Another Rave Review From a McKelvie Group Client!



We would like to send out a huge thank you to Megan for taking the time to share about her positive experience working with the McKelvie group to sell her home and buy another.  We greatly value feedback from our clients, asking each of them to complete a feedback form after working with us.  Here is what Megan had to say…


Did you feel well informed throughout the process?  

Megan: “Your team was well organized and I felt well informed yet not bombarded with correspondence.”


Would you feel comfortable recommending us to friends and family? 

Megan:  “I already have!”


Please provide us with any comments you have with regards to the quality of service we provided.  

Megan:  “We had the pleasure of working with all 4 team members throughout our purchasing and selling process. Your team was always available and we never felt hurried or pressured. We felt that we were listened to and then future properties met our criteria when we were buying. As for selling, the process went smoothly, there was a ton of interest right away. We loved the booking company that was used which made booking showings with 2 young kids relatively painless! We appreciated the expertise and knowledge of this team which helped in guiding this process from start to finish. Your team was extremely organized and truly worked as a team. We are thrilled with the experience we had and would not hesitate to use your team again!”


In what, if any, areas could we improve our service? 

Megan:  “I truly don’t have one suggestion. Not only was your core team a pleasure to work with, so was your photographer and any other personnel. I also must thank your team for all the suggestions for contractors to help us out with a few small jobs along the way. It is obvious why you are such a successful team!  THANK YOU!”

2015 McKelvie Group Pumpkin Giveaway Is A Huge Success!!

facebook thankyou

I want to extend a warm thank-you to everyone who contributed to make our 17thannual Pumpkin Giveaway a huge success! Twenty-five bins of pumpkins were delivered to the Tuscany Club at 6:30 am on a chilly Saturday morning and by 8:30 it had been transformed into our best pumpkin patch ever.

We don’t have the weight count from the Food Bank yet, but we collected a record amount of both food and cash donations.

Congratulations to Morgan and Georgia – this years winners of the colouring contest and the excited recipients of Toys R Us gift certificates.

Thank you very much to the Tuscany Sobey’s for selling us the pumpkins at cost, as well as donating hot chocolate, to the Tuscany Starbucks for their kind donation of coffee and condiments, to John at the Tuscany Club for the loan of tables, chairs and for promoting Pumpkin Day, to The Tuscany Sun and Homes and Land magazines for promoting the event and ad space, and to my amazing team and their families for their contribution of time, effort and muscle moving pumpkins and – most of all – to everyone who turned out to support such a worthy cause.

Community spirit is alive and well and Saturday’s turnout was a heart-warming example.  Thank you!

Kelly McKelvie

Calgary Zombie Evasion Run


After visiting our Pumpkin Giveaway from 9am-1pm Saturday, October 24, support the Calgary Food Bank with another fun event:


This trail run event takes place at North Glenmore Park and each runner will wear a flag football-style belt.

Run fast! Zombies will be on the chase – but be aware of your surroundings – the park is infested.  You never know where they will appear.

If you make it through the course with any of your flags left, you’ve finished “alive”! If the zombies take all of your flags….you’ve become infected and will finish as a part of the “undead”.

Your entry provides you with 1 health flag.  Donate to get up to  3 more!
The more flags (max of 4) the more chances of survival!  For every $20 raised or 3 pounds of food you get 1 flag (max 3 flags).
