Chestermere Lake is one of Alberta’s fastest growing communities. Chestermere is actually across the road from Calgary’s Eastern border.

If you are looking for Chestermere Info, as Chestermere Realtors for 24 years we know this area.   We have enjoyed the Chestermere Lifestyle since 1991.

When we bought our home here in 1990, lots of people thought we were crazy buying on Chester-slough!  Now people all around Alberta are discovering what we’ve known all along – the quality of life, recreational opportunities and small town atmosphere make Chestermere a fantastic place to live! Your family can have a resort lifestyle while you work in the city just a short drive away.  We encourage you to find out for yourselves if this is the right community for you.

The lake is 3.5 miles long by a half a mile wide and covers 750 acres. The Bow River feeds the lake with mountain, spring and glacier run-off. Chestermere Lake has a complete water change every five days.

It is also the time to become involved in the many clubs and activities in the community. A two-lane bike path connects to all the paths in Calgary.

Chestermere Realtors

Marjorie and Doug McKay in 1992 selling lakefront homes by boat.

We have 24 years of experience in the Chestermere market. We have lived here for 25 years. Doug has sold over 300 homes here, 78 lakefront. Marjorie has sold 156 homes in the Chestermere area and 44 lakefront homes. We have actually seen the homes that have sold. We know if a home is priced right, or if it is priced too high. We also know which homes are exceptional values. Doug ranks in the top 10% overall of realtors with the Calgary Real Estate Board. (2001 to 2016). Marjorie is the broker, but she still ranks in the top 1/3 of realtors overall within the Calgary Real Estate Board. (2001 to 2016) We own the local RE/MAX office right on East Chestermere Drive.

We Know the Chestermere and Area Real Estate Market!

Chestermere is a small city, with many different sub-divisions, builders, and features. In Calgary most homes in a subdivision are built within 3 years and are of a common style and size. In Chestermere homes can be 20 years apart in age, and thousands of feet different in size. Then there is location and lot size. We have homes on 1/2 acres, canal lots, waterfront homes, golf course homes, and homes along the highway. We have award winning builders, and builders that are just building one or two homes a year. It is very helpful to have a realtor that knows the area. All Calgary realtors will say they work in Chestermere, now that it is popular, but do they really know the area? Have they been in the homes that have sold? Do they know the builder’s track record?  Is it a seller’s market or a buyer’s market.  The Chestermere market is not the same as the Calgary market.  We know what is selling, what price range or style of home has high inventory, what is rare and what is special about a home.  We know when to negotiate, and when to accept an offer.  We have a marketing program that includes digital marketing by postal code and IP address, we advertise in the Homes and Land magazine, in the Calgary Real Estate News and in the Anchor.  We advertise our listings on Facebook, YOUTUBE, Twitter, The ActiveRain network.  We use the RealBird text to message app.

When you hire us as your real estate advisers, you get us. We are hands on and not too busy to work with you personally.

It will not cost you anything to use us to buy a home. Real Estate fees are paid by the seller of the property. Usually 50% goes to the listing REALTOR® (their representative) and 50% to the buyer’s representative. When you engage us to work for you, we will work for you and look out for your best interests every step of the way. Even new home builders have the cost of paying a REALTOR® to assist you – built into the cost of the home. It won’t cost you any more to use a REALTOR®, or any less to not use your own REALTOR®. But please call us before you start to look at homes, if you register with a builder without us or view homes (other than open houses) with other REALTORS® we cannot help you.

If you are considering selling your Chestermere home. Give us a call, or fill out the home evaluation form. Home evaluations are always free, and we won’t hound you to list before you are ready. You will get the accurate information that you need to make a decision. When pricing a home it is crucial to use the right comparable properties. We have been in the homes that have sold, and we know the condition that they were in when they sold. We know the different communities, some are more desirable than others. The wrong price on your home is an expensive mistake that you will pay for. Remember it is what you end up with in your pocket that matters.
