Our Team.

Jackie Blakney, Broker

I have a passion for people and pride myself on my “customer first” philosophy. This has resulted in a business that has thrived on a referral basis with 95% of all transactions being direct referrals from past clients and fellow realtors. Integrity, dedication, marketing expertise, market knowledge, strong negotiation skills and a professional full time office have earned me continued clients trust.


I have been involved in the real estate market since 1982 with over 20 years experience as a real estate law clerk then moving full time into real estate sales. This background has served as an excellent tool to provide exceptional service to buyers and sellers with confidence and provided me with invaluable experience as to the problems encountered every day in real estate transactions. I pride myself on assisting every client from the first time home buyer to sophisticated investors with the same level of service. I believe in helping my clients from their initial contact and extending well beyond the completion of the home sale or purchase, understanding that communication is the key to successful relationships.


I was born in Kingston and proud to call this city home with its beautiful waterfront, historical architecture and its many shops, restaurants and beautiful green space.


Born in Kingston and raised everywhere, I followed my father’s career in the military moving all across the country. I am very proud to be affiliated with the military relocation program and feel that I bring a special understanding of the process and endeavors to provide each relocation client with a smooth transition.


I love giving back to our community, especially the Children’s Miracle Network and make every home a miracle home by making a donation on every purchase and sale.

Tim Barber, Real Estate Broker

After ten years as a professional air ambulance and charter airline pilot, I commenced my real estate career by joining the RE/MAX network in 2007. A native of Montréal, I moved to Kingston in the late 70’s with my family, and I consider this wonderful city to be my hometown. I attended Queen’s University studying Economics and Geography before extending my studies at Seneca College in Toronto where I graduated from the Aviation and Flight Technology Program at the top of my class.


Since joining the real estate industry, I have earned sales awards in every full year I have worked under the RE/MAX brand. I pride myself on my attention to detail, and making sure that my clients are happy by always giving 100% of my skills and ability to the task of buying and selling homes. Earlier this year, the Blakney and Barber Real Estate Team was formed, and together with my business partner Jackie Blakney, we are now providing unparalleled professional Real Estate Services to clients from Gananoque to Deseronto and everywhere in between. Invite us in, we’ll bring results!


I believe strongly in giving back to the community, and to that end, I have been involved with many charitable organizations and events. With every transaction I complete, I make a donation to the Children’s Miracle Network, which directly benefits 14 children’s hospitals in Canada. I also give back to my profession by volunteering my time to organized real estate, and I currently serve as the 2013 President of the Kingston and Area Real Estate Association.

David Hounsome, Sales Representative

Having lived in the area nearly all my life, I have a firm understanding of what makes Kingston a place you can be proud to call Home. I enjoy meeting new people and showing them all that the city has to offer. With a passion for doing a great service for all my clients, I take pride in providing the most competent and complete services possible. I enjoy helping everyone with their real-estate goals and all types of unique sales situations. Backing me, I have a team of 7 individuals who provide great resources and present a wealth of knowledge.


I am currently completing my Undergraduate from Carleton University with a B.A. in Geography. Spending time in a university setting and developing a further understanding of human-geography related topics has allowed me a great opportunity to translate that knowledge to the real-estate marketplace.


I am committed to providing outstanding service to all my clients, and I look forward to working together. Should you have any questions or wish to contact me, please do so, as I would be happy to hear from you!
