We also highly recommend that - if you are buying a home and need a mortgage - you work with one of the best Pickering mortgage brokers at: https://www.gtamortgagepros.com/pickering/.
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.
Pickering (2016 population 91,771) is a city located in Southern Ontario, Canada, about 35 miles east of Toronto in Durham Region.
It was occupied for centuries by the Iroquoian-speaking Huron (now known as the Wyandot ).
This was Aboriginal territory for thousands of years.
The Wyandot (called the Huron by Europeans), who spoke an Iroquoian language, were the historic people living here in the 15th century. Archeological remains of a large village have been found here, known as the Draper Site. Later, the Wyandot moved northwest to Georgian Bay, where they established their historic homeland.
There they encountered French explorers in the early 17th century, followed by missionaries and fur traders.
The southern part of the city is mainly suburban, with industrial areas restricted to the area around Pickering Nuclear Generating Station. Most of the suburban areas were built as subdivisions after World War II, starting in the area around Frenchman's Bay. Prior to the war, the few suburban areas in the township were the communities of Dunbarton, Fairport Beach, Liverpool Market, and Rouge Hill. Squires Beach, located by the lakeshore in the southeast part of the city, is now a ghost town.
