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.

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.

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

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!

My son and I were looking for a one bedroom apartment in Markham and the competition was fierce. Andrew Samwel and Joshua Campbell represented us and worked tirelessly to find us a place under a fierce, extremely competitive September market! He went that extra mile in the application process staying engaged with not only us but by telephone and e-mail to the landlord’s representative to ensure that we made it to the short list of applicants and finally to the successful candidate to acquire the apartment. He and Josh were also engaged afterwards to ensure we were satisfied with everything and that all paperwork was successfully completed to allow us to take possession and move into the apartment. We would highly recommend this team of professionals to any prospective tenant seeking accommodation in the Toronto area. Thanks Andrew and Josh again for your efforts! - Paul Dunbarread more
Joshua is an extremely knowledgable, responsible and caring professional. He went to great lengths to explain us the features of the property that we were interested in and patiently answered the many questions we have had. Besides, he was very punctual, prompt in his responses and, generally, very easy to deal with. I will definitely work with him again in the future and highly recommend him to everyone who is looking to buy/rent property in the area. - Andrei Malkoread more
