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.

We worked with Joshua to sell my Father’s home. He listened to what we wanted to achieve and made great recommendations on staging and price. After taking his recommendations, the house sold in just 3 days for what we expected! We were very happy with the experience and I would not hesitate to refer Joshua to anyone I know who is looking to buy or sell a property. -Matthew - Matthew P.read more
We had a great experience working with Joshua for the sale of our first home and purchase of our second. He was not only extremely knowledgable, but very approachable and trustworthy. He made great recommendations in preparing our home for listing which led to selling over asking, and helped us get into our new house with confidence and expertise. We have recommended him to many friends already. Thank you Josh! - Glenn & Amber Brownread more
Joshua was an incredible resource both helping us find our home and selling our old place when the time came. He is a strong negotiator and provided a wide range of value add services leading up and following closing - it is just how he works! While, we found our “forever home” if we ever choose to sell or buy another place. We’ll be working with Josh. - Justin Ayre & Krista Phillipsread more
I have only been working with Joshua for a short time but it is very easy to see his passion for the industry and his dedication to his clients. You can't possibly know the personal time and effort he puts into each and every one of his listings. It is a pleasure to come to work each day with someone who truly cares. - Alexis McCueread more
We met Josh through a mutual acquaintance, and that was our lucky day! Although we lived in Georgetown, after our first meeting with him we decided he was the agent who would sell our property and find us a new one that suited the life transition that we were making. He gave us very solid advice in terms of getting the house ready to sell, and on setting the selling price, and it sold in record time and at a record price. He showed us one perfect home in the area that we were looking in, and we are now happily settled in our new home thanks to Josh. Josh is a very dedicated and professional real estate agent, and we would highly recommend him to anyone who is in the market to buy or sell a property. - Jayne Brownread more
We had a great experience working with Josh to rent out our home. As first time landlords, the process was new to us, but Josh was patient, responsive, answered all of our questions and walked us through the entire process right up to and including the actual closing of the deal. Very thankful to have found him! - Ahmed Attallaread more
