We cannot thank Karen and The Knowles/Woolsey Team enough for the smooth process of selling our home. The decision to sell was quick as a relocation was in our near future. As fresh homeowners we were extremely scared. Karen made us feel like family, took us under her wing and outlined all of the steps. Best of all she got us top dollar/more than we imagined we could sell our home for. Thank you, Karen!
You will forever be a part of our story and the beginning of a new chapter for us.
Our family highly recommends Karen and her real estate service.
Thank you and God bless!

Grace Under Pressure: Scott Woolsey wins an all counts!
Over the past seven years I have had the pleasure of working with Scott Woolsey on several real estate deals acting on my behalf both as vendor and purchaser. Throughout the course of each transaction Scott continually demonstrated the highest professional standards. He listened intently to my wishes and concerns. He followed through on all commitments and responsibilities promptly and reliably.
At every turn I felt that Scott had my back, which provided me with a tremendous sense of assurance.
The outcome of each transaction was far better than I could have hoped for!
Many thanks to you, Scott, and to the entire Knowles/Woolsey Team, for looking after me so well.
It has always been a pleasure working with you. I look forward to more opportunities in the future!
Steve, Ursula and the entire Knowles Woolsey team;
My husband and I recently contacted Steve Knowles to sell our home. We are extremely satisfied with the professional service provided by Steve, Ursula and the entire Knowles Woolsey team. The online advertising showed our home beautifully and attracted many interested buyers. Steve, you and the team helped us to achieve our goal to sell our home quickly and receive a purchase offer that was above our expectations.
Thank you for a job well done!
Sincerely Barb and Rick Howse

I had the pleasure of having Scott sell my home. Scott was very knowledgable and ensured I received the highest price I could for my home. Scott worked very hard to help me ready my home for the market and all of his suggestions were fantastic. Scott was always available for any questions I had and responded quickly. He is a pleasure to work with and I will continue to work with him and his team in the future. I recommend Scott to anyone looking for a professional, knowledgable, and caring real estate agent. 5 Stars isn’t enough stars!
We have just sold our home in one day with Scott Woolsey! He was extremely professional, calm and gave us excellent advice . We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him and the team to anyone we know . We have used other agents in the past but this Team comes out on top! We can’t thanky ou enough, Scott.
Raj and Jane Kidnasamy
Scott Woolsey of the Knowles/Woolsey Team has been our agent twice in the past 2 years. Both times I was extremely impressed. As first time homebuyers, my husband and I did not know much about the market or what to keep an eye out for. Scott was very knowledgeable and informative. He helped us to make the right decision for the perfect starter home and also helped us to sell that starter home in less than 48 hours. He supported our decision to move out of Barrie and into our dream home in the country, for an affordable price with a sizable down payment. We couldn’t be happier.
I would highly recommend Scott and the Knowles/Woolsey Team to anyone buying or selling.
Megan & Sean Quinn
Scott Woolsey is an excellent realtor. He made the complicated process of selling our condo very manageable. He was open, honest and very supportive.
My family has benefited from his experience and professionalism. We continue recommend him to others.
Thank you, Scott!
A great group of professionals to deal with. My wife and I saw many homes before we found the right one and this team made the whole process enjoyable and easy for both of us. A special shout out to Scott Woolsey, who went above and beyond our expectations, making us feel like family, rather than just clients, still keeping in contact over a year later. Thank you!
Jessica & Jesse Schulz
I’ve known and employed the services of Karen and Scott Woolsey and Steve Knowles for a number of years. It has always been a pleasure interacting with this delightful family team. Their sound real estate knowledge speaks of experience and offers great advice in both buying and selling. Their positive attitude yields positive returns! You can’t go wrong with this winning team.
I had the pleasure of working with Scott Woolsey this spring when we were purchasing a house in the Barrie area. Scott was great to work with, he very quickly knew what we were looking for and what areas we wanted to be in. He was able to direct and show us to houses that he thought we would be most interested in and would best suit our needs. Scott was always readily available to answer any questions and make arrangements for showings. Scott was able to assist us in narrowing down our choices and focus in on the house that would best meet our needs. We are very happy in our new home and would highly recommend Scott as an agent to anyone, his professionalism and drive made our move that much smoother.
Scott also listed a home that I was managing for a friend and was an excellent listing agent who went above and beyond the duties that one would normally expect from an agent. Scott arranged numerous open houses, set up home staging and arranged from some renovation work to be completed as well as cleaning services. Scott worked very hard to sell this unique home and did so with a great deal of professionalism. Scott was always a pleasure to deal with and I greatly appreciated all the knowledge and assistance he was able to provide. I would recommend Scott as a great agent if you are buying or selling a property
I have worked together with Scott on numerous residential real estate transactions, and have found him to be diligent and knowledgeable with a particular expertise in all aspects of condominium living. Scott’s clients have indicated to me that he was thorough in all areas of their transaction, and was readily available to answer questions and guide them through the entire transaction, even post-closing. I have and will continue to recommend the services of Scott and the rest of the Knowles/Woolsey Team.
Steve, Karen and Scott, I would like to express our most sincere `THANKS` for your professional manner and advice in dealing with the recent sale of our Condominium on the waterfront of Barrie. We appreciate the manner in which you held periodical Open Houses and also the manner in which you kept us informed of potential buyer feedback. We were confident that your advice and feedback would provide us with a satisfactory conclusion to the sale of our condo. We are sure that the new owner is just the perfect fit to enjoy her new home in our condominium environment. I would not hesitate to recommend your sales team to anyone planning on making a move to or from the Barrie area.
Lois & Jon Place
We just wanted to send a quick note to say “Thank You” for all your work not only selling our house but also finding us the perfect home. Your team was extremely professional but more importantly you had a personal approach that made us feel like appreciated clients through the entire process. As first time sellers we could not have done it without your knowledge and direction. We will confidently recommend you and your team to anyone looking to buy or sell. We look forward to dealing with you in the future.
Daniel Jones & Cailin Sweeney
Karen, Steve and Scott are excellent real estate agents and they are extremely knowledgeable about the real estate market. We were very pleased when Karen Woolsey and the team agreed to sell our condo. We want to emphasize the word “Team” because they work so well together. When Karen was not available to respond to our questions, either Steve or Scott immediately contacted us with a response.
We admired Karen’s, Steve’s and Scott’s professionalism and appreciated their dedication and attention to detail. Our condo was priced appropriately and the layout and photos on the feature sheet were very attractive. They placed numerous ads in all of the real estate and local papers and we received an overwhelming number of requests for showings. Karen, Steve and Scott are all very dependable and reliable. They always gave us plenty of notice when showings were scheduled and ensured there was no disruption to our daily routine.
We trusted Karen’s, Steve’s and Scott’s excellent judgement and we knew they were always looking after our best interest. They consulted with us after every showing and shared any comments they received from clients. We quickly received an excellent offer on our condo and they fully explained the real estate process to us. We were very grateful for the huge amount of time and effort they spent on the successful sale of our condo.
We highly recommend Karen, Steve and Scott for their superior knowledge of the real estate industry and would definitely call upon them again.
Glenn & Valerie Phillips
Scott was attentive, efficient, and great to work with. His attention to detail was amazing! We would recommend Scott to all our family and friends.
Scott & Heather Robert
We have had the pleasure of doing business with the Knowles/Woolsey Team -specifically Steve Knowles and Karen and Scott Woolsey. We worked with them on our purchases of two condominiums in downtown Barrie. They were friendly, professional and a great deal of help. As well, Scott assisted in renting one of our units. He found excellent tenants that have just recently renewed their lease. We recommend them highly for your Real Estate needs.
Charlie & Kathryn Talbot
We recently sold our home, purchased a condominium, and rented properties with with the help of the Knowles/Woolsey Team. We found their services professional and their communication excellent. We recommend them to anybody buying or selling real estate
Kristine & Darren Stojic.
“I had the opportunity and good fortune to experience the Woolsey & Knowles magic. A family team that exemplifies team work, professionalism, integrity, and dedicated hard work that results in positive financial outcomes for their clients. I have no hesitation in recommending this talented group of high achievers. I would engage their services again when needed.”
It has been said that moving is the most stressful time of your life. As seniors we have moved several times and have heard that statement over and over and have found it not always to be true. It can be, but does not have to be if you have experts in Real Estate services to assist you. The last few moves “The Knowles/Woolsey Team” have helped us through. They took our hand and created calm and stress free understanding of it all. In fact, it felt like they were family protecting us. They had the patience and kindness to show us that there is “a light at the end of the tunnel” and found us the perfect place to live.
Would we do business with “The Knowles/Woolsey Team” again and recommend their services to others?…Certainly! They have become our extended family of friends.
Roy and Peg Hayward
The service and outcome I received exceeded my expectations. Scott was knowledgeable, attentive and informative in assisting with my transition. The Knowles/Woolsey team went above and beyond while maintaining professionalism, politeness and willingness. I would definitely recommend their services to family and friends.
Jack and I would like to express our sincere thanks in the recent sale of my parent’s home as well as our home. Scott your patience and professionalism was second to none in the sale of both homes. In selling my parent’s home Scott recognized their apprehension as they are both in their 80’s and were finding this move very difficult. Their house sold in a matter of a couple of months and the transition was smooth right from the sale to the lawyers that Scott recommended. Once they were settled we decided to make a move further north to enjoy our retirement. Scott once again had our home listed and sold within one month. Not to mention travelling north with us to research where to relocate!
Scott, a big thanks to you and your team. I would recommend you to anyone searching for a home or looking to sell their home.
Laurie and Jack Barron
Steve, Scott & Karen. We want to thank your team for the terrific and friendly service we received. Our house in Barrie sold quickly for the price we wanted and all the details were taken care of without any speed-bumps. When we move back to Barrie we will enlist your help in finding us the right place again. You have earned a great recommendation and, once again, thank you for everything.
Greg and Elaine Newhouse
My husband and I have been rustling around for the past year trying to decide where we should retire. We have looked at a few places and nothing really came together for us until we visited an Open House, in Barrie Hosted by Steven Knowles and The Knowles/Woolsey Team at the Nautica Condominiums. Once we entered this spectacular condo that was it. Steve was welcoming and very informative of all the features of this unit. When we decided to move forward, Steve was out of town and suggested to call his associate Scott Woolsey. While condos were moving at warp speed we were hoping that this person would be able to “get the job done for us” and lasso one of these speculator units.
When Scott phoned us he already had a good idea of what we were looking for. He was fantastic at zoning in quickly to our needs. Within a phone call he had 4 units ready for us to look at. Scott is articulate with the details of each unit and had an abundance of ideas to share with while he walked through each room with us. He took his time to answer any questions we had, and spent as much time as required with us to make sure we saw everything before leaving. He is also awesome at returning phone calls and email requests within 24 hours. Scott tapped into our needs so well I truly think he could have found us a condo without us being there!
With that being said, my husband and I feel very grateful we found the Knowles/Woosley Team. It’s a relief when you can employ a Real Estate agent to do work so diligently and professionally on your behalf and who also has a warm personality.
Thanks so much Scott you DEFINITELY got the job done for us!
Wendy and Dane McElroy
“Scott, we want to thank you and your team for your expertise and swift assistance with selling our condominium and the purchase of a new one. We didn’t even get time to use the brochures you prepared for the sale!
The day you put it online, I went out of town and two days later when I returned it had been shown a number of times and you had two competitive offers ready for me that evening and it was sold that night. You were the one that found the new location for us and it was what we were looking for. We are very happy in our new home and want to thank you for helping make this happen. You and your team are very professional and know your business. Thank you once again and we wish you much success. “
Jeanne and Mike Macdonald
We are so impressed with the care and thoughtfulness of the entire team in selling our home. With only a couple weeks to sell, we were given every confidence from the team that we would be well taken care of, and we certainly were. Steve Knowles was easy to work with and knowledgeable in the market in Barrie and treated us with excellent professionalism. This is the team that we will be using in all of our future real estate as they showed the time and expert service that we needed. I would like to recommend this team to all in Barrie and area who are looking for a team of experts in the field. Thanks again to the entire team for being a part of our sale. We could not be happier.
In August of 2013 my fiancée, and I set out to start looking for our first home. Given that we were first time home buyers we had MANY questions about the entire Real Estate/Home Buying process. Luckily for us we were able to get connected with The Knowles/Woolsey Team. This was a life saver for us! Our Realtor Scott was not only knowledgeable in answering our many “rookie” questions, but he also made us feel completely at ease. No matter how big, or small are question was Scott had a detailed, and timely response for us. I am happy to report that in September my fiancée, and I took possession of our very first home! We could not be more happy with our home purchase. More importantly we could not have been any more educated, and confident in our final decision. This was all made possible by our Realtor Scott Woolsey from The Knowles/Woolsey Team! They were a first time home buyer’s dream to work with!
Tyler Chapman & Lauren Frith
Scott, I intended to do this before my closing date. In fact I felt like doing this way before you helped me finally find my lovely new home. Please let me explain how I feel about your services:
For me to get the right person to help me find a new home was so important because of my disabilities. You were the perfect match. You very quickly understood what I didn’t need…and you were very astute and aware of what I did need. Your patience with all my questions and worries was amazing. You made me feel completely comfortable in every aspect in completing this deal. We looked at quite a few properties just to get a feel of what was out there. You were so gentlemanly in helping me into these homes and assisting me up and down stairs. I’m sure this kindness only comes from a special kind of person…this says such a lot about you!!! If I were ever asked to recommend a really good Real Estate Agent Scott…. you would be at the top of my list…YOU made the whole experience painless and very positive. I appreciated everything you did for me. I wish you continued success in your endeavours.
Keep up the great service!!
Over the years I have bought and sold a number of homes in Barrie and have used Steve Knowles of the Knowles/Woolsey Team repeatedly. Regardless of market conditions they have always managed to get my target price in a timely manner. The professionalism & teamwork that goes into each purchase or sale is second-to-none, and it doesn’t end there! The team is available as needed to answer questions regarding the market and provide same day answers. The high praise this team continually receives is well deserved in my opinion!
Our experience of selling our waterfront condo and purchasing another house was wonderful. Scott and his whole team at Knowles/Woolsey were approachable, knowledgeable in both condo and house markets, down to earth and professional. We worked seamlessly with the entire team including the stager (Lisa) and we were very pleased with the outcome of our condo sale and ecstatic to find the perfect home, with Scott’s help. We would recommend Scott and the team for anyone needing honest realtors.
Mike and Charmaine Nolan
People told us that we shouldn’t undergo the process of selling and buying a home because we had a toddler and were expecting twins. We were warned it would be too stressful. With the Knowles/Woosley Team as our seller and buyer, the whole process was smooth and successfully completed over five weeks. The open, honest and timely communication between Scott and ourselves ensured that our voices were heard and reflected throughout the transaction. The marketing tools utilized, such as photos, video, information flyers, and social media, generated more than 30 viewings within four days of being on the market. This process ensured a quick sale and short closing date – what we needed and desired. The Knowles/Woosley team accommodated scheduling viewings demonstrating their conscientious approach to the seller and buyer. Once we moved, Scott checked to see how we were settling in, keeping our connection on-going. We would highly recommend the Knowles/Woosley team for your buying and selling needs.
Sue and John D
When relocating to Ontario from BC, we selected the Remax Knowles/Woolsey Team to assist us with purchasing our home. We were so impressed with Scott Woolsey as a realtor, he helped us find the perfect match for our family needs, despite our long list of must haves. Scott’s knowledge of the market, friendly demeanor and honest answers to our many questions made the stressful experience of moving across the country so much easier. Not to mention the fact that he helped us find what we were looking for at $55K under our original budget. We would recommend, without hesitation, the Remax Knowles/Woolsey Team to anyone considering selling, or buying.
Shaun & Megan Freeman
Can’t say enough good things about Scott and his team! I called Scott last minute on a Friday and he met us the very next day to take us through 3 condo units. He has made the whole process very easy and got us a great deal on the unit we ended up buying. Would highly recommend them to anyone.
Richard Monteith & Krista McClelland
After several months of house hunting on our own with no success, we decided it was time to go with a realtor, and we are so happy that we decided to use Scott and the Knowles/Woolsey Team. We had a million questions and Scott was great to answer all of them. He made us feel comfortable through the entire process. The team did a great job advertising our condo (which he sold VERY quickly), and Scott was like a hawk keeping an eye out for houses that went onto the market that met our tastes. We’re so happy with the house we are in now, Scott found us one that met all of our needs and was well within our budget. We have already recommended Scott to a few family and friends and would definitely recommend the Knowles/Woolsey team to anyone looking to buy or sell.
Alex Malmsten & Sarah Adams
The Knowles/Woolsey team know what they’re doing. As motivated sellers trying to leave the province prior to the winter, we were willing to sell our house at a great price for any potential buyer. Scott and Karen had an excellent pulse on the market, convincing us to list at $10,000 more than what we thought would be a fast selling price. They were right. After 2 days on the market, we sold for $15,000 over asking price. We got what we wanted, and more: A fast sale, and more money than we expected. Putting aside the dollars and cents, the whole presentation of our home was absolutely top notch. They are smart enough to leave the photography to the professional photographers. There were videos and still photos taken that ended up on the website that really made our house very desirable looking. There was also a brochure of our home that looked so good, I felt like buying it myself. Was their commission worth it? Well, we made substantially more than if we tried to sell it ourselves, not to mention that we didn’t have to do anything to show the house, or sell its’ virtues. You will not go wrong using their services. This is exactly what you’re looking for when selling your home.
Gary & Jen Burns
We were very pleased with the service we received from Scott Woolsey and his team in the purchase of our home. Scott took the time to get to know exactly what we were looking for and was sure to show us all listings that we were interested in seeing. As he showed us properties, he was able to help us refine our search and criteria. As a result, as soon as properties were listed that he knew we would like, he was able to get us in to see them immediately which translated into a fantastic deal on our home. We’ll definitely use Scott as our agent again and would certainly recommend him to any buyer or seller.
Heather & Brian Mandeville
If you’re looking for an experienced, professional team that knows exactly what they’re doing when it comes to selling your home, we highly recommend the Knowles/Woolsey team. We were impressed with Scott and Karen right from the first moment they came to have a look at our house. They immediately identified the great strengths of our home, and were honest enough to suggest what could be done to make it more marketable. They put us in touch with the right people to get the jobs done, and encouraged and supported us along the way as we went through the process. When it was time to go on the market, Scott and Karen suggested a price, and we agreed, and then the marketing began. This team knows how to immediately gain the attention of potential buyers – they put out flyers, created a video, posted on the Toronto MLS, scheduled open houses, and much more. Our house sold in just 9 days for more than our asking price. The Knowles/Woolsey team knows how to operate as a team because they have always been a team – they are family.
Haley and Terry Cruse
Jenny and I were extremely pleased with the services Chad and his team provided for us. It was very stressful but Chad and Scott were very helpful and professional through the selling process and sold our house within a month. We would definetely use them again and recommened them for other sellers.
Peter and Jenny H.
While it’s super difficult choosing a realtor, especially being fortunate to have a lot of great people in my life in the field I can honestly say how happy I am with the work Chad Woolsey put into selling my house! Not only did he work the entire Easter weekend but he sold my house in 4 days! The level of professionalism, quality of work and advertising and little extras he did, were amazing!!! I highly recommend him and the Knowles/Woolsey team for any of your real estate needs! House went firm tonight and I am glad to close that chapter of my life. Now onto bigger and better things!
Thanks Chad, you’re the best!
So thankful for our amazing friend Chad Woolsey for helping us out today in less than a moment’s notice. You certainly went above and beyond. For anyone looking to buy or sell in and around the Barrie area you won’t find a better team than the Knowles/Woolsey Team at Re/Max!
The service I received from Scott Woolsey was exceptional and I am so appreciative. He found me a hard-to-find waterfront condo with a lake view. His advice and guidance through the process was professional and personal. Being new to Barrie, I also appreciate that he was able to give me some good quality recommendations for contractors and services I required. I highly recommend Scott and his team.
We purchased perhaps the smallest home in Barrie at 750 sq ft, and ( through no faults of Scott’s ) had just about everything that could possibly go wrong occur. Pleased to say that Scott worked with us to get through all of the issues and the house closed on time with no more issues / concerns. I know for a fact it was not his largest commision by any means but he certainly worked with us as if it was. Great work, very much appreciated. Cheers
I have known Karen and Steve for about 10 years and Scott for about 5 years. I have purchased and sold several homes and investment properties through the Knowles/Woolsey team and consider the team not only as trusted business partners but “family friends”. Karen, Steve and Scott provide no nonsense advise, they always provide solid advise and never try to gain at the vendor’s expense. I deal a fair bit in real estate and count on the continued excellent advise from this team when ever I buy or sell. 5 star all the way! Thank you Scott for the marketing strategy for the recent sale of my condo – cant wait to do business again!
