Hi – I’m Karl Hannan, your local real estate agent in the Southern Georgian Bay Area. I spent my youth rambling around the hills near Blue Mountain attending High School in Stayner and enjoying the lifestyle our area has to offer, skiing at Blue Mountain, swimming at Wasaga Beach and fishing in the local rivers and streams.
After studying economics in Vancouver I returned to Ontario and worked in the computer networking industry, as a Sales Professional in Sales Management.
When I met my wife Julia, I moved to the UK where we developed residential and commercial property along with Julia’s Daycare business.
When returning to Canada, Julia and I decided to settle back in Collingwood for the small community atmosphere and healthy lifestyle for our children and ourselves.
I built my own luxury chalet near the Blue Mountain Resort and ran a successful renovation and property management company and have owned several residential and commercial properties. I have negotiated residential and commercial leases, managed commercial and residential property.
I am active in the community as a member of the Optimist club and as a volunteer in Children’s sports.
As your Real Estate agent, I bring to you a breadth of knowledge and understanding of the area and property market that is one of the best in the area. My expertise will not find you a house but will discover your new home.
What did you do before real estate?
I have a varied background from selling computer networks and security to property development and construction.
What do you love about being a REALTOR?
I enjoy helping people make one of the most important decisions in their life… buying a home. I take a personal ownership with every buyer or seller I work with.
