Chestermere Lake is one of Calgary’s Fastest Growing Communities.
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.
The lake offers many recreational opportunities for all seasons. In the summer, there is water-skiing, sailing, fishing, windsurfing, canoeing and swimming.
In the fall and spring you will enjoy the migrating birds, walks along the shoreline and the quietness of the community. 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. The ice-fishing in the winter has seen many trophy fish caught. There is skating on the lake and on the ponds and canals that run throughout the community.

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.
