Nothing but good things to say about the team and Julie Woolsey. Listing during the pandemic was very stressful but Julie made it all come together by keeping us calm and positive! She remained both professional and personal throughout our entire journey and we couldn’t be happier with the sale and purchase of our new home. Very efficient and communicated extremely well. Thanks Julie!! Couldn’t have done it without you! 🙂
Scott and the Knowles/Woolsey team were truly fantastic. They worked around my schedule, and were very understanding and accommodating when it came to changes in my circumstances. If something needed to be done, it was done quickly and efficiently, but when I needed to take a short step back from the market, they were totally understanding and supportive.
Their marketing was excellent-they definitely think outside of the box to make sure that your home has as much exposure and traffic as possible (cool/personalized videos and photos, utilizing social media for exposure, and reminders on social media of desirable features the home and area can offer).
I would highly recommend them! They have sold my home, my sister’s home, and a few friends homes in a quick and professional way. Thanks so much to Scott and the team!
Working with Scott from the Knowles/ Woolsey team was such a wonderful experience. From the very beginning Scott was professional, friendly, and very attentive to our needs. He listened closely to what we were looking for in a forever home and found us the house of our dreams. Not only did he find us our forever home, he sold our current home in just three days. Scott walked us through the whole process with such patience – thoroughly explaining each step to us as we quickly bought and sold our home. We were so confident in Scott from the beginning and would certainly feel confident in using his services again. We would undoubtedly recommend Scott to all of our friends and family looking to buy or sell.

Scott and his team we wonderful to work with. They were accommodating and understanding of our busy schedules, but made sure we were satisfied with every step.
We were able to prepare and sell our home quickly and easily thanks to this fantastic team!

Scott was fantastic, he always took the time to answer our million and one questions. He was very professional, courteous and thorough. Buying and selling a home isn’t something you do on the regular, we couldn’t believe how easy the process was and that was no doubt because of Scott.
Now to get ready for the move….we won’t need to worry about boxes or renting a truck because the KW team has provided these things at no extra charge. Who does that?!? Unreal!
Thanks again for the wonderful service. We are so happy with our decision to work with you.

The thought of buying and selling a home was something I thought was going to be a stressful experience. I reached out to Scott Woolsey to help us through the process, and I cannot believe how stress free the whole process was. Scott and his team helped us purchase our dream home in Barrie, and then turned around and sold our home in Orillia within 24 hours of listing, for more than the listing price! The service the Knowles/Woolsey team provides is excellent. We received a visit from a professional with regards to staging our home. The photos and video produced by the team definitely showed all of the best features of our home. The full colour brochure the team provided to give out at showings was beautiful. We immediately received multiply offers on our home. Scott helped us to understand and accept the best offer. From the support, knowledge and special touches, they truly are one of a kind. I will recommend Scott and his team over and over again to anyone who is in the market to buy or sell a home. Thank you, thank you, thank you… you guys have no idea how much support and peace of mind you provided us from start to finish. To the whole Knowles/Woolsey team; you guys are AMAZING!
We had an amazing experience with Scott Woolsey and the Knowles/Woolsey team. We lived over two hours away from Barrie when we purchased a home. Scott was prompt in communication, flexible and accommodating of our viewing times and REALLY knows the market well. I was most impressed with how well he read us and what we were looking for. We bought a house very quickly. He made it easy and enjoyable. We love our house and couldn’t be happier! His team went above and beyond to welcome us to Barrie and our new home. He is very well connected to the Barrie community and has also given us great referrals for local services. We highly recommend Scott and his team! We were fortunate to have such a great agent. Thanks Scott & the K/W Team!
I listed my house with the Knowles/Woolsey team at the end of June. I went with Steve Knowles on the referral of my past realtor who had relocated out of the area. Steve had listed & sold my mothers place in Mississauga, within an amazing few days. He was also the realtor we used to purchase a condo for mom in Barrie. I had no doubt in my mind that when I was ready to list my house for sale, Steve Knowles would be my realtor. He assured me that he would “have my back throughout the process.”
What I didn’t know up until this point, was all the behind the scenes work involved, by Ursula, the Client Care Coordinator. Ursula was amazing!!! Any time I had a question or concern she was very quick to respond to my inquiries. When I was feeling doubtful or worried about things, she had nothing but very positive, uplifting encouragement for me. Ursula went above & beyond to help me immensely throughout the process!!!
My house sold within about a month after listing, & closing was 20 days after firm offer!!! This was beyond amazing to me because I noticed that most of the other houses up for sale in my neighbourhood, listed with other realtors, were sitting stagnant. They were sitting for months & months.
My goal was to have my house sold & to relocate out of province by the end of August. Not much time, seeing as I only listed at the end of June. Yet between Ursula & Steve Knowles, my goal became a reality for me. I am happily living out of Barrie, & out of province now.
I would very highly recommend the Knowles/Woolsey Team!! I have nothing but positive words to say about them!!!
As for Ursula, she will always be in my life now:)
Chad was very very professional and made a stressful point of life look easy.
They are very supportive.
GREAT videos too.
We will absolutely use them again!
Scott was the best real estate agent I could’ve asked for in listing (and quickly selling) my first property! I didn’t know what to expect and assumed it was going to be a daunting process – he made it far from that.
After a quick introduction, his professional and warm personality, along with his knowledge of the Barrie real estate market made me feel very confident in trusting him throughout the entire process. He was very transparent and clear on what the process would be, and I didn’t have one surprise that caught me off guard. He prepared me well in advance for everything to come, gave me great tips to help maximize the value of my property, and had solid advice and strategies for setting my listing price.
His team also did a fantastic job making my place look amazing – they provided a quality walkaround video of the property, and a printed brochure piece, they have a skilled team very good at their craft which resulted in plenty of interest in the first few days after listing.
Scott was diligent in checking in to ensure I was feeling good throughout the showings. Once we received an offer he was great at explaining his perspective and suggestions, but never pushed me into a corner, rather allowed me to digest and manage the counter-offer amount. He helped me easily navigate the paperwork that came with accepting an offer and was quick to hop on a call to walk through any questions.
The final weeks after I sold the property, he was still kindly checking-in and offering support right up until my closing date.
It was an absolute pleasure working with Scott, I’d highly recommend him to anyone new to the market or looking for a savvy and well-connected real estate agent. I’ll be sure to connect with him when I’m ready to purchase in the future.
Scott is amazing!! Getting back into the marketing after being out for a few years was a challenge for a single woman but Scott made the whole process easy.
I feel great about the whole journey with Scott; he worked we me to find a home a could not only afford but that I will love and works with my changing life style. He and his team are very professional and accommodating. I hope this is my forever home but if something changes I would ask for Scott’s advice in a heartbeat.
We just sold our home with Steve a few weeks ago and we are very happy. Steve and his team were great every step of the way, the house received great exposure and sold fast! He always had the answer to our questions and always kept us up to date. We have recommended him in the past and will continue to do so in the future.
To put it simply, Scott Woolsey is a real estate ROCKSTAR! Listing a family members condo was something I was dreading. Scott had all the answers to our questions and made us feel confident through it all. It needed a lot of work before it would be list worthy and Scott had all the answers and contacts to get the job done in a timely manner. He not only gave us contacts but, allowed us to use the teams trailer to clear the place out, without us having to worry too much about that. The contractors he referred were also amazing and professional in their communication and finishes. The condo was listed and within in 5 days was SOLD! I can’t thank Scott enough for making this process a seamless one. The next time I am in the market to sell or buy, or know someone that is, I will definitely be calling/ recommending Scott to ensure a positive experience.
Jaime Lynn Ahern
Scott was amazing to deal with. He had answers to all my questions and made the process an easy one. Scott and his team did an unbelievable job on the pictures and video which really set him apart from others. I will use Scott and his team again whenever I’m back in the real estate market. Going with Scott and the Knowles/Woolsey team will ensure a smooth and positive experience.
I have worked with Scott for many years – since the Nautica at 33 Ellen was built. I purchased 2 units and, through Scott’s good judgement, rented them both out to terrific tenants for years. Throughout the rental process and, later, through the process of selling the units (several years apart) Scott has been a delight to work with. He is highly capable and delivers results. I recommend him highly.
Julie is amazing!! We had family medical matters during the time of selling and purchasing. I am so glad that we had chosen well.
I feel great about the whole journey with Julie.
She was both friend and agent and that IS what it’s all about. Can’t find that kind of caring with an internet broker.
I thank the Knowles/Woolsley team ❤

I am a 3peat return client of the Knowles/Woolsey Team. 15 years ago, when I made the move to Barrie, Steve assisted me with the purchase process of my first condo. 5 years later when I left Barrie, I contacted Steve again and it was sold in 2 hours. The positive experience of working with him always stayed with me and when I decided to move back to Barrie earlier this year, I knew exactly who to contact to help me find my next home. After initially working with Steve, I had the pleasure of being introduced to Julie who with the same patience, professionalism, and resourcefulness helped me find, negotiate, and purchase my new condo. Throughout the entire process Julie was consistently helpful and looking out for my best interest and I am so grateful to her for that. Julie even provided me with recommendations for movers, one of which I will be using for my move. I will happily recommend Julie and the Knowles/Woolsey Team to all my friends and family for their real estate needs.
Steve was very helpful as we went through the process of downsizing and selling the home we had lived in for 22 years. He was always very responsive to our questions (we had lots!!) and provided very helpful/knowledgeable advice for selling in today’s market. When Steve was unavailable due to personal matters, Scott Woolsey stepped in and provided the same wonderful customer service. The video & pamphlets they produced were top-notch which I’m sure increased the interest in our property. I would definitely recommend their team to anyone planning to buy or sell in the future.
Stewart and Joyce Goheen
Scott Woolsey and his team are professional and effective. We have used him multiple times and every time has gone extremely well. Our last house was listed and sold in 7 days! The video and pictures he took we are keeping as memories of the house because they are so well done!
Nick and Lynda Drake
We cannot praise Julie of the Knowles/Woolsey team Re/Max enough. We would without a shadow of a doubt recommend her to anyone. She not only demonstrates she wants the best for her clients, but diligently works in order to do so. She confidently guided us through the many bumps in the road we had with our recent sale/purchase. Julie, we were truly blessed to have been your clients.
Scott was more than helpful. He helped make the process very smooth. He was very accommodating to my busy schedule. I would definitely work with him again in the future.
I was incredibly lucky! When it was apparent a move was necessary, I didn’t know realtors in Barrie. I did know where I wanted to live. A friend suggested the Remax satellite office which I visited that very day. Steve welcomed my interest, listened to my needs then promptly arranged viewings within 24 hours. Steve has a very settled, knowledgeable, honest approach which suited me perfectly. Once an offer was accepted, Steve relieved me of several tasks when my plate was overflowing. He was respectful of my needs, executed the relocation of redundant furniture, he made my move seamless. Thank you Steve for your most kind considerations, you are the best! When you promised a WOW experience, you delivered to beyond my expectations. I love my new home.
“We recently had the pleasure of working with Scott Woolsey and his team…the experience was flawless. From listing to showing to selling to buying, Scott was extremely knowledgeable, resourceful, attentive and always polite. Although it was a difficult decision to part with our beloved home Scott was successful in finding just the perfect downsize. We entrusted him with all of the important details and believed in his strategies and in no time our house was sold. Scott’s wealth of contacts made for an easy transition and we are so excited to finally be in our next “home”. I would strongly recommend working with Scott and the Woolsey/ Knowles team, personally I would do it all again and will definitely look him up if needed in our future. Thank you Scott, your commitment has meant so much. “

Scott and his team did a fabulous job in helping us purchase our first home. They were very professional, knowledgeable and friendly. He helped us work through the bumps in the process and we are now settled into our new home. Being our first purchase it was quite nerve wracking and he made the decisions easy and comfortable. They put a personal touch into this experience and we are very grateful!

My husband Rob and I recently used the Knowles/Woolsey team to buy and sell our house. I cannot recommend a better team to work with! Steve did a great job marketing our home with great pictures and a video. He did such a good job that our house sold in 24 hours with multiple offers. We were very confident in him and were more than happy with the services we got. If we ever need to move again we will be using them again! So if you are looking to have a great team on your side buying or selling your house, you need to contact the Knowles/Woolsey Team!

When I decided to put my house up for sale, a very good friend of mine recommend Chad Woolsey, and I’m soo grateful she did.
A couple of hours after our first phone call, Chad brought a hard cover book of data for me to look over before our first meeting the next day. During our meeting, Chad was very professional, personable, responsive, and looked out for my best interest.
He brought in a professional photographer, the photos and video were spectacular….. Thank You!!!
If you are looking for a real estate agent, Chad Woolsey is the perfect person for you. His sales results speak for himself and you will not be disappointed. My house “SOLD” in 6 days.
I can’t Thank Chad, and his top notch team enough for making my selling experience as “stress free” as possible.I will be referring my Friends and Family to him! I will absolutely use his service again.
Scott was our representative on the sale of our Barrie Home. We have known Scott since he was a teenager, and it was a pleasure to work with him, now that he is an accomplished agent.
We tried listing with ANOTHER realtor BEFORE using Knowles/Woolsey and were MORE than disappointed!!!!!
The marketing video and package Scott did was phenomenal and it certainly did the trick. We Sold within 3 weeks!
The office staff was professional and courteous and Scott always returned my texts quickly and had a lot of great information/knowledge to share.
I WISH we had used this team in the first place. Lesson Learned !!
Gerry and Anne Martin
Had an excellent experience with Scott and the Knowles/Woolsey team. Interviewed several real estate teams and by far the professionalism and attention to detail are unrivaled by this group. More importantly, seeing as this team originated years ago and now in the second generation, there is tacit knowledge transferred within the team that gives them an advantage in difficult or challenging market situations. Lastly, Scott and his team, unlike the others interviewed, had a selling strategy that was adaptable if and when there were changes in the market. I fully recommend this team.
Our experience with Scott and his team was nothing short of exceptional. After my fiance accepted a teaching position at UPEI, we were quickly thrust into the unfamiliar process of selling our first family home. “Unique” was the word we heard most frequent when interviewing agents, as my partner and I had made several personal aesthetic as well as functional updates throughout the home. Little to compare it to in the area, we received a range of pricing suggestions from other agents, paired with varying degrees of confidence and enthusiasm. It was all daunting to say the least as we tried to educate ourselves and navigate the unpredictable market. Scott came highly recommended from a friend, and didn’t miss a beat from the second we met him. Incredibly personable, vivacious, enthusiastic, educated in his field, attentive, so when he presented the most aggressive asking price we were incredibly confident that he could help us achieve this goal. It was overall a great match as he seemed to truly appreciate the value of the home and the thought that had gone into the small details. Over the next week, Scott stopped in to check on our progress of getting the house ‘show ready’, dropped off boxes to get a jump start on packing and eliminate the clutter, offered use of their personal storage and I don’t doubt that he would have gotten muddy in the gardens if I had asked. The creative photos, video, pamphlets, signage, social media, website attention were all professionally done, with a quick turnaround. He was available for advice practically any time, and even lent insight into the purchase and terms of our new home. It was such a sense of relief to know that we were in very capable hands. Long story short, with showings booked back to back for the first three days straight, we received practically a full offer less than 24 hours on the market. Relieved is an understatement, as now we can enjoy time with family and friends before the big move out east. We cannot thank him enough for helping make this process as painless as possible.
To say that Chad is an incredible real estate agent is an understatement. He continually went above and beyond for my mom when she downsized a few months ago. From selling her old place for top dollar and getting her new place for a great price and everything in between. He helped with the small details that come up with any move and was available for support and guidance throughout the entire process. Moving can be so stressful, but not when you have such an amazing professional along for the ride!
Return clients. Wow Scott. Again as a result of your professionalism and experience you slam dunked another purchase and sale for us. You brought serious buyers to the table and sold our condo in under a week. Both your tenacity and patience closed the deal for our “new” condo in record time as well. We would highly recommend Scott and The Knowles/Woolsey Team any time, all day long.
Joe and Berni
Two big moments in our life included Scott. We bought our first home and now our forever home. And it couldn’t have been a better experience.
Scott made sure we were well taken care of. He was so patient and understanding in showing us numerous properties to find exactly what we wanted.
So quick to respond to our many, many messages. Always so professional. Our experience with him was fantastic. I would highly recommend Scott and his team, a smooth experience from start to finish.
We were very happy with the Knowles/Woolsey Team experience! Our agent, Scott Woolsey, gave us great feedback about small details and improvements that needed to be completed inside the house prior to the listing. The whole team was approachable and contacted us about showings, an open house, interest etc. We were very informed throughout the whole process. Our home was only on the market under 40 days and sold over asking, with multiple offers. We would definitely use Scott and the K/W Team again to sell our next home!
Our experience with Julie Woolsey was amazing. My husband and I are downsizing and looking for a house or condo in Barrie – we met Julie at an open house that she was hosting and decided that she was the agent for us. She escorted us around Barrie for weeks, maybe even months helping us to find just the right lifestyle we were looking for. Julie is very knowledgeable about the area and local real estate – also she has great connections with local trades. It is a very difficult and emotional transition and finding just the right space was not easy!
Wendy and Bert Agostino
If we were to choose only 2 words to describe Scott’s relationship with us as our Real Estate Agent, those 2 words would be patience and professionalism.
We are from Toronto and have been considering a move to Barrie for a couple of years. Scott has been showing us condos in Barrie for the last 2 years. His patience with our indecisiveness is to be commended. At one point we were surprised that he did not “fire” us as his clients. When we joked about it to him he was quite gracious in his response. Scott’s knowledge of the condo market on the Barrie Lakeshore is thorough. He offers lots of information, answers most questions with a confidence of knowledge, and obtains answers promptly for the few remaining questions.
Although we hope to make this our last move, we would highly recommend him to family and friends.

I just want to Thank Julie for her excellent customer service and professional manner in which she carries herself. She is prompt on returning messages whether it’s e-mail, text or phone call. She does what she says and keeps you updated on every turn. The mortgage personnel even mentioned how fabulous she was to deal with! They mentioned if all agents were like Julie they could get twice as much done without incident! What a true processional!!!
Thank you Julie!!!
We have just finalized our 2nd sale and purchase with Steve Knowles in the last 2 years. Great experiences, fun team. If Steve died, we would ask another member of their team to represent us. We experienced honesty, hard work, experience and knowledge, humour and an openness to think outside the box to get things done. You can tell Steve has depth to his experience and hustle. He easily answered all our questions, while dealing with our stress…..With this team approach, someone was always available to meet our needs ( showings, open houses, paperwork -Ursula!). They aren’t too big so you feel like a number, but they aren’t too small that you feel they are out of touch. Like a locally brewed craft beer. Quality. We trust Steve and his team, the service and detail you get are top notch. Definitely get your money’s worth with this team!!
Much thanks, Dave and Jessica

When I was debating on buying, I looked through a number of mls ads. I came across what appeared to be a stunning home. The listing stuck out like no other listing. I knew when I went to view the home I would either find my new home or my realtor.
I met Julie first. The home I was viewing was set to perfection. So many little touches were present. I did not buy that home but I knew I wanted to work with the Knowles/Woolsley Team.
Scott and Julie set up an appointment at my home the next day. They had everything prepared for me including a booklet of comparable homes in my neighbourhood and a review of the original listing for my home. The thorough information and completeness of it all amazed me. They would be ready to list my home as soon as was necessary and were prepared to help me find my next home.
Within a week, I found the home I was looking for, my house was listed, and everything was set in motion. They had everything ready and the team was ready at a moments notice if I needed something. Julie, Scott, and Ursula were in control, knowledgeable, and paid attention to details I didn’t even think of.
The professional photographer took amazing photos, they made these beautiful booklets for the viewings, they gave me information on how to prepare and set up my home for viewings, so many details! My house sold within 2 days over asking.
They gave great recommendations and paid attention to details when I bought the new home as well. I was so excited I didn’t think of many things that Julie pointed out like making sure items listed were in fact in the home. She was able to ensure we were informed of everything necessary.
And the details! My gosh! The move went so smoothly! They recommended a gap in closing of a week which gave us time to slowly get ready. They gave me boxes, lent me a moving trailer (big enough to fit everything from my townhome), and gave me the most thoughtful housewarming gift which was something I had mentioned at the beginning and they remembered! It warmed my heart. They still keep in contact with help from time to time with little questions.
I absolutely recommend them!
Michelle and Eric Chen
A BIG THANK-YOU to Scott and Karen for the amazing experience of purchasing our first home.
Scott’s knowledge of the market and strategic planning was very impressive and Karen was a force to be reckoned with during the bidding war for our new home. Together as a team, they fought for us and won.
They kept us in the loop via texts and phone calls and made the whole process so smooth and simple.
Definitely feeling spoiled… they supplied us with moving boxes, a moving trailer, the house was not left in a clean state so they offered to send a cleaning service over, and the list goes on.
Also, a big shout-out to Ursula, the team’s client care coordinator for all the hard work you do behind the scenes.
I highly recommend THE KNOWLES/WOOLSEY TEAM to anyone buying or selling. They are the BEST!!!
We are repeat clients of Scott Woolsey. We have both bought and sold properties with Scott and his team. Scott is a true professional agent with great knowledge and integrity. The Knowles/Woolsey Team work together to service their clients. Every aspect of our sale from photos of our home, a high quality brochure, continuing communication, realistic pricing and completing the deal are of the highest quality. Many thanks to all of The Knolwes/Woolsey Team.
Steve and Susan
Once again, the service received from your team, Steve in particular, was spectacular. Both the sale of my home, and purchase of the new home were seamless from start to finish. The price received for my Meadowland property surpassed my wildest expectations, and conversely with your help, we managed to purchase a house in Barrie during the crazy spring selling frenzy for 25K under asking – unheard of results on both sides of the transaction! I’ve said it before, but it bares repeating, The Knowles/Woolsey Team is one of the best in Barrie and I simply can’t say enough good things about all of you!
Fantastic team of professionals to deal with. Very professional and experienced. Quality marketing and service was exceptional on every level, every step of the way. I would highly recommend this team to anyone without hesitation.
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!
Melissa and Dave Parkinson
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
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.

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!
