Hi, I’m Lenore Inniss, your Muskoka cottage REALTOR with Johnston & Daniel Rushbrooke Realty in Port Carling, Ontario!

With a background in sales and marketing and a previous life as a photographer, I found my calling in the world of real estate. My journey began when Catharine, now my valued partner in this venture, brought me on board to merge my marketing skills with her cottage sales experience.

Muskoka holds a special place in my heart. Growing up, I spent my summers at a Muskoka cottage, and created some of the best memories of my young life. Now I’m thrilled to help others have a chance to create their own cherished memories in this remarkable area.

I handle the tech side of things in our partnership, from online marketing to keeping us ahead of the curve with the latest trends. My real estate partner Catharine, a true people-person, takes the rein on sales (although I jump in too).

Beyond my time spent out on the lakes selling real estate, you’ll find me outdoors, exploring Muskoka with my two amazing rescue dogs Ivan and Olivia. Camping, hiking, and discovering new corners of the world are right up my alley – I’ve been lucky enough to explore quite a few countries so far.

When it comes to real estate, my philosophy is simple: honesty, integrity, and positivity. I believe in finding the best solutions for everyone involved, and I’ve even referred away clients to ensure a fair deal.

In addition to my real estate work, I proudly serve as the Vice Chair of Friends of the Muskoka Watershed, a charity dedicated to utilizing science to find solutions for the threats facing Muskoka’s watershed. It’s a cause close to my heart, and I’m committed to contributing positively to ensure future generations can enjoy the Muskoka I know and love.

Let’s connect and make your Muskoka dreams a reality. Whether you’re hunting for the perfect cottage or saying goodbye to a beloved family property, I’ll be here for you every step of the way.
