"I had only heard bad stories about Realtors and sadly, I needed to deal with one because I wanted my own place. The Realtor GTA set me up with was exceptional - knew exactly where I was coming from and, best of all, she knew just what I wanted. Now I have a great two bedroom home and a new friend."

West Hill is a neighbourhood in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
It is located in the eastern end of the city, in the suburb of Scarborough.
It is roughly bounded by Scarborough Golf Club Road and a branch of Highland Creek on the west, the CNR railway tracks and Lake Ontario on the south, and Highland Creek on the north-east.
The name comes from its elevated position on the west side of Highland Creek, a deep glacial ravine.
Until after World War II, West Hill was largely rural, although the stretch of Kingston Road (including what is now Old Kingston Road) running through it had some commercial development, some even dating back to the late 19th century.
The neighbourhood's oldest remaining buildings tend to be along this stretch.
West Hill has a good mix of commercial establishments far more typical of an older neighbourhood than a new suburb. Fast food establishments do not dominate and there are many sit-down restaurants featuring a variety of cuisines including, Canadian Chinese, Caribbean and Middle Eastern, echoing the ethnic diversity of the neighbourhood.
There are two supermarkets and numerous smaller food outlets.
The area is well served by physicians, dentists and lawyers and features three pharmacies, including both major chains.
