Bruce & Jake

Home » Bruce & Jake


I moved to Sioux Narrows in 1972 and have never regretted it for a minute. My wife Kathy and I bought a cabin on Johnson Road and it became our family home. We have three children, Dave, Jake, and Marie who all have the love of the outdoors as we do. Jake and I have been working together for twenty-one great years now. We know lake life. We are living it.

Getting outside is what Kathy and I do. For the past 34 years, we have participated in the Terry Fox Run so you may see us running on the highway in the summer mornings. Evenings are for fishing or kayaking or shore picnics “out on the lake” with friends and family. Winter finds us cutting tracks on our cross-country skis’ on the park trails or trying some hard water fishing. Love that fresh air.

I received my Real Estate license in 1992 and started Northwoods Realty Ltd. in 1997. Wow, where does the time go? I have been having fun. Helping Buyers find their dream vacation property is very satisfying. I get to meet plenty of great people who have the same likes as Jake and myself: The love of the outdoors, a small-town community, and honest, straightforward folks. When representing Sellers I recognize the necessity to be sensitive to their needs. It is hard to leave Lake of the Woods when many of your best memories are related to your cottage property or vacation home.

If you would like advice on either buying or selling or need appraisal work done, let us be of service to you. We have the experience, patience, and resources.


JakeI was born and raised in Sioux Narrows and every year my appreciation for Sioux Narrows and Lake of the Woods grows. I have been enjoying helping people buy and sell lakefront property for twenty-one years and I look forward to the opportunity to be able to help you too.

I have always loved the outdoors, having been lucky enough to grow up in such an amazing place. This love of the outdoors led me to spend time doing yard work and guiding at local camps and then to work for five summers as an Ontario Fire Ranger fighting fires across Ontario and Canada. After graduating from the University of Manitoba, I knew I had to get back to the lake and started working with my Dad at Northwoods Realty in 2002.

I have also been lucky enough to travel around the world to 14 different countries, always returning home with a renewed appreciation of the fact that our little corner of the planet here on and around Lake of the Woods is a very special place. This love of the area puts me in a great position to help sell properties as I can convey to buyers how much fun they can have here, and help buyers find just the right property they are looking for.

I enjoy exploring Lake of the Woods and many of the surrounding smaller lakes by boat, snowmobile, and canoe spending as much time as I can on and around the lake with my wife Amy and my family and friends. I also enjoy reading, podcasts, playing hockey, fishing, cross-country skiing, photography, and traveling.
