WELCOME TO GEORGINA

William Bourchier, a retired member of the British Royal Navy, decided to claim land in the area of Georgina in 1816. He encouraged other families to join him to settle and establish farming communities. Most of the land along the shoreline was granted to military personnel to protect the township if American troops tried to attack. The town of Georgina was created in 1970, which included three large urban communities being Keswick, Sutton and Jackson’s Point.  Moreover, there were seven rural villages created including Pefferlaw, Virginia, Udora, Baldwin, Belhaven, Brownhill and Ravenshoe.

REAL ESTATE INSIGHTS

In recent years, Georgina has seen real estate values go through the roof. This is due to the ever-increasing demand for housing in the Greater Toronto Area. The expansion of Highway 404 to Ravenshoe Road created even more reasons for families to move into the area.  With one of the greatest shorelines in all of Canada, it is no wonder Georgina is becoming a sought after community to raise your family. The community of Keswick has nearly reached its peak with housing starts which means that the communities of Sutton, Jackson’s Point and Pefferlaw are really starting to grow. If you are looking for all of the amenities that a major metropolis has to offer with natural resources nearby to enjoy an active lifestyle, consider Georgina as your next place to live.

INSIDER TIPS

Parks & Recreation

Summers in Georgina are full of days swimming at the beach, hiking through forests or camping at Sibbald’s Point Provincial Park. Tour the scenic shoreline by canoeing, boating or windsurfing. Winter is just as exciting for snowmobiling, skiing and especially ice fishing. After all, Georgina is known as the “ice fishing capital of Canada!” Georgina is the perfect place to enjoy nature and wildlife as well. Check out the Marsh Fish and Bird Sanctuary or the Morning Glory Provincial Nature Reserve. You could also plan a day to get family and friends involved in local community activities such as the Sutton Annual Fair, Double Day Triathlon Event, Georgina Studio Tour or Purple Turtle Art Festival. Refuel and enjoy a hometown meal at one of the many local restaurants or pubs.  Lastly, treat yourself to a fine-dining experience at The Briars on Lake Simcoe.

Reading through all of these very positive reviews, we go on record to totally agree on all points. Josh is knowledgeable, patient, honest, hard working and just an all around nice guy. He sold our home in Newmarket 8 years ago (in a couple of days) so we didn’t hesitate to contact him to help with the sale of our current home. He worked his magic and aligned the whole universe to get our house sold on the same day it went on the market for over asking. We couldn’t be more thrilled. I can’t stress the ‘patient’ part enough. We engaged Josh in May of 2015 when we purchased a new home in Lindsay, knowing that it wouldn’t be ready until 2017. The developer ran into issues which caused delay after delay. Josh kept in touch with us throughout all of this, keeping us calm, and we are finally looking forward to our move to Lindsay in November!! Thanks so much Josh. It has been a pleasure to work with you and your AMAZING team. Staging, photography, signage, marketing...all of it, just awesome. - Jim & Janet McDonnell
