We also highly recommend that - if you are buying a home and need a mortgage - you work with one of the best Don Mills mortgage brokers at: https://www.gtamortgagepros.com/don-mills/.
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.
Yes - we offer a free automated online home appraisal report - you can read more about it at how much is my house worth.
Don Mills is one of Toronto's best known and most popular neighbourhoods. Neighbourhood landmarks include the picturesque Donalda Golf and Country Club, and scenic Edwards Gardens.
The commercial/industrial sector of Don Mills serves as the head office for IBM Canada Ltd., Global Television Station, the Toronto Real Estate Board and many other prominent companies. Everything old is new once again. When the former Don Mills Shopping Centre opened in the 1960s it began as an outdoor shopping plaza and eventually as times and tastes changed it was retrofitted into an indoor shopping centre. Now the old shopping centre has now been transformed once again into the new Shops at Don Mills where shoppers can enjoy an outdoor retail experience.
The Don Mills area was first settled by Europeans in 1817.
The area was a considerable distance from the town of York, but the Don River provided an easy means of transportation, and also a source of power for a number of mills along its length. While the city of Toronto steadily expanded, the Don Mills area remained rural until after the Second World War.
It was cut off from the city by ravines to the south, east, and west. Only two roads connected to the area: York Mills Road and Don Mills Road.
In 1950 the area consisted of about 20 farms.
