Our Story


Affinity Group Pinnacle Realty

My name is Tim James and I am the Broker of Record and co-founder, with my business partner Denis Brown, of Affinity Group Pinnacle Realty Ltd. Brokerage. Denis and I met while working together as salespeople with another brokerage and we became fast friends. The real estate business perplexed us as new salespeople and we began supporting each other to navigate the challenges of representing our clients as independent contractors. We saw that our clients' experiences could be consistently better if we worked with a brokerage that held itself accountable for their success. A firm that supported its clients with specialized administrative staff, the latest technology, and a dynamic team of collaborative, knowledgeable and high performing agents. We knew that this mission could not be fulfilled by ourselves alone. We needed to bring together a dynamic, advanced, and comprehensive group of individuals who wanted to work together towards that common goal.



We felt that the best place to establish this idealistic organization was in the heart of the area where we lived and served. The Kawartha Lakes is a beautiful region in central Ontario where rich agricultural land is interspersed with over 200 lakes and rivers and home to dozens of unique towns, villages, and small communities. Denis Brown was born and raised in Toronto and spent his summers at his family cottage on Sturgeon Lake. It didn’t take him long to decide not to wait for the weekends to commute to the region he loved, and he now lives at his family cottage with his partner Judy. Growing up on a farm, I have never strayed too far from home, and my wife and I are proud to be raising our three boys here in the Kawartha Lakes . For these reasons we decided that 273 Kent Street West in historic downtown Lindsay would be the perfect location for our office.



The name and branding of Affinity Group epitomizes our ideals and company mission. To bring together high performing, ethical agents with specialized administrative support staff to work together in harmony to achieve a common goal of creating exceptional real estate experiences for our clients. We hold ourselves accountable to the highest standards of professionalism by asking the ultimate question after the completion of every transaction. When our client tells us that they would recommend our brokerage and their agent to their friends and family, that is how we define our success. We are proud of the fact that the majority of our clients last year chose us as a repeat client or a referral from a friend. Our unique brand is symbolizing and telling our story everywhere you see it; A Real Estate Brokerage with agents, administrators, and clients all working together to achieve a common goal.
