What clients say

Read what people have to say about dealing with Max and James for their real estate needs:

It’s been a wonderful experience working with Max and Tammy. They are both professionals and seem to love their work. They managed to get our house sold and now helping us find a new home. They always kept us informed every step of the way. They are a fun couple. We hope we don’t have to move again for awhile, but if we do we will definitely be using this company again..and Max if he has not retired. We most definitely recommend them.

June Gulley

Max Hahne recently represented our family on a long, complicated but ultimately successful cottage purchase. Max’s knowledge, integrity and patience helped us on our journey to separate what was important from what was not. Regular, down to earth communications is at the heart of Max’s sales process and made him a trusted partner to our family. Would not think twice about recommending or partnering with Max.
Michael Gagnon

Max Hahne has been our agent for the recent sale of two rental properties in the Georgian Bay area. In each case we found that Max looks carefully, listens to our concerns and offers excellent advice on how best to proceed. Without a doubt Max is both efficient and very professional.
Rita and Elton Matthews

I found my experience with Engel & Volkers and Max, as short as it was (a good thing when your house is on the market!), to have been very positive from top to bottom. No fuss, no muss, always moving forward with a great outcome.
The focus was kept to selling the house and the best way to go about it.
All good! I would definitely recommend the whole group to anyone.
Marlene Pynn

I highly recommend Max Hahne as a real estate agent. Max is professional, explains the process in detail and is available 7 days per week.

Pierre Marcoux

Our experience working with Max was a very good one indeed. His no-nonsense approach alleviated any stress we were feeling, and his vast experience in the industry and vast knowledge of a large geographic area provided us with the confidence that we would find our dream home. Max was extremely patient and allowed us to navigate our way as we asked a million questions and viewed several homes. When it came down to negotiations he was stellar in strategically placing our offer and with so much integrity. If you’re looking for an exceptional realtor who will get it done, Max is your guy!

Raven Murphy

Great experience. Thanks so much for helping us find our dream home Max.

Max was a great advisor and guided us through the buying process patiently and professionally. I would highly recommend Max.

Joanne Devaney

I have known Max for a long time, he helped me with a real estate transaction back in ’89, so when the time came to sell another property, he was the first realtor I thought about contacting and he was there for me right away. He is very knowledgeable and was a great support throughout the entire sales process. I was very comfortable dealing with him and would certainly recommend him to anyone that is looking to buy or sell in the area.
Dorothy Marshall

Max was very pleasant to work with. He sold my property in one day. I am happy with the way he and his team assisted with the transaction and would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a great and reliable real estate agent.
Kevin R.

I found that Max and his team were very professional and knew the market very well. They always considered what was best for me. They spoke from the heart and talked with factual information vs. Hearsay. A great team to have on your side working for you.
Frank Say

We are very pleased with Engel & Volkers selling our home. They handled the showings in a very professional and safe manor. Their signs are very professional and stand out, and our marketing brochure was beautiful. We highly recommend the team at Engel & Volkers Collingwood.
Laurie Blair

Dealing with Max at E & V has been fantastic. A responsive team of professionals who are both fair and protective of their clientele is exactly what you need when selling your home. Can’t thank them enough for working with us through all of the Covid madness and landing a successful sale.
Ahmad Issawi

After a very long and frustrating real estate journey, we were so glad to have found Max (who we have dubbed: “the Magician”!) We are so thankful to have worked with such an experienced, knowledgeable, and professional realtor… with such extensive connections and marketing savvy that there were 7 (!) showings the day after his listing went live, and two offers the day after that. ?We felt so relieved to be in such good hands, particularly when it came to negotiating (even when a “surprise” was thrown our way, Max was ALL over it, and the deal was finalized within a few short hours.) We are BEYOND thrilled, and so are the new owners!
We have interacted with many realtors in the area (with this house, and others over the years) and would not hesitate to recommend Max Hahne.
Dr. Kristina Dervaitis

Aug 7, 2020 – Max Hahne helped us list and sell our home, as well as purchase a new home. He gave us sound advice and was a steadying influence during the ups and downs of the showing and sale process. He both advertised and did a live Facebook walkthrough. At the point of making and accepting offers and closing the deal, he is at his best as his years of experience show through with flying colours!
Tim Weichel

Max & Tam genuinely cared about me, and finding the right person for my beautiful home. Their reach and network was beyond most local Realtors, so everything happened very fast. This was an emotional move for me, but Max & Tam made it much easier than I anticipated. I recommended them to my neighbour, who also had a pleasant experience. They are down to Earth and lovely to deal with.
Cynthia Schultz

Thank you Max for getting my house sold so quickly! I am so grateful to have you as an agent. I am very impressed how you and your team perform – with great expertise and professionalism. Also thank you for arranging complimentary access to MoveSnap to help me to manage all the aspects of moving. I hope to find my new home with you soon. I will not hesitate to recommend you and your firm to my friends and colleagues. Thanks again. I am very impressed!
Lucyna Rozanski

Over the years working with Max I found him to be professional, honest, knowledgeable and responsive. I highly recommend Max and his team for your house sale or purchase.
Karen Weaver

My husband and I have been dealing with Max Hahne since 2004. He has been our long time trusted Broker. We would recommend him as he his highly informative and knows his business!
A big thank you to Max and Engel and Voelkers on our recent sale.
Al and Brenda Mueller

Max is the man !!
He has an astute understanding of both the psychological and analytical skills to maximize price advantage for his clients. He is strongly committed to his clients and will save them significant money. All too often, emphasis is placed on closing the sale with greed, fear and urgency tactics rather than enhancing the financial interests of the client. Should not cost or selling price be the priority for you? Thank you Max.”
Brian Whiston

Max was very helpful and attentive from the beginning of my house selling experience. He made himself available whenever I needed reassurance and advice. He went out of his way to make me feel comfortable with both selling my home and finding a new one. I would recommend Max and Engel Volkers very highly to my friends.
Louise Tatham

Max partnered with us for the sale of our 22 acre Muskoka island property. It was not an easy sell and he ended up being our agent for four years! In the end, it was his excellent advice that helped us to close on the sale of the property. If we hadn’t, the sale would still be in limbo (1 1/2 years later). We can’t thank him and his partner Shawn Woof at Sotheby’s enough for all their hard work to find us the right buyers and to bring the sale to a successful close.

Max has become such a trusted and respected colleague over the last 1 1/2 years. I chanced upon Engel and Volkers, by accessing a property listing on line. Max called me one Saturday morning, introduced himself and unobtrusively and professionally offered to represent my interests in the realty world as I sought a property in the Collingwood area. He has been accessible, warm, honest, committed and gone above and beyond in our search. We have felt so advocated for by Max as a realtor. He knows the industry intimately well, and you grow to completely trust him, as he shares with you details of property purchase and nuances you could not have known. Max is affable, full of wit, raw truthful and never leads you down a path of poor choice. Max respects the money you have spent a lifetime earning and wants you to move forward with no regrets. There was never a moment where I felt pressured to commit to anything but my gut feeling about a property; Max never imposed his. I have had interactions with him late at night, early in the am, and through weekends, as he puts his clients interests often before his own needs for time away from the business of real estate. The portal he created for me, was rich with opportunity, and prompted a significant number of showings. Max and I both know that this property is start my launch point, and it may or may not be the legacy property that I end up spending the rest of my life on. What I do know beyond a shadow of a doubt however, is that Max and I will work together with the Engel and Volkers family for the rest of my life. If I move this property, or several in the future, if I have peers searching in the area, if my contractor colleagues are seeking advice, or if I want someone great to bounce ideas off of during my build in terms of realty wisdom; I will call Max. I am grateful for him and Tammy in our lives.
Dr. Barb Matthews

Max is a true professional and was extremely helpful all along the process of selling our home. He did a fantastic job of marketing our property and gave us solid advice along the way. In the end, we achieved our goals of market value and are now able to relocate back to the Kitchener area to be close to family. Thank you Max and team for your help!
Tony & Judy Stryker

We are glad that we worked with Engel & Völkers and Max Hahne for the purchase of our vacation property / chalet in Collingwood.
Max, our realtor, made the whole experience seamless. His deep knowledge of Collingwood and network of professionals (i.e lawyers, tradesmen, etc.) really made the end to end process easy. The one thing we appreciated most about Max, was his honesty and candor. He was our sounding board throughout the process and provided valuable advice throughout.
Ethan P.

Max, I wanted to take this time to thank you for directing us to use the services of James for the sale of our cottage. From our first meeting I felt that James, and your firm, would provide us with the most relevant representation in the sale of the cottage. All three of my siblings agreed with this decision.

James greeted me with a friendly, outgoing demeanor and expressed himself clearly and with confidence. He provided excellent suggestions throughout the process and calmly discussed any concerns identified by us or by the Glassers. He was easy to contact and always got back to me without delay if and when I left messages either by phone or email. These are important considerations to me thus I was quite impressed by his actions. I will be sending a separate email to James acknowledging how we felt about his handling of the sale of the cottage.

There is one further point I would like to express to you personally. One of the major reasons I selected your firm evolved from the fact that you remained in touch with me every couple of months. Whether it was to showcase future developments in the Collingwood area with which your firm was involved, or just for the purpose of expressing best wishes at Christmas or other special occasions, you always managed to ‘stay in touch without being overtly aggressive’ . Thank you for taking that approach!

I wish you and your family the best of luck during these unsettling times; may you all maintain good health!.

It was truly a pleasure working with Max. He is very professional, efficient and gets the job done! We had a very difficult property to sell, and were grateful for the attention that brought a quick sale.
Yvonne, Collingwood

Max congratulations on opening your second office. I know you will do well as our experience with you as our realtor was nothing short of exceptional. Your web connections and guidance in selling our homes was outstanding. You are one of the most knowledgeable and professional realtors in the business.
Rex & Joan Waylen, Collingwood

It is with pleasure that I write a note of support for Max Hahne and his team. We worked with Max and Tammy when we bought both of our houses in the area. Both times we have found them to be efficient, knowledgeable and attentive but above and beyond they are friendly and enjoyable to be around. They take all of the stress out of house hunting with their easy-going demeanor! Both experiences with them were smooth and quick and we managed to find the perfect house in our ideal price range each time. I would highly recommend their exceptional service!
Alyssa Boyd

My husband and I recently purchased a waterfront property with the support of our agent Max Hahne of Engel and Volkers. We greatly appreciated his professionalism and guidance. Max and his team did a wonderful job of keeping us informed and providing assistance with each step of the buying process. We recommend anyone looking for real estate services to Engel and Volkers. From our initial conversation to his “congratulations” on our purchase, Max’s hard work made our dream possible.
Joyce and Art Trotta

Chris and I would like to thank you for your assistance with our last real estate transactions in listing and successfully selling our last home, and then acquiring the new property nearby to allow us to construct our new home. Your advice in selling our home was strategically appropriate due to its unique qualities and we are pleased with how the sale transaction was completed. And the same can be said for the negotiations in purchasing the new property. No plans to relocate at the moment but we will not hesitate to be in touch when we need your assistance again.
Chris and John Stark

I have known Max, and his wife Tammy, for over 10 years. They helped my wife and I purchase a home in the Collingwood area in 2005. Since then they have helped our family buy and sell a number of additional properties from our portfolio. I have also worked with Max to market international real estate to my high net worth client base. They are both extremely knowledgeable about the markets they deal in and assist their clients in an efficient and personable manner. It has been a real pleasure dealing with them both over the past decade.
N. Gregory McNally

The real estate market was flat in 2023, with reportedly the fewest number of homes sold in 20 years.  It was a very stressful time to have our beloved family home up for sale.  We were disappointed on several fronts and very discouraged.

Then, Max Hahne of Engel & Volkers took us under his wing. He inspired confidence with his warm manner and vast experience in real estate. With Max, we got the clear and consistent communication that we needed – essentially on a daily basis – as we moved steadily forward to the successful sale of our home within 3 months in the spring of 2024.  

Without question, I highly recommend Realtor Max Hahne  for his experience, communication skills and integrity.  

Barb Crago

Max came to us under very difficult circumstances. He immediately took charge being reassuring and at the same time realistic.

When I emailed or phoned, Max would almost always respond IMMEDIATELY.  He never wavered with his positivity!

Max is a professional in every sense of the word. His negotiating skills are terrific! And most of all he “gets the job done”!

Never was Max too busy to speak to us or help us. When it came to closing he was transparent & efficient.

We are very fortunate and thankful to have had Max Hahne as our realtor.

Bert Crago

James helped us find out the value of our property. He listed, and sold it very quickly. We have been extremely happy. His professionalism is impeccable. His honesty, integrity and personal attention is why we would definitely use him again. Thank you James.
Stephanie Marshall Lozon

James McGregor was very professional, knowledgeable and eager to implement any of our suggestions. Moreover he was sensitive to our desire to be patient and find the right buyer who would appreciate our natural retreat as much as we had. We did not feel any pressure from James and he was very supportive throughout the process.
We would unreservedly recommend James to anyone that may be looking at buying or selling in the Grey Bruce area.
Aubrey & Cheryl Ferguson

James went above and beyond my expectations. I was having a really hard with the local Sauble Beach agents, and thankfully found James to sell our high end summer home in Sauble Beach. James works in and is from the Grey Bruce area.
Lisette Stolp

James was excellent to work with and helped us find and then act on our dream home. Never once pushy, I would recommend him every time.
Jeremy Robichaud

James was an absolute pleasure to work with and was very responsive in getting our property listed ahead of schedule and stick handling an early offer through to a very quick sale and closing. Thanks James!
Mike Lawrance

Fantastic experience working with James! He went above and beyond our expectations to help us sell our home. If he’s not your realtor yet, get on it!
Jessica Doig

James worked very diligently on the sale of my late mother’s house. He was always available for advice and assistance. His professionalism was evident from the moment we first met. It was a pleasure to have him as our agent.
Bill Moran

Alexa and I can not say enough positive things about James. James was our backbone during this process and was always available for our numerous calls and texts to answer any lingering questions we had. James offered valuable insight on our search for our dream home and provided different strategic approaches on how to secure our home even in a competitive bid situation. We would highly recommend James for any real estate needs! Thanks for your help!
Travis Dodd

James assisted in making my initial home purchase a successful and painless process. He offered prompt service and sound local market knowledge. I would recommend James to any future clients looking at buying or selling in the area!
Calvin Peters

My family can now breathe much easier knowing the sale is firm. It is especially comforting to know that our dear parents would have been very satisfied that their cottage, which was such a special haven for them, and which my brothers and our father took great pride in building, has been passed on to a young family which will hopefully begin again the cycle of experiencing wonderful lifetime memories on Georgian Bay. Thank you for your guidance and sage advice in making this happen
Fran Sutherland

James thank you so much, It took at least 30 viewings for us to find that one we wanted. Thank you for sticking with us. You’re awesome. We wish the best for you.
Bob and Carole McArthur

We had James as our realtor and he was fantastic!! So helpful from start to finish and was always a text or phone call away. We highly recommend him!!
Rebecca Burdan

James went over and beyond of our expectation helping us to find our new home. He is knowledgeable, passionate, and resourceful. I recommend James as a Professional Realtor to anybody who wants to buy/sell or simply move to Grey/Bruce Owen Sound! Thanks James.
Sassan Azad

We tried for months to sell our home privately and were unsuccessful. James sold our home within a few weeks! Great person to work with, highly recommend him to anyone wanting to sell their home or purchase a new one.
Jessica Doig

James is a true professional and a pleasure to deal with, thanks James 🙂
Reid Middlebro

James, on behalf of myself, my siblings and their partners, I would like to take the time to express our thanks to you on the recent sale of our family cottage. During the entire process you never showed angst or concern as to how the sale was progressing. You expressed yourself clearly and with confidence as you provided us with sound guidance over the past few months. Your sense of humour (not everyone laughs so easily at my jokes), was appreciated, as was your level of confidence in dictating that, ‘the market would determine the appropriate selling price’, so we should not be overly concerned if there were not a large number of offers put forward.
I also appreciate the fact that you were easily reached and were expedient in returning my calls or messages. We worked well together and, as a result, were able to satisfy the concerns/demands of the purchasers and their lawyer and the cottage has sold.
James, it was a real pleasure working with you. You provided us with exemplary service and assisted us in keeping our stress level under control; not an easy task on most days. Thank you.
