A NOTE FROM THE EDITORS

Summer – the time of year we all dream about! When the weather gets beautiful, everyone seems to smile more. I’m certainly looking forward to getting out with my family to experience the joys the season brings.

Todd Adair*

President Sales Representative

Our Summer Toronto Collection certainly has you covered on that front: whether you look at the clear skies as the perfect time to tackle renovations (we’ve got info on the place to shop for materials, and an ally to spruce up your wine cellar); are looking to experience some new, fine Italian cuisine in Little Italy (say hello to Il Covo); or just can’t wait to get out on the lake (but want advice on which boat is right for you). Of course, let’s not forget all the great real estate across Toronto and Muskoka!

I’m also very excited to share our big news: this summer, we’re opening our Toronto brokerage! My thanks to Steve Haddock – long time resident of Muskoka and Toronto and one of our experienced sales representatives – as he takes on the role of team lead in the big city, bringing the Cayman Marshall real estate model of teamwork to where you live. Happy reading!

GREETINGS TORONTO,

Steve Haddock*

Editor Sales Representative

8 SUMMER 2018 ■

Our significant success in Muskoka in a very short period of time has proven that our state of the art marketing techniques, attention to detail, team approach and superior service to our clients is what sets us apart from all other Brokerages. Those of you fortunate enough to have cottages in Muskoka will no doubt be familiar with us and we hope to bring that same brand recognition to the Toronto market. Our Muskoka Collection magazines can more often than not be found proudly displayed on just about every cottage coffee table located on the major lakes and we hope that trend will continue in the Toronto homes that receive our publication.

On a personal note, I am very excited to be charged with heading our new Toronto Brokerage. Over the years I have followed the Toronto Real Estate market closely as it tends to move in stride with the Muskoka Market. I also currently reside in Rosedale but have owned many properties over the years in Toronto and the GTA and have a strong understanding and knowledge of the various neighbourhoods and what they have to offer. I look forward to serving you in the future and demonstrating the Cayman Marshall Experience. At Your Service!

Osman Gurer is infatuated with wine, but not in an oenophile sense. He has an obsessive devotion to the preservation of wine.

SUMPTUOUS STATEMENT CELLARS FOR YOUR PRIZED WINES By Iris Benaroia

From yachts, restaurants and houses, he creates custom wine cellars and wine cabinets through his company Focus Wine Cellars (FWC). Think state of the art, high-end and stunning spaces with individually cast silver hand sculptures, buttery leather handles, mesmerizing infinity-effect features and supreme production quality.

SUMMER 2018 17 â–


Today, FWC counts the luxury fashion house Louis Vuitton as a client: Gurer’s purpose-built refrigerated cabinets are used to store the label’s perfumes, since fancy fragrances, like wine, need to be kept in a controlled environment. “With each project, I’m trying to amaze people,” says the Turkish-born Gurer, who left a career as an engineer to design bespoke wine cellars. His Oakville, Ont.,-based business is a great distance from Istanbul, where it all began in 1993. Back then, he and his wife, Aylin, ran an interior design firm. The duo was asked to create a wine cellar in a home they were building. Then came another request. And another. Ever the engineer, Osman grew fascinated by the exacting nature of wine cellars, eventually abandoning house design to become the only maker of wine cellars in Turkey. However, he says, “From the very beginning the target was not just to be the only wine cellar designer in Turkey, but rather to be the best in the world.” 18 SUMMER 2018 ■

Today, FWC counts the luxury fashion house Louis Vuitton as a client: Gurer’s purpose-built refrigerated cabinets are used to store the label’s perfumes, since fancy fragrances, like wine, need to be kept in a controlled environment. Printemps, the Parisian department store, only trusts its finest wines to FWC . And there’s a long list of hotel clients, too: among them, the Mandarin Oriental, Hilton and the Waldorf Astoria. For the latter, FWC installed a cellar in its Ithaafushi Hotel, the exclusive, yet-to-be-opened villas in the Maldives. Private wine collectors in China, Dubai, UK and India also rely on FWC cellars to cradle their finest bottles. One such dramatic estate in Hong Kong is featured as the cover of Paolo Basso’s 2015 book Sommeliers’ Heaven: The Greatest Wine Cellars of the World.


With each project, I’m trying to amaze people.

Another cellar sits inside a dwelling atop a hill in Uzbekistan. “Osman travels 250,000 km each year to oversee everything,” says Aylin of her perfectionist husband, joking she’s “his shadow supporter.” (She’s actually head of business development.) Osman’s stickler nature is a good fit in the wine world. Stowing bottles in the wrong conditions can spoil a precious collection – a devastating outcome for connoisseurs who wait years, decades even, to sample certain vintages. “The temperature must be very stable,” says Osman, noting his cellars never fluctuate more than 0.3 degrees centigrade. “Other key conditions include a high but not extreme level of humidity, protection from vibration and unwanted odours and the harmful effects of light.”

Wine-nerd details aside, it’s the look of these cabinets that truly amazes. Forget any basic, under-counter wine fridge you’ve seen in the past. Imagine a brass cabinet in the kitchen to match gold hardware. Or a genuine leather-finished fridge. Or another fronted with zebrawood, like the one recently installed in a beautiful home in Lake Simcoe’s Friday Harbour Resort, with brass finishes and an infinity-effect feature. “Walnut and brass are most popular this year,” says Aylin. “At the Interior Design Show in Toronto, we had samples of finishes and everybody gravitated to those.” If you can afford a hot fridge like this, get it out of the kitchen. One of Osman’s clever designs

There is no company in the world that offers this level of bespoke cabinets. 20 SUMMER 2018 ■

sees a cabinet elegantly tucked between bookcases in a living room. Bespoke also means no boring handles – the door pulls, too, can be customized. Go with oak and leather for a dapper detail, or flashy with an illuminated neon handle. “As far as we know, there is no company in the world that offers this level of bespoke cabinets,” says Aylin. “Customers can change the size or material to their liking. It’s truly up to them.” (Pricing wildly varies, depending on the size, material and complexity of the job.) This means mansion-living isn’t a prerequisite for a solid cellar. “It can be in the basement, the living room or kitchen,” says Osman. “No matter what your square footage, collection size or location of the cellar, we’ll develop a unique design for it.” Osman is up for the challenge. He recalls a complex project in Istanbul. The wine-loving businessman was intent on a walk-in cellar, but there was no room for it in the existing home. “So to create the space for the wine cellar, we got into this enormous endeavour of digging under the swimming pool, which was sitting on a high rampart next to the mansion,” says Osman , noting professional miners were hired for the job.

Whether you go over-the-top or small and modest, an FWC wine cellar has attitude. During the process, the swimming pool had to be kept intact. And space was limited, which meant a tedious process of digging out the cellar by hand, then carrying out the earth in small sacks. Excavation alone took five months. The total duration of the project was seven months, including wine cellar installation. “At the final stage we connected the mansion and cellar with a nice passage,” says Osman . Whether you go over-the-top or small and modest, an FWC wine cellar has attitude. “It is not merely functional,” says Osman, likening it to artwork. “It can exude prestige, style and luxury.” Now that’s a refreshing thought we can all raise a glass to.

Cayman Marshall International Realty Inc., the brokerage that has handled your Muskoka properties for years, is coming to Toronto. Starting this Summer/Fall, Cayman Marshall is opening a new brokerage in the city, ready to handle your quality Toronto property needs. Opening a small real estate brokerage in an established territory is a daunting task. At its worst, it’s an uphill struggle that ends in calamity; but at its best, you have Cayman Marshall International Realty Inc. WRITTEN BY L. RYAN GOBERT

“I BELIEVE OUR

CAYMAN MARSHALL READY FOR TORONTO B RA N D I S

A N D T H AT TO RO N TO I S R E A DY F O R

OUR BRAND” When Todd Adair, owner and president of Cayman Marshall, opened a new business on the banks of Port Carling in Muskoka in 2012 – with the promise of a new brokerage model built on teamwork – the critics scoffed. They couldn’t believe this small band of energetic people would last twelve months, let alone build a successful brand and one of the largest independent brokerages in Ontario. “It’s all about quality people, not quantity,” Todd says. “We work together as a team. We work on listings together, we operate together; we even take a team vacation every year! When you hire one Cayman Marshall agent, you get the whole team.” Their success story speaks for itself: after only six years in business, already Cayman Marshall has consistently doubled its yearly sales, trading more than one billion dollars in

sales since opening its doors, and last year was named “Canada’s Best Real Estate Agency” by the International Property Awards for 2017/18. Now Cayman Marshall is making another big move: straight into the heart of Toronto. “Our plan is to continue to grow throughout Ontario, and Toronto was the first logical step,” Todd says. “Some 70% of our current clients own property in both Muskoka and Toronto. Now, we can service them where they live, as well as where they play.” It may strike some as audacious to move into such a saturated market, but Cayman Marshall’s Toronto team lead, Steve Haddock – a long-time resident of both Toronto and Muskoka, and self-professed “real estate aficionado” – says the team is ready to strut their stuff. “It only took a few short years for us to become

SUMMER 2018 25 ■


one of Muskoka’s top producing real estate brokerages,” Steve says. “I believe our Cayman Marshall brand is ready for Toronto – and that Toronto is ready for our brand.” That brand is Cayman Marshall’s trademark small, cohesive, and dedicated team. Whereas other brokerages force agents to compete against one another, the Cayman Marshall way is to build a unified team spirit, which Steve intends to bring to the Toronto brokerage. “As I build the team, I’ll be looking for a group of skilled agents that complement one another, an effective team that enjoys working together and shares a strong bond.” Through this model, he’s confident they can thrive in the Toronto market, gaining significant market share by replicating and adapting their Muskoka success. Using a state-of-the-art marketing system to match selling clients with eager prospects, Cayman Marshall has earned a reputation as the brokerage that “brings the buyer.” More than 70% of its sales come from its internal database, demonstrating a deep and complex understanding of modern buyers’ needs. “Now that we’re in Toronto’s backyard,” Steve says, “we can bring that same service home.” Steve continues to maintain residences in both Toronto and Muskoka, and has a strong knowledge of both markets, making him the obvious fit to lead up Cayman Marshall’s new team. “It’s very exciting and an honour,” says Steve. “Our team model has generated a lot of buzz, which is following us south to see how it fares in Toronto. I take my role very seriously, and look forward to showing Torontonians just what happens when you put your trust in Cayman Marshall.”

RENOVATION FINDS A HOME: IMPROVE CANADA 28 SUMMER 2018 â–


One of the most daunting aspects of renovating, no matter if it’s a powder room or your whole house, is the sheer volume of the decisions you have to make. Wallpaper or textured paint treatment? Subway tile or glass mosaics? Hardwood or engineered flooring? And how about financing options? Even if you’re working with a designer, the prospect of running around to all those different stores, and somehow making informed choices on items you’ll have to live with for at least the next ten years – and usually, to accomplish it all within a limited time frame – is hard even for seasoned serial renovators. Well, there’s a new local venture that can make at least part of this process easier. Improve Canada, a full-size shopping mall devoted purely to renovation and home improvement, opened last year in Vaughan in a suburban enclave a short hop from the 407 and 401 highways (it’s even accessible by transit), and brings over 350 purveyors of almost every component of renovation under one roof. Theoretically, you could design, purchase, and organize delivery and installation of an entire project in a single day, without ever venturing beyond the mall’s 320,000 sq.ft. premises.

By Martha Uniacke Breen

According to Mary Amini, director of communications (and the proprietor of M Squared Flooring & Design Centre, a flooring specialist in the mall), the enterprise is the brainchild of international developerentrepreneur Oleg Chekhter, following a model that’s been highly successful in Europe and Asia for years, but has never been tried in North America. “Mr. Chekhter selected Vaughan for a number of reasons,”Amini explains. “First, it’s perfectly located within driving distance not only from all over the GTA, but many other southern Ontario communities such as Hamilton, Oshawa, Kingston, and more. And Toronto is really the economic heart of Canada: it’s the most populous region in Canada, and renovation and construction are a major part of the local economy.” From a vendor perspective, it makes sense too, Amini continues. There are other design enclaves in the Toronto area (King Street

East and Castlefield Avenue come to mind), but none come close to the breadth, selection and sheer size of a mall like this. (And, as was clearly demonstrated when we visited on a unseasonably blustery spring day, strolling around an attractive indoor mall beats car-hopping from store to store any day.) “Customers often don’t need just one service, but several,” Amini says, “so for vendors to be able to send customers to each other’s stores in the mall is helpful for all of us, and a real convenience to the consumer.” Improve Canada’s vendors are divided into 32 categories, ranging from real estate and financing to lighting, kitchen and bath, landscaping, windows, roofing, and specialties such as solar panels, home automation, and more. Hallways are laid out geometrically into Manhattan-esque numbered streets and avenues, making it easier to find the store you’re looking for. Space-age touchscreen information towers throughout let you input a given category, and bring up all the vendors in that category and their location in the mall. If that’s still a bit overwhelming, there are also human greeters to help you find which stores you’re looking for, and if needed, actually walk you over there.

Though the bestsellers – kitchen, electronics, windows – are the big draws, what also makes a visit here interesting are the growing number of less expected specialties: to name a few, Vangarde specializes in “customizing” Ikea cabinets and furnishings for a unique look; Harmony for Homes sells a natural wall coating called silk plaster, made from cotton, silk, and other fibres, that mixes with water and can be applied to walls for a textured, stone-like look. And Zenporium offers sculptural furnishings and occasional pieces made from teak tree stumps and other reclaimed or salvaged wood, particularly old fishing boats, still sporting traces of their original paint. One thing you won’t find here is décor stores such as HomeSense or Pottery Barn. “We are not a retail mall, in the normal sense. We are geared to renovation and design, and we offer expertise in that area, rather than retail specialties like décor or furnishings.” In fact, Amini says, expertise is the real draw for Improve Canada, not just for consumers but for professional designers and architects as well. “Every vendor is a specialist in their particular product. I might carry some of the same products

“Customers often don’t need just one service, but several. So for vendors to be able to send customers to each other’s stores in the mall is helpful for all of us, and a real convenience to the consumer.” 30 SUMMER 2018 ■

as a box store, but I have the knowledge and the time to explain to you in depth which products suit your particular situation.” This is particularly important to a professional client such as a designer, whose reputation is on the line if they make the wrong choice for their own client. The focus on expertise and information has inspired mall executive to plan a growing roster of special events and seminars over the coming months, for both consumers and professionals. Along with the onsite Vaughan Home Show in early May, planned events include free Lunch and Learn talks (aimed at a professional audience, though consumers will be welcomed) and a variety of other seminars and conferences. A list of current events can be found on improvecanada.com, along with profiles on vendors, coupons, and informative articles on design and reno subjects. Currently open from Wednesday though Sundays, the mall receives the most traffic on weekends, of course; but Amini points out that scheduling a visit during the week, when it’s less busy, has hidden advantages. “With fewer customers, vendors can spend a lot more time with you – it’s like getting a private consultation, without an appointment.”

THE FOCUS ON EXPERTISE AND INFORMATION HAS INSPIRED MALL EXECUTIVE TO PLAN A GROWING ROSTER OF SPECIAL EVENTS AND SEMINARS OVER THE COMING MONTHS, FOR BOTH CONSUMERS AND PROFESSIONALS.

The mall is still growing, and a number of improvements are planned over the next few months. A new food court will be fully operational by summer, but rather than the typical fast food and pizza chain offerings, it will feature delicious, largely multicultural food options prepared with care – each kiosk is privately owned and operated. A Second Cup coffee shop will launch within the next month. And more special events, including appearances by HGTV and other local and national design celebrities, will help to attract visitors to this new way of planning their next renovation. “The idea is that Improve Canada offers a microcosm of the best design in the area,” says Amini, “without you having to drive all over the city to find it.”

Summertime, and the boating is easy. What isn’t so simple is choosing the right kind of motorcraft to buy. Look to your lifestyle. Are you really into sports, or more relaxed? Interested in sticking to one lake, or exploring some of the quarter-million waterways our province boasts? Maybe you’d like a little bit of everything? Figure that out, and you’re well on your way to finding the ideal vessel. 36 SUMMER 2018 ■

WIDE A-WAKE When it comes to sport boats, the higher and wider the wake, the better. Water sports are now less about skiing and more about tubing and boarding. Coasting up and down the side of waves is where it’s at, whether you’re towing kids in a rubber raft or teenagers jumping about on wakeboards. The very latest trend is out-and-out surfing. Instead of being towed, surfers follow behind a low-speed, big-wake boat, travelling along the curl of its waves at the same rate. According to Joe Donoghue, marketing manager for Pride Marine Group, sport boats, which can range in size from 16 feet to a whopping 40 feet, “are great if you want to go out for a day of active fun.”

The most popular brand they sell, says Donoghue, is Nautique. “It has a reputation for having the best wakes and surf waves.” The Nautique is indicative of how technology is bringing boaters a new level of summer enjoyment. Boats are better built, and designed for more specific functions. They often feature digital dashboards and touchscreen controls; some come with a joystick for easier docking capability. Among Nautique’s many options are phone chargers and videocam mounts, tricked-out towing towers with loudspeakers, large rear-view mirrors and swivelling helm seats, and reversible rear seats, so spotters can watch sportsters in action without getting a crick in their necks.

TAKE A BOW A bow rider is an inboard/outboard motorboat designed for those with a day-tripper mindset. The idea is to just drive somewhere and anchor, enjoy a different view, explore a new space, maybe do a little swimming, skiing or fishing, and bond with family and friends. The vessel’s open front end, the bow, features a circlet of padded seats – great fun for passengers, especially kids and dogs, who like to ride with the wind and spray in their faces. Other available features include state-of-theart sound systems, a range of variable seating configurations, a small swimming platform off the back, folding towing towers, and snap-on shade tops. Some even offer small kitchenettes and expanded under-seat storage. “They’re great all-round boats, designed to run quieter and handle every type of water,” Donoghue says. They range in size from 19 to 35 feet, and there are many brands and models to choose from. But according to Donoghue, Pride Marine Group’s two most popular brands are SeaRay and Chris-Craft. “The SeaRay offers something for everyone. The Chris-Craft is all about luxury; it’s known as the Bentley of boats. It has hand-crafted, custom wood finishes, wooden steering wheels, water-resistant teak decks, corrosion-resistant stainless steel finishes, and pop-up cleats that retract flush to the surface. Everything’s totally refined.”

WE DON’T JUST SELL BOATS. IT’S ABOUT THE LIFESTYLE.

SUMMER 2018 39 ■


CRUISE CONTROL Of course, if you want the ultimate in watercraft status and refinement, you can always get into the true upper class: cruisers and yachts. Here, sizes range anywhere from 28 to 65 feet. In the sport cruiser division, Pride Marina recommends the versatility of the SeaRay Sundancer. But when you’re talking serious luxury, why not splurge on one of SeaRay’s top-of-the-line L-class yachts? Here, you’re given 52 to 65 feet of fully customizable magnificence, with an assortment of deluxe finishes and tons of storage space. Under the deck nestle two to three bedrooms, a kitchen, and a bathroom complete with shower. Up top, there’s second-storey flydeck steering, main-level joystick docking controls, and plenty of loungers and seats, plus an amazing sound system. You could live on these boats – many people do. They’re certainly ideal for overnights and weekending on any one of the Great Lakes or the St. Lawrence Seaway. Even better would be weeks or months away at a time, since for all intents and purposes, they’re the closest thing you can find to a travelling cottage.

PLACE OF PRIDE Dave and Carol Pride loved their new cottage on Lake Muskoka. They just weren’t crazy about the level of service being offered by local marinas. So in 1986, they decided to buy an existing business, and rechristened it Pride of Muskoka Marine. Soon afterward, Dave, a master mechanic, sold his Kitchener-Waterloo auto parts business and permanently relocated their lives to cottage country. Pride Marine began selling boats, and the enterprise took off.

The couple sold the thriving business to their daughter Karen and her husband Paul Nickel in 1994. They, in turn, helped it expand to its present-day 13 locations, most of which also house cottage lifestyle stores selling such summer fun adjuncts as wakeboards, casual clothing and ice cream. As well, the company owns Pride Docking Systems, offering a line of floating and rollup docks. Pride Marine is listed among the top 100 boat dealers in North America, and number one in Canada.

Tyler Nickel, Karen and Paul’s son, now works for the family business as director of sales and marketing. In October, he will be marrying fiancée Christine Kauk, and says that it’s not too early to be thinking about creating a fourth generation that will happily take Pride in their work.

IL COVO: A

escape

VENETIAN I N L I T T L E I TA LY

T BY ALYSSA SCHWARTZ

he exact translation of Il Covo from Italian to English depends on who you ask: most commonly, it means a cave, while others call it a hideaway. According to Ryan Campbell, the chef and co-owner of the new restaurant along College Street in Toronto’s Little Italy that bears the term as its name, the interpretation also carries something inherently more convivial. “In a nutshell, Il Covo is a meeting point, a place for people to gather for a dining experience,” says Campbell, an alum of Toronto’s perennially hot Buca and Buca Yorkville. “The name is kind of up for interpretation, depending on context. My partner Giuseppe [Marchesini, who helmed Buca’s wine program], who’s Italian, takes it a step further and says it’s a meeting place for ones alike; but it’s really a place for people to gather and enjoy and take it easy.” With its long, dim dining room, lined with a tufted banquette hidden behind a bar area, and seating just 45 (there’s room for another 10 guests at the bar), any of these meanings feels apt. Concealed behind a pair of oversized ornate wooden doors –

there’s a small marble nameplate hanging above the adjacent leaded windows, high above eye level and easy to miss; this may very well be the point – the word that comes to my mind on first glimpse is “speakeasy.” But while the pleasure of an illicit bar is in its booze, here it’s about a feast of food. With a dozen and a half or so offerings on Il Covo’s regularly changing menu, plus a thoughtful selection of cheeses and desserts, the concept is based around Venetian cicchetti. Served at Venice’s traditional taverns, or bacari, these bite-sized bar snacks are typically locally influenced eats in a city not often called out for its authentic culinary scene. The Venetian version is Italy’s answer to tapas, more snack than meal and best consumed standing up, at a bar where ideally the party spills onto the street outside. Campbell’s take is more ambitious than any cicchetteria you may have visited, both in substance and style: more substantial than snacks, dishes are about half the size of a full portion; diners are encouraged to order between four and six per person, comprising a leisurely sit-down meal. SUMMER 2018 45 ■


“IN A NUTSHELL,

IL COVO IS A

MEETING “We like to push the boundaries in terms of modernity,” says Campbell. “I think our style is a little more progressive: whether that’s recreating classic, well-known Italian dishes with a very modern twist, or digging deep and finding things people don’t see very often here in North America, or even regional dishes that aren’t well-known in Italy, for that matter. But we also might think of something new off the top of our heads, and take an Italian approach but not necessarily link it to an old classic.”

A plate of pristine West Coast oysters, for example, might come drizzled with Sardinian olive oil, and in place of the usual lemon wedges for zing, pearls of lemon and saffron that burst in your mouth. Vongole, a Campanian dish of clams simmered with white wine, garlic and olive, is virtually unrecognizable – first, because the dish isn’t served hot in its shells or with pasta, and second, because it relies on an ingredient even Campbell had never seen before: the lemonquat. Also known as a sunquat or a lemon drop, the citrus is – as you may have guessed – a hybrid of a lemon and kumquat. It’s tart, but milder on the palate than lemon, with 46 SUMMER 2018 ■

an edible rind. Campbell chops up the whole fruit and serves it like a salsa atop the tiny clams, along with a plate of miniature crostini. Per tradition, there’s garlic, but it’s mild and sweet, making for a light, bright dish that defies the norm. Tramezzini fritto, tiny tea sandwiches stuffed with side-striped shrimp and scallops and smoked lemon mayonnaise, then fried and rolled in chopped chives with more of that lemon mayo on the side for dipping, are Campbell’s take on Italy’s grab-and-go sandwiches. While the basic version is addictive, diners can also up the indulgence factor with an optional addition of 15 grams of Acadian sturgeon caviar.

“IT’S JUST THE WAY WE

LIKE TO EAT,

AND WE WANTED TO

SHARE THAT”

Il Covo’s strong seafood showing shouldn’t come as a surprise. Buca Yorkville, which Campbell returned from a stint working in Italy to help open, is known for marine-driven dishes such as whole raw branzino that’s carved into crudo tableside and seafood charcuterie. But there are also handmade pastas, such as pockets bursting with Carozzi Gorgonzola and radicchio drizzled with 10-year-old aged balsamic from Modena, and brisket braised in Calabrian liquorice. “It’s just the way we like to eat, and we wanted to share that,” says Campbell. “We like to try many different things, and we designed the menu so that’s what our guests can do. I like to think the best of [any chef] comes out when they get to do what they want to do and there are no boundaries.”

lia u J THE MANY ARTISTIC FACES OF

Hacker By David Lasker

Julia Hacker’s art tells the tale of a woman’s life and loves, but there’s nothing “girly” about it. Indeed, her series of collages, which combine sections of original painting with layers of figures painstakingly scissored out from magazines and glued onto the canvas, explore the issues felt by wives and mothers, but in an edgy, witty, surreal way. During a recent visit to her home and studio in the tony St. Andrew’s-Windfields neighbourhood of North York, in northern Toronto, we were captivated by her slightly sinister collages of dream visions kept barely under rational control, depicting the clash of love, loyalty and doubt.

50 SUMMER 2018 ■

For instance, Duties of a Housewife combines images of a horse head and tail; a svelte, elegant cocktail waitress; a string of pearls; and an old-fashioned sterling silver knife, in an ornate, curlicue Baroque pattern. “The story goes like this,” the handsome, red-haired native of Minsk, Belarus, explains in her lightly accented voice. “You work like a horse the whole day as a stay-at-home mother with a husband and teen-aged children. At the end of the day you’re

exhausted, but the expectation of society is that because you stayed at home, you did nothing, because you’re not really working. So you should look not just presentable, but lovely and fresh. And you feel that you still want to be elegant, and for your family to have the best of the best.”

As one ponders the painting, subtle components of the main message emerge. For example, that knife, being made of sterling silver as opposed to stainless steel, requires


regular, time-consuming, tedious polishing. In another collage, titled Pump it up, the woman groans under the weight of an enormous headdress bristling with clockwork gears because, Hacker says as she claps her hands slowly and rhythmically, “A woman always feels that time is ticking, and that every minute and second is numbered.”

Julia Hacker’s art tells the tale of a woman’s life and loves, but there’s nothing “girly” about it. Lest the reader construe these artworks as Rorschach tests revealing the artist to be a troubled, tortured soul, their creation actually acts as a benign safety valve. “I paint because it’s meditative, soothing and therapeutic,” Hacker says. “My husband Rory [a portfolio manager at National Bank of Canada] says that all my love affairs, my experiments, are here.”

DUTIES OF A HOUSEWIFE

Yet the collages are only one side of Hacker’s diverse artistic output, SUMMER 2018 51 ■


which her own website, artjuliahacker.com, describes as “contemporary impressionism, paintings of nature and feminine mystique,” working “in a variety of contemporary mixed media, acrylic paint, collage and illustration.” There are paintings in which she laid down her brush and collage glue and picked up a palette knife. The resulting thick impasto – Italian for “paste” – creates a highly textured surface with the knife marks clearly evident.

One gallery owner advised that she suffered from “artistic schizophrenia” and needed more consistency in her work. She disagrees. For her, variety is the spice of artistic life. In her studio, there’s a large work, “Sky is the limit,” in progress on the easel, 70 by 45 inches, in yet another style. It portrays birds and swirling clouds, reminiscent of a detail in a Renaissance fresco. “I can see this painting 52 SUMMER 2018 ■

being welcoming in a big, airy environment,” she says. She confesses, with a laugh, that one gallery owner advised that she suffered from “artistic schizophrenia” and needed more consistency in her work. She disagrees. For her, variety is the spice of artistic life. “Do you want the same weather all the time? The same food, the same wine?” After graduating with a master’s degree in fashion design in the Soviet Union, Hacker pursued a wide-ranging career. She was an artiste, creating one-off costumes for opera singers. Yet she also put in time on the factory floor supervising the manufacture of garments,

self-reliant New World. This was not easy: lacking personal contacts in Canada’s fashion industry, she couldn’t find a job. So, building on her drafting skills, she struck out as an artist instead. By participating in the massive Artist Project Contemporary Art Fair, held at Exhibition Place the last weekend every February for the last several years, she’s developed a loyal stable of repeat buyers. Her works, depending on size, range from about $900 to $5,000. One Artist Project visitor, Stephanie Nicolò, program manager, gallery, event and marketing coordinator at

Ms. Hacker’s interpretations on large canvases,” he wrote. “Magically bright oils and metallic mixed media combine to create inspirational pieces that speak to the life cycle and daily meditations of growth and discovery. The spiritual and intangible elements of the paintings and her creation process bring healing to an overactive mind and body unattached to the natural world.” Her work has also garnered high praise from someone associated with one of the world’s greatest art museums. Ottawa-based Robert Kaszanits, former

she says, “from nightgowns to wedding dresses.” Irked by the censorship and conservatism of late-Soviet society, she subsequently emigrated to Toronto, where family friends helped her adjust to the entrepreneurial,

Julia’s attention to detail is astonishing, the mark of a truly accomplished artist confident in her craft and bold in her delivery. National Gallery of Canada assistant director and current president of the State Hermitage Museum Foundation of Canada, wrote, “To all who love Great Art: Julia Hacker’s Musings on Nature is bold, new and refreshing. Her selection of sensual colours is inspired by the Canadian wilderness, yet steeped in rich fine-art tradition. Birches, Singing Trees challenges your senses with a mosaic of delightful stained-glass tributes of what is sacred about our natural history, and so often taken for granted but far from commonplace. You see something new every time you go back to it. Julia’s attention to detail is astonishing, the mark of a truly accomplished artist confident in her craft and bold in her delivery. This is story telling at its finest. I can’t get enough!”

From May through September, some of Hacker’s work will be on view and sale at Ryan Fine Art Gallery, 3658 Muskoka Rd. 118 W., Port Carling, Ont. SUMMER 2018 53 ■

COTTAGE MARKET CONTINUES TO SET RECORDS

By Todd Adair SUMMER 2018 63 ■


FOR MANY YEARS, MUSKOKA HAS BEEN VIEWED AS ONE OF THE MOST DESIRABLE REGIONS IN THE COUNTRY FOR VACATION PROPERTIES, AND NO WONDER... WITH ITS SPARKLING LAKES, UNSPOILED NATURAL SCENERY AND YEAR-ROUND ATTRACTIONS. MUSKOKA’S BEAUTY CONTINUES TO BE REFLECTED IN PROPERTY VALUES, WHICH RISE STEADILY YEAR AFTER YEAR. 64 SUMMER 2018 ■

Real estate professionals divide the high-demand cottage sub-markets in Muskoka into two categories: those in which the market absorption rate is good, cottage prices are continuing to rise year after year, and sales are very solid; and a second category, where inventory levels are closer to balanced with good sales inventory. Both of these categories are excellent for both buyers and sellers to consider, depending on needs and investment resources. The absorption rate refers to the percentage of total cottage inventory that’s being sold vs. the number of properties being listed; it’s used to measure the temperature, in a sense, of the market. So, for example, if there are 100 active listings in an area and 60 of those listings are sold in a month, that’s a 60% absorption rate.


FROM A REAL ESTATE VIEWPOINT,

THE ENTIRE REGION OF MUSKOKA CAN BE BROKEN INTO SEVERAL SUB-MARKETS, EACH WITH ITS OWN CHARACTERISTICS AND ASSETS. LAKE MUSKOKA, ROSSEAU AND JOSEPH Without a doubt, The Big Three – Lakes Muskoka, Joseph and Rosseau – continue to be the hottest market in Muskoka, driven primarily by location, big-lake boating and amenities. The absorption rate on the Big Three is by far the highest-scoring Muskoka market based on our calculations. A waterfront cottage on any of these highly desirable lakes has long been considered the “it” location for longtime Muskoka cottagers and newcomers alike, and it is reflected both in prices and demand.

HUNTSVILLE CHAIN OF LAKES The chain of lakes near Huntsville comes in a surprising second place for waterfront absorption rate. Many buyers are shocked to find out that the drive time from Hwy. 400/401 to Huntsville is approximately the same as the drive to Port Carling, and its year-round amenities help drive ongoing demand among baby boomers.

THE SMALLER MUSKOKA LAKES Coming in at a respectable third place is the smaller lakes market. Along with the Big Three, Muskoka abounds in beautiful smaller lakes, such as Skeleton Lake, Kahshe Lake, Muldrew Lake, Three Mile Lake, and many others. Cottages on these lakes are growing in demand not just because they offer prices that are in reach of many typical cottagers, but because they offer the traditional cottage experience that many of us remember from growing up: great swimming, fishing and unspoiled nature, and they are largely free from the jet ski and power-boat traffic that traverses the larger lakes.

LAKE OF BAYS It’s surprising that Lake Of Bays lands in fourth place in terms of sales, since in my opinion, this region is the most undervalued in Muskoka – yes, this lake is in the boundaries of Muskoka. Lake Of Bays is one of the cleanest, clearest lakes in Ontario, and offers excellent

“ T hi s O ntar io trea sure offers alte r natives for a w ide rang e of need s and budget s.”

amenities, including world-class golf and dining, along with all the unspoiled nature and views that have made Muskoka famous for generations. Lake Of Bays is my dark-horse pick to be back on top at this time next year.

BORDERING MARKETS Muskoka’s bordering markets also should be included when considering the overall Mukoka regional market, since they are often a consideration for buyers from Toronto and the GTA who want to purchase central Ontario vacation property but are looking for an alternative to Muskoka. These markets include, for example, Georgian Bay, Parry Sound, and the lakes just north of Huntsville. As prices and demand in Muskoka continue to rise, these markets will continue to reflect increasing demand as a wonderful (and often, still affordable) alternative.

WHETHER BUYERS ARE LOOKING FOR A GRAND MUSKOKA COTTAGE IN THE TRADITION OF THE GREAT SUMMER HOMES THAT HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A PART OF THIS FAMOUS REGION’S HISTORY, ARE SEEKING A MORE MODEST PROPERTY – PERHAPS LIKE THE COTTAGES WHERE THEY SPENT THEIR OWN CHILDHOOD SUMMERS – OR ARE SIMPLY LOOKING FOR A SPECIAL PLACE TO ENJOY THE RELAXED LIFESTYLE THAT COTTAGE LIFE OFFERS, THIS ONTARIO TREASURE OFFERS ALTERNATIVES FOR A WIDE RANGE OF NEEDS AND BUDGETS.

WONDERING WHAT MAKES AN EXCLUSIVE LISTING EXCLUSIVE? The Muskoka real estate market is hotter than ever and common advice from ordinary brokerages tells you to advertise to millions on multiple websites. Your property is neither common or ordinary, so how do you keep your listing from getting lost in the thousands of other listings? It deserves the premier services of a Cayman Marshall exclusive listing; designed to deliver proven results. An exclusive listing with Cayman Marshall is a level of service uniquely created to get your luxury property front and centre to interested buyers: quality over quantity. Our dedicated team of agents know the difference between simply whipping up attention for a property and establishing credibility with serious buyers and sellers. We know that the exact buyer you need is the one who wants the inside track on only the best available properties. These are the buyers who have neither the time nor inclination to sift through hundreds of similar sounding descriptions on MLS. A Cayman Marshall exclusive listing means our agents will pre-qualify prospects and eliminate the “recreational” lookers and

nosey neighbours. For higher end properties, we may require bank documentation to prove serious interest before we show it. Our agents may work on a negotiated reduction on commission. Our clientele may desire very specific showing instructions. These are examples of specific and/or custom conditions that are set out in the listing agreement that are available to our exclusive clientele. This ensures that every one of your expectations are met. We at Cayman Marshall don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to selling luxury Muskoka real estate. An exclusive listing starts with a personalized marketing plan rolled out to the more than 27,000 people in our database and visitors to our website. When you list exclusively with Cayman Marshall our team will have the sole right to showcase your property for the duration of the listing. Concessions can be made for other brokerages, but only for genuine, qualified prospects. Regardless of whether you’re a motivated buyer or seller, an exclusive listing with Cayman Marshall is a great option for those that want an alternative to MLS.

CAYMAN MARSHALL ADVANTAGE “Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.” – Albert Einstein When we opened the doors of Cayman Marshall International Realty Inc. as a small boutique Brokerage firm to serve the Muskoka Real Estate Market in 2012, we did so with the intention of redefining the level of service that clients could expect from our Real Estate Professionals. Since then, we have grown into an impressive team of top-producing Realtors and Brokers committed to ensuring our clients receive the highest level of service when buying or selling property in one of Canada’s most sought-after luxury destinations. We at Cayman Marshall have been entrusted with the most prestigious waterfront properties in Muskoka. As leaders in the Muskoka Luxury and Waterfront Real Estate Market, we have had record sales on many of Muskoka’s finest lakes with expectations to surpass the One Billion dollar mark in total sales volume this summer. We have offices in Port Carling, Huntsville/Lake Of Bays and we’re launching our new Toronto office this spring to meet all of our clients’ needs. Our in-house IT professionals have developed proprietary online tools and software, interactive and intuitive websites, virtual tours, stunning photography and an astonishing network of over 400 local and international referral partners to ensure our clients’ listings get the exposure they need to attract the most discerning buyers. We now print six magazines in Ontario each year and have become one of the largest Muskoka magazines with an impressive 25,000 printed copies and 30,000 online copies circulated with each issue showcasing all of our clients’ listings.

As a final distinction, our Cayman Marshall Port Carling Brokerage was just voted (by a large panel of judges) to be the “Best Real Estate Agency in Canada” – a title that we cherish! Founded on the principles of teamwork, service and value, Cayman Marshall is the best advantage for buyers and sellers alike in Ontario. If you’re looking for a team that understands the entire Muskoka Real Estate market from north to south, you can count on us to continue being the most successful team in Muskoka.

MEET THE TEAM...

RAY DICKSON**

MIKE ARNOLD*

Broker of Record

Sales Representative

Ray has been loving Muskoka for the past 40 years and is happy to call it home with his wife Johanna and their two boys. His passion for Muskoka is equally shared with real estate since first licensed in 2007.

With 25 years’ experience in sales and marketing, joining the Cayman Marshall team was a great fit for Michael. His “customer first” dedication to his clients has always resulted in successful long-term relationships. With a passion for boating and water sports, Michael looks forward to enjoying all that the Muskoka Lakes has to offer.

TODD ADAIR*

President/Sales Representative

Todd made a name for himself in real estate back in 2011 when in Todd’s first year of selling, he earned the spot as the #1 Remax agent in Muskoka. That motivated him to continue on and become President of Cayman Marshall International Realty in 2012. In 2013, he became the majority shareholder and recently decided to purchase the entire company and dedicate 100% of his efforts into taking Cayman Marshall to the next level. Todd has created, built and sold various IT companies. Throughout his career, he has been known for breaking the mold and always moving against the grain – never satisfied with the ordinary, but striving for excellence. Todd firmly believes that real estate isn’t about excelling at sales, but rather about being great at solving problems and caring for clients through exceptional service. In Todd’s down time you will find him buying, building or renovating his own real estate projects, on the water wakeboarding and kite surfing, or hacking up the fairways of a local golf course. Todd’s most important job is being a husband and father to his family of four.

Jeff entered into real estate in 2008 facing a down market and a recession in the echoes. Overcoming the odds, Jeff has now become a “top producer” in his industry. Raising his 2 boys alongside his wife and getting the occasional golf game in is what Jeff enjoys most when he’s not out selling.
