THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Nice Quiet Place

Uxbridge is a nice quiet place to live. The neighbourhoods in Uxbridge are typically named by the development company that built the subdivisions, but Quaker Village is one with the most traditional name for the area. It is located on the west side of the town and is home to a large park called Quaker Common which has a pond, open field space, and walking trails. It is close to the Uxbridge Arena & Recreation Centre on Brock Street West. 

Detached Homes

Other neighbourhoods in Uxbridge include Barton Farm Estates, Estates of Avonlea, and Foxfire Country Estates. Each has similarly designed roads and detached homes, as well as bordering farmland to one side. Hamlets outside of the town of Uxbridge include Zephyr, Altona, Leaskdale, Coppin’s Corners, Glen Major Forsythe Glenn, Glen Major, Glasgow, Goodwood, Udora, Roseville, Sandford, and Siloam.

GETTING AROUND TOWN

Driving to the suburbs of Pickering, Ajax, Whitby, and Oshawa will take approximately 30-40 minutes. For workers going to Newmarket, Aurora, and Richmond Hill, there are many small highways to take, including Bloomington Road and Elgin Mills Road East. It should take between 30 and 40 minute by car to commute to these areas, but snow can play a factor in the winter causing major slowdowns. Despite having Durham Region Transit having bus service in the area, commuting by public transit is very difficult and will take more than an hour to get to any dense urban area.

Baird Real Estate Client Testimonials

TESTIMONIALS

  • After poor experiences with competing agents, we decided to give the Baird team a call. They were quick to answer the phone and presented a clear knowledge of current market conditions and pricing. They were prompt to visit our residence, providing consultation and overviewing their listing process. The diversity of the team offers a unique advantage for both purchasing and selling. Paul and Craig were able to provide both insight and resources critical to ensure that our house sold for top dollar. Leveraging top contractors and a strong staging team, we were blown away by the exceptional presentation of our home. During the offer period, the team was both firm and strategic, ensuring that we received the best price for our sale. When purchasing, Paul and Craig were extremely patient and did not make us feel pressured to close a deal. We viewed several properties prior to submitting an offer. In a multiple offer environment, Paul and Craig still managed to negotiate a fair price. We have shared the Baird team with friends and family. Highly recommended!

    Paul M

  • Paul, Craig and Michael are consummate professionals. With a keen focus on strategy, these kind gentleman employed strategic measures based upon the current market conditions which not only got our home sold within 5 days of listing, but also $250k over asking. We received 22 offers on a home that we thought would be immensely difficult to sell. Due to their sound knowledge and expertise, we had a smooth experience and transaction with the buyer as well. Paul and Craig maintained the highest level of ethics during the entire process; showing us that there is no one we would prefer to work with for such a large and impactful transaction in our family’s life. We highly recommend working with the Baird Realtor Team. They are the real deal. I imagine other agents will take note of their successes for many years to come.

    Moazzam Pathan

  • We were very nervous about selling the home we have lived in for 25 years. The Baird Team came highly recommended by another family member so we hired them to sell our home. We are so happy we went with them. They met with us a few times to explain the process and were always available to answer our many questions. Mike, Craig and Paul were very easy to talk to and put our minds at ease several times throughout the process. A special shout out to Craig for all of the work he did on our behalf . Thank you for making such a major life decision run so smoothly. Karen and Greg Noel

  • We can't say enough about the Baird Real Estate Team. They truly went above and beyond the call of duty for us. We were in the process of walking away from our dream home; when collectively, Paul, Michael and Craig came up with a creative solution that resulted in us being able to realize our dream. When it came time to sell our home, they did an outstanding job with the presentation of our house, and organizing an effective sales strategy, resulting in a better than expected final outcome. They are the utmost professionals and we would urge anyone looking for a real estate agent to look no further than the Baird Real Estate Team. We will be forever grateful. Bob & Sue Hollaway

We had the pleasure of working with Paul, Craig & Michael over the past year and highly recommend any member of the team when looking for guidance and support during a purchase or a sale of your home or property. Thank you to the whole team for helping us realize our dream property/home purchase and for selling our current home with the very best outcome.

    P Schmid

  • It was an absolute pleasure to work with Michael and his son Paul.
    Within minutes of meeting them I knew they were the right real estate agents for my family.
    They made the entire experience of purchasing a new home a complete pleasure and I had complete trust that they had our best interests in mind.
    I would recommend them to anyone in need of an agent and will work with them again when my family is ready to move again.

    Maja Samborski

  • Paul, Craig and Michael were amazing to deal with when our late parent’s home had to be sold. They were knowledgeable, sincere, and understanding. I can't emphasize enough how their warmth and compassion helped make this emotional transaction relatively stress free. When help was needed with a specific concern, they told us not to worry and to leave it to them. They followed through and easily dealt with the issue. Whether you are buying or selling, I strongly encourage you to give Paul, Craig and Michael a call. They are absolutely terrific!
