East Gwillimbury is proud of its history. Quakers and United Empire Loyalists moved into East Gwillimbury wanting to start new lives and build new settlements. The township is truly dedicated to preserving its cultural and historical sites, artifacts and traditions within each community acknowledging the hard work and contributions of original settlers. East Gwillimbury has a cottage-country style setting that gives you plenty of ways to unwind at nearby parks, hiking trails, conservation areas and local marinas where you can launch your boat.
Originally a village found along concession roads used by Quaker settlers, Queensville was built in 1843. This cute and charming town has an original rural town feel that is usually only found in remote Ontario communities. This community will be home to significant growth over the next few years with the construction of new homes and schools.
East Gwillimbury recently expanded the Green Lane Corridor to attract more businesses and jobs whilst building new homes and transit options in the area. The town has also seen Highway 404 open an exit/entrance at Green Lane and Queensville Side Road leading all the way to Georgina. A Secondary Plan for future expansion is already in the planning stages and it is expected to rival that of Ontario’s greatest towns.
East Gwillimbury’s rural area includes the protected lands of the Oak Ridges Moraine and Provincial Greenbelt. The region is home to agriculture and aggregate resources, protected green space, rural commercial and industrial areas, recreational areas and a few residential developments.
East Gwillimbury has a wide variety of sports and activities for children and adults through local community groups. Activities include: softball, fastball, hockey, skating, soccer, tennis, run/walk clubs, swimming, football and Girl Guides and Cub Scouts of Canada. If you’re looking for a little bit of downtime, community parks, picnic shelters and conservation areas are only minutes away. You can even schedule a day of golf at Pheasant Run Golf or Shawneeki Golf Club.
The Town recently joined David Suzuki’s Blue Dot Movement, which is a foundation to support a healthy environment. This initiative emphasizes the town’s commitment to its citizens, one of only a few across Canada.
With increased development and the expansion of Highway 404, East Gwillimbury has experienced steady growth for retail businesses and restaurants. Local restaurants cater to its community as well as Newmarket with a variety of places to go for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Joshua was an incredible resource both helping us find our home and selling our old place when the time came. He is a strong negotiator and provided a wide range of value add services leading up and following closing - it is just how he works! While, we found our “forever home” if we ever choose to sell or buy another place. We’ll be working with Josh.

Joshua Campbell was referred to me as I was moving into a new town that the other office was not familiar with. His support, knowledge, expertise and professionalism made the whole procedure of buying my new place seemless. I so appreciate his care and concern to help me make the right choice for my new home. I will most definitely reach out to him again for the next one.
I first met Josh about 9 years ago when I was renting a house. He was super friendly, helpful and understanding. 3 years later i was in a position to purchase my own home and there was no doubt who I would be calling - Josh-. A few words to describe him: knowledgeable, attentive, personable, trustworthy, hard working, I could keep going, He really is the real deal. If you want a realtor who's got your back and will find you your perfect home, you must call Josh!
My wife and I have been close friends with Josh for years. Although many would suggest that working with friends is not wise. It was different with Josh. We knew that we would be working with someone that treated us the same as anyone else, friends or not. He listened, he empathized and understood our needs. He was able to bring calm to an otherwise stressful situation. We would recommend him to anyone we know.

My wife and I have had the privilege of working with Josh on 2 occasions. Josh is professional, courteous and friendly. He is always available to answer questions, and his real estate knowledge is second to none. He was able to sell our first home for full price with no conditions on the first day of listing. We were also able to secure our second home thanks to some insight from Josh. Using Josh's guidance we wrote a letter to the home owner explaining my wife's connection to the property (she had grown up a couple doors down, and had actually swam in their pool). There were multiple offers of the same price, but we were able to secure the property partly because of that letter. If you are looking for a real estate agent who knows real estate, will be open and honest with you, and will work to get you the best deal, then Josh Campbell is a great choice.

Josh was top notch in every way - knowledge of market, dealing with our changes in direction, through to taking care of all the steps from the offer through to the closing. Josh's services extend beyond just the home sale, as he was quick to help with connections to services we needed before, during and after our move. On top of it all, he is a great person to do it all with. Thanks Josh!
We offer the highest level of expertise, service and integrity.
Joshua Campbell has helped hundreds of individuals and families throughout his career. Take a moment to meet with Joshua and you will see first-hand his commitment to you, to your family and to your goals.CONTACT US
