We also highly recommend that - if you are buying a home and need a mortgage - you work with one of the best Corktown mortgage brokers at: https://www.gtamortgagepros.com/corktown/.
We are fully licensed real estate professionals ourselves, meaning that we must follow all rules and regulations in place in Ontario. All our Realtors are fully licensed and top professionals.
Our service has great reviews, amazing feedback and we have dozens of happy customers.
In addition to this, there is no obligation - if you don't like the Realtor we send you, we will send you another one - however, this has yet to happen in the years we have been running this service.
Finally, we don't make any money unless you are happy (see the next section).
We charge our Realtors a small fee - but they only pay it if there is a closed deal. So, if we send you a terrible Realtor who is useless and can't buy or sell a property for you, we don't make any money. This is why we only work with the best Realtors out there - otherwise we would not make any money ourselves. It is a win for us, a win for them and a win for you.
We have a free automated online home valuation report - check it out at this link: house appraisal.
Corktown is a residential neighbourhood in downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
It is just south of Regent Park and north of the Gardiner Expressway, between Parliament Street to the west and the Don River to the east, Queen Street East to Front Street East. Corktown contains many vacated industrial buildings, some in use by movie production, studios, or shops.
The West Don Lands, slated to be redeveloped over the next few years, will encompass the south-east corner of this area.
The neighbourhood's name is believed to have originated in the early 19th century when the area was an Irish ethnic enclave, particularly for Irish emigrants from County Cork. Another possible suggestion is that the presence of a [[Distillery District}distillery]], breweries and cork-stopper manufacturers in the vicinity may have secured the nickname.
Protestants could not afford the lofty pew rents at nearby St. James Cathedral (Anglican) and this led to the building of their own Little Trinity Anglican Church in 1843 on King Street East. Little Trinity Church is Toronto's oldest surviving church building, its cornerstone laid on July 20, 1843.
