Client Testimonials

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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 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.

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!

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.

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.

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!
