Saint-Lazare Real Estate
The Montérégie region juxtaposes the best of urban and rural living, and is as appealing to those seeking wide-open spaces as those craving the pace of a thriving economic environment. Situated on Montreal’s periphery, midway between Quebec City and Ottawa, Montérégie is a thriving economic and transportation hub. With livable communities and easy access to metropolitan centres, it’s no surprise the popularity of its neighbourhoods and real estate is on the rise.
The Montérégie region owes its name to the abundant hills that dot its landscape. It’s a large area, spanning over 11,000 square kilometres, with a unique blend of urban development, agriculture and cultural heritage. The region is home to the largest population of any of Quebec's regions besides Montreal, and spans the cities of Boucherville, Brossard, Granby, Longueuil, Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Saint-Hyacinthe, Sorel-Tracy and Vaudreuil-Dorion.
Montérégie’s landscape is bucolic, with rolling hills, farms, historical villages, vineyards, orchards and maple groves. While agriculture plays a key role in the economy of the "Garden of Quebec,” this is also a region with a diverse economy that is home to large corporations, major industrial parks and research centres. Priority growth industries in Montérégie are manufacturing, bio-food, research, the environment, tourism and transportation.
Those who live here experience all the benefits of this economic dynamism and of being close to Quebec City, Ottawa and the major centres in the northeastern United States. At the same time, those who live here also experience all the benefits of small community living — natural scenery, wide open spaces and a wealth of outdoor activities ranging from cycling and hiking to skiing and snowshoeing. Whether you’re looking for a family home or townhome in the heart of the city, or a private waterfront estate or cottage in the mountains, our Montérégie real estate experts can help you find a home to complement your unique lifestyle needs.
