Newmarket is a fantastic community for families and individuals looking for a place to call home as an alternative to the “city life” with all of the same amenities and more. In 1800, one of the founders of Newmarket, Timothy Rogers; a Quaker from Vermont, fell in love with the area when he arrived with his family. He was so inspired by its natural beauty and accessibility that he asked other families to join him and together they built a town that became known as Newmarket. It was originally a fur-trading community which transitioned to a farming settlement. Residents set up farmers’ markets, built gristmills, saw mills and eventually the Tannery. Timothy Rogers’ entrepreneurial spirit was passed along to his descendants Edward S. Rogers; a radio pioneer and his son, the late Ted Rogers; founder of Rogers Communications. Many century homes and original buildings have been designated as historical properties with each one having it’s own plaque commemorating the original pioneers that helped lay the foundation for Newmarket.
Newmarket has experienced rapid population growth over the past twenty years. While quickly approaching 90,000 people and expecting to reach 110,000 by 2026, the region has been actively investing in the town’s infrastructure for the future. Newmarket is committed to updating its roadways to accommodate the growing local traffic. This includes a rapid transit system along Davis Drive and Yonge Street. The new transit lines will connect all Go Trains, Go Buses, Viva buses and Municipal buses along its major corridors which are home to Southlake Regional Health Care Centre, Upper Canada Mall, York Region Head Offices, condo developments and much more. Being consecutively selected as one of the best places to live in Canada, it is no wonder that prices of homes are continually on the rise.

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
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

I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for exceptional service. - Jenn Avardread more
I was stuck in a sticky situation, trying to find a house that worked for my family and me. Joshua was very patient and professional. He gave me great advice and calmed me down when I needed it. When we found the right house we jumped on it and our strategy worked. Now I am happy to say that I will be moving shortly into my forever home thanks to Joshua. - Joel McPheeread more
