We used the Think Boyd team when we moved to Parry Sound in 2019. Nicole was highly professional, thorough, and paid close attention to our needs. She found us the perfect home for our family! We’re excited to be working with Nicole again more recently while looking for an investment property. We recommend Nicole to anyone looking for a well-connected and knowledgeable agent in the area

As first time buyers new to the area, Nicole’s energy, insight and enthusiasm really gave us confidence. We always felt understood by her, and she absolutely went ‘above and beyond’ to help us find the right place.

Had an amazing experience from start to finish with Nicole Boyd! My husband and I were so impressed with everything Nicole was doing for us! No detail was left out with the sale of our cottage. Every need was handled with efficiency and care. Highly recommend Nicole Boyd

Thanks so much Nicole!

In my recent dealings with the real estate market, I have genuinely felt as if Nicole is a friend looking out for my best interests. She is highly motivated, fair, kind and personable. She takes the time to get to know her clients on a personal level, which makes her very skilled at catering to your hopes and needs. I highly recommend Think Boyd for all your real estate needs.

The experience of searching for our new property was comfortable, friendly, relaxed and we felt we could trust Claudette and Nicole to work in our best interest. We took several months to make a decision on our purchase and through it all, we felt well supported and never rushed. Although we worked primarily with Claudette, Nicole was there when Claudette could not be. Their team approach provided an added layer of service and reliability.

 We have bought 3 homes with the Boyd team, and sold 2.  The best compliment we can give is that every single detail of each transaction was pleasant, proficient, and above our expectations.  Nicole and Claudette did everything we needed and more – including providing us with a cat cage for our not-so-friendly feline for showings.  Our only tasks were to view various homes, pick one, and sign papers from time to time.  The team is full of knowledge on the subject, and they provided many insights for us, such as staging our properties, professionals to consider hiring, next steps, building/landscaping ideas, and upcoming sales not yet on the market, building codes, etc.  Their intimate knowledge of each place that we looked at or even asked about, including its history, plusses and minuses, seasonal conditions and concerns, etc. was impressive, appreciated, and remarkable.  They would take the time to answer our many questions, without delay, whether we called, emailed, or texted.  Their team is knowledgeable, professional, friendly, and efficient.  If we ever decide to sell our current home, Nicole and Claudette would be our first contact!  Thanks again to the two of you; it’s been a real pleasure working with you: we are left enchanted, again.

Claudette Boyd’s real estate service and advice was truly fantastic. As a first time home buyer, she took the time to answer all our questions and ensure we were comfortable with all the processes involved. She was not only professional, but also very personable. Claudette takes the time to do the extra little things to ease a buyer’s mind, such as following up on issues, even after closing, to ensure things are running as they should. We recommend her very highly.

Well it’s been a year since we took possession of the cottage on Sunset Bay.

We have enjoyed making some new family memories and have completed a few projects to make the place our own.

We think of you each time we pass your billboards on the side of the highway as we head north or back home.

Just wanted to thank you once again for your assistance and professionalism.

Nicole Boyd has helped not only my husband and I but other family members as well buy and sell our homes. Nicole is approachable, friendly and is always looking out for our best needs. Nicole means so much to our family. We appreciate her so so much. We highly recommend Nicole! You will not be disappointed!

I have known Nicole for many years now. She has shown me many houses and properties over the years and is always willing to go on an adventure. A couple years back she was the essential component in acquiring a duplex. Just recently I received a transfer through work and was required to sell my house through a government program. I advised Nicole and she indicated that she would gladly list my house for me understanding the governments’ requirements. When permission came to list my house from the government I was out of town for the week. Nicole (at my direction) entered my house through an unlocked window, staged, photographed and replaced the front door handle in order to enable showings. While i was still out of town, Nicole arranged numerous viewings of my house. When I returned back to town there were already two offers to purchase my house because of Nicole’s hard work. There is no way to describe my appreciation of Nicole’s efforts on getting my house on the market and sold. Thank you Nicole.

Steve and Meagan

As a first time home buyer I had a lot of questions and concerns.  Claudette looked after all of my needs and was able to make my home buying experience simple and enjoyable.  She made herself very available and made sure I was comfortable every step of the way.


“Nicole worked closely with us to help find a great home for a price within our budget. We especially appreciated her no pressure approach and listening to what we wanted. She also helped us find a home inspector and made us feel comfortable during the entire buying process. We would definitely use her services again!”

Claudette’s friendly demeanour and professional advice guided us through a sometimes unnerving process. Her experience and knowledge was invaluable through the difficult sale of our home. She had a good sense of what we liked when house shopping and she wasn’t afraid to broaden our horizons in the pursuit of a new home. We love our new home and would not hesitate to recommend Claudette to potential clients.

Lynn & Bill Martin

We recently purchased a cottage property with Claudette Boyd as our agent. It was a very positive experience working with her. Her manner was low-key and she never pushed. There was no false urgency or drama, no pressure. She offered knowledgeable advice, encouragement, and support to us throughout the lengthy process of our purchase. Most of all, Claudette acted with integrity with all parties. We would not hesitate to use her services again. Mary-Jean and Chris Page

As first time homebuyers, Nicole was so helpful and provided a positive purchasing experience for us. She has been a longtime family friend, and it has been so nice to have her as our agent. She is very prompt in responding to any question or concern. She definitely has our best interests in mind.

Many thanks Nicole!
Alicia & Mike

“Nicole made it her personal goal to find my husband and I our perfect first home. She somehow managed to find exactly what we wanted, within our budget. She was a joy to work with and has a great sense of humour yet also extremely professional. The best part about Nicole was that she did not disappear after the sale went through. We still hear from her regularly and recommend her often to others. Although my husband and I are both local and know the area, she managed to tell us things about neighborhoods etc that we didn’t know!” Kirsten & Joel Baker

The Baker Family

“A few years ago, we were interested in a cottage on Upper Harris Lake.  We contacted Nicole and she made arrangements to see the property via ATV on our time schedule.  The visit was successful and the offer written up.  It took a summer and many texts back and forth to Nicole but we did purchase the cottage property for the price we wanted to pay.  She went above and beyond as she worked out the final details.  Nicole was accommodating, pleasant, professional, answered texts quickly and thoroughly, not pushy or judgmental.  If the time came that we would buy or sell a property in the Parry Sound area, Nicole would be the Real Estate Agent of choice.  We highly recommend her as she builds a friendship along with meeting your Real Estate needs.”

Jack & Laura

We were wondering how we were going to make it happen from so far away. A email search for local agents and a tentative call to Claudette was all it took; she arranged for a cleaning crew to make our place presentable, someone with a chainsaw to remove the tree that fell across our road, and updates after every showing. It was no wonder she found the perfect buyer to love our cottage, and all within a few months. Thank you a thousand times!”

The Philbey Family

“Moving was nothing new to me. My work takes me all over the province. Parry Sound though was a challenge when it came to finding a home. The limited selection of homes for sale coupled with my high expectations at a reasonable price, was no easy task. Nicole Boyd of Royal Lepage worked diligently at finding the right home for me. Her knowledge and resourcefulness persevered and after several showings I found “the one”. Thank you Nicole for being so patient and for not giving up on me!” “Claudette worked with me for many years to find my dream home in the Parry Sound area.  Her patience and extensive knowledge of the area were invaluable in my search.  I look forward to working with her again in the future and would recommend her services to others”.

Marsha Rivers, Carling ON

‘When my elderly parents had to find a home in Parry Sound we contacted Nicole Boyd to give us a hand in finding the perfect home. They had quite an extensive wish list and were moving from the lake, so the task was quite demanding. Nicole was very sensitive to their needs and ultimately found them the perfect home. The house actually brings tears to my moms eyes when she tells people about it. It is perfect ……. many thanks to Nicole and her mom’.


“Nicole provided us with excellent knowledge and advice while selling our house. She was very professional in working with us and helped us sell our home within our time limit and for the price we wanted. She also had great suggestions for helping us stage the home properly. We would definitely use her services again!”
