We operated the RE/MAX in Chestermere at 124 East Chestermere Dr. for 7 years.We decided that we would rather help buyers and sellers in Chestermere than have the hassle of running a real estate brokerage. We are now part of the team at Engel & Voelkers Calgary.
Buyers and Seller’s should have an agent that specializes in the neighbourhood they are buying or selling in. Agents just don’t know what they don’t know about a community if they are not working in it every day.
We are so happy to be with a global real estate company that values our life’s-work of promoting our community of Chestermere Alberta. Engel & Völkers makes us be the best Advisors that we can be. They give us the tools, training and global reach to do this better than anyone else can.
We do things that other real estate agents will not. We go and look at all the listings in Chestermere, so we personally experience the homes that are on the market. We know why the homes that sold did, why they sold for what they did, or why they did not sell. We know the different areas, and how they compare price wise to others. We know the good deals and cannot wait to tell our clients about them. We know the homes that have been taken off the market for “a rest”, we know many homes that have not hit the market yet. We also know when a seller has an unrealistic expectation. We can help them understand market position, so they can decide if it is the right time for them to sell or not.
We all go to Monday morning meetings and share our listings with each other. We help each other. We are a group of real estate agents that like and know each other. This is the best office we have worked in in 28 years, (including our own brokerage). If an agent from our office has a buyer or seller for Chestermere, we will can help them or they will refer their client to us.
We have extra training weekly at 7 am, where we work on our skills together. We also have workshops where we help each other with our websites, marketing and implementation of company tools.
We have an incredible management team that is in the market selling homes today, so they understand and help us overcome the challenges that we face.
We reach incoming relocation’s through our extensive global network on sites like Zillow, James Edition, Juwai, EVRealEstate.com and 800 other real estate websites. We are working with a buyer who became aware of us on Zillow. They came to our open house in December looking for a lakefront home we are showing them homes on the market and homes that have not hit the market yet.
Engel & Völkers is a lifestyle brand and Chestermere has an amazing lifestyle to offer.

We are leveraging the amazing tools that Engel & Völkers provides to share the Chestermere story with the 11,220 advisors in our 800 shops in 32 countries.
