Your North Life, created by the Barrie & District Association of REALTORS®, is a new online platform for all things real estate, lifestyle, and relocation in the Greater Simcoe Muskoka Region, inspiring businesses and individuals to move North, embrace local, and engage in their communities!
As Realtors®, we are fully committed to our communities, every day helping people and families not only find their home but build their lives. It’s not about the house or condo, it’s about finding your dream home, where to spend time with family and friends, where to shop and eat local, and how to experience everything that our region has to offer.
YourNorthLife.ca was created to improve the home buying and selling experience while highlighting the lifestyle, people, culture, and environment that is distinctly North Life. The website features neighbourhood profiles, real estate listings, local stories, and a shop local businesses directory. Each listing provides information on schools, parks and recreation centers, and transit options available in that neighbourhood in addition to all the standard home features.
"I think it's a really innovative site that gives people a good understanding of the area and a great feel of life up here. It's easy to navigate and packed with helpful information and resources."
- Aleksandra Dimitrijevic, BDAR Realtor®
The name and brand were created to represent the harmonized blend of urban, rural, waterfront and seasonal properties, along with the exclusive lifestyle that the greater Simcoe Muskoka region has to offer. It also speaks to the wide market coverage that BDAR Realtors® serve.
We are selling homes by celebrating our communities and this launch is just the beginning as we grow our content by collaborating with businesses, journalists, and other creatives to help share the amazing stories of people who live in, work in, and love the Simcoe Muskoka region.
“Simcoe and Muskoka regions are one of the most beloved places in Canada! Those of us that live here know the amazing treasure we have here... But how can we convince others who have not experienced the area to move here? I think once they embrace the story, seeing themselves as part of a combined narrative they are more attracted to the possibility of making the move. They are inspired to move.”
- Chad Ballantyne, Rhubarb Media
People want to be a part of a great story and it’s a time for businesses to connect with their potential new clients at this level. Celebrating our region is the common element behind all of our efforts and when our region is thriving, so are our small businesses, local companies, and residents.
We hope all North Life citizens will share this vision of what Your North Life can and will become with the support of our community.
