Kent grew up in Downsview, Ontario, as well as the Kawartha Lakes while building their family cottage on Sturgeon Glen Road. After graduating from High School, he went on to complete his Systems and Technology Diploma at DeVry Institute of Technology.

Desiree was born and raised in the suburbs of Toronto, but escaped to cottage country whenever possible. It has now been ten years since she made cottage country her permanent home. Desiree has over 18 years of customer service experience; focusing on boating and outdoor recreational activities. It was through this industry that she gained a vast knowledge of waterfront properties and the many lakes throughout Kawartha Lakes, and Trent Lakes. With her never ending work ethic and constant drive for success, she is the right choice to list, market, and sell your real estate. Desiree appreciates all that this beautiful area has to offer and has no regrets on making this her forever home.
Barry grew up in Montreal and moved to Toronto at the age of 20. He soon became the owner and operator of a large retail chain of men's rental formal wear stores. Barry had been cottaging in the area for some time and decided to make Bobcaygeon his permanent home in 2004. He soon took over the Remax franchise for Kawartha Lakes and later sold it to our current owners; Remax All-Stars Realty Inc., Brokerage. Today he is living the life as a local real estate Broker for Remax All-Stars, and enjoying everything the Kawartha's has to offer.

Kent Leckie assisted us in purchasing a house in Bobcaygeon. He was very professional-knowledgeable, prompt and thorough. He explained all details of the purchasing process with confidence. We were very satisfied with his expertise and attention to our needs.
- Steve & Sandy - Bobcaygeon, Ontario
Finding a good real estate agent is about as hard as finding the perfect cottage! After a few years of trying to find both we lucked out and met Kent. Right away it was clear that he was focused on finding something that was a good fit for us, not him. He got to know us, asked lots of questions and was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the areas we were interested in. In a very short time frame he had found the ideal place for us and we were able to spend a very happy summer at our wonderful new cottage!
- Linda & Jason - Toronto, Ontario
We recently hired Kent to represent our interest in the sale of our 92 year old mothers condo, which, as you could imagine was a very sensitive time. Kent handled mom, with caring and thoughtfulness. We would recommend Kent to represent you and your family with out hesitation.

It is with pleasure and gratitude that we share comments on our experience with Kent Leckie in the listing and sale of our "farmhouse" and property. We chose Kent as our agent because of friendship, and it was soon apparent we made an excellent choice. Kent looked after us at each stage of the sales effort. He provided useful insights on pre-listing renovations and staging, hosted several effective open houses and showings, advertised consistently using a variety of media locally and in more urban centres, and facilitated the sale negotiations to a successful outcome. During the entire time of our professional relationship with Kent, we marveled at his competence, hard work and dedication to our cause. This, we highly recommend Kent Leckie for residential real estate needs.
- Jim & Lynn - Fenelon Falls, Ontario
While working with Kent, we were treated with respect, courtesy and a feeling of confidence. We had complete trust in him, he was always available when we called with questions/concerns. We would recommend Kent to anyone looking for a real estate agent!
- Sue & Rob - Whitby, Ontario
I can not say enough good things about Kent. He is patient, knowledgeable, and extremely passionate about his job. He always had my best interest at heart. Even after the deal was done, inspection was passed, and papers were signed, Kent made himself available for any questions I may have had about the house or the area I now call home. I am quite pleased to say that we gained not only a great realtor out of my relocation, but a great friend. I would not hesitate to recommend Kent to anyone. He is, in my opinion, one of the very best out there.
- Alex & Craig - Lindsay, Ontario
My wife and I had the pleasure of meeting Kent at an open house. After a tour we weren’t sold on the house but we were sold on Kent. His relaxed way of showing the homes and guiding us through the process was most appreciated. Having been first time buyers and at the time living approximately 2 hours away, we were not familiar with any local professionals and could not rely on our family or friends for advice. Kent took the time to make many introductions, aiding us in finding our lawyer, home inspector, and mortgage broker. All of whom were extremely kind and professional. The search for our home was a long one, but Kent stuck with us and even convinced us not to settle on a lemon. Kent found a new listing of a beautiful property by the water and rushed us up here to show it. It was perfect! Now my wife and I are moved in and we couldn’t be happier. I would recommend Kent Leckie to anyone looking to buy or sell a home or property. Without his advice and diligence we might never have found the home of our dreams.

As retiring from a job and taking that huge leap forward in selling and relocating to another community at the same time, we soon realized this had the potential of becoming daunting in many respects due to the unknowns. As my husband and I moved forward with a plan after selling our home in Barrie, early in 2015, we were now faced with the next step of finding a reliable, trustworthy, and knowledgeable realtor in an area we were considering but knowing very little about. Our immediate contact with Kent Leckie from Remax in Bobcaygeon, proved both positive and reassuring as he gathered the criteria we were looking for in a home. Our questions and concerns were always answered, never diswayed. Once he showed us our present place he explained realtor issues and legalities that I had little or no understanding of but offered his expertise and advice on how to proceed in our role as buyers throughout the entire process. I had no need to doubt his sincerity. The transaction moved forward to closing in a seamless fashion, which I give Kent all the credit for. Kent also lives in the area we settled in and although it's only been a year since our relocation, I feel very much at home. We love our new little community and have wonderful neighbours which is always important. Kent' s knowledge of our neighbourhood and the benefit of moving there, certainly helped with our decision to buy where we did. Without the guidance and support Kent offered, the experience of relocating may not have been as successful. Kent was always available to provide me with information on services and or amenities in our new area, such as referrals on auto and home insurance, hospital, clinics, shopping, and so on. For me it was important that I worked with a real estate agent who understood our needs, and respected them at the time. I can honestly say that what makes Kent Leckie an "excellent" agent, is that he treated and made us feel important as clients, and maintained that relationship throughout.

We began our search driving in and around the beautiful Kawartha district. After a few trips we found a location that looked like a potential fit. We walked into the Bobcaygeon Remax office and asked if it would be possible to have a viewing of the home we spotted. Kent Leckie introduced himself and set up the showing in a couple of minutes. My wife, AKA; "The Boss" and I didn’t realize it was that easy. There was absolutely no selling pressure at all coming from Kent. He was more interested in our purpose for relocating, asking what we like about the Kawartha's and the reasons why we wish to move here. He spoke about his wife Ruth and how much the two of them enjoy living in the area. We told him our budget and mentioned a few “likes” which would be nice if it managed in with our price range. Kent told us he would contact us when he found something to match our requests. Over the course of a year Kent would call or txt to keep us posted on the market. He also sent detailed listings via email to assist with the process. Kent soon realized exactly what the Boss needed regarding the proper location and style of home. Late winter Friday afternoon Kent called and said “a property is going on the market tomorrow, I think the Boss will like it ”We drove up on Saturday, the Boss looked around and smiled, went inside, came out and said “I’ll take it!” Kent set it up that day, he suggested local contacts if we needed. (We chose Kent’s contacts). We had our totally upgraded move in ready century home in one month!
