"Needed to upgrade from my two-bedroom apartment for a bigger space; a house. Right from step one, when I applied online, they assigned me with the perfect Realtor. Got me a great offer on it and was helping me narrow down new joints out near a fantastic school district."

Whitby is a town in Durham Region. Whitby is located in Southern Ontario east of Ajax and west of Oshawa, on the north shore of Lake Ontario, and is home to the headquarters of Durham Region.
It had a population of 128,377 at the 2016 census and it is approximately 20 km (12 mi) east of the Toronto borough of Scarborough, and it is known as a commuter suburb in the eastern part of the Greater Toronto Area. While the southern portion of Whitby is predominantly urban and an economic hub, the northern part of the municipality is more rural and includes the communities of Ashburn, Brooklin, Myrtle, and Myrtle Station.
This town borders Ajax to the west, Pickering to the northwest, the Township of Scugog to the north, and Oshawa to the east. Since at least the mid 1990s, the development of subdivisions to accommodate population growth has proceeded in a mostly northward direction.
Whitby Township (now the Town of Whitby) was named after the seaport town of Whitby, Yorkshire, England.
In addition to Whitby, Yorkshire, the Town of Whitby is also officially twinned with Longueuil, Quebec, and Feldkirch, Austria.
