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.
It is possible to have the best of all worlds! Live, work and play in a township that has so many beaches, parks, conservation areas, year-round recreational activities and much, much more. 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. 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.
Georgina is proud to encourage creative expression through the arts with programs and shows at the Stephen Leacock Theatre, the Community Connection Centre and the Georgina Art Centre & Gallery. History buffs can discover more about Georgina’s roots by visiting the Georgina Pioneer Village, Eildon Hall Museum or the Georgina Military Museum.
Georgina is a very pet-friendly region. If by chance your pet happens to wander away after a hike on the trails, camping at a nearby park or from your back yard, the local animal control will take care of your happy wanderer. Animal control in the region is broken up into 2 sections: East and West. All pets found in these communities are picked up by Animal Control officers and taken to the Georgina Animal Shelter.
Georgina has a wide selection of schools in town including the multiple elementary schools from the public board and catholic school system. Georgina is home to two public secondary schools being Keswick High School and Sutton District High School. The closest private schools are to the south in Newmarket and Aurora.

We met Joshua four years ago as the selling agent on a cottage property we were considering on Lake Simcoe. Joshua was able to answer all our questions and respond to any concerns related to buying a leased land property on an island. What impressed us the most was the fact that the cottage was not a high value property, however Joshua treated us and provided the same professional service and guidance as if we were purchasing a million dollar home. That professionalism brought us back to Joshua two years later when we wanted to downsize. Joshua's deep knowledge of the real estate market and his extensive network enabled a quick and most satisfactory sale of our current home and purchase of a perfect retirement bungalow. Thank you Joshua! - Brian & Deborah Jacksonread more

Josh was recommended to me by my son who had worked with him for the purchase of his first home. In our initial visit, Josh recommended some changes to the property and home in order to obtain the maximum value when sold. The changes were made and as promised Josh delivered. Working with Josh was a dream. He is very personable, respectful and was sensitive to our needs. He is very knowledgeable of the market and the process was seamless. Josh was patient. No pressure and prompt to return calls and emails. Great market for sellers very stressful for buyers with multiple offers and bidding wars. He reduced my stress level by daily assurance that "all would be okay and don't worry ". And it was. Found our new home on Good Friday. Josh is definitely a golden thread in the tapestry of our journey. I highly recommend him and wish him much success. - Martine Tremblayread more
