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.

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
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
My wife and I have been close friends with Josh for years. Although many would suggest that working with friends is not wise. It was different with Josh. We knew that we would be working with someone that treated us the same as anyone else, friends or not. He listened, he empathized and understood our needs. He was able to bring calm to an otherwise stressful situation. We would recommend him to anyone we know. - Brandon & Jodi Chapmanread more
Joshua recently sold my home in Newmarket. It was my family home of nearly 40 years. He made sure to take care of all my needs throughout the entire process. He also helped me find a condo to move to for this next transition of my life. He was fabulous! He was able to keep the calm during a very emotional process. Thank You Josh. - Carol Alfenoreread more
Josh was recommended to me by my son who had worked with him for the purchase of his first home. In our initial visit, Josh recommended some changes to the property and home in order to obtain the maximum value when sold. The changes were made and as promised Josh delivered. Working with Josh was a dream. He is very personable, respectful and was sensitive to our needs. He is very knowledgeable of the market and the process was seamless. Josh was patient. No pressure and prompt to return calls and emails. Great market for sellers very stressful for buyers with multiple offers and bidding wars. He reduced my stress level by daily assurance that "all would be okay and don't worry ". And it was. Found our new home on Good Friday. Josh is definitely a golden thread in the tapestry of our journey. I highly recommend him and wish him much success. - Martine Tremblayread more
