We also highly recommend that - if you are buying a home and need a mortgage - you work with one of the best Regent Park mortgage brokers at: https://www.gtamortgagepros.com/regent-park/.
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 https://www.gtarealestatepros.ca/free-home-valuation-report/.
Regent Park is a neighbourhood located in downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada, built in the late 1940s as a public housing project.
The project is managed by Toronto Community Housing.
It used to be the centre of the Cabbagetown neighbourhood, and is bounded by Gerrard Street East to the north, River Street to the east, Shuter Street to the south, and Parliament Street to the west. Regent Park, and adjoining areas of the Old City's east end, were home to some of Toronto's historic slum districts in the early 1900s. Most residents of the area were poor and working-class people of British and Irish descent, along with smaller numbers of continental European Jewish and Macedonian immigrants. Concern over crime and social problems in the area, as well as substandard housing, led to plans for affordable housing during the Second World War.
These plans came to fruition soon after the end of the war, when the Regent Park North public housing project was approved in 1947. Families began to move into Regent Park North in 1949, but construction continued into the 1950s.
The last families moved into Regent Park North in 1957.
In subsequent years, more public housing units were built in Toronto, including Regent Park South, which was completed in 1960. Various community groups, including the Salvation Army, have been highly active in promoting a positive sense of community and community representation, and in pursuing a higher quality of life.
The CRC, which has operated since 1965, offers healthy meals, free clothing, showers and laundry facilities, housing supports, drop-in, life skills and food skills programs. Sources: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regent_Park, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regent_Park_Neighbourhood_Initiative
