Client Testimonials

Bob & Selina Lochead, Orillia

We moved back to Orillia from BC and used Roy Micks to help us relocate. We flew back in September for five days to look at real estate. He paid attention to exactly what we were looking for and set up showings very quickly. He also put in the effort to contact people who were potentially interested in selling. With his longterm familiarity with the area, he was able to inform us of future developments or changes that would affect our property

Dianne Evans, Orillia

I wish to take this opportunity to thank you so very much for the professionalism you have shown from our first interview to the day you brought me that wonderful gift basket of treats.I have no hesitation whatsoever in singing your praises as a top flight real estate agent. You kept me appraised throughout the entire process in order that I was always aware of what was happening at any given time

Mike & Guy Levac, Ottawa

Extremely Satisfied! It was a big challenge for us to even think of selling our late brother's house, let alone looking after the place and doing so from five hours away. Roy was recommended by a friend and came over and properly evaluated the house, walking us through the steps and reassuring us every step of the way. We were only able to list the house November 25th and were worried that we had little time before the quiet Christmas period. Within three days we had two serious offers. Roy guided us through the process and within the week an offer was accepted. We have no hesitation recommending Roy and the Micks team.

I have recently had the opportunity to work with Roy and Mackenzie on both the sale of my old and purchase of my new home.  What I thought was going to be a stressful process, turned out to be a great experience.  Roy walked me through every step of selling the house, was there anytime I had a question and regularly followed up with me throughout the whole process.  Mackenzie spent many hours helping me find the perfect house.  He is very knowledgeable and was always there to offer his opinion and answer my questions.  Thank you for all the time and effort you both put in to helping me sell and find my new home, I couldn't be happier.  I highly recommend 'Team Micks' !!!

Kim Varey

As a first time seller and second time buyer I was very fortunate to have chosen TeamMicks for my real estate needs.  Both Roy and Mackenzie were very professional and really made my experience as smooth as possible.  While searching for homes, Roy was very patient and accommodating for home viewings and really got to know what I was searching form.  Once I found the right home for me, Roy and Mackenzie were efficient and organized to get my house on the market and sold quickly.  I think what impressed me the most was the reassurance that Roy was able to give me on a number of occasions and was always reachable and approachable. I highly recommend TeamMicks for all your buying and selling needs! Thank you, TeamMicks!

Hermoine Nielsen and Matt van Hoof

Once we decided to move to Orillia – something we’d been considering for a number of years – it was important to find a real estate agent familiar with the town. We were fortunate to receive a referral for Roy Micks to act on our behalf.  With each house he presented to us, in addition to the listing sheet, he provided information about the builder, the neighbourhood and the market value of homes in the area.  This was important when we moved forward with an offer. His knowledge of Orillia as a lifetime resident was very helpful. Now we have a beautiful home which we are excited about making our own!  Even after the offer was negotiated and accepted, Roy remained dedicated to helping us negotiate the final steps of the buying process. We’re happy to recommend Roy as an experienced and helpful agent in purchasing a new home.

Bill & Birgitta

Roy & Mackenzie, As we settle into our new home, we wanted to take a minute to thank you for assisting us in fulfilling our dream. After 45 years in the same house, we were hesitant and it seemed like a tremendous task to get ready to enter the market. You came highly recommended Roy and after your initial visit we felt more confident and had a plan for next steps. You provided a calm presence as well as timely and continually sound advice and reassurance throughout the process. Your team is very professional, have great patience and always available to answer questions. We loved the update emails from Mackenzie showing the progress on our property. We are very grateful to team Micks in all respects and will highly  recommend your services and expertise.


Roy and Mackenzie Micks are friendly and professional. I've successfully bought and sold houses with Roy's expert advice. Mackenzie is a great addition to Team Micks. It was a pleasure to deal with them on the recent purchase of my new home. I have every confidence in Roy and Mackenzie and will no doubt do business with them in the future.  

Deb Stephens and David Grass

Hi Roy I just wanted to thank you for the great job you did selling our home recently.  You have been patiently working with us over the past three years helping us negotiate this next chapter of our lives as we downsize and relocate. In your interactions with us,  you were professional, personable and your marketing strategy was successful . We found that you were readily available to meet with us as needed which we really appreciated. Having   had you as our agent  to sell an earlier home we owned  we are so glad we brought you back to sell our current house.  I would not hesitate to strongly recommend you as an agent here in Orillia.

Doug and Robin West

In the last few months , we were involved in three real estate transactions with Roy. Over several months of communication with him, he was consistently an impressive professional. Roy’s feedback to us was always immediate! This prompt service is so important in this field. Roy has a broad knowledge of the industry and we, as both purchaser and vendor, feel that we benefitted from his strong and vast experience. He always communicated with us in a professional yet friendly manner. He provided us with advice that we didn’t hesitate to accept and this all played out to our advantage. In short, Roy Micks earned our greatest respect! We would clearly give him our highest recommendation.

Anita and Ted Burke

We first met Roy a few years ago when our daughter was selling her house in Orillia.  The one real estate professional that consistently brought clients to view her home was Roy Micks.  When she moved back to Orillia , Roy was the first person she called and with his help is now happily settled in her lovely home. Recently we decided to sell our home in Severn and move to Orillia so there was no question, we called Roy Micks (now Team Micks,  with Mackenzie Micks. We are pleased to have had the benefit of two professionals that in a matter of a few days found us a beautiful home in Orillia and just the right buyer for our home in Severn.  Roy and Mackenzie are solid, friendly, knowledgeable professionals who guided us seamlessly through the process of buying and selling our home and made everything so much easier for us.  Without reservation we are pleased to recommend Team Micks to anyone buying or selling a home.

Lorrie and Charlie

Just a quick note to say thank you for all your help in our recent whirlwind, stress free house sale… It all started when we asked our bank manager for a referral of a good trust worthy realtor and Carol said without a doubt Roy Micks. Our first meeting you gave a price and a timeline, we liked both so we took you up on it. We asked for no sign, minimal disruption and you came through. In less than two weeks are house was sold for exactly what you said it was worth. All our meetings were on time and weekly follow up until close was a nice touch. We’ve since moved and we have already referred you to a couple of our old neighbors.

Lisa and Martino DiSabatino

Roy is the epitome of what a real estate agent should be. Roy truly is a class act and exceeded all our expectations. Roy’s patience and long time relationship with us paid off, as we started this journey with Roy back in 2010! We were always looking and had never listed! We just finally listed and sold our home in a little over a month and for our asking price! Thank you for making our dreams come true, it was worth the wait! Fantastic job! We would highly recommend Roy!

Gill Tillmann

There is absolutely no way I would buy or sell real estate without Roy Micks as my agent! Roy is experienced, knowledgeable, and the hardest working guy I know. In fact, Roy’s picture should be beside the word “integrity” in the dictionary. Roy is an upstanding guy who understands the value of his word. If Roy says he is going to do something, it will get done.

Chris Long

I wanted to reach out to you to provide some feedback on my recent experience in working with you to find our dream home on Lake Couchiching in Orillia. At times, I find myself frustrated and disappointed in dealing with various contractors, retailers and professionals, so I feel it is important to recognize the times when I (we) are delighted in our business dealings. I suppose our experience started positively through the confidence we felt from you in understanding our objectives as well as your market knowledge. We set very high expectations and added a number of challenges to our search criteria. You handled each of these with absolute professionalism. Throughout this exciting yet difficult process, you communicated with us consistently and in a timely manner providing progress updates and any anticipated obstacles. This approach, prevented us from feeling pressured or with a lack of needed information. All in all, our experiences in working with you on our home search (and the needs of my mother and a sibling) have been thoroughly positive and rooted in your professionalism and business integrity. Jill and I would not hesitate recommending you to any/all of our friends and family that are in need of a real estate professional. Keep it up Roy! Success is a wonderful thing!

Alf and Bev. Cowling, Bracebridge, Ontario

Working with Roy Micks on the recent successful sale of our home and purchase of a new home was an absolute pleasure. Roy was professional but also personal, extremely knowledgeable and a skilled negotiator. He handled our endless questions with patience and went above and beyond to find answers and solutions. We were impressed with Roy’s ability to interact with us with energy and guidance but without pressure. He is committed to his clients and we are more than happy to recommend Roy to anyone.

Jason Wiles

I recently used Roy Micks for the sale of my house in Orillia. The house required many repairs before i put it on the market. Roy consulted with me on the repairs and proper value that each would bring to the property. He also provided a list of reputable contractors in the area that could assist with the work. During the renovations he would stop in and check on the contractors and work being performed to ensure things were moving along. When it came down to negotiating the sale, Roy provided valuable market information and helped get my the best price possible. I would definitely use Roy again.

Shawn Heitzner

When my wife Randy-Lynn and I discussed selling our home out in the country to move into town, we both agreed we wanted someone that we trusted, someone that would be honest and represent our best interests moving forward. We chose Roy Micks of Remax to both sell and purchase our new home. We were extremely happy with both the sale and purchase! Randy-Lynn and I were unsure about the market at the time of our sale and Roy was instrumental in educating us, taking the time to provide examples of similar homes recently sold in our area and answering any questions we had. We relied heavily upon his advice and opinion, we really trusted him especially as he became more familiar with our persona, likes, dislikes and needs. Roy always followed through with his promises and we found he was always willing to go out of his way to show us a house. We asked a ton of questions and he was very happy to answer them every single time without hesitation, or complaints and gave us very appropriate responses and explanations. When he was selling our home, he was in constant contact with us, providing updates and keeping us informed. Yes we would use Roy again for sure! His strong communication skills, knowledge and experience were evident throughout the process. Randy-Lynn and I both felt comfortable with his advice while we were selling and buying our new home. I would recommend Roy to any of our friends or family who are either selling or buying!

Since 2011, I have had the pleasure of working with Roy Micks of Remax Orillia Realty. Over the past five years, I have sold three properties and purchased two others. These transactions ranged from average to very high value properties located in Orillia, Barrie and Ramara. Regardless of the value or location, the high quality of service from Roy was consistent. Roy is a professional. Whether viewing a property, writing/analyzing offer sheets or valuating price, his attention to detail is outstanding. Once an offer is accepted, his follow-up service is exceptional as he leads assistance with the municipality, lawyers, surveyors, inspector’s ad future vendors. He is a true partner. He has tremendous knowledge of current market conditions and is a strong negotiator resulting in my confidence that we always sold or bought at the right price. Roy is a competitor with unlimited drive and enthusiasm to close on the right property at the right price. Recently, we viewed over twenty properties, each meeting our buying priorities but seemingly not just right. Roy continued to work diligently until he found us the perfect home, the one that felt ours as soon as we entered. I would strongly recommend Roy Micks as your realtor and partner if you are selling or buying property in the County of Simcoe.


I had the pleasure of working with Roy to purchase my home. He made everything simple and stress-free. All questions and concerns were answered without hesitation. I would strongly recommend Roy to anyone looking for a new home! Great experience!

Myrna and Ted Carter

Ted and I wish to express our sincere thanks to you and your staff for your help with the recent sale of our home in Severn. We appreciate the way you kept us informed and, when we called you with questions, you always returned our calls promptly, answered those questions and offered suggestions to help with the process. Selling a home, as you know, is very stressful, especially for those of us over 70. Thanks to your help and encouragement, that stress level remained much lower than it has ever been with the sale of other real estate in the past. I am happy to report that we are now happily settled in our new home and feel that we have definitely made the right decision for us. Having worked so successfully with you, we would not hesitate to recommend you to friends or family who plan to re-locate. Thanks again and enjoy the rest of your summer.


Roy, thank you so very much for looking after the sale of my home! Your professionalism is to be commended! I would highly recommend you to potential clients!

Brent and Sandra Downer

Recently, we made the difficult decision to sell our family home and, with Roy’s guidance, were fortunate to be able to find and purchase a new property suited perfectly for our family needs. Being a client of Roy’s meant that details in this life changing process were addressed fully and that all of our concerns and questions were answered promptly and completely. Roy has thorough knowledge about the real estate industry and trends in the Orillia area that he serves. We are repeat clients of Roy as we are completely confident in his ability to deliver us the property we desire, while at the same time selling our home in a stress free, well informed manner. We recommend Roy to our friends and family whenever they are looking for professional and courteous real estate service.
