"The Realtor we used sold our home for $133,000 more than any home had ever sold on our street. I think that says it all. She staged the home perfectly and ran an immaculate selling process - we could not have been happier with this service."

Newcastle is a community in the municipality of Clarington in Durham Region, Ontario, Canada.
The community inherits the former name of the present-day municipality which it belongs to.
Newcastle is located about 80 km east of Toronto, and about 18 km east of Oshawa and Bowmanville on Highway 401.
Newcastle was incorporated as a town in 1856.
It remained a small community until the 1990s, when new residential development began and the population quickly swelled. Newcastle had a jail in the late 1800s. Maps of Newcastle from those years have not been discovered.
The name "Town of Newcastle" was used from 1973-94 for the municipality now called the Municipality of Clarington.
The name was changed in 1994 to alleviate long standing confusion between the municipality as a whole and the community of the same name.
The community was commonly known as "Newcastle Village" to distinguish the two.
It was also a confusing fact that Bowmanville had a larger population than "Newcastle Village", and it also housed the former Town of Newcastle's municipal offices, causing some to believe the town should have been called "Bowmanville" instead of "Newcastle" during that period.
