Paris, Ontario

The History of Paris, Ontario.

Voted as the “Prettiest Little Town in Canada”, and known as the “Cobblestone Capital of Canada”, Paris Ontario is located in Brant County, just outside of Brantford. This small town is known for its stunning architecture, including several buildings made of cobblestones taken from the surrounding rivers, the Grand and the Nith.

The town was first settled on 7 May 1829, and founded by an American immigrant, Hiram Capron. Contrary to popular belief the town’s name doesn’t come from its European counterpart. The name comes from the gypsum deposits in the area, a mineral used in the production of plaster of Paris, a popular home building material in the 1700 and 1800s.  Soon after the foundation of the town, a grist mill and iron foundry were built, a gypsum mine was established, and several other industries made Paris their home.

The community also has a rich agricultural history, with several farming families owning land on the outskirts of the main town.

Today, this thriving community boasts an up-and-coming local food scene, a downtown filled with small boutiques, and outdoor activities along the Grand and Nith Rivers.

I could not imagine going through this process with anyone other than Susie. Her level of client support is second to none. She advised as best she could, and kept us reasonably calm while securing our dream home in crazy market with 12 other bids. And when it came to getting our old house ready for sale, she truly went above and beyond. If you are thinking about moving, give her a call!

Good Morning Susie We would like to thank you for everything that you did for us during the sale of our house and the purchase of our new home!  You went above and beyond in more ways than one!  From painting and staging to cleaning and helping move. We couldn't have gone through this experience without your help.  Thank you so much!

We recently were looking to sell two homes and buy our dream home in Ayr. Neither of us were really looking forward to the prospect of selling our homes but Susie made it easy. She was with us every step of the way and guided us through the whole process diligently and professionally. She even made arrangements for my dogs when they were showings when I was working. I can’t say enough about all her help and advice. Susie never failed to answer any question, answer our calls, emails and texts that we continually sent her. She made the whole process pretty painless. Needless to say, we were able to sell both our houses and find our dream home in Ayr which I am not at all sure we could have done without Susie. We are forever grateful for all her help and advice along the way. We recommend her to anyone we know who is thinking of selling and/or buying as I honestly don’t think you can find a more personable, honest, hardworking, friendly person to guide you through the whole process We are very proud to consider her as a good friend and can’t say enough good things about her. In our opinion, she is the best agent around and also an amazing person.
