Richmond Hill has had a history of growth explosions! The town’s boundary increased from 1700 acres to 2700 acres when the town limits were expanded to include parts of Whitchurch-Stouffville, Markham, Vaughan and King in 1970. Jay Chauhan founded “The Richmond Hill Association for Multiculturalism” in 1989 which led to a population explosion with new people discovering the area for the first time and making it their home. As a result, Richmond Hill has developed many multicultural and diverse neighbourhoods and is still considered one of Canada’s fastest-growing towns.
Richmond Hill continues to see extensive population growth. Due to its close proximity and accessibility to Toronto, more and more people are calling Richmond Hill home. With the extension of the TTC subway to Vaughan, it has only driven prices higher. The current price of an average detached home in Richmond Hill is well over a million dollars. If the plans of the next subway extension to Highway 7 come to fruition, we will see the condo world explode in Richmond Hill. Once considered a small town and referred to as the "rose" capital of Canada, Richmond Hill has flourished. It is now a highly sought after community for those looking to raise a family in the same town where they can have a successful career.

Joshua did a great job finding a new house for our son in Newmarket, so it was with a trusted referral that we chose to use his services to sell our own home when it was time for us to downsize and move to Muskoka. Joshua did a fantastic job for us, and in the end it was the very first couple who saw our house that ended up buying it! We strongly endorse Joshua as an honest, open, and hard-working professional who not only resonates with mid-life and older clients, but who is also fully plugged in to modern social media tools which he effectively leverages in service to his clients of all ages. - Tony van Kesselread more

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.

He was able to bring calm to an otherwise stressful situation. We would recommend him to anyone we know. - Brandon & Jodi Chapmanread more
