Ashley Jackson

Broker, Team Leader

Growing up in Red Bay and returning to the area after post-secondary education, Ashley is familiar with what makes the Bruce Peninsula unique, and shows her passion for the area in her work. Hiking the Bruce Trail, visiting the many beaches, enjoying Lake Huron sunsets & cross-country skiing are some of her favorite things to do on the Bruce Peninsula. Summer or Winter there is lots to do!

Working as an administrative assistant with Darlene James for over two years, focusing in advertising, customer care and staff training, Ashley has established a deep understanding of the ins and outs of the real estate industry.

Her passion for the industry led her to pursue her real estate certification while attending Conestoga College, allowing her to move into her next role at RE/MAX Grey Bruce Realty Inc., as a Sales Representative.

Ashley received her Bachelors Degree in Interior Design, graduating with honours from Conestoga College. During this time, Ashley studied the Ontario Building Code, zoning by-laws and construction methods, and developed practical negotiating skills; knowledge which translates perfectly into the real estate industry. Ashley has received several awards for academic proficiency and skillful design solutions. During her spare time, she participated in design competitions and pursued several volunteer projects.

Interior design is all about listening to your clients and understanding what they need, then translating this need into a reality. This is what Ashley strives to do in real estate as well. Searching for a home or property is a journey, and Ashley cannot wait to help you embark on that journey!

An Absolute Pleasure
M. Cook

It was wonderful doing business with Ashley and their team, and an absolute pleasure working with her. Ashley’s knowledge and professionalism were extremely helpful. I have no doubts that if I listed with anybody else, right about now I’d be wondering what I would have to do this spring and summer to sell. Ashley is professional, knowledgeable, business-minded, conscientious, thoughtful, helpful, personable and very kind!

Truly Grateful
Trish & Trevor Carpenter


We have had the wonderful opportunity of working with Nellie to both purchase and sell property on two separate occasions and both experiences were an absolute pleasure. At a time in life that can be exciting, stressful and overwhelming all at the same time Nellie made it so easy and such a pleasant process. Nellie truly goes above and beyond for her clients every step of the way. We are truly grateful for Nellie and her professional guidance. If you are looking to sell or purchase a property do yourself a favour and contact Nellie From.


Client Review
Honest, Friendly & Committed
David & Erika

From our first phone call until our closing date, Nellie was honest, friendly, and committed to us. Not being from the area, we relied on Nellie for information about local real estate trends, points of interest, and typical cottage features. She was incredibly knowledgeable, and helped us to find a place with everything we were looking for. 


Client Review
Everlasting Experience
Ilar & Amy

It’s been quite some time since we worked together for the sale of our lot in Dyers Bay, on Harkins Rd.
And since that time, Amy and I have had a couple of real estate experiences in South Western Ontario.
Whenever we talk about previous buying or selling, the conversation always turns to how well things went while working with you to sell our lot. Everything from first discussions about whether to sell, how much to sell for, getting the property listed (with amazing photos and description), and the actual selling process was great – you made it simple and smooth. Both Amy and I appreciated your approach to selling and how well you communicated through every step of the process.
And, we just wanted to let you know how pleased we were (and are still) about working with you.

Chris Mawdsley

Broker, Assistant Team Leader

 The Bruce Peninsula has been near and dear to Chris for almost 50 years.  Since coming here as a teenager on a family vacation, he has always considered this area special.  When he first met his wife, Angela, he brought her here on vacation, and ‘warned’ her that he would very much like to live here one day.  That day came within two weeks of their nest being empty.  They moved in November 2009 and are completely at home here, enjoying the attractions, activities and the marvellous sense of community afforded by life in a rural area.

Prior to entering real estate in 2013, Chris had a long and successful career as a server IT guru,  IT service delivery manager and program manager for IBM Canada.  He worked in the tech sector from 1980 until taking early retirement from IBM.

Chris has been a church pianist; community theatre actor, director, and musical director; he has been a tourist railway conductor, rules instructor and board member; SCUBA diver; photographer and entrepreneur.  His interest in trains and railway history led him start a model railway in a purpose-built basement at his home at Miller Lake.  This is an on-going project that will keep him going for a long time to come.

Currently, Chris holds a national snooker referee’s certificate.  He refereed and acted as assistant tournament director for the 2021 Pan American championship in Toronto, a tournament which saw the champion earn a two-year exemption to the World Snooker Tour.  Chris is looking forward to the return of the Canadian Championships which have been on hold during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Chris is an active member of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 202 in Lion’s Head, and is membership chair for the branch.

Chris and Angela will soon celebrate their 25th Anniversary.  They have raised five children and have three grandchildren to spoil!

Chris has received awards for customer service and sales from IBM, RE/MAX and Keller Williams, and looks forward to bringing you personal service and a commitment to your success in all your real estate needs.

Above & Beyond

Chris went above and beyond to help us find the perfect spot to call home.  He helped us find a beautiful lot for a house to be built. He helped us fit into our new community. He truly cares about people and is willing to help.  If you are looking to buy or sell, I would say Chris is who you want to represent you.  

Dylan Dolson

Sales Representative

Dylan’s deep-seated roots started on the family farm just outside of Owen Sound. Dylan has also had a second home here on the tip of the Bruce Peninsula for nearly two decades! This connection to the land in both Grey and Bruce gave him an appreciation of everything there is to offer. The Bruce Peninsula is where Dylan worked his summer job for many years at the National Parks, eventually managing a business in the area, and now lives full time in the area with his wife. He is truly in love with the area and wonderful local community!

For many years prior to entering into the world of real estate, Dylan managed a number of vacation cottage rentals. For him, he always took pleasure in welcoming families arriving for their week on the beautiful Bruce Peninsula and guiding them on their stay. Dylan also enjoyed renovating the cottages. This gave him a good understanding of the building code and local bylaws as well as a great connection with local contractors.

Dylan has a true passion in aviation and enjoys being in the air whenever possible! Starting as a childhood dream while on a school trip with his class, Dylan visited the home of WW1 Flying Ace Billy Bishop in Owen Sound. A fitting start to his passion as he later took all his aviation courses at the Billy Bishop Airport. Dylan took to the skies solo for the first time nearly a decade ago and has loved every minute since! He says seeing the cliffs and turquoise waters from above is truly breathtaking and further grows his appreciation for living here on the Bruce!

Highly Recommend
Reece Jones

Dylan was an absolute pleasure to work with on our recent vacant land purchase. Dylan’s professionalism and knowledge of the local area stood out to us from the get go. He was always quick to respond to any questions we had along the way and readily available to arrange showings. When it came time to present an offer, Dylan’s assistance in presenting comparable recent sales for review and contract negotiations were fantastic. It was easy to see that Dylan has a true passion for what he does. I would highly recommend Dylan to anyone looking for real estate services in the area and look forward to working with Dylan again myself.
