Kevin McKay Is A Second Generation Realtor.
Growing up in a house where both parent are Realtors, gave Kevin a unique exposure to this industry. He has learned a lot from us, and in turn we are learning a lot from him. Kevin McKay has taken an interest in video production and drone operation. He will take a drone up and video your property, and the neighbourhood showing the property’s proximity to schools, parks, shopping. He then switchs to a different camera and films an actual walk-thru of the home. He also takes multiple shots of the home to produce HDR photos of the home.
Our Office Is In Chestermere.
We would not want to discuss our personal business in a coffee shop. So we have an office right here in Chestermere.
