THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Vibrant Communities

Ajax real estate is relatively more affordable than what you’ll find in Toronto, and it’s still possible to find new detached home and townhouse developments as the town hasn’t implemented the same densification policies as some other parts of the GTA have. Prospective homebuyers have scores of vibrant communities to choose to live and work within around the Town of Ajax.

Well-Located Schools And Amenities

The majority of the town is made up of winding residential streets with well-located schools and amenities like shopping and entertainment. Riverside–Hermitage has been rated the wealthiest neighbourhood in Durham Region, so well-heeled homebuyers may want to turn their attention to that upscale community.

GETTING AROUND TOWN

Living in Ajax is most comfortable with a car. Walk Score, a popular website that rates walkability, claims Ajax is a “car-dependent” place. Highway 401 runs through Central Ajax, while Highway 407 serves the North and Highway 412 is located to the east. GO Transit has a station located at the 401 interchange at Westney Road. From the local transit hub, commuters can take a GO Train and find themselves in Toronto in under an hour. More than 10 Durham Region Transit bus routes and two Go Bus routes also connect to the Ajax GO Station.

TESTIMONIALS

  • We lost our Mom a year ago and Michael was the reality that sold the house to her. Michael and his Son Paul and Craig are absolutely all genuine and loved helping us through it all, a design team that was able to tackle all our needs, including Painting, Carpet, lighting, switches devices, countertops, door knobs and kitchen cabinet hardware, I swear when they finished I thought it was a brand new Home , they then put it on the Market , the offers just kept coming , they worked with us from many miles apart, and made it possible for us to sign contracts online and they always explained everything and the house sold so fast we couldn’t believe it. These guys are the real thing they are seasoned professionals, they know what it takes and how to do it , and they all have a great smile and that means so much to us very trustworthy and just need to say thank you so much Michael, Paul, Craig Your the best.

  • Michael showed up at my door this past fall in september 2019. He was selling my neighbors home (which he sold in under a month). I was really apprehensive because he had been the third realtor who had come to my home to offer services. At the time I knew I needed to sell but I wasn't ready. But he was patient and very kind about it. 2 months later I took a chance and contacted him and his team. He and Paul (his son) showed up that night (November 4) and instantly felt supported and helped. They helped with the Reno's, negotiating a new dishwasher, moving boxes and removing the junk out of my home. They painted, fixed the walls, cleaned and photographed all under one week. The house was ready by December 16 2019. Under the advice of Michael, We listed my home on january 6 and it was sold by january 20 2020 due to their strong work ethic and ability to showcase a good product. The Baird team goes the bat for you. You will NOT be disappointed and I'm glad God led me to chose them. They really made me feel a part of the Baird team!

  • The only person to trust In Clarington with your home is Paul Baird. The knowledge and deep roots the Baird family has in Clarington make them the number 1 choice. Paul’s calm and educated approach both on a buying and selling standpoint is the best! When it comes to negotiating he’s the best to have in your corner. would give them a 5000-star review if I could!
