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.

I was very happy with the whole experience working with Joshua. He’s professional yet fun, knowledgeable yet down to earth. He’s very quick to respond to any text messages and always made himself available. He gave me time to consider whatever options I needed to chose. I would highly recommend him to buy or sell your home. - Esther Laytonread more
I recently purchased my first home and couldn't be happier with my experience. Josh walked me through the entire process before we started and was there every step of the way for anything I needed. Going through a home with Josh is quite the experience. He knows what to look for, and gives an honest and fair evaluation of each home. My interests and concerns were always the top priority and never felt pressured or pushed into something I wasn't sure about. When I finally found the right home, there were multiple offers, Josh knew I didn't want to miss out on it so he used his expertise and experience to make sure the sellers took our offer. It's not always about money. Thank you again Josh! - Ryan Tremblayread more

Josh has been our realtor since we first entered the housing market 7 years ago. He helped us buy our first home then sell our starter home and upgrade to a family home a few years later. Josh really takes the time to sit down and get to know his clients - what their needs, wishes and goals are. Truthfully, you never really feel like a client with Josh. He has a personalized approach and makes sure you're comfortable every step of the way. Even after the real estate transaction is complete, he’s always available by phone or e-mail to answer any questions you may have about the housing market, property taxes, etc. I highly recommend Josh Campbell for all your real estate needs. - Lisa Starkread more
