Announcing - New Area Real Estate Association

  It’s official!  The merger between the Georgian Triangle Association of REALTORS® and the Southern Georgian Bay Real Estate Association in Midland is now complete.

  The new “merged” organization based out of 243 St Marie Street in Collingwood is now known as the Southern Georgian Bay Association of REALTORS® (SGBAR).  Total SGBAR membership is approximately 480 REALTOR® members.

  The accompanying map outlines the geographical boundary for which SGBAR has Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) jurisdiction.  It covers the areas that previously fell under the Southern Georgian Bay Real Estate Association which includes the Towns of Midland and Penetanguishene, the surrounding communities of Elmvale, Port McNicoll, Victoria Harbour, Coldwater, Port Severn, Honey Harbour and Tiny as well as Tay, Springwater, Oro-Medonte, Severn and Georgian BayTownships.  Also included are those areas previously within the Georgian Triangle Association of REALTORS® which included the municipalities of Wasaga Beach, Collingwood, Clearview Township, The BlueMountains, Municipality of Meaford and Grey Highlands.  As you will note, the new Association essentially covers the entire bottom portion of Georgian Bay.

  From both a recreational and a retirement standpoint, Southern Georgian Bay continues to attract a growing increase from those potentially looking to acquire property.  This merger will result in a stronger Association of local real estate experts, better positioned to adapt to the ongoing changes in technology and other issues that continue to impact the real estate profession, while at the same time allowing us to meet the increased demands from consumers for more comprehensive information and improved overall service.
