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.

Hands down a five star Agent! - Jerri Lyonsread more
Hi, just a note to say thanks for all you have done for us throughout this process. As first time buyers, we had a lot of unanswered questions regarding the purchase of our home. Thank you for providing the answers to many of these and giving us informed advice on the homes that we visited! - Ann Smithread more
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 great for us first-time buyers! He was patient, friendly, quick to respond, and most importantly, trustworthy. We never felt any pressure to make an offer, and he steered us away from less-than-ideal properties. After several months, we finally found the perfect place and are beyond excited. Thanks for all your help and hard work, Josh! - Julia Jankowski & Ruben Arteagaread more
