Successful relocations are based on informed decisions

The key to any successful relocation is finding the right neighborhood to call home. Our orientation tours are designed to provide an overview of the Toronto area including neighborhoods, schools, health care facilities, as well as shopping, cultural, recreational, and sporting facilities, and other local amenities.  Discussions and options around commuting distances from various neighborhoods will provide you with enough information to make an informed decision. Every tour is curated based on your personal lifestyle preferences and wants. We can set up a tour of Toronto before a job has been accepted, so you can get an up-close and personal sneak peek to ensure that the city meets all expectations.

City tours can include:

  • An overview of the city, the suburbs and towns, with a visit to neighborhoods or locations that may meet your needs
  • Public transportation overview
  • City highlights to see the best of Toronto
  • Visit areas of specific interest based on your/family lifestyle – for example, if you enjoy the outdoors or sports, there are places to see!
  • We can arrange tickets for shows and events
  • Restaurant recommendations and reservations – maybe a local favorite in a neighbourhood under consideration

How to you choose the right neighbourhood and home?

This is where the fun begins. Most clients tell us that finding a home is their priority – and we get it. Finding the right neighborhood and home sets up the future for your family. Your neighbourhood is where you'll find your local coffee shop, playground, dog park, and market and establish roots. After completing a need assessment, we take your budget, must-haves, non-negotiables, and wish list of features for your new home and neighborhood to help you find the perfect place to call home. 

We only work with expert, vetted local realtors to ensure you find an ideal space for you and your family. Then, we create a home search roadmap that factors things like your lifestyle, activities, transportation needs, commute tolerance, and of course, if you are looking for green space, urban living, or both!

From negotiating a lease or making sound buying decisions, we are here to prioritize your needs and handle all the administrative aspects of finding and securing your new home.  We are aware of local real estate customs and pitfalls so we can look out for your best interest.  At New Roots we are here to help you navigate, helping you choose the right new community.

Know your options for the short and medium term

Sometimes, a simple and streamlined relocation solution is best especially if you are relocating for a shorter period of time. We will help you review your short-term rental options and secure your ideal location with all the amenities you need.

When moving, sometimes short- or medium-term accommodations are necessary as often household goods follow by several weeks or months. In these cases, it is essential to arrive at your new destination knowing your short-term accommodation needs have been arranged in your new community.

Our role is to find you appropriate temporary housing with a home-like environment, including furnished accommodation with comfortable floor plans, corporate housing, furnished rental suites, or long-term hotel suites.

Choose the right educational experience for your children.

We understand one of the most important priorities as a parent is choosing the right educational experience for your children whether they are starting daycare of finishing high school.  Selecting the right school in combination with the right neighborhood is of the utmost importance. What you are looking for in a school may impact the housing roadmap we develop for viewings and school tours. Rest assured that our services allow you to feel confident that the educational needs for your children will be met.

Our educational discussions concentrate on:

  • An overview of the public, independent, private, boarding, religious based, and vocational school options
  • Review daycare options including daycare centers, home daycare facilities and nanny services
  • Discuss enrollment, application details and deadlines
  • Provide valuable information to guide you through the registration and application process 
  • Arrange tours if applicable
  • Connect you with vetted educational consultants should you require more in-depth guidance

At New Roots, we understand the importance of the right education. We support you through the entire process!
