WELCOME TO RICHMOND HILL

Richmond Hill has had a history of growth explosions! The town’s boundary increased from 1700 acres to 2700 acres when the town limits were expanded to include parts of Whitchurch-Stouffville, Markham, Vaughan and King in 1970. Jay Chauhan founded “The Richmond Hill Association for Multiculturalism” in 1989 which led to a population explosion with new people discovering the area for the first time and making it their home. As a result, Richmond Hill has developed many multicultural and diverse neighbourhoods and is still considered one of Canada’s fastest-growing towns.

REAL ESTATE INSIGHTS

Richmond Hill continues to see extensive population growth. Due to its close proximity and accessibility to Toronto, more and more people are calling Richmond Hill home. With the extension of the TTC subway to Vaughan, it has only driven prices higher. The current price of an average detached home in Richmond Hill is well over a million dollars. If the plans of the next subway extension to Highway 7 come to fruition, we will see the condo world explode in Richmond Hill. Once considered a small town and referred to as the "rose" capital of Canada, Richmond Hill has flourished. It is now a highly sought after community for those looking to raise a family in the same town where they can have a successful career.

PEOPLE & LIFESTYLE

Located in the southern point of York Region just north of Toronto, Richmond Hill is a prosperous region. With multicultural communities and a wide variety of companies in the areas of finance, healthcare and small business. The town of Richmond Hill has an unlimited range of housing choices from cottage-style homes in mature neighbourhoods to brand new subdivisions and condominiums. The multicultural nature of Richmond Hill is reflected in its schools and churches across many nationalities and faiths. One of Richmond Hill’s great benefits is its location, being only a 10-minute drive to the country or 15 minutes to Toronto.

INSIDER TIPS

Parks & Recreation

Richmond Hill is next door to the fast-paced lifestyle you crave, yet it offers the laid-back and hometown feeling of living in the country where you can go for a walk and hear a “good morning” from passing neighbours. With its vast amount of local parks and trails in the area, families, dog walkers, joggers and bicyclists get to choose from different scenic routes every day. Two local libraries and community centres offer a wide variety of programs for everyone. If you are looking to spend some time on a beautiful lakeshore, check out Lake Wilcox. Sun worshippers love to plan a day at the lake with its popular picnic areas, splash pad and playground for the kids. Winter turns Wilcox lake into a tranquil place for brisk walks along the boardwalk or cross-country skiing.

Summertime movies in the park are a huge hit with families and friends. You should also keep an eye out for Richmond Hill’s community carnivals that happen throughout the summer and winter months.

Testimonials
 

I recently purchased my first home and couldn't be happier with my experience. Josh walked me through the entire process before we started and was there every step of the way for anything I needed. Going through a home with Josh is quite the experience. He knows what to look for, and gives an honest and fair evaluation of each home. My interests and concerns were always the top priority and never felt pressured or pushed into something I wasn't sure about. When I finally found the right home, there were multiple offers, Josh knew I didn't want to miss out on it so he used his expertise and experience to make sure the sellers took our offer. It's not always about money. Thank you again Josh! - Ryan Tremblay

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 Chapman

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 Chan

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 Draper
