New to the area? Here is a quick-start guide to the towns we serve most, on Rochester’s east side. We can also help you find a home in any area of Monroe or Ontario County, including the city of Rochester and the city of Canandaigua.
Finger Lakes Region
The Finger Lakes region is the area surrounding 11 glacial-carved lakes. Besides all of the on-the-water activities you’d expect living near these lakes, the region is also home to hundreds of wineries and farm-to-table restaurants. Our home neighborhoods are close to Casa Larga Vineyards, Fairport Brewing and the Canandaigua Wine Trail. The communities of Victor and Farmington in Ontario County are wonderful places to live.
The city of Rochester is a large metropolitan area filled with cultural attractions, great places for food and nightlife, large annual events and festivals and of course, wonderful neighborhoods. On the east side of the city, you’ll find the towns of Pittsford, Perinton, Penfield, Brighton, Webster, Irondequoit and the village of Fairport.
The Town of Perinton
Perinton is a 34-square-mile community centered around the historic and picturesque Erie Canal. The town has been cited as a “Top 100 Best Places to Live in America” by Money Magazine and deemed a “Model Community” by the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle newspaper. This is a reflection of the town’s quality planning, extensive recreation programs, innovative open space and agricultural preservation programs, outstanding parks and trail system and diversity of commerce and industry.

The Village of Fairport
The Village of Fairport is also located on the Erie Canal, and is a small, tight-knit community within the town of Perinton. Boaters, canoes, kayaks, and tour boats enjoy the waterway, while the old towpath is occupied by bikers and runners. Fairport is a charming and quaint canal town, but is also close to downtown Rochester - it’s just a 15 minute drive. Learn more: Fairport Village website, Canal Days Festival, Fairport Schools.
