About Maggie

Maggie Horne, Broker, DVM, DVSc

Maggie Horne, a retired equine veterinarian, long-time farm owner in Guelph/Eramosa Township near Guelph, and a licensed real estate broker with Royal LePage Royal City Realty, combines her unique background and education to focus on equestrian, farm and country property sales to the north, west and south of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). Most real estate sales reps are NOT themselves rural property owners and hence may be both unfamiliar and inexperienced with the special needs and concerns of country property buyers and sellers. Maggie offers her clients a thorough understanding of zoning bylaws including permissible uses for properties, environmental issues, conservation authority restrictions& guidelines, municipal & provincial land use planning for agriculture & rural residential zones; as well as specific rural property services like septic systems, wells & water purification systems. She provides insight and an educated approach to help sellers achieve maximum return on their property investment and to help buyers determine the suitability of a particular property for a prospective buyer's needs.

To better serve her clients, Maggie created 2 unique websites geared specifically to the needs of country property enthusiasts; www.HorseFarmsOntario.com and www.CountryHomesOntario.com. These websites are designed not only to assist buyers in their search for the ideal property and sellers in marketing their property to the appropriate target audience; but to also provide an extensive resource to country enthusiasts for all their country home and lifestyle needs; such as community interests, service providers, etc.

Maggie is also active in the equestrian community, as a breeder of Dutch Warmblood horses for the jumper market. All of herhome bred show horses carry the HFO prefix to their names. Currently showing are HFO Corvette (Corland x Nimmerdor) purchased by Alejandro Karolyi (VEN) & Team Karolyi Show Jumping in 2017 and showing FEI Grand Prix & HFO Cordyte (Corland x Nimmerdor) shown by James Gillam of G&G Sporthorses Ltd., at 1.35 - 1.40m level. Current sale horses and breeding stock are also included in the www.HorseFarmsOntario.com website.
