Led by Timothy Rogers, a Quaker from Vermont; a group of families decided to settle in King Township in 1801. They created approximately 40 farms and constructed the area’s first gristmills and sawmills. The township expanded its territory in 1851 by annexing the Holland Marsh from West Gwillimbury, which greatly increased the value of their farming community. The town attracted even more settlers and businesses when the King Train Station was built in 1853. King City’s original Hogan's Inn and Crawford Wells General Store are historic landmarks that are still open for business. You have got to check them out for yourself!
King has seen a major boom in real estate. Home prices have been increasing by double digits for the past five years and are expected to continue this way for the foreseeable future. There are many new subdivisions starting to fill in the farmland that King is known for, however, that doesn’t mean that the farmland is completely disappearing; the town ensures that green space is a key consideration in all of their planning. King is only 30 minutes north of the City of Toronto and 45 minutes to cottage country. It is no surprise that this area has seen such a boom as of late. The renewed vision of King Road as the town’s main street has revitalized the entire area. The future will see many new home projects and condominiums being built to accommodate the ever-growing population.

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

We had the pleasure of working with Josh over the past ten years. First as our property manager and then as our agent for the purchase of our first home. Josh always had our best interest in mind, he helped us from start to finish ensuring that our closing went smoothly. We look forward to working with Josh down the road for all of our future real estate needs. - Denis and Reagan Amitiread more
My wife and I have had the privilege of working with Josh on 2 occasions. Josh is professional, courteous and friendly. He is always available to answer questions, and his real estate knowledge is second to none. He was able to sell our first home for full price with no conditions on the first day of listing. We were also able to secure our second home thanks to some insight from Josh. Using Josh's guidance we wrote a letter to the home owner explaining my wife's connection to the property (she had grown up a couple doors down, and had actually swam in their pool). There were multiple offers of the same price, but we were able to secure the property partly because of that letter. If you are looking for a real estate agent who knows real estate, will be open and honest with you, and will work to get you the best deal, then Josh Campbell is a great choice. - Neil & Laura Draperread more

Very thankful to have found him! - Ahmed Attallaread more
