The docks are out, the boats are in the water, and the farmer’s markets are open! The sites and sounds of spring are a sight to behold in lake country. From a real estate perspective, spring brings the new listings. It is a time of year where change is in full swing. Many of our sellers are often older and have enjoyed many years with fond memories where it has come time to sell. This year alone, form our 19 sales ends so far this year, 6 of our clients have been over 80, and 2 are over 90. Now the buyers, the excitement of youth and young families coming into lake country also reflect the spring of life.
It is so refreshing to be blessed with a career that lets you watch life unfold. The seniors leaving usually have incredible peace of mind knowing they’ve been blessed with such a life, and the youth happily looking towards their future.
I’m so impressed with our team of specialists that allow this transition to take place stress-free.
I’d like to send out a message of thanks to the beautiful people who have bought and sold through us so far this year and look forward to those to come. For more information on this wonderful life give us a call.

Enthusiasm Is generally misunderstood word – Enthusiasm is simply faith in motion and is what gives people comfort in dealing with you as a salesperson. (Yes Salesperson) Because pure enthusiasm is faith in one’s self and one’s cause or the belief in ones calling. My current calling is selling lake property and promoting lake country.
My enthusiasm gives my clients comfort and knowingness they are trying their best.
Most people refer to enthusiasm as an animated feeling, but it really is a belief, a concentration of will that can power the believer through difficult times and open up a road to success when others give up. In my business, this is helping a buyer find his unique property or selling a lake property to the right person and hanging that sold sign.
Enthusiasm knows nothing but success. Enthusiasm with a moderate degree of wisdom will carry a person further than any amount of intellect without it. Top realtors are not necessarily people of genius as much as people of strong convictions that have an enduring capacity for hard work impelled with strong determination.
This gives my clients faith that all that can be done is being done. This is how a good business grows. This belief can vibrate through not only a person or a family but through an entire community.
Lake country is my community and one of the keys I use to build my business.

Thank You Lake Country and the buyers who are hoping to relocate in our area. You made my first two weeks back from my winter home in California more than exceptional. We have managed to create a lot in this short period. I want to thank the three buyers who have bought from us as well as the now sellers that have trusted with this most special heirloom “their lake property.” This coming week you will see our bulletin boardsget populated with our new listings. We are placing new ads in the Community voice in Lac Ste Anne and Lake Wabamun. Plus you will now find us at our usual position of Number 1 in most google lake searches.
I invite all who have questions either entering our leaving our market to reach, and we will be more than to answer any question you may have.
That’s it for now. See you in lake country!!!!

After a successful 2019 campaign in Lake Country I was pleased to see we are holding our own. By comparison the Edmonton Market is much lower in volume and value, but Lake Country is going strong. “Uncertainty” is a word that might be weighing on people’s mind’s with respect to the market. I’m maybe one of a few Realtors still in the business after the total market collapse in 1983. This collapse was caused by two major issues, interest rates and the National Energy policy that came to be known as the NEP.
Fortunately, today we are only dealing with one of those factors that would contribute to our lack of an energy policy that is creating an atmosphere leading to a lack in investments and job loss. Here again I will use the word “uncertainty”. This uncertainty in the early ’80s cost many people everything, yet a minority of others prospered. We can help you to be in the winning group.
In my 35 years of being involved in the industry, I see one word as well. The word I see is opportunity. I’ve watched both buyers and sellers profit in the 1983 – 1986 market despite the so-called recession where we saw the number of Realtors drop from a high in 1983 of 3300 to less than 1600 by 1986.
Edmonton Lake Property has designed an opportunity diagnosis of the industry and can advise you where, when and should you buy or sell, and my staff and I would love to share it with you.
While others are gearing down, we are ramping up. We invite you to give us a call for either a free home seller consultation or a buyer’s investment in lake property consultation to see how we can make your real estate experience profitable.
Please give us a call at 780-991-5107. Please look at our first advertisement of 2019 to learn more. We look forward to seeing you soon. Look for our New Website – 2nd site coming in April www.edmontonlakeproperty.realestate.

Thank you to lake country and especially the wonderful people who bought and sold through us in 2018 allowing me to qualify among the TOP 5% of all Edmonton Realtors in 2018!
Mon, 31 Dec
Before I close out 2018, I would like to say thank you from the bottom of my heart to our 120 plus friends/customers who helped make 2018 the 3rd most productive year for us at Edmonton Lake Property.
Not only were we successful we were also able to hold prices in lake country despite the drop in Edmonton area real estate. We even closed out the year with 1 million-plus sale on Rizzie Beach.
Like most years where we add improvement to our system, 2019 will be one of growth in mass marketing and to expose more buyers into our area. Our main push will be a series of seminars in Edmonton letting others know about our wonderful communities.
Enough of the past and the future, happiness lies in the here and now, I wish you all a Happy Safe New Year – Wayne William Heine

Despite winter lasting longer than usual Wayne William Heine at Edmonton Lake Property reports high-end activity has been brisk the last few months. Even though lake season doesn’t really begin until May, already 5 sales over $680, 000 dollars has happened with two being over a million dollars which has already matched all of 2017.
Wayne says the known buyers looking for high-end homes is unmatched. In the last 7yrs, he has sold lake property in which Wayne has personally been involved in all MLS sales over $800,000 in those years at Lake Wabamun. He says the known list of buyers actively looking for lake-front includes surgeons, ceos and even a few NHL hockey players. This demand is high despite inventory going into May is almost non-existent.
This secret is out of the bag, lake country that gives you a wonderful year-round recreational experience is less than 40 minutes from Edmonton. It is taking off for many reasons including the fact that all new lakefront in Alberta has to be 150 feet from the lake making established subdivisions offering the only true Lakefront available. In 2012 there were 2 sales over $500,000, the most expensive being $525,000. This year we have 5 sales over $680,000.
This creates a wonderful opportunity for our off lake buyers as well as other lakes. Wayne says we’ve already had a sale at Isle lake for $495,000 this year, more expensive than any sale in 2017 on the lake.
Lake communities around the lakes are turning into investment opportunities with the price differences with lakefront being so wide. Wayne states that all lake community owners have wonderful access to the lake as far as boating and beach privileges that are not offered to the general public. Yes, Wayne says membership has its privileges.
I guess while out enjoying lake country in 2018, take a minute to look over our wonderful investment opportunities. You could be adding a whole lot of summer fun to your life and securing your future at the same time.

A lake property is not a static place. It is always changing, it changes with the season, it changes with every new item you bring into the home and every improvement you make. A lake property is truly an investment but not only in financial terms.
I found in selling lake property over the last 7 seasons, owning a lake property improves the way we think of ourselves, it makes the family more functional. Owning a lake house is really a celebration of life. Your lake house can be a place of personal expression by creating an environment that is alive, helping you find the true you.
Sometimes when starting to think about a lake property there are many levels to enter the market. Myself and my staff at Edmonton Lake Property are enriched with knowledge and love for the area and you will find we are all ready to share.
Look for our new information Bulletin Boards on location at the following locations:
- Seba Beach – Derby General Store
- Wabamun – Rays Market
- Fallis – General Store
- Darwell – Trading Post
I ask you while you are there take a minute to meet and support our local merchants. I wish you a wonderful Easter and a warm spring market.
