Chestermere Real Estate Team

Our family has been Chestermere realtors since 1993.  That is 30 years of working together!  It has worked so well for us that our son Kevin McKay has joined our Chestermere Real Estate Team.

The secret is that we each have the areas in that we specialize.  Marjorie McKay loves marketing and promoting the listings.  Whether it is on our self-managed website, Facebook, blogging, or internet marketing Marjorie has mastered each of these platforms.  Marjorie has been marketing properties locally and nationally attracting buyers from areas like Toronto, Vancouver, and Northern Alberta.

Doug McKay specializes in acreage and lakefront properties.  He also shines in negotiating, treating your money like it was his own!

Kevin McKay is a licensed drone pilot and a videographer.  He is responsible for all of the images you see on our listings.  Having a drone video, and drone photography show off the exterior of the property, the neighborhood, the yard, and the proximity to parks, schools, and other amenities.  On acreages, it shows the rest of the property.  View our videos here.

Not many realtors are doing video tours of the homes that they list as there is quite a learning curve.  Homes with videos have 70% more views.  Kevin’s videos show what it would be like to walk through the home.  Once you click the start button there is nothing else to do.  Just sit back and enjoy the home.  We also include a floor plan with our listings so buyers can see what the layout is like and how their furnishings would fit.  Because this is all done in-house we have better control to emphasize the special features of a property.  We can also get your property on the market faster. Should the season change, we can redo the photos so the property looks current.

As more and more real estate agents are coming with buyers for the lake, we have found that they do not know what they do not know about Chestermere.  They do not know about lakefront retaining walls, the water depth at different locations, docks, boathouses, and retaining walls.  For this reason, Doug McKay attends the first showing on lakefront properties with agents that are unfamiliar with Chestermere.  View Lakefront listings here.

A lot of agents that are not familiar with acreages are showing acreages.  An acreage property is more than just a house. There is a water system, sewage system, and sometimes access to irrigation, and additional buildings  It also must be zoned for the use that the buyer intends to use it for.  Can they run a business, can they have horses, etc?  View acreage listings here.

One of our acreage sellers said to Doug, “when you show the property you show the barn, the well, the storage shed, the gardens, the second well.  These other realtors just show the house and then they leave.”   After we heard this, we met with realtors showing the property and walked them through the entire property.  This is what we now do with acreages.  It is more work for us, but the properties are being recognized for all of the assets that they possess.  It is all about getting an offer on the property and we work well with other realtors.

When it comes to the offer, we love to negotiate on your behalf. Knowing the market is imperative to successful negotiations.  As Chestermere realtors, we are aware of the competition, and we know if there were extenuating factors that affected the sales price.  We know how many comparable homes are on the market, and what the demand for a certain type of home has been.

While we are passionate about the Chestermere market, we also work in the greater Calgary area and sell many homes there. View homes we have sold here.

We look forward to meeting with you and discussing your goals.  Whether you are buying or selling, or just want to know where you stand with the equity in your home.  Please call us we would love to meet you.

Chestermere Then and Now!

Chestermere Then and Now!

.

So Lucky To Have Lived In Chestermere Lake For 30 Years!

One of the first things Doug and I agreed on was that we wanted to live on Chestermere Lake.  There is a huge difference between then and now.  30 years ago, Chestermere was not well-known, or well-respected.  When we told family and friends that we were putting in an offer on Chestermere they tried to talk us out of it.  We found a realtor that worked in the Chestermere market.  He showed us all the properties that were available, and as we drove by our current home, I said how much I liked the look of it.  He said it was for sale, but just off the market to “give it a rest”.  Then we put in an offer, and this has been our home for 31 years.

Chestermere Homes Are A Great Value.

It has always been our belief that Chestermere is a remarkable value when you compare it to homes elsewhere.  A mountain view is nice, but can you swim in it?  The lake communities are well-designed and beautiful, but you cannot run your motorboat on them.  Further, you will pay more for either of these options than you will for a comparable home on the lake.

Chestermere in 1991.

In 1991, Chestermere had 900 residents.  Children K-9 were bussed to Conrich school.  There was one playground on the East side of the lake, that was dilapidated and just sad.  The only store was Porter’s which had food services where you could get breakfast or a burger, you could pick up a few necessities like milk or bread.   The Inn was open and you could boat down for a great pizza.  That was it!  Everything else was in Calgary.  Doctors, Chiropractors, Dentists, daycare, etc.

There were no bike paths, and the roads were so full of potholes, that speeding was not a problem.  If you wanted to get to the West side of the lake from the East side there was no bridge, to walk across, you had to go to the 17 Ave. bridge and drive all the way around.

When we bought our home in 1991 the golf course was just under construction.  With the addition of the golf course and community City of Calgary water was piped in.  This bumped the average lakefront price from about $245,000 to $285,000.  The water in Chestermere had high iron content and turned everything yellow.  It also smelled bad.  This is the main reason that Chestermere did not develop much until after 1992.

For police, we had Constable Klater,  he handled everything from dog control, neighbour disputes.   If you were out driving late, he might stop to chat, just to find out you were driving your babysitter home.  He did not hassle residents, he just made sure you had a reason to be here.

There was only one building inspector, who only worked in Chestermere one day a week.  If he saw any building material in front of your house, he would stop by and see what you were doing.   So, people waited until the day after to start building projects.

The Community Center was the heart of the community.  They managed all extra-curricular activities.  Skating, soccer, baseball, hockey, curling, and youth activities.  The seniors’ group met there, and the playschool was also hosted there.  Plans are underway for a new community center, but the old one still serves the city.

Chestermere Today.

Mostly things have improved so much.   Chestermere has medical services, your choice of Separate or Private schools, roads that won’t wreck your car, playgrounds, bike paths, beaches, restaurants, health clubs, liquor stores, cannabis stores, grocery stores, pharmacies, daycare, a library, and Bus service to Calgary.  The City of Chestermere now does much of the city’s social programming.   Chestermere has a full RCMP detachment.

We now have a choice of separate & public schools.

Chestermere has a population of more than 20,000 people, and it will take you 30 minutes to get downtown instead of 20.

We have made a very rewarding career out of helping people buy and sell homes in Chestermere since 1993.  We believed in the Chestermere area before it became popular.  If you have any questions about living in Chestermere, please call.  We would love to help you.

143 Lakeview Cove

Previously loved home. Not as perfect as a new home, but you get a lot more for your money! Compare the 5,445 sq. ft. lot that is 67 feet wide at the back, and 104 feet deep. It backs onto a linear pathway with a view of the golf course. The large front deck is the perfect place to catch a few rays as you enjoy your morning coffee. As you enter the home you will find the main floor den with French doors. Currently, this is being used as a dog grooming studio, so it will certainly accommodate your home office needs. The main floor laundry has an entrance from the attached double car garage. You will love the easy-care slate tile flooring that runs from the front entry all the way to the kitchen & eating nook including the 2 piece bath. There is only a bit of carpet on the stairs, as it has been replaced with easy vinyl plank flooring so the dogs and the kids can play worry-free. The large kitchen has a walk-in pantry and frosted glass cabinets with a large island. The kitchen overlooks the oversized nook and great room so you can engage with your family while preparing dinner. The yard is fully fenced and features an interlocking patio, a storage shed, and a lawn for the kids. The 2nd level features a huge master bedroom with a jetted tub, separate shower and walk-in closet in the en suite. There are three bedrooms up with a bonus room that is being used as a fourth bedroom. The basement is undeveloped. So if you could use a 2,194 sq. ft. home, with a large fenced yard this house is experienced at creating a warm loving home for a family to live and love in.
