Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” – Leonardo da Vinci

Certainly for many of us that live and work north of the city, our homes are more than just a retreat. We have purposely created an environment that combines a desire for professional satisfaction with a great quality of life. Living an hour from Toronto offers so many great places to live, work and play.

Small-town life in the communities of Aurora, Brock, East Gwillimbury, Uxbridge and Whitchurch/Stouffville offers a host of benefits that is food for the soul. The rolling hills of Uxbridge, the private enclaves in East Gwillimbury and Whitchurch/Stouffville and the open fields of colourful farmland dotted across the landscape in Brock & Uxbridge are examples of the natural beauty of these areas. The progressive culture, lively downtowns, local food and good schools have placed us front and center as some of the best places to live in Southern Ontario.

Being away from the hectic pace that city life commands, living north of Toronto makes country/waterfront living ideally suited to the new way of life. Technology allows us to run our businesses from home or at least work at home some of the time, and our lifestyle is a big selling point for those of us that place a premium on the ability to seamlessly combine work and play.

We are here to help you make your transition to your new country home as effortlessly as possible.
