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.

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 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! Thanks for finding us our dream home! - Paige Bremaudread more
