When I speak with clients new to the Surrey or Vancouver area (and even clients who have grown up in the Fraser Valley or Lower Mainland) I often get the question: Where is Newton?

Newton is located at the heart of Surrey and is the most populated community in Surrey, which is the 12th largest city in Canada.

Reasons to Choose Newton Real Estate

Whether or not Newton is at the top of your list for desirable neighborhoods there are several unique aspects to the community and setting that I find intriguing:

  • Newton has over 50 parks to enjoy
  • 35% of Newton’s surroundings is actively farmed (think fresh air, fresh produce and open space)
  • Over half the population in Newton is a visible minority making for cultural diversity
  • Extremely accessible transit system, and close to Highway 1 and the US Border Crossing make Newton a very central place to live.

Newton residents also benefit from a short 25 minute sky train ride to downtown Vancouver – perfect for afternoon adventures or commuting to work.
