Karin Welsh & Lindsay Welsh-Smulders Real Estate Broker

We love selling homes in York-Durham. After all, it's our home, too.

Karin Welsh has been helping homeowners in Ontario's York and Durham Regions buy and sell homes for almost 30 years. When Lindsey, Karin's daughter, made the decision to join the business, they spent some time distilling down their values and what was really important to the service they offered their clients.

They know that you have a choice – many in fact – of Real Estate Brokers and Sales Associates throughout York-Durham. Both Lindsey and Karin have a strong commitment to relieve as much stress as possible from the process of buying or selling a home. And they do everything in their power to make that commitment happen.

  • Lindsey and I are in the business of helping people find 'Homes for Life in York Durham'. The 'life' part refers to the quality of life that we believe the region offers. It also reflects our commitment as your partners to help you transition to different stages of home ownership throughout your life as a home owner.

We listen. We take all the time you need. And we're never, ever pushy.

We know that buying a home can be a deeply emotional experience. We'll listen to your needs and concerns at the outset and throughout the process, and let you set the pace each step of the way. Take your time – we're here for you.

We know York-Durham like the back of our hand.

We've been helping families buy homes throughout York and Durham Regions for 30 years, and we've both lived in the area all our lives. We know the ins and outs of the real estate market here, and of the local community, too. That means that when you tell us what kind of home you want, we'll know just where to find it.

We'll find the home that you want... not the home we think you should have.

Each and every one of our clients is unique, and each has different needs and wants when it comes choosing a new home. We'll listen carefully to your requirements and really get to know you, so that we can help you find the home you've been dreaming of.

We'll make sure you have all the facts you need to make informed choices.

We'll always be straight with you – respectfully. We don't ever balk at laying out the facts, because we know that informed clients are better able to make decisions that benefit them. But rest assured, we'll always be courteous and kind, and put your needs first.

This is a family business... when you work with us, you become part of our family.

Far too many agents see real estate exclusively as a numbers game. But while the numbers do matter, at the end of the day, you matter more. We'll be there for you as a support system and sounding board throughout the home buying process. 

We have the patience to help you navigate the process, with minimal stress.

We'll guide you through each step of the home buying process, at your pace, while providing the expertise to keep things moving along smoothly. Buying a home is a big investment, and shouldn't be rushed.

We know our business. We know all the short cuts, and when to be meticulous.

When you buy a home with Welsh & Co., you get all the benefits that 30 years of experience in the York-Durham market bring to the table. We'll bring our substantial knowledge of an experience to bear on your home buying process, to help you find you the home of your dreams.

We are in this for the long haul – and hope our relationship lasts for years.

We consider the day you get the keys to your new home to be just the beginning of our relationship! We hope to cultivate a long-lasting relationship with you, and see you through all your real estate endeavors for many years to come.


We'll take care of all the details and make the selling process easy.

Selling your home, especially when you've lived in it for many years, can be a stressful and emotionally charged experience. We'll take care of the details throughout the process, so that you can focus on taking care of yourself.

We will be honest about what it takes to sell. No sugar-coating here.

We'll tell you exactly what you need to know to get the best price for your home. But while we'll be candid and forthright, we'll always treat you with kindness, consideration and respect.

We have great relationships with other realtors serving York-Durham.

Over the past 30 years, we've cultivated long-standing relationships with many clients, and with many fantastic realtors as well! We'll put our substantial network of connections to work to help you sell your home.

We have 30 years of experience – and the strength of the RE/MAX brand – behind us.

RE/MAX is North America's most trusted real estate company, providing the best training, and the best marketing support to its many brokerages. RE/MAX gives us access to a variety of great marketing resources which, in combination with our 30 years of professional experience, will give you a serious edge when it comes to selling your home. 

We use the power of social media to get the word out about your hot new listing.

The acceptance and use of social media (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.) has long passed the point at which it was simply and 'option' for real estate. Now, it's a must.

The Welsh & Co. team is definitely 'social media savvy' – we have really strong social media networks and know how to 'work them'. And that means you get the power of our online community behind your new listing. Learn More »

We create professional feature sheets, photographs and videos of your property.

When you list with Welsh & Co., you get professionalism at all levels – and that includes all the marketing bits and pieces. Buyers can definitely see the difference when they look at a listing.

Your property will be well-presented with quality photography and video, as well as professional design on the feature sheets we hand out to other real estate agents and buyers.

When it makes sense, we even do drone videos.

For certain properties, such as rural properties with acreage, or properties with a great view, we'll recommend a drone video. Not only is it a very cool approach to presenting your home to new buyers, it's extremely effect.

(And, we'll take care of all the detail for you!)

We help in the home staging process and will call in experts if required.

Pictures are worth a 1,000 words... and that's why it's really important that buyers see a well staged home, both in photographs and in person.

When we stage a home, we prepare your home by organizing the interior elements so it appeals to the highest number of potential buyers.

It's a proven strategy that helps sell faster and for more money. And, we're very good at it!

We lease out large artwork and paintings to help give your home that 'WOW' factor.

Same philosophy as above, but from a different perspective.

One of the things we do differently with our staging is to bring in leased artwork when we believe it can dramatically change how a room is viewed – because, again, we know that pictures are worth a 1,000 words!

The transformation is often magical... and a few dollars spent on the rental can lead to a selling price that is dramatically higher. It can be a great investment.

If you think Welsh & Co. sounds like a good fit for you, we'd love to chat!

We'll look after you. Promise.

Whether you are buying or selling a home in York and Durham Regions, the Welsh & Co. team is here for you, with thoughtful, stress-free service.
