If you are tired of driving into Calgary to get what you need you won't have to wait longer than 2012.  Trinity Development Group got approval from the city of Calgary for the rezoning  to convert fields east of Stoney Trail near 17th Avenue S.E. into a 1.5-million-square-foot retail complex tentatively named East Hills. It will be the size of Deerfoot Meadows. I don't know about you, but the less often I have to drive into Calgary the happier I am. Follow this link for the complete article from the Calgary Herald. http://www.calgaryherald.com/news/Rezoning+approved+retail+centre/2539707/story.html#ixzz0gPw2b1ey

Chestermere Real Estate's Team Members: Doug Mckay, Marjorie Mckay, Paul Kautz, Ryan Kautz and administrative goddess Michelle Eldjarson. Doug and I (Marjorie) moved to Chestermere in 1991 with our young family. Although we were involved in real estate development we were not licensed realtors at that time. I earned my real estate license in 1992 and utilized my sales and marketing skills to market our own condominium projects. That same year I sold my first listing in Chestermere. Doug joined my venture earning his license the following year (1993) and we have been working together, sharing our passion for selling homes ever since. The Chestermere market has seen many ups and downs during the past 17 years. We have seen many realtors come and gobut through it all, we have been consiste...

CN has announced that they will be building a $100 million Canadian National Railway Logistics Park to open by 2013.    It will be a 680 Acre railway park.  This will mean a lot of jobs for this area.  Jobs where you do not have to go into Calgary to work.  Just a 5 minute drive from Chestermere to work.  This corridor has been growing with the addition of Stoney Trail, getting around has been a lot faster.  You can pick up Stoney Trail just 5 miles from Chestermere, to get to the airport very quickly, and currently the traffic levels on Stoney Trail are minimal.  This is just another advantage that Chestermere offers residents.  Along with a 750 acre lake, 4 elementary schools, a 540,000 sq. ft. Armourdome to be built soon , Chestermere has a lot to offer a family.  If you are looking ...

Kinniburgh is a beautiful development on the East side of Chestermere Lake.  With lots at 50 feet wide this will be a very nice development.  Unlike most developments the trees, roads, landscaping and even a small lake are already in.  This development has easy access to 16 Ave. (Trans Canada Highway) and Glenmore Trail.  Yet this development is located well away from the highway.  Most lots are walk-out or walk-up lots.  There are some lots backing onto the water and there are also some very nice homes started here.  Please call us if you would like more information on this development.

Our live webcam is up and working now.  right on our home page at www.ChestermereRealEstate.com This is streaming video.  A live webcam so you can see what the actual conditions are on the lake right now.  This is the same camera that they use at the Olympic Oval.  It is not so exciting now, unless you are lucky enough to catch a sunset, but come summer there will be a lot of activity that you can see from here.  We wanted the public to see how beautiful Chestermere Lake is year around.  We know a lot of our friends will be checking out the water conditions from their offices... We  hope you enjoy this view of our Chestermere Lake. Marjorie and Doug McKay
