Jim Marshall

With almost four decades of experience, I have been your trusted real estate companion in Parry Sound since 1985. My intricate comprehension of our neighbourhood’s every nook and cranny, the lakes, and the nearby communities is my secret sauce in providing invaluable insights to my clients. My knowledge and network are available, from vacant lots to waterfront cottages, from first homes to forever homes.

While real estate is my calling, my heart belongs to my family. My wife, Kim, has been my rock for over 33 years, and together we’ve seen our three sons grow into fine men. The family’s latest addition, our granddaughter Sophia, has filled our lives with renewed joy. Our Portuguese Waterdog, Mac, completes our picture. Despite my packed schedule, I never miss a chance to explore the beautiful Parry Sound with them, whether aboard our boat in the summer or travelling.

My roots in the community run deep. From being the Chair of our local Museum Board and the vice-chair of the Parry Sound Library to serving the Humphrey-Rosseau-Chistie Planning Board in the 90s, I’ve worn many hats. More recently, I completed a 4-year term as a Councillor for the Town of Parry Sound and led the Parry Sound Real Estate Board and the Canadian Real Estate Association’s MLS® and Technology Committee.

Music is my solace. The piano, guitar, and bass are my companions. My love for music remains unchanged, from jamming in local bands during high school to jamming on Saturday nights in Orrville with other music enthusiasts.

10 Quick Facts About Me:

  • The second of four siblings.
  • I've seen Neil Young live in concert four times.
  • I started in real estate at 20 and never looked back.
  • A hopeless Toronto Maple Leafs fan with unwavering faith in their cup-winning ability.
  • I visited every Canadian province except Saskatchewan.
  • Traced my lineage back over 1,000 years.
  • Avid reader, 63 books in 2019 alone.
  • Bought my first house at 22 for a mere $23,500. ($141 per month mortgage payment).
  • My first car was a 1971 Cutlass Supreme.
  • I almost reached the provincial championship round with my high school’s Reach for the Top team in 1983.


My partner and I reached out to Jim through his on line presence, after months of watching the cottage market throughout the province. From the initial contact we felt at ease, that we were working with a dedicated professional who had excellent knowledge of the area/lakes we were interested in and gave us sound advice based on our wish list and our budget.

He was a steady hand as we navigated all the steps towards finding, offering on and closing the purchase of a wonderful property that was absolutely what we had been searching for all those months. Thanks, Jim, it was truly a pleasure working with you and we are very grateful to have had your expertise.
