About Rob Mathers – Broker Of Record

I guess you can say was raised in the real estate industry. My dad has served for 35 years in the business, my mom has been in the business for approximately 30 years, my uncle, 40 years, my grandfather 45 years and myself 34 years.

Throughout those years my family has been involved in thousands of real estate transactions, through good times and bad.

One of the greatest things I have learned, is to be a better listener than a talker. Really try hard to find what the needs and wants of buyers and sellers are and help them achieve THEIR goals.

For courteous, professional service please call me.

About Chris MacLeod – Broker

There comes a time for some successful real estate professionals to evaluate how to best deliver the highest level of service, and value to their clients. In 2016 after completing 5 years with RE/MAX Preferred Realty and 7 years in real estate, I undertook this exercise. This reflection and planning for the next 5 years resulted in the creation of Distinctive Homes & Real Estate Ltd. During my time at RE/MAX, I had the opportunity to help many individuals and families sell their current home, and find the perfect property for their needs, style and budget. Thanks to my clients, I was fortunate to consistently achieve outstanding monthly sales awards and earn the prestigious RE/MAX hall of fame award for sales in just 5 short years. I have had the opportunity to work with so many great families, some of whom have honored me with their kind words about my performance. Please take a moment to read about some of their experiences on my testimonials page.

I share these highlights and testimonials not to exult my achievements, but to assure you that I have the skills and experience necessary to ensure a successful real estate transaction for you and your family. Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, be sure to work with an expert in the Windsor and Essex County real estate market. Don’t put your family’s future, or your hard earned money in the hands of an amateur.

The core of my business philosophy is “Exceeding Your Expectations.” As a husband, and father of two sons, I understand how important the decision of selecting a new home is for you and your family. It’s more than just a financial investment; it’s the place where you will enjoy time with family and friends and create timeless memories. As such, my top priority is providing my clients with exceptional customer service, to go above and beyond to make your home buying and selling experience exceptional in every way.

As part owner of Distinctive Homes & Real Estate Ltd I am dedicated to exceptional service from our entire team. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at any time. I am always here to help.

As your partner, my goal is to ensure you and your family are met with the same level of thoughtfulness and care as I would put forward for my family.  I am a proud husband and father to four beautiful children. I know how important providing not just a house is, but a home. I look forward to meeting you and learning more about how I can help you reach your real estate goals!
