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.

We met Josh through a mutual acquaintance, and that was our lucky day! Although we lived in Georgetown, after our first meeting with him we decided he was the agent who would sell our property and find us a new one that suited the life transition that we were making. He gave us very solid advice in terms of getting the house ready to sell, and on setting the selling price, and it sold in record time and at a record price. He showed us one perfect home in the area that we were looking in, and we are now happily settled in our new home thanks to Josh. Josh is a very dedicated and professional real estate agent, and we would highly recommend him to anyone who is in the market to buy or sell a property. - Jayne Brownread more

It was a pleasure to work with Josh. His tag line is a perfect description “knowledge broker” throughout the process he stayed in touch Keeping us informed on the process and giving suggestions. Sold our home and found us our dream home. We were able to cross off ALL of our wish list with this house and still keep within a budget. Plus my husband cut his commute in half and we are minutes away from my family. Josh helped make our dreams come true.......... Thank you so much for all your help and hard work. - Sharon Bates and Jeff Avardread more
Josh was a great help to us. Very honest and reliable. We felt very confident that he always had our best interests in mind. He always provided us with updates and was available whenever we needed. We were in a rush situation where we had to sell our condo quickly. Josh's expertise and advice helped us tremendously. We were able to sell our condo in 2 days and above the asking price. As my wife and I start our young family, building a nice home is vital towards a strong foundation. With Josh's help, we can now move to our new house in Newmarket and start this new chapter in our lives. Thanks Josh! - Jeff & Mabel Chanread more
Very accommodating and flexible with scheduling. Josh had a very solid grasp on the market and was very patient with my wife and I as we were going through the home buying process for the first time. An absolute pleasure to deal with, I would highly recommend! - David & Christine Beishuizenread 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. 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. - Brandon & Jodi Chapmanread more
