us tips on choosing well drillers. She knows the area very well as well as the people involved in a cottage building process. Penny is very knowledgeable, genuine, and professional. Her passion for her profession is beyond excellence.
Thank you for all your assistance Penny.

Thank you for all your help in selling our cottage. You have gone over and above on so many occasions and made the sale so much easier for me. You have treated me like a friend and I cannot thank you enough.

Brad & I would like to thank you for a job well done in the sale of our cottage. Your professionalism and knowledge of the Dorset area, particularly Kawagama Lake, is impressive. Your marketing plan and follow up after each showing exceeded our high expectations. We would, without hesitation, recommend you to our family and friends.

Penny Kiely’s business card says “ Service at it’s BEST “ , and this is so true. I have been grateful to have had the good fortune to deal with Penny in Real Estate over the years. Penny has been involved in Real Estate on Kawagama Lake and the surrounding area for well over 25 years. She has extensive knowledge about the lakes, the area, the history, and the prices. We still own the cottage that was built on the lot that Penny and I discovered while looking for property. The children have enjoyed this experience so much and still do. Later, I dealt with Penny on several occasions and my expectations were met, and more. Penny really is interested in the needs of her clients, she listens, and she works very hard to succeed in providing her clients with excellent service. She is prompt, reliable, honest and has a warm and friendly manner. Just recently, I had been ill, and unable to deal with an issue until the last minute. When I called her and asked for some much needed information from the past, she quickly said “yes, I can do that for you”. It was music to my ears as I was in a “bind” , and needed the information quickly.
Thank You Penny , for all the help over the years,
Sincerely, Beth Donkersley, Kawagama Lake
Thank you very much for getting us a valuable and quick sale of our property. We thoroughly appreciated your helpful advice, guidance and friendly approach. We felt very comfortable dealing with you.

We feel really lucky to have met you and even luckier that you made our Lake of Bays purchase happen for us. We are used to agents in the city who disappear after the agreement is signed so we are so grateful for your full service approach and how much you have helped us above and beyond the acquisition. We have recommended you to friends and to neighbours who are thinking of cottages because of your knowledge, solid service and no-nonsense attitude. Thank you for everything!"
Mike Smerdon and Melissa Pugsley, Lake of Bays
Sandy and I would like to thank you for the rapid and professional manner in which you handled our property transaction.The only problem with it all is that we may not have the opportunity to see you again after 25 years of back and forth meetings!
Thanks again and good luck in the future."
Sandy and Gerry Boswell, Kawagama Lake
"As soon as John and I met with Penny, we were certain we had chosen the right person to help sell our Cottage. I had been on that property since l949 with my parents, so naturally I had dreadful thoughts of selling it. John and I had discussed what we wanted to do all last winter, and there is a time for everything and we felt this was the time to do this. Penny knew exactly what my thoughts were, and knew it was difficult for me, but the transaction went very smooth thanks to them, and all was done in less than 5 weeks. Would we ask Penny to help us sell again if we needed someone, a definite YES, and not only did we sell the cottage, we made a wonderful friend."

“To our mind Penny is one of the finest agents we have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. She is insightful, perceptive and knowledgeable to name just a few of her many qualities. She is a real professional in every sense of the word. After dealing with at least a dozen agents over the course of 5 months and viewing more properties than we can remember, Penny was the only one who understood exactly the kind of property we were looking for. Ultimately, we bought the first property she showed us. Her service went and goes, way beyond the “call of duty” and is second to none. Not only did she show us her own listings but all others she thought might be suitable. In addition she took the time to take us on a tour of the Lake so we would have a concept of its size, islands, shoreline and navigation system etc.
We would and have recommended Penny to friends and acquaintances. All were thrilled with the help, advice and service they received, including the end result! Penny knows the Dorset area like the back of her hand in particular Kawagama Lake. We have never heard of anyone who hasn’t echoed our sentiments."
Mike and Sue, Burlington ON (and Kawagama Lake)
“We were very fortunate to have Penny help us with the purchase of our cottage. We were new comers to Lake of Bays. Penny’s approach was professional and focused. She helped us with our objectives and only showed us properties which met our needs and was excellent in helping us determine fair value while developing an effective bid strategy. She has a wealth of experience and shares it willingly. We highly recommend her.”
Meg & Tom Peddie, Lake of Bays
“We have known Penny for many years, both from a business and from a social perspective.
