We also highly recommend that - if you are buying a home and need a mortgage - you work with one of the best Newmarket mortgage brokers at: https://www.gtamortgagepros.com/newmarket/.
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.
Newmarket is known as the “Heart of York Region”.
Indeed it is strategically situated right in the centre of York Region, bridging the gap between the predominantly urban municipalities to the south, and the largely rural municipalities to the north.
The York Region municipal offices are also based in Newmarket at 17250 Yonge Street.
This place history dates back to 1801, when a man by the name of Timothy Rogers led several Quaker families from Vermont and Pennsylvania to their new home in Canada. One of these settlers was Joseph Hill, who built a mill, and established a trading post on the Holland River. Hill is also credited with having built the first house, and the first store in Newmarket.
The name “Newmarket” originated from a popular farmers market that was held every Saturday.
This upstart “New Market” was said to rival the “Old Market”, which was the St. Lawrence Market in downtown Toronto.
The Holland River winds its way through Newmarket providing picturesque streetscapes and plenty of parkland. Fairy Lake just to the east of the downtown is a treasured Newmarket landmark.
