It would be hard not to notice, as the leading realtor in Gleniffer Lake, that rentals of cottages and RV spaces have gotten a lot more popular in recent years. For some, it’s a matter of convenience; we are, after all, only about 75 miles away from both Calgary and Edmonton. For others, however, coming up to the most beautiful part of Alberta for short-term stay is just a way to experience a place they have heard so much about from friends or colleagues.
In most cases, these folks don’t have any intention of actually buying a vacation property around our beautiful lake resort… which makes it ironic that so many of them do.
What happens in between? Is the secret that we slip them some kind of mood-altering tablet, or maybe give them the hard sell on a timeshare presentation? Actually, few things could be further from the truth. I like to hand out literature about the area to men and women who ask for it, but that’s about it. And yet, I get the strange feeling that I’ll be seeing so many of them again soon.
Here’s why: After years of living here myself, I know just how enticing buying a little slice of heaven can be. In fact, that’s how I ended up being the main realtor for Gleniffer Lake – I came up once, and just found it so hard to leave. And why wouldn’t someone love it? Besides the gorgeous Lake, wide open spaces, great summer weather, and huge variety of outdoor activities – including golf and boating, we have some of the best people on earth. From young couples to retirees, the friends you’ll make here will have you coming back time and time again.
So many people who come up to Gleniffer Lake every summer to try one of our rentals tell me they’re “just looking around.” I always let them, even when I know all the reasons they’ll probably change their minds later.
