“Organization, a love of people, sense of humour and hard work ethic are just a few words that describe me. When choosing a REALTOR®, I can help you buy or sell the perfect place to call home!”

Meet Sherry

As your Collingwood and Blue Mountains Real Estate Agent, my goal is to earn your confidence and represent you with the purchase or sale on your next home by getting to know a little more about me.

I was born in Fredericton, N.B. After graduating from the University of New Brunswick with a 4 yr. Bachelor of Education I moved to Toronto where I began my teaching career in 1981. Working exclusively for independent private schools, I progressed up the ranks and moved from teacher to administrator. The last 14 years of my teaching career were spent at Holy Trinity School (HTS), an exclusive independent school in Richmond Hill as Director of the Junior School and then the school’s first Director of Development. In my capacity as Development Director I was responsible for raising over $6 million dollars for the school’s capital campaign, all special events, alumni relations and marketing.

My husband Stephen and I purchased our first condo in Collingwood in 1992 at Lighthouse Point. For 12 years we were weekenders, fleeing the city every Friday night and dreading the return every Sunday evening! In August of 2004, we decided to make the leap and sell our home in Unionville and move permanently to Collingwood.

Upon hearing the announcement by the Headmaster at HTS, one of the parents approached me and asked if I would be interested in working for him at project he was starting in Collingwood of high end, luxury waterfront condos called Admirals Gate. Always up for a challenge, I jumped at the chance and a real estate career was born.

Organization, a love of people, sense of humour and hard work ethic are just a few words that describe me. When choosing a REALTOR®, I can help you buy or sell the perfect place to call home!

“I am tenacious, dedicated and committed to providing the best possible service to my clients, many of which I have kept in contact with and see on a regular basis. I love what I do and I love where I live!”

Meet Emma

As your Collingwood and Blue Mountains Real Estate Agent, my goal is to earn your confidence and represent you with the purchase or sale on your next home by getting to know a little more about me.

I was born and raised in West London, England and moved to Canada in November 2004 with my husband and two young children. We chose Collingwood as we felt it was a wonderful place to raise our children and we have not been disappointed at all.

I started my early career in the banking industry and went on to run the purchase ledger department of a small building company. Within two years I was recruited by Glaxo to work in their Financial Accounting Team and from there my career progressed. I was asked if I wanted to study for my accountancy qualifications and whilst working at Glaxo I completed a two year part time course and became a Chartered Management Accountant. I was heavily involved in the financial accounting process work in relation to the acquisition of the Welcome Foundation and the subsequent merger with SmithKlineBeecham and laterally became responsible for the UK Inter Company financing department for GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) PLC.

After marrying, and having 2 children, I decided that I would like to fulfill my lifelong dream and move to Canada, a country I had visited many times as a child. Once settled my husband set up a successful plumbing company and I went back to school and took the real estate course, something in which I had always been very interested. My husband and I have become entrenched in the community through our children. My son plays rep hockey and soccer and my daughter loves skiing and swimming.

I am tenacious, dedicated and committed to providing the best possible service to my clients, many of which I have kept in contact with and see on a regular basis. I love what I do and I love where I live!

“The Rioux Baker Team’s vision to provide each client with energetic, dedicated and professional sales and marketing services through a team of seasoned agents was exactly where I wanted to align myself.”

Meet Anne

I grew up with my brother, John, in downtown Toronto where I spent most of my life. My father, an advertising executive with McLaren Advertising, influenced my early career choice which started at Global Television at the exciting period of its inception. Working in the scheduling department, I was responsible for managing the time of 25 men and 3 studios.

Later, I began my second successful career in which I sold real estate in the center of Toronto for the next 15 years spanning the tumultuous decade of the 80’s when interest rates reached the budget-busting level of 18% and higher. Subsequently after rates subsided to more normal levels, I decided I wanted a weekend getaway. Collingwood seemed ideally suited: relatively easy access from the city, affordable and offering year-round activities satisfying a broad range of interests. Indeed, I enjoyed life here so much that I decided to make it my full-time residence, moving here in 2001 upon my retirement.

Years later, I recognized the excitement associated with the challenging rate of growth of this community and decided to re-activate my agent’s licence and join Clairwood Real Estate where I met Sherry and Emma. And, when they decided to form The Rioux Baker Team, I enthusiastically jumped on the band wagon. Their vision to provide each client with energetic, dedicated and professional sales and marketing services through a team of seasoned agents was exactly where I wanted to align myself. Their integrity and vast local knowledge rounds out the package of services attractive to all our clients.

In addition to my professional life, I busy myself participating in lessons at The Bay School of Art, playing golf at Blue Mountain Golf & Country Club, listening to lectures offered by the Lifelong Learning Center, boating in our beautiful Georgian bay waters, and generally enjoying the interaction with the many friends I have in the community.

“There is never a dull moment in the office with Sherry and Emma…they know how to get the job done, with integrity, and still keep a sense of humour!”

Meet Jacki

My name is Jacki Binnie and I have lived in Collingwood for the past 3 years.

Originally from Scotland, I came to Canada with my family in 1992.

We moved to Collingwood as my 4 children were all growing older and moving on with their own lives, and the time just seemed right!

My background is in Education, having been a teacher in a private school in Richmond Hill, Ontario, for 15 years, and the owner of an Oxford Learning Centre for 5 years.

I have known Sherry for 20 years having met as teachers in the same school, and working together for 7 years.

It is great to come full circle, working now with Sherry again, in a very different environment, but equally rewarding! And meeting and working with Emma has also been a great experience. Both Sherry and Emma are extremely hardworking and knowledgeable individuals, with a strong moral compass, which is evident on a daily basis!

After joining Clairwood last year as an assistant to the Rioux Baker Team, I experienced first- hand what it means to deal professionally and with integrity, with all of our clients. It was a natural next step to become a licensed Realtor and stay within the Clairwood ‘family’, benefitting from the collective expertise in this first class Brokerage!

There is never a dull moment in the office with Sherry and Emma…they know how to get the job done, with integrity, and still keep a sense of humour!!

“As Collingwood continues to grow, I look forward to providing a professional approach to individuals choosing to call the Southern Georgian Bay area, home.”

Meet David

After a decade as sales manager for a Toronto advertising firm I felt it was time for a change.  I had personally been investing in real estate for several years and had often considered getting licensed so that I could begin selling real estate as a profession.  In May of 1989, I obtained my real estate license to practice in the Province of Ontario.

At the urging of a Manager at a Canada Trust Real Estate branch in Brampton, I joined his sales team.  Over the next couple of years, he would become a friend and mentor in the business.  As a graduate with a degree in English literature, he taught me the importance of language in the sales process, which is something I’ve never forgotten. In 1991, I took a leap of faith and joined RE/MAX Realty Services Inc. and remained with that firm until the fall of 2017.  During the past 28 years I have had the pleasure of representing so many wonderful families in buying and selling one of their most important assets…the family home.

In early 2015, my wife and I purchased a property in Collingwood as a retreat from the hustle , bustle & congestion of the GTA.  As we spent more time in Collingwood, enjoying the outdoors and recreation activities, we decided to sell our home in Brampton and move to Collingwood in the spring of 2017.  As time went by, I felt the need to become part of a local brokerage in the Collingwood area.  After reviewing my options, I chose to join the The Rioux Baker Real Estate Team, which is part of the boutique brokerage firm of Clairwood Real Estate Corporation. The Team offered me great support, and an in-depth knowledge of the local market.  As Collingwood continues to grow, I look forward to providing a professional approach to individuals choosing to call the Southern Georgian Bay area, home.

“Since moving to Wasaga Beach, I have completely embraced life in the Georgian Bay area.”

Meet Almira

I was born in Manila City, Philippines; raised in Mississauga, Ontario; and lived much of my adult life in downtown Toronto (interrupted by a 3-year stint in Victoria, BC) before moving to Wasaga Beach with my husband in 2015.  

After earning an arts degree in history and political science from the University of Toronto, I realized that there was little demand for historians or political scientists, so I wisely began a career in office administration. Over the years, I worked my way up from receptionist to eventually becoming a project coordinator. During this time, my continuing interest in all things historic and old, culminated in a second degree from U of T in biological anthropology and archaeological sciences. 

In 2004, I decided to leave the corporate world behind and studied massage therapy at ICT Kikkawa College.  I earned my licence in 2006, and worked in the field as a massage therapist, instructor, teaching clinic coordinator, and curriculum editor. It was a career I enjoyed, but while my heart was willing, my body was telling me that it was time to move on. I retired my licence in 2014. 

As my massage therapy career was winding down, I decided to return to my administrative roots. I took accounting and bookkeeping courses with George Brown College and McMaster University to upgrade my skills.  I found work as a company administrator, and later as an office & finance coordinator before becoming the rental manager and assistant to Sherry and Emma at Clairwood.

Since moving to Wasaga Beach, I have completely embraced life in the Georgian Bay area.  In the summer, there’s a good chance you’ll find me enjoying the beach with friends and family, chatting with neighbours on the street, working in my garden, or paddling around Georgian Bay  with my dog, Seven. Winter is equally fun and filled with outdoor activities. However, of all the great things that one can do here during winter time, there’s nothing I enjoy more than hitting the slopes at nearby Blue Mountain, and sharing après-ski with my family and friends.
