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.
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. Contact Joshua Campbell to arrange a showing to see homes in one of Georgina’s fabulous communities or to list your property.

Georgina is proud to be able to hold onto its country charm and foster contemporary lifestyles while attracting new business to its communities. The residents of Georgina are known in the GTA as being the “outdoors type”. There isn’t a day that goes by where locals aren’t taking advantage of nature nearby.
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.

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

I was stuck in a sticky situation, trying to find a house that worked for my family and me. Joshua was very patient and professional. He gave me great advice and calmed me down when I needed it. When we found the right house we jumped on it and our strategy worked. Now I am happy to say that I will be moving shortly into my forever home thanks to Joshua. - Joel McPheeread more

Josh bought our house for us and sold our house. He was very professional and patient with us. We had a hard time finding our prefect house and 9 offers later we finally got our family home. During this process he was understanding, patient and encouraging to us. As a buyer it was very frustrating looking at over 60 houses, but josh worked with us and keep us sane and motivated. As for selling the house, he did a GREAT JOB and got us LOTS offers, and sold for over asking. I HIGHLY recommend josh for buying or selling a house. He knows his stuff! Thanks for finding us our dream home! - Paige Bremaudread more
